Pros: "Crew we're friendly and helpful. Seats were good."
Cons: "Old plane so in-flight entertainment systems didn't work properly in 3 of the 4 seats we occupied."
Cons: "The crew was good, but the attentiveness of the crew on the second leg was amazing"
Pros: "Good food. Professional crew. and overall good experience for a 15.5 hour flight."
Cons: "Again, If you allow people to choose tickets online and they pick the front row, at least don't put them in the back row. That is the opposite of what they requested. After a.long flight and the limited recline, I am very sore in my back. Probably the most uncomfortable flight to date in my travels."
Cons: "I am an Emirates skywards member and I was placed in the middle seat when my preference on Emirates and Kayak is an aisle seat. After boarding it was explained to me that I couldn’t move to an aisle seat even though more than one seat was available. I asked to pay or to use miles I have accrued."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Flight attendants could have been nicer. Seats were not that comfortable."
Cons: "Delayed flight and the procedures took very long."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Food was good. Seat wasn’t bad."
Cons: "Price should be a little less, comparable to that of Qatar Airways."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The screens should be replaced with new High quality ones."
Pros: "The crew was awesome, seating is never comfortable for a long flight."
Cons: "I do not recall any plane departing the dock on time. All Airlines need to work on boarding quicker and leaving on time."
Cons: "Food is ok but can be improved."
Pros: "New plane, 380 i think, so everything worked well"
Cons: "This seem kaotic, people don't listen, staff send over it"
Cons: "My husband showed up at the airport but they didn’t let him go to flight because it’s one way ticket. We called but no any help."
Pros: "The seats in economy at least had TVs"
Cons: "After 4+ hours sitting on the plane we never even left San Francisco. The Emirates plane was less than standard in economy class and we weren’t even offered water for the entire time we waited. The customer service was terrible and we weren’t even able to retrieve our carry on bags that we were forced to check (not due to the size). This was by far the worst first time experience I’ve had and will not be flying Emirates again."
Pros: "On board crew personable and trying to do a good job. No one on the ground seems to have a clue."
Cons: "Boarding is shambolic - no signs, no announcements, no disciplined queuing system. Business class sears old-fashioned, not horizontal, uncomfortable. Impossible to get to first class lounge until the Emirates desk opens (we had a 5-hour wait before we could go to security as we couldn’t go through until the desk opened to take checked luggage. They appear unfamiliar with boarding passes on the phone - wanted paper ones."
Cons: "The Hyderabad emirates ground staff was very rude and incompetent to perform the job. The airline staff was was not so friendly either"
Pros: "The AIC technology"
Cons: "We was late in departure Very baD crew Very small meals its like a snack I thought Emirates airline is the best but i changed my mind !!! Sadly"
Cons: "It was over booked No option to upgrade even though I had more than enough air miles"
Pros: "A footrest would make the flight perfect."
Cons: "No footrest. Legs got tired. Felt like lifting them up."
Cons: "Was not told that my luggage was on a weght system and not a piece system for a n international flight. I ended up paying $249 for my extra suitcase that weighted 25 lbs and it was only a 2.5 hour flighr!"
Pros: "I like food and spacious seats, make journey comfort"
Cons: "TV movies were outdated,"
Cons: "Worse food Old flight Late boarding"
Pros: "The service was good."
Cons: "Food was horrible."
Cons: "Seats are less spacious for me since I’m 6 feet tall"
Pros: "Professionalism of flight and ground crew. Movie & entertainment selection. Overall cleanliness of aircraft. Better comfort due to wider seating."
Cons: "The fact that this was the shortest flight of my trip - Wish my journey started this way."
Cons: "I haven't got onto the flight you stupid twerps."
Cons: "I specifically booked my flight with emirates as I prefer their service,food,staff,seating and entertainment and was instead told once I arrived at Auckland airport that we were instead flying with qantas . Not impressed that we received no email or contact to inform us of this beforehand . The service itself from qantas was not bad but again some sort of notice would have been nice ."
Pros: "service cleanliness of washrooms Food seating availability"
Pros: "seating availability Food service"
Pros: "Flying with Emirates is always great."
Pros: "Crew was bored, never smiled, obviously not Enjoying their jobs. Food was no better than any other airline, Which means it wasn’t very good. My small carry-on bag was 2 pounds overweight so they made me check it, they weigh every bag. We were looking forward to our flight because we had been told by several people that emirates Airline was special… It was not."
Cons: "it was late and it was not informed until we all sat."
Pros: "on the plane the service was okay"
Cons: "The flight was overbooked, barely got in. At the gate they checked carry on baggage weight and charged extra. They could have done it during check in.... pathethic"
Pros: "Better food Meals were bland"
Pros: "Compared to the cattle car feeling of many airlines today, Emirates feels like gracious luxury and hospitality, and that's for economy class. I will try to fly with them as much as I can. First rate experience. Very good ticket price and a convenient non-stop route- unlike some low fares that want to add hours and hours to your travel by routing you through the home country of the airline. Great entertainment choices. Some TV functionality issues for a seatmate, but he was able to change seats. cabin crew was multinational, multilingual, and warm and professional. It reminded me of the way air travel used to be."
Pros: "Seamless flight with usual high standrd of on-board service and food"
Pros: "Same as above. If I make this trip again I would only fly Emirates. Have told everyone how wonderful my flights were."
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "Reservation and boarding process are good. The condition of the aircraft is excellent. Onboard service is also good."
Cons: "The taste of food served was far below standard. I had hard time eating their food. Emirates used to serve better food in the past but in recent time the quality has worsen."
Pros: "Everything was very nice,, one of the nicer flights i have had in a long time and i fly often,, it didnt hurt that the flight was nearly empty,, so i had basically the whole section in the back to myself,, aside from that, the seating was comfortable and more roomy than others,, and the entertainment system was quite nice,, good sound,, larger hd screen and wide selection of programming,, also very convenient inputs for powering up"
Cons: "the bathroom smelled like pee and i was the first one to use it on the flight,, so perhaps some better cleaning maintenance and some type of air freshener"
Pros: "We started with a 45 min wait on the tarmac before takeoff. Then spent 14h listening to screaming children. Now, I know that isn't the airlines fault, but it would be nice to see where children are sitting when booking on such a long flight! Once we landed, the girl next to me got sick and when I flagged a flight attendant, she simply told me there's a barf bag in the seat pocket - there wasn't - so I had to part the crowd to get that lady to a bathroom. Then it took 45 min to get off the plane! The food was okay and there was plenty to watch (couldn't read due to screaming children). It was a really rough flight."
Pros: "Granted I was tired after being in transit for 24 hours, but this final of 4 long-haul flights was a real bummer compared to the other flights. Boeing 777 packed to 100% capacity."
Cons: "Really cramped and squished compared to other flights. Toilets at DXB were filthy (I searched around for the cleanest, which was still disgusting), with the cleaning attendant standing around in the restroom doing nothing. Duty Free shops really expensive compared to European airports. Meal on board (breakfast) was really terrible (and that taking into account that airline breakfast is always bad), really the worst I've ever had on a plane, even the Croissant was chewy and very dry. Emirates has become a massive sausage machine people-mover. It has loss its finesse and exceptional service."
Pros: "Overall service and food was nice."
Cons: "My daughter was sick and they gave us a hard time for a wheel chair and asked unnecessary questions at the counte despite explaining that both me and my husband are physicians and know that it was safe for her to travel."
Pros: "Comfortable cabin, attentive crew, if somewhat aloof. Food okay, but better than a 2 ounce package of salty pretzel mix for $3! All in all, quite good."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind."
Boarding process was not announced.
Better choice of sandwiches
Boarding this big airplane by bus is crazy. Frankfurt airport has super long lines
My original flight was canceled and rebooked which I understood. The second flight was canceled without notification. The customer service rep would not allow me to fly into another airport due to a hurricane in my destination city. He also hung up the phone on me when I requested to speak with someone in the refund department.
Short flight. No food, no entertainment. Airport very busy but moved quickly.
Mentioned previously. By a chain of events Lufthansa started, I and my family we treated as fodder; not customers.
Flight got canceled and caused a lot of issues. I was stuck in Frankfurt for several hours without any help from Lufthansa personell. They weren’t qualified or couldn’t/ didn’t want to provide help. After my flight was canceled the Lufthansa train was canceled too. After hours a DB employee provided a new train ticket and connection. Lufthansa was not involved in solving the issues they caused.
Cons: "Your crew didn't smile. They didn't seem very happy. The food was ok, but different from normal American cuisine. I didn't appreciate the crew's comments to some of my fellow passengers about how they we wouldn't eat the food. I would have liked to have been offered more to drink. Additionally I'm glad the crew is fond of one another, but they were loud and distracting. They were nicer to one another than the people flying. I didn't like being barked at and being given confusing directions regarding exiting the plane. Overall I wasn't impressed and would prefer to not fly with your airline again."
Pros: "Premium class is awesome. Nice size and comfortable seats with a foot rest. Food as tasty and hot. Attentive attendants."
Cons: "Honestly can’t think of anything!!"
Pros: "Never made it on this fliggt due to previous flight was delayed. Im stuck in London as of now. Never booking with kayak again"
Cons: "Lufthansa lost my luggage. Still waiting in my hotel."
Pros: "I was on exit place so there were a lot of room space. Flight was only 1 hour."
Cons: "My luggage did not arrive on the flight from Frankfort to Athens. The Lost Luggage staff was very helpful, but the process took a long, long time. Then when my luggage arrived the next morning, no one was staffing the Gold kiosk, so it took another hour and a half to get my luggage. (We had received an email saying that the luggage would be available at 7:30; no one was there to provide it to us)"
Pros: "Upgraded to Economy Plus for more legroom. Very worth it for an 8-hour flight"
Cons: "I missed somehow the distribution of headsets, and I never got one (after asking for one). (Un-)fortunaltely there was no movie I really wanted to watch, or classical music for my taste (recitals, chamber music). Anyway, this is not a major problem, just a tiny glitch. The random boarding went surprisingly well, although I'd prefer the more structured version. Until there is bread, butter and cheese, I am fine with the bland food."
Cons: "My baggage didn't come on time. I have to stay at the airport for additional 3h"
Pros: "Everything worked."
Cons: "Boarding was unnecessarily complex due to poorly trained staff. Flight was late missed my connecting flight. Airline collected fee for advanced seat selection and did not refund when the connecting flights missed."
Pros: "Lots of space....very comfortable seat."
Cons: "Can’t think of a thing."
Pros: "Very comfortable, amazing crew and service. Entertainment was very good with lots of options."
Pros: "Everything was on time, the service was very nice as well. No problems at all."
Pros: "Over crowded"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Everything is on tine"
Cons: "Food is very disappointing"
Cons: "In economy class, seats are packed tight"
Cons: "I was unable to make a pre-flight meal selection. Lufthansa customer service indicated I would have vegan options on board. Not the case."
Cons: "Late one hour. Apparently equipment failure"
Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "I had to pay extra because I didn't know that Lufthansa only allows one piece of luggage for international passengers, unlike most of their competition. Cost me $375 extra!!!"
Pros: "Luftahnsa is great. I can’t seem to get our system to recognize the two Condor is abysmal"
Pros: "You can't beat the German's at efficiency. Awesome!"
Cons: "Houston isn't their hub and I have to put up with United."
Pros: "Everyone are friends"
Cons: "Flight delayed by about an hour"
Cons: "My entertainment screen did not work even after being reset twice. And the flight was too full to move."
Cons: "Great customer service!"
Pros: "Standard Lufthansa short haul, Crew attentive"
Cons: "arrived off stand"
Cons: "Very bad customer experience, the seat are very uncomfortable, and they stole money from my hand bag after sending it to the plane cargo"
Pros: "Smooth flight , excellent crew"
Cons: "Entertainment was boring , screens freez and small"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very kind and attentive. Our flight was delayed twice, once in Frankfurt for late luggage and the ground crew left without pushing back the plane, then again in Seattle for a plane on the tarmac on fire. A 10 hour flight turned into 14 hours but I still enjoyed it. There was plenty of leg room and the seats were very comfortable. The entertainment was very enjoyable and the meals were satisfying. For such a long haul Lufthansa made the time flyby."
Cons: "The crying baby a couple rows back. Also some smelly passengers that have poor hygiene."
Pros: "Had a negative impression after previous flight a few years ago. However my opinion has changed. The new aircraft was very comfortable and liked the toilets being below deck."
Cons: "In flight announcements not loud enough and did not come over the headphones."
Pros: "Service was good, boarding was fast, no other issues."
Cons: "The seat pitch is inhumane. I could barely fit into the seat without hitting my knees on the seat in front. And that was before the person ahead of me reclined. It's not like Lufthansa is a budget airline. It's a full-fledged major carrier charging full-fledged prices. Seriously, I was expecting more."
Pros: "It was nice to have both a dinner served in a timely manner, the additional option of drink offered and the snack before arrival. Staff working the flight were polite and friendly. Thank you for providing both a blanket and pillow - which its own Lufthansa pillow cover. Sadly the Anticipation of a Lufthansa flight still rests on the laurels of years of recognized quality. Sadly the Anticipation was greater than the rewards."
Cons: "It is always so much easier to come up with the issues - wish I had more to add on the previous section. ENTERTAINMENT. Headphones provided required a two-prong jack option. There was only room for one prong - so only one ear had sound. The sound perhaps due to this limitation was poor and I couldn't hear the track. Consequently I choose one film with subtitles - which was helpful. The cabin comfort overall was on the chilly side and required the use of the blanket for the whole trip. Meals - the dinner meal served was a nice selection. However, the dessert was still cold - affected flavor. I think a nice bar of chocolate would have been equally welcome as dessert option. There was a small Ritter - which was nice. Lunch or pre arrival snack - really a poor excuse for what was served as pizza. Very doughy and little filling. The tomato was ok but the other selection served - was not a good choice. Not sure what it was. Also had anticipated a warm cloth before landing as a refresher. The seating is incredibly narrow. While most planes are forced into less space, this ride was particularly uncomfortable. I know that there are different model planes each with its own space limitations, advantages or disadvantages, but - frankly, I had expected better from Lufthansa. Finally, by chance having flown to Europe by Swiss Air - I reluctantly have to say that their comfort level, meals and refreshing cloth made it a more comfortable flight."
Pros: "Flughts departed and arrived on time, food was impressive, flight attendants were friendly and attentive and good on-board entertainment"
Pros: "Upgraded after a terrible flight out. This was much better. The food was better. The seats reclined like normal economy seats in domestic flights. Lufthansa definitely knows how to make economy seats uncomfortable."
Pros: "Good variety in vegan choices."
Cons: "Please add pickle if possible."
Cons: "Flight repeatedly delayed and then cancelled due to United technical issues. Was rebooked on another carrier, but United couldn't get our baggage back to us in time to make that flight thanks to the absolute circus that ensued at the gate. 9:55am flight turns into a night at the airport hotel with vouchers that would only allow us to eat from the horrible buffett (ordering off the hotel menu was not covered). Put on same flight the follow day. Wait for it.... Delayed again (no weather). Would never have booked a flight with United in the first place due to similar issues in the past , but got duped when I booked this Luftansa flight and found out after the fact that it was operated by United. Never again, again."
Cons: "Waited for 5 hours, and then rerouted to Houston"
