No where in the world has an airline ever asked me for this, and I fly a fair bit. Since I didn't allow them to extort me, they forced me to throw away my brand new Delsey hand carry at the airport.

Pros: "flat bed business class seats"
Cons: "flight was delayed by more than four hours. as per the ground staff due to technical hitch but as per the pilot due to run way maintenance in COK. but there were other flights from Emirate, Jet, Ethihad all flying in and out without any issues, so doubt why only runway maintenance for QR.."

Cons: "I am quite tall (6'5"/1.92m), the in flight comfort was brutal. It'll take my knees a week or two to forget the constant jamming from the seat in front of me. Otherwise, on boarding was well organized, but very slow. Sound quality on provided headphones was very poor."
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "I didn't appreciate the fact that Qatar opened so late at the Abu Dhabi airport, nor did I appreciate that the woman who printed out my boarding pass royally screwed up and printed gate 8 , when in fact it was gate 3. That was total BS. Supposing I missed my flight due to her negligence ??"

We spoke to a flight attendant about it early on in the flight, spoke to the kids and spoke to the parents. Then spoke to the kids and parents mid flight. And then spoke to them all, including a flight attendant towards the end of the flight. The issue was never resolved. We asked to change our seats but could not. We asked for the parents to trade seats with the kids and they would not. It was the worst, most uncomfortable flight I have ever taken. And I fly regularly for work and for pleasure. It was an absolutely horrible experience. I was actually in tears on the flight because I was so tired, uncomfortable and frustrated."

Pros: "I loved the amount of attention and consoling that was given to an ailing elderly woman on my flight to Turkey! On my flight to Ghana the attendants were so gentle and provided a lot of ammenities. Oh and the hotel was an amazing experience and respite especially after the run-around at the airport. Thank you"
Cons: "I did not enjoy the run-around I was given in trying to find the hotel desk. “50 meters then turn left” was the anthem. All someone had to say was go outside the airport and you’ll find the hotel desk! Hehe thank you Turkish Airlines however! Thank you."
Pros: "Very efficient flight, quick and handy. No extra details, but have to say the breakfast they served was excellent. Probably the best I have had on such short 1hr flight."

Cons: "turbulence throughout but this is beyond your control I know, we just had nasty weather not on our way from Los Angeles to Istanbul though"
Cons: "Food: they gave you a menu so you can pick up an option (by half way through lunch service they run out of one of the options) They also didn't provide enough water, it's a transatlantic flight! Few options for beverages. Boarding: messy. You have a seating section for a reason (besides pricing). Also connecting flights from IST to the US are horrible. Four point checks and manual screening."
Pros: "Nothing. The flight never happened coastumwr service was very bad"
Cons: "The were not very helpful, I lost the plain and they refuse to change my dates. I am I elderly women and they took advantage.

Pros: "Seats were very comfortable with a foot rest, stuff went out of their way to help. I fell asleep and miss the dinner, when I woke up I was hungry and they went out of their way and fed me.

Cons: "i had asked for an aisle seat and ended up on seat 7C which is the one that is next to the seat where the stewardess sits down. I wouldn't have minded at all but my seat and the one next to it didnt recline anywhere near as much as every other seat in the whole airplane. It was really uncomfortable for me and the person who was seating next to me. Hopefully this will be the last time i get stuck in that kind of seat."

Cons: "The worst customer service ever. Turkish airlines changes 6 hour transit time we purchased to more than 24 hours transit time and they refuse to help us when we try to change the flight to other day. Because of that we are forced to stay in terminal for morethan a day with out any hotel arrangment. I wouldn't recommend their service to any one. So sad"

Cons: "The plane was overbooked with MANY seats having been doubly assigned. After more than half an hour we were given a new seat assignment (in first class! Business class had already been filled with other double bookings!). They did their best to accommodate everyone though and the remainder of the flight was very pleasant."
Cons: "From the moment we boarded until we arrived home he trip was a disaster"
Pros: "I had a great time during my flight from istanbul to Seoul . My seat didn't recline and cabin crew immediately helped and took me to a business class as an apology . They were very responsive to any time i needed help . And the food was amazing . Even the economy class gets gourmet meals . Also the entertainment was quite good . They have big tv screen for each seat and have all sorts of shows and movies from international to hollywood . And have games for kids ... Overall i was very pleased with my flight ."
Pros: "Friendliness toward kids was really good."
Cons: "The movies didn't work until an hour after the flight started. Really."
Cons: "Our flight was canceled and we lost an entire day of our vacation (apartment rental, car rental, etc). Before leaving to Istanbul when we were in New York we asked if they would reroute our flights from New York City to Naples, Italy since the terrorist attack occurred in Istanbul causing the airport to be shut down. We were reassured that there would be no problems and we would be rerouted once we landed in Turkey, and lo and behold our flights were canceled. We had to spend the day in Turkey, pay for our own food, and pay for the visa €30 per person. This all could have been avoided had they rerouted our flights to another city."
Cons: "My flight was supposed to leave at 3 am. Not was delayed till 4:30. I had only 25 minutes to catch the other flight. I made it last minute. I asked the Turkish airline representative at the gate if my bag is on the plane. He said "yes". When I arrived to London I couldn't fibd my bag. I spent more than an hour looking for it since the employee assured me it was loaded to the plane, the person who was waiting to pick me yo had to pay around 15£ parking and wait for one hour and a half. I arrived without luggage. I have everything in the bag, my umbrella, jacket, cloths, pajamas, underwater, everything... the allowance that Turkish Airlibe said they will give allowed me to only buy a Pajama. I am totally NOT satisfied. I will not travel on this Airlibe again"
Pros: "The company gave us a hotel for the layover."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable"
Pros: "The food was exceptional! The staff was always accommodating. Attention to the details was appreciated."

Cons: "The cramped seating. Unable to have any ventilation on window seat. Some food not good."
Pros: "I had a connection flight which would not be for another 11 hours so I left the airport to get some sleep coming back the same carry-on I have with me now cannot come with me they want me to pay 40euro. In the meantime the flight is 40% empty and plenty of over head and yes is the same size of plane I came in the first place. However the agent was nice after I explain my situation she not charges me."
Cons: "Same airline coming from one place have different methods it’s a bit confusing."
Pros: "Everything is well organized, crew members were great."
Cons: "Aircraft A330-300 sucks. It is SLOW! Boeng-777 did Moscow-Houston flight in 10 hours, but this A330 flew from Frankfurt to Atlanta in the same time. Shelves for baggage are small - it is not enough room for all passenger bags. Entertainment can be better. Food... It could be SIGNIFICANTLY better! Or just do not serve it et al. If I could I would not buy it."
Pros: "Comfy seat."
Cons: "Plane was late, crew was surly."
Pros: "Quick, comfortable and easy"

Pros: "The crew was polite and efficient. Moved very well around sleeping passengers sprawled feet. The shortcomings of the flight had to do with being in a tail section of an economy class in a packed transoceanic flight."
Cons: "At the beginning of the long flight the cabin was chilled, which made me happy I had my hooded sweatshirt with me, but at the end it was hot and stuffy. There was no air regulation available from the seat, only light."
Pros: "Crew is phenomenal! Food was good. Comfortable overall"
Cons: "Media screen did not work and flight attendant was indifferent and made no attempt to resolve. If a passenger made a request we/they were told they were too busy. Food was minimal at beat."
Pros: "Service on the DFW-->FRA leg was phenomenal (ratio of attendants to fliers). Food was delicious and seats very comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding process and organization could have been a bit better in communicating access and groups. Not super critical, but the goal in in process is to be as efficient as possible."

Pros: "Nothing positive to report...NOTHING!!"
Cons: "Worse travel day of my life. I'll never fly Lufthansa again and never go thru Frankfort again. Lost luggage both ways. Awful experience!! Hundreds of gates and we had to ride a bus out to the plane. Airline kept complaining to passengers that they didn't have enough personnel. Flight was late! Given totally incorrect information about luggage retrieval in Chicago. Not required! Waited 45 minutes for luggage that was not there and was supposed to be headed to Houston but did not arrive there either. Still waiting..."
Cons: "First flight was canceled and we had a pleasure (after 12 hours flight from SJC to FRA) to spend another 11 hours in the airport."
Cons: "One of the crew members was rude to me"
Pros: "Everything in order and on time."
Pros: "flights were on time"
Cons: "food quality can be improved"
Pros: "Everything was great overall. Flight wasn’t full, so I had some nice extra space for the long flight."
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac for two hours before take-off due to snow and ice. The flight itself was fine. Deplaning in Shanghai sucks. Economy class had to wait inside the plane while business class was let out and shuttled first because the plane parked out away from building and we had to walk down steep stairs and then ride a shuttle bus to the building."
Pros: "W we’re a few minutes late and they waited for us. We truly appreciate their cooperation. 5 strat services."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled."
Cons: "entertainment was not working! the flight to Frankfurt was late and I missed the connection to rome! crew told me to run for the connection but ad the gate they told me they had already put me on a later flight! no need to run like crazy across the airport if they had me already booked me on a later flight! missed my train connection in rome to bari...asked the airport lufthansa rep. to put me on a flight to bari but they told me they couldn't do it although there was a flight available!"
Pros: "online booking"
Cons: "There is no one at Kayak to answer questions on weekends. Message says "call back during 'regular' business hours" but does not specify what that means, nor what time zone they are in. (BTW, most people travel on weekends so ya may want to consider providing customer service then...duh). When I finally was able to reach someone in order to upgrage to Premium Economy, they could not help me but said they would send an email with an answer to how much that would cost. The email never came. I will never book with Kayak again."
Pros: "The flight overall was smooth. The staff was great and friendly. I normally don't like flying but if ii had to fly again I would pick Lufthansa."
Pros: "great flight attendants - very friendly and attentive"
Cons: "The landing was extremely turbulent - an announcement from the pilot would have been nice."
Pros: "Boarding efficient. Chicago counter very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Some flight attendants friendly and helpful, others not so much Don't change your mind about an item or next time attendant will ignore you. If the customer speaks English, do not assume they don't understand German - so please treat your passengers well. Food was not good, have had better on Lufthansa"
Cons: "Flight delayed by about an hour"
Pros: "Clean plane, decent entertaiment"
Cons: "the food was pretty much the same that we had during our previous flight from Moscow to Frankfurt and of the same mediocre quality. the plane was freezing cold - this was the first time in my frequent travels that i had to use the provided blanket. My girlfriend used 2 of them. When I called the flight attendant for the extra blanket using the bottom nobody showed up - I had to stop an attendant passing by to get the extra blanket."
Cons: "Do not choose this Airline by any means."
Cons: "Rude cabin crew, dirty plane, have to pay extra, they will accept USD but give you change in euros. Extra luggage fees and ridiculous weight limitations"
Pros: "Very polite and attentive service. Took off and arrived on time, Plane seems new and clean."
Cons: "Seat 31G had extra legroom. That was great, but no one told me that it would be a few inches narrower than normal economy. The elbow rest had a single layer and thus couldn't be shared with the adjacent passenger. I'm 220 lbs and he was around the same size. I literally spent the entire flight with my arms crossed to avoid pressing into him. That seat is meant for kids or very thin people. There should be a warning."
Cons: "I had a short transit time in Munich (40 minutes). Munich website promises that this is possible and that gates are close to each other and if the first flight is late, then someone will help you to your next flight. My first flight was about 10 mins late. Although assistance was provided to people connecting to some of the other flights, no-one helped me with my connection. I asked two ground staff and was just told to make my own way to the next gate, which was not close. It was in a different terminal! After literally running through two terminals, I did not make it to the gate in time and had to wait for the following flight which got me home over three hours late. Lufthansa did give me a five euro meal voucher though (which doesn't buy very much in an airport cafe)."
Pros: "On-time, excellent and friendly service. I received the special meal I requested (vegetarian Asian) and it was very tasty."
Cons: "Not very many English language movies. I wasn't able to get the subtitle in English for the German programs."
Pros: "Flight was only about 60% full. Wine was offered with each beverage pass....also cognac offered after dinner. Plane was newer,comfortable. Lots of legroom in our "more legroom" upgraded seat. Departed on time and arrived early."
Cons: "Goulash meal meat was gristle and inedible. Other food was O.K."
Pros: "Pleasantly greeted"
Cons: "Lack of space makes flying pure torture. When will airrlines get it regarding customer needs?! Crew not accessible in between serving times"
Pros: "Service was good, boarding was fast, no other issues."
Cons: "The seat pitch is inhumane. I could barely fit into the seat without hitting my knees on the seat in front. And that was before the person ahead of me reclined. It's not like Lufthansa is a budget airline. It's a full-fledged major carrier charging full-fledged prices. Seriously, I was expecting more."
Pros: "Staff was friendly. They fixed my flight from Frankfurt to Denver and got me an aisle seat."
Cons: "Leaving late from BOTH legs on the way to England. :-( Being told in email that I was going to have an aisle seat on the flight from Frankfurt to Denver, but then on the day I was told I wouldn't."

Cons: "Very small cramped seats in business class. Would not fly again."
Cons: "No boarding advantages as a star alliance silver member."

Pros: "Clean and comfortable aircraft."
Pros: "Struedal snack and drink (not only 1 drink, but offered if wanted more) all in a 1 hour 15 min flight. Most other large carriers barely offer a drink, let alone a snack. And not just peanuts or pretzels, streudal! Very pleasant staff, multi-lingual. Would love to fly them again."
Cons: "I booked less than a week ago and picked our seats in a two seater row, but when we boarded it was three seater rows on both sides of plane. So the aircraft must have changed. I prefer a window seat so instead I had to sit in the middle because I did not know about the change."
Cons: "There was a delay of more than 1 hour."
Cons: "The airplane broke from Abudabi to Delhi with 4 hrs delay."
Cons: "Warm beer"

Pros: "Good service, organized, really good food, comfortable seats."
Cons: "Bad baggage policy. No entertainment."
Cons: "There was no S7 rep in Berlin Tegel airport and the agents in Frankfurt did not respond. So my son had to call us in the US to take care of the problem. We got hold of the agent through a US number, but no solution was offered other than simply buying a new ticket for a not so good price. I ended up getting no credit whatsoever and buying a new ticket on Finnair because the S7 offered a new ticket for two days later than the day on which they described event took place."
Cons: "Our son missed the outbound flight from Berlin, Germany, to St. Petersburg, Russia. The airline does not have any representation in Germany except in Frankfurt. He could not get hold of them by phone from Berlin, so we had to call from the United States. It turned out that we could not call S7 directly at all - instead we had to call Vyama. They told us that by missing the outbound flight, he also missed the inbound flight. Therefore, we had to buy a new ticket and pay whole price again for the flight two days later. This is not the practice that is used by other companies - which offer at least some credit."
Pros: "The flight was smooth, and the flight attendants were hardworking and attentive."
Cons: "The meals smelled so bad when the trolley went past that I actually thought it was a problem with the toilets. A roll, a slice of brown bread, no butter, a packet of ketchup, and a yellow jelly/jello with tiny pieces of canned pineapple suspended. The main course featured rice that somehow managed to be dry and overcooked at the same time, and a flavorless chicken patty. Our flight was nearly four hours late taking off, because the incoming flight required a replacement aircraft. We were promised a complimentary drink that never appeared. No entertainment on a four-hour flight, which is standard."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and attentive. They made me feel welcome."
Cons: "They waited on the other 3 people before me in Business class so the beef option was not available when it was my turn to be asked. I chose the fish and it was very very dry. The potatoes were dry too. The cake tasted old. I was disappointed with the food on this flight."

Seating is fine if you're not too large, and if there's room on board, you can reseat yourselves if you do get separated from your fiance (separate bookings) From the boarding agents to the gate attendants, friendly folks. Passengers aren't rush (and friendly as well). No complaints, good flight, on time and no issues!"
Cons: "Boarding can be a bit chaotic."
Pros: "It got me to where I was going"
Cons: "A 3 hour flight was a 25 hour process, bouncing from one place to the next. Nobody knew what they were doing."
Cons: "Check in took 1,5 hours, while the S7 who was operating the flight representative was just walking around and disturbing the airport employees which made check in slower. There was no space for the hand luggage inside the plane. Seems that it is too small for such flights. The crew was not nice at all. This is the worst flight experience I have ever had in my life. Flew with S7 around 10 years ago, when they were called Siberia Airways - nothing changed since then."
