Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was very helpful"
Cons: "No gate for departure or arrival. No business class longe in Cape Town."

Pros: "So welcoming and so caring"
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."

I was not ok with this so I pushed the issue and they put me on the flight leaving 6hrs later. :-((((("

We were scheduled to start boarding at a certain time and we didn’t actually board until 45 minutes later. When we asked the attendants when we would begin boarding and did they have any instructions they were extremely rude, laughing with one another and taking selfies. When we we asked for the third time they brushed us off with a time frame. It was extremely disappointing."
Cons: "I was unable to get my food preference on line days before my trip. It kept telling me to try again. Fortunately the staff was very helpful when I got on board and were able to accommodate me. I hope not to have that same problem on my return flights"

Pros: "The crew on my side of the cabin was very good."

Pros: "Good service, good entertainment options, modern aircraft"
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: "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: "Absolutely friendly Professional"
Cons: "Food on the menu was not available. Some of us did not get lunch and were being offered bread. Some flight attendants were impatient with pax and unwilling to help especially with regards to Wifi on board , others were impolite"

Cons: "legroom could always be better for me......but this was similar to most other airlines"
Pros: "The crew was nice, and there was sufficient overhead space for my bag."
Cons: "I've flown hundreds of times, and this was the most most unpleasant flight I've ever taken. My seat didn't recline, the entertainment console was not working properly, and I had almost no legroom due to the design of the seat. The temperature was unbearably hot. And I didn't get my special meal."
Pros: "The seat was not up to the usual Emirates business class standard. The lights were never completely dimmed."

Pros: "Good service by Emirates"
Pros: "The travel kits are much nicer now, appreciated the mattress"
Cons: "The boarding process in ORT was a horrible fail. they didn't announce the boarding of first/business and by the time I arrived at my seat there was almost no overhead room left because people from economy put there bags in the business area. The bathroom was definitely not cleaned enough, I went twice where the floor was soaked, the seat was wet and the sink full of toothpaste. I understand that every passenger should be responsible enough to clean up after themselves, but it was not an enjoyable experience. The crew was friendly enough, but it didnt feel like the personalized service experience that is usually the case (where they introduce themselves, explain the do not disturb sticker etc). Also I think there was something wrong with my seat because it didnt "lay flat" all the way."
Pros: "Upgrade to Business class"
Pros: "I love the positive and can-do attitude of your crew"
Cons: "A 4 year old banging on the back of my seat"
Pros: "A380 flight was very comfortable, with adequate leg room. A great feature for long haul flights. Good food and a very good entertainment system"

Cons: "Did not happen. Flight was purchased fraudulently and fortunately was caught by Emirates and Amex. Please REMOVE all my contact information from your website"
Pros: "excellent staff and friendly flight attendant."
Cons: "i wish next time the flight will includes a hotel for the over night stay. I had to sleep on the seats at the airport."

Cons: "The food was average"
Pros: "Good service"
Pros: "We will highly recommend to use this airline. We will try again to flight to any city that we know they will have connections . Is worth it to plan to stay a few days in Dubai. Is a great city , unique, different."
Pros: "Flight was quiet and very well organized"
Cons: "I normally choose vegetarian on all my flights, but emirates only has a strictly vegetarian option. Which means vegan - food was not good at all. Sometimes too spicy to even try to eat. I asked to replace my meal on occasion and took the continental breakfast which was great."
Pros: "the food was wonderful, the economy seats were comfy, and the service was superb. I really liked being able to watch movies and listen to music w/o a charge."
Pros: "A380 is spacious"
Cons: "my tablet was not flat"
Pros: "The great content in the entertainment system and the wifi. Bed was comfortable and the service was fantastic. I also really enjoyed the bar in the upper deck. The A380 is a wonderful machine!"
Pros: "I say that everything was good but overall "excellent" because it is hard to fly for hours upon hours and say that it was excellent. All considered, it was good while Emirates (compared to other carriers) is excellent. These huge airplanes are amazing!"
Cons: "Flying for hours upon hours but nobody can do anything about that. Africa has a routine, including this flight, of filling the cabin full of chemicals - for insects? Prepare to cover your head and face!"
Pros: "The comfortable seats, the entertainment system, the food, the attention given by the flight attendants. A great airline!"
Cons: "The length of the flight, but that's unavoidable."

Pros: "All was great ! Hope i'll be able to try the business class one day !"
Pros: "It was just ok overall."
Cons: "The first flight was late by over an hour and nobody could tell us why. They also serve food once and you don't get a snack or anything--you don't even see the attendants--for another 10 hours. Then they serve breakfast close to an hour before landing. The crew is constantly telling you to sit as if you weren't allowed to use the toilet at all when the seatbelt sign is on--and it's on the whole time. So you have to be asking permission to use the toilet when you are right next to the toilet door and about to go in because they don't allow you to use it. That's not healthy for someone to hold it."
Pros: "I will only fly Emirates when available to my destination from now on."
Pros: "I liked the boarding and most the crew was excellent"
Cons: "I specified ovo Lacto vegetarian because I eat cheese and diary. I got a stale and very small bread role with strawberry jam, wilted fruit and margarine for the breakfast meal. The non vegetarians got a full plate of croissant, cheese, fruit and jams. When I asked for butter I got no response. I asked three times before I could get some butter as I do not eat margarine. Lunch was wilted and slimy lettuce and tired fruit for dessert. The main meal itself was delicious but I was hungry the whole flight due to the small helping.. Another small but slightly fresher role and margarine again. Next to the non vegetarian meal there was less than half the food. It was very disappointing."
Pros: "plain was big and clean entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "they lost 2 pieces of my luggage one of them was a wheelchair and there was a delay in takeoff"
Cons: "Huge drop in the quality of the staff compare to the previous flight 4 hours earlier. A lot of staff and maybe 2 of them seemed to be concerned by their job. Most of them spent most of the time eating, drinking and talking between them. They probably spent a better flight than us. For a 7 hours flight they offered us just once to have a drink. Their office was completely messy. Nobody really care about their job. They all seemed to be in training period."
Pros: "Movies and internet"
Cons: "Took too long for food service. We were in middle two seats and my partner was feed and finished before I even got my food. They should go down each side at same time."
Cons: "The crew was not cooperative and the AC was hot especially in the first 3 hours"
Pros: "Crew attitude and helpfulness. Food and beverage."
Cons: "Boarding procedures. Inadequate bathrooms for passenger numbers. Seat width. No economy plus seating."
Pros: "The wrap-around head rests help with sleeping. The good size blanket was comfortable and kept me warm. I really liked the bigger entertainment screen and excellent choice of movies and TV programs. I've never had 'Homes International' and 'Don't tell the Bride' on any flights, which are favorites of mine and are very popular.. I fly on 16 flights/year domestic and international. The flight attendants were very pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "It was a bit too cold. I was in row 50 on the aisle. I am vegetarian so was pleasantly surprised with the fish curry being on the menu, but couldn't see or taste the fish. A bit disappointing."
Pros: "Both flights were amazing the service in both were excellent including crews too"
Cons: "Is from Jhb to Dubai were not Cartered for our foot socks had to were shoes to keep warm regards the long flight, and cover our eyes too ,but every thing was the best regards that only"

Cons: "My luggage is lost"
Pros: "Good AC - very important, calm and nice atmosphere. Very friendly staff."

Pros: "Officers in the airport are rude and offensive, racial discrimination."
Cons: "Change their employees, arrogant, not professional"
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "Both the flight crew and the flight attendants were great. It was the smoothest landing I have had it quite dome time"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "No WiFi on a 12 hour flight, but we could all see the full signal WiFi for the crew, aptly named. LXCrew. Awful to see them using WiFi when we are unable."
Cons: "Check in was annoying in Paris as we had to go to ticket counter, and then go to a different counter to pay for luggage. Annoyed in the first place to have to pay for 2 checked bags on international flight, but to have to go into three separate lines in order to do so was pouring salt into a wound."
Cons: "Seats and leg space were uncomfortable, staff could have been friendlier and more presentable (cleaner appearance)"
Pros: "On time! Courteous. Free meal! Even on flight less than 2 hours!"
Cons: "All good!"
Pros: "Attendants were very pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "The plane was extremely cramped as the seats reclined so far back that it rested on my knees. It was extremely difficult to keep my seat back up which created an uncomfortable angle for my back on a 9 hour flight. The cabin was extremely warm and there was little airflow. The airline also lost our luggage"
Pros: "The food was amazing, the in-flight entertainment was amazing, and the flight attendants were amazingly kind and beautiful. :) Swiss Air has set the standard on airline food, serving Swiss Chocolate and Gruyere cheese on the flight! It was the best!"
Cons: "My only concern was that there were times when I felt a little too warm. The newer Boeing 777 doesn't have passenger controlled A/C."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "SAME AS ABOVE"
Pros: "Friendly and professional crew. Plane was clean"
Cons: "Tight space in economy class(to be expected)"
Pros: "Excellent airline. The flights are always on time and the email notifications make it easy to print out boarding passes and go right to the gate."
Cons: "The seating and leg room is quite cramped"
Pros: "Overall everything was great"
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: "Good flight with Swiss friendliness. They even passed out food (sandwich) during this very short flight."
Cons: "Nothing, really!"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Paying for WiFi."
Pros: "Overall excellent. Full professional and caring staff and company."
Cons: "Not very much space for such a long flight."
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 plane was very clean the seats were neat and everyone was very friendly."
Pros: "Crew was professional and attentive. 55 minute flight so food was ice cream, beverages, and a piece of Swiss chocolate. Plane's entertainment system in my section did not work. I had to check my carry-on!"
Cons: "All of the above with the exception of crew & food comment."
Pros: "There was a half hour delay due to some no-show passengers. The flight was delayed while their bags were removed. The problem was explained well. The flight crew seemed to made up for much of the delay by flying faster or more directly so the total flight time did not increase by 30 minutes. Fortunately this was our final flight segment so the delay was not a problem."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful."
Pros: "The crew was amazing, also the service given since it was a long flight."
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: "We liked the chocolates, the little things matter. We liked the timing of the flight."
Cons: "The seats were old and uncomfortable and the arm rests did not go all the way up."
Pros: "I was placed at the very last seat because of a mix-up of tickets, then had to change twice because some people didn't like their seats. Sitting next to your spouse is logical, but best to provide the ability to select seating ahead of time."
Cons: "Landing. Very rough"
Pros: "I had no idea i would be charged for just one check in bag!"
Cons: "I had no idea i would be charged for checked in bag! Scam!"
Pros: "Croissants and chocolate on an early morning flight"
Pros: "The food was good and I enjoyed the Swiss chocolates."

Cons: "Notithing to dislike comes to mind."
Pros: "Easy and quick"
Pros: "Cabin Service was excellent."
Cons: "OMG the seats are so close together it's very uncomfortable in coach. If the person in front leans back forget it. Not enough room for average sized person. Forget about it if you're a big person."
Pros: "Good staff, food, service"
Cons: "No leg room for us tall people!"
Cons: "At the Istanbul airport an item was taken from me for no reason. No regulation was shown for that item to be taken. I wasn’t comfortable with the way I was treated at the airport. The flight was very good"
Cons: "Food was very poor. They gave us same food every time in all flights. Sandwich was not good. There was no tea, coffee or cold drink. Not even fruit or any chocolates. Food made all of us very upset."
Cons: "New Istanbul airport requires kilometres to walk and then take a super crowded bus. Insane"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Food was really good, staff was helpful and friendly and there was more legroom that I've often experienced. Also - flight was NOT packed - there was actually an empty mid-row seat!"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time, crew were friendly and efficient, toilets were kept clean the entire flight, seat in economy had enough leg room and recline to sleep"
Cons: "In-flight entertainment films were a bit limited"
Pros: "Flight arrived on time."
Cons: "Boarding was unnecessarily chaotic."
Pros: "Good gluten free bread on Istanbul to Malta leg. Blankets are good as is amenity pack which has all but diasappeared on BA. Good choice of films"
Cons: "Foot rest in economy, gluten free meal is poor (except bread)."
Cons: "The online check in wasn’t possible so I wasn’t able to choose my seat."
Pros: "Seats and bathrooms were big"
Cons: "Service was extremely slow. I kept having to ask for more water all the time. Flight attendants were nice, but not well trained. Food quality was pretty poor, especially for international business class"
Pros: "Large screens, reusable dishes + silverware"
Cons: "Plane was old, felt more squished and the seats did not decline. Also very note."
Pros: "Likes: The staff were prompt and friendly. The food was more varied and imaginative than on other airlines. Also, the fact that you get a refund, without any hassle, if you need to change your travel plans, makes this airline unique."
Cons: "Suggestions: A few more centimetres of space between the rows of seats would work wonders. A piece of fruit (apple or tangerine) would add to the enjoyment of the food. A wider range and variety of movies would increase the quality of the entertainment."
Cons: "overall good experience"
Cons: "The flight to Lviv was cancelled after 3 hours delay. All happens in life. But the only option Turkish airlines were offering is to fly the next day. I was flying to the funeral and this was not working for me (especially this was their second flight to Lviv cancelled - 2 in a row). The transfer desk didn't inform that there were two other flights going the same day of other airlines. When i approached to help me to go with a different airline the personal was very rude saying they will not help transferring the luggage and that they can't unload the luggage sooner than 3 hours after you go out of the security and passport control. When i asked to book to a different destination in Ukraine. It took 50 min at the desk to do it. Simply because 4 people at the desk were laughing and joking and nobody was concerned about the queue of over 40 people staying. After 30 min it turned out they've lost my boarding pass and it took 15 min to find it as one of the transfer guys managers simply took it to a different room... At the end when they found it it took only 5 min to do the work. I would appreciate more information from the desk about available flights and more support to manage the situation. I'm happy that people at the transfer desk are so joyful and happy it obviously helps to deal with the stressed passengers whose flight was cancel."
Cons: "It was a struggle to get our hotel from the turkish hotel desk crew. We were travelling from Cape Town to Toronto with a little baby and had a layover of approx 10 hours at Istanbul. They claimed that our layover was 9 hr 40 mins (and not 10 hours) and I had to argue before we finally got a transit hotel. Their customer service is poor."
Pros: "Excellent respect of timing : check in , take off and landing and delivery of luggage. Crew professional and quicly available Connecting flight was possible thanks to respect of time. I have tried number of companies I can tell Turkish airline is committed to time and staff are well organised and professional."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable in this kind of plane. As we were doing a connecting flight we were also tired."
Pros: "They allowed me to change my flight for free because I could not get a visa to Turkey. Thanks!"
Pros: "they treat you as person and help with every thing. the food"
Pros: "the crow"
Pros: "Extras provided - eye mark, socks etc"
Cons: "My seat was unable to recline. My husband and I were moved to a middle aisle (although we really didn't want to share) only to find that the foot rest at my foot rest was also faulty. It was an uncomfortable flight"
Cons: "everything planes were gross and not cleaned in between flights stewardesses were rude and unhelpful food gross passengers were treated like cattle most of the announcements were not even made in english"
Pros: "I landed SAW airport with another operator. Turkish airlines should have simply waited for me as my reservation with them starts in SAW airport. My previous operator sent my luggage to SAW as final destination, which means i have to cross passport control, collect my luggage and start the check-in process; given the time window between the flights, that was simply impossible. TURKISH AIRLINE's ground staff - transit team of SAW airport - Made it happen! I was requested just to wait, then they confirmed transferring the luggage and gave me respective tags! landed CDG - Paris to find my bag safe and sound :)"
Pros: "Went smoothly!"

Pros: "Food is excellent."
Pros: "Food was pretty good."
Cons: "Crew was disorganized. Half the plane didn't get the bread that was supposed to be on the breakfast menu. Service was slow and not enough crew. Also had to wait 30 minutes to use the bathroom because the crew told me I couldn't go into the one I was already in line for and the other one was being cleaned. Seats were more cramped than most airlines (and I'm short)."
Cons: "Sits are uncomfortable and very tight compare to other delta for example also the food quality is poor, the quality and ingredients are cheap."
Pros: "Service, food, entertainment is off the charts!"
Cons: "Seat comfort and legroom in Economy is below standards for even a domestic flight. Flew for over 21 hours on two concurrent flights and I was almost insane. Last leg was on Jet Blue and I felt like I was in First Class with their leg room and seats."
Pros: "I always enjoy flying with Turkish airlines it is a breeze from check in all the way destination from food to entertainment it all runs so smooth I will fly with u any day so far that is the best"
Pros: "see above"
Pros: "The crew is super. The food is good and the entertainment system is almost perfect (free WiFi will make it the best ever)"
Cons: "legs space, legs space and legs space. I will hesitate to pick up turkish only because of that. in long flights there are a lot of satisfaction factors but this is the most important one for me. if I have to get up every 20 min to stretch, it is not working."
Pros: "Crew works very hard to provide good service."
Cons: "Once again, there was a bathroom out of order.... this puts too much use on the others and it showed. Late start again, too."
Pros: "Entertainment center was great, also food was very good."
Cons: "In a 12 hour flight, it would be good to have a small snack between the 2 meals. The crew should improve their English level, specially when flying on a flight to the US."
Pros: "good food, offer different drinks, good service and polite, The take off and landing were so smooth."
Cons: "all movies offer subtitles, can't turn off which some people might feel disturbing"
Cons: "Seating too narrow"
Pros: "They treat economy like you're in first class. They literally give you a menu of food. The entertainment is extensive and free. It's also likely your flight will be less than half full. Tons of empty seats to lay down and sleep."
Cons: "Boarding was behind and slow and very crowded in be area."
Pros: "Boarding was well-organised in Ankara despite the incidents and the closure of the airport the previous day."
Cons: "All was well."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Had to wait 1 week for the money to be unblocked which affected my vacation"
Pros: "Your airline deserves the awards it has won this year! Please come to the US and teach them how to run an airline."
Cons: "They left my bagage in Estambul"
Pros: "no individual tv screens. only 1 container of orange juice. BUT the stewards was really lovely when I told her I was allergic and made me a plate of fruit."
Pros: "Comfort, good quality meal, on time"
Cons: "WOULD NOT TAKE TURKISH AIRLINES AGAIN IF MY LIFE DEPENDED ON IT. I took a flight from JFK to Tel Aviv, with a a layover in Istanbul. Turkish delayed my first flight by 2 hours, which caused me to miss my layover, and the next flight from Istanbul to Tel Aviv was not until the next day. They made me pay for a visa to get into Istanbul, took me to a hotel about 30 minutes from the airport, and then did not serve me any food for dinner. The Istanbul airport was a mess, the flight attendants and everyone working for the airline was EXTREMELY UNHELPFUL. Then on the return flight, they changed the time of my flight at the last minute, which caused me to almost miss it. On top of that, they lost my baggage and took a week to get it back. DO NOT EVER FLY TURKISH, YOU WILL REGRET IT."
Cons: "My entertainment system did not work and the crew did not do anything to try to fix it"
Pros: "The fares were cheap and there was no mistaking we were in economy class: the seats were relatively uncomfortable, and the cabin seemed a bit out-of-date. BUT: for being economy class, legroom seemed above average. The food service was amazing, and cabin crew was incredibly attentive and friendly. I will absolutely look to fly Turkish Air in the future!"
Cons: "The worst part of the trip: other passengers. Some of them were pretty pushy and aggressive, while others had somewhat dubious standards of personal hygiene."
Pros: "A three hour flight and they gave us a very nice meal and beverage selection. Never happen in the U.S. unless you are flying first class, and even then they wouldn't exceed Turkish Airlines. When did you last have metal eating utensils with your meal..... if you even got a meal. Plus multi channel seat back entertainment on a three hour flight. I wish the U.S. would open domestic markets to foreign carriers."
Cons: "Really tight seats. Almost impossible to eat your meal."
Cons: "The entertainment did not work good the entire flight"
Cons: "Beef main course overcooked and dry."
Pros: "Planes were comfortable and well maintained."
Cons: "We were delayed thirty minutes due to slow service. Zero entertainment and only a brownie for a snack"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, adequate legroom; clean aircraft, polite and professional crew."
Cons: "Super crowded gate -- but that's more the CDG problem than Norwegian's one."
Pros: "The crew on-board was nicer this time"
Cons: "Had wait in line for more than 1.5 hours to check in (no self-serve kiosk) and then conform to the 10kg carry-on (both backpack and suitcase) rule which didn't happen on the first flight. The staff are rude and unhelpful and the whole process of dealing with Norwegian is confusing."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "I’d honestly pay more for childless flights"
Cons: "Improving customer service during delay but overall good"
Pros: "Brand new very nice/comfortable planes. Great routes and flight departure/arrive times. Really great value."
Cons: "They’re a budget airline so they nickel and dime you for food and beverage. They are not a member of “sky team” so if they have a flight delay or cancellation they will not book you on another airline."
Pros: "Service and the crewe was very kind"
Cons: "There was no entertainment a lite. Crowded the seat but I understand as it was a smalll airplane."
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."
Cons: "Food could be improved."
Pros: "Quick, efficient, relaxing."
Pros: "Staff was great."
Cons: "I missed a hot moist towel to refresh my face before I got off of the plane after an 8-hour flight."
Pros: "Crew were professional and friendly"
Cons: "Small seats"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. There was a terrible backlog in Security at Frankfurt Airport. This is not Lufthansa's fault but considering how important Frankfurt is, you would think the airlines would say something. The flight was late. There were no proper queues for boarding. Everone was mixed up, business, gold card, economy, and only one person doing the chekcing of boarding passes. It was not the best process."
Cons: "Our flight was 9 hours late. We were given no notice of this until we arrived at the gate. it took an hour if holding before we could reach customer service. Customer service at our arrival gate was extremely slow. Baggage claim closed before my daughter’s luggage was released and it was lost until the next day. Our connecting flight was booked incorrectly do we had to spend the night in Frankfurt. Our 13 hour flight took 29 hours. The food was awful."
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours late in departing from Frankfurt."
Pros: "The seats are comfortable and the plane was clean and well-presented."
Cons: "The flight left with a slight delay. As I boarded, I was issued a new seat in the middle, as opposed to the window seat I had selected. There was zero explanation for this change. When I approached the flight attendants about it, with a smile on my end, I was offered the equivalent of a shrug. As I gave up, I was also informed there was no more room in the overhead bins, so not only did I end up sitting in the middle (which I loathe), but also with my carry-on under my feet. I’ve always been a fan of Lufthansa, but I’m a little disappointed this time around."
Pros: "Professional, efficient, full, nice sandwich and coffee."
Cons: "You cancelled. Cost me lost lodging, missed connecting flights and a day of my trip."
Cons: "Beware. Frankfort to Paris A321 Business class is coach with an empty middle seat. Uncomfortable even for a short flight. Very disappointing following excellentvbusiness class on first leg of trip Orlando-Frankfort"
Pros: "Enough space for my legs, cabin crew okay"
Cons: "No entertainment"
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."
Pros: "Crew greeted every passenger with a smile on entry and exit! So nice. Delicious, large cookie for a short flight."
Cons: "Boarding was poor. Did not board back of aircraft first like Lufthansa does on other flights. Felt sardined almost because of a full flight"
Pros: "Although clearly an older plane, it was clean. Gate personnel re-assigned me to a seat in a row with no-one in it."
Cons: "The gate of departure moved twice before departure. The last change was to a completely different building. Apparently the equipment was changed and I did not learn that I would need a seat re-assignment until I scanned my boarding pass during boarding. (However, the gate agent was quick to accommodate)."
Pros: "One of flight attendants lent me her phone charger to charge my phone which absolutely saved and they were just generally very pleasant and easy to interact with."
Pros: "All good - flight, service all great!!!"
Pros: "Comfortable seats; food was adequate"
Cons: "Seats seem a bit close to one another, with little knee room"
Cons: "There were no Lufthansa representatives in Frankfurt airport upon my arrival. Also my connecting flight wasn't showing on electronic board. I had to get WiFi connection in order to get any info. I was very unhappy about it ."
Pros: "It was quick and smooth. Snack provided. Baggage arrived quickly."
Cons: "they were out of ginger ale again! every flight they just gave out the last ginger ale...so bring more of those tiny little cans!"
Pros: "The crew was nice and professional."
Cons: "We waited over an hour for two people to board the plane. After we waited, the couple didn't make it past security; so, we had to wait another 20 minutes for the company to take their luggage off of the plane. I was late checking into my hotel, which was in the process of being canceled."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic."
Pros: "Punctual, efficient, Lufthansa never fail to deliver."
Pros: "Title says it all Short flight"
Cons: "Lufthansa does not honor frequent flyer statuses of any of their alliance partners in regards to seat upgrades. Being 6'4", the ability to upgrade to economy plus/premium is important on long-haul flights. Everything else about Lufthansa is excellent, but I will not book with Lufthansa for long flights anymore because of this. I'll stick with United from now on."
Pros: "Standard short flight."
Cons: "I have no idea why they would book this flight for a connection to Chicago. They only gave me an hour window for connecting and with the plane delayed 30 minutes I had to rush through and skip everyone in like at passport check and made it just as the were boarding my connection."
Pros: "Timely departure."
Cons: "Fruit and a muffin is not enough for breakfast."
Pros: "- crew was nice - overall flight was smooth"
Cons: "- not too unexpectedly, food was small - bring something warm to wear, as at some point temps can be real cold... - wish the boarding process was slightly more logical and have people with seats in the back of the plane go first"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and pleasant crew"
Cons: "It was a short flight so no food was given out."
Pros: "Unfortunately expectations on flights are so low that I am hesitant to say much. It got us there in one piece and I guess that is considered nice these days."
Cons: "I don't normally expect much of airplane food but this was a very low end food for an overseas 8 hour flight."
Pros: "Flight was 10 minutes late departing but a short flight time led to us arriving in CDG on time."
Cons: "Baggage delivery to carousel 6 at CDG took over 40 minutes with delivery coming in small batches......the flight time was shorter!"
Pros: "The wide selection of content to watch, food was good."
Cons: "45 minute flight delay due to a discrepancy with the engine."
Cons: "From the boarding to the landing this crew could not have been more rude. Flashlights in the eye when trying to sleep, rude comments, rude attitude. They are clearly not here to make our flight easier."
Cons: "The food was not goot at all."
Pros: "Great service and entertainment. Pretty comfortable, too."
Cons: "food was so so."
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and several announcements made the flight easy"
Cons: "We were late !"
Pros: "The crew on this flight was very nice."
