The boarding procedure was ABYSMAL. It is infuriating to be asked to "social distance" and wear masks when the airline is unable to conduct boarding in an organized and efficient way. The crew was totally incompetent in informing waiting passengers. No microphones. No digital display of boarding order. No staff assistance. Waiting for WAY too long with no explanation. It was perfectly awful. Food was eatable but completely tasteless. Not nearly enough liquid distribution.

Pros: "I really loved the food and the attendants were super friendly and helpful"
Pros: "like all the crews. nice attitude and friendly. very helpful to your needs."
Cons: "selected our (3 in a group) seats 24 hours before. but in Doha, the ground crew named Mohammed changed our seats . usually in usa you need to ask if you could do that. but that guy printed the new boarding passes and then said we change your seats. i told him that was rude and not courteous to passenger. he had no answer."

Cons: "Toilets needs air freshener as so many passengers use them."
Cons: "More refreshments"
Pros: "The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The food, while it tasted good, made me a little sick because it’s pretty unhealthy. I am vegan and would have like lower calorie option meals. I tried to find an option on the app to order special meals, but couldn’t. It would be good if Qatar made it easy to order special meals on their app."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful for everything"
Pros: "Good attention from crew and very comfortable seats."
Cons: "Nothing given the great value for money"
Pros: "Crew was not this great on my Flight from Doha to IAD. My pre ordered food was not given on time and they missed it. I was given cold food. The flight attendant ignored to offer Drinks and they didn't give the Custom Forms too. I have to ask everything and THE overall service was awful"

Pros: "amazing"
Cons: "better food"
Pros: "The airplane and clean"
Cons: "The seats destination between them very small"
Pros: "We received friendly attitudes with lots of soft drinks. Upstairs in the airbus was good as my seat was near the emergency door, where I had room for my long legs. I was given aisle seats on both return flights so I could move about more. The meals were lovely. The airbus was good for peace & quiet from crying children."
Cons: "I had left an expensive style of neck/travel pillow i left in my Perth rental car but wasn’t supported to pick it up. I had to arrange for the car rental firm to post it. We had over 3/4 hr to fly. We were boarding. It’s a shame there wasn’t a quick way of getting my pillow to me without customs bureaucracy. It was a simple mistake. A toilet was blocked and temporarily unavailable. Some passengers were taking a long time and queues were building at different times."
Cons: "Doha to Washington plane was an old plane where entertainment system did not function properly, seats did not recline etc. Emirates A380 is a lot more comfortable plane."

Cons: "Took long time to provide food & water."

I proceeded to tell him I never got the main course, he apologized and told me that there was only an egg entree left. I went ahead and took it, then as a way to apologize he offered to get me a piece of fruit, a banana. I accepted but he never came back with it. It was not a big deal but I did not appreciate being offered something and then no follow up. Next time do not offer something and then not follow through."

Cons: "Boarding was crazy."
Cons: "Seats in economy very uncomfortable for long Doha to LAX flight. When person in front of us reclines seat for entire flight, it is almost impossible to get out to stretch legs or go to restroom. At the minimum, crew should ask all passengers to raise seats during meal service as a courtesy to those behind them. This is done on other airlines."
Pros: "Airport staff."
Cons: "4 hour flight wolith no entertainment system and old aircraft was a huge drop I am frequent Qatar airways customer, and this flight was the worst"

Pros: "Wonderful friendly service yet not overpowering. Clean airplane esp. clean bathrooms with efficient amenities. Fruits were sweet."

Pros: "Qatar Airways is always impressing"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "I love the food and the movies"
Pros: "the onboard entertainment system is poor: you don't have your personal screen, and the only programmes available are the saftey video and airline's ads. The flight was delayed for 20 minutes at the start however it arrived on time. So that was not really an issue."
Cons: "The crew are professioanl and the service is OK although you need to ask for your tea/coffee. The food isn't amazing but it meets my expectation about the short flight cuisine."

Pros: "Great good entertainment n crew provided warm and courteous service"
Cons: "Terrible boarding process n the seats are not the best- not bad just not as good as everything else."
Cons: "Bording the plane has no order passengers seated in the front border before the rear. I was in 32a to he worst seat on the plane"
Pros: "Turkish Airline is really good at making safety videos. Istanbul Atatürk Airport is hands down the best airport in the world."
Pros: "Again, food and service in business class were superb. A newer 777 and more comfortable lie-flat seats"
Cons: "Business class gets only one small lavatory."
Pros: "I loved the food and the staff are very helpful and friendly. I have always chosen Turkish airlines."
Pros: "Turkish do a good job of giving you a good service for your money."
Cons: "Why not keep us informed why there are delays before take off. Headphones that worked well without having to fiddle with the connection would be good"
Cons: "Flight arrived 20 mins late. Luckily my connection is 12 hours later"
Pros: "Food and crew amazing..I guess Turkish airline going to be best"
Pros: "Lot of empty spaces"
Cons: "Lot of rubbish on the plane"
Pros: "The crew was extremely friendly. Main course had a variety and the prawns were especially good."
Cons: "No inflight entertainment even for business class passengers."
Pros: "I liked everything, from the inflight catering, check in, etc! I had to cut short my trip to Istanbul due to a family issue- they couldn’t do enough to facilitate a flight home at short notice at a minimum cost and most importantly expedited my return with the minimum of hassle- thank you Turkish!"
Cons: "No negative points to make."
Cons: "Need More premier economy seats"
Pros: "Thr A330 has 32" pitch which was ok. The 2-4-2 seating made this less of an issue. Food was ok. Screens are decent and responsive."
Cons: "It's 32" for a 10 hour flight. Not really comfortable and enjoyable, and a squeeze throughout."
Cons: "My taxi crashed on the way to Izmir, I missed my flight to Istanbul and my connection to Dublin in still stuck in Istanbul"
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. Boarding was chaotic - a full flight crammed into a departure lounge with far too few seats. There were many families trying to board and the staff could barely cope."
Cons: "Boarding was very annoying because when you go through security they make you feel like a total criminal for no reason. Checking our laptops as if we have something to hide. We already went through 3 security checks prior to boarding the flight. Security staff was extremely rude and inconsiderate for peoples belongings."
Cons: "The boarding was a little more chaotic, but the host airport has a major influence on that process."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "After bus arrived at steps kept on it 20 mins. 2 more buses arrived in this time. Still wait. Then let out all at once. Massive queues to board. Poeple not dressed for this. Poor babies crying Maybe 15 mins waiting in 2am cold on tarmac."
Pros: "The services was excellent."
Cons: "Delay around three quarter an hour."
Pros: "Onboard food was good"
Cons: "Crew wasn't attentive, flight boarding was delayed with passengers on the bus waiting for boarding ramp to the plane, for awhile no explanation was given."
Pros: "Very friendly and willing crew."
Cons: "Sound through headphones could be better. Hope to have free onboard internet one day!!"
Cons: "They lost one of our bags."
Pros: "The boarding was fast and smooth"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "I am not blaming the airline at all for these inconveniences."
Cons: "NOTE: THIS IS NOT A CRITIC OF THE AIRLINE Having personally experienced the latest in the consequences of travel related rules mandated by US public officials, I am yet again left wondering if they, and their families, go through these rules that they impose on the general public. Or if they just breeze into their private airport wings and planes. I doubt they take off shoes, belts, and such, or go through irradiated machines. But going through about 3 extra layers of security while transiting is a bit much. Not to mention the extra hours spent relinquishing and reclaiming laptops etc. Frankly, non of these acts makes anything safer. It is akin to the permanently parked police vehicle on the Brooklyn Bridge in NYC since 9-11. What is that supposed to deter?"
Pros: "Aircraft was clean enough Crew was fine Food was ok Turkish could have planned to be better than European airlines It is trying to become like them Restroom was cleaner than competition"
Cons: "Ok"
Pros: "The tv because I got to watch a couple of movies"
Cons: "The crew did not know what they were doing. My grandmother needed a wheel chair and the lady who took her did not allow any of us to stay with her , mind you my grandmother can't speak English. The lady also told us that she didn't need the passport or her boarding pass ??? Because of that my grandmother almost got lost , we had to wait for her for an eternity. She got very scared and very upset for what you guys did . She is an old lady and it was one of her worst experiences of her life"
Pros: "Food, entertainment system"
Cons: "Everything else. Europes Bedt Airline should be much better. Turkish Airlines is nothing against UAE airlines."
Pros: "Boarding was orderly"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "The window seat"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Avoiding my to go Israel Delta monopoly is fading"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The whole experience was great. After an excellent meal which included drinks before and an excellent wine selection the flt attendants came through and made up a bed for you. This included a cover for the seat, a blanket and a big pillow. As opposed to United where you have to stick your feet in a little cubby the Turkish plane has just an open bench which opens to provide storage and gives ample foot room. I have never slept so much on a flt. Also he bathrooms are much more spacious than others."
Cons: "Really nothing."
Pros: "In flight entertainment was awesome, Wide selection of movies to keep occupied."
Cons: "Food was okay but can be improved, needs to have more variety and more local touch in the cuisine offered."
Pros: "Waiting half and one hours before fly out from airport, because the fly road is busy for landing."
Pros: "Turkish Airlines were a great surprise - everything was much better than expected. Highly recommend flying with them."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Boarding mess at Istanbul"
Pros: "The attendant at check in was anything but attentive. We asked if the flight was full and she replied with a face gesture that indicated 'no' (it was a 1.50am flight) so we asked if possible to upgrade with points and she totally ignored, spoke in Turkish to 2 other check in colleagues, printed the boarding passes and almost threw them down on the counter without responding on upgrade. We felt too intimidated to ask any more. Also our mileage points for this sector of our travel were not booked to our KrisFlyer accounts so wondering if she did not capture at check in."
Cons: "The cabin was quite warm and unable to adjust any air flow to the seat. Because the flight wasn't full my husband was able to move to a vacant group of seats and lie down so eventually cooled down and got some sleep. Otherwise excellent flight"
Pros: "Was lucky to be upgraded to Business and enjoyed the premium service and convenience . Being upgraded from time to time is the reward for loyalty and I appreciate the recognition"
Pros: "The attention to the crew. They were attentive to all orders"
Cons: "The food has too much bread and pasta. The seats recinan well but there is little room"
Pros: "Food was excellent. Vegetarian meal remembered. Service was good, pleasant crew. Good selection of films."
Cons: "Seats could be more comfortable. Headphones are really not very good quality. Touch screen difficult to use (not very responsive to touch)."
Pros: "Only check in with business line and fast track"
Cons: "Same bus with economy passergers there are not Enugu room for my hand bags the crew wait all economy passengers to load and close the doors the they start to serve us and there r no interterments on the aircraft Business class in Turkish air line worse the economy class in qatar airways or Emirates or ethad"
Pros: "very professional, great entertainment"
Cons: "13 hours from Istambul is very very long."
Pros: "The staff was friendly and easy to communicate with. The Food was average, but better than other flights I have taken. The Entertainment system was stellar, new, large screen, tons of choices. This flight really went quickly for me."
Cons: "I had a big problem with the Baggage allowances on this particular flight. I was only allowed 20kg on a long (8hr) international flight, one which I was moving around the world for. If the policy was more like 40kg, there would have been no problems whatsoever and my trip would have been the best I have experienced in a long time. I suggest they improve their regulations quickly to widen their customer base."
Pros: "The flight was good on time and short. The seating for economy was fine."
Cons: "The only negative was the seat assignments at check in were random and all over the cabin for the three of us since we checked in nearly 20 hours before the flight. The Representatives in Turkey told us we would have to get the seats reassigned upon arrival in the US. So when we arrived the flight was fully booked sand they were unable to seat us together. other that that it was a good experience."
Pros: "We've always enjoyed flying Delta and this trip had been just as nice as the previous ones we have taken through this airline."
Cons: "Our stewardess/stewards seem to be incredibly cranky on this trip and very unapproachable. They must have been having an "off" day I guess."
Cons: "Love flying Delta superb customer service"
Pros: "Average flight. Crew was polite."
Cons: "On time performance. Barely made my connecton, because of flight delay. Seems like only 1 in 5 flights are on time according to flightaware.com."
Pros: "The entire flight was excellent, on time, great friendly crew, edible food, movies and options were great, perfect in every way. It was a little chaotic at flight loading on extra security, but I assume it could have something to do with it being on 9/11 and it was ultimately bound for NYC."
Cons: "I honestly cannot think of anything."
Pros: "The crew and staff were friendly. The flight was full so they checked our bag at no additional charge."
Cons: "They had no earphones for the flight from Cancun."
Pros: "Flight was smooth"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "quick and efficient"
Cons: "I know it's not the airline's fault, but we were delayed for weather. Also seats do no recline and there is no entertainment."
Pros: "Food were bad. Out of air condition"
Pros: "Amazing"
Cons: "Old plane"
Cons: "Change my seat when I was boarding. I already had my seat # assigned before boarding. Sat next to a man with a strong body odor. I came down with a sore throat last night so I was feeling pretty bad. Then to endure a long flight with that smell which made my trip very uncomfortable."
Cons: "The flight crew were great"
Cons: "SeAts"
Cons: "The flight from. JFK to Barcelona was delayed as well. Their computers were down in Atlanta. So everyone had to have their name hand typed into a computer when boarding. Then the pilot said that our bags are usually weighed and computerized for even distribution on the plane. That system was also down, so we sat on the runway waiting for that problem to be fixed. When we arrived at Barcelona, I unpacked and discovered a jacket and pants in my luggage were wet. The only place that could have happened was at JfK during their rain storm and the luggage weight issue."
Pros: "Tried the free WiFi and movies"
Cons: "Was late almost for an hoir."
Cons: "7 hours delayed. Poor front desk worker, nice flight attendants!"
Pros: "How nice and gentle they were."
Cons: "Long waiting lines."
Pros: "They were quick and efficient."
Cons: "price could be cheaper"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Wouldn’t let us take our carry-on because they had overbooked and had no more room in overhead. Delayed our first flight and then our connecting flight left *early*. (If you know you have customers with short connections, why leave early to make their connections even shorter?) Then told us they would not pay for our hotel since it wasn’t their fault. Gave us a “discount” with a nearby hotel that was more expensive than what you could book it for online. Had to wait several hours for them to get us back the carry-on luggage that they insisted we check in the first place."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and shout out to Brady, he really helped me out of a TIGHT situation :-)"
Cons: "Felt bad for the crew being under pressure as they got off a flight and had to rush to ours....."
Pros: "The flight was delayed by 50 minutes and then they underestimated the time to de-ice."
Pros: "The chekc in person was very helpful."
Cons: "The plane was too hot and the pilot did not accommodate the passengers request. More than just me made the same request."
Pros: "on board entertainment options are really nice... esp to be free. real time luggage updates in early"
Cons: "like to see a bit better snacks"
Pros: "New airplanes.On time schedule .Very professional a"
Pros: "Boarded quickly and on time."
Cons: "After boarding everyone they made us wait for another plane to arrive to take passengers on our flight to Syracuse since we had many empty seats. The wait was way too long and completely unnecessary. Not only did they keep everyone on the plane for a long time but they made us very late."
Pros: "My flight was great. Boarding was easy and the seats were comfortable."
Pros: "Delta siempre excelente servicio al cliente."
Pros: "Upon arriving in Minneapolis-St. Paul, it was a struggle to determine whether or not my bags had made it, whether or not I needed to collect them from baggage claim due to the cancellations/delays, and if I was even going to be able to transfer my ticket. Flight arrived late in the evening when most flights were basically complete for the day. Luckily, I happened upon a red-eye arrival, and spoke to an agent at that gate (Taj). Taj was without a doubt, THE BEST GATE AGENT I HAVE ENCOUNTERED IN MY 40+ YEARS OF TRAVELLING!! I explained my situation to him, and he immediately asked to see my travel info. He proceeded to get me on a flight much earlier than originally anticipated, upgraded me to Premium fare status, and did his best to re-route my luggage (which he informed me was still sitting in ATLANTA 18 hours after having left there...) - how does someone get on a flight, and their check-in get noted, but their luggage does not get put on said flight?? Things that make you go hmmmmm.... All that aside...I will be planning a trip to Minneapolis-St. Paul specifically to take a gift of appreciation to Taj! Well done on this end Delta - Taj is an excellent example of intelligent customer service."
Cons: "Last minute notifications of delays/cancellations. Luggage was not placed on my original departing flight from Atlanta 18 HOURS EARLIER...not cool Delta. As a result, I did not receive my luggage for another 2 1/2 days ."
Pros: "Everyone was really nice and responsive."
Cons: "Seats are a little older. Not as comfortable as other flights. But not bad."
Pros: "Too many people, no room for carry-ons, departed almost an hour late."
Cons: "Too many people, no room for carry-ons, departed almost an hour late."
Pros: "I like Delta. They are organized and professional. They treat traveler with dignity."
Pros: "Two Delta agents a kiosk assistance were not aware of the Hurricane Irma policy of waiving baggage fees to my destination. I informed them that the website indicated it would waive baggage fees to certain destinations if checked in at the airport before a certain date. Another Delta agent nearby had to show them a copy of the policy before I could get my baggage fees waived."
Pros: "Wifi for entertainment worked well"
Cons: "No longer have entertainment on back of seats"
Pros: "The crew was good and attentive"
Cons: "The management was horrible, if you already knew the pilot was working extensive hours you could have had another pilot on standby just in case... I'm sure it would have been a lot cheaper and less of an inconvenient for everyone on the flight..."
Pros: "Professional and efficient"
Cons: "I am 5'3". My feet never touch the floor, which is quite uncomfortable after about an hour."
Pros: "Crew smiling at the end of the flight."
Cons: "Cheap coffee (although it says Starbucks, I have tried better)."
Pros: "Newer plane! Comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing just great"
Pros: "The flight was run through Delta out of Seattle, and the crew was friendly and very helpful, as it was initially somewhat confusing how to check in for the flight online via WestJet's site - but the check-in agents and gate agents quickly clarified! The flight also boarded and departed mostly on time, and the onboard wifi was great."
Cons: "It was a bit confusing to check in online, as the WestJet site doesn't list Seattle as a departure city and then it took several different input attempts before Delta's site found my WestJet flight info."
Pros: "I found the seating to be to cramped on such a long flight. The person in front of me reclined back and the distance between my knees and his seat was just about an inch. I'm not s big guy on height or weight so I was quite uncomfortable. Other then that everything was great."
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Pros: "New comfort seats. Nice staff. Pilot kept us continuously updated."
Cons: "Unclear info on upgrade [priority boarding when upgraded?]. Inability to upgrade ticket made using mileage points or upgrade at counter at gate."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No entertainment Small overhead bind"
Pros: "Crew was quick and nice."
Cons: "Not many options for food."
Pros: "The aircraft was much better than the originally plan which was delayed and then cancelled. Comfort seats and cleaner aircraft was a nice surprise after 5.5hrs of stranded time at the CLE airport."
Cons: "Delayed for 5.5 hours."
Pros: "I rated entertainment as 1* as there is no N/A option. Flight was very pleasant."
Pros: "Flight crew was very personable; cheerful and courteous."
Pros: "Lovely crew"
Pros: "The flight attendants were excellent! Very attentive to passenger needs and wants"
Cons: "The seats are just economy seats with the middle seat left open"
Pros: "We were delayed due to weather and Delta brought a cart of snacks and drinks over to the gate for us."
Pros: "Flight left on time and got in early. This allowed us to catch an earlier flight to Seattle."

Definitely would recommend and I will book again

Lufthansa can't handle the new challenges the pandemic brought. Next time I would do everything possible not to flight with them.

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: "Friendly, quick and efficient crew! Great food too!! My favorite part when in Houston, Texas my starting point, was that I never had to do the self check in, y’all actually had “real” people going the job!!"
Cons: "Boarding in order, by the seat numbers. That’s the only thing y’all can improve on. It was my first time booking with Lufthansa, and I will definitely book with y’all again."
Pros: "Seats were ok and crew was kind and professional. Food was terrible on all flights. They gave mayo or cheese or something I can’t figure out in a sandwich on multiple flights. That thing though slightly different was terrible every time. Also gates changes and pilot landed in wrong part of the airport for its-fra leg and we had to have passportA checked while exiting the plane and had to take a bus. My transit time was short but gladly made it"
Cons: "I missed my second leg from fra-ist. The gate was changed and I was given wrong directions by airport employees so I went through a very long and painful wait at a security line that I didn’t need to go through had the airport info employees knew what they were doing or saying. I ended up missing the flight because of repeated wrong directions"
Cons: "Istanbul to frankfurt flight had no entertainment, no charging usb ports n a small ham sandwitch for breakfast - this was a 4 hour early mirning international flight!!!"
Cons: "13 hour flight and only one meal and a sandwich"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything."
Cons: "I like they give you a hot towels before meal to wipe your hands. Very friendly crew service was great❤️❤️"
Pros: "Lufthansa doesn’t let the passenger choose their seat; it instead assigns their seat for them!"
Cons: "Too many last minute gate changes for boarding are confusing which costs extra time for the passenger, especially for connecting flights."
Pros: "Everything thanks"
Cons: "Awesome thanks"
Pros: "It was very comfortable and service was great and good food and drink"
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Was delayed outgoing but information was good"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Online check in wouldn't let us add luggage. No entertainment. No choice of food. uncomfortable seats."
Cons: "I miss my flight because of short layover from Texas to Pensacola. Why I haven’t notified before 1:27 min would not be enough for custom process"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "The business class seats are small and the leg-room is short There is no entertainment units on this flight"
Pros: "The food was tasty but the service was excellent. Lovely staff."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable, particularly for business class. And there is no in flight entertainment. The journey can drag if you’re not prepared with your own. Boarding was slightly chaotic but expected in Istanbul airport."
Pros: "Service , timing"
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!"
Pros: "It was totally bad experience due to cancellations of the flights which I already booked to SJC airport in CA. The first confirmed Lufthansa flights No: LH 1305/ LH 488 ISTANBUL to SAN JOSE via FRANKFURT were cancelled. Then my family in USA contacted the airline and agreed about FLIGHT TK 005 / UA 1883: IST-ORD-SJC. At the checking counter in Atatürk Airport I got the last shock of being Lufthansa didn’t issue a ticket for the flight and the time was running fast and l had no contact neither with my family nor anybody else at the airport therefore i had to purchase a ticket to SFO via Frankfurt. In another word it was very bad experience."
Pros: "Crews were very friendly"
Cons: "Frankfurt connecting flights are the worst"
Pros: "Meal was good."
Cons: "No entertainment system. Crew wasn’t attentive. Check in experience was bad, no ability to check in for your connecting flights, you have to make adjustments at the next airport which limits seat selection."
Cons: "Small seats, no leg room, seat in front of me reclined till it almost hit my chin. Narrow narrow narrow aisles: so bad your little carts used by rushing, bashing, crashing cabin attendants left my arm (on the aisle) bruised and black & blue. The person in the seat next to mine had an INOPERABLE ENTERTAINMENT SCREEN FOR THE ENTIRE FLIGHT. The crew was constantly racing back & forth up and down the aisles bashing into chairs, people, what ever... because the aisles were SO TINY."
Pros: "Crew. Meal good too."
Cons: "Bus rides to aircraft at Frankfurt"
Cons: "Delayed"
Cons: "My flight schedule changed after I bought the ticket, which resulted in paying for the hotel for the extra night and using one more PTO day."
Pros: "The whole journey with Lufthansa went smoothly without any delay. The transist time is just right. The check in is online is straight forward and the flight information is very clear. I will certainly recommend Lufthansa to anyone."
Cons: "I can’t think of anything I didn’t like."
Pros: "The food and service was superb."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "I was sitting at the tale end. Seat was extremely uncomfortable. I was trying to rest yet flight attendants and several passengers were talking loud. Crews kept forgetting passengers orders/requests. A lady sitting besides me pushed a call bottom 3 times to get noticed. Flight attendants were too busy chatting with passengers to help other passengers. I have never seen that type of services before."
Cons: "THE LATE HAPPENED FROM MONTREAL TO TORONTO 1:30 HOURS WITHOUT CUP OF WATER WAITING IN THE PLANE"
Cons: "There was a delay on the takeoff and arrival was taken to another gate and had to take a bus. Not crew or company's fault- but makes traveling a bit slow. Several people had connecting flights..!"
Pros: "Amazing service."
Pros: "Timing"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Istanbul-frankfurt airline 2 hours delayed,that way miss a flight Frankfurt-toronto we said Lufthansa officer,officer said other flight tomorrow morning, final,no hotel,no flight,my wife and two kids sleep on the chair,perfect right"
Cons: "Incredibly racist crew and pilot, who did not help us after a fellow passenger touched and molested my girlfriend on board the aircraft. The groundstaff were as rude and unhelpful. I am neither gonna book any flights on Lufthansa ever and will avoid Kayak as well."
Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "Seats"
Cons: "They had grabbed my carry-on luggage at the gate. I specifically told the gate agents that I put heirloom plates that used to belong to my mother in my carry-on. They assured me it would be handled properly. Well this promise turned out to be lie. The plates were broken. Even though they were wrapped. I am sad and angry. My carry-on was small and light. There was no reason that it should be singled out in the first place. Now what?"
Pros: "Comfortable, left and arrived on time , smooth check in"
Cons: "No entertainment (no screens on back of seat ) , no provision for priority boarding for star alliance gold member(security line)"
Pros: "Excellent service with pleasant, efficient staff. Special vegetarian diet needs met."
Pros: "Big airplane and therefore no turbulence. Food was good for airplane food. Boarding was pretty fast considering the number of people. Didn't have problems finding overhead luggage space"
Cons: "Sat next to the bathroom and therefore repeatedly got bumped by people and carts as they passed. The stewardess was polite but had an obvious fake smile pasted on her face. A bit more honest facial expression would have been more comfortable."
Pros: "The crew were really efficient and polite"
Cons: "there were no entertainment modules, no place to plug in phones or computers and the chairs didn't lean back."
Pros: "Senator lounge in franfort was very comfortable, showers were good, french champagne, overall good food on the flight and service level very professional"
Cons: "If the flight was longer I would not have minded I enjoy long haul on lufthansa"
Cons: "Flight was canceled with no prior notice and I am requesting a refund."
Cons: "Entertainment was VERY poor - The overhead TVs were glitchy and hard to watch. I purchased Wifi but it never worked. didnt have anything to do.."
Pros: "Comfortable, new aircraft. Good on-board service."
Cons: "Lufthansa should allow seat selection in advance. Other competing carriers do, without a fee (including Brussels Air), and it detracts from the experience to have this uncertainty."
Cons: "I could not make it to flight due to health problems. I was refused to be given another date for the flight."
Pros: "Great crew and planes"
Pros: "Great staff."
Cons: "The time it takes to travel. Can't control that."
Pros: "The seats were so comfortable"
Pros: "Due to business I travel allot so I deal with allot of airlines. This is by far the best airlines I have used. Excellent crew and airport staff. I don’t think words can express how satisfied I am with this airlines and airport. The nicest people and great service. Clean and modern aircraft. Going to try flying only with KLM from now on."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Very nice airplane and pleasant crew"
Pros: "Overall a nice and good flight"
Cons: "Just a detail, my “head holder” (not too sure how it is called) would not hold in position. Also, staff was a bit slow to come after being called, I had to go and ask for water by myself at some point since no one was coming after 15minites of waiting..."
Cons: "Boarding at Florence is always chaotic but this isn't within the control of KLM or their crew."
Cons: "The flight from Manchester to Amsterdam has been delayed which led insufficient time for me to transfer to HK"
Cons: "KLM crew exceed our expectations"
Pros: "Seats super comfy. Ended up with 3 seats to myself that formed a bed for the lap Uk to NZ. Very nice!"
Pros: "Seat was comfy and spacious for economy class"
Cons: "Vegetarian meal was okay but could be more enjoyable if served with bread at start of meal."
Cons: "The flight was a bit delayed, but the airline handled it incredibly well. I was put up in a great hotel with good free food and caught another flight the next morning."
Pros: "the drinks"
Cons: "seat reservation. having to pay for luggage...."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Seat comfort"
Pros: "well mannered and attentive crew - good supply of complimentary food/drink - good over all comfort"
Cons: "boarding was running very far behind - considering this is mainly a hub operations carrier - resulted in several passengers missing their connecting flights -"
Cons: "Need more leg room!!! Larger meals needed."
Cons: "The overall travel was good, no wifi and the entertainment system had a faulty headphone connection, and no place to charge devices other than through a USB port"

Cons: "Nothing special"
Pros: "Interior of the plane was clean. Smooth landing."

Pros: "I got some rest"
Cons: "unable to charge my phone or watch movies"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "crew were absolutely delightful, full of smiles and doing everything to make you comfortable. seats were fine enough and got some work done and a bit of sleep. first lunch was fresh and tasty, but the second, a burger, was edible, but not much more."
Cons: "tv screens are dated so movies are not as crisp as you find in newer planes. you need a 2 prong audio adapter to use your own headphones."
Pros: "Excellent very good"
Cons: "Everting so good ex"
Pros: "Premium economy service was good."
Cons: "Inexplicably, our preassigned seats were changed at checkin and we were put in bulkhead. This particular Boeing aircraft is pretty poorly designed. Especially the bulkhead in premium economy."
Pros: "Due to lightening bolt strike our pre-Y2K era plane got switched out with a newer plane with modern media delivery at the seats."
Cons: "This caused a two hour delay in boarding and another 30 minutes on the JFK T4 tarmac. Same crappy headphones so it wasn’t the"
Pros: "Lovely staff, good food, great movies."
Pros: "I personally do not appreciate the food on this leg of the journey Food Ams to Dxb is GOOD!!"

Pros: "Very friendly and helpful personnel."

Pros: "Entertainment was good, and crew was very nice and accommodating. Flight was very comfortable and smooth."
Cons: "The food was okay, not that great."
Cons: "Flight way delayed 3 hours. Staff gave no information and wouldn't help rebook us onto other flights. They gave us food vouchers 2 minutes before we finally boarded, so we couldn't use them. The food on the plane had spoiled so we were all starving on the flight, and we all missed our connections. Horrible experience and wouldn't fly with KLM again."
Pros: "Easy boarding, plenty of room"
Cons: "Why do the crew have to slam the overhead and catering compartments to get them to shut?"
Pros: "."
Pros: "Same as above"
Pros: "Short, comfortable flight. Nothing special. Got us where we needed to be without incident."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet the min. characters."
Pros: "Spacious cabins, friendly service"
Pros: "Food and drink service"
Cons: "Boarding pass facility"
Pros: "Staff, service"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Overall very nice flight, even comes with free drink and snack"
Pros: "Short flight friendly crew"
Cons: "Good flight nothing to complain about. Was spoiled by the entertainment choices on the longer flights."
Pros: "KLM Is an impressive flying experience. We enjoyed the comfortable seats, the in-flight entertainment, and the food. The flight attendants are top notch as well."
Cons: "The only complaint I have regarding my most recent flight was the incredibly rude service staff whom we experienced at the front counter at check-in. After a harrowing cab ride to the airport in which our driver continuously ignored my request to follow the GPS insisting that he knew faster shortcuts, we arrived 40 minutes later than intended. Additionally he dropped us off at the wrong terminal such that we finally arrived at the KLM gate an hour later than we had planned. This was especially frustrating as we are traveling with two small children and made every effort to be punctual and leave early to be sure we got there with time to spare. Not the case today. All of that I could deal with, but when we arrived at the KLM counter, and I apologized to the attendant staff member that we were late and explained that our cab driver got lost, she responded by chastising us first in Spanish and then in broken English. She made sure to make it clear to us that it was our fault and we should not blame the Argentinian cabdriver. The cabdriver was not actually Argentinian, but that is totally besides the point. I was totally taken aback to be treated so rudely as a greeting at the airline counter. My wife share the same sentiment. Nothing like this has ever happened to us before. Thank God, every single airport personnel and of course KLM staff member on board was incredibly kind and accommodating of our children subsequent to this. It saved what otherwise could've been a terrible experience."
Cons: "The flight was very delayed. We sat on the floor because there was not enough seating. We eventually had to squeeze into buses and drive around the tarmac to find a plane. We lost 5 bags in the process but eventually got them 2 days after arrival. the bags did not show up when we originally were told they would."
Pros: "Fine as delta flights go"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful crew."
Pros: "Staff was excellent. Entertainment options pretty good."
Cons: "Seems very dated. Business Class felt cramped and not very luxurious."
