Pros: "the best flight ever taken...fantastic airlines, crew, service, food, movies!"

Pros: "Entertainment system is something you cannot exhaust during the flight. Hundreds of movies and TV series to pick from."
Cons: "The chair was BROKEN. There was a section of it that was protruding and hurting me in the back. Only thing crew offered was extra blankets to put behind my back. They quickly run out of any food options and were only offering one of them (the worst one, of course). The beverage cart took the tour way less frequently than on other airlines, effectively leaving you thirsty (wouldn't even go around offering water) or having to make your own trips to the galley."

Head bursar was very apologetic and sympathetic about the whole issue. Enjoyed my flight, again on Qatar!"
Pros: "The flight from Doha to Beirut was not fully booked, we could move easily."
Cons: "I have requested seafood for my meals. Unfortunately I was told that no such request was mentioned on the list as special meal. Overall the food was okay, we had 2 small pieces of beef in one meal, the two salads has no taste and the sandwich was too salty. A passenger who sat next to my husband snored all the time and leaned a bit over my husband as he was heavy."

Pros: "Food was great Seats were comfortable Everyone was super nice"
Pros: "everything went smoothly, no delays, boarding was easy and quick"

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: "Everything else"
Cons: "Too much air condition... cold!!"
Pros: "Comfort and Cleaniness."
Cons: "Food and ways to provide chairs - avoiding providing wheel chairs and food requirement."
Cons: "horrible customer service at the airport. very unaccommodating."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic!! They saved this rating."
Cons: "Old plane. No power outlet, no wifi, entertainment system was glitchy... if it was not for the crew, this would have been the poorest u could get. Doha security and transfer were unruly, long, and a mess. Terrible experience there. Nearly missed connection. Dreading going through there on return flight"
Cons: "We didnt travel on qatar airlines we travelled on airlines from chilie but the staff from qatar airlines"
Pros: "The food on foreign airlines is so much better than on american airlines (they even offer something in economy class on short local flights)."
Cons: "The seat spacing on the 70-minute flisght was a little cramped - it would be even worse for a taller person than I (at 5'10")."
Pros: "Everything was good ... we were on time .. no delay so .. perfect !"
Pros: "I was the third person in the line. The ticket agent couldn't find my ticket as multiple tickets were booked on my name and all tickets showed X mark. After 20-30 minutes of wait, I finally got my ticket but the security and custom lines were very long by that time. Never flying Qatar again."
Pros: "Seat and space"
Cons: "Food was pathetic."
Pros: "For the most part it really was a most excellent flight, especially the Dubai to SF leg where there were SO MANY CHILDREN around [should get a free upgrade just for surviving that] but the flight crew did exceptionally well and remained calm all the way through. Apart from one grumpyish woman on the second flight the majority of crew were exceptional and really went out of their way to serve and help."
Cons: "I slashed my finger fairly painfully on a toilet door while pushing it from the outside to open it on the Dubai to Cape Town flight [again, an upgrade on my home flight which is a bucket list dream would more than make up for that!] which i pointed out to a flight attendant and they took note of it and bandaged me up so it was dealt with well but hopefully that gets sorted out [she said she would write a report] cos it did unfortunately affect the rest of my flight a little... And so many crying babies [thankful for volume control on headphones] but literally that was it - love flying Emirates cos on the whole felt super well treated..."
Cons: "Airport helpers at both airport are not dealing properly. Newark wheelchair employees were demanding for big money as tips. Why money is charged to use trolley to move luggage????"
Cons: "Main problems at Dubai airport. Employee at the airport charged me money for the same luggage that Newark employees said it is according to air line rules. That shocked me. I didn’t buy anything from Dubai. I think it’s not right."
Pros: "10 out of 10. excellent. 5 stars."
Pros: "It was my first time flying again in ten years and my first time with emirates. I was expecting excellent standards and I´m very pleased to say I was not disappointed!"

Pros: "Cabin crew were efficient"
Cons: "Open check in counters on time as scheduled. They were half hour late at least"
Pros: "We have been flying Swiss for years and they are the most reliable and best organized airline, we have ever experienced."
Cons: "I didn't notice that I had booked some sort of new economy light category where checked baggage is no longer included and to check baggage when booked into this class cost $60 per bag per flight. So overall on the trip I paid $240 extra for luggage alone."
Cons: "Swiss Air allowed us to book a flight with 45 minutes to connect. First flight came in a few mixtures late, but then we had to wait our long turn to deplane, get on bus and wait for it to fill up with all slower passengers, drive to terminal, make it through passport control, take train to other terminal, and run 20 gates down where they were looking for us. We made it with 1 minute to spare from takeoff. They knew our bags were connecting and they made it. If they could've expedited our passage with a club car it would have been excellent."
Cons: "Food was horribly salty. I got the middle seat between 2 men. One of the attendant s was taunting most of the people who asked him for anything."
Pros: "Missed this flight because the first one was late"
Pros: "We did not get on any flight to NY!!!!"
Pros: "The gate agents, crew, and food."
Cons: "Entertainment monitor kept stopping, then going, fast forward, then fast reverse. Watched a 1 hour 10 minute movie that took 2 hours 40 minutes to view. I am over 200 cm in height, the passenger in front of me was 163 cm with seat all the way back while sitting on the edge of her seat playing games. The monitor I was watching was about 14 cm from my face. I never put my seat back, but I sure as hell will now. This flight was over seven hours, that is to long to be contorted."
Pros: "Good breakfast"
Cons: "Bad seat, just an economy seat"
Pros: "Great crew and flight."
Cons: "Boarding procedure was rather chaotic. After first class, rather than board by groups or rows, it was everyone else. Flights are fully booked and overhead bin space is tight if you board at end."
Pros: "Arrived safe"
Cons: "Packed in like sardines on an overnight flight. Awful food. Cheap fair seemed like a bargain until you find out that you have to pay an extra charge for the dubious privilege of reserving a seat way back in the 34th row."
Pros: "Not sure why airline companies buy planes where the seat in front recline to the lap of the costumer behind where it makes a 9 hr flight miserable"
Pros: "Clean, modern plane, friendly and attentive crew"
Cons: "Cramped space in economy!"
Pros: "Nice crew, nice plane"
Cons: "Late arrival at Dubai, late departure and late at final destination...No information given to passangers!"
Cons: "Not on time at all. Toooooo late boarding"
Pros: "Swiss Air is very nice, planes are clean, snacks on board were fantastic!"
Cons: "Why the ridiculous amount of money to check a small bag? For this reason, I would not fly Swiss Air. My fancy sandwich was not worth CHF 50."
Cons: "All was great"
Pros: "Swiss took care of your mistake, booked on subsequent flight."
Cons: "No idea a you never actually delivered a ticket. Flight over sold, Swiss had no record of the booking. KAYAK screwed up."
Pros: "Professional crew"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "They lost my bag for 6 days. It was an absolute horrible experience. There was a disconnect between their outsourced baggage tracer company and Swiss. Will NEVER fly again."
Pros: "The way of treatment"
Cons: "The landing was terrible"
Pros: "The Israeli crew on El Al were very polite and tried to help."
Cons: "When we arrived to Swiss desk, after checking in at home including choosing seats, we were sent to El Al desk and had to start everything from the start. We couldn't even choose seats . It was a great disappointment. We don't think we fly in Swiss again"
Pros: "The staff was just fabulous! Very nice and sincere. Beautiful smiles. I admired the lipstick on one and she came back and had the name of it written down for me. MAC here I come."
Pros: "Everything!! This airline is a huge breath of fresh (old?) air. It reminded me of how air travel used to be. No baggage charge - we only checked one bag. There was plenty of great food and drink - alcoholic drinks were free. We will definitely look to use SwissAir whenever possible."
Cons: "No announcement regarding delay. No boarding announcement. Very uncomfortable, older business seats. Actually had a sore back after the flight. Couldn't get comfortable. Travelling companion had the same experience. Small screen."
Pros: "Crew, food...."
Cons: "As I said before..."
Pros: "Liked the crew, seats, snack. Definitely a pleasant experience."
Cons: "I would have like an announcement to let me know what times food will be served. I woke up just as the crew had passed my row for breakfast and then couldn't get the attention of the lady to serve me breakfast. A vegan option for the menu would be excellent. The leg room on the plane was also very reduced for an 11 hour flight. I wish I would have been offered to pay an additional amount and upgrade to the business class. This option was never offered to me at check-in."
Cons: "Airline lost my flight, no explanation and or apology. Seats were terrible could not move when seat in front was reclined. No economy plus, no reciprocal consideration for gold status on star alliance except for one checked bag free. I will never fly Swiss again"
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours late. This is my second experience in a week with Swiss flights being 2-4 hours behind."
Pros: "Great experience. GOod comfortable flight, crew and overall services"
Cons: "I wish there were more bollywood albums and more bollywood movies...to choose from"
Pros: "Comfort of the flight ,very friendly staff"
Cons: "The flight crew was horrible. The desk crew inept. A wheelchair was requested but not there on checkin. Pre boarding did not happen as was supposed to. Older person male at desk was rude, insulting and sarcastic. This did not happen on Boston end. The person was there with wheelchair at the Boston gate and assisted us. Not in Zurich. What about handicap travel? Swiss????"
Pros: "Crew was sympathetic to the awful seats"
Cons: "Just fly had access to the worst seats and we could not change them."
Pros: "Crew was great. Very helpful because I needed assistance due to back injury."
Cons: "Food was not very good."
Cons: "I could notice The crew was really attentive and took good Care of passengers Who speak german or were from Swizertland, meanwhile with The rest of The passengers they were not really nice at all."
Pros: "The crew was lovely."
Cons: "The seats were very cramped."
Pros: "Nothing notable"
Cons: "The crew was quite rude for the duration of the trip and too busy to help. The plane was very old and seats poorly padded- like sitting on stone. Most televisions in our section malfunctioned or didn't work at all. Staff did little to help. Unlikely we would travel on this airline again."
Pros: "People were friendly."
Cons: "Boarding was little confusing"
Pros: "Service, slot"
Cons: "Distance to gate"
Pros: "The food was really good. The selection of TV shows and movies were nice, and kept me entertained the whole flight."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing. The same questions were asked 3 times, I couldn't tell if that was security protocol or just glitch in their process. Seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, quick boarding, great crew, good pilots."
Cons: "My laggadge was left behind in Zurich (with my medication). Given age of electronics how hard it to make sure that everything is loaded? Not hard at all. They located Laggage at 12:30, but took them 7 hour to ship to Barcelona, so it arrived at 7:30 pm to Barcelona airoport. And they only delivered next day. Not cool. Advice: read laggage tags to reading device during loading and compare with transit customers flight database."
Pros: "The chairs were actually more comfortable than the 777. The cheese bread sandwich they gave us was very tasty."
Cons: "At the moment I bought the tickets, I got in contact with SWISS in order to book the seats and a baby bes for a small baby. However, I was told by the contact center that it was not possible to book seats (not even buying them). I have also tried to do it online, without success. One day before departure, I called again and got the same answer and was told to book seats and baby bes during the check-in at the airport. At the moment of the check-in in Dubai, I was informed exactly the opposite: that I should have requested it via contact center or online up to 48h before the flight!! Personnel at the airport was very impolite. Inside the plan, the crew was very nice and helped us to have seats in front with a small bed for the baby."
Pros: "Great entertainment, great food, great flight staff, very comfortable economy seats."
Cons: "We left late."
Cons: "The tv and music did not work."
Pros: "Crew were courteous and competent."
Cons: "No leg room; no head room when seat in front was reclined. Very uncomfortable. Food was also mediocre; expected better from a non-US carrier."
Pros: "crew kind; food fine; on time departure; early arrival - all good."
Cons: "tight quarters. I wouldn't be able to handle a 12 hr flight in a window seat. way too small (and the guy next to me was sick, so I got sick)... would have upgraded but got charged an arm & a leg for an extra bag. A ridiculous amount actually. 150 euros was what it started at!! And it was a carry on sized bag ;("
Pros: "I can not find words to express my dissatisfaction!"
Cons: "I can not find words to express my dissatisfaction!"
Pros: "Generally better than other European airlines particularly BA and better priced"
Cons: "Work to do on consistency with crew"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable and the entertainment was good."
Cons: "There are not diverse food choices"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by over two HOURS. When we got to Istanbul, our connecting flight to NY could not wait 15 MINUTES and instead left. We ended up spending 18 hours in Istanbul for the next flight. 1. The personnel at the transfer desk were rude and unhelpful when we asked questions. They seemed like they could not be bothered with our problems. 2. Turkish airlines did not even bother to help with accommodations, instead giving my wife and I a small bed to sleep in vs a hotel room. The only way to get a hotel room was to leave the airport, and we could not get Visas because we were American citizens. Turkish airlines was a very bad experience. Overall this was a poor experience, and I will not fly Turkish Airlines again. I will make sure my friends and family know that this is a poor airline with poor customer service."
Pros: "Walking past the Turkish Airlines desk in Dulles and knowing I would NEVER have to interact with these monsters again."
Cons: "I am an experienced traveler. I've been to 17 countries and have flown over a million miles in both business and coach. My wife encountered a problem in Istanbul that involved an airport transit visa through Canada. I am certain that any other airline we’ve ever flown would’ve assisted us, since it was easily resolved. To Turkish Airlines, this is simply a part of their business model and a chance to make more money. It took about 8 hours of our time at 5 different airport locations to eventually buy new tickets to get back the next day. Our original tickets say: “REISSUE With 200.00 USD penalty. What I didn’t see was the fine print at the bottom: “Turkish Airlines reserves the right to change rules regarding ticket changes and refunds.”. They mean it. As bad as our personal experience was, the real reason we are so appalled is that we were there long enough to see this is the norm for them. In our single day there, we saw at least 100 other travelers going through similar things. The ONLY solution ever offered is to purchase another ticket. We witnessed several people weeping. Many losing control and shouting. Their own personnel were screaming at customers (in a separate office area though, it was all yucks and laughing). These were people of all nationalities. Africans, Asians, Europeans. We were lucky because we had the means to purchase new tickets. Others clearly didn’t. I really don’t know what happened to some of them. One moment was very symbolic of the entire experience. Another vanquished traveler was paying $843 for a new ticket with cash. He handed her $845 but she, of course, had no change. Instead of the $5, he gave her two $1 bills. I had one in my pocket so gave it to her as well. She held my $1 bill up and pointed to the corner which had a very small piece torn off…no ink was missing…and sneered “I can’t accept this. She did this simply because she could. We were powerless. She knew it and reveled in it."
Pros: "Very grateful our flight wasn't packed- this allowed us to lay down a little and sleep. The attendants were very nice and helpful."
Pros: "Timely departure and arrival. Excellent landing. Helpful crew."
Pros: "The service was very good as always with Turkish."
Cons: "Seats are not spaced enough. It is not big enough for a 6 foot 3 male caucasian."
Pros: "Overall trip was really good."
Cons: "Management of time excellent. Plane went on time. Staff on checking in or in the plane were polite, pleasant, professional and available. Timing of delivery of luggage also was fast."
Pros: "Care packages, the hot washcloth, the little details on the toilet and the choices"
Cons: "It seemed the flight attendants were annoyed by the passengers. Heard there was one food Cart missing so that may have caused the briskness in attitude. Seats weren't as comfortable as I was hoping"
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Pros: "Great seating & service"
Cons: "Non stop talking people behind me!!!!"
Cons: "late boarding"
Pros: "We were fed and offered drinks, given blankets, pillows and complimentary travel kits, issues with flight changes and other questions were answered quickly, ticketing was a breeze, the flight crew was extremely courteous, and flying back with my electronics was covered with professional care of my equipment and certainty that I wouldn't miss my flight."
Cons: "Great experience"
Pros: "Entertainment selection, USB chargers"
Cons: "Snack Like Mac and cheese not very good. Overall food better than most airlines."
Pros: "Flight attendants greeted on arrival. Prompt with service. Good attitudes."
Cons: "Seats not to comfortable but can't really change that without upgrade."
Pros: "It was all good!"
Cons: "Except that in the same day I had two flights with Turkish Airlines and both of them had a delay."
Pros: "I am a vegan and they had delicious vegan food for me and vegetarian food for my daughter."
Cons: "That the plane was not full and we could had better seats if we were made aware of that fact."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 1.5 hours from its scheduled departure time. Upon arrival to Boston airport, it took a long time to find gate and disembark. As a result, I missed my boat ride connection. I had to incur hotel fees and be late for my business appointment the next morning."
Cons: "Great service and on time all the way"
Pros: "Great flight, crew and experience."
Cons: "Breakfast selection was a bit subpar"
Pros: "Food and service"
Pros: "Great food; plenty of room to stretch out (we flew business class)."
Cons: "The service on the flight from Houston to Turkey was much better than it was from Turkey to Houston. For one thing, the flight attendant never made up our beds on the way back to Houston. For another, the sound did not work at my seat, so I was unable to use any of the entertainment. The flight attendant kept trying to give me different headphones...it wasn't the headphones that were the problem!! He never really addressed the issue or coordinated a possible seat change (even though there were empty seats in business class)."
Pros: "Quality experience all the way around. Thank you for city tour of Istanbul during layover. Outstanding touch!"
Cons: "Food was average"
Cons: "Less variety of food and entertainment options compared with other airlines I traced to USaa but service was exceptional."
Cons: "Seats was a lil tight , food was a lil warm not hot"
Pros: "Everything was excellent :)"
Cons: "Have to unload Plane Flight git exchanged without my approval"
Pros: "We liked the cost of airfare and flight times convenient. We also like the onboard TV and wifi."
Cons: "The food on the way back was bad. My wife's was still frozen, which grossed her out, it was ziti pasta. My pasta was crispy raw. The worse part was temperature of plane. It was too hot which made sleeping difficult."
Pros: "Nice crew, comfortable seating, great price"
Pros: "Super friendly crew! Great amount of entertainment on board. Good food."
Cons: "The flight from DXB was delayed, causing us to miss the connection to LIS in IST. 2 hours after standing at the transfer desk they put us on a flight to LIS via CDG. Luggage was kept in IST. Now we are in LIS with no luggage and no confirmation on its whereabouts. Lost and found staff at LIS (Portway) showed total confusion in claiming luggage was in CDG. Today two planes arrived in LIS from IST, none of them with our luggage. Screen shows my name with mention "Not loaded" regarding the luggage. This incompetence is unacceptable from "Europe's best airline". This title is misleading advertising and should not be allowed."
Pros: "Movie choices plentiful"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for almost an hour while passengers were on board the airplane."
Cons: "The flight was late by over 2 hours and we missed our onward flight to San Francisco. At Istanbul, Ataturk Airport, Turkish Airline did not provide a Visa although they gave hotel and boarding passes for next days flight. At Istanbul, Ataturk airport it was a nightmare for us, as senior citizens. Why should we buy the Visa when the flight was delayed which is no fault of ours. Of the 4 automatic e-visa machines onlyEv 1 was working and there was a long queue. In between the machine stopped working for a long time and no one was there to assist or restart. They gave our boarding passes for the next days flight and their responsibility was over. We had to wait for over an hour to get the hotel. Overall it was a bad experience."
Pros: "Excellent service."
Cons: "Istanbul airport takes some getting used to."
Pros: "The boarding process was very good."
Cons: "The cabin was too warm."
Pros: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Great service, amazing food. A lesson to be learned by the American carriers'"
Cons: "Baggage handling was rough. Dented one new bag and broke the buckle on another."
Pros: "Food was great, wish gluten free had been an option! Amazing staff!"
Cons: "The movie selection was excellent. However, were those movies pirated? They had unusual openings that made it appear they were non-copyrighted versions. Not enough leg room."
Cons: "Attendants were kind and service was great"
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed for over an hour and we had to stand in line in closed off secure room (without restroom) due to security issues. They should have had everyone sit down to wait rather than stand in the ABCD group lines."
Cons: "he delay and not knowing much about what the cause was. Having to keep awake in early dawn and have a flight delay can destroy the start of a long awatited vacation."
Pros: "Great service , staff and food ."
Cons: "If drinking a cocktail , I'd have to ring for service. Rude or wild children should be contained by airline staff and not done by local passengers."
Pros: "Very accommodating staff."
Cons: "Temperature was up and down. Seats were small."
Pros: "very comfortable"
Pros: "I didn't like there service b/c they weren't helpful at all. Also I had my baby with me and they didn't give her anything to play with as usually airlines do."
Pros: "Flight attendants so helpful, warm, and welcoming. Food surprisingly good. Toys for the kids, bassinet - everything so much better than expected. Would DEFINITELY recommend."
Pros: "I loved the food and the movies that were available. Especially with such a long flight, it's good to be kept entertained"
Cons: "Space was a little tight, as well as the boarding process was not in order. Everyone was allowed to go in at once regardless of the group or where the seat was and that was a little frustrating."
Pros: "Free entertainment to compensate for the delays."
Cons: "Mechanical issues grounded the plane, had to wait 3 hours for new plane."
Cons: "Umm. It was cancelled due to union workers striking. It was great to spend our last day in Barcelona stressing over whether we could get back home."
Pros: "I liked that Lufthansa was able to get me a flight home on the day planned in spite of the strike. I love Lufthansa's customer service. The flight was excellent. As usual the fight attendants were great. They worked together to get every thing done and make passengers comfortable. I prefer to fly Lufthansa"
Cons: "There were many empty seats in the economy plus section. Once in flight passengers were offered an upgrade but it was still about 300 dollars. I understand that if the price for an upgrade dropped once in flight people would just wait until then to upgrade. However, I think something should be done differently somehow. If economy plus is frequently not full then please consider refiguring your planes to give regular economy just a bit more space, even an inch or two would make it nicer. At the end of our flight the passenger behind me was crying because of pain in her jaw and face. The flight attendants were very attentive, and did all the right things. Except they advised the passenger to see a dentist before her flight home. They should know that sinus pressure, or pain from a sinus infection, can feel like a tooth problem. Just FYI. A suggestion to visit an urgent care center that day would be more appropriate. An urgent care center would be able to take care of sinus problems (she sat behind me for a transatlantic flight I can tell you she had some). An urgent care center would also be able to refer her to another provider as needed."
Pros: "I have some anxiety when I'm flying and I told the flight attendant, I asked her if I could move to a window seat that was the premium economy section and she moved me and my husband and made sure I was ok the whole flight!! I felt so much better. My visit to Germany had been very stressful since I went there for my moms funeral, so I really appreciated her kindness."
Pros: "New plane. Good service."
Cons: "Disorganized boarding."
Cons: "Way to much crying"
Pros: "Flights were on time. The aircraft was new and well equipped."

Pros: "Flight was on time and staff courteous. In flight entertainment was reasonable but the food was not very good."
Pros: "In Airplane flight attendance were great and very helpful and every thing was going good."
Cons: "At Rome air port, the woman in checking was very un knowledgeable and I think even does not know how to work with computer. I was the first person on the line and even with confirmed ticket could not find mine and send me to ticket center . at 4.30 am every were was closed and my flight was going at 6.30 I did not have any connection, called with face time to my son at L.A. finally thanks to Los Angeles TICKET CENTER which they make her issue my ticket before I,m losing my flight."
Cons: "Confussion over my food preference meant I didn't have anything to eat. My frequent flier a/c and booking were communicated to Lufthansa so that it was difficult to find details of the flight and get the miles credited ."
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."
Cons: "The crew was extremely rude. One in particular was very racist in the way we were treated and the way she would talk to white travellers. My 3 year old child was not provided meal after 2 reminders and I had to argue and fight for it. I was forcefully given Asian vegetarian meal when I had made no special meal requests."

Pros: "Flight left and arrived on-time. Flight attendents were pleasant and helpful. Food portions and choices were good, and Lufthansa is always generous with drinks. Good value for money on Lufthansa."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic, as clear instructions were not given about which group was boarding when and where to line up. Also Lufthansa did not do a good job managing carry-on bags, so that it took way too long to load people and many bags were left over once overhead bins were full. Seating area is cramped in economy."
Pros: "Clean new Airbus 380. Nice crew"
Pros: "Almost everything."

Cons: "The first flight for this trio was cancelled .. stop with automated cron jobs"
Pros: "Good crew and food!"
Cons: "I reserved this flight months in advance, but were given seats in the last row, next to the restrooms, when there were other seats available. In the United part of this trip, they let me reserve my seats when I paid."

Cons: "Having to go through a second security check line between flights in Frankfurt. Had already done it in cape town and no one could explain why we had to do it again. Side note: my flight from cape town to Frankfurt was earful... the guy seated next to me had excessive flatulence and their were dueling baby crying for 7/12hrs. IMO infants Should not be allowed on flights over 3hrs in length.... they can ruin a flight for a whole plane"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time. Efficient service."
Cons: "None. The seats on this Airbus 320 were more comfortable on this leg than on the transatlantic leg of the journey."
Pros: "Great Seats / Bedding Excellent Drinks Excellent Service Delicious Food."
Cons: "Boarding was a Zoo. No real First Class announcement; confusion of which line was Business, First, or Economy, no clear announcements. This is the 2nd time this is happened in a row. Not sure why. Movie Choices were pretty poor, but TV series made up for it."
Pros: "Staff were polite Comfort ok Food was basic No entertainment."
Pros: "The crew - seemed very amenable and pleasant on this flight. One helped me move to effectively solve the acute posture problem."
Cons: "The seat - window by request, but it was in front of an emergency exit The seat - is jammed in - very tight - could not put it back to relax, and could not relax my left side by the window. My left shoulder and arm and left hip started hurting - couldn't sleep - took 2 days to get rid of the numbness in my arm. I asked to move, and it became obvious that there were many empty seats in the next section behind. I moved, and my comfort improved. Why was I given such a posture killer - especially on such a very long flight with seats to spare?"
Pros: "The flights were lovely, the food was very good (for airline food), the drinks were generous - even the cheap seats were offered wine or cocktails! And after dinner were served coffee with Bailey's or cognac. Hot towels were provided. I would seek out a Lufthansa flight again."
Cons: "It was very difficult to click into any movies, etc. That needs to be looked into. I spent a ridiculous amount just trying to get into a movie."

Pros: "The captain and his crew were excellent on this flight as well, and stayed friendly and attentive to passengers throughout the flight."
Cons: "There was some issue with the entertainment device which stopped working towards the last 3rd of the trip. I could live with this problem and hope will never have any bigger issues going on during flights, it was just a little bit annoying, especially for the kids, but not such a big deal :)"
Pros: "Better then United airline"
Cons: "Everything was awesome"
Pros: "Flight from Budapest to Munich was slightly delayed and I had a tight connection time to begin with. The effort the Lufthansa staff made to get me to me connection was heroic."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "No escalators when we arrived in Frankfurt and the bus ride before getting on planetoAthens was not good"
Pros: "Only best part of Lufthansa is newer planes. Smooth rides. However, I don't think they can count on their customers base only on one positive for long run."
Cons: "Flights were late and boarding was caios, no one had any clue what to do. Blankets were filthy. Entertainment had limited choice. Considering I took six flights in this month, I will let it slide that they ran out of New movies. Worst part was food. Obviously, there is no quality consideration when they decide menu. Check Emirates or other similar fare bracket airlines to understand the gravity of Lufthansa food problem. If one reason I had to choose to drop Lufthansa from my future consideration then that would be worst food and drinks. I would strongly recommend that they should assign people who need additional time to board at the back of the plane. It will help them to go back of the plane faster and avoid gridlock in the middle. Another advantage is it will help other passengers leave plane faster at the end of the ride. Boarding process will be come significantly faster by filling the plane from back to front by loading passanger with children and who needs time at the first loading area at the back of the plane. Thanks"
Cons: "TV didn't work"
Pros: "Flight made up for delayed departure so we could get off that flying relic earlier. Had enormous storage bins against outside seat in upper deck business section. Great choice of movies."
Cons: "Bizarre seat design and foot cubbyhole meant I could not find a single comfortable position for 8 hours and I am only 5'10". Awful screen technology in unusual swing out mounting lacked sharp focus except for text screens. Pitiful screen control software. Bizarre flight progress animations."
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."
Pros: "I would like a direct flight from Krakow to Chicago. Lufthansa is a very good airline to Poland. Would definitely fly Lufthansa again."
Pros: "Everything was wonderful. I'll definitely choose Lufthansa again!"
Pros: "It was UA. Not Lufthansa."
Pros: "The lady on the counter was very friendly & helped me to rebook another flight to Frankfurt early next morning."
Cons: "Flighing from Nashville to Washington for 30 minutes & than have to turn around due to weather."
