Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The departure and arrival times were good in order to sleep the night, and wake up in Tokyo refreshed. Cabin crew were fairly friendly, but not the Cathay of a few years ago."
Cons: "NONE of the business class center seats would recline. This meant in order to recline and get some rest, the crew had to dismantle your seat and release the locks manually. This meant the seat was in that position until time to land. So I had to make a choice to sleep or eat, horrible for CX."
Cons: "The in flight entertainment is very old."
Cons: "Seating at the gate is strange. They just have people line up in any order and board them in that order. People run to form the line. Totally ridiculous. Food was awful. I have no idea what to even call the items they served. Audio jack was literally being held together with tape! Loose connection."
Cons: "The cabin was too hot the whole time. Especially for an international flight. The plane left late, which caused me to miss my connecting flight. I ended up on another Cathay flight and that was late as well."
Pros: "the flight was on time"
Cons: "the sound system on my seat was broken so I couldn't watch movies except"
Pros: "Good selection of movies and excellent inflight entertainment overall. Service was excellent."
Cons: "Seats were very small."
Pros: "Nothing I like"
Cons: "The seats assigned are so at the back at the aircraft. Even both of us are members of the airline we haven’t received any flight notification. That’s really bad"
Pros: "Was good but the food was bad"
Pros: "Very uneventful flights and that is a good thing. Friendly flight crew, good food served and on time."
Cons: "The aircraft from was showing some wear."
Pros: "Except for one time service everything else is good"
Cons: "Staff forgot what I have asked for boarding could have been done using zones."
Cons: "Delayed flights and food service suck"
Pros: "Upgraded seats"
Cons: "Same Some staff still needs training, sinplying saying no, is not acceptable, finding a solution and working towards a resuloution is more acceptable. Better verbiage used, checking on food count making sure EVERYONE gets what’s printed on the menu. Asking everyone equally on the same roll is the rule of thumb."
Pros: "The food was good."
Cons: "We were sitting at te back and it was very cold. Not sure why. They ran out of chicken for lunch."
Cons: "Gate change from 34 to 4 in hgk airport was too far."
Pros: "I liked the crew, the food, comfort. Everything made my travel experience great"
Pros: "My checked luggage bag was damaged. I noticed the damage only after I I reached home. However, when I reported Cathay Pacific baggage staff were very helpful and professional. I know several airlines who hide behind bureaucratic procedures to stonewall customers. CP is not one of them. Excellent service, before, after and during the flight."
Pros: "Hard to make such a long trip comfy in economy"
Cons: "Very attentive crew. I didnt go hungry or thirsty. Real friendly."
Pros: "Great customer service."
Pros: "Excellent and attentive staff, great food, clean bathrooms (by airline standards anyway), fantastic entertainment! It's a great value for the price, especially for coach class!"
Cons: "Not much to dislike. I just was a little bothered by the fact that I had purposely chosen to have my boarding pass be digital (to save the environment), but to do this you have to check in online. As a result, they can't verify your passport (something they need to do in person). So when I got to the gate they had to check my passport and then made me use a new, printed boarding pass. Not a huge deal, but just something that bothered me."
Cons: "I was pushed to a later flight with another company because the plane was overbooked."
Pros: "Great staff and food"
Cons: "Flight arrived from SFO 15 min late, and airline cancelled numerous connecting flights to various cities, including mine to Hanoi from Hong Kong. Offered to rebook 10hr later with 40 HK food credit. Happened to my uncle and cousins 1 month earlier on exact same legs. Would not recommend any layover with this airline in hong Kong for less than an hour. Numerous phone calls from me to sort this out, which resulted on another carrier to Hanoi."
Pros: "Fast and on time"
Pros: "Overall speaking CX flights quality has been declining over recent years"
Cons: "We opted for wheel chair but in Hong Kong we were nor given wheelchair and not informed about it to the passengers. They were not guided to the required flight destination in Hong Kong. When requested for some fruits during their flight they were not given any fruits or juice also."
Cons: "Would have liked to have been offered a beverage more often"
Pros: "The head staff making sure that me and my 4 year old are well taking care off. Super nice staff"
Cons: "The security staff and their approach and way of communicating"
Pros: "Need more movie selection on classic"
Pros: "The economy seats where comfortable even with a15 hours flight , food was great and warm.Crew were very helpful"
Cons: "flight took off 27 min late,sat in plane for over an hour waiting to go"
Pros: "Crew were nice."
Cons: "Very bumpy ride, and about a third of the entertainment touch screens did not work, including my sister's. Crew were helpful though throughout and gave us and others a $50 voucher for our trouble."
Cons: "Hindi movies not that many choices."
Cons: "International flight delayed after boarding the flight.Flight connection missed. Instead of providing the accommodation, passengers got boarded into flight to Los Angeles. Again another flight to Chicago which dropped the passengers in around midnight. Had to pick them from 4 hour distance from Chicago which was planned early. overall journey was more than 36 hours. No information to the passengers until last minute. Some passengers does know English."
Cons: "To the guy in 26G, it was incredible how you ignored three flight attendants when they asked you to put away your laptop. You were so obsessed with your own self interests that the general safety of your fellow passengers was not important. That must have been some email that you had to keep typing even as the plane was pulling away from the gate. So important in fact that you didn't touch your laptop for another two+ hours. But you did get it out again and proceeded to pull the same stunt as we descended. Stunning behaviour. I enjoyed how you convinced the crew to put your laptop in the overhead bin both times. I believe the clincher was the four carry on bags you had with you. Priceless. Guess you should be grateful you weren't on a US domestic flight. But I'm sure you would have turned the story away from you and on to the crew."
Pros: "Jenny (flight attendant in my section) was great. She was constantly smiling and was always positive. Her attitude made the flight more enjoyable."
Pros: "What a difference after getting off BA! Staff wonderful, always happy to help and always a smile. PE seats on new A350 are great, although too much cheap, hard plastic on seat back. Very comfortable with great pitch. Food exceptional and beautifully presented. Dim sum for breakfast was sensational. Pier Business class lounge breathtaking, with several large rooms with different food options, served to you - the fresh made noodles a must - and a staffed, well stocked bar. Absolutely gorgeous space."
Cons: "Surprised (and first time on Cathay I've seen this) toilet was revolting towards end of flight. Movie selection disappointing, as not many new releases and not all that many others."
Pros: "The food quality was great, and they had cup noodles available upon request throughout the whole flight, which was a nice touch. The staff was lovely and very helpful, there were endless entertainment options, and the seats were roomy."
Cons: "Flight was late by 4hrs No food was supplied they said food is over"
Cons: "Food was awful. Plenty of options but tasted cheap. Felt like flying on a budget airline"
Pros: "Love the icecream you provide."
Cons: "the food is no so good."
Pros: "Spacious seating, good food, excellent trip overall!"
Pros: "Price. Crew was very attentive and nice."
Cons: "Food was poor and only one out of three entree choices were available. That entree was pasta with cubed potatoes, with a side of cold potatoes in a vinegar sauce. Three starches! The economy seats are extremely uncomfortable for a 15 hour flight."
Pros: "The flight was on time, and my luggage made it through the connection."
Cons: "The audio on the TV didn't work, but otherwise, no problem."
Pros: "The crew did what they could to keep their moral up. Chinese airports are famous for always being late, and now I've experienced it. I don't think it was Cathay's fault. The layover arrangements in Hong Kong were handled brilliantly by the airport crew. Transportation was provided to the hotel, the hotel was the nicest I've stayed at in China and they weren't confused by everyone showing up (as often happens on layovers). The new boarding passes and cab voucher were provided cheerfully and everything was clearly explained by attentive people."
Cons: "There was a horrendous delay getting out of BJ. The captain was clearly distraught and very apologetic, bu what can you do when, after two 1-hr delay periods, traffic control says it may be as much as three hours more? The cabin crew were already clearly tired at the beginning of the event, and I'm sure it was all they could do to keep us all together."
Pros: "In flight entertainment was good."
Cons: "I chose Hindu meal and it was not good at all. They were giving the same super cold Salad at each meal service and no coffee or dessert was served with the meal either. Very disappointing."
Cons: "seat room small and uncomfy"
Pros: "Staff tried to book my aisle seat with empy middle seats, meals were very good"
Cons: "Seat space limited when passenger in front puts back their seatback Same breakfast choices offered on the arrival leg to HK as the departure"
Pros: "Great movies, excellent staff"
Cons: "Ran our it breakfast selection"
Pros: "Seat was ok."
Cons: "There was no food served at all! Just a plastic water container for the entire flight. Could’ve served a snack or two like JetBlue does in USA"
Pros: "Crew amazing, seats were comfortable."
Pros: "One on the plane, the flight was fantastic! Great service and food. Comfortable for a long-haul flight. Very modern aircraft with nice entertainment system. Overall great experience."
Cons: "Scheduling! We were 4 hours delayed after I had already had a flight cancelled that day. And this 4-hr delay caused me to miss my connection. Turkish did take good care of me in Istanbul, though it was a very slow process to get a hotel with them. Also, my bags missed the connection somehow."
Pros: "The crew and the food were amazing! The seats in Business Class were bery comfortable."
Cons: "Food and service"
Pros: "The flight from Dubai landed late in Istanbul. TK had someone there to escort the business class passengers through security to make sure we made our connection."
Cons: "The temperature on the flight to NY from IST was a bit too cold."
Cons: "I didn't fly, they opened counters late, closed the gate early didn't make an announcement."
Cons: "the boarding was delayed and i missed my connection flight and have to stay 8 hours for another flight."
Pros: "I did not use any entertainment so I cannot review it. Overall a most pleasant experience. Will highly recommend."
Cons: "The toilets and bathrooms in the Ataturk airport."
Cons: "Everything was good."
Cons: "The crew was not very warm and/or welcoming - they were short, impersonal, and kind of cold"
Pros: "The amazing entertainment system."
Cons: "The smell of feet, and nausea from turbulence after food (not really Turkish's fault). Also, I'm getting too used to the food by now, and it doesn't seem to change much."
Pros: "Efficient and clean with decent size seats but not to the standards of the MIddle eastern airlines. Good if compared to a intra-europe flight."
Cons: "Seats we’re tight and not what’s expected these days for a night flight over three hours Internationally."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the staff at the gate were nice."
Cons: "The crew for the first 9 hour flight was horrendous. They were quite unfriendly. I was in the dead middle of the plane, row 40, but we got our did last and there was no choice left. It was more like the crew forcing the food on us. The crew also was extremely bad about picking up after the meal. There were people walking around to throw away their food."
Cons: "Horrible seats, earphones hit or miss, cabin littered throughout, staff didn’t clean up from time to time, nor check that seats were up/belts fastened."
Pros: "Nothing jumped off the tracks. Every trip went exactly planned."
Cons: "thru Istanbul"
Pros: "There was ample leg room in economy. The food was good. Plenty to eat. Good selection of entertainment. Boarding was relatively good."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that my U.S. bound plane had to be boarded from the tarmac. I’m assuming it had something to with u.s. security issues with carriers from predominantly Muslim countries. The crew need to check passengers that want to place their feet anywhere except the floor or footrest. I see exactly how fights happen in the planes. It is not ok to place ones feet on someone else’s armrest."
Pros: "Spacious seating, even the last row reclines. Very good service. Free food and drink served throughout - including two warm meals."
Cons: "Boarding was organized but super time intensive. They group you together and then board in groups. Seems unnecessary. Can't they just boarding rows, like most airlines?"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "I forgot to choose special meal request but they have good vegeterian food options"
Pros: "Crew,boarding,comfort,entertainment and food."
Cons: "I was happy with everything"
Pros: "the flight was comfortable and the crew as very warm"
Cons: "since i had a connecting flight and in changing timezones i as served breakfast in both flights in a duration of 12 hours. the food was also not according to my taste buds."
Pros: "Food was fine"
Cons: "Plane left late."
Pros: "Was surprised to get a full meal on such a short flight. Very good food."
Cons: "Pretty average flying experience. The plane looked older, but that's nothing unusual"
Cons: "More than 90 min delay in the flight from NYC to Istanbul. Caused us to get late to the next flight. The replacement we got was after more than 6 waiting hours although earlier flights took off to the same destinatiob."
Pros: "I love everything about this airline. I'm a fanboy of Turkish airlines every time. Great in cabin entertainment, great service, always awesome aircrafts."
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."
Pros: "Complimentary travel kit was a life saver."
Cons: "Staff is mean, impolite, and inefficient."
Pros: "Turkish Airlines I usually pretty good (I fly them a lot), the boarding was fine and the crew OK (as usual they are pretty short in English)"
Cons: "Food was really not very good. Pasta was undercooked and barely warm. Entertainment was pretty mediocre with old films, very limited selection and no control (just channels). Last but not least Turkish needs to update their policies on electronics, I was reading a kindle on Airplane mode, but was forced to turn it off. This is over the top and no longer required on many airlines. Time to modernize attitudes here."
Pros: "the crew so courteous and very pleasant"
Cons: "kosher food just ok"
Pros: "Food, service, toiletries, entertainment"
Cons: "Airlines cancelled flights out of Rome and made several changes to our return flight which caused us to stay 22 hrs long layover in Istanbul. We had to make several long phone calls to ensure we can get the connecting flight from istanBill to San Francisco."
Pros: "The food was good, the crew was very professional and friendly."
Cons: "The seats are too crammed and there's barely any room in the economy class."
Cons: "Delay in receiving luggage ,"
Pros: "The food was good, the drinks were great, the stewardesses were professional and helpful and the entertainment system was really good, lots of movies. We got there safe and on time...what more do you need? Oh, and the price for my route was amazing; the next airline was $1000 more and the one after that $2000 more."
Pros: "You were fed."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
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: "This was our first time with Turkish Airlines. I love that an inexpensive flight gave such wonderful service. My favorite thing is that they treat children well. We will definitely use again."
Pros: "Spacious, nice, friendly, I didn't eat the food because I have dietary restrictions but it looked good."
Pros: "Nice new plane, decent food, friendly staff, incredible selection of movies. Appreciated the fact that the cabin wasn't freezing for once."
Cons: "Terrible, slow checkin process. Some people treated the checkin counter as their personal therapist, coffee house, I don't know what.., they held up the line for ages and staff was doing nothing to speed them up and move them along."
Pros: "Large set of movie choices to pick from."
Cons: "Disappointed that I couldn't choose my meal options - was given a menu that said you could pick between more than one meal. But every single time the food cart arrived (6 total among 4 flights), was told there was no options."
Pros: "The comfort level was good. I liked the meal in economy and I was able to watch a new movie."
Cons: "The flight left late from Marseille, further diminishing the 4.5 hours I had to catch a flight on another carrier. The flight circled the destination and was then diverted to the second Istanbul airport, where we refueled and waited for another hour. People from the back of the plane rushed to the front of the plane while we were still taxiing on the runway at Ataturk, all to get to the front of the line. The crew was passive the entire time. Upon exiting we were herded onto busses (thus taking away the supposed advantage of those rushing the front). When finally in the terminal, I had to go through customs, purchasing a visa (for a country I did not want to visit at the time), and reclaim checked bags. I proceeded to the other carrier's counter, to be informed that the gate for my flight onward was closed. As the ticket was "promotional" I lost that ticket and had to purchase another - on Turkish! Also had to spend a night in a Turkish hotel, also on my dime."
Pros: "Crew is amazing, as always"
Cons: "Allergic needs were not met"
Pros: "I got such an amazing deal on this flight that I could barely believe how incredible my experience was. Will DEFINITELY fly Turkish Airlines again!!"
Cons: "No problems at all"
Pros: "I have traveled a lot during my life. The flight crew on this flight was the best I have ever seen."
Pros: "The movie selection was great. Flight times were right on track. No unnecessary delays. Food was good too."
Cons: "The incredibly long layover. 9+ hours. We were all cramped in this incredibly small space like sardines. Please don't decrease seat space more! Very uncomfortable seats. I could not get my seat to recline at all. Service was very slow. Especially clean-up of food trays."
Pros: "Almost every thing was good. The plane and seats were good. The movie selections were good. The crews were v good."
Cons: "Flight was delay and we are waiting in plane food was not enough good, no menu was provided, the plane was dirty..."
Cons: "They let passengers on who were not supposed to be on the flight. Consequestnly the flight way massivle delayed as they were trying to sort out the mess with the numbers, wrong passengers. they deboarded one passenger and asked everyone to search their overheaed baggages for foreign things. caused a scare among the passengers but wast fully explained. boarding was very sketchy and felt unsafe, unsecure."
Pros: "I missed my flight."
Cons: "Helped me get a different flight. I got zero help getting another flight. Or any credit."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "The aisle between seats are too small. The carts and people can barely make it through. Aisle passengers always get bumped making it a long flight."
Pros: "They hand out wine like it's candy"
Cons: "Also, they hand out wine like it's candy - be careful!"
Pros: "Comfy seats in United Polaris"
Cons: "Crew didn’t ask enough for additional drinks (neither alcoholic nor water)."
Pros: "Cabin crew were great."
Cons: "Was almost impossible to make this connection. Honestly I probably should’ve been moved to yet another later flight. Ground crew said my bag had made it on board, so i waited and waited but it never showed up in Kraków. Lost luggage team was helpful and told me it didn’t make the flight - it was on the next one. Hopefully it gets delivered soon but it will be difficult bc my air bnb has no buzzer"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Liked that you can see how far away and how much longer the flight was."
Cons: "Flights to be more on time"
Pros: "good crew ok food for airline"
Cons: "despite an outrageous price we had problems registering our luggage economy light never heard of it"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable"
Cons: "The food could be better"
Pros: "The service from the flight attendants was wonderful."
Cons: "The seats are horrible without any lumbar support nor sufficient cushion for the seat. It leaves you sore all over. If the person in front lays back, they will be hitting your knees. The food for dinner was ok but the breakfast was horrible. Plain eggs with inedible spinach and tomatoes."
Pros: "Seating was good"
Cons: "Got a seat in the middle - was pretty annoyed with this."
Pros: "Everything, I love Lufthansa"
Pros: "Nice crew comfortable seats selection of drinks were good"
Cons: "Better blankets too cold on the plane"
Cons: "Just deaiappointed"
Pros: "Food and boarding process"
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: "The flight was smooth. The timing of the flight arrival and immigration was perfect. More than enough time to clear that process. The airline crew on board was professional and pleasaht"
Cons: "The seating was very close. Not enough room to sleep comfortably."
Pros: "Everything was fine, the crew was excellent. We liked that Lufthansa did provide the special meals (that we requested on-line) for our family."
Cons: "The boarding was rather slow (but not extremely so). Calling boarding by row ranges, like some other airlines do, may speed it up or make it more comfortable. The seats were not too comfortable, but within what one can expect for an Economy class --- and not too bad, either."
Cons: "There was hardly any communication about the delay."
Pros: "Everything except that cookie!"
Cons: "I liked everything except the cookie. It reminded me of the low quality supermarket American cookies, way too sweet and flavorless. They used to give little sandwiches, excellent in quality!!! A cookie is good too, but a better one would do a great difference! It was early morning, who would eat a sugary chocolate chip cookie for breakfast? But otherwise, I would fly with Lufthansa again in a heartbeat!!! Thank you!!!!!!"
Pros: "Clean(though toilets still had a little bit of smell, better than Delta and United anyway... The food was surprisingly good, way better than United and Delta! The staff is very professional. The chairs are better than what I experienced with other airlines."
Cons: "On this flight only, the toilets had a slite smell. Usually German bathrooms are an example for the rest of the world to follow in cleanliness."
Pros: "The plane was very good , the hospitality was very good b"
Cons: "Every thing in Lufthansa was horrible"
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. Waiting for long time in a crowded bus to NORAD the plane then rushing out of the bus to Nita the plane with no lines and having to wait for the crowds outside the lane in a freezing temperature. Furthermore, there was no entertainment on the plane and the food was horrible. Add to this the very cramped seat space and no carry ons in the plane (unless you speak German)"
Pros: "On time flight with no problems"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats so hard to sleep during flight"
Cons: "Leg space"
Pros: "Where is my bag"
Cons: "Where is my bag"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled."
Pros: "Kayak had good e emails with updates and reminders. Lufthansa was a great suorline for its care of its passengers."
Pros: "Great service across the board! Wonderful, experienced staff!"
Cons: "Seat space was inadequate. My shoulders are 4 inches wider than the seat space including both shared arm rests."
Cons: "Once off international flight in Dusseldorf, had to go through passport check prior to transfer onto second flight... One passport check person in line for almost 200 people... We did make our flight, however very stressful for no reason. Lufthansa was amazing, Euro-wings folks... very unhelpful..."
Pros: "Flight was late landing then delayed on the ground at EWR"
Cons: "24 hr delay. I was supposed to fly Lufthansa and had to deal with idiots from United from Jacksonville to IAD."
Pros: "The aircraft for one - their new 747-8l. Spacious and quiet. Loved the ambience. The food was absolutely fantastic Indian food. Service professional and courteous. I would plonk money to travel LH business class for sure."
Pros: "Boarding staff was cooperative On time departures and arrivals"
Cons: "Crew in Lufthansa are racist. Don't want to elaborate here but trust me for this. Bad quality food. They don't even have sufficient food for everyone. I didn't get two meals on one flight. Loo's are not maintained. Crew too rude. Had called a flight attendant for service but didn't show up until an hour (exactly an hour). Later I had to get up and take it. Can write an essay on my whole journey."
Pros: "Price was right. Aircraft was clean & maintained to high level. On time departure and arrival."
Pros: "Flight attendants pretty good. Got lucky with one of the only 2-seater rows in the back of the plane. Good entertainment options."
Cons: "I'm only 5'2" (157cm) and slim but could barely move in my seat, and if the person in front leaned seat back, it was terrible. Food was lame, really salty and they did not come around with water enough."
Cons: "Pay for Wi fi"
Cons: "Flight was canceled with no prior notice and I am requesting a refund."
Pros: "Everything on the plane seems clean and well maintained - nothing is broken, worn or soiled. Lufthansa spends a little more effort than other airlines to cut down on waste when it comes to their in-flight food service (real silverware and reuseable dishes). The Munich airport is by far more convenient than Frankfurt when making connections in Germany."
Cons: "I was a bit disappointed with the limited seat availability/choices. If you cannot check in online several hours ahead of the departure you are typically left with center/middle seats in the area of the plane."
Pros: "Service and entertainment were great. The food was somewhat better than most airlines with free beer and wine."
Cons: "The flight was delayed on departure by 8 hours. This caused us to cancel and rearrange hotels. The flight back had to make an emergency medical stop for 2 hours but this was not the fault of the airline and is understandable.."
Pros: "Great crews, great amenities, good food. Best flights I've been on in a long time."
Cons: "obvious crew disapproval when walking up and down the aisles to keep lively one year old entertained and from crying!"
Cons: "I never took this flight."
Pros: "In some airlines, you experience a different standard from Europe to America, compared to standard from Africa. Luftansa did not compromise quality. The partner maintained the same. The booking from Kayak was excellent . The travel was seamless."
Pros: "Great food and entertainment options."
Cons: "Very slow boarding process. A lot of the boarding crew just standing around waiting instead of moving the passengers thru to board. A half hour delay ensured due to the slow boarding process. Seemed to have no clue how to board efficiently. Seats a little cramped in economy. Passenger who was disabled - could not stand on his own - was seated in an aisle seat and passengers had to climb over him to get in and out the entire flight. Should have been seated in a different seat since he never stood up."
Pros: "Very attentive flight attendants -- esp. liked the frequent offerings of juice and water; wine with meal was also appreciated. I will fly Lufthansa again!"
Cons: "For evening flight from DC to Frankfurt, I would have liked meal served a bit earlier so that we could have longer opportunity to nap before arrival."
Pros: "Food was good. Bathrooms clean during flight. Staff was overall pleasant."
Cons: "Video entertainment menu system was slow to work with."
Pros: "The entertainment was good on board"
Cons: "The cabin crew was a bit rude"
Cons: "Lufthansa canceled my flight and we were rebooked onto a 7 am flight out of Naples."
Cons: "Staff seen to not like people of color black"
Pros: "Comfortable and on time. Food was pretty good. Customer service was great."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable as I had the exit row"
Cons: "Flight was late by an hour taking off from DXB."
Cons: "Extra rules about headphones are annoying and no beverage options. Horrible terminal that does not let you get a drink before boarding and gate agent did not update boarding when it was late, so no one could venture off and get a drink of water before flight."
Pros: "Consistent experience that gets you from A to B while providing nice perks (free stame-day standby on the old Rapidair routes)."
Pros: "We didn’t crash."
Cons: "We continue not to crash."
Pros: "I sat in a seat that wasn’t my assigned seat, and no one said anything. It was awesome!"
Pros: "Service counter staff was helpful to confirm seating although I did not like being put on standby. This happens too often with Air Canada."
Cons: "Stop the overbooking!!!!!"
Cons: "Not enough movie options"
Cons: "The crew was grumpy and unhelpful."
Cons: "See above - seats worn out, entertainment worn out, Crew battling old tired aircraft. Massively overpriced. Bring on WestJet direct to Ottawa."
Cons: "Late. Wifi on the aircraft but didn’t work. Inflation GHY service suspended due to reported turbulence."
Cons: "By the time the food cart got to the rear of the plane their was none of the good entrees left for my family including my to young boys who had already licked out what they wanted, but got nothing they liked."
Pros: "Food served was excellent"
Cons: "The TV screens are very dark and hard to see"
Cons: "Seats were cramped and toilet was wet and stinky"
Pros: "The seat beside me was vacant, so I had extra room."
Cons: "Flights in the late evening from Toronto to Ottawa always seem to be delayed. We spent a lot of time boarding, and a lot of time de-icing before take off. There would have been plenty of time to serve refreshments during de-icing. But refreshments and dismemberment of ear phones only began once the plane was airborne. There was not enough time to service all the passengers at that point. I'm not sure why Air Canada cannot at least give you ear phones when boarding. And why cannot refreshments be served during de-icing?"
Pros: "Air Canada is fantastic. Will never use air india."
Cons: "I liked everything about AirCanada and nothing about Airindia."
Cons: "Air Canada is just worse and worse"

Cons: "The fact i haven't boarded yet."
Pros: "Pretty routine"
Cons: "Long delay, but weather dictated this."
Cons: "Seats are always too close to the ones in front , crushing knees."
Pros: "Air Canada you suck. Told us that our flight wouldn't leave before we boarded as the computer system was down country wide. We still stood in like for an hour and hey could have manually checked us in as they did others. We were promised no planes would leave and when we got to the gate our plane was pulling away leaving 10 of us to scramble to find another flight. Customer service argued with me saying no flights were going to Ottawa and my Kayak app told me otherwise. Thanks for making my flight home for a funeral that much more stressful and having my family wait 4 hours risking all of our lives with freezing rain drive home."
Cons: "too hot in cabin missing brewage onboard"
Cons: "The crew didn't finish the inflight service so a bunch of us didn't get drinks or snacks. This was all the more frustrating when the flight then circled Ottawa for 20 minutes before landing."
Pros: "I think cost me without needing to go back and forth"
Pros: "Pathetic delay time that was not weather related, they should have had another plane. I will not say that I will never fly Air Canada again just because departure time may leave me no choice but given a choice that suits my travel schedule it will not be them."

Pros: "Airbus 380"
Pros: "Same as anove"
Pros: "Service was poor. Attitude was less than enthusiastic."
Cons: "Cancelling flights , lying about reasons why, running away from customers when the flight finally after 10 hours was canceled"
Cons: "In order to make more money, Air Canada purposefully sits couples, families etc. who book together separately, in order to try to get them to buy upgraded seats together."
Pros: "It was great"

A United Airlines check-in agent told me that the baggage agents don’t work for the airline therefore didn’t know what to do. These people need add training."
Pros: "Flight was ok the first flight from Btv to IAd was not great the plane made a lot of noise during takeoff and landing sounded like the ceiling panels were going too fall off as well as other noises"
Cons: "Lots of noises crew were good . Price of luggage was outrageous"
Cons: "Brussels Airlines flight was operated by United Airlines. United Airlines lied and charged us $120 when out should have been free for luggage. United Airlines are a bunch of rapists. United airlines screws people. Do not fly United Airlines. I called United Airlines to verify baggage policy before i flew and they said follow brussels Airlines bag policy. Liers. United airlines is the worst Airlines ever...DO NOT FLY UNITED AIRLINES."

Pros: "Timely departure"
Cons: "Annoying screaming 4 year old with his mom’s inability to control him. They sat in front of us. From Houston to Baton Rouge - attendant was too slow. Couldn’t get a cup of water to anyone except I am assume first class passengers. No notice. No apology. Disappointing!"
Pros: "I made it home alive"
Cons: "Well constancy gate changes in the airport to getting on a hot plane with no air going, then to waiting an hour for the plane to start because of the power cable (still with no air) crew didn’t give us any update from the very first one, all of a sudden we are moving, but only shortly because then we waited another 30 minutes to actually take off. Once in the air it took forever to get water, just pretzels for snacks and a horrible attitude by the staff. DO NOT DLY WITH THEM."

Pros: "Crew on the plane was awesome. There was so much food coming through if you were starving that solved the problem. Entertaininment was great."

Pros: "Flight crew was excellent and went over and above to help us"
Cons: "We were told due to the delay that CSR ‘s would help us with making our flights. Upon arrival no csr. Plane was still at terminal. Had to make 2 calls to a supervisor before csr’s Would do their job and get us boarded. Finally they came to their senses."

When asked they told me there was a misunderstanding. on our way to El Salvador. Due to weather we had to stop at guatemla a lot of people were ready to walk around since a 3 hour flight became a 6 just sitting around a attendant was very disrespectful towards an older lady told her to get out her way and moved her to the side. Me and another gentleman look at eachother and couldn't believe it"
Pros: "Nice airport, but terrible organization"
Cons: "We were directed upstairs when entering the airport, then directed downstairs for a so called faster security location. That line was long, so we were directed to a shorter security TSA pre check by a person who took us back upstairs to a 3rd location that was not signed or marked to be a security check area at all. It said employees. This is a disorganized airport."
Pros: "I always like the multiple entertainment options with the seat back screens. The dinner meal was much better than I expect in coach."
Pros: "Nothing whatsoever"
Cons: "The personnel was very rude. They charged me for my Service Dog which is illegal. Personnel yelled at me for having my service dog with me in the seat. They changed our seats, even though we picked them when buying them for a reason and my boyfriend and I ended up sitting in different lanes. Horrible experience. Landing and take off of the plane felt horrible. They double charged for one service dog. Even though I provided the Dr's note and her service dog tag."

I had the worst experience with this airline... it was my first time traveling with u guys and it was so terrible that I would never travel again with u guys.... I flew first class going to my destination but coming back was the WORST"
Cons: "Super delayed. 4 hours plus for a less than 2 hour flight. Unacceptable. Arrival at 3:15 am vs 11 pm."
Pros: "The flight was great. The seat was comfortable, the staff was funny and kind."
Cons: "You need more sparkling water on the flights, LaCroix. Or Dasani, so many people no longer drink diet soda for healthier options, more sparkling beverages would be wonderful."

Pros: "Eazy flight"
Pros: "The flight was great and crew was awesome!"
Cons: "There was no working wifi, which was a bit of a bummer. But certainly not the end of the world!"
Cons: "Both flights were INCREDIBLY delayed. First, the flight from San Jose was delayed 1.5 hours because they were "waiting for the aircraft." After everybody finally boarded the plane an announcement was made that somehow the luggage crew had damaged the cargo hold, and that everybody would have to deplane. It would take 45 minutes for maintenance crew to arrive to assess the situation. People got up, got their luggage out of the overhead bins, and started moving to the front of the plane. The pilot then came back on the intercom and told everyone they would have to return to their seats. Roughly an hour later we finally took off. It would have been the decent thing to do to AT LEAST offer the passengers something (i.e. comp drinks or snacks), but the cheapskates at United DIDN'T EVEN APOLOGIZE. Multiple people missed their connections. Fast forward to IAH--> SAT. Another late flight. This time, everybody boarded the plane only to be informed that due to a problem with the plane's computer everybody would have to sit on the plane while they "rebooted" its computers. This was done TWICE. UNITED AIRLINES, GET IT TOGETHER. There is a very good reason you are consistently ranked one of the WORST US-flagged carriers, which makes you one of the MOST HATED AIRLINES ON THE PLANET. I really and truly pray that the US airlines and their lobbyists lose their battle to prevent foreign flagged carriers from operating within the US, because you all deserve to go bankrupt."
Pros: "I cancelled that flight... Hope my refund is coming soon"
Pros: "crew was mostly friendly"

Pros: "Very smooth and comfortable flight."
Cons: "Entertainment Did not work properly."

Cons: "It was the first flight that made me sick to my stomach with all the ups and downs the pilot was doing. I felt horrible"
Cons: "Everything. I had a very tight schedule to visit my friends in canada. What was supposed to be a quick flight turned into almost 24 hours of travel and ariving 12 hours late. I was lucky to have 3 days in with my friends now i only have 2. Not to mention what was supposed to be an inexpensive trip turned i to an expensive one when you are forced to eat airport food after being constantly re routed. I bought my ticket based on ariving to ottawa in the morning this however was not the case. I will be seeking a refund."
Pros: "The plane was very clean, modern, and it just felt safe. The crew is excellent, and the flight took less than three hours."
Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour. Boarding was a bit of a problem, there was a miscommunication of who boarded first and who would board next so the boarding process was a bit delayed and disorganized. No entertainment was offered."
Cons: "the older plane. not as much personal space per seat"
Pros: "Nothing! Rude people, rude service, smaller plane size, crappy food with a smell!"
Cons: "Everything! Rude people, rude service, smaller plane size, crappy food with a smell! Attendant even went as far as saying "This is why I prefer working with first class" to his co worker, making reference about a passenger. And even went as far as saying "I really need a drink after this one" when the passenger overhead his first comment and asked him why he's being so rude to her family and no one else. Also didn't bring us or the passenger behind us any water when we asked, and when asked again, he rudely said "You will have to wait, can't you see I only have two hands. I haven't gotten to your row yet" which he had, and passed, which is why the man behind us mumbled to us, and we made a request too."
