Pros: "Premium economy is the way to go! Comfy seats with plenty of room; preflight lounge access."

Cons: "Quite a few passengers with young children crying throughout the trip but I can sympathize trying to keep them occupied on such a long flight."

Pros: "Very polite staff"
Cons: "The curry made me sick and the movies were outdated."
Pros: "They had good movies and music of my choice."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very polite and kind."
Cons: "The food was not to my taste. I did enjoy the ice cream though! Perhaps it was very Japanese (which I am not tremendously familiar with), but even the pasta with sauce which I had the impression was going to be more Italian style, seemed odd. I felt like it was supposed to be gourmet, but just came off strange. I was wishing for something more straightforward."

We were truly blown away and so grateful for the wonderful service and welcome."
Pros: "Great entertainment selection and food"
Pros: "Ok price"
Cons: "I booked the flight and my seats.. When I got to my actual flight they didn't have my confirmation of seats and got separated from my sister. I called to complain to the actual airline and it turns out it was kayak who did my wrong. Very unhappy for 11 hours."

Cons: "Children's meals can be changed a little more, then the amount is a little less!"
Cons: "It was lovely to have a meal but there was no beverage service. Not even water. It may have been because of the strike."

Cons: "There were not a lot of movie options."
Pros: "EVA Air has just got it figured out, solid from boarding to departure"
Cons: "Faster airplanes, or I could pick shorter trips"
Pros: "Food and service always reliably good to excellent. If you're used to the North American style of "we are primarily here for your safety" service standard, then Asian airlines like EVA would be a breath of fresh air."
Cons: "Boarding time always seem to slip a few minutes lately."
Pros: "They staffs were very friendly"
Pros: "Efficient boarding and crew."
Cons: "Food not the best."
Cons: "I know that you have nothing to do with the reservations, but vayama flew me to bali with no return ticket. I even emailed them to confirm my reservation when I was in bali, but when I went to fly home I had no reservation and had to purchase a flight home. This is outrageous and I'm pretty sure illeagal. Now I know you had nothing to do with the reservation my original search started with you for that reason I will not be using kayak, vayama, nor eva air ever again and will suggest everyone I can to do the same. This is outrageous that i had to buy a return ticket home until i get a refund i will not stop."
Pros: "Really enjoyed flying with Eva air."
Cons: "Cramped economy seats"
Cons: "Food was little disappointing this trip..."
Pros: "I have food allergies - and though I did not get around to notifying the airlines prior to the trip they did their best to accommodate me - even making sure that my return flight would include this request. The crew were top notch making sure that even the economy travelers like myself were very well taken care of, comforted and if asleep leaving notes to contact them for a meal set aside. I cannot say enough good things about EVA. Every airline could learn from EVA's attention to customer needs."
Pros: "The 1st class treatment by the flight attendants. And the excellent meals served."
Pros: "On time, great crew"
Pros: "I’m a frequent traveler and there is usually always a long wait when calling any airline customer service number. This is my first time flying EVA so I had several questions. I called 3 times in one week and was surprised that all my calls were answered within one minute. Well done!!!"
Cons: "I gave the representative my TSA pre approval information but found out later at the security check point they don’t participate in this program."
Pros: "Everything was Hello Kitty. I didn’t expect that but I loved it"
Cons: "Flight is delay，take a long line for transfer, it makes me dizzy，got bad mood"
Pros: "Very much"
Pros: "Nothing ."
Cons: "Poor service ."
Cons: "I was told to stop watching movies when we were descending. I was never asked to do that with other airlines. If it is due to safety issues, I would appreciate they informed us why we can’t watch the airline movies"
Pros: "Service and landing were great."
Cons: "Too cramped and people who coughed the whole flight which isn’t airline’s fault. Wine wasn’t good at all."
Pros: "Everything from boarding to entertaiment."
Pros: "Comfortable and clean overall but an older plane."
Cons: "Had an older plane. Seats were smaller than previous flight (narrower, less leg room) Entertainment screens were tiny."
Pros: "Get crew, very friendly. Food is amazing and movies are latest"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Lcd is too near for far sighted...but i enjoyed the trip. The food is not as good as my last eva air trip though."
Pros: "Had to request a wheelchair at the last minute. Staff was swift and courteous. During the flight it was rather bumpy so drink/snack service wasn't as often. Flight attendants were minimally invasive for safety belt checks. Food was decent. For the price I paid, at the last minute, I cannot complain."
Cons: "Wait for wheelchair was rather long. But it's holiday season and it's last minute so it's to be expected."
Pros: "Clean and efficient. Catered to our needs. Definitely would travel them again."
Cons: "Flight delayed. Food was just ok."
Pros: "Crew is so nice."
Pros: "I was able to request a special meal, vegetarian, before my flight, food was served hot and very tasty"
Cons: "For me, they always leave the lights on way too long. But did find a nice blindfold in the bathroom to block out the light."
Pros: "Plus points: Boarding slightly late but OK once it got going. They seemed to have a reasonable drinks selection on board. Cute safety videos."
Cons: "Once boarded some people move around and "re-allocate" their seat. Some recline seats during the meal service and staff are reluctant to tell them off depending on their age. Food unimaginative. A321 narrow-body - only one movie on main screen (inaudible but with Chinese-only subtitles) and no seat-back TV on a 3-hour flight. Overall not so good but another flight I took, widebody (A330) service, has seat-back TV and so is more tolerable."
Pros: "Many food options and tv entertainment"
Cons: "would have liked more western food options"
Pros: "Flight arrived earlier!"
Pros: "I don't have kids, other people do. The attendants give each child a play package to keep them busy and bring out their food early to keep them from making a fuss. There's more than enough to keep adults busy; movies, games, shows, food"
Pros: "Service and Food are good compare to other airlines."
Cons: "No complaint."
Pros: "We were upgraded from economy to business. The leg room was improved and so was the service."
Cons: "This baby did not allow me to sleep on a 13 hr flight. The flight atendants tried to help, but there should be better procedures to contain that."
Pros: "Flight was good but my luggage was mishandled. The top part of my suitcase was ripped off. Some stuff inside with was damaged."
Pros: "Great flight and polite crew. The aircraft was clean and comfortable."
Pros: "Great movie selections. Comfortable in my seat."
Cons: "Small glasses of wine. Bad food. When we landed, with the time difference it would've been 9 am, but they served us a dinner meal and it wasn't appealing."
Pros: "The special attention given by their lead attendant Chu, and her staff when I asked if I could get a low sodium meal. She and the other attendants are very attentive, making sure I'm Ok. Excellent service!"
Cons: "Good& sevices"
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "The extra leg room seats I purchased where not as advertised. There was an entire row on front of the that was not pictured on the web diagram."
Pros: "This flight left nearly an hour late, which at 1 AM really hurts. The crew were ok, but the flight seemed understaffed, and our service in premium economy was pretty ordinary."
Cons: "Total gong show getting to our connecting flight in HK, but Cathay Pacific got us there with only seconds to spare."
Pros: "the crew was professional and efficient on board the plane."
Cons: "seat space was tight. it was hard to get comfortable"
Pros: "The departure and arrival times were good in order to sleep the night, and wake up in Tokyo refreshed. Cabin crew were fairly friendly, but not the Cathay of a few years ago."
Cons: "NONE of the business class center seats would recline. This meant in order to recline and get some rest, the crew had to dismantle your seat and release the locks manually. This meant the seat was in that position until time to land. So I had to make a choice to sleep or eat, horrible for CX."
Pros: "Professional and friendly Crew & the movies"
Cons: "Too cold, seats to narrow, food not so tasty."
Pros: "Nice entertainment on this flight, modern movies and TV programs. The food was good, more than enough to fill you up on a 4.5 hr flight."
Cons: "The business class configuration on the 777s operates on this flight is not worth the extra price paid. I found that the level of recline (120 degrees) made my back ache and it just wasn’t comfortable. I’ve flown this flight several times now and this is an issue for me. I’d like to arrive refreshed"
Cons: "all except the seat - always delayed"
Pros: "Crew was okay, nothing amazing. Seats are cramped as I was put in middle seat separated from my wife despite request to sit together."
Pros: "Friendly, cheerful crew. Clean plane & good entertainment. Food was hot & decent."
Cons: "More food, drinks & snacks. Especially on such long flights."
Pros: "Great crew and service"
Cons: "No good beer selections and the water had a bad taste l."
Pros: "The crew was average. Few of them were hospitable and friendly."
Cons: "After allowing first and business class passengers if boarding is done from the tail end that makes things easier and less messy or chaotic. Many airlines does that way and it seems very much civilized approach."
Cons: "Did not inform us of a flight delay until way after the flight time had past. Waited an extra to take off."
Cons: "I didn’t have a pillow."
Cons: "A very old product in the CX fleet. The old exonomy seat is terrible. Service was not attentive. Entertainment system was not responsive. CX is definitely going downhill."
Cons: "The seat was a bit small for me, legroom a bit tight."
Cons: "Too salty for the meal"
Pros: "Good seat - request granted"
Cons: "They gave menu only to find out they ran out of what I wanted. Don’t even show or hand out menu so passengers won’t expect."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Plane from Manila to Hong Kong was newer and better than the plane from Hong Kong to Newark. Upgrade the planes for longer hours flight"
Pros: "Very courteous and helpful with handicapped people like my mom."
Cons: "I can’t find a number to call to report an item left on the plane, and I would seriously pay a couple hundred extra dollars to any airline that offered a child-free flight."
Pros: "Boarding and flight punctually. Boarding systematically. Crew members polite."
Pros: "Cathay never let you down. Good service, great staff."
Pros: "My mother requires additional assistance for boarding (wheelchair for the ramp, a little extra time). Cathay adjusted our seats so we would be located reasonably near the doors yet close enough to the bathroom for her convenience. The stewards literally took her by the arm to help her to her seat, even taking her bags for her. And they made a point of checking on her several times during the flight. Absolutely amazing!"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Incoming plane was late so that there off departure schedule. Flight to HK was late as well. Bad luck or bad scheduling?"
Pros: "Not much, quick though"
Cons: "Plane is old, seats are terrible, hard awkward, strange seatbelt clunk of foam plastic, food was horrible, never saw the crew, it was hot, needed water has to go track it down, it was an overnight flight so not all the crews fault"
Pros: "Loved the service of the crew, the food, and the spacious seating."
Cons: "WiFi would be a nice addition."
Pros: "The food was great The staff were lovely"
Cons: "Not being informed that I could check in online Having a middle seat More movie choices!"
Pros: "Food is good"
Pros: "Crew is great"
Pros: "Cathy service"
Pros: "Overall good experience"
Cons: "I booked an isle seat for flight to Hong Kong and Cebu and was not given one. I called with request for isle and was assigned very far in advance. But was not given one"
Pros: "I like the service and the foods are so delicious."
Cons: "The charging port when I was on my way to Hong Kong from Los Angeles, it wasn't working so that's the only thing that I didn't like."
Cons: "Seat didn't recline"
Cons: "Delayed flight caused a lot of problems and charges for us"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth."

Cons: "All good"
Pros: "All as expected - no surprises"
Pros: "The plane actually arrived an hour earlier than expected."

Cons: "None experienced"
Pros: "Nice flight great service"
Cons: "I like everything"
Pros: "I do the Canada-Australia trip fairly often to see my family, and Cathay-Pacific is my new fave. Cheaper than the usual, no problematic stops in the US and everything went perfectly smoothly. Thanks for looking after me!"
Cons: "After a stressful 15 hour flight from San Francisco, my connecting flight to Tokyo was delayed by an hour and a half, which is something I'd like to avoid in this long of a flight."
Pros: "Timeliness, Ease of boarding and friendliness of crew."
Cons: "food was OK."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "seat did not recline."
Pros: "It was the best that it could be. Our flight was late and we got the airport early, so the flight attendants put us on an earlier flight so we could make our connection!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were great."
Pros: "Crew is lovely"
Cons: "My vegetarian food was horrible, terrible drink selection, mediocre entertainment."
Cons: "Economy's seats a bit tightly packed in. Food was kind of Asian based and no choices for snacks but the Asian type nuts/pretzels that tastes wired"
Pros: "My sleep"
Cons: "Crew could have been more friendly."
Cons: "Foot rests in economy - better ventilation options airflow"
Pros: "Flight was badly delayed and they changed the gates 3 times with no proper announcements. As a result connecting in Istanbul after 23 hours flight from LAX I missed my flight to Baku. I was made to pay EUR 651 one way at THY transfer desk for another flight which was also delayed."
Cons: "For THY being more professional, taking responsibility for their mistakes and not punishing their customers for THY carelessness. As I understand this situations happen all the time."
Pros: "Customer service was excellent and food was restaurant grade!"
Cons: "Nothing comes to my minds"
Pros: "All the stuff very kind"
Cons: "I don’t like the airport service for well chairs"
Pros: "On time, friendly, good food"
Cons: "Why were they first from the Turkish Airlines staf to puschese new tickets and pay out of packet"
Pros: "Great service, incredible food. To give it a quick one: we ate the fish. ON AN AIRPLANE. I never eat the fish on a plane, but the chefs were great. Everything we ate was exceptional. Oh, beyond the food? The seats are great and the lie-flat worked perfectly. The entertainment system was great as well, and the live TV allowed me to catch the NBA playoffs while in the air. All-in-all, I couldn't recommend this flight more."
Pros: "Over all v good"
Cons: "Why prizes change at the time of booking?"
Pros: "I would recommend Turkish Airlines to anyone. Excellent food and personnel"
Pros: "Crew was fantastic and service was awesome"
Cons: "Business class seats are not very comfortable like Qatar or Emirates."
Cons: "This flight didn’t take take off on time. It was delayed A whole hour which made me miss my connection flight To Houston."
Pros: "Great staff on board!"
Pros: "We did not like anything about the flight."
Cons: "We did not like anything about the trip to Houston from Istanbul. To sart with, we were told by Turkish Airline staff to go to the gate more than 1 hour EARLIER than the flight to Houston. Once we arrived at the gate, we were told "I cannot help you with anything about your flight. That is another department" and we to wait our turn and wait for someone to take us down the jetway. We waited for 75 minutes (1.25 hours) until after EVERY OTHER PASSENGER was on board. The flight attendant was unresponsive to us, talked down to my husband and me in a way that was insulting, rude, demeaning and very nasty. When another passenger complained that he did not get the seat that the attendant just changed for him, FOUR flight attendants helped him - one person got on the phone with someone (I don't know who), another went down to his seat to see where he was sitting. Yet another came and tried to explain why they couldn't help and finally a fourth tried to speak with another attendant on board. Whether or not his problem was solved, I don't know, but this was in the middle of our conversation (with only one attendant, I will add), and so his attention was taken away from us and put on him. Our seats were changed from seats closest to the bathroom to the middle of the plane. My husband cannot walk so 14 rows walking was not possible. I will say that finally, it took three volunteers who offered their seats to us to sit near the much needed bathroom. Regarding being seated near the bathrooms, when we asked for an aisle chair (that they told us they had on board) we were told to "stand there. we will get one in around 10 minutes). And, the wheelchair was sent all the way to the BAGGAGE CLAIM and NOT GATE CHECKED, when we arrived in Houston, we can clearly see the frame is bent, the wheels are out of alignment and the brake is also bent out of shape. The wheelchair is a custom made chair just for my husband. We will be sending Turkish Airlines the bill for a new chair if it cannot be repaired. I hope you can see to address these problems. I am not hopeful it is not normally like this for Jews who wear their head coverings. We would welcome a further conversation about our experience in hopes that others do not have the same one we did. Vivian and Henry Blum"
Pros: "Wheelchair passengers should like any other flight have gate to gate service."
Cons: "Wheelchair service. Very poor"
Pros: "Crew was great. Good selection of movies too."
Cons: "The flight itself was fine, but what has been a horrible pain has been trying to get refunded for an accidental double booking."
Cons: "long delay on the tarmac"
Pros: "I was so impressed by every staff of Turkish Airlines.. I was very young when TWA. Was an elite airlines, with the flight attendants dress perfect.. it made me feel like I was flying first class...with this being my first time using Turkish airlines I actually will use them over the American Airlines; just because the way I was treated and how quickly someone was willing to assist anyone.... I say you are the best!"
Cons: "The flight arrived late and Tipton Long to depart."
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: "I like the comfort, food and the entertainment."
Cons: "As much as I love flying Turkish Airlines, they have this problem of boarding passengers on time as they now feel like "hot cake." They need to improve in this aspect."
Pros: "Service was very good, an excellent selection of entertainment to stay distracted during the 13 hour flight, and a reasonable rate for the flight."
Cons: "Bad cold food. Crowded. Hi"
Pros: "Turkish airlines is the only airlines I fly with for many reasons. Their quaility is a lot better than most of the airlines out there. ( I've flown with many) Although it does tend to be a little bit more expensive it's deffinetly worth it in my opinion."
Cons: "However, unfortunately I have noticed a decline in their service. The food was not as great as it usually is. I had salmon and it was very dry. With the amount of money given to the flight they could have paid attention to it more. It also happened to be my birthday on the flight and my friend who was flying with me called the airlines to ask if there was anything special that can be done. Happily they said that they did do celebrate birthdays and anniversarys. Sadly though nothing was done. Overall was it horrible I would say no but they are starting to loose quality"
Cons: "Food was old"
Pros: "The on flight entertainment had a wide selection. The burger dinner was surprisingly good!"
Cons: "The egg breakfast wasn't good at all. The eggs were tough and didn't taste like real eggs."
Pros: "Having every single person I spoke with pass me on to another party. Apparently customer complaints is really no one's job. They're extremely motivated to have you find someone else to correct your problem. Rest assured it is "your problem" I was told quite explicitly that my missed connection flight and lost luggage was not their problem."
Cons: "They lost my luggage. Couldn't even tell me when my bag was checked despite the scan tag they attached to my boarding pass when they weighed it and checked it in back in New York. They legitimately had no idea if my bag ever left the United States. It took 3 days to locate my baggage while I was trying to celebrate my anniversary with my wife in Athens. being without your luggage for half a week in a foreign country is not even remotely fun. I had to wait around missing tours and reservations trying to find our luggage most of our first 48 hours in Greece. After giving up on getting our stuff we had to waste a chunk of time shopping to replace our clothing and toiletries. Despite having purchased the travel insurance I'm still fighting a month after our trip ended to be reimbursed for the clothes we had to buy just to begin our vacation. Again they continue to stonewall by transferring our complaint calls endlessly and forwarding our emails with "new" case numbers each time. Basically what this accomplishes is they can't ever find the case number they updated it to and insist that the prior case number is listed as resolved. Since they say it's resolved there is nothing anyone can do to help. Not sure if I'll ever get any satisfaction out of this debacle."
Pros: "Service and overall is excellent"
Pros: "Once you got past checkin the flight was fine"
Cons: "The checkin process was horrendous, people waiting for 40-45 minutes even though they were at the front of the line. Repeatedly we saw customers from other lines or no line at all being brought in to take our spots and checkin first with no explanation."
Cons: "The seats were hard and lacked legroom"
Pros: "It is just superb"
Pros: "Sadly, nothing."
Cons: "Service Attitude of staff at Istanbul airport, no one wants to help Delays No options if a flight is missed Wrong information Visa machines at airport don't work"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled"
Pros: "Love the entertainment choices, behind able to watch while seasons of TV shows, new movies. Makes the time pass easily."
Cons: "When you are doing a long flight, you don't want fruit to be the only choice for dessert. It's hard enough being gluten free but to find that nearly every airline just thinks that fruit is acceptable is disappointing. They did provide a gluten free bread roll rather than the usual rice cakes but on two recent legs, didn't heat it. When I told the flight crew the second time that it is inedible when not heated, he was great and said he would do that. And it is nice to eat grilled vegetables which are delicious but sometimes particularly on a long flight, a bit more variety is needed. Turkish Airlines is excellent but fixing this would make it great."
Pros: "The flight attendants were pleasant and very attentive. Great meals."
Cons: "Had trouble with the seat leaning back on one of glights"
Pros: "The space was incredible had enough leg room, the food was delicious, the amenities like the movies and music and games made the flight feel a lot quicker loved this air line!!!!"
Cons: "The bathroom needed a little more maitence that's all!!"
Pros: "Wonderful food and service and movies."
Pros: "Staff courtsey"
Cons: "Some of the food"
Pros: "Excellent service, excellent food, very friendly crew"
Cons: "no subtitles on English language movies, which means I could not understand half of the dialogues because of the noise and poor sound quality. It would be very nice to always have English subtitles on all English-language movies."
Pros: "They treat economy like you're in first class. They literally give you a menu of food. The entertainment is extensive and free. It's also likely your flight will be less than half full. Tons of empty seats to lay down and sleep."
Cons: "Boarding was behind and slow and very crowded in be area."
Pros: "Turkish Airlines has some of the best amenities of any airline: great meals (and often), clean planes, plus two free checked bags for flights between Middle East and USA."
Cons: "The plane was overbooked with MANY seats having been doubly assigned. After more than half an hour we were given a new seat assignment (in first class! Business class had already been filled with other double bookings!). They did their best to accommodate everyone though and the remainder of the flight was very pleasant."
Cons: "Our flight was canceled and we lost an entire day of our vacation (apartment rental, car rental, etc). Before leaving to Istanbul when we were in New York we asked if they would reroute our flights from New York City to Naples, Italy since the terrorist attack occurred in Istanbul causing the airport to be shut down. We were reassured that there would be no problems and we would be rerouted once we landed in Turkey, and lo and behold our flights were canceled. We had to spend the day in Turkey, pay for our own food, and pay for the visa €30 per person. This all could have been avoided had they rerouted our flights to another city."
Pros: "Clean, efficient."
Cons: "Inexplicably, food choices ran out and the crew were basically like tough luck...no explanation, aporigins or anything. My fiance who didn't eat meat was left eating bread and crackers."
Pros: "Love the flight crew and the in flight experience was great! They're very attentive and the flight is always comfortable."
Cons: "Booked a flight for 2pm that was cancelled after I had made hotel arrangements and the the later flight was delayed by 2 hours! We didn't arrive until 2 am and our hotel got cancelled. The airline took no responsibility and refused to help with a hotel for a 15 hour layover in Istanbul. Their customer service people are rude and extremely unhelpful, doing nothing but telling us we should have flown in a day later for a shorter layover. Seriously?? Totally unacceptable."
Pros: "Nothing special."
Cons: "No Internet, seats were very uncomfortable..ugh"
Cons: "Changed boarding gate 3 times and then put us in a crowded stand up room only 10 minute shuttle to the plane where we then had to climb steep stairs with carry on luggage to enter the 777."
Pros: "very good food!! and excellent choice of movies"
Pros: "Great food,wine and snacks!"
Pros: "Everyone was really nice!"
Pros: "We were the only customers in business class, which was nice. Lots of attention from the crew, and food was good."
Cons: "Ummm, THAT was "business class"? Same seats as economy, with middle seat blocked off. Limited recline, no entertainment, no comfort seats. Nice meal, nice drinks, nice service...but I'm a little stunned that a European airline would call this kind of seating "business class". Only thing that separated it from economy class was a curtain, and middle seats blocked off."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "More comfortable seats"
Pros: "The food was good and was served with professionalism.It was an excellent service no doubt."
Cons: "Frankfurt connecting flights, security, and Passport control are terribly inefficient, with unclear guides to get passengers from B gates to A gates."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful, gong out of their way as even bringing me camomile tea. It was lukewarm, it it’s the thought that counts."
Cons: "The seats were way too tiny on this giant airbus, even for me and my daughter-in-law who are both under 5 feet and under 100 lbs. te flight was torture. Food also was not as good as previous Lufthansa fare."
Pros: "Food was good (not pasta!), crew was very accommodating"
Cons: "Flight was delayed (again!). There was no desert with the food."
Pros: "The crew was attentive."
Cons: "Boarding crew in EWR insisted that my small carry on had to be checked in. MANY passengers were able to bring on board luggage that was larger and clearly heavier. I don’t understand why I was one of the exceedingly few passengers pulled out of the queue to have luggage checked in. Food was sad."
Cons: "Late, missed connection"
Pros: "So very comfortable with lots of room. The mattress pads for the seats were a nice touch."
Cons: "Food was mediocre."
Pros: "Departure and arrival were timely, staff was courteous and helpfull."
Pros: "there is a big amount of space between the rows making sitting very comfortable"
Cons: "lack of ventilation above the heads"
Pros: "The 9 hour flight was made so much nicer with and excellent and attentive flight crew. They were always available with a hot towel, drink, meal or a snack. Seats were very comfortable."
Pros: "This was my first experience flying with Lufthansa airlines and the experience was outstanding from start to finish! This is what flying should be like! Other airlines should do what they do!"
Cons: "The airport pretty much shut down for awhile so some flights were canceled. Due to the number of people attempting to check in and go through security, I missed my plane and was rebooked in an economy seat. These glitches occur but one would expect Lufthansa to have had a plan to deliver clear directions."
Pros: "Actual flight, staff, food, beverages."
Cons: "Altho I checked in on line in advance, i was unable to print my boarding pass . Lufthansa very little space for check in & luggage at Charles de Gaule and staff advised me to arrive at 4am for 7:45am departure so I could stand in line to get boarding pass and deposit luggage. I did so. Wait was not too long. Security was fast by comparison."
Cons: "The forward economy cabin was too cold. When the passenger in front of me had his seatback all the way back, I could not get out of my seat, lean forward, nor see the entertainment screen or eat easily."
Cons: "Too few water servings. Made me sick."
Pros: "On time flight, good service."
Cons: "Booked with SAS, had to check in with Lufthansa, had a cbange,which required SAS again!"
Cons: "Boarding and departure was late."
Cons: "Moved boarding gate without notice"
Pros: "I can not even mention one thing that was good - they were ahead of time on arrival, which is good - but luggage took 2 hours to get and some items came in after midnight the following day! Terrible"
Pros: "WiFi on long flight from Detroit to Frankfurt"
Cons: "Very weird flight attendant. Seemed unexperienced and stressed out. Bad vibe from the crew in general."
Pros: "Seat and service on board"
Cons: "It was difficult to watch the movies. Some of them were stuck and couldn't be played. Only after a while they "unlocked"."
Pros: "The crew moved as quickly as possible, and this made bathroom access easier."
Cons: "The small size of the plane made the long-lasting turbulence near the point of landing impossible to ignore. I don't consider this the fault of the pilot, more the size of the plane."
Pros: "The check-in and boarding was fast, easy, great. The crew was very nice and good. The overall service was excellent."
Cons: "the food was on medium level compared to other airlines."
Pros: "The entire experience was great. Easy check-in, boarding, on time, friendly service, good food, good movies, and overall a really nice atmosphere for such a long flight. Would recommend this Flight to anyone."
Pros: "Top notch in-flight entertainment. Chicken meal was not bad. Friendly crew"
Cons: "These flights in and out of Newark have the tightest leg room I've been on. I feel bad for tall passengers. The boarding gate from Düsseldorf was way too crowded."
Cons: "It took too long to drop by luggage. Some of the crew wasn't friendly."
Pros: "On time. Fast boarding and un boarding. Crew is very friendly."
Cons: "No tv, though understandably on a short flight."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "The flight was late, They kept us in the plane for 20min And bagages are delay...."
Cons: "No option for food"
Pros: "Good flight good seats smooth ride."
Cons: "Boarding was not organized."
Pros: "The flight wasn't full. I was given a window seat with an empty seat next to it. I was able to move around and relax. There were lots of movies to choose from. The food was decent for a flight."
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: "No problems. As could be expected. Would do again."
Pros: "Crew was helpful. Liked the ice cream bars"
Cons: "Repetitive food choices. Same movies as last month so if you take long trips,you run out of options. I spent 28 hours on flights in Nov and Dec"
Cons: "Delay in boarding, delay in removing snow/ice, my seat was changed without notifying me (after i checked in on line the day before)"
Pros: "aircraft was clean and the crew was organized and very professional"
Cons: "Very long flight. Try to get as much sleep as possible."
Cons: "The seats were too hard. I have never felt that way on any other flights."
Pros: "Again, I appreciated the big meal, dinner, about 2 hours into the flight. Nice to have real metal utensils, not plasticware, to eat with. The 'snack' at the end of the flight was more of a throwaway:(pizza or) "Sausage": six one-inch hollow spheres of sausage with a hint of Dijon(?) sauce inside, all served with a mmedium-sized dry chewy roll. Nice to get wine, or maybe beer(?), with dinner at no extra charge, served from regular wine bottles, not individual-serving containers."
Cons: "The huge plane was completely full; no handy empty seat nearby to stretch out into. Took forever to board and exit the plane."
Pros: "Most of all."
Cons: "The headphone connection method. It is difficult to replace the headphone w/ your own because the connector is located deep in the headphone compartment and you cannot see it in easily. As far as you use the built-in headphones, no problem."
Pros: "We requested a special meal to accommodate multiple food allergies, and they both promised and provided it."
Pros: "All. Excellent experience."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and accommodating. Flight was on time and smooth."
Cons: "Forget the bottom line and make more leg room in economy so passengers have a good experience, families with young children should all be stuck together! I had the pleasure of having my seat kicked half the flight by a small child whose mother did not seem to notice or care. Food was not good! And airplane food can be good, just ask Quantas Airlines."
Pros: "Very good crew, very attentive, very comfortable seats in business and entertainment Flight left within 30 min of departure time and there was no turbulence"
Cons: "Food, I barely ate especially on Lagos Frankfurt leg. I evem believe that the fish that was served may have been slightly off !"
Cons: "The narrow seats: it is not fun to travel with four elbows in your ribs. Try it some time."
Pros: "service, food, entertainment"
Cons: "seats, boarding process"
