Cons: "all good."

Pros: "The flight from Johannesburg to Dubai on an Airbus A380 was the best , the return was on the 777ER it's a bit older avoid it if you can, I prefer the a380 it's roomy, more comfortable and modern, the food was good, the cabin crew very helpful and friendly and both flights were on time. I'll be flying only Emirates from now on"
Cons: "Just the coffee was terrible lol,"

Pros: "www.Web.HR"

Pros: "Sorry...pushed a button the it disappeared. Will try again... As always, returning home from an international two week trip is always thrilling but exhausting. The hours of travel seem slow. My half table of Advil PM worked wonders though. Gracious service, always willing to help myself and those seated around me. Clean bathroom facilities. Overall, I'm thrilled to be home safely."
Cons: "I picked slimly through my food. Nothing seemed too appetizing. The entertainment options were a bit difficult to navigate. Choices were a bit limited as well for a long flight."

Pros: "There was good service in the flight"

Pros: "Typical Emirates excellence"

Pros: "we were travelling with kids. They pulled us from the back and put us in the front since our group of 6 had two small kids. They were extremely nice to us in athens."
Cons: "I just wish there was a snack in the middle of the service."

Pros: "E v e r y t h i n g ..... I understand now why they are the number ONE airlines in service. We travel enough to see the BIG difference. Thumbs up. Please don't change !!!!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Friendly staff, great selection of entertainment!"
Cons: "There was nothing to not like"

Pros: "They still catch my attention, and while traveling with them I continue to enjoy this airline."
Cons: "As per my Oslo - Dubai review (read there for more details), they cancelled my flight, put me on a flight a day later, and then left me with the bill and the inconvenience. This was the connector out of Dubai and back to Johannesburg. I've flown with them many times and I've picked up one or two small cut backs they've made like no hot towel when you get onboard, only before your arrival, and the meal seems a little more slimmed down (but still pretty tasty), They used have one or two extras which they've now taken away. Not sure why?"

Cons: "Rude and racist cabin crew!"

Pros: "Space and the fact that everything worked. Food was excellant."
Cons: "I always like Emirates."

Pros: "The crew member was excellent,she went all out to make my journey easy and comfortable.I have sent an email to her superior,please use her as an example.if all attendants can serve and see to passengers like her will be beneficial for emirates"

Pros: "Delay in first flight which caused me a day. But accommodation provided at Dubai is fantastic. Entertainment system not worked in flight and WiFi Audi not worked."

Pros: "Friendly staff awesome planes wonderful experince"
Cons: "Service was a bit slow. Drinks and food took quite sometime to arrive."

Pros: "Very good we appreciate good service and good food"

Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "It was ok"

Pros: "The food was delicious, and I received the special meal I had requested with no problem. Again, great selection of TV shows and movies."
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit put off, just not very friendly. Maybe something had happened that put them all in a bad mood I'm not sure. Despite this they did help people without complaint, but you could tell they didn't want to be there. Again on this flight the TVs were an old model that was difficult to use, you had to push really hard and finagle your finger to get it to read what you were pressing."

Pros: "Entertainment selection and legroom were good Entertainment selection included recent movies in various languages and premium TV shows."
Cons: "Legroom in economy was good; however, seat width wasn't. You rub elbows with your neighbors while eating. Asian vegetarian meals were nauseatingly spicy - not the "hot" spicy type, but the cinnamon/cardamom overuse type. Most crew members gave a cold shoulder to passengers."

Pros: "Customer service, food, the flight in general was good."
Cons: "I lost TV signal a few times and therefore wasn't able to watch the games I was interested in. But I understand this is beyond your control at times but the whole system would benefit from an upgrade. The touch screen sometimes takes a while to respond so making the process a little tedious."

Cons: "Flights are always good but back office staff is always careless not to bother any complaints or never solved any complaints they do not care of customer bcoz they have business thier is no other airline right now but in future may be they loose customer like me"

Pros: "Granted I was tired after being in transit for 24 hours, but this final of 4 long-haul flights was a real bummer compared to the other flights. Boeing 777 packed to 100% capacity."
Cons: "Really cramped and squished compared to other flights. Toilets at DXB were filthy (I searched around for the cleanest, which was still disgusting), with the cleaning attendant standing around in the restroom doing nothing. Duty Free shops really expensive compared to European airports. Meal on board (breakfast) was really terrible (and that taking into account that airline breakfast is always bad), really the worst I've ever had on a plane, even the Croissant was chewy and very dry. Emirates has become a massive sausage machine people-mover. It has loss its finesse and exceptional service."

Pros: "I liked the service, food and the crews behavior"
Cons: "The only thing that I didn't like was I was told in the office that you will get free hotel room unfortunately when I arrived to Dubai they told me that I'm not in the system and you have to pay"

Cons: "My check in luggage was torn. The handle was ripped off from one side. :("

Pros: "The staff were wonderful and efficient. The toilets were clean and the food was much better than my first flight with emirates although the portions were small on the main meal with only four spinach ravioli offered in a tomato sauce."
Cons: "Passengers do not fit on to their seats and overflow into the space you are occupying which is so tiny as it is. There is not enough room to even reach down to pick something up if you drop it. Overhead lockers are full. I think planes either need to be redesigned with sleeping compartments (such as the second class compartments the trains have) for overnight flights or seats need to be slightly larger to make up for the fact most people are larger today."

Cons: "THe Hostess was not attentive and had to ask for things a few times. No goody basket was given although some pax did get it."

Pros: "The crew was incredibly nice and friendly."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Organized and quick boarding process, excellent service overall."

Pros: "Economy seats still comfortable"

Pros: "Plenty of food provided, and crew is very friendly."
Cons: "When boarding at Brisbane Airport to fly back to Singapore, ground staff at the counter called out the boarding passes allocated from back rows to middle rows to start boarding; thereafter the remaining rows were never called out, so passengers like us holding front to middle row seats and following the rules naturally were left behind, at a disadvantage. In the end when not many passengers were left in the Queue, then we joined Q at the back to board."

Pros: "Great crew. I had 3 seats for myself."
Cons: "Selection of music entertainment."

Cons: "My luggage is lost"

Pros: "vegan sweeties for the kids, so nice as my daughter usually has to say no. Also swiss chocolate - so good! Our veggie meals booked hadn't gone through on the system but we were found some they had anyway - wasn't very nice though."

Pros: "The crew was good, not amazing and the seats were adequate, not generous. The food was sppealing."
Cons: "The whole experience was positive."

Cons: "No entertainment throughout"

Pros: "Quick and easy."

Pros: "Cabin crew were efficient"
Cons: "Open check in counters on time as scheduled. They were half hour late at least"

Pros: "The seats aren’t the greatest"
Cons: "Just the seats"

Pros: "full aircraft"

Pros: "Crew was lovely! Friendly and happy. Well organized and responsive."
Cons: "Overseas flight seats were tight going and coming, and being that long a flight you feel you are sitting on top of your neighbors. Air quality descends on a long full flight, it became claustrophobic by the end. There was only an option for vegetarian-vegan, but I am not vegan. I won't do that again. My daughter's bag didn't make to SFO, even though we were early to check in."

Cons: "The crew responsible for boarding did not provide timely information (especially on who boarding order) and "made up" for this lack of communication by yelling and screaming at passengers as if they were cattle."

Cons: "Did NOT know ticket was economy light!!!! I WAS UPSET WE HAD TO PAY BAGGAGE FEE!!!!"

Pros: "Flight was delayed which caused us to change our flight from United to Lufthansa. Like Lufthansa much better."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Had to get a different flight because we would miss the next flight."

Pros: "Steward Very pleasant, helpful and accomodating."
Cons: "No information on the flight about how to proceed with our missed conncetions nor anyone to meet in Zurich at gate with information."

Pros: "Fast boarding and deplaning."
Cons: "Not clear seat bookings cost $35. I was assigned the last row. Extra short width, pitch, couldn't fully recline (A340-300) Terrible food. Super old, tired plane. Crappy in-flight entertainment with non-intuitive controls. Poor air conditioning. I felt like I was stuffed in a cage for 7 hours. Way worse than United domestic."

Pros: "The crew was very attentive and friendly. For the price the seats where comfortable."

Pros: "A very pleasant and efficient experience. The gate personnel were very helpful with a boarding pass snafu. We decided to check a bag, and the automated option saved us a lot of time and was very easy."

Pros: "I had a wonderful experience the whole way through."
Cons: "The TV froze and stopped working for me. Thankfully it was the last thirty minutes of my flight. Mine was the only that appeared to be broken."

Pros: "Chocolate is a nice touch. Snacks (sandwich) was actually good."
Cons: "Seating upholstery needs to be replaced. Faux leather upholstery has cracks. The seat next to mine kept coming off."

Pros: "The food wasn’t bad"
Cons: "Business seats suck"

Pros: "Staff and flight was really great. Everything went smoothly and on schedule. The plane was clean."
Cons: "The seating was almost unbearable. So small and cramped. Arm rest didn’t go all the way up so very hard to cuddle with my seat mate (my daughter). I couldn’t even put my arms by my side without pushing my seat neighbors off. Seat in front of me was in my lap. Hard to get out of seat to use restroom. Way to tight. Long flight from Boston to Zurich was so hard to bear. I understand making money...but this is ridiculous!!"

Cons: "We missed our flight going to Geneva from new York and so automatically lost the return portion of our flight. So had to totally rebook. The people at the Swiss air counter were not very helpful."

Cons: "Mackenzie Gray/ My flight was cancelled due to bad weather conditions unfortunately. I'm upset that I never received my initinerary for my substitute flight! I tried online and calling the # that was provided no results. I managed to get thru to someone and they told me they would send the info to my email but they never did."

Pros: "Staff walked around with water quite a bit, gave my kids a special kids meal"
Cons: "A little tight in economy and i am short"

Pros: "Air hostesses were very courteous, friendly and the cabin was clean and comfortable. My flight from jfk to Geneva (then Zurich) was cancelled due to weather in Geneva (Swiss 23) so I got upgraded to a delta flight to Brussels then to Zurich Comfort+ !!! Thank you!"
Cons: "Flight from Zurich to Johannesburg: Swiss 288 (airbus a340-300) Sat in the last row of the Swiss air flight, economy, which was okay but our whole row video enternatinment system didn’t work. You’d pick a movie and it wouldn’t play. The games, camera and flight status animation all worked but not the movies. Air hostess tried resetting , still nothing. But it was a great opportunity to have a lovely conversation with my new German Friend Barbara and read my book! More lactose intolerant alternatives for breakfast which had much (cheese, yogurt, croissant) Other than those two , excellent flight. Thank you Swiss!"

Pros: "Very good service"

Pros: "Quiet, staff do not bother you. Seats are big enough to rest."
Cons: "Boarding and sitting takes a bit of time."

Cons: "Landed in NY @ JFK with a missing luggage. That happens, I know and it can be ok but the sad thing is the very poor the service offered to take care of it. I have tried to call, no answer, I tried the link they gave me to track progress: NOTHING.... Called customer service, they gave me that number and that link telling me it was the only way!!! I am so frustrated right now!!!"

Cons: "My seat did not recline and my tv did not work"

Pros: "Very attentive to children at boarding and in-flight."

Pros: "Flight was fine. The attendants on board were friendly and efficient. The food was nice though there wasn't much variety in drinks."
Cons: "It was awful getting boarding passes and paying for check in luggage in Venice. I assumed we couldn't check in early online much like the earlier Lufthansa flight. Then when we got to the airport there were long lines to check in and no machines to self check in. When we finally got to the front of the line the woman said we had to pay for our checked baggage elsewhere and then come back for the boarding passes. Unheard of elsewhere. The people in the office where you pay for checked baggage took their time and chatted and had no sense of urgency. The first woman we spoke to apparently filled out the form incorrectly. We had to rush to get to the plane and we barely made it through long security lines. We almost missed the plane due to the lack of early information and check in, the cumbersome payment process, etc. It was the worst check in process ever."

Pros: "The food was really great! And the crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Many delays that seemed unnecessary. We waited for a while for late passengers to board, which seemed strange, given that last time when Swiss made me miss my transfer, the next plane left without me when delaying takeoff would not have been necessary at all. After the passengers arrived, we were delayed again because of weather. And once we arrived at Newark, we had to wait for over half an hour to get to the gate for some mysterious reason."

Pros: "The crew members were professional and we really appreciate their high quality of service. Love the food and we enjoyed the wide selections of entertainment that was provided."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Best airline I have ever flown"

Pros: "All was good except the snack - it was ok"
Cons: "n/a - quick flight"

Cons: "Airline lost my flight, no explanation and or apology. Seats were terrible could not move when seat in front was reclined. No economy plus, no reciprocal consideration for gold status on star alliance except for one checked bag free. I will never fly Swiss again"

Pros: "Great customer service."
Cons: "Breakfast was a strawberry yogurt, orange juice and a croissant. Sugar free options ie. Eggs, rye or whole grain bread are a few examples of sugar free breakfast items that could be provided."

Pros: "Same as above, we were really pleased with the service and the food, and the crew was great!"
Cons: "Seats a little close together but not terrible."

Pros: "The food and beverage offerings were very good. The service was excellent."
Cons: "I wish the dinner service flying from JFK to ZH could be made sooner in the trip to allow more lights out time to relax and try to sleep. I wish all the movies had subtitles so I could read rather than have to deal with the head phones and the bad quality sound they produce."

Pros: "Boarding was very quick and efficient. Seating arrangements were nice pretty average overall."
Cons: "The crew was terrible. Young and in experience was on thing. But worse was they did the bare minimum and then hid out in the back for the rest of the flight. They served a weird cheese sandwich mid flight and would roll their eyes if you asked for water. The food selection and taste was bland or way too salty."

Pros: "We were very pleased with our flight on Swiss Air."

Pros: "Only the crew was good"
Cons: "Ridiculous entertainment system - was impossible to watch a movie."

Pros: "I like that this plane had more leg room then other airlines."

Cons: "Late taking off. Late arriving. Tiny plane, no entertainment system, took everyone's carryon. Had to wait to get carryon back."

Pros: "Fast boarding and off boarding"
Cons: "Crew wasn’t as attentive. While my first flight (I had a layover) seemed extra attention and care was put into the cleanliness and order due to Covid, second flight seemed to be a little overcrowded."

Cons: "Seats could have been more comfortable. No space. Food made me sick."

Cons: "Everything was fine... I should have packed a snack because I’m always hungry! Will travel Delta again!"

Pros: "Flight attendant coughed in my face twice without covering her mouth while I was seated and she was passing out drinks and snacks"

Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Customer service"

Pros: "I apreciated how well informed he captain kept us. There were several delays but she communicated freely and helped us to feel safe."

Pros: "There was plenty of space under the seat in front of me for my personal items."
Cons: "There was an issue with a part on the plane so the flight was delayed so it could get fixed before takeoff. That is not a big deal, I'd rather it be safe than on time. But the way crew and staff handled it was pretty unprofessional. No one seemed to know what was going on or what to do."

Cons: "Best option across the pond, amazing upgrade prices"

Pros: "Inflight entertainment was great. Movies, games, moving map. Best I’ve ever seen in main cabin for free."

Cons: "We bought First Class tickets. But we were downgraded How do you think we should feel ? We have been in Charlotte since 9:30 AM It is now 6:45 PM Should we use the train to go home?"

Cons: "Online check in didn’t work. Called Delta 800# and rep said I needed to wait till I got to airport. Airport rep said I needed to use the KLM flight number, not the Delta number.W"

Pros: "Nicest staff"
Cons: "Nothing at all"

Pros: "El cumplimiento de vuelos"

Pros: "The pilot and the stewardess were very polite."
Cons: "Standing on line,it was slow cause only 1 person was help people check in. It would been better if everyone could check in with the kiosk machines. After half an hour than another person came to help. TSA move more fast cause so many people were working."

Pros: "The flight & landing were smooth, and we arrived a few minutes early."
Cons: "The entertainment system & WiFi were out. Wasn’t able to charge my phone either as the outlets weren’t functioning properly."

Pros: "in Charlotte"
Cons: "delay on flight"

Pros: "Service was fast and the inflight entertainment is free. Lots of movies to chose from, which is nice for the long flight."

Cons: "Multiple delays in Atlanta"

Pros: "Nothing other than it was over quickly."
Cons: "Seat did not recline at all."

Pros: "I love being on a smaller plane/jet! Boarding was painless and I had no problems with my two small bags. Due to a mix-up in seating, I had both seats to myself! We even got in will before the scheduled time! De-boarding took far less time than "regular" plane/jet!!!"

Pros: "Leg room was descent"
Cons: "Excessive delays. Was scheduled to leave CLT at 3:21 PM, then rescheduled to depart at 423; then waited on the tarmac to take off for about 45 mins total; didn't arrive in NYC until around 718 PM; very long day with Delta Airlines."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Flight was on time and even landed early. Boarding was seamless with bag tag. Seats were comfy. Crew was professional."
Cons: "A drink with no napkins? I know airlines need to cut costs but what if I spilled my drink or want to wipe my hands after eating pretzels Delta? You can still provide napkins."

Cons: "The flight was delayed for boarding, then delayed for take-off, then circled LaGuardia for an hour, diverted to JFK. They indicated weather, but JFK is 9.6 miles away... so weather really??!!"

Pros: "great boarding crew for an early morning flight."

Pros: "Free upgrade to Economy Plus"
Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour"

Cons: "My mother, Linda Thompson, has a progressive neuromuscular disorder, Dystonia. Along with this condition, stress can bring on non-epileptic seizures. My mother has had to endure one of these seizures due to the stress that this incident had put her through. As my mother's power of attorney, I am helping her vocalize this incident that she has experienced. The image below shows the spot where she was left, in the Atlanta airport, in her wheelchair. Delta airlines says they provide safe, accessible travel to all of their passengers. That includes providing an employee to transport physically disabled persons to and from their flights and to their shuttle. An employee accompanied my mother when she got off of her plane arriving in Atlanta from Charlotte. This employee was obligated to transport her where she needed to go. Due to her first flight being delayed, she missed her connecting flight in Atlanta, and had to stay the night until the connection could be made in the morning. They provided her with a voucher to a local hotel and a shuttle to that hotel. The employee who met her at the gate was obligated to help her get to that shuttle so she could get to her hotel in time. As many of us may know, Atlanta airport is one of the largest. You might need to take a train to get from one area to the next. It would be very difficult for my mother to walk that distance with her cane, and that is why she needed a wheelchair. The inconsiderate, selfish employee of whom needed to transport my mother to her destination was coming to the end of his shift. He attempted to hand my mother off to another employee at the desk while she was getting her voucher. Told her it was the end of his shift and he had to clock out. She told him, "You can't leave her here". Her statement, and the way she stated it, made my mother feel like she was a piece of luggage. She ignored it and let the employee take her on her way. She just wanted him to take her to her shuttle so that she could get to her hotel and rest. That did not happen. He strolled my mother along for a moment until they were out of site. They approached a gate, of which was empty, and he told her to wait here for an agent to come by. He left. She waited...and waited. No one ever came and assisted her. She was left like a piece of luggage in the middle of the Atlanta airport with no one around. My mother was treated like a bag that someone did not want to carry around anymore. This situation and the selfishness of that employee makes me think of who else could have been treated like this, or who else could be treated like this in the future. Help me spread this message so that something can be done about this issue. Delta has already been contacted, they do not care enough to do anything about it. I bet they will if this message gets heard by their potential future passengers."

Pros: "The issue is not with Lufthansa but with the Berlin Airport. First of all, It is not clear that you have to do the checkinn at terminal B and then come back to the gate where you have to go pass security. This is when it gets even more complicated, the line is long and slow, there is only one security arch and xray machine, is took us almost an hour to go through."

Cons: "We were put on standby. We expected our names to be called for seat assignments but we didn’t expect we could just swipe our boarding pass and our seat assignment would show. It’s a nice feature but I didn’t like that it wasn’t clearly explained to us."

Pros: "Lots of legroom, friendly crew, and they serve sandwiches! Asked for water after takeoff and they gave it to me without hesitation! I would definitely recommend them!"
Cons: "I can’t find anything to complain about."

Cons: "Boarding took longer than it should, flight left after scheduled time."

Pros: "The service was outstanding!"
Cons: "Someone stole my phone charger :("

Cons: "Flight was 2 hours late in departing from Frankfurt."

Pros: "Comfortable, great food, good selection of entertainment"
Cons: "The staff tried to helpful but lost at times"

Cons: "LH had to switch planes at MUC due to mechanical problems on the 1st plane => flight left 3hrs late, causing me to miss connecting flight at IAD => had to switch airport to DCA and use DL to get to BNA via ATL on the next day. had to wait in line for several hrs to get rebooked - overall dismal performance by LH, my image of them is shattered"

Pros: "Friendliness of the crew, they not only served us well, they were having fun doing it. Job well done. Thank you all."
Cons: "Nothing really, everything was great."

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

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Water was spilled on me by flight attendant. Luggage was left in Frankfort. Did not have clothes or medications, or daily necessities. Must wait 1 1/2 days to get luggage"

Cons: "Sounds in TV doesn’t work"

Pros: "1. Good choice of movies. The entertainment recommendations by airlines were well thought of. 2. Crew and service was one of the best. They timely came and offered juice and water. 3. We were well informed when flight had to make few rounds in the air before landing."

Cons: "Cramped space in economy class."

Pros: "Flight attendants very nice and efficient"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I just love flaying with Lufthansa Airline, absolutely love it! Everything starting from customer service to blankets is great quality."
Cons: "The food could be better tobut I was pleased with the service"

Cons: "It was a great flight"

Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"

Cons: "We departed late from Stockholm and then had to do a fly around when we approached Frankfurt because there was debris on the runway. We nearly missed our connection because of the delays."

Cons: "The cabin got a little hot during the night and made it hard to be comfortable. Also, the seats lean pretty far back so I had little room in front of me when the person sitting in front of me leaned their seat all the way back."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Not a thing"

Pros: "Had no problems. Was a comfortable flight."

Pros: "Love to be in the air... any flight"
Cons: "Price... When I found this flight it was under $500. As I waited for my check to be deposited the price went up nearly $500 as if it was programmed to go up if I didn't take book it the first time. From that point on, my flight was the highest priced flight np matter where I looked, my dates were the highest priced. Not happy. And my charges were more than the flight. How can that be fair. $400 flight $500 fee??? WTF??? But I needed the flight. I feel like I was screwed."

Pros: "The pilots"
Cons: "It was a bit hot in the salon. Food was average. Flight intendants were not very attentive. My neighbor was waiting for about 20 min to get someone picked up her empty glass. Entertainment: there was no Russian language."

Pros: "The energetic crew who served with a smile"
Cons: "The tea was not strong and was served lukewarm and movies not up to standard.how about new blankets...and food only a choice between 2...chicken or pasta..why not beef or mutton?"

Pros: "The service, room and entertainment."
Cons: "Huge delays all day caused me to miss my last flight to Honolulu even thought I was supposed to have a 4+ hour layover from LAX. I had to book a room that wasn't paid for and take a flight 24 hours later. I literally arrived home with my family a whole day later than was supposed to happen based all on Lufthansa delays."

Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"

Pros: "I like to fly LH on the BOS to FRA route as they are the only carrier to fly this route nonstop. Usually the service is quite good. The crew is attentive, offers water or juice repeatedly, gives you a warm moist handcloth before the mealservice to clean your hands. Check-in in FRa can be tedious becaiuse of long lines."
Cons: "LH experienced several strikes in the last two years or so. Once I had to stay an extra day, this time I had to cut a family visit a day short. While they handled the rebooking in both cases quite efficiently, not everyone might have the flexibility to change days so easily. It is also disappointing when one has to give up on a planned activity to make it back home on time. Movie selection could be updated and I miss having an actual newspaper or magazine to read on the long flight. Will have to pack my own oin the future."

Pros: "Absolutely the worst flight land and air stewards i havr ever seen. Would never flu with them againrude groun personel"

Pros: "Munich airport is convenient and boarding went smoothly"
Cons: "This was an SAA plane, not Lufthansa. I have only had excellent service on Lufthansa. This flight again did not have a functioning entertainment system. I asked for this to be addressed and the SAA crew ignored the request and in the morning looked surprised to find out that several of the TV monitors had not worked at anytime on the flight. Not impressed."

Cons: "Boarding was delayed by 30 minutes but they did not inform us of the delay so everyone stood in line the entire time."

Pros: "Entertainment choices, flight crew, terrific seats"
Cons: "Think boarding process would be so much smoother if you went from the rear of the plane to the front."

Pros: "New airplane A380-800. Staff was nice but no nonsense. Entertainment had good selections, although interface was a bit clunky and slow to respond."
Cons: "Almost no legroom to speak of so very cramped for a long flight."

Pros: "The flight crew was lovely, and the best part of the entertainment was the on plane cameras which we could watch. Very cool!"
Cons: "Gluten free meal for breakfast was a turkey sandwich?? I would have preferred yogurt"

Pros: "Punctual departure and arrival. Crew was professional if not always friendly."
Cons: "The worst food I can recall I have ever experienced on a plane. So bad that I didn't have more than an unfortunate bite from my "dinner" entree. The food was especially noteworthy as the trip over was so good... In the entertainment category, the sports and news line-up only had old soccer games..."

Cons: "I really felt the food was not as good as I had on other lines. To help I had the chicken - and the veggies with it were mush as was the spinach with the egg dish - which also did not have much flavor"

Cons: "Engine malfunctioned. Flight delayed 7 hours. All connections missed. Spent night in marginal hotel in Frankfurt."

"Always exceptional service"

Cons: "Not to have 2 distressed cats on board meowing non stop for 10 hours."

Pros: "Crew are the best!"

Pros: "I like the crew and their service, the food was amazing speacially the vanilla cheese cake desert was on point, loved it. I loved the “my flight “interaction on the screen and the different view of the plane, cockpit view, left, right etc.. amazing feature."
Cons: "The seat could have been much better as far as reclining and space. Overall I loved the flight."

Pros: "There is a nothing to mention that was memorable or comfortable."
Cons: "I asked for an upgrade as we are on our honeymoon. The ground staff only wanted to get us on the plane and not try in anyway to recognize us. Our seats were very poor quality, you should immediately replace them! I would have rather stood than sit on the flight. The in flight entertainment is so poor. Absolutely disappointing especially with the head sets not working because of poor ports of connection. The food was absolutely tragic. You should fire your catering company. I expect more from your airline and I was disappointed all the way through. I hope you can provide my wife and I better service and an upgrade when we fly back to Washington DC on Flight AF 0054 from CDG to IAD. I work in the luxury hotel sector, and even the door men and room attendants have more autonomy to wow our guests. Flying AF does not want me to spend any more money with your airline in the future."

Pros: "Crew asked us if we’d like to move to an empty row to be more comfortable without us even requesting it."
Cons: "Bigger coffee cups? Really nothing to complain about. Everything I would expect from a flight. A++"

Pros: "Na"
Cons: "They have a terrible communication problem, they never communicated why the flight was late, they never communicated what they were doing or what was happening. Bad customer service. Bad communication with the client. They told us when I asked several times that we would not lose our connection and that everything was fine and that was not the case. We lost the connection. No one told us anything. Another problem was that the girl in the boarding process removed the suitcases tickets from the boarding pass and did not want to return them, and held it without any cause. The flight staff went looking for us. Pretty sad and disappointed by their service. I understand that they were causes outside the airline but must communicate to the client. They cannot remain silent and say nothing."

Pros: "I've never been on a flight with such narrow seat and thin cushion. There was no entertainment offered for the almost 4 hour flight. There was no means of charging any electronic gears. The airplane seems to be 30 years behind time. Crew was unfriendly and smiling faces are not part of the uniform."
Cons: "Very narrow seats and thim cushion. No entertainment offered an do means of recharging electronic devices."

Pros: "Amasing crew"

Cons: "The best airline what I was flying so far !! Excellent food, drink, comfort seat, free entertainment with great selection."

Pros: "Not much, seats are super uncomfortable"
Cons: "Better code sharing with KLM"

Cons: "No leg room at all, cant believe those seats met legal standard. The plane smelled, boarding was a nightmare because too many people had big bags. An announcement had been madd that vags would be collected, but obviously were not."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "No wifi on a 9 hour flight. Takes a long time to get another round of coffee."

Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Food could be better, or at least be provided an option to purchase an upgraded meal. Also, insufficient amount of drinking water provided to passengers."

Cons: "Placed in last row w/ non-reclining seats, even though bought tix 7 months early. We travel w/ only carry-on bags. AF allows 35 kg each but only 12 kg in cabin. I asked, online, twice, if we could have a couple of extra kg for hand pieces. Rec’d only auto. luggage policy. Forced to check both bags."

Pros: "Crew was amazing. Service and food was good."
Cons: "Random TSA check was not needed at the end when boarding."

Pros: "The crew was pleasant and boarding efficient I lucked out with first class"

Pros: "cbvghjkl;"
Cons: "mmmm"

Cons: "Great experience"

Cons: "Better in flight entertainment"

Cons: "I have never been in a situation were a flight has been delayed due to the co-pilot suffering a knee injury prior to take off. A request for a doctor on board after an hour or so and then having to leave the plane and then re-board after about 40 minutes was quite bizarre."

Pros: "DIY snack area"
Cons: "Food and seating"

Cons: "Flight was delayed by at least an hour leaving Paris - a regular situation I experienced with AF."

Pros: "The plain was ok, the crew really nice and attentive. The only “problem” would be the food, mostly for the breakfast that was awful."

Pros: "Flight crew, pilot,food and entertainment options were great"
Cons: "Baggage took a while to reach baggage claim but maybe a bit impatient after a long day"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "25 min ahead schedule!!!"
Cons: "Cabin space, too narrow rows."

Pros: "Food was good. Crew nice and professional."
Cons: "Landing was not so smooth."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Everything. The crew seemed to skip over me and my husband multiple times. So we sat there with garbage the whole flight. My entertainment was broken and they had no solution but giving me $30 to use at the duty free shop the same day as the flighty. I paid extra for premium seating in an exit row and that was their idea of fair compensation. The crew ran out of vegetarian food so I didn’t eat anything but cold stale bread. The crew was non-existent most of the flight."

Pros: "Food has improved a lot on business class. Meals are more creative."
Cons: "Water bottles not given out unless ou ask for it. Crew needs to better trained with how to handle business class..."

Pros: "The entertainment screen was a small 4" screen. The movie selection was outdated. The screen in my seat did not work. Flight attendant said she would "call to have it reset" but it never worked. Fortunately, there was an adjacent empty seat that I moved to on my own initiative and without the flight attendant offering a seat change."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Plane left 45 minutes late. No reason given either when waiting or after late boarding. I didn't eat as I tried to sleep byt narrow seats meant being woken constantly by fidgety neighbour. Fortunately the plane made up most of the lost time and I got my next Air France flight. This one was 50 minutes late departing."

Pros: "Nice staff, very professional and helpful."

Pros: "Priority boarding with kids"
Cons: "Nothing special just like easyJet ir Rayanair"

Pros: "La entrada"
Cons: "El resto de cosas"

Cons: "Booked assistance and got dumped at the gate 3hrs before departure, no English spoken and didn't even ask if my mum needed the bathroom or if we wanted to do some shopping. Just in a rush to get rid of us. Flying only KLM from now."

Pros: "Service was excellent, top of line Food ,some of the best I’ve had on a airline Seats & pillows comfy But we were in La Première! Also the equipment- a380 was terrific"
Cons: "Only 1 bathroom (toilet) for all of first class"

Cons: "Not checking my carry on weight at check in then letting me walk all the way to security to then check my bag and tell me to go back to check in then the counter is closed and they tell me it's too late and that I need to get ride of my things so that my bag is under weight and barely making the flight"

Pros: "Good boarding procedure."
Cons: "Nothing much to add for a short journey."

Pros: "Efficient on and off Staff polite and helpful"

Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Food could be a bit better. White bread is unhealthy."

Pros: "Flight arrived safely."
Cons: "Air France offered no help rebooking missed connection at JFK due to delay of more than 2 hours in arrival."

Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The food was really poor. The chicken was as dry as it can be. The food taste was poor. I flow 3 weeks ago with KLM and the food was pretty good for flight food. In a French company I expect much more. The entertainment system on the airbus a380 was like an enchant IT system from the past. Very poor reaction time. Very messy and not people oriented at all. Especially after KLM's And Delta experience."

Pros: "Best flight I've ever flown. Blankets and pillows provided with many options for movies."

Pros: "I like that they still feed you and provide alcohol for free, even on a 40 min flight (unlike BA)."
Cons: "At one point during the flight I took a video out of my window with my camera, a member of the cabin crew barked at me in French. In bewilderment I asked her in English to repeat herself and she sarcastically repeated what she had said, in French, I asked for her to speak in English (which she had done to me previously on this Paris to London flight) yet again she scolded me in French. I was left absolutely none the wiser and it left a bad taste in my mouth."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "No entertainment or usb plugsto charge."

Pros: "Good food. Although no Cappucino as in AF from Sanfransisco to Paris."
Cons: "No entertainment at al. Specifically, I could not lean my seat b/c of a mom with a baby behind me..."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Ground service at check-in was very poor: Misinformation and failure to provide a level of service that other SkyMiles partners provide for Gold level traveler."

Pros: "Although plane was full staff moved us through quickly"

Cons: "Disorganised boarding with people allowed to bring on multiple and oversize bags that by the airlines own admission delayed departure"
