Pros: "The food was very nice. The IFE was very nice as well. The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The was a lot of profanity used by the attendants that was not necessary. Secondly I reserved a front row seat in online check in, but it did not allow put mean in that seat. Which if they were full would be understandable, but every single one was empty."
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"
Pros: "generally good overall for a 14 hour long flight"
Cons: "legroom could always be better for me......but this was similar to most other airlines"
Pros: "Crew, interior, seats"
Cons: "Food was average. Service could be better. For example, my wife and I never got our food at the same time or close enough. We had to ask for food or drinks. They should regularly ask if we need something. Empty water bottles (up to 3) were sitting on my table for hours till we landed."
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: "crew was good but seat was too narrow, and there are too many little kids near us."
Cons: "do limit the number of passengers with little children and don't put senior citizens near them."
Pros: "Friendly crew, extra legroom, great entertainment options."
Pros: "General flight was good. Loved the food."
Cons: "Beeing more than an hour delayed"
Pros: "The food and service was great."

Pros: "Crew and entertainment"
Cons: "Food and legroom"
Pros: "Emirates really knows how to treat customers"
Cons: "Flight was long"
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: "as usual the ICE system keeps you entertained"
Cons: "we were greeted by a swarm of mosquitoes and then the flight attendants sprayed bug spray multiple times which was terrible given it is an enclosed space. The mosquitoes never went away so the only reprieve was when we finally exited the plane. Awful."
Pros: "My flight left on time and from the moment I was greeted upon entering the A380 Airbus, I knew I was in for something very special. As prepared for departure, blankets and pillows were distributed amongst the passengers. Once in flight, dinner and in the morning, breakfast. And, throughout the night, the flight attendants attended to passenger requests for beverages and snacks. The plane was clean and, maybe I need to compliment my fellow passengers also, for the washrooms were clean and well maintained. We arrived on time and the trip seemed rather short with the entertainment of movies, news and inflight updates. Thanks again Emerates...you have brought back flying to it's original objective to give service and a safe means of travel. See you soon. Philip Dorn"
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: "Good was served late, in both legs. Flight departs at 7 pm but diiner was served after 10 (midnight Dubai time) Which meant our sleep was disturbed and when breakfast was served we had a full stomach."
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: "Legroom and how attentive and pleasant the fight crew was."
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: "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: "Space and the fact that everything worked. Food was excellant."
Cons: "I always like Emirates."

Pros: "Food and Entertainment beat Delta hands down."
Cons: "Unfortunately packed into a row with a lot of big guys"
Cons: "We had a long layover in Dubai and decided to go out to explore the city. When we went to go back with the same carry ons that we had been using our entire trip (with three different flights with them), They made us check in our hand luggage because it was over 7kg. When we went to talk to the person at the gate about it, he was very condescending and rude and not helpful at all. They were also not nice on the plane. Never flying again."
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: "The good was good and the staff treated us with respect."
Cons: "When I reached at Dubai l could not get a seat to come to Boston as they had overbooked. But it was a blessing for me as I was given a free round trip ticket from Boston to Kenya to use within one year and for that I thank you."
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."
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: "I just would like to get my baggage- which is been 4 days since my arrival and they can’t even tell me where they are at!!!...."
Cons: "Food could be better"
Pros: "Everyone was friendly, pleasant and very helpful. Upon arrival in Delhi our suitcase handle was broken."
Cons: "I asked the Chinese flight attendant in economy to please ask the man in front of me to put his seat up since the captain and purser had already asked us to do so in three languages The man in front of me refused to do so. She said she was going to start at the front of the plane and let him leave his seat back making it difficult to see my tv monitor. I thought that she should’ve said that it was time to put your seat up. It was frustrating that she didn’t support me and the request of the captain. Your seats are very uncomfortable upright when the person in front of you has their seat back."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Friendly crew and professional."
Cons: "I ordered vegan food, no meat , dairy free. On my trip from Boston to Zurich I received vegan food. On my way fro Zurich to Belgrade I was told” sorry we do not have any vegan food, “ Also, I was charged $60 for my check in one bag,. Not expectable."

Media screen and audio did not work, and usb charger kept turning off. Barely able to recharge phone over the span of 10 hour flight! My next neighbor had same problem."

Pros: "The food was quite good and the crew was perfectly friendly. The entertainment choices were useful on such a long flight."

Cons: "I felt like a sardine."
Pros: "choice of movies were very bad"
Pros: "There was water to drink"
Cons: "Plane felt like a 1990 air France flight. Cabin dated. The least amount of room I can remember on a plane. When sitting upright and the person in front reclined, i looked at their head and if I crossed my arms, it would touch the seat in front. Could not pick up pillow that dropped on the floor, could not bend around the seat in front. Very hard to get out to use the toilet. Felt very claustrophobic."

Pros: "Good service"
Pros: "fantastic food test"

Pros: "I liked the food."
Cons: "On the way back from Istanbul to London the plane was old and small, the TV kept shutting down,even the earpiece were not working."
Pros: "almost everything"
Cons: "Old entertainment system with no choice of movies"
Pros: "Every thing was excellent"
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"
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."
Cons: "The flight wasn’t on time it was delayed for 2 hour , and the landing was very scary"
Pros: "great pilots, professional staff."
Cons: "we were given the same pasta for all our meals, the food used to be soo good on turkish air! now they changed to having to pre- order online which we didnt know so got stuck with the pasta!"
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: "The food"
Cons: "Was late"
Pros: "Price price and price"
Cons: "They should serve Asian food for asian flights"
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: "Plane was more comfortable this time. I was able to put seat back a bit to sleep."
Cons: "Food choices were poor. For a long flight, it would be ideal to offer things for people with allergies. As a celiac, I was unable to eat most of what they offered me and there were not a lot of options. This is difficult on such a long flight."
Cons: "There was no personal monitor to watch movies during the flight"
Cons: "In Istanbul, wheel chair facility was not provided. Wheel chair facility was there with itinerary."
Pros: "Nice crew except for...see: 'didn't like' section."
Cons: "First and foremost we were astonished and angered that the cabin crew would not allow any window shades to be open during the day- long flight. That is unhealthy and exacerbates the jet lag phenomena. An airplane is not a hotel and you have eye masks and such readily available for people sleeping. Oh, and I also like to look out the window! For this reason I am looking for another airline to fly for our semi annual trips overseas."
Pros: "The flight staff was very friendly, even to difficult passengers."
Pros: "The staff was courteous and helpful"
Cons: "The air temperature was warm and the food was not good. The choices were not available. I just ate bread and butter."
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: "Food is excellent, staff great."
Cons: "Not nearly enough leg room for an international flight!!"
Pros: "The flight on time"
Cons: "Nothing. A short flight, not much expectation besides on time departure and arrival"
Pros: "The Price!"
Cons: "Would have appreciated different breakfast choices."
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: "Leg rooms are much smaller compare to other airlines."
Cons: "Flight wasn't full but they packed the front of the plane. I finally moved since there was a huge man in the middle seat. First seat I move to, the woman thought she owned the entire row. Guess she bought a business class seat and the flight attendants moved her to her own row. Everyone else who had a row to themselves followed suit. I finally find a seat but it wasn't was attached correctly and was falling off. Was uncomfortable to whole 10hrs."
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!"
Cons: "Terrible food. I saw many others leave the food, only have bread and fruits. The same to me."
Cons: "the entrainment system did not work"
Cons: "The airline has lost my luggage which has costs several hundred dollars worth of replacements and they have not been in contact."
Cons: "Due to a family emergency I was forced to change my flight to a later date and they did a terrible job handling. Would not allow me to change and charged me enormous change fees. I will never fly Turkish airlines again."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2 hrs, no explanation given, the ground staff was no where to be found, finally one person showed up and he was not helpful. No formal announcement was made!"
Pros: "Boarding was fine in Istanbul. Go to toilet before going through security check in the gate."
Cons: "Poor crew service--amazingly slow (my general THY service experience has been great, but in this leg crew did not respond to calls for almost 20-30 minutes). After meals, most people took their own empty trays to return them behind (because the crew had not picked up after 30+ minutes). The meals arrived cold as well. My entertainment set froze after 4 hours in a 13 hours trip, and was not attended to after repeated calls. One conscientious Turkish stewardess was very helpful in the 9th hour (literally), even if the entertainment did not come back on. To top these, I was sandwiched between a teenager on front and teenagers on right, who were loud and generally weird (obviously not the airlines fault). So, it ended up being a mediocre experience overall."
Pros: "The crew. The movies"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating. Lack of ventilation at window seat. Some food mediocre."
Pros: "the boarding was fine, we were on time and the staff was pleasant."
Cons: "the food was ok, they played one movie for everyone to watch and our screen was not the best, small seats with no leg room, filthy greasy window i had to clean to look out of."

Cons: "More leg room would have been nice..."
Pros: "The movie options"
Cons: "Compensation for having waited an hour and a half extra."
Pros: "Pretty much everything"

Cons: "Didn’t make the flight due to delay and late arrival! No help getting seats on a later flight or next morning."
Pros: "When I finally got off the plane"
Cons: "Everything. No instructions, no pens or pencils, ignorant staff. Got to Cancun and waited 2 hours with no directions to just go they immagration. The forms were in Spanish and the staff could not translate. I’ll never fly Delta again."
Pros: "From the pilot...FAs....gate agents....everyone was very pleasant and professional. Plane was clean as well."
Pros: "On time"

Pros: "left on time and arrived on time"
Cons: "no lunch on a flight that departed at 2 pm."
Cons: "Delayed because waited on a stewardess to show up. Wasn’t able to book my seats when we checked in. The last seats on the plane are horrible. Still waiting on the plane to unload. Definitely will rethink ever flying this airline again."
Pros: "Comfort Plus seating was good for the long flight, lots of choices for entertainment."
Cons: "Some crew members were rather cold in their manner, either disinterested or grumpy. Electric outlet didn't work. On screen entertainment touch screen was very difficult to use (unresponsive to touch)."
Pros: "The crew are very friendly, positive and have good sense of humor."
Cons: "The flight got delayed badly"
Pros: "Me atendieron muy bien , tuve un excelente viaje"
Pros: "Every single detail was outstanding"
Cons: "Your company has the worst customer service ever! You ruined our family vacation and just have horrible policies I can’t believe it! Will never purchase anything off your website again! You suck!"
Pros: "Great movies...."
Pros: "One crew member, young dark haired woman, was particularly accommodating. Male attendant was firm and funny."
Cons: "Typical cramped plane, too many planes going out of same gate are simultaneously"
Pros: "Easy boarding, helpful crew, on time, informative pilot"
Cons: "Fewer and fewer choices for beverage and snack"
Pros: "Traveling mid day and on Tuesday.....it’s my new favorite!"
Pros: "Stewardesses were sympathetic but could do nothing."
Cons: "A few flurries out of Philadelphia and flight is delayed 2.5 hrs, we therefore miss our connection and all they wanted us to do was spend 2 days in airport until next flight. Finally reached a compassionate soul at customer service who got creative and routed us to BCN via ATL, Miami and Madrid."
Pros: "Quick flight!"
Cons: "Older plane and seemingly frustrated crew. They had very little patience."
Pros: "We made it it was short 1 hour 11 min"
Cons: "I had a long lay over it was more then 12 hours"
Cons: "Extremely long queue"
Cons: "Took forever to board and get off the plan."
Pros: "The flight was uneventful and although we took off late, we arrived on-time."
Cons: "The rows of seats are so tight that when the big guy in the seat in front of me leaned back (not even putting his seat back) his seat banged into my knees. A combination of cheap seats and too many seats. Made for a very uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "Let’s face it-no one likes a 14 hour flight. But the staff was great, food pretty good, movies flew by and we arrived early and happy and bags at baggage claim by the time we got"
Pros: "Just getting to my destination"
Cons: "Service very poor and seats very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Service was excellent in spite of the terrible weather conditions. Flight attendants were very friendly."
Pros: "The flight was very quick."
Cons: "They didn't serve us water."
Cons: "The flight attendants were unfriendly and borderline rude. I felt like when I asked for anything or was just up stretching my legs that I was bothering them. There was also quite bit of turbulence in the first two hours- I have traveled a lot and I felt like it took the pilots too long to find a smoother altitude."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Seats too close. Food lacks salads. Fruit salad tasteless--fruit not ripe--looks good, but no taste."
Cons: "Jet airways sucks"
Pros: "Kindness and politeness, on time lots of explaining"
Cons: "Beyond seat space all was perfect"
Pros: "I make this trip every month. And this crew is the best I had in a while."
Pros: "The airplane"
Cons: "Poor food"
Cons: "After 600,000 miles of flying, this one was the worst. 5 hours on the tarmac for a 4 hour flight."
Pros: "Drinks were passed out twice while everyone was waiting due to flight delay. There was one flight attendant that was awesome. I had asked for coffee due to migraine. I was stuck in the last row, back of the plane & had seen other people with coffee. The flight attendant told me no, I would have to wait for 3 more hours for coffee at breakfast. A smiling face showed up within minutes & asked if I wanted coffee. She told me that when she hears someone else say "no" that she thinks it should always be "yes". She was the African American flight attendant (wish I would have got her name). She brought me coffee, offered tylenol & checked in on me again later."
Cons: "Food wasn't very good. Most of the service was fair at best, crew, no smiles, looked irritable. Our flight had been delayed about 4-5 hrs so passengers & staff grumpy. Poor selections on the movies. No charging stations in the seat. This plane was very noisy so I was really glad to have noise cancelling headphones. Very expensive to select seats as it was bought through a non-Delta site to get the desired connections."
Pros: "Westjet's employees were very pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "Delta told us we were flying out on a Delta flight, and gave us a Delta flight number. In reality it had placed us on a Westjet flight without telling us, and we had no idea we were to check in with a different airline. And because Delta unilaterally changed our flight time without telling Westjet, we were unable to check in online and were later told that we were booked on the wrong flight by Delta. Delta's communications with us and with Westjet were deplorable."
Pros: "Smooth flight, friendly attendants. We had exit Sears so great legroom."
Cons: "Sears not assigned until boarding."
Pros: "The flight was quite comfortable."
Cons: "I find it hard work doing such long flights these days."
Pros: "The crew were nice enough. However, I thought it was strange that the flight attendant woke up the guy next to me to see if he wanted to eat, which he didn’t."
Cons: "Checking in was bad. We had difficulty with the agent, who said that we needed to wrap our plastic tubs. We have flown other airlines using these same tubs for 15 years. After our minor altercation, the food on the two legs from Dammam and then on to Atlanta was very bad. I am not very picky with food and like just about anything. However, I was unable to eat the food served in 2 out of 3 meals. My time on Frankfurt was also not very pleasant. I will most likely try to avoid Lufthansa in the future."
Pros: "Fabulous Stuart’s."
Cons: "1h of delay .... is inadmissible for the price what we are paying for the tickets..."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and attentive, I really like the food on Lufthansa"
Cons: "The movie selection was limited and dated"
Pros: "More space for the kids!!"
Cons: "More organize during boarding, better food (it was either too hot or not hot enough, quality wasn’t good, snacks horrible) compare to other airlines, not sure if we’ll use Lufthansa again for overseas trips"
Cons: "Just deaiappointed"
Cons: "Food could be improved."
Pros: "I was on exit place so there were a lot of room space. Flight was only 1 hour."
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: "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."
Pros: "All the full service airlines are pretty good in the air. But what sets apart Lufthansa is it's ground staff. On the previous occasion I had left behind my waist bag on the seat containing passports, cash and cards. Their lost and found desk retrieved it quickly, absolutely intact. On the last occasion, my mother in law, who is over 85 was taken care of very well at not only Delhi but especially at the Frankfurt airport. I must truly acknowledge young lady Jessica's efforts, in ensuring that everything was handled very caringly by her personally, for an old lady at the Frankfurt airport."
Pros: "Love the entertainment and meals"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Almost everything"
Pros: "Great business class seats. Plenty of room and comfortable."
Cons: "Need AC outlets and better WIFI"
Pros: "Excellent service. They really brought around the drinks and food and seemed to be there when you were looking for more."
Pros: "I can’t say enough about the Lufthansa staff- we ran to our gate because our connecting flight was late, and we were greeted by a warm and smiling face who said “It’s alright, don’t run, take your time, we’re waiting for you.” Onboard the crew was phenomenal- Every. Single. One. I have always felt as a burden to crew if I asked for extra water or an extra blanket- not on this flight, not with this crew. They came around multiple times per hour during an 8hr and 20min flight, offering various beverages and checking on everyone. I can’t thank them enough for how caring they were to everyone on board. The captain as well was very professional and had a kind spirit when he spoke. Best experience I’ve ever had- (and I travel multiple times per year!)"
Pros: "Very helpful people!"
Pros: "The food was good."
Cons: "The seats were not too comfortable and the video screen was small."
Pros: "cleanliness, timely arrival and departure"
Cons: "poor service - surly crew bad food - havent been served worst food uncomfortable seats bad entertainment, sound distortions, small screens, limited selections and to top it all is the FRANKFURT AIRPORT - one of the worst transit points which makes you walk for miles and miles."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "when seats recline in economy you can barely get in and out of a seat"
Cons: "There was a delay on the takeoff and arrival was taken to another gate and had to take a bus. Not crew or company's fault- but makes traveling a bit slow. Several people had connecting flights..!"
Cons: "The food is not tasty"
Pros: "Nice service, nice staff"
Cons: "The food becoming worse and worse each time.. I think it is better to Lufthansa to reduce price of the ticket and do not serve such kind of burgers.. Or improve the quality of food if they still positioning as the one of the best airlines."
Pros: "Comfortable for a short flight. On time."
Cons: "Had to go through security and passport control a second time made the 1 hour connection stressful"
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."
Cons: "We were late, had to run through the airport just to catch our next flight"
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Nothing. All was good"
Cons: "Not enough water was offered by flight attendants Wasn't offered an after dinner drink One of the flight attendant wasn't very pleasant"
Pros: "Excellent service with pleasant, efficient staff. Special vegetarian diet needs met."
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."
Cons: "Very small narrow seats in business class on this flight."
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: "Courtesy and friendliness of staff."
Cons: "The cheapo headphones"
Pros: "Very friendly crew! Very comfortable seats. Bailey's offered free! I had never been on an Airbus 340 before--stairs down to the bathroom was interesting."
Cons: "Food--but probably no worse than other airlines."
Pros: "Seats are very, very cramped - no room at all in economy."
Pros: "The seats were roomy, the flight staff was attentive and very efficient. The plane was clean and offered many different movies to watch. They even had new releases on those list along with games and music. I truly enjoyed my first experience with this airline!"
Cons: "They offered alternative media for people with dietary restrictions and I didn't know this when I booked. I'm gf and they could have accommodated, had I known."
Pros: "Friendly, professional staff"
Cons: "Personal space too small"
Pros: "Even on such a short flight I got a sandwich. It was a salmon sandwich which I never had on any other flights. They usually serve cheese or ham or chicken in the Middle East. It was nice to have something different and nutritious."
Pros: "Good flight good staff. Captain explained the route which is nice."
Cons: "No negatives"
Pros: "SAS and BA can do better"
Pros: "Excellent Flight"
Pros: "The plane was not too full and sitting in economy plus was quite comfortable on this long flight. The food was good and served often. Lots of drinks were offered with plenty of water available all during the trip. Nice blankets and pillows were on each seat."
Cons: "My only complaint was the quality of the sound and picture for the TV system. Thankfully I had a book on my iPad."
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."
