Pros: "Space and cleanness"
Cons: "The same comment as above."
Pros: "I’m very disappointed by the supervisor treatment at the time I was checking in and weighing my luggage. It is very frustrating to see that I was forced to pay US$ 175 for an excess of only 9 Kg. Even after I told him that my other luggage didn’t have the maximum weight he insisted either to throw away my items or pay the amount. The supervisor was ready to either not let to board the flight or leave my luggage. I could have appreciated if either charged only extra 9kgs or move the excess volume to check in luggage that was not full. The supervisor was not ready to listen and he constantly treats me in a disrespectful manner. Given to the mistreatments I had I have vows not to travel with Emirates anymore and also advise my friends and colleagues not to use it. I hope you will use this feedback to improve your customers services."

It is always a joy to fly this airline. Good arrive, beautiful aircraft.

I had a horrible experience booking tickets in kayak. Got cancelled the last minute and had to give a hefty price. No customer support as well.

Cons: "The food could use some work. It is still better than most other airlines but not as good as most high schools.

It would recline on its own which caused constant adjustment throughout the flight."

Cons: "Headrests on quatar airways are uncomfortable , especially for someone who is short and neck gets very stiff"

It’s different compared to Southwest flights. Comfortable seating. Nice staff. Drinks and coffee free.

Old plane. Delayed but no apology. Not great

When we checked in at Calgary- there were only 3 people intially. Then, 2 left and only 1 old man was left. He tried to move through the line, but could not clear us fast enough. About 50 people were stuck and not able to get boarding passes or luggage checked. We missed out flight. The scene was chaotic. Then, those of us who missed the flight were not able to get help as he was now trying to get the next people on the SLC flight through. We were so upset. Poorly run.

The best was the timeliness from JFK to SJU, and the comfortless of the Business Class seats. The worse is their poor choices of meals and beverages (Plate of Quinoa or a plate of Charcuterie). The should put more attention to those details, maybe even give something more generic that most people will love.

Baggage delayed even though both the flights were delayed.

Flew first class - no meal and they didn’t let us know. It was a long flight. Delta first class isn’t really first class

Delta terminal 2 gate 24B would not allow us to board the plane 3 minutes after main2 zone was called. We were forced to take a flight 4 hours later, waiting at the airport. And the female check in lady at the gate was rude and completely unhelpful. Delta service is poor at LAX

The staff was the highlight. Only thing that could have been better was the temperature on the flight from Hawaii to Seattle. The plane was too cold to get comfortable

Pros: "Good snacks, comfortable flight."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic. The seats were very comfortable and the entertainment screen functioned perfectly with a great selection of things to watch."

Pros: "The cinnamon cookies, the in-flight movie selection, and the helpful flight crew helped make this flight not as bad as it could have been."
Cons: "There was an infant in the seat directly behind me that chose to cry and scream through a large part of the flight. The mother of this child did not/was not able to keep the child from crying.

However, this is not an excuse for racist and bigoted behavior from You staff , the plane was 2 hours late, the staff was literally yelling at the passengers because they were standing at the gate assigned to the ticket. And your plane crew was extremely rude, this one flight attendant frowned at my wife's face and starting sanitizing her hand after my wife gave her ticket."
Pros: "Good food, comfortable seat, good timing."
Cons: "Some confusion amongst passengers about their seating."
Cons: "NO ONE IN TURKISH AIRLINES WILL HELP YOU AND WHEN YOU ASK FOR HELP IT BECOMES AN INCONVENIENCE FOR THEM. HERE'S THE STORY, MY FLIGHT WAS 2 HOURS LATE SO WHEN WE LANDED TO CATCH OUR TRANSIT FLIGHT IT WAS ALREADY GONE. SO WHEN WE ARRIVE TO SPEAK TO SOMEONE ABOUT A HOTEL OR FOOD THEY HAND US THIS PAPER AND TOLD US TO GO TO THE HOTEL THAT IS IN THE AIRPORT IT WOULD BE FOR FREE ALONG WITH THE FOOD. WHEN WE GET THERE THEY TOLD US NO, IT IS ONLY FOR BUSINESS TRAVELERS AND WHEN WE EXPLAIN THAT PASSPORT CONTROL SENT US HERE WITH THIS PAPER THEY RESPONDED NO, WE NEED A HOTEL VOUCHER AND WE NEED TO GO BACK. WHEN WE ASK HER TO CALL PASSPORT CONTROL (BECAUSE THEY ARE THE ONES WHO SENT US TO THEM) TO SPEAK TO THEM YOURSELF, SHE SAYS "IT'S NOT OUR PROBLEM" WHICH THEN MADE ME SNAP AT HER AND TELL HER WTF DO YOU MEAN ITS NOT YOUR PROBLEM? YOU WORK HERE!!" SO WHEN I ASK FOR THE MANAGERS NUMBER FOR COMPLAINT SHE GIVES ME A 5 DIGIT NUMBER THAT LOOKS MORE LIKE A ZIP CODE THEN A PHONE NUMBER. THEN WE GO BACK TO PASSPORT CONTROL WHO TOLD US THAT WE WOULD HAVE A FREE HOTEL AND FOOD THEY CHANGED THERE STORY AND DIRECTED US TO PAY FOR A VISA AND PAY FOR A HOTEL OUTSIDE. SO IN THE END THEY GAVE US A BULLSHIT STORY SO THEY CAN GET RID OF US AND HAVE US RUN AROUND WHERE IN THE END WE GAVE UP AND SLEPT IN THE AIRPORT TILL WE GOT HOME. THIS IS WHEN I WAS COMING BACK WITH TURKISH AIRLINES. GOING TO MY PLACE OF DESTINATION THE FLIGHT WAS LATE 4 HOURS AND LUCKILY FOR US WE HAD A LONG LAYOVER THAT WE DIDNT MISS MY FLIGHT GOING TO MY PLACE OF DESTINATION. SO GOING AND RETURNING FLIGHT WAS LATE! WORST EXPERIENCE I EVER HAD!! I WOULD NEVER FLY WITH TURKISH AIRLINES! AND WHILE I WAS THERE FINALLY GETTING READY TO GO HOME A MAN SAT BEHIND ME AND ASKED ME IF I WAS GOING ON THE SAME FLIGHT AS HIM AND I TOLD HIM NO WHICH THEN HE STRIKES UP THE CONVERSATION AS TO HOW TURKISH AIRLINES MADE HIM MISS HIS FIGHT AND GAVE HIM HELL! SO I WAS NOT THE ONLY ONE WITH THIS PROBLEM! IN THE END HE SAID TO ME TURKISH AIRLINES IS GARBAGE! AND I DONT BLAME HIM!! STAFF WAS THE WORST THING TO DEAL WITH AT TURKISH AIRLINES!! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Top notch service on the airplane"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Nice crew. Boarding and deplane was fairly easy and quick."
Cons: "Seats in coach are quite close and became worse when people reclined."
Cons: "Great experience"
Cons: "Ok"
Cons: "Flight was delayed but that wasn't the main problem. Went to the wrong gate for my connecting flight, Turkish air rep at the gate checked my boarding pass, didn't say a word about me being at the wrong gate. Tgere was no announcement of any kind (found out later, Turkish sir doesn't do announcement at the Istanbul airport. No clue as to why). Thought, tgere was another delay and by the time I asked, it was too late to catch my flight and that's when I got a full dose of every single person w Turkish air trying to stiff me with the most outrageous penalty for changing Nguyen my ticket. Started out at $1114 on a $758 ticket, then went down to $925 and if I stay over night, down to $750. Seriously? Rude, talking down at me and telling me that if I don't pay the penalty, my return ticket will be cancelled. I keep getting bounced from one person to another being told to wait here and wait there then I finally got so sick of all of it, bought a new connecting flight online, spending the night in Istanbul and will see what will happen w my return flight to the US. I call this 'theft' as, if i buy an entire new ticket from Istanbul to Cairo then back to the US online, it will cost me less than the penalty they're trying to get me to pay. Shame on you Turkish airline!! You'd think w all the issues they're having w tourism in their country these days they'd care about not doing this kind of mistreatment of their clients."
Cons: "It was unbearably hot on the plane. I was wearing shorts and a tank top and was sweating."
Pros: "The window seat"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Good food. Great service."

Pros: "We were hesitant about flying Turkish Airlines. In the past they have had bad reviews and there had just been the terrorist bombing at the airport. But the flights to Croatia were cheap so we bought. The food was great and plentiful. Staff were very polite. We had a night flight to Istanbul and both my wife an I were able to stretch out in empty middle rows seats and sleep. I would definitely fly them again. They are very underrated."

Cons: "We stayed on plane for long time before it took off, and we arrived late, food was not good"

Ms. Meryam was the rudest human being/ female I met so far! Extremely rude , unprofessionally and very unfriendly Ummi G. Gunturk"
Cons: "I didn't like anything! My seat was broken, didn't move , the seat arm was broken , TV screen was broken and the crew didn't have the curtesy to even bother to upgrade me to a better seat. Instead the dumped me to the second to the last seat all the way in the way which the seat didn't work either. I been on the broken seat with my neck braces around my neck on (due to a neck injury) for 11 hours and the crew didn't give a damn about me!!"

Cons: "The flight boards in Istanbul had two flights leaving for Cairo at the exact same time but at two different gates far from each other. This caused massive confusion and I ended up running around the airport to get to my gate. Also there should not have been a second flight listed on the boards because there was no second flight. Very frustrating..."
Cons: "Food was better in last trip. This time is sandwich"
Cons: "Boarding need to more organized."
Pros: "Komforlu ve nezih bir ucus icin tesekkurler her sey o kadar guzelki ozellikle murettebat cok nazikti"
Cons: "Hic bir sey"

We had no kosher food

Not having 2hr delays would be great

Cons: "Everything went well"
Pros: "The crew on this flight were excellent professional and friendly. They were also very patient. The best part of the trip."
Cons: "The food needs major improvement. What has happened to Lufthansa??? Other people on other flights with Lufthansa complain bitterly about the food. It has gone down hill. People should not be dreaming of Virgin Atlantic food while on a flight with Lufthansa!"
Pros: "Crew brilliant but seat very tight"
Cons: "Boarding procedure slow and hectic"
Cons: "The entertainment"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, entertainment during the long flight was very good."
Cons: "Do not show options with a connecting flight boarding before the first flight has arrived. My family had to run a long distance from our arriving gate to the departing one in the Munich airport, which is not a small one!! Luckily United was holding the plane for us!"
Cons: "Viaje corto"
Pros: "The crew was the best"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "It didn't crash."
Cons: "Food no screaming babies . Comfy seats and armrests,"
Cons: "Delayed flight caused me to miss connection."
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable seat, good food, and food entertainment."
Cons: "Delayed 20 minutes out of Denver, and when I arrived at my connecting city in Munich I was immediately told I would not make my connecting flight due to customs lines and to reschedule. I walked 5 minutes to customs, no lines, walked another 5 minutes to my gate, and easily made the connection."
Pros: "snacks and entertainment"
Pros: "Very amazing"
Cons: "Good"
Pros: "The courteousness of the crew members"
Cons: "Slight delay in boarding"
Pros: "Departure and arrival were timely, staff was courteous and helpfull."
Pros: "All"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Ac leaking water on my head. The seat not working properly, I had push it upright with my own hands to get it to be upright."
Pros: "The staff on board the plane was excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed the flight! Food was delishious!"
Cons: "The ticket kiosk would not read passports. It was so frustrating to have to continuously try over and over again. With no attendant at the location and a long line, I wasn’t sure how to proceed. There were plenty of people having the same difficulty. It took about 12 minutes to occomplish a minut long job."
Pros: "Nice, uneventful, on time flight with adequate food and entertainment. Good seat recline. Good service. Boarding from the back of the plane makes good sense."
Cons: "First time my knees have touched the seat in front of me (I'm 5-10). Not sure how much more airlines can squeeze us in. Good seat recline is great if everyone is reclining, if not you will have someone in your lap. Had to ask person in front of me to not recline during meal. What really bothered me though was paying for a reserved seat and finding out we had been moved to the dreaded back row due to an equipment change. Strongly suggest passenger notification for this move. Was able to re-reserve seats on check in but there were some significant angst when I found out about this mischief."
Pros: "Staff was great."
Cons: "I missed a hot moist towel to refresh my face before I got off of the plane after an 8-hour flight."
Pros: "See above"
Pros: "I always had a great experience with Lufthansa."
Pros: "Nothing this was a nightmare."
Cons: "We missed our connected flight because or flight was delayed... this does not make any sense. If the flight is delayed, there should be proper high priority check in and bus transport implemented so we arrive at our gate on time. Me and the 2 other passengers had zero chance to arrive on time and were at a loss of breath. And i paid for my selected seats to which i am asking for a refund because what happened was unacceptable. When we addressed our concern, the lufthansa employee told us that u cannot have buses for all the passengers in a situation of a delay.... unacceptable.... how is this the client's fault to miss a flight due to a delay?"
Pros: "Breakfast & ease of boarding."
Cons: "United charged me a Bagage fee of 25 dollars and they where not supposed to since it was a international flight. The knowledge of the agent was not very good. Now I will have to write to Lufthansa and hoping they will reemburse me."
Pros: "The takeoff and landing were smooth. The food and service was good."
Cons: "The screen for viewing movies were not functioning all the time"
Pros: "the fact that the flight arrived on time without delay and the gates were easy to locate."
Cons: "How on earth did my i arrived lagos and only one out of my two bags showed up, i have to extend my stay in lagos and hoping my bag will come the next day, i have to pay $100 extra just to extend my one-night hotel booking to two nights. Someone really need to get fired, as i wasn't the only one with the same issue and it has been long going, i only hope my bag shows up"
Pros: "Travel time was good and easy travel"
Cons: "Entertainment tv tapes"
Cons: "My granddaughter of 3 years had painful ear block and the crew was so unfriendly about it unlike other airlines that try to offer remedies. Both legs of the journey the crew was lousy on this. So child unfriendly"
Cons: "I gave up my seat to permit an elderly couple to sit together There was an open aisle seat forward from where I was to sit and was not allowed to sit there, instead I sat i na middle seat One good deed did not another"
Pros: "The crew were excellent and plane was comfortable"
Cons: "The plane was way out of the terminal and I had asked for assistance which I had going and most of coming back until the last part getting on to the plane at Lufthansa no-one came at Birmingham either. I struggled to collect my case and walk through to the exit."
Pros: "Clean and effective communication."
Cons: "Was kept waiting in the plane"
Cons: "Walk from gate extreme"
Pros: "Staff were polite Comfort ok Food was basic No entertainment."
Pros: "The crew made meangry"
Cons: "The air host is rude bcos we are black. He needs training on how to be nicer. He is a racist."
Pros: "Flight attendants friendly and professional. Like the use of warm towels. Most overseas airlines no longer do this"
Pros: "Timing"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Friendly crew, multiple drink services"
Cons: "Waited 40 mins after boarding with no explanation as to why we hadn't moved"
Pros: "First time flying Lufthansa and I had a comfortable and enjoyable experience. The food was quite good and the selection and quality of entertainment was excellent. Best of all, there was plenty of legroom for a long international flight!"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Food overly salty. My "tv" worked poorly, skipped around and couldn't get to previous spot."
Cons: "Ridiculous policy that couldn't get seat until 23 hours in advance, then that wasn't even true. Then misinformed me about what kind of seat I had been assigned. Then insisted I check a bag that did not need to be checked. Then the food was inedible. Flight happened to be late so I missed my connection, and they offered some more misinformation in that regard; There were of course human beings (staff) to deal with, but they had been reduced by Lufthansa's rules and systems so they were just robots, repeating over and over again inflexible policies. Horrible!"
Pros: "Once I got on the plane, everything was fine and easy. The airport drove me crazy and the lack of confirmation on my ticket was more than annoying."
Cons: "The late notification of a change in gate number and the lack of confirmation that I had a reserved seat on the flight. I was kept in suspense right up to the minute I boarded the aircraft. Very nerve wracking."
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Not on time. Lost luggage."
Pros: "No issues"
Pros: "The onboard staff worked throughout the trip taking care of the passengers."
Cons: "The plan was over 4 hours late leaving and we had to board an Airbus 380 with buses. There was never any clear explanation as to why the flight was delayed."
Pros: "I was upgrade to Premium Economy with my family. Kids enjoyed playground areas at Frankfort Main Airport. Very nice and clean installation"
Cons: "Boarding at Frankfurt was a nightmare. All the economy class was pushing and shoving and cutting in front of other people. People were standing outside the line and putting their tickets on the entry system and the attendants were doing nothing to stop them or tell them to go to the end of the line. When left from Chicago to Frankfurt they seated you by rows and this was much more efficient. All flights should board by some system vs. just everyone trying to go at once."
Cons: "The in flight entertainment was slightly inadequate."
