Cons: "We were late arriving, the cabin crew although they were pleasant, didn’t do enough to allow the passengers to get off first, for the connecting flight. Malaysian airlines stayed in the runway, fixing an engine and the pilot said they were delaying the plane, driving in for passengers to disembark. After being told by cabin crew that a number of us were late for connecting flight, that they were going to wait for us, they didn’t and we were told we had missed the flight. We were kindly put on the next flight which wasn’t until five hours later. Unrealistic scheduling causes is to miss our flight and had us sitting at the airport for four hours, making it an unnecessarily long day. Not impressed."

Cons: "On my flight from PHL to KHI, both legs had perfect head/necks that were adjustable. But on the flight from DOH to PHL, the neck rest was awful - it only adjusted vertically (unlike the other flights), and it was too thick so that my neck was in an extremely uncomfortable position for 14 hours - not fun!"
Pros: "business cabin nearly empty. comfortable seats"
Cons: "Expensive WiFi"
Pros: "Everything was good - food, entertainment, on time."
Pros: "I had never heard of Qatar Airways before I booked a 24hr flight to and from Sydney, Australia. I only did this on the suggestion from a friend that stated Qatar Airways was "alright". So for the price I thought what the heck! I was extremely pleased with the service from the cabin crew. They are always polite, professional, and well trained compared to my previous favorites Delta and Lufthansa. The seats were comfortable (as comfortable as Economy and 24hours of flying can be), the entertainment and aircraft were state of the art, and the food was outstanding for airline food. If I get the chance in the future I will definitely choose Qatar Airways for long trips."
Cons: "Other rude or snotty passengers taking up the crews time and attention for no reason. But as I stated in the "positive" side of this review, the crew handled these impolite individuals with a smile and polite attitude. Kudos to Qatar Airways."
Pros: "Plane was clean and modern. Staff was very courteous. An overall pleasant flight."
Pros: "Very affordable flights, good value for money. Most of the journey from Sydney to Oslo (via Doha) went qiluite smoothly)."
Cons: "The only thing I didn’t like about the experience was the fact that you can only check in one piece of luggage on economy class, and one very sour individual at the gate when boarding."
Cons: "No food on board!! Staff says it got over when i have selected my food selection!!"
Pros: "quick eficient"
Cons: "long flight"
Pros: "Stellar crew -- super friendly, served water/juices constantly, polite, attentive. To be commended Great choice of movies and entertainment but no wifi???"
Cons: "This was an older 777 -- no wifi -- pretty surprising on such a key flight at DOH-JFK! This is not the airline's fault but I had a crazy lady next to me who was very disoriented, who could not speak English and needed assistance. No one would deal with her! She had a little pouch with her name on it -- like a UM -- so someone knew something was not right when they put her on the flight. I bought drinks inside the terminal for this 14 hour flight but they were all confiscated at the additional security at the gate!! WTF"
Pros: "The in flight service was good"
Cons: "The time it took to get the baggage. It took over 2 hours"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and I liked that they didn’t make many announcements which can often keep passengers awake when they’re trying to sleep. Lights were kept off for the duration of the 14 hour flight which was good."
Cons: "I felt that the service was slow and the food was poor. Water was not offered during the flight as is the norm with other airlines. Toilets should be cleaned more regularly. Advertising at the beginning of the inflight entertainment became very repetitive when watching short tv shows."
Pros: "Water bottle"
Cons: "There was no snack for the people that don't sleep, it's a long flight, I'd suggest instant noodle cups for those or chips or cookies (I know they hand them out maybe once, but maybe have it near the bathroom, so when people are hungry they don't have to bother the crew)."
Pros: "Seats should be comfortable, improve your menu, Pakistani dishes should be added, sweat dishes are hot and tasteless"
Pros: "Excellent staff, good service."
Cons: "A Long. Trip"
Cons: "Did not know what Vegetarian Jain meal should taste like! Even goats and sheep woud not have liked the taste of this special meal. Fortunately, cabin crew member was kind enough to give me a regular Hindu veggie meal rather than my pre-selected Vegetarian Jain meal (VJML) - DO NOT CHOOSE VJML on Qatar, unless you wanna faint from the horrible food! The tray was dirty! Co-passengers in the row behind me were also complaining The audio lead of my headphone would not go into the outlet in the seat armrest! So I had to use audio from neighboring (empty) seat and sync it with video from screen for my seat. What a pain!"
Pros: "I enjoyed my flight overall with good service by the attendants. Additionally, the food quality was good for an economy meal."
Cons: "long layover and very tight seat conditions were my only big complaints."
Pros: "Service great and on time"
Cons: "Lounge in Cape Town was bad."
Cons: "the wifi was average at best. I get that we there are limitations...but if the service is going to be this poor, make it free & unlimited."
Pros: "I like the extra space between the seats that most of their airplanes had; the exception was, I think, the 767. The crew went above and beyond to take care of your needs and always had a smile on their faces."
Cons: "The check-in process, leaving Bangkok and leaving Doha, was horrible. Why do I have to wait until 3 hours before my flight departs to check-in and get my boarding pass? This made for long lines and took about 2.5 hours to get a boarding pass in Bangkok"
Pros: "All the stewards were so friendly and helpful. The facilities were very well serviced and so you forget that the plane was 100% full, despite long queues to the toilets. I would fly again with Qatar Air for sure."
Cons: "Requested Asian vegetarian mean but available was non vegetarian. Led screen did not working."
Cons: "Front row with a toddler meant that we couldn't lift the armrests up and get her to lay down. She had to lie on the floor, but when we hit some turbulence, we had to wake her and sit her back up with us. The second part of the leg was much better as we were on a normal row seat"
Pros: "Great food, and excellent choice of in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Poor communication about transfers. I also had to throw away 20 pounds of things or get charge $800"
Pros: "Boarding, the welcome on board, the food choice and quality were all excellent. The seat was comfortable as I didn't want to sleep. The entertainment screen was big and clear, and the choice of films was good. The member of flight crew, a Latvian lady, who looked after me onboard was a real star, very efficient but still had time to chat."
Cons: "The choice of films and tv programmes, was good, but before watching each one i chose, I had to endure a couple off minutes of an advert- the same one every time."
Pros: "Good service, plenty of entertainment options, modern aircraft."
Pros: "Staff was very friendly and food was very good."
Cons: "Older plane, TV screens in the ceiling, only bathrooms at the rear of the plane."
Pros: "Pleasant crew"
Cons: "Crowded flight, late departure."
Cons: "JKIA airport was terrible. Staff were late to come to the check in counters. Why can't they be there earlier than one hour so we don't have to stand in line for so long with our bags. Totally shambolic affair."
Pros: "On time, clean and joyful"
Cons: "Food is not up to the standard. They make announcements that there will be snacks like sandwiches and ice creams, but they don't offer that openly. You have to ask for snacks. Now we, US citizens don't like to ask for food just so you know. The crew should offer. if we don't need the food, we can always say no."
Pros: "1. Comfortable. 2. Good crew 3. On time 4. No hiccups."

Pros: "The flight was great. Very comfortable chairs. Wonderful lunch. professional service Alex"
Cons: "Back support for the seat...but I always bring extra pillow and I’m ok"

Cons: "Foooood Asiana airline foods are worst"
Cons: "Meal the beef steak taste like beef jerky"
Pros: "Even coach had plenty of room"
Cons: "Appreciate that there was food in flight but the taste left much to be desired. The entertainment selection was extremely sparse and could have been much better with English subtitles."
Cons: "not enough movie choices. Flight delayed 30 minutes, had to deplane on tarmac & ride shuttle bus to terminal, waited 30 minutes for luggage causing passengers from another flight arriving later to get taxis first so had to wait another 30 minutes for available taxis."
Cons: "Too cold"

Pros: "On time arrival; professionalism."
Cons: "The business class seat is cramped for business class standards. I also wanted seconds for dessert but somehow I was made to feel it was not allowed, that the FA has to check with someone if there was enough on board. Mind you the plane was not full."
Cons: "Delayed boarding and landing by an hour. Missed connection."
Pros: "Service was very good, spoke English and the inflight entertainment was very good"
Pros: "The food and service were very good. Each of the crewmembers I encountered was professional, courteous, and friendly. I also enjoyed the food, and for the first time in my life I think I said "no thank you, that's enough"!"
Cons: "first, although this was an international trip , in business class, the seats were more like something you would find in the premium economy section of other airlines. They were tired and outdated. Second, The entertainment package was abysmal. Basically, you were forced to watch a TV with bad reception, and no ability to choose what you wanted to see other than flipping through the channels and seeing what was already on. That meant never seeing the beginning of a movie. The picture quality was very poor. Although an international flight of seven hours duration, it felt more like a charter bus to Vegas buy a discount operator. I have the exact same experience flying from Korea to San Francisco on a prior trip. If I could learn how to determine which aircraft I would be flying in the future, I would never book an international trip on Asiana knowing that this particular aircraft would convey me."
Cons: "4 hour late :-( Unacceptable."
Pros: "Provision of on flight slippers, sleeping pillow and blanket, toothbrush and toothpaste Comfortable and easy boarding and check in"
Cons: "More varieties and kinds of meals and food should be provided such as muslim halal food Minimize transit waiting time Increase checked in baggage limit if possible"
Pros: "Excellent. more leg room, and very friendly staff. I loved it."
Cons: "Everything, this is the worst flight(s) for a 16year old to experience. Missing connecting flights, rerouted to arrive 2 days later and missing luggages. And airlines did not compensate jack sh!t."
Pros: "Staff were excellent. They're the big part of the reason why we fly Asiana. American-owned airlines are rude, old and crabby."
Cons: "The food was hit or miss. Our first meal was ok. 2nd meal was just a sandwich which is not that great. The 3rd meal which was chicken was dry and tasteless. My husband and I couldn't eat it. It's like eating a styrofoam cup."
Pros: "Crew was kind"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, entertainment was broken, food was bad."
Cons: "The food is always our problem, bec we r not used to eating Korean food, and by the time they ask us what food we can get? They run out every time they get to us , who , like us who are in the back seats- all is left is Korean food and we have no choice! Please make more food varieties, thank you"
Pros: "Both of my roung trip got delayed for about an hour. The service was very so so compared to Korean Air. I couldn't get tickets through Korean Air because of no ticket available but next time I will definitely look forward Korean Air only."
Cons: "Just about everything."
Pros: "Great food - really yummy - and a really easy, reasonably comfortable flight."
Cons: "The headphones only transmitted the sound through one ear."
Pros: "The headphone jack was in the seat in front, not in the armrest; slippers were passed out"
Cons: "The plane got hot half-way through the flight."
Pros: "This is the first time we flight with Asiana Airline .The food was good. (Vegetarian) . The service was great. just as comfortable as other airlines. But cheaper . Would go again with this airline"
Cons: "They changed our seat assignments, putting someone on the end of our row even though there were many other empty seats. As a result of the constriction, my feet and ankles swelled up. I can barely walk."
Pros: "I was the only one in my row."
Cons: "Changed flight without notifying. 27hr Stand By. 4hr layover in Korea. Stuartess had attitudes. Still have 11hr flight to LAX"
Pros: "Crew was super. 2 wonderful hot meals."
Pros: "Attentive flight attendants"
Cons: "No individual or directional air nozzle. No personal hygiene kit in lavatory for tooth brush, No power source"
Pros: "The service was excellent."
Cons: "Nothing I didn't like about the airline"
Pros: "The costumer service was amazing. Their service made all the difference in the comfort and peace of mind for the duration of my trip."

Pros: "Depart and return delayed for 2 hours, we missed the bus to the ski resort"
Pros: "Food is good. Movies are good"
Cons: "It's a 2 decker plane and full. 2 of the bathrooms are not working. Flight stewardess on flight not so attentive. Inside of plane is hot."
Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "No vegetarian option for meals like most other flights have these days. On the return flight I even tried to book one online and could not find where/how to do it. I also asked upon check in and was told it takes 2 days at least to request a veggie meal. This is really pathetic considering I'm flying from a part of the world that has a high Buddhist population."
Pros: "I particularly liked the seamlessness of the experience - from the downtown checkin and getting a boarding pass at Seoul station, taking the AREX, the efficiency and competence of the front line personnel, etc. I will recommend Asiana and I would consider taking them long distance except that I am a goldcard frequent flier with American/British/Cathay for many years now. Chicago talks about seamlessness in its airport experience but its train-to-the-plane is the chronic weak link."
Cons: "Nothing - I'd tell you if there was. I didn't bother with entertainment for a two-hour flight and I was already well into a really eloquent novel (I'll Be Right There) by Kyung-Sook Shin; check it out"
Cons: "baggage fees"
Pros: "My assigned seat 10C was so comfortable bec of the large leg room"
Cons: "The TV monitor was hard to operate."
Pros: "Kind crew smiling, good quality of the food (all is free), variety of entertainment program"
Pros: "The outlet on the armrest for the headphones was broken. 10+ hour flight and unable to watch a movie or listen to music. Flight was fully booked, so I was unable to move to a different seat. Flight attendants were very kind. Food was terrible and it took forever to get a drink - served AFTER the meal was served. When later beverages were offered, it was coffee/tea at one point. Other than that they walked around with a tray occasionally with glasses of orange juice or water -- no ice. Only passed through with the full beverages cart once during the fight. I completed a complaint form and still have not heard back from the airline. Paid full price for a one-way ticket. Did NOT get muy money's worth."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The service was very good. The crew and staff were courteous, fast and efficient. We left on time, they didn't lose my luggage, they communicated with the passengers very well. I like the legroom in the aircraft and the overall cleanliness. I will definitely fly Asiana again and recommend it to others."
Pros: "The crew was extremely efficient and friendly. They made sure everyone was accommodated."
Cons: "The plane itself was old, meaning it had less leg room. The entertainment system was also an old, channel-based system, which meant you had to start on time to watch a movie, and could not choose which one you wanted to watch at which time. The screen display resolution was also very poor, as were the movie choices."
Cons: "Cramped overhead luggage space. Delayed due to technical reasons. Previous flight was completely cancelled."
Pros: "The crew was very hospitable. Good food."
Cons: "The champagne should be served more chilled and the bottle should be stopperd to preserve its bubbles through the end of the flight. Avianca lounge at MIA is subpar."
Cons: "Change the mousse flavor, please. The hummus was terrible."
Pros: "The food was great, customer service also good and price is Afordable"
Pros: "Smooth flight. Food was better than flight out of NY. Very tasty. Terrific crew."
Cons: "Seat was a bit cramped but this was a coach seat so my expectations were not high. Aircraft was smaller than first flight so seats were also smaller."
Pros: "Good movie selection. Good (airline) food."
Cons: "Not much legroom."
Pros: "Good Timing"
Cons: "It took over an hour for Business class bags to come out. Not sure why I paid for business class if they don't know to offload them first in Dubai. Really ruined the first experience with Turkish Air."
Pros: "Food and entertainment was great."
Cons: "Delayed at origin and layover. Crew was a bit hard to track down at times."
Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "More alcohol choices"
Pros: "I loved everything, the ticket purchase, the check in, the free first bag, the cabin crew, the amazing food and eating with non plastic forks and spoons."
Cons: "The plane was a little too cold.i noticed that 90% of the people on the plane had covered themselves in blankets."
Pros: "On title"
Pros: "I'll recommend Turkish airline to anyone because of the cabin crew and the pilots. I enjoyed the service and we had a safe trip. I also like the entertainment service. I was able to watch the live TV news to keep me update."
Cons: "I didn't like the food. It's taste sour. The foods needs improvement."
Pros: "The flight was slightly comfortable, there were more food and snacks options than in other aircraft companies."
Cons: "Some of the crew were very rude, making a point to show you that they were hassled by serving you. I thought that was poor service. The seats weren't all working so while the passenger in front of me reclined, my seat wouldn't making for a very uncomfortable flight. I thought the entire aircraft needed either renovation or retirement altogether. Old TVs and non-functioning seats, all made me kind scared of where I was tbh."
Pros: "On time and uneventful"
Cons: "limited overhead space"
Cons: "Didn't get to travel. Will never fly Turkish Airlines again."
Pros: "Entertainment and crew were helpful"
Cons: "Food messed with my stomach."
Cons: "Turkish airlines should have accommodated the delayed flights by waiting for the passengers to make it to the gates especially if the delay was 3 minutes to catch the next flight. Then business transfer desk just gave the run around and finally rebooked me to Dubai instead of Abu Dhabi with a five hour delay"
Pros: "Stewards and stewardesses were friendly and very helpful."
Pros: "Everything good"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Airplane crew was amazingly friendly and helpful"
Pros: "Great service in the airplane plus they offer some amenities like slippers, tooth paste and toothbrush, they offer you wet towels to clean and refresh yourself during he flight. Really good."
Pros: "Excellent food Friendly staff who are willing to help"
Pros: "Friendly staff good food. Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Might just be a cultural thing but the boarding was a clusterfuck. Not really any order compared to flying out. Everyone just kind of lined up without any regard to the boarding groups."
Pros: "I was upgraded to first class. Awesome flight. Great food"
Cons: "Very small space"
Cons: "No entertainment at all"
Pros: "wonderful staff."
Cons: "there was a delay we were not told about, we left an hour late, but we're not told anything, this is problematic as you pass through a second round of security to sit by the gate and can't even go to the rest room with out repeating the check. the landing was very rough but no ones falt"
Cons: "The worst attitude. Travelled with baby and gave us seats separated and no basinet. Said don't care"
Pros: "Awesome service, comfy business cabin!"
Cons: "Boarding in Istanbul and Tel Aviv was chaotic, no business class boarding. Checking laptop in Istanbul was inconvenient. Lounge Istanbul was awesome however way too crowded to fully take advantage of it. Also should control people and what they takfor food. The lines were long and people would literally pile their plates with massive amounts of food, take it to their seat then leave it. Fix the lockers and add more, they are a wonderful asset but I was not able to take advantage of. Consider limiting access to manage crowds."
Pros: "Turkish airlines is a very friendly airline. They did a good job of making sure people were taken care of."
Cons: "I was traveling with a group and wasn't able to be seated with my group for any of my flights including a 12 hour transatlantic flight. For whatever reason, I couldn't actually check in for my flight and select seats prior to arriving at the airport. This happened with each ticket I purchased through every other agency except for orbitz.com. Not sure if that was a Turkish Airlines issue or a kayak.com issue, but it was very frustrating. When we arrived at the airport, we could no longer be seated together because everyone else had already checked in online and selected their seats for an overbooked flight. One of my group members was issued a standby ticket and almost didn't get on one of the flights that we paid a lot of money for. I would call this travel experience subpar, but I don't entirely blame Turkish Airlines for this."
Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"
Pros: "Boarding and crew"
Cons: "Food. The veg options were very bad."
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: "I was treated much like a first-class customer flying in coach. Food and beverage service as quite good. Turkish Airlines certainly beats any of the US airlines' on-board coach service by a long shot."
Cons: "I didn't like having to check my laptop at the gate. I wished they would have told me advance, as I was planing a lot of work on plane, and could not."
Cons: "You broke my suitcase"
Pros: "This was the return flight I skipped base on the horrible customer service I received on the first leg of the flight."

Pros: "Transit was okay."
Cons: "Food was not accommodated - no vegetarian food provided."

Pros: "It was a very comfortable flight. Check-in process was smooth, the airline company was sensitive to departure time. Highly recommended."
Pros: "Again, people were nice, food was good, and entertainment was still good."
Cons: "Boarding was unorganized"
Cons: "My bag was lot on my way to Europe and was delivered 3 days later. My claim for the expenses was not processed yet. My same bag was lost when I arrived to Abu Dhabi. It's been one week and I didn't hear about it"
Pros: "We left los angeles an hour late but was able to make the connection. Enjoyed the food and service. Fortunately the seat next to me was empty so I was able to spread out a bit and get some much needed sleep."
Pros: "Good food great passenger service."
Cons: "Having to take a bus to plane"
Pros: "There was a full meal served. Free blockbuster movie."
Cons: "Entwrtainment Audio was noisy"
Pros: "Flying crew very helpful extremely nice."
Cons: "They charge me $170.00 without telling me! Very upsetting . People who check us in not helpful at all ( especially managers)"
Cons: "All god nice flight crew helpful. A well organized flight just what you would expect from a German airline"
Cons: "Istanbul to frankfurt flight had no entertainment, no charging usb ports n a small ham sandwitch for breakfast - this was a 4 hour early mirning international flight!!!"
Pros: "Helpful crew Good food"
Cons: "Our luggage came back damaged and open !"
Cons: "Self-check-in at Munich was unnecessarily complex. Same for procedure to check in luggage. Also, the passport had to be inspected twice despite being already in the secure zone."
Cons: "Need longer transfer time in Frankfurt airport. They use buses to airplanes and that eats up time. Also, passport control line can be long. Fights to and fro gave us barely enough time and we were last ones to board"
Pros: "Flight departed on time. Crew were friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Boarding seem to be chaotic, no boarding by group or seat number."
Cons: "Will never use Lufthansa again"
Pros: "Bathrooms were clean"
Cons: "The entertainment was not functioning"
Pros: "Relatively fast flight"
Cons: "No entertainment or perks at all. And the worst thing was that before flight, they closed us in an insulated gate especially for flights to Tel Aviv, something made out of the 1980’s with a small kiosk with cold sandwiches and “espresso” from an automatic machine, if we knew this is the case, we at least would’ve bought something to eat before entering the 80’s terminal/gate."
Pros: "great over all experiance. Don't let the other negative reviews put you off"
Cons: "Frankfurt to Copenhagen was delayed and would have been to be told prior or compensated"
Pros: "Welcoming from the crew"
Cons: "Take off was very scared"
Cons: "The plane was expected to land at FRa an hour early Andy they couldn’t wait five minutes for us after a three hour delayed flight. Every other flight was delayed on average 30minutes. When we arrived whoever was running the jet bridge took 15 minutes to get it out to our jet, essentially causing us to miss our flight right then. And then the staff had the audacity to tell us we had to hike back ten minutes to wait in an hour long line to rebook. When they could have done it at their gate just as easily. Simply awful service For paying first/business class"
Pros: "Flight on time, good service, helpful staff. The plane wasn't too full and they invited us to find a better seat if we wished. There was a pretty long stretch of bad turbulence and the pilot talked to us to let us know what's going on and reassure us, which, as someone who freaks out in these situations, I really appreciate. There were a few good movies to choose from."
Pros: "food was above average drinks were provided often entertainment selection was great staff was well mannered and smiling"
Pros: "Crew, food"
Cons: "Delay caused by weather"
Pros: "Always have been more than pleased with Lufthansa. Perfect experience. Sincere thanks go to all staff."
Cons: "Nothing. All perfect."
Cons: "Tight space"
Pros: "5 Star: Comfort 4 Star: Crew 5 Star: Boarding 5 Star: Entertainment 5 Star: Food.. One of the best flights of 2017 by far. Premium Economy will deliver the basics of luxury comfort."
Pros: "The food was decent but poorly presented with very limited options for those with food allergies, particularly to dairy."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable and very stiff, neither the parents or staff made an effort to give guests a break from the constantly screaming babies. I had two small children kicking the back f my seat for the duration of our six and half hour flight. My largest complaint is that I was unable to sleep a wink on the overnight flight due to the excessive heat in the plane. In my experience decent airlines provide their guests with air conditioning so that they can breathe and rest easy. I was absolutely miserable thanks to the heat."
Pros: "Very professional and nice crew. Clean and new planes."
Cons: "Flights are never on time, seats are extremely small and planes are very often full. Not enough storage for carry on."
Cons: "Never made it and they knew several people were still in customs"
Pros: "The entertainment options were great, The plane was very clean and the bathrooms was HUGE!"
Cons: "uncomfortable seat, off set from the seat in front of me so my entertainment screen was at an odd angle to watch. Food was ok but they had a sauce on the chicken that was not very appetizing. It actually made my wife sick and lets just say she did not keep her dinner. Also, I asked for a scotch after take off and it was a small shot and after dinner I asked for another and it was just a whisper. It did not even cover one ice cube. It would have been nice to get at least a full shot."
Pros: "Crew members are very friendly."
Pros: "WiFi on long flight from Detroit to Frankfurt"
Cons: "The seat-back screens were very annoying and not very responsive."
Pros: "everything was good."
Cons: "It was no choices with meal because everybody took the chicken. Food can be better. Stuff can be more cheerful..."
Pros: "I think this airline is a very good airline, but this flight was shorter so it didn't have all of the perks of the longer ones that it usually has."
Cons: "In Lisbon we had to be bused out to the airplane to board, so it was a long process."
Pros: "Ease of boarding. Plenty of luggage space. Friendly and courteous crew"
Cons: "Last snack of ham and cheese was aweful"
Pros: "You always have the best looking flight attendants. After a year in Egypt it was refreshing to see something other than black haired woman. The food was great as always. Keep doing what youre doing. Thank you Olivia."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and we arrived on time, works for me!"
Cons: "Entertainment center was not working properly. Had to be rebooted twice."
Pros: "The entertainment touch screen system is so much easier to use than the planes that have the remote controls. Having all of the toilets downstairs was nice. It was less noisy and had a little space to stretch. The crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Even though I was sitting on the left side aisle seat (2-seat section), it was very cramped. I'm only 5'2" and my legs were very uncomfortable. Along with less leg room than other airlines, it felt like the seat itself was narrower too. The food quality control was disappointing. The meal I had on the first leg of my flight (Mumbai-Munich), I noticed that it expired by about 2 weeks. And the complimentary water bottles also had a past expiration date (although, I don't know how water expires). Generally speaking, I think all of the meals I ate on Lufthansa were subpar compared to the many Asian airlines I've used for overseas flights. Quality could be improved and I think there's a missed opportunity to incorporate meal options correlated to the airline or international destinations (German airline, why not bratwurst? Pretzel bread?)"
Pros: "Brand new Airbus 350 on the first transatlantic flight for Lufthansa was very nice"
Cons: "Long strory short. Flight overbooked, made US pay to ytake the next flight and send us home to another airport. WORSE EXPERIENCE WITH LUFTHANSA EVER!!!!"
Pros: "They know what they're doing!!"
Cons: "No complaints at all!"
Cons: "The seats recline too much! The passenger in front of me almost immediately reclined her chair right into my face, making an irritable experience on a long flight for me. That is the only flaw in your service in my experience."
Pros: "Everything about the service staff the plane amazing"
Pros: "The crew was very kind and made their beat efforts accommodate our requests or help us with the issues we experienced in our seats. I was also pleasantly surprised by the quality and taste of the food served during the flight."
Cons: "The entertainment system in my seat was not working. The crew was very helpful in terms of trying to fix the issue, but unfortunately the system was not fixed. The seats were difficult to push back. We tried several times to push back the seat for the passenger travelling with me, however the seat would not go as far as everyone else's. Unfortunately the flight was not as comfortable for her as it was for the rest of my party traveling with me. For such a large aircraft, Lufthansa should consider boarding economy by seat section. For example, starting with the persons who sit in the back first and then forward. It would speed up the boarding process and alleviate any lines in the aisles in the aircraft. Last but not least, my parties baggage was not transferred during our quick layover from Frankfurt to Krakow. Priority should be given to passengers whose final destination is not Frankfurt. We found out that our luggage's remained in Frankfurt when our names were called by baggage pickup in Krakow. The attendant who was helping us was very cold and treated us as of we were the ones who caused this inconvenience through his tone of voice, as well as his short comments. Lufthansa needs to work on their customer service in Krakow. We were rushed by the agent and it seemed like he wanted to get rid of us asap even though there was no line. We needed to understand where our baggage was and the options available to us, especially because our baggage was carrying important items for my sister in laws bacholerette party that night. We left not knowing when we were going to receive our luggage or if it would even make it to Krakow that night. We called the Number provided to us several times during the Day, however the line did not seem to be actively monitored by an individual. The website we were provided to track our luggage offered little to no insight on the whereabouts of our luggage. We finally found out that the luggage had arrived in Krakow and would be sent by carrier. The carrier arrived late in the evening, right before we were leaving for the bachelorette party thankfully. Better communication in these types of situations would greatly alleviate the stress one feels when their luggage is missing. Aldo surprised that the airline doesn't distribute a care package (I.e. toothbrush, paste, facewash) to passengers whose luggage was left behind."
Pros: "personal screen with option to start / pause and restart movie, good selection of movies but not the resent ones. Hot food, quick service. considered crew"
Cons: "no relaxing/ meditating music to ease sleeping only voice guided recordings, 3 hrs delay increased travel to 11 hrs 45 min"
Pros: "clean cabin"
Cons: "AC was broken, set on plane for an hour sweating terribly, had to stress to make connecting flight, barely made it. Movie selection did not appeal to me. Seat was super narrow and my seat did not recline fully, pure torture."
Pros: "I liked the in flight movies"
Cons: "Can't say there was anything I didn't."
Pros: "everything except the fact that no explanation was given why the plane was delayed by an hour and a half"
Cons: "Food was not very good for a few euros mote per passenger food could improve a lot"
Pros: "I love Lufthansa! It's my preferred carrier!"
Cons: "Due to delays on flight to Frankfurt, I missed this flight and was stuck in Frankfurt overnight. Waited over an hour for a shuttle to hotel; mediocre food and lousy room."
Cons: "This was a united flight. The personal was not helpful, only in helping me communicate with the airport in Rome to change my flight. I had to pay 97 euros for this change. I am upset and think it is not fair that I need to pay for a problem united had with their flight. I also think star Allience failed as they were not able to resolve the problem with their partner airlines."
Pros: "The comfort of the seats, though it could have slightly more leg room"
Cons: "Food was horrible"
Pros: "Very nice at check in and boarding when we arrived running from our other flight."
Cons: "All fine."
Pros: "Everything is great. The airplane, staff, and their terminal at the airport"
