Discourteous airhostess on the jetblue flight from JFK to Tampa Emirates service was very good

Discourteous airhostess on the jetblue flight from JFK to Tampa Emirates service was very good

Flight was okay. Flight was fully packed and crew service was slow

The plane was really old. There was no monitor Infront of seats. The speaker that played the voice of crew and captain was broken and noisy. We could hardly understand what they were saying and that was something definitely obvious for them. It was kind of disrespectful when they saw such an obvious annoying problem and not trying to solve it. I really felt angry.

It was really excellent!I suggest everyone should try Kayak.

Pros: "excellent crew, helped me through my nerves about flying"
Cons: "would have loved to sit upstairs in the bar area."
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Marco was a great crew member, handled the sick child like a pro"

Cons: "Wrong communication for connecting flights. Poor customer service, flight attendants not friendly."
Pros: "All was good."
Pros: "The crew is great . Service excellent"
Cons: "During checkin process they weighed my laptop bag along with my hand baggage a small suitcase. Laptop is considered as personal item. The combined weight exceeded 7 kg and hence I had pay for excess baggage even though my checked in Baggage were close correct 23 kg limit. This was an issue with most"
Pros: "Service & caring were superb"
Cons: "The snack was served not good and eatable. Emirates like one of leading air lines could have been served a better food. If it is cost cutting effort to serve a very basic snack like this, customers will be finding other air lines in the future."
Pros: "The crew.. And the quality of the aircraft. Plus the on time departure and arrival was fantastic"
Cons: "The TV show collection was a bit of a letdown"
Cons: "Intertainment"
Pros: "The comfort and smooth boarding procedure"
Cons: "Good"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for an already tight connection in Dubai. We paid for extra leg room only to be seated by the toilets to watch people throwing up most of the flight. Those same people did not get on the connecting flight and so Emirates managed to take our bags off as well, so we end up in London for a months stay with no luggage. Promises that it will arrive before midnight not kept and currently still waiting for bags to arrive."
Pros: "I have never been in a flight where a handful of small children were able to make so much noise. There was one 4 year old that talked so loud for ten hours that not even my headphones could drown him out. Not once did any of the parents tell these kids to use their inside voice"
Pros: "Footrest would be good for a long haul flight."
Pros: "I liked that there was live TV available on this flight."

Pros: "There was pretty much nothing I didn't like. Everything was great, including the Business Class Lounge in Dubai. The service was great, the staff was very pleasant, the comfort of the seats was unmatched."
Cons: "I remarked that the entertainment was OK, only because I have seen most of the movies and tv shows that were available, the response time for the buttons between the remote and the view screen was sometimes slow, and of course, the WiFi, I'm sure, will be improved with time."
Pros: "Good flight and easy transfer."
Cons: "Bad smell - probably somebody had vomited on a previous flight"

Pros: "Timing, service, comfort"

Pros: "Comfortable. Good food."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess."
Pros: "The food was great. Flight attendants were nice and polite."
Cons: "Flight 123 Dubai-Istanbul was cancelled due to weather conditions in Istanbul. Emirates put us on a new flight, we were waiting in queu for 30 min, and my queu wouldn't move because of one passenger. I asked the person in charge, if it will take another 30 min, I should go to another queu (because the other two queus already finished with lines up longer. ) the guy said nothing. I was next in line and when my turn arrived, I asked for a similar seat or something at the window, he give me an angry look and give me seat 50B on EK121. That is the last seat next to the toilet. I adked him to change and give me somthing else because I have medical condition and easily get nauseau if I sit toward e end, he said, that is it ma'am. I repeated to him my request and medical conditon, he turned his face away and said next person in line! There were at least 50 more passengers booked after me and 50 more seats available, he intentioanlly gave me the seat I asked not to be given just because while standing in line I asked him, why the line up hadnt moved an inch in 30 minutes. This is a very un professional behaviour and unacceptable behaviou. I had never before had such uncomfortabel flight in my life. I had nauseau during the whole flight!"
Pros: "On time and cheap flight"
Pros: "By far the best airline, from service to quality, all around awesome."

Pros: "comfortable"
Pros: "I liked the seat and leg space comforts even at economy class."

Cons: "The flight was little crowded but over all it was OK the food service was late and meal was delivered one hour late"

Pros: "Liked the Customer Service, Flight, neatness, entertainment and food"
Pros: "To start with, the friendliness of the handling crew. They couldn`t be any better. I haven`t any better words to describe them. Friendly. Make you feel good, even if you are 76 yearsold like me. Bravo young ladies, BRAVO, and Bravo to the Emirates company. I know with whom to fly from now on. Thank you!!!"
Cons: "There was nothing to dislike. Everything was perfect."

Cons: "To put more employee for the arrival"
Cons: "The seat"

Pros: "the crew were so friendly. the food was good."
Pros: "What we liked about this flight was, for such a short flight you get a meal. Staff on board were great also."
Cons: "Our grievance is with ground crew at BEY airport and AMM. 1 piece of lugagge was left in AMM though it was checked connecting from our previous flight. Upon arrival we were told they would contact us. After a long back and forth as we did not have a local number, they tried to dismiss us by saying someone would whatsapp us to let us know when the luggge has arrived. SPOILER ALERT: they never did. We insisted on finding out more and after being pressed they admitted they had received a note from AMM airport that the piece of luggage would arrive in the next flight (5 hours later). We returned later on and found we needed a special permit at BEY airport, only the person on the piece of luggage was allowed back in. Upon receiving the permit, staff continued to press for a name of who confirmed the luggage was there, we told them they had confirmed earlier. I was allowed inside and found the piece of luggage still on the belt though the flight had landed 3 hours earlier and the carousel was being used for another flight. Apparently they don’t bother to check or act on the messages until the end of the day. Finally, we had to argue to be compensated and received $30 USD for our troubles even though they should have offered this as standard practice."
Pros: "Very spacious and new aircraft from MEA. What’s more, the captain landed the plane exceptionally smoothly but that’s no surprise from coming from that airline."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Boarding..no priority for families with small babies"
Pros: "Food."
Cons: "Some of the MEA checking in staff are rude and unprofessional. Some of the MEA Stewardesses are also very rude. Lebanon is known for its superb services in its hotels and restaurants, however, this is not reflected on its airlines services which is below average. Here are some of what the MEA need to do: 1. Allow ticketed travelers to evaluate MEA’s staff performance during their checking in process and on-board services, 2. Facilitate fast track lane at passport control rather than making business travelers wait sometimes 50 minutes to leave or come through passport control 3. Work with passport control management to improve the communication skill of passport control staff who mostly behave as if they are doing the travelers a favor for processing their passport immigration services. If tourism is important to Lebanon the above points need to be addressed. Hope these notes will help."

Only thing was tsa lines was a little confusing and Long delta was excellent

We took forever to leave the gate and take off, delayed for an hour without explanation. And I did not get the upgrade to Delta One from the Prim Select I was in. Let’s hope for a better return home.

Give complimentary earphones to use entertainment

More professional

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.

Baggage delayed even though both the flights were delayed.

Cons: "Socially distancing worked well on the plane because the middle seats are not occupied, snacks are bagged and the head flight attendant was funny and gave an inspirational message on the PSA at the gate and when we landed."
Pros: "Pilots kept us abreast of timing and upcoming turbulence"
Cons: "The seat back screen was broken, but the screen itself was always on, so in addition to no entertainment, I couldn’t even have darkness"

Pros: "Crew was awesome"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "No food, late by hour"

Pros: "Crew and entertainment options were great."
Cons: "Cabin was very loud, with jet engine noise. Could not block it out. Seats were not comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 75 min because the plane wouldnt start. A differernt aircraft was needed to resume ops."
Pros: "I didn't realize there was a 20 hour transit time in Portland. Delta wanted $330 to change the tickets. I could buy a new Delta ticket for $179. Bought a new Alaska Air ticket for $107"
Cons: "Trying to get an answer to this problem"
Pros: "Everything else was okay"
Cons: "We arrived late & the connecting flight was far away got there with door closed 10 minutes before they left. But wouldn't let us on another 3 or 4 passengers. Needless to say are pre paid ride to the Cove we missed and we probably miss our dinner t 6to 7"
Pros: "I liked that I was able to check my carry-on to for free"
Cons: "I hated the seat and zone that I was assigned. I was literally the last seat in the back and also the very last person to board and get off the plane. It was terrible. Please select better seats for customers"
Pros: "We landed safely - crew was nice enough."
Cons: "Heard one crewmember make snarky comment about another passenger (A stranger). Had to wait on the ground for about 30 min for 6 crewmembers that “needed” to be in MN. Yeah, that was awesome with a 2 yo and 4 yo..."
Pros: "Super friendly flight crew."
Pros: "I love the in-flight movies!"
Cons: "This wasn't pertaining to the flight or airline; but the TSA line was ridiculously slow."
Cons: "767-400 with the old entertainment system. small screen with poor quality and a number of people's had to be reset multiple times."
Pros: "My original flight from MSP to Grand Forks had the nicest pilot that went above and beyond his duties on and off aircraft."
Cons: "Switched planes 3 times, Gates 4 times and little communication on what to expect now, and moving forward. Ended up delayed on jetway 90 minutes before returning to gate to be switched on and off planes for 4 hours Also Delta broke my suitcase in 4 spots I will be contacting delta about this horrible experience!!!"
Cons: "could not check in on line as you did not give us the confirmation of the carrier we used which was not west jet the one you booked us through. You need to fix this problem for us to use you again"
Pros: "Almonds as a snack. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "No entertainment and my table was broken. The air from the vents was also colder. Not much leg room and I have short legs."
Pros: "The crew as well as the pilot gave a lot of information to the customer due to a delay of 10min. Very professional. The pilot even said good bye in person to the customers leaving the plane, I really appreciated it :) The whether conditions in Seattle were very bad (windy, bumpy, rain, and night) and the pilot landed the plane as a pro! Thank you!"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing. Delta is the best airline in North America"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and had great humor."
Pros: "The boarding process in Atlanta was as smooth as could be expected given that it was a full flight. I appreciated the gate announcer's suggestions to everyone about how to ease the overhead baggage crunch."
Cons: "Economy is very tight quarters."
Pros: "Snack choices updated aircraft"
Cons: "No entertainment options"
Cons: "There was a kid screaming on both flights and t was not a good time"
Cons: "Seats are too close."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Seats too close. Food lacks salads. Fruit salad tasteless--fruit not ripe--looks good, but no taste."
Pros: "For once the food was good"
Cons: "Screaming out of control children. Parents not caring that their children were constantly running up and down the aisles. Crew unable or unwilling to intervene."
Pros: "The flight was very comfortable and quick. I like the coffee when I pair it with a biscoff."
Cons: "The boarding process seems a bit chaotic, but it didn't really detract from the overall experience."
Pros: "The plane was not very full and I was selected to move be from row 30 to row 16. All seats in that row were empty. That was very nice."
Cons: "One hour late after a stay over already 4 hours."
Pros: "Good heads up to turbulence."
Pros: "Delta auto-booked me so I didn't have that worry once I arrived in Atlanta."
Cons: "Their system gives too-short layovers so any delay at the point of origin means a risk of missing connections. Many people on my flight were worried about connections because Delta delayed our start by over 30 minutes to "change a switch," whatever that means. Then for passengers with short connection times, they should NEVER be seated in the rear of the plane when it takes 20-30 minutes for the rear-seated passengers. Not very consumer-oriented."
Pros: "The Delta planes on both legs were comfortable and the crew very pleasant."
Cons: "The check in lines were chaotic and I had already checked in online. I just needed to drop off my baggage, so to save time due to my early flight I paid more for the curbside check-in."
Pros: "Good flight, professional people."
Pros: "Pretty much nothing related to the entertainment system... It is nice that you can play movies for free over WiFi on your phone or tablet (since the in-seat system simply didn't work...), but, bizarrely, the WiFi movie selection was different from (and substantially smaller than) the seat movie selection. What's that about? And the WiFi movie scheme is way more painful than it needs to be, requiring you "check out" movies using your web browser, then switch to a separate app to actually watch the movies. Clearly the product of a company mindset whose ONLY concern is "can we check some box", with absolutely no interest in "how can we delight our customers?""
Cons: "So we get the same entertainment system all these flights use: some ghastly totally non-optimized Linux setup that was rebooted three times during the flight, took 20 minutes for each reboot, and never worked correctly after any of the reboots. (The only movie my system would ever play was the very first one, and none of the on-screen controls worked. The seat next door could choose multiple movies, but each movie froze after 40 minutes). The amazing thing is: why don't they just install a damn iPad mini or Android equivalent in the back of each seat? Would be lighter than what they have today and would work FAR better. You'd need some co-ordinating/provisioning software to provide for OTA announcements and movie updates, but basically it's not that hard... At the very least, hire a Linux-head to optimize your startup scripts! It's just sad to see this 20 minute startup process (all dumped on the screen) with its constant repetition of time-wasting startup steps that just generate errors on this plane's particular hardware setup..."
Pros: "Arriving"
Cons: "Cramped seats, poor food, inattentive flight attendants"
Cons: "Several hours was added to my travel day when my Calgary to Seattle flight was cancelled and I was rerouted from Calgary to Vancouver to Seattle. It seems to me that if an airline initiated change that significant occurs, I should have an option given me to change my itinerary."
Pros: "Sits are very comfortable and the food is amazing."
Cons: "The door from the US plane was closed in front of our nose and the staff was extremely rude.In Boston the Turkish Airlines representative from the luggage transfers didn't have a clue what he's doing. It was a complete disaster. So, the 1:10hrs between Cluj and Istambul is not enough for an US flight. You guys must schedule more time so people can get to the US plane on time. The Airline is amazing, good food, good crew, great sits, but please work on this schedule because it's so exhausting to stay an additional 11 hours on the road."
Cons: "My bag was lost"
Pros: "On time, friendly, good food"
Pros: "Crew and flight itself was great."
Cons: "As expected, the plane and seats were okay (borderline mediocre). The food wasn't enough and the choices (rather the lack of) were poor. The seats could be better and not particularly comfortable for a long haul flight."
Pros: "Professional nice food"
Cons: "Trip delay"
Pros: "Entertainment options good"
Pros: "Food and service is excellent. Istanbul lounge is great."
Cons: "Delayed in both directions. Happens. But zero announcements. Zero. Staff didn't know what was going on. Complete chaos."
Pros: "Largely pain free experience"
Pros: "The crew was really friendly and responsive. Boarding was easy and hassle free because Business class passengers had to go through a seperate gate to board."
Cons: "The food was OK, especially the appetizer as it was all cheese and since I dont like cheese, I rate it poor. The inflight entertainment was good but there was a lack of choices in music and tv shows."
Pros: "Food"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good food"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Inflight service was good."
Cons: "Seat was a little uncomfy"
Pros: "Plane clean, newish. Went up, took us there, landed."
Cons: "The food - I always have a v-meal - is sadly inadequate. Not enough of it, and very unimaginative. And they always supply the same thing, unless I was just unlucky to have the same thing three times in a row. The entertainment system kept dropping playback, (crashing) so I would have to restart playing the video. Something similar happened on another Turkish flight."
Cons: "Totally desorganized boarding, wrong door on ticket, no priority line....just not the way you expect things done by Turkish Airlines"
Pros: "Nothing Really Nothing"
Cons: "1. Flight late from Berlin to Istanbul. 2. That's mean missing my next flight from Istanbul to Riyadh. 3. I add extra baggage in TKL Airport : my original bag is 23 kg I have until 32kg, The extra baggage was 20kg, So I pay 247 Euro each extra kg 19 Euro. 4. In Istanbul airport they said your next flight tomorrow at 20pm. 5. I have important meeting in morning and my jop in the evening. 6. They changed my teket from turkish airline to Saudi airline 4.00pm, That's mean no different. 7. I ask about my baggage in turkish airline deck they said don't worry every thing will be okay. 8. I ask for hotel they said you have to make visa cost 60 dollars and you know I have to pay taxi and Chang money... Pla Pla, Actually this is not respecting and very bad organization. 9. I didn't make visa and stay from that time until 3.pm in primum lungs. 10. I went to Saudi airline deck to take my boarding. 11. They said you have extra baggage, I explain them that I payed already to turkish airline. 12. They said you have to go back to turkish airline deck about this extra kg's. 13. I did going back to them they said we cannot do anything, leave one bag here and we send the other one later. Actually this stupid airline and this stupid employee's dealing with me like a stupid, all my time I walk every where in that stupid airport, they just gives me orders and I have to follow like it was my mistake. 14. I showed my alfursan membership to Saudi airline deck and they helped me. 15. When I arrived to Riyadh my baggage wasn't there, this is mean that this stupid turkish people that the have to work on barbcue and haircut, but airports jop needs professional people. That's was my first and last flight with them."

Pros: "Comfortable, on time and as always good service from Turkish Airlines"
Pros: "E"
Cons: "The food was a far miss to my other flight from BBK to Istanbul . I know it was a different flight also being a bit tired after other flight did not help . Otherwise the were excellent ."

Cons: "The worst airline I have ever flown with, worst disruption management"
Pros: "There is simply nothing to like. Whilst other airlines give peoooe a nice hotel room to spend the night on their trunk flights, Turkish airlines offers."
Cons: "I didn’t like anything not least the fact you make people wait in the station when they are on flights with stops. It Morocco offers a plush hotel room. I’m never travelling"
Pros: "Well looked after from start to finish!"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Cons: "They made us wait for 2 hours out in the open on a winter night. They wouldn't let us in the terminal. It was outrageous. Everyone was extremely rude."
Pros: "Another excellent business class service from the team at Turkish Airlines. The food offering was high quality, and the little cultural influences made it an enjoyable experience."
Cons: "The cabin design is perhaps looking a little dated and tired compared to some of its business class competitors. This was also true of comparing the 3 flights I had on a Boing 777 model versus one of the short haul legs on a more modern Airbus."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "At gate sign advertised their lie flat beds in business.. we were on business. No lie flat beds!"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Would highly recommend"
Pros: "Generally better than other European airlines particularly BA and better priced"
Cons: "Work to do on consistency with crew"
Pros: "All is good"
Pros: "Facilities are really nice"
Cons: "I only got one boarding pass at the check in."
Pros: "The crew were accommodating, we departed on time, the inflight food was good and the entertaiment was varied."
Cons: "The leg room was a bit limited on long flight."
Pros: "Business class cabin in the 777 was really spacious. Flight wasn’t full so I also had two seats to myself. Onboard chef was a beautiful touch and food was also delicious. Seats comfortable and IFE good."
Cons: "Heathrow T2 Business class checkin wasn’t clearly signed from entrance. If someone was next to me I would not have enjoyed not having aisle access. Water should be served more regularly without having to ask."
Pros: "Large screens, reusable dishes + silverware"
Cons: "Plane was old, felt more squished and the seats did not decline. Also very note."
Pros: "Food was great."
Cons: "Long waits, poor communication, either too warm or too cold"
Pros: "I am a disabled passenger. Turkish look after me well."
Cons: "No complaints. Good service"
Pros: "Entertaiment was good with choices on the latest movies and live sports channels. Boarding was fast enough and the crew are friendly."
Cons: "The seats are not able to be lowered and for a 11.5hrs flight, thats really painful. Food wasnt really tasty and portion seems smaller compare to other flights i had been on."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I liked the overall plane journey."
Cons: "Flight was delayed which caused us to miss our connection flight."
Pros: "Everything was well taken care of."
Cons: "When boarding the flight from Turkey, to Mumbai , we had to climb up the ladder with our hand luggage.Being senior citizen and traveling in Busniss class was very hard for us."
Pros: "Everything went well apart from my suitcase been lost on the connecting flights to Ercan."
Cons: "Eight hours waiting for a connecting flight at Istanbul airport."
Pros: "Great service in the airplane plus they offer some amenities like slippers, tooth paste and toothbrush, they offer you wet towels to clean and refresh yourself during he flight. Really good."
Cons: "Not enough movie varities."
Cons: "They didn't have my special meal"
Pros: "Good comfort, staff friendly and smiling. Passport control, security and boarding were straightforward."
Cons: "No boarding pass available online in advance for flights from Nicosia (neither electronic nor printed). Only to be collected at the airport. As a result , although I had no hold luggage (only cabin bag), I had to queue at the check-in/drop-baggage desk to obtain my boarding pass! This is the old prehistoric system dating back to the last century."
Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Ordered veggie meal didn't turn up!"
Pros: "Crew and efficiency"
Cons: "Too hot in the plain"
Pros: "Food okay"
Cons: "TV/Movie/music were not working. The temperature in the plane was very hot throughout flight."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "The issue of excess baggage. Would appreciate to buy on line before my flight so that I know how much to carry and also that I am covered before leaving home. Payment at the airport may be too costly as well as unreasonable. It's like a penalty for having excess luggage. This is the reason I prefer flying with EMIRATES because they afford me to but pay fir excess luggage before my departure. Planning ahead is key"
Pros: "Extras provided - eye mark, socks etc"
Cons: "My seat was unable to recline. My husband and I were moved to a middle aisle (although we really didn't want to share) only to find that the foot rest at my foot rest was also faulty. It was an uncomfortable flight"
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment was good and the flight attendants were very nice. They offered us small sandwiches and drinks during the flight so it was comfortable to fly with them."
Cons: "You need to buy a visa if you want to enter the country and they only accept USD, Euros or GBP. The only currency exchange is on the other side of passport control so you have to use one of the ATMs and they only give you $100. The staff is unprofessional and seems clueless when you ask them for help. The kiosks are a nightmare and working with them is worse than working with the people. They freeze, and glitch and many of them just flat out don't work. Probably one of the worst airports I've ever been to."

An hour and a half late which forced me to miss connection to next flight

Check in and security in Faro was a breeze!

Narrow knee space

Water only

Pros: "Very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Boarding could be better organized"
Cons: "Movies"
Pros: "Amazing crew and service! They are the best!!"
Cons: "Amazing crew and service! They are the best!!"
Cons: "Business Class Seating had 3 seats in middle Refurbished 747 had new seats, but still felt like an old plane with awkward layout"
Cons: "Boarding be insured as I have a ticket"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, we had blankets and pillows and that was super comfortable."
Pros: "The crew was great. Food was good for the most part."
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."
Cons: "Didn't like the fruit dish or the liverwurst type meat."
Cons: "No seat assigned at check-in or even as they begin boarding. I thought I was flying Lufthansa. Air Canada gate agents were condescending. Very disappointed."
Pros: "Arrived safely; good selection of movies; sound reasonable."
Cons: "Departed and landed late; virtual no assistance in close connections; even though I paid for economy plus, the seat was terribly uncomfortable and did not properly recline; overhead cabin storage was limited and even did not easily accommodate carry on luggage; food was served cold and unreasonably small dinner and breakfast."
Pros: "Flight was on time, food good. Even the movie selection was great, but ... (see what I didn't like)"
Cons: "Entertainment (sound) in seat 14K didn't work, despite 1 reboot. Please fix."
Pros: "Bad"
Cons: "Because the one came in from London Got Delay And I miss my flight"
Cons: "Manchester Airport couldn’t organise a bus to take us off the plane. Stuck on a landed plane for ever."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I was never notified that there was no 1:45pm flight. Had I not gotten to the airport early I would not have made the flight to Chicago.at 12:25pm. I was originally scheduled to to to Munich but the flight was to Frankfurt. The plane arrived early so I had to make different plans for someone to pick me up Very disappointed in lack of communication"
Cons: "Horrible customer service"
Cons: "Waited an hour after boarding in the plane."
Pros: "Equipment, crew"
Cons: "The boarding of the plane was disorganized."
Cons: "I hated that the plane did not wait for me as I have been on plenty of airlines that have waited 5-10 mins to allow for these sort of things to be rectified. thankfully, Lufthansa and United booked me on a plane that left 5 hours later. they even bought me a 10 euro lunch. :), a pass to the , Luftanhsa lounge would have also been a good showing. I asked about this , but was gently denied. the help desk was gracious, which I appreciated. I had an entire row to myself on the United flight to DC, which softened the blow as well but the flight to Munich from IAD was great (2-28-18)"
Pros: "Schedule was followed."
Cons: "At Budapest Airport only one check-in desk, #1 was shown on the big board for this flight and the airline Lufthansa was only shown above the check-in desk #1, which was dedicated for First/Business and M&M Gold status travellers only. Many economy class passengers queued there and at the end they were all redirected to check-in desk #3, as that was designated for Economy class passengers (however not any Lufthansa sign was shown above. When I mentioned to the ground crew (Celebi) that they should improve signs and not mishandle travellers, the person in charge (Nikolett Magyar) said to me arrogantly that they are right, and nothing they would do to improve the signs and passengers' information. This is far what I expect from LH representative, even if subcontracted and not an employee. That behaviour made my journey sour as travelling - especially with not a budget airline - is not just getting from A to B, but an experience which is worth to remember for good reasons, but not certainly for bad ones."
Pros: "all"
Cons: "nothinh"
Pros: "The plane was new, clean and tight. Seats very narrow, no foot room with carry bag under seat on front. On time depart and arrive. Good movies. BUT, where are my bags. Second day in Geneva without clothes or medicines. SwissPort at GVA isn’t helping. They don’t even know where they are: don’t know if they left EWR"
Pros: "The boarding was fast and effective"
Cons: "The plane arrived late and I had to rush through Munich airport to make the connection. But the luggage arrived with me."
Pros: "All of it"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "No delay and the landing is smooth"
Cons: "Boarding seamed inefficient. Loaded handicap onto separate vehicle in middle of us boarding, so it stopped our process. My seat didn't recline even though it had a button. No in flight entertainment?! At all... Got a crappy breakfast omelet that i didn't want to put in my stomach."
Cons: "The flight was excellent. Crew attentive and pleasant, good amenities--decent meals (special diet preferences observed on 2nd of two flights, but not first). Frequent offers of beverages and water throughout the flight from Munich to EWR, hot towels. Nice! I was not able to choose my seats until check-in, 24 hours before flight time. Of course if I wanted to pay extra (would have amounted to $60 for two flights for each passenger) I could have. Representatives at check in in Athens, were indifferent and not very pleasant."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Lufthansa makes coach travel tolerable. Blankets, pillows, free access to on board entertainment and a large selection of real food, not just snacks, and beverages. All beverages available the entire flight. Plane was clean and everything in working order."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Cons: "Would have been great if the airlines "flying" had actually been Lufthansa! My electronic ticket said Lufthansa, check in at Lufthansa, but when I got there and tried to check-in...NOT Lufthansa! It was United. I deliberately went out of my way to NOT book with United when placing my reservation. Personal reasons. Won't book this way ever again."
Cons: "Charges for suitcase 40 euros this rediculas"
Cons: "Boarding mix up, which was completely Lufthansa's responsibility, delayed my flight to Istanbul for one hour which caused my missing my connection with another airline. This in turn cost me the original flight and a new ticket purchase of at an exorbent price."
Pros: "Only the fact that I got lucky with a exit seat with leg room. That's it."
Cons: "There was no update on the status of our connecting flight. The pilot gave an update of other flights except for ours but it caused a bit of confusion. Some people even had to missed there flights altogether! Lufthansa, from the 4 times I have flown with them always seems to be late with no sense of urgency. Ultimately after arriving in Venice, I get an email that my bags did not make it, yet I was told by the boarding agent that the plane was still loading our bags."
Pros: "Boarding was fast Crew was polite"
Cons: "There was no entertainment on board!!!!!!"
Pros: "I was upgraded to economy plus"
Cons: "The flight was delayed from Frankfurt"
Pros: "Solid selection of new release films."
Cons: "Emergency landing, information not willingly provided. Passengers threatened with legal action for taking pictures of the emergency landing and aftermath. It appeared crew were more concerned with bad PR than transparency and comfort of passengers."
Pros: "Service!!"
Cons: "The company denied any responsibility for the passenger and for the full fill the trip"
Pros: "The crew was especially cheerful and helpful. The food was surprisingly good for airline food. I have always had a good experience on Lufthansa and this trip was no exception."
Cons: "Some of the movie choices were a little dated."
Pros: "Very smooth ride. I liked that they left water/ juice/ snacks downstairs in between meal service. The crew was super friendly, the entertainment selection was awesome too."
Cons: "My chair wouldn't stay reclined :/"
Pros: "Safe and on time"
Cons: "Too cramped. 9 hrs of tight quarters"
Cons: "More current movie selection would be nice."
Cons: "Small plain and food was very bad"
Pros: "Timeliness, clean cabin, professional service."
Cons: "Climbing latters to board."
Pros: "short, slightly delayed flight"
Cons: "Overnight flights are usually a pain in the neck, which is obviously not the airline's fault"
Pros: "The flight wasn't completely full so it was comfortable not having anyone sitting next to me. Food was good. Crew was very nice."
Cons: "transfering from one flight to another is a bit of a headache as the gates were very far away. I didn't have a long layover but fortunately my first flight landed a little early. Otherwise there may have been a risk of not making it. Not sure why they would put connecting flights so far apart."
