Qatar is undoubtedly the best airline in the world. Very impressed with their all around service and customer care.
The airport staff of Qatar airlines was UNFRIENDLY and UNHELPFUL. They all acted like we were bothering them. They gave no help in moving from one station to another. In general they gave an extremely bad first impression of Qatar airlines!!
Pros: "I would have appreciated that with ALL required paperwork, my stay at check in point would have lasted a little less than two hours I spent standing and waiting for a feedback."
Cons: "Updating clients and offering a seat if it’s a long wait could have improved the situation. It is on reception that the business gets its impression. Thanks."
Pros: "Everything great!"
Pros: "Crew was great. They made up for mistakes in a positive and amenable way."
Cons: "Flight was late. There was no communication about it. The flight from Joburg to Doha was late, therefore I missed my connection. The delay was not officially communicated to any of the passengers — no announcements made, no representatives to talk to at the gate — until well past the time that we should have been in the air. It was distressing."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and professional"
Cons: "Food wasn't great"
Pros: "Crew is amazing"
Cons: "The Entertainment screen wasn’t working"
Pros: "was the seat super comfort"
Cons: "if the have variety of food provided will be better"
Pros: "Great crew and food. Nice economy class."
Pros: "Nice crew, 1 hr free WiFi"
Cons: "Significant delay on jetway, temps uncomfortable,"
Pros: "Flight was 80% empty, but it was amazing anyway, slept through most of it"
Cons: "Staff constantly woke me up for snacks and drinks, which is good on one hand but I was sleeping so deep that it was a bit annoying."
Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "I found my seat a bit uncomfortable for this leg of the jurney"
Pros: "The service of the cabin was great!"
Cons: "The food was not of the quality I would have expected from the expectation created by the airlines marketing. We boarded close to a full hour later than scheduled and the boarding process was very slow."
Pros: "Excellent entertainment very friendly crew"
Cons: "Did not make this flight."
Pros: "Entertainment is very good"
Cons: "it felt like sitting in a sardine box"
Pros: "decent leg room. the staff was accommodating"

Pros: "Staff is friendly"
Cons: "The seats are tight and I am a slim person"
Pros: "Fantastic service, very friendly staff who are always happy to help"
Cons: "Should have internet free of charge in flight"
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "The change of my flight schedule for the entire journey was done without giving me any options (departure flights from origin and return). It would have caused me inconvenience if the change of time does not allow me to adjust my plans."
Pros: "Great flight. Everything was good. The only very small issue is hey offer WiFi but even if you pay the allocation of data make you feel like you living in the 1990. 10 meg free and 300 meg for a whole flight is a complete joke, especially for USD 30. They could manage protocols but give a reasonable service."
Pros: "Qatar is a reliable airline."
Cons: "No matter how many times I have traveled with Qatar (5 international flights in the last year); I still do not receive any benefits such a priority boarding or upgrades."
Pros: "The service from check-in till landing was on the ball and superb. They were friendly and eager to assist with everything. They have the latest movies and shows to watch on their in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "great crew and food."
Cons: "being charged excess baggage when one suitcase weigh under weight. Having to wait at the terminal for a hour and a half because of bad weather -- not the pilot's fault"
Cons: "Airport hotel costs around 350$ No entry visa for layovers exceeds 8 hours as they announced The answer they’re not giving entry visas is you bought a discounted ticket!!"
Pros: "The plane from Johannesburg to Doha was Fine but not as wonderful and comfortable As flight from Doha to Chicago"
Cons: "They lost my bag and that’s disappointing considering I have my bank account details in that bag. Very disappointed by this"
Pros: "I was actually impressed with the entertainment selection :)"
Cons: "The economy seats are just unfortunately not a place you can get comfortable enough to sleep. On 14 hour flights one hopes to sleep."
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Hard cushioning and narrow seats on the 787"
Pros: "Good in-flight service"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Pros: "In general the crew was very nice."
Cons: "The dreamliner is a little tight in relation to the B777. The Kosher meals very all the same for breakfast lunch and snack"
Cons: "1. rude staff - i stood in Jburg at the counter for 13 minutes (i checked my clock) while 8 staff ladies spoke among themselves in a myriad of languages. FINALLY one lady asked if i had been helped! I said no and she was clearly less than thrilled to be the one to help with my question. i literally just wanted to ask if my seat assignment was a window, middle or aisle, but it was like i was the bane of her existence and i interrupted their social hour. On my outbound flight (ORD to DOH) I also watched three staff members be beyond rude to guest after guest at the check in counter regarding baggage when they came forward to "re check-in" which was a new requirement for most people. There was a lot of general confusion on behalf of the consumers and the staff was NOT the least bit patient or helpful in explaining what they needed from us or why this flight had different procedures than normal. I still don't know why they were so fussy about baggage and made everyone re check in at the gate in fact. And they didnt do it to my baggage so i have no idea why they were so rude to some and completely left others alone. (didn't seem to have to do with size, carrying of electronics, i don't know?) 2. the physical flight - you changed my original flight time to something that was REALLY close for my connection from DOH to CDG, so you instead bumped me to a later flight without consulting me. it would have caused me to miss a connection flight I booked separately through EasyJet from Pairs to my home airport BIQ. I had to figure that out on my own. RUSH through Doha to make my 35 min connection and barely was allowed to board my onward Paris flight by the Qatar gate staff which was only cutting it close as a result of YOUR changes! Yet i was treated like i was somehow "late" and wouldn't be able to board ??? Again incredibly rude staff. Subsequently you lost my luggage because the connection was too tight. i landed on Friday and it didn't catch up to me until Tuesday. Not one person has said sorry or offered any restitution. And this is honestly what upsets me the most. I doubt anyone even reads this. pathetic. I work for a travel club and since Monday (so in 4 days) I have actively reached out to 4 clients to cancel and re-booked their Qatar airways flight to another carrier to get them to Johannesburg. They will be doing the same safari experience I did, but I will NOT recommend and book my clients on Qatar after my experience."
Cons: "You canceled our flight in the last minute. we were starting our holidays and missed one day included the booking reservation. We didn't get any refund regarding this issue. On the other hand, i booked my special meal and never received it."
Pros: "The flight was on time, not full and the crew and the entertainment was excellent. Very happy with the experience of flying on Qatar Airways from Johannesburg to Miami."
Cons: "Everything was well, the food was good not great (even for airplane food) and the only other issue is it seemed like trash from our drinks and food services was picked up for quite a while or until we brought it to the flight attendants ourselves."
Pros: "landed safely"
Cons: "Had to claim bags at Doha and go through multiple security screenings to board connecting flight. At one point all the security was not functioning and we were packed up in lines. Barely had time to stop at the restroom before final security check where it was all so disorganized. After that check we were told that if we left we had to go through security again. Would have been nice to know that upfront. It was a madhouse going through that final security check and my husband's wallet was lost for a bit. No one really tried to help and we were told to move aside. Finally someone saw that it had fallen beside one of the counters. It was all horrible. Because of all this our 5 hour layover was a hassle with no time for food, etc. The whole airport experience was confusing and badly handled."
Pros: "Excellent in every way. Clearly a top tier airlines. I will choose Qatar Airlines at every opportunity."
Cons: "Kayak/priceline re-booked my flight for my sister and I from SAA to BA, but failed to completely reissue us tickets. When we checked in for the flight, we had no ticket for the first leg of the flight, but we had tickets for the remaining flights. We immediately called to fix this problem, but due to slow customer service, we weren't issued tickets in time and the flight left without us. We missed all remaining connecting flights and were forced to buy New tickets. Now we have to work with kayak/priceline to get all my money back due to their error. We came back a day later than expected and missed going back to work."
Pros: "Seat and space"
Cons: "Food was pathetic."
Pros: "I enjoyed the staff"
Cons: "The screens were old school and I HS a hard time getting it to work Also the sleep mask I received had sticky stuff all over it when I opened the package."
Pros: "Excellent Cabin Crews, Flights on time"
Cons: "Food is mediocre at best, comfort on 787 is terrible."
Cons: "Because of poor connection, arrived for flight 15 min. before departure. Gate agent wouldn't allow us to board and wouldn't help us rebook. Offered no help."
Pros: "Seat space. Stevice. Terminal."
Cons: "Attendant was rude and never really finished service, never remembered any requests and consistently skipped guests when providing food or drink service, cabin kept oscillating between either too hot or too cold."
Cons: "We took off in a terrible storm with lightning striking all around the plane. Very rough, lightning which scared the hell out of both me and my wife."
Pros: "Amazing and efficient when we had to be rerouted due to the hurricane we had excellent service and care at the hotel which made my stay for a short while a memorable"
Cons: "The plane was quite congested as the seats were very narrow coming back to Miami"
Pros: "Entertainment was great!"
Cons: "The check-in was stressful and congested."
Cons: "They haven't all update information about covid update, workers had no idea about anything, rude and unhelpful I had to miss my flight because of their mess, stay at the airport for 4 hours to get my luggage back and get a hotel."
Pros: "Crew and flight where amazing. Thank you"
Cons: "All the staff at the boarding part seem like they unorganized anything. They let all business passengers got it first but they didn’t open the gate door untill all passengers came through. We have to stuck by the gate door for 10-15 min. They not say anything what happened and any apologies word."
Pros: "Food was better"
Cons: "Seating was not tight"
Cons: "Food is not great and the flight was delayed by an hour"
Cons: "Flight delayed missed connection lost bag"
Cons: "I didnt like this flight at all. I got delaied 2 hours at the turkish airport plus the 7 hours lay over, total 9 hours, the gate travel service didnt give us any reason for the dealy, the customes gathered us in a small area where there is no seats and the bathroom was smelling so bad, we were stsrving and not even water been served to us, i missed my ride to the hotel in Amman, and missed my work breakfast orientation."
Cons: "Food. Lack of vegetarian options in 2nd leg."
Pros: "Attractive business class fares. Among the best business class."
Cons: "Don't underestimate the additional hours. The stopover in Istanbul is definitely a negative (crowded, unpractical airport). Next time I will probably stick to European airlines, if the fare difference is reasonable."
Cons: "I didn’t like The flight from Istanbul to Amman they changed my seat and put me next to a baby that throw up all over and I couldn’t have one minute of peace all flight long"
Pros: "We get turkey on time waiting in the air port for 9:30 hour then we get the plane and waiting two more hours on the ground so the flight very tiering I will never take Turkish airlines again in the pass never happened I don’t know happened to the management ???"
Cons: "My flight take 32 hours the price not worth it ,,, they said if you stay ten ours they give us a hotel room they did not they give us a sorry meal ,,, the food court very crowded and mangment"
Pros: "Care from the crew and consideration"
Cons: "the wait for 9 hours at the airport is horrible with the airport being bad and no place to relax"
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: "I have flown Turkish Air many times for the past 8 years and they are a solid airline. They have very good food for airplane food, and a decent entertainment center."
Cons: "Unfortunately they have moved away from their Exonomy Plus seats that were great and ample room, whereas now their seating in exonomy is very cramped. They also used to have nice amenities on long international flights like a hot towel and some Turkish Delight before takeoff and landing, but they no longer have that. And my biggest complaint is that they keep their planes unbearably hot most ost of the time. It’s by far the most frustrating thing when your cramped in their tiny spaces for 11 hours."
Pros: "Crew very pleasant. No delay."
Pros: "Food, service, flight comfort"
Cons: "Seat selection got messed up and crew helped put us back together as a family."
Cons: "My bag didn’t come"
Cons: "The lack of communication with the employee who had my boarding pass and did not provide the wheel chair. I waited in an area waiting, he moved to another area without letting me know. Finally I nearly made it to the gate, on the bus and on the plane. It did not give me the chance to relax at the lounge as I paid for a business class ticket. I felt not being taken care of properly and as expected."
Cons: "2 hours delay for no good reason."
Pros: "Entertainment system was great. Plenty of movies, games, & tv shows available. Food was good - two full meals during 10 hr. Flight to and from Chicago. Seats, even in economy, were comfortable. Was very happy to learn that baggage would be checked thru to Denver from Athens, even though plane changes were made in Istanbul and Chicago. The two bags did not make the Chicago/Denver transfer, but were on the next United flight an hour later."
Cons: "Boarding process in Athens and Istanbul was confusing. Although boarding groups were assigned, none were used that we could tell. Just mass lineups, with little or no organization that we could see."
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: "Dinner served was very good, American Airlines need to learn from foreign airlines."
Cons: "Comfort of the seats."
Cons: "overall good experience"
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."
Pros: "Service, food, staff—all excellent!"
Cons: "The cabins on both flights were too warm."
Pros: "Baku airport stunning. Better dessert. Helpful crew. Perfectly on time."
Cons: "Salad lame. Istanbul airport needs upgrade. Gate change twice in 2 hrs, no good announcement system. Baku airport baggage carousel not up to the standard of the Terminal glory."
Pros: "Not like at all"
Cons: "Not like food not like service"
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: "Even though I had two different bookings for connections, since they were all handled by them, they offered me to send my lugagge to the final destination"
Cons: "In all the flights I took with them (7 so far), Service was reactive, not proactive. In fact, there was one time in which I asked for some water in a long flight (because they dont offer from time to time as other companies do, and I was truly polite in my request) and the guy from the crew told me 'please go and fetch'. I had to point these two huge guys sleeping next to me I had no relation with (I was at the window seat) for him to realize that he was being ridiculous."
Pros: "Comfort, food, staff, everything"
Cons: "After ordering Asian vegetarian meal, I got pasta. That was disappointing"
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."
Pros: "The food and movies were the only good thing there"
Cons: "1. Airport wasn't air conditioned in Istanbul people were sweating 2. Very Poor customer service in Istanbul , no one of the employees there were able to smile at the whole airport 3.7 hrs wait in the airport , Both flights were packed and full of kids"
Pros: "The care taken to wrap the electronic equipment you were mandated to confiscate. That part was handled well"
Cons: "Retrieving the electronic equipment was a chaotic nightmare. There was no order. There were two lines where passenger did line up in than others cut the line claiming they had connecting flights. Those in charge never verified whether they were connecting to another flight. Never asked for their boarding pass. I heard some laughing saying they did no have connecting flights. I better job and method of handling this situation is needed as long as the ban is in effect. Otherwise, Turkish airlines is fine. My wife and I have traveled most airlines and travel extensively. So, we are aware of good service and bad. Your service minus the electronic equipment is good."
Pros: "Food from Cape Town to Istanbul was very tasty and juicy. Yummy."
Pros: "First time flying with Turkish. On time, smooth takeoff/landing, top notch food, entertainment, easiest and most comfortable transatlantic flight I've ever been on. Will continue to fly Turkish every time I have the option to"
Cons: "Everything was top notch"
Pros: "Amazing food! Very nice crew and excellent flight."
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"
Cons: "My logged didn't arrived to Amman I received one and I miss one TAG number TK633655"
Pros: "Food is excellent, staff great."
Cons: "Not nearly enough leg room for an international flight!!"
Pros: "Excellent serice by airline crew nice food l like Tayip erdogan .end l like Turkiye and llike Turkish arlanes, Sincerely your Customer Cabir Senalan"
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."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "That the anytime snacks that was offered was not available for passengers"
Pros: "As good as long flights can be."
Pros: "The ride was comfortable and smooth. I loved the Turkish Air lounge in Istanbul and also the movie screen was easy to use, although there was a problem with the screen on my flight from Istanbul to Hong Kong."
Cons: "The food was good but some of the appetizers were not that good. The red wine was not so good, tasted cheap."
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!"
Travelling with a baby is always challenging, it was further challenging when your upfront reserved seats were changed without you being given any notice and you are a Gold Star Alliance customer.
Good value for money. Small snack and free drinks. And most important: on time!
Pros: "Modern, clean airplane with spacious seating and attentive crew."

Pros: "The flight was delayed a bit, about a half hour in total, but the staff on the plane were very courteous. We were served a nice Greek meal even though the flight was only 3.5 hours long. Seats were comfortable. US airlines could learn a lot from Aegean."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 30 minutes"
Cons: "We couldn’t check in until 90 minutes before Departure."
Cons: "Gate agents were overwhelmed and incredibly rude. We of course didn't make connection. Lost our luggage. And now waitingbto board at 4:30 am. Just avoid. I fly a lot and they have topped my list of airlines to avoid."

Cons: "My only complaint is the €60 Euros for my checked bag. That was painful."
Cons: "too many fussy babies crying and screaming."
Pros: "The best crew ever, they make you feel home."
Cons: "Procedures for handling sick elderly passenger. One crew member should take initiative and deal with sick person and handle calling for a doctor on board ."
Pros: "Timing and cleanliness"
Pros: "I enjoyed the crew and the food."
Cons: "Not enough room. I'm not a tall person and my legs we're smashed against the seat. The person behind me was an adult and kept hitting my seat so I could get no sleep."

Cons: "Waiting more than 3 hours in Athens"
Pros: "It was fine"
Cons: "Staff is rude. We are the paying customer"
Pros: "The flight was ok"
Cons: "The airline didn't warn that the ticket doesn't include luggage. Other airlines do. Also no word about it in the tickets. Even airline representative wasn't able to find any mention about no checked in luggage. Ticket price was twice more expensive than the lowcost ones. For me it felt like a scam. Especially they had very few passengers and it seems they're doing this intentionally"
Pros: "Crew were very helpful and courteous"
Pros: "extra seat room. Very nice crew."
Lufthansa business class offers exceptional service. Food and wine selection was good. Entertainment was fair - they need better movie choices.
The boarding at the Vienna airport was an absolute chaos; no rhyme or reason, no order just everyone shoving; I thought I was in some 3rd world country where the concept of organization and order has not reached 21st century. The web site is one of the worst, not intuitive or clear at all; it took me forever to book a seat and having to pay for it, another slap in the face. I traveled with Austrian air many times but this was just so frustrating and disappointing.
I was very pleased with everything.
Same problem with aeroplan
Cons: "lastminute.com was completely unhelpful in assisting with any changes to my itinerary. They repeatedly provided me with incorrect information that sent me on a wild goose chase."
Pros: "Stewards dis perfect job"
Pros: "The crew. The punctuality."
Pros: "Seat was very comfortable and lots of leg room. Food was good."
Pros: "Awful airline. Will never get tickets through you again."

Pros: "Will never purchase tickets through kayak ever again"
Pros: "Very efficient and fuss free. Just what I was looking for from a short haul flight!"
Cons: "The snacks are super small, which isn’t unexpected when the flight time is so short."
Pros: "Rude inconsiderate staff. Terrible plane"
Pros: "For short flight the seats are ok with space for the legs"
Cons: "The flight was 30 minutes delayed"
Pros: "They DID NOT let me aboard the airline!!! Austerian airline is the worst EVER, because they are not even helping me to get a credit to fly Monday to Israel. The of ticket counter at ORD were treating me as a dirt. And unwelcome. I was trying to reason with them, they did NOT want to help."
Cons: "It would have been better if back to back with priceline helped me out to get to another flight & they won’t even credit my ticket, so I LOST about $1200 & was excited for my vacation. They were unhelpful & they kept putting me untold & hanging up on me with their ticket agency on phone too."
Pros: "On time, best connection for me, earning miles on my program. I booked based on time and cost, didn't even pay attention to what airline."
Cons: "No food, plane felt pretty old and not so clean. Smaller seats than the other flights I had with Lufthansa. Otherwise, it was fine. I had a pretty bad earache on that particular flight, so I liked it less than I might have otherwise. Something didn't feel right, pressure wrong or something."
Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "Couldn’t get on the flight due to two cancellations of prior connecting flights. Utterly, totally unacceptable - and no explanation of why."
Pros: "Fast flight , friendly staff , ok food"
Cons: "I couldn’t push my seat back and because of that I was awake the whole flight (night flight)"
Cons: "They were delayed on every one of my flights - missed connecting flight and had to be booked on a new flight which got in a midnight. Terrible!!"
Pros: "The seats were very nice, and I found it very pleasing that everything was colour coordinated. (the small details in red and the rest in gray). The flight attendants were so happy and upbeat, it lifted your mood as well! I believe that we left a few minutes early, as boarding was completed early. And thefood? Mind-blowing for airplane food. I really enjoyed this flight."
Cons: "There wasn’t much I didn’t like about the flight. Sometimes the announcements were very slightly difficult to hear (accents and whatnot,) but you could still tell what they were saying."
Pros: "Friendly staff with great service"
Cons: "I didn't like that I paid for a ticket months ago and checked in my bags and then was told that there's no room the plain is full"
Pros: "Good attention and food"
Pros: "The stewardess is very polite and accommodating n"
Pros: "Crew was nice and very accommodating. Food service timing was good. Restrooms serviced every one efficiently. Electronic service outlets are quite helpful and thoughtful."
Cons: "Only at boarding we were notified to be TSA screened, we ended up the last passengers to board and caused flight delay... Electronic check in did not provide food selection, specially for individuals who suffer some food allergies... Boarding process to be revised taking in consideration last minute matters to be better coordinated."
Cons: "They lost my bag and refused to deliver it to my house once it was found. It is still at the airport"
Cons: "They lost my bag and refused to deliver it to my house once it was found. It is still at the airport"
Pros: "It was a very safe trip"
Cons: "Small space in Economy class"
Cons: "Flight significantly delayed so as to almost miss my onward flight to SFO."
Pros: "Very friendly staff"
Cons: "All was well"
Pros: "Nothing stood out compared to other airlines"
Cons: "While going to the gate G11 at Vienna airprt, i slipped infront of the gate in presence of 3 male austrian airways staff who were checking there. After i got up i requested if i could get some water and they said they cannot. Finally a co passenger gave me her bottle of water. I ended up actually breaking my leg"
Pros: "Absolutely nothin Airlines was courteous enough to provide hotel which was just abt ok"
Cons: "Reschedulle of my journey to next day, everything tat followed"
Pros: "I had double seat all to myself so that was nice."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2hrs because of the strike - very annoying. The food was average for the plane foodn but the desert was excellent"
Cons: "flt was delayed 2 hours due to "employee meeting""
Pros: "flight was fast and we came into a gate instead of having to come into terminal by bus. Left on time an arrive early"
Cons: "nothing I didn't like"
Pros: "People at the desk didn't know or don't wanna say much why we have no plane"
Cons: "I arrived at Vienna on time but to Skopje we had no plans and we hade to wait till 13:40 to board"
Cons: "I will never fly Austrian again! They disrespected my family, they did not honor my reservations, and the staff was just nasty!"
Cons: "Very confusing boarding procedures. In Vienna they would check you at the gate to make sure you are in but keep you standing for a long time. I am not sure what happened but food was barely edible: breakfast eggs were like rubber and Lunch was served with a tiny sandwich. For a 10 hour flight it was not even sufficient"
Cons: "The birding officer didn't inform me about the visa requirements to cross from Dusslouf to Vinna airport. This caused a big problem for me in the airport, where I: 1- Wasn't allowed to catch my flight ti Vinnea and this was both financial and time lost for me. 2- I was locked in Dussluff airport for more than 14 hours, I was threatened to be sent back to USA or any other country. This caused physiological damage for me, as I been treated like an animal 3- I was asked to pay for my new ticket ( Dussloff - Istanbul-Amman )"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Expertise and effiency of the flight crew."
Pros: "On time, smooth takeoff and landing, friendly staff and crew"
Cons: "Everything was fine, even the legroom"
Pros: "Catering and service was superb. While linen. Course by course on China, no tray service. The food was exquisite. The wine was acceptable, mid range, with very generous pours in Riedel glassware and always the offer made of would I like anything more? The seperate coffee menu has to be experienced to be believed, basically, it's an authentic Vienna see cafe experience at 30,000 ft."
Cons: "Entertainment selection was fiddly and the offerings meagre compared to the vast libraries found on other carriers, but it was sufficient. More a quibble than a gripe from me. The noise cancelling headsets were good quality noise cancelling, and comfortable. I can't wear some other airlines headsets at all and use my ear pods with an airline adapter jack."
Cons: "Technical issues with website and online check-in. Boarding was poorly organized. Food could be better (e.g, breakfast muffin was terrible). Also availability and varienty of alcoholic drinks could be better. Flight was delayed and therefore my luggage didn't make it to connecting flight.."
Pros: "The B-767 is far superior to the B-777 in comfort; it is not so horribly crowded."
Cons: "Austrian check-in at VIE was a disaster. None of the machines could read my passport; and when you entered the data by alternative methods it STILL required a machine to read the passport--which it exactly what they were unable to do. Thus, it was a circular Catch 22. I went through six different lady agents working my way through the system, until they finally took my bag and let me go. They themselves said it was new to them and they did not fully grasp how it worked and they did not know why it did not accept me. SOFTWARE PEOPLE BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly and spoke English well. Loved the food and the service"
Our entertainment/movie and audio did not work during our flight. Two of our bags did not make it to our final home destination. No personal assistant. Everything is via email/web with no assistance.
Was starving, was not served anything but a very low quality sandwich, on a 5 hour flight. Uncomfortable, no entertainment, very boring.
An hour and a half late, which forced me to miss my connection to next flight.
Cons: "With the coronavirus breakout it was better if they pass disinfectant wipes especially before meals"
Pros: "There was nothing really special or to write home about on this particular Lufthansa flight: it got us there safely and ahead of schedule, albeit, uncomfortably (seats were extremely thin and uncomfortable) and the pitch/distance between seat rows was extremely short & cramped.."
Cons: "Seats could have been more comfortable; they were extremely thin and uncomfortable--and airline could give more legroom/pitch between seats."
Pros: "I didn't like it at all, My luggage bag was wetting after I opened it my clothes smell so bad"
Pros: "Boarding and service"
Cons: "Seat is too hard for this long flight. Bigger pillow would help."
Pros: "nice crew"
Cons: "old planes with bad seats and no chargers or entertainment"
Cons: "Lufthansa is not a pioneer flying company as you think, everything comes from Germany is low quality especially service!!!"
Pros: "nothing was good"
Cons: "Very rude and I think they are a group of racists."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and attentive, I really like the food on Lufthansa"
Cons: "The movie selection was limited and dated"
Cons: "Flight from dc to Frankfurt was delayed 4 hours. Flight from Frankfurt to Amman was cancelled and rebooked for the next morning."
Pros: "The crew, the airplane, and the drinks were great."
Cons: "The food was just ok."
Pros: "Food and service were phenomenal, and the seats were very comfortable."
Cons: "Gate agents were joking and laughing during pre-board, and the entire plane attempted to board at once."
Pros: "Friendly service, actual food in economy class, just a small delay, overall a very smooth trip."
Cons: "As above, I couldn't check in online and thus couldn't choose my seat beforehand."
Pros: "The crew were very considerate. Also they have the best baby beds we have seen so far"
Cons: "The entertainment system was glitchy."
Pros: "The people who work for Lufthansa are the nicest i’ve met, on par with Turkish airlines. The times for boarding and departure were respected, the flight was short but pleasant."
Cons: "The long lines. After check in and security, boarding could have involved less of a standing and waiting, with a bit of ahead communication that could be attained. For instance indicate the order of boarding, time until boarding, and place where the passengers from rows 50-70 should form ia line..."
Pros: "Lounge was very clean"
Cons: "In a 10 hours flight Frankfurt to Atlanta only one main meal. Service was rushed job. My seat wasn’t working and Tv remote didn’t work."
Cons: "The last rows are too near from the toilets or perhaps they weren’t clean when we left Washington"
Cons: "Everything was good except that I thought I booked a flight with the first checked item free which turned out not to be the case. If I had factored in paying for suitcases I would have booked something else."
Pros: "We only had carryons and they took the. From us before boarding the plane."
Cons: "They should tell people that there is delay and that they will take their carry one"
Cons: "My seat did not recline, the seatback was dirty, the seats were very thin, and I could feel every movement from the person behind me. There was no in-flight entertainment, no USB ports or outlets."
Pros: "Went smoothly and without delays"
Cons: "Food was horrible. The buns and croissant were cold and not fresh"
Pros: "Seat was good"
Cons: "Crew was rude"
Pros: "Everything was on time; boarding was very fast and smooth; flight attendance very friendly and resolute. I have food 4 stars because I didn't try it."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "when seats recline in economy you can barely get in and out of a seat"
Pros: "The boarding process is very efficient."
Cons: "Lufthansa’s people are mostly good. But there are some obvious opportunities for people to be more friendly. Also, LH like many others continues to serve cold rolls and cold butter on international flights. KLM warms the rolls! It’s the one small touch that would make Lufthansa’s meal service so much nicer."
Pros: "We had a problem in Germany. My daughter left her passport on the plane. Everyone was very helpful and found it. And got it back to us."
Cons: "The flight boarded late, and very slowly, and took off late as a consequence. Thus, landing late. The inflight entertainment is only accessible with aps that you need to download before you get on the plane, when, of course, you don't know you need them. A remarkably illogical process."
Pros: "The big deal for me was that I was upgraded (at no cost) to Premium Economy class. I enjoyed the extra leg room and the ability to lie back (further than in regular economy class). The free drinks were also a plus."
Cons: "The only thing I can remark upon is that because someone in front of you can lie back so far, it becomes difficult for the person sitting in the window seat to leave his or her seat without disturbing the person in front of him or her."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and informative."
Cons: "Boarding process was the worst I've seen. Seats were too small and no space compared to other flights I've flown on similar routes (British Airways London-Amman & Paris-Amman). No tv's, entertainment system. You could download their system but need to buy wifi to access it. Will try to avoid Lufthansa's short haul flights in the future."
Pros: "bad service"
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "I had to endure 10 hours sitting next to an obese passenger, who was to big to fit into his seat and had to rest his shoulder and elbow over my seat. The crew couldn't do much and so I had to shift myself sideways for the entire journey in order to make space for this obese passenger to rest his arm into and over my seat."
Cons: "They had overbooked the flight and asked to reroute me. I asked if I would still be able to get to my destination at the same time and to make sure I would have a window seat. Everything from the moment I said yes was a terrible. They rebooked me twice on two different routes when I was in the air. Said a steward would meet me (never happened) instead I was running to catch flights on different airlines in two different airports. The entire situation was disgusting. The running was with all of my luggage. Because of the rebooking I was in the last row of 75 rows on a plane with an additional connection. Every flight had delays creating more chaos for the next flight. The only helpful airline in the bunch was Delta."
Pros: "Crew friendly, good food"
Cons: "Cramped seating, can't select seat until checkin without paying (only airline we were unable to select seat)"
Pros: "Good entertainment selection"
Pros: "Great airline with friendly crew, good food and entertainment."
Cons: "I couldn't use the entertainment pack because I didn't have it downloaded on my iPad. I was told to download it when we boarded onto the plain. But at that point i couldn't access wifi. The 7-hours flight could have been more memorable if I could access the entertainment pack."
Cons: "The meal was served rather slowly. I think there ius a place for improvement there."
Pros: "Food was excellent and the stewards were great"
Cons: "An 8 hour flight!"
Pros: "SAS and BA can do better"
Pros: "Excellent Flight"
Pros: "Onboard real meal and multi-lingual crew very impressive"
Pros: "Still loads of leg room in economy which is great for a tall person like myself."
Cons: "The food, dinner and breakfast from Johannesburg to Frankfurt was not very nice and not the usual good standard."
Cons: "The seat in front of mine was reclined in the already cramped space provided, twice as far back as any other seat I could see. Please look into the recline on that seat for future passengers. The crew hit my seat, repeatedly with their carts and did not remember to offer drinks to us as they pushed it by. The airlines should consider removing that seat as an option to passengers if there is not ample room for the flight crew to maneuver around it. It made for an unpleasant experience overall."
