Cons: "I discovered when I hit Dubai that despite having an eight an a half hour layover that I didn't qualify for the free hotel I thought I did qualify for as someone with an eight hour plus flight so that was a little disappointing have had it before so assumed it was on all flights but that ended up being a negative surprise..."

Cons: "Terrible food Outdated entertainment"

Pros: "Service on time nice attendants clean plane modern"

Cons: "I like it"

Pros: "Food and crew were great"

Cons: "seats should be roomier for such a long flight"

Cons: "Me, my husband and my daughter didnt get seats together in the aircraft though we checked in before 48 hours."

Pros: "The flight itself was fine"
Cons: "But the next morning I became violently ill and had to be hospitalized. Before we took off Emirates reported they were deciding whether to remove a sick passenger from the plane before taking off, which they ultimately did. I wonder if everyone on the flight got sick."

Pros: "The flight didn't feel long at all since I was very comfortable throughout. They offer good on-flight services and an endless list of movies to watch. I give this 9/10."

Pros: "We liked the excellent crew. They were very curtious and made sure every small request was fullfilled. We met couple of friends on the same flight. And so kids had excellent time during the 14 hour journey. The crew were very sweet to all the kids. Very patient and fullied there numerous requests."

Pros: "I liked everything :) And the stuff was great I really enjoyed it ;)"

Pros: "I flew Emirates for the first time. You guys rock. The stewardesses very quick to help with their smiley faces. The Asian vegetarian meal was okay."
Cons: "Why did I not fly with you guys before???"

Pros: "Everything I have come to expect on Emirates Economy, except for boarding and disembarking the aircraft involving bus journeys - and the condition of my suitcase on arrival."
Cons: "1. Use of buses on departure and arrival. The length of the bus journey from the terminal, in a vehicle with no seats, made me suspect we were going the whole way to Geneva by bus. 2. Don't know whether Fly Dubai or Emirates are to blame but my suitcase (a top grade modern Samsonite) was a mess by the time it reached Geneva, with rubber seal on one side of the zip peeled back and almost off. Why can't airlines and terminals ensure baggage is treated with care and respect?"

Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "wifi wasn't good - I couldn't connect. Wine choice wasn't good (white). Would have preferred a sav blanc"

Pros: "777 are pretty good"
Cons: "Screen was broken for the whole flight , after repeated calls to the flight attendants nothing was done"

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

Cons: "I pre-selected the Asian Veg Meal but they were out and I didn't get any meal because of that."

Pros: "On that route the plane can be quite empty on the Melbourne-Singapore leg, meaning lots of space to sleep in coach."
Cons: "Food served very fast (I barely had my first bite that they came with coffee and tea and never seen again). Quality of the food was ok."

Cons: "Piece of checked baggage was lost en-route. It took over 2 hours to get through checked baggage and customs in the middle of the night because after we had already filled out all information regarding piece of luggage with one baggage counter employee. Japanese Customs refused to let us through due to "unaccompanied baggage" since the piece was lost by the airline and had us go back to another baggage employee who couldn't grasp that we already went through the process and had no clue what to do."

Pros: "Everything was amazing."
Cons: "Nothing. Great flights"

Pros: "Crew v good"
Cons: "Food .. Fish undercooked ... Aircraft bit dated"

Cons: "My flight seat assignment was changed without my knowledge"

Pros: "In Flight Service and Guest Care for Wheel chair assistance"

Pros: "Activity bags for children, lots of legroom, great entertainment selections - new movies, nice individual screens, great colors and lighting and a nice smell. Flight attendants all nice and helpful, love the flight attendant outfits."

Cons: "Delayed and passengers not given accommodation. Food also had to ask."

Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "No entertainment, un friendly crew, terrible food"

Pros: "About as good as they come."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "The crew was very accommodating"
Cons: "Entertainment system was old and with few choices"

Pros: "Considering I'm still in Zurich since they rescheduled my flight for the next day I would say there is nothing positive to say at this point."
Cons: "Due to over booking they did not wait for connecting flight and instead bumped me onto the next day flight so I would say they could have been more honest in their dealing."

Pros: "Crew was excellent. Seats were uncomfortable"

Pros: "Lots of room on the flight, fresh warm bread, lots of water, nice cabin crew"
Cons: "How do I book a vegetarian meal??"

Pros: "The inflight entertainment was great and helped to pass the time. The food was good for airline food."
Cons: "The flight staff was just okay - they could have been friendlier. The seat cushions seemed old - they were comfortable enough for sitting but not comfortable to sleep."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything aside from the food and cabin atmosphere."
Cons: "Food and cabin atmosphere. The cabin felt very stuffy and warm."

Pros: "Best food I've ever had on an airline! Great flight. Not too full."
Cons: "Arm rests didn't lift all the way up on the plane."

Cons: "Seats are tiny and uncomfortable!"

Pros: "I was offered to check in my carry on, it was nice."
Cons: "I was told a wheel chair would be available to help me get to Terminal E in Zurich. I had literally TO RUN to catch my connecting flight to NYC since the chair was not their for me in Zurich. I almost missed my flight. I am a 79 years old woman. That was one terrible experience."

Pros: "Awesome business class seat, or rather throne"
Cons: "Limited selection of movies"

Pros: "full aircraft"

Pros: "We had a turbulent trip but our pilots were very competent and got us to Zuroch safely. Bathroom was pretty clean."
Cons: "The plane was an older model and very outdated. The flight attendants gave us a choice between chicken or vegetarian pasta. I chose chicken, but it was actually beef. The salad was literally iceberg lettuce and a slice of cucumber. Overall, the meal was one of the lowest quality I've ever had in am airline. The outdated onboard entertainment system was annoying to operate and it was impossible to even see the screen when the person ahead leaned back."

Pros: "The crew were great and boarding went very smoothly."
Cons: "After such a smooth boarding we found we had to sit on the tarmac for an hour because of congestion at Zurich."

Pros: "There was too little space between rows. Sometimes it was too difficult to watch a movie because the screen was too close to my face."

Pros: "On time, friendly and incredibly efficient. Runs just like trains, just at a higher elevation!"
Cons: "For the home of Emmentaler I expected a bit more taste from the cheese sandwich."

Pros: "Efficient, excellent staff and service, beautiful plane"
Cons: "There was a nearly impossible connection time in Zurich."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "That it wasn’t a flight to denver"

Pros: "The entertainment and food was very good. I also think having fresh fruit available in between meals is one of the most appealing things about SWISS."
Cons: "For some reason, one of the air hostesses refused to let me use the restroom. For over five hours I tried to use the restroom and she kept yelling at me to sit back in my seat, in spite the fact that several other people were using the restroom and several other people were up and moving about, she singled me out and wouldn't let me get up without harassing me. Eventually I appealed to another one of the flight crew who allowed me to urinate, but it was over five hours I had to pee and was inexplicably not allowed to."

Pros: "Everything! Very professional, great food"

Pros: "Unlike some airlines the cabin crew is professional in appearance and behavior- courteous and pleasant. My husband and I enjoy the fact that ski equipment is taken without additional charge. The direct flight to Zurich is very convenient."
Cons: "Having to pay for seat selection"

Pros: "Throughout the long flight, the cabin crew was excellent. They were attentive and friendly. They avoided interrupting quiet time and rest time by keeping off the PA system (well done). The food was fantastic. We were lucky enough to get some business class tickets with points, and the food was amazing. Wine was excellent. This team was quite solicitous of my parent with reduced-mobility. And the bathrooms stayed clean throughout the flight. find this is often an areas where many airlines fall down. And it's too bad, because while I'm 100% sure it is no fun to clean a toilet while in flight, it is a really a big negative for the customers. Overall excellent attention to detail, with a cheerful and "can-do" crew that kept the plane "proper" throughout the flight and provided seamless service. Good stuff. Will fly again."

Pros: "Everything was as accommodating as possible."

Pros: "Flight is conformable.. Crew was fine."
Cons: "experience at the Zurich airport was not good. They checked our passports 3 times before we got to our gate. Swiss airlines should account for these things when they give options for the connections. we had about and hour and half layover and did not even have time to have coffee or anything before a 9+ hour flight. We just ran from one flight to another and barely made to our flight.."

Pros: "food!"
Cons: "space at my feet"

Pros: "My partner and I loved our first flight with Swiss from JFK to Zurich the chairs was amazing, we enjoyed the full bed and the entertainmnet screen was amazing to enjoy. The food was delicious and the service was amazing."
Cons: "My Partner and I was dissatisfied with our connecting from Zurich to Cairo. We expected the same flight but we were in basically in coach with little more leg room. The chairs barely reclined to a comfortable position. There was no entertainment, just a three and a half hour flight at the flight plan on a small tv hanging over. their was no differentiation between the economy behind us. just the food that was brought to us, other felt the same as well who were traveling in business with us."

Cons: "I bought economy class ticket! (I have a printout ticket as proof!) When I went to the airport i had a VERY UNPLEASANT surprise. I had a 23kg bag. Bording stuart said that my ticket is ECO LIGHT class and I don't have the right to any baggage. Worst thing of all was that the reason of my trip to Paris was my sister's graduation and half of the baggage was my formal wear and other half were presents for my sister! Your lack of transparency ruined one in lifetime special event- MY SISTER'S GRADUATION. I am very glad that you asked me for my opinion because I am using my free time to demand full refund, even tough the damage is much bigger than the cost of the ticket and it's irreplaceable."

Pros: "I liked the staff and the chocolate"
Cons: "I didn't like the meal much and the lighting was too bright most of the time."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very attentive and professional. Food and snacks were tasty and Proseseco delicious! Upgraded seats were worth it for a long flight."

Pros: "Prompt and business like"
Cons: "As a business passenger I was told to go to the Avianca lounge this lounge is not Swiss standards the man sitting next to me was in a t shirt and swim shorts I started flying all over since 1952 most in the back so sorry to see such relaxed protocols"

Pros: "i'd like services and the food"

Pros: "The service was great, the staff was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The business seats that we booked were normal economy plus seats with no one in the middle seat. The whole idea of booking a business class ticket is the extra comfort that comes with the lay flat seat or at absolute minimum on smaller planes the wider more comfortable seat. Neither of those were present on this flight. Calling this a business class is a rip off."

Pros: "It's swiss. everything works. always."
Cons: "i didn't like leaving switzerland. but stockholm isn't so bad. gate agent can be a bit more careful when letting pre-boards on - too many people flying to scandinavia do not seem to respect boarding priority."

Pros: "Airline services and great time scheduling"
Cons: "Upon arriving to Chicago airport the Chicago airport couldn't get passengers off the plane due to mechanical issue"

Pros: "Comfy seats, free drinks, pretty good food. Excellent flight attendants and an eloquent pilot."

Pros: "The crew was very nice, I felt bad for them as people were constantly complaining."
Cons: "The tv's did not work, was extremely disappointing."

Pros: "Crew was very nice & humble"
Cons: "Food quality could be better it was tasteless very low standards, & boarding crew in Chicago or in Mumbai needs training because they don't want to give you a choice for food or the seat From Zurich to India & they runout off Nonveg food & crew was telling they have only veg take it or leave it samething Zurich to Chicago if the boarding crew do write thing then this could be avoided ."

Pros: "efficient boarding ang pre- boarding"
Cons: "these planes are not meant for people above 180 cm. On transcontinental flights it is absolutely unacceptable"

Pros: "The crew was attentive and great!"
Cons: "We have been without luggage for 1.5 days. We are being kept in the dark and not getting any help from Swiss Air."

Cons: "No video screens at the seats or any entertainment."

Pros: "Crew let me sleep!"
Cons: "nothing to report since I slept!"

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Automated check in machines were horrible and almost caused me to miss my flight"

"Extremely slow boarding caused the flight to be late 40 minutes. Missing the connecting flight"

"Very bumpy ride with lot of turbulence. However, the flight landed 25 minutes early, which shortened the time."

Pros: "plane was clean, bording went smoothly."
Cons: "Flight attendants were no where to be found most of the flight. They didnt walk up and down the aisles for literally hours before we saw them again. Never offered water during a 11 hour flight, they only came around deal meal service time. But the time in between meals, we seldom saw them."

Pros: "Excellent service . Good customer service"

Pros: "Baggage policy and amenities on board as well as the Istanbul airport as a connector."

Pros: "No complaints, Turkish airlines is simply one of the best company in Europe."

Cons: "Not stealing expensive gifts from my suitcases. That was very disappointing"

Cons: "Long delays, poor information, cold food and an entertainment system that wouldn't play films properly."

Pros: "The flight was on time , The crew was very professional ."
Cons: "The online check in wasn’t possible so I wasn’t able to choose my seat."

Pros: "Everything ok."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I got upgraded to business class, only the fourth time in 60 years flying!"

Pros: "Crew was nice. I was really thirsty and I kept asking for water. He should have just given me a small bottle. Also need more than 4 Bollywood movies. This was a returning flight after 2 weeks and it had the same 4 movies which I had already seen."
Cons: "I had a 14 hour layover in istanbul airport. Arrived at midnight and flight wasn’t until 2 pm the next day. I just assumed that they would give me a hotel. Come to find out thats wasnt the case when I landed. Given all kinds of reasons/excuses. The guy at the transfer desk told me”you should have known that your layover was this long since you booked it”. Will have second thoughts about flying Turkish again. Left a bad taste in my mouth. Might stick with Emirates or Qatar."

Pros: "The service, the food. The staff is very friendly and helpful."

Pros: "Its was sooo goood, thanks"

Pros: "Great service and brand new plane!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I made a mistake in changing of flight dates and within 24 hours I tried to rectify it and I couldn't for some strange reasons, I called for help and they told me they cannot help me cos Turkish airlines have already made the changes... This is so so horrible and am still here in turkey stranded.... Thank you very much for ur services"

Cons: "Crew was not speaking English at all in the business Class crew was paying attention to certain people Asked few time for service"

Cons: "It was a struggle to get our hotel from the turkish hotel desk crew. We were travelling from Cape Town to Toronto with a little baby and had a layover of approx 10 hours at Istanbul. They claimed that our layover was 9 hr 40 mins (and not 10 hours) and I had to argue before we finally got a transit hotel. Their customer service is poor."

Pros: "My experience on Turkish Airlines exceeded expectations. Boarding was smooth and the flight was on time. Service was excellent and staff professional. The crew was courteous but the hostesses could try smiling a bit more. Their courtesy was appreciated but it felt very methodical, more of an obligation and not spontaneous. The pilot did a great introduction and gave information about the trip. Also the plane toilets were clean compared to other companies. I expected to see a wider selection of more recent and award winning movies. Will definitely fly Turkish Airlines again."

Cons: "After returning home I found items had been stolen from my luggage. Specifically about half of the items in my first aid kit were taken. Total cost of replacement will be approx $30."

Cons: "They didn't have my special meal"

Pros: "The way flying was meant to be."

Pros: "Service was excellent Food was delicious..."
Cons: "Everything was perfect..."

Pros: "NA"
Cons: "I requested a wheelchair at the airports but didn't receive that service."

Pros: "Very attentive staff who gave us an extra meal and checked in on us while my girlfriend was sick from food poisoning the day before."
Cons: "Far too few agents at check in. The signage wasn't clear and we waited in line for 15 minutes before realizing we had to be in a different line, for which there was only one attendant checking in for three different flights all leaving at the same time. When there are three layers of security at Attaturk airport, everyone waiting to check in were rightfully worried they may miss their flight."

Pros: "Awesome cabin crew."
Cons: "Tight seats and some passengers were so noisy and loud throughout the trip."

Pros: "great vegetarian food"
Cons: "very short time layover between arrival and departure in istanbul by time we departed the plane which landed on time at 12.30 we got on bus that got top terminal at 12.45 and ran crazy fast to get to boarding for flight leaving 13.25. flight that close together are very stressful and unreliable"

Cons: "When we arrived walking to the shuttle the crew had thrown our play pen n stroller out on the walkway. They didnt take it inside with our luggage.It was checked in with all the suitcases! So luckly my son recognized it as we were walking by. Very disapointed if he hadnt noticed it we would of been out of luck. No baby bed or stroller! Why dont they take it with the luggage OR at least let you know they dont transfer them for you! Not happy"

Pros: "The food on flight."
Cons: "Ground staff in Istanbul were very rude! Staff would not respond to lights turned on on the flight as well, for any assistance."

Cons: "The flight was delayed for 47 minutes and the boarding was a mess because they changed the plane at the last minute and everybody's seats were mixed. Then it was understood that there's over booking on the flight then they again lost time for searching for volunteers to drop their flight and take a further flight."

Pros: "The food and beverage selection, as well as the service in business class was excellent. Initially I dreaded the long layover of 8 hours. But I found the Turkish Airlines Business Lounge. It was so spectacular that I didn't want to leave it. I found a small movie theatre equipped with leather oversized recliners and slept. I was told that the 2 story lounge is 6000 square meters."
Cons: "The business class seating is old and not as comfortable as the newer herring bone configurations. Privacy could be improved."

Cons: "Passport control"

Pros: "Food Was good and right amount."

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "LOVED the attention that was given to passengers that wanted/needed rest."
Cons: "Looked into purchasing 1st class because flight was 10hrs & it was insanely expensive. The poor peoples cusions need some up dating, they are uncomfortable & worn."

Pros: "easy check in"
Cons: "lack of leg room"

Pros: "Overall journey was ok"
Cons: "I am vegeterian. Food was horrible :("

Pros: "Free beer, edible food, free tote bag with earplugs blindfolds and (crappy) ear phones"
Cons: "Very small seats, long layover in airport with minimal entertainment options, security risks of spending layover in terrorist attacked airport, flying from prague we had to fly 3 hours East only to fly 12 hours West...24 hours of travel to fly from eastern Europe is not necessary. Next time I'll pay more and avoid flying through Istanbul."

Pros: "Brand new aircraft. Onboard wifi and live TV. Good food. This is one of the routes where Turkish feels need to compete."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding procedures in Istanbul airport."

Pros: "The usual courteous service and interesting spread of appetizers."
Cons: "I am a frequent user of Turkish Airlines and I enjoy the good service they offer BUT I have never understood why they just can't get boarding better organised. Regardless of what destination I have been going to, boarding time with Turkish is a nightmare, it is always chaotic and provisions for priority boarding for premium class passengers is a joke, often non-existent. All other services are great but this one element takes the joy out of what would otherwise be a great airline."

Pros: "The staff were helpful, the food was it's usual high quality and it was possible to grab a a snack or drink during flight if you wanted one without bothering the flight crew"
Cons: "I found the announcements at the start of the flight a little annoying as they were timed to continually interrupt the films I'd chosen, but I prefer that to not being able to start a film while taxiing."

Pros: "Flight attendant cared a lot about the older lady sitting next to me, was grateful when I helped her. Food was excellent, screen size and selection of viewing material was very good. We were on time and the little comfort bag was very good, lip balm!"
Cons: "Nothing that I didn't really like, the price was good and the service excellent."

Cons: "There were 4 crying babies all seated closely together."

Pros: "The one episode of Modern Family from the one of the old seasons"
Cons: "The fact that it took 4 (in 4 hours) attempts and a request to fill out a complaint form that got the staff to switch the air back on on a flight to AFRICA!!! I was about to undress myself to stop sweating!! Seats are uncomfortable and TV selection outdated."

Pros: "Worst flight ever. Please enforce conduct code."
Cons: "I had to ask a neighboring passenger if her would allow me 20mins of my flight without his rear end in my face. He was a fairly large man and constantly bending over in the isle to chat with his family. His infant was being attended to by his wife who constantly paced around to shake the baby (I'm sure the baby was annoyed as well). The baby finally spat up on the floor and seat. Everyone in the family could not sit still more than 5mins at a time, jumping up, moving around, switching seats, passing items. The men turned the area into a social scene/bar. I was too distracted by all this activity hovering over me to enjoy reading or relaxing. I constantly had rear ends in my face, and I constantly had to dodge and lean in my seat. The aforementioned tall man even had the nerve to fold away my television monitor when I dozed off so that it would not be an obstruction for his activity. By then I'd had enough. The This flight was terrible. Non of the staff requested better conduct or mindfulness of the other passengers. I believe the airline should strongly consider having a separate space for large families, families with babies, or at least have a code of conduct to which passengers should respect for the sake of every paying customer's ability to enjoy such a long flight."

Pros: "Nothing special."
Cons: "No Internet, seats were very uncomfortable..ugh"

Cons: "Not on time. Missed my connecting flight. and my luggage did not arrive at my final destination."

Cons: "There is a sthg in the food which was plastic.and it could be really dangerous for me.I showed the hostes and said they could change in flight from istanbul to izmir."

Pros: "Service n presentation. On time departure n food auperb."
Cons: "Some entertainment screen not working."

Pros: "The Turkish Air staff were very patient and accommodating to the Nigerian passengers around me, many of whom seemed to not know the norms of travelling internationally. They were patient and calm, never losing their cool when the passengers were demanding or spoke negatively towards them. I applaud the Turkish Air staff for their flexibility."
Cons: "Travelling with Nigerians."

"It did not allow me to check in and left seats in advance or get a boarding pass. When specifically asked agent at gate for the row that had extra leg room, as my so. Is 6’4” she gives us a row where the seats do not even incline nor is there any extra room. Also the temp in Avon was high, making many passengers sweat Improve customer service !"

"KLM flight sucks! Not very active about telling passengers to put in their mask over the nose. 🙄"

Pros: "Pretty straight forward. Clean. Efficient."

Pros: "Leg room in comfort +"
Cons: "Removal of food trays could be done sooner"

Cons: "Got delayed"

Pros: "Delta crews are very friendly and helpful. Seats are 'good' on the E175 plane - better than the cramped CRJ200 on some other short flights. We boarded early, left a little early and arrived early. Nothing to complain about, except maybe a crying baby behind me, but that's not Delta's fault. :)"

Pros: "The ability to charge my cell phone via USB ports. Also the movies on long flights is really nice"
Cons: "Quicker way to get off plane"

Pros: "Crew was great seats comfortable but quite near back my connecting flight I had to get my seat when I got to the airport I was second from the back but close to washrooms"
Cons: "There was no entertainment on second flight but I didn’t use it anyway On second flight washroom was not very good my scarfe dropped on the floor and was wet and yuckie"

Cons: "Leg room on modern aircraft seems to get smaller and smaller"

Cons: "Everything was excellent."

Cons: "Too much delay - departure was planned on March 15 @ 7 pm and take off happened on March 16 @ 12pm - a complete failure!!!!"

Pros: "Even in the absolute freezing (-40F) the plane landed an hour early into Minneapolis. Was only delayed 20 minutes leaving. Crew did amazing to get the plane going."

Pros: "Everything good"

Pros: "The great job the crew preformed."
Cons: "older plane - seats were not comfortable."

Pros: "The cheese bites were amazing!"

Cons: "I love everything"

Pros: "The crew was wonderful, the flight was on time."
Cons: "But the seats are so tight that we were definitely elbow to elbow and once seated I was unable to access even the purse that was at my feet. There was no entertainment and the tray table was tiny, not even an indentation for a cup!"

Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Great"

Pros: "The crew members were so kind and friendly. I actually did feel more at ease and made my journey more enjoyable. Specifically, was were traveling with guitars and they gave us no hesitation to board early in order to Stowe our instruments safely. They were very pleasant during serving and with requests. The offerings of movies and TV were excellent and extensive."
Cons: "The meal really wasnt very good. But the snacks and beverages we're quite good. Not sure if it is related but the check in/luggage drop process was quite slow."

Pros: "The seat back screens."
Cons: "Completely full flight. Rough landing."

Pros: "crew kept a great attitude throughout"
Cons: "Having to find my boarding pass to deplane"

Cons: "Delay 3 hours in the unheated airport in Monterrey Mexico was very uncomfortable"

Cons: "I booked through kayak and received an e-mail saying "you're booked!" with a flight itinerary and everything and then I got to the airport and they told me I had no ticket to get on the flight and no payment had ever been made and that to get on the flight I would have to pay over $1000 for a seat !!!! The original ticket I bought was under $400. I was NOT happy with this at all - Kayak screwed me over and I expect compensation."

Pros: "Flight was 3 hours late leaving due to frost on wings. De icing truck wouldn’t work so they waited until sunrise and parked the plane in the sun. Real hi tech solution."

Cons: "No help with baggage when boarding the plane, they hurry you up for nothing, because we had to wait 20 mi utes to take off."

Pros: "Boarding went smoothly. We were on time. Attendants were excellently friendly and efficient. That is so nice to not have a grumpy flight attendant. Drinks are ridiculously priced, but I wasn't suprised. Great flight."

Pros: "The flight attendants were incredible the flight was great the movies for good great for our flight"

Pros: "The seats were very comfortable. The snacks and sandwich were good. The staff was very friendly, helpful and nice."
Cons: "We were unable to connect to the airplane WiFi, so we couldn't enjoy the onboard entertainment. The plane was not as clean as we would like it to be. There was old food under my seat."

Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly, boarding was fast, on time and overall service was excellent"
Cons: "The plane was small so not a lot of space and didn't offer food other than one beverage"

Cons: "My flight got cancelled without letting me know in advance I was in the airport and spent me hours to switch a flight I ended up arriving at a different airport and need to spend more money for über"

Pros: "the flight was on time and the staff very helpful"

Pros: "Free tv"

Pros: "No delay and the flight was ahead of the schedule (arriving)."
Cons: "The airplane was too old and seats were too crowded."

Pros: "People are good"
Cons: "Flight delays!"

Pros: "Very informative staff"
Cons: "Was late"

Cons: "Flight was booked via Princess for a cruise. Flight from Vacoouver to LAX was through Delta partner Westjet. One schedule number and flight number for Delta, a different set of numbers for Westjet. Westjet requires you call them for seat assignment for a fee. Just not smooth!"

Pros: "?"
Cons: "The seat in this plane is the narrowest and most uncomfortable I have ever encountered in business."

Cons: "The comfort seating on this aircraft was not as good as other Deltaflights. No extras or service."

Cons: "Because I refused to pay extra money after booking my family of three on your flight, you separated us into middle seats scattered in the back of the airplane. I believe this is evil underhanded extortion after you had already published price and I had agreed by clicking to buy the ticket."

Pros: "They got us from A to B without any problems."
Cons: "Efficient to the point of robotic."

"Not having 2hr delays would be great"

Pros: "Vegetarian option of the food. Constant hydration"
Cons: "WiFi"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "There was loud, annoying static over the intercom off and on."

Pros: "Nice crew short flight."
Cons: "Not much flight was too short to say"

Pros: "The crew was good and the food from Frankfurt to Abuja was good"
Cons: "The layover time was extremely too long and would even be longer during my return"

Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "Lufthansa continuosly treats repeat customers like milk cows. The new ‘light fare’ is a genius way to charge the same as before with ZERO customer support."

Cons: "Perdieron nuestras maletas, de prácticamente todos los pasajeros."

Pros: "The food was really good! I don’t expect much from airlines but I feel like I got a real meal on board (two of them!)"
Cons: "We were delayed taking off and there were three screaming babies, but there’s only so much they can do about that."

Pros: "The crew was polite and efficient. Moved very well around sleeping passengers sprawled feet. The shortcomings of the flight had to do with being in a tail section of an economy class in a packed transoceanic flight."
Cons: "At the beginning of the long flight the cabin was chilled, which made me happy I had my hooded sweatshirt with me, but at the end it was hot and stuffy. There was no air regulation available from the seat, only light."

Pros: "Staff was helpful and kind. Entertainment had variety."
Cons: "Flight ran out of chicken meals fast, forcing the rest of the plane to have vegetarian instead. I was sat in 41G. Awkward seating arrangement. Worst seat ever! Super cramp, making a 9hr flight very uncomfortable."

Pros: "entertainment was good"
Cons: "the flight attendants were mostly absent. The flight attendants on the other side of the aisle were much more attentive and nice"

Pros: "I’m so grateful for all the movies"
Cons: "Flight was delayed bc of Pakistan air space so I had to take 3 planes instead of 2"

Cons: "There were not enough vegetarian options, so I had only bread, butter, and dessert."

Cons: "It was Air Canada. Terrible service. Staff needs education on where to take travelers thru the immigration locations. Wasted time going to different locations and time is an essentence! Too many changes of staff from one location to another when it came with wheelchair assistance. One staff was on her personal phone!!! Had 3 different changes of hands then still did not get us to the right terminal, had to run to make the flight! Is that how you treat a 86 years old traveler?"

Cons: "Few toilets for two sections and seats too close, if it is not uptight the seat in front of you. You can not enjoy and watch movies."

Pros: "Service was excellent, food was good, everyone was friendly and nice."
Cons: "Everything was OK."

Pros: "Very comfortable flight. Excellent take off and landing. Liked the extra legroom in coach for a bit more $$. Super friendly & professional crew. PA system was very difficult to understand."
Cons: "the food was a bit bland. Selection of movies very limited"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flying for funeral and they changed my destination from 2 flights to 3 because of a 3hr delay. Nobody cares about your wellbeing"

Cons: "Delayed by two hours. Made me miss my connection. Also it is far too cramped for anyone who is tall. We need more leg room"

Pros: "The flights were on time, we made a 1 hr 5 min connection with no fluster. Dinner was one of the best airplane meals, breakfast a little less so"

Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "We were a little late with boarding. I prefer Lufthansa for travel, but I can think of a ton more, easy to serve, more healthy and delicious menu items. The food smells good, usually, but it isn't that great. The chicken I had was fine, but the side dish (sweet potatoes) wasn't good. The salad had too much radicchio, the soft cheese was too rubbery to cut (spilled my water doing so), the cake wasn't up to German reputation. Also, one flight attendant, got her own suitcase down, at least 5 times, stretching directly above me, with her jacket in my face and never apologizing. My seat wouldn't recline, nor could other peoples. This is why I paid to choose my seat, so I could sleep, more easily but I sat upright the whole time."

Pros: "Loaded plane from both ends, giving fast boarding time."
Cons: "Limited entertainment on this short flight."

Cons: "Crew at Newark airport unpleasant and dismissive."

Pros: "Travel time was good and easy travel"
Cons: "Entertainment tv tapes"

Pros: "Clean. Friendly staff"

Pros: "Great crew. Leg room reminded me of old days flying comfort."
Cons: "Flight was continually delayed, 15 by 15 minutes until 4 hours had elapsed."

Cons: "They tell you to download the app for entertainment but it doesn't work. No entertainment on the flight and no food unless you pay. The service sucked."

Pros: "The food and service is always good. In flight entertainment and nice planes!"
Cons: "To board- it's just a long queue - any way to shorten line so we don't have to stand for so long?"

Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above."

Cons: "This was an Air Canada flight. Time in line to check baggage in Frankfurt was 2+ hours, baggage was lost but arrived the next day at our destination. Unable to check-in online ahead of time for unknown reasons. Overall the Air Canada ground experience was pretty bad, but the crew/meals/entertainment was good."

Pros: "All great"

Cons: "Plane was very late; boarding late; short flight so no food or entertainment, but not really a problem. Overall condition of plane was mediocre at best -- old plane, not particularly clean. It was actually Air Canada. If that is a partner of Lufthansa, very disappointed. Would not fly Air Canada again, but LOVE Lufthansa."

Cons: "Canceled and delayed flights are unavoidable but deceitful customer agents is unacceptable. We will never fly Lufthansa again."

Pros: "food was great"
Cons: "gate changed and we gad to take the bus to the plane which lead to sn delay and almost the plane couldn't leave before the airport closed. however, we eventually made it ..."

Cons: "Leg room on the 747 was ok. The service was average considering i had to keep asking the staff to atore my son's insuline medication in a cool place, they said they cannot at 1st but eventually they did. The entertainment system had to be rebooted 3 times during the flight which takes 15 to 20 minutes. So it took 3 hrs to finish the movie. The connection flight was a bit redicilous, 1 hr to walk to the other terminal in frankfurt, the 1 hr flight delay , the boarding was like a zoo, no initiative to take control and organize the boarding, the elderly and the children and crammed withe other passengers.."

Pros: "Upgrade to Economy Plus. Very comfortable seats, I am a fan! Excellent Indian veg food."
Cons: "Taking back the headsets 30 mins before landing."

Pros: "Airline crew very friendly and courteous throughout entire flight"

Pros: "Ease of making connecting flight to Budapest"

Cons: "Where to begin? During the booking process, there was no indication my travel partner and I would be flying Air Canada, and not Lufthansa. We were seated in the last row of the plane with painfully little legroom — even for two women of relatively small stature. The plane was not equipped with modern conveniences of operational wifi, music, or any other means of entertainment over the ten-hour flight. We were nearly an hour late to depart, but were unable to hear anything over the speakers regarding the cause for the delay, nor could we hear any of the flight attendants' safety instructions. What we could hear, however, was the surprisingly loud and nearly constant DINNNGGGG of the passengers' call buttons as they summoned the flight attendants. Because the flight was an overnighter, we attempted to sleep, but it was nearly impossible to do so due to the noise. I had earplugs in and could still hear the chimes, which were positioned right above our seats and made for an unpleasant experience and cranky travelers. The food was subpar as expected, but it would've been nice to be surprised with something resembling a fresh piece of fruit or vegetable. The flight crew was polite and one of the attendants took pity on us and offered a complimentary shot of whiskey, which partially alleviated the discomfort of the experience. That man is a saint and we surely hope he is better taken care of by this airline than we were. Overall a miserable experience. Will definitely rethink flying both Lufthansa and Air Canada in the future."

Cons: "Flight delayed. Pilot told us we would arrive on time anyway, but we were very late and our luggage did not make the connecting flight."

Pros: "Very friendly staff!"
Cons: "Monitor was very slow and at some moments not working at all (even after restart)"

Pros: "I liked the entertainment part: movies are good, crew was pretty nice"
Cons: "I didnt like the boarding process bacause it wasnt in order, also airplane crew started feeding passangers in 3 hours!!! after we took off. I started thinking that it is not included in my ticket!"

Pros: "I liked the in flight movies"
Cons: "Can't say there was anything I didn't."

Cons: "They lost my luggage. I don't understand why there isn't an arrival scan and how airlines don't take more responsibility for bags"

Pros: "Lufthansa went out of their way to provide a meal accommodating my son's food allergies. I was quite impressed, since it was beyond their standard/listed offerings."

Pros: "Food, very well organized crew"
Cons: "No leg room, long flight"

Pros: "Direct flight, separate spacious toilets, decent food"
Cons: "It's a good flight overall"

Pros: "Very accomdating crew"

Pros: "The flight was smooth"
Cons: "Lufthansa gave us the wrong departure time missed our flight and lost 2 days of our vacation. Didn't get any compensation Except a we will try to get you on another flight at no additional cost. Hmmm for your mistake you act like your doing me a favor! Got yelled at by the rep on the phone I had to tell them to calm down I'm the one stuck in a place I don't know with my family waiting for me in another country. NEVER AGAIN!! Sorry that was horrible service!!!!"

Pros: "I really appreciated the hostesses bringing around glasses of juice or water especially during the night . The selection of movies to watch was excellent. I liked a lot that the restroom was on a different floor and there was plenty of space outside. Thank you."
Cons: "The egg omelette for breakfast was not really tasty. The steward collected the earphones before we landed, a bit too early. I could have watched my movie 10 minutes longer."
