Pleasant experience.

The Doha airport is a disaster. We almost got late in boarding bcuz of the construction going on. Then, the flight experience is not that good. Seating space is tight.

Check in process at Dubai was not easy. Qatar does not use its own employees they are outsourced.

We had a family traveling to SFO without wearing masks and I have to repeatedly request the flight attendants to ask them to wear their masks. It included elder people to children coughing and sneezing and my seating was amidst them. I had to request the attendant to find me an alternate seating, which turned out to be less comfortable, but better than my allotted seat.

I had an exchange ticket from Qatar airways, which meant I had the boarding pass for the Alaska airways flight. It took 40 minutes to get me and another passenger onto the flight because it didn’t have us listed as a passenger on the flight.

Pros: "No"
Cons: "respect"
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Tvs don’t work. Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Excellent food, service and comfortable seats."
Pros: "Attentive crew. Good selection of meals excellent wines"
Cons: "Took long time to provide food & water."
Pros: "The service was excellent & food satisfying."
Cons: "The liquor variety could be better."
Pros: "Crew courtesy, exceptional service"
Pros: "This review is for return travel from ATL to MAA (Chennai, India) and back. Route: ATL-DOH: about 14.5 hrs; DOH-MAA: about 4.5 hrs; Likes: 1. Baggage check-in process was simple and easy. 2. Meal preferences was good - I'm a vegetarian and on the onward journey forgot to specify the meal preference but the crew had enough inventory to meat the requirements. 3. Every seat was provided with a small plastic pouch/packet/goodie bag that consisted of a eye mask (very thoughtful), pair of sock, toothpaste+brush (very thoughtful), hand cream. This was very useful and effective. 4. Entertainment - options were good and current."
Cons: "Dislikes: 1. Online check-in wasnt easy; towards the end of the process, there is an option to email the boarding pass but this never worked. Not sure if this is something to do with the browser (tried with Firefox, Opera) 2. It would have been good, as part of the online check-in, if the users reminded to specify the meal preferences, etc. I forgot to specify the meal preferences but thankfully the crew had enough of what I wanted. 3. Take a relook at the packaging of the toothpaste tube in the goodie bag. It was sealed in such a way that it was difficult to open it w/o a sharp object. This should have been easier. 4. Seats were the worst part - poor legroom. Worst, the seat cushion is the worst. I think it was just a fabric over a metal seat with minimalist of cushion. ATL to DOH leg was the worst (and the longest leg of the trip). Unless you have open seats next to you it would be a back breaking and painful trip. Seat comfort wise, I would rate Qatar as the worst. Luckily on the return leg (DOH-ATL) next two seats to mine was empty, so was able to stretch and sleep well. DOH-MAA or MAA-DOH seating was little better (think its a older plane; newer planes have worst seats) 5. The website was damn slow while accessing from overseas. Even in the US, at times the website hangs-up, freezes or spins often. 6. Food was ok -dinner and lunch but minimalistic; I didnt see any specific breakfast menu or any coffee served separately (was part of beverage option during lunch or dinner) 7. There was no alert, communication, notification, reminder of upcoming trip via email or text, etc. Many airlines does this very often but Qatar was totally silent on it (they did have my email during checkin). Not sure why."
Pros: "Stopover in Doha fun. The people are so friendly."
Pros: "Service great and on time"
Cons: "Lounge in Cape Town was bad."
Cons: "The flight+all Qater air Way services was canceled but I didn't receive any message or update from kayak. So stressful and bad expiarence."

Pros: "food was good"
Cons: "all my flights were delayed"
Pros: "Nothing, no one was helpful at all."
Cons: "I arrived to the airport 2 hours prior to my departure to find out that my booking was cancelled. I never received a notification or nothing. I purchased a multi-trip and failed to used the ticket I purchased because I had to leave Qatar early since the person I was staying with was disorganized and flew out the country. I then purchased a different ticket with another airline because it was cheaper. Since I did that, they cancelled my whole trip. HOW? And I payed for a service I clearly didn't receive. As a result, stranded, I had to pay an additional $1,125 for a one way ticket home - more than my original round trip multi flight purchase."

Pros: "The food was perfect"
Cons: "Chicken sandwich was not good"
Pros: "The crew, Sami and Juliana in particular, were absolutely amazing!"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The business class was okay and food was good."
Cons: "The entertainment choice not as vast as Emirates that I always experienced"
Pros: "The crew and food were excellent! Great pilot also."
Cons: "Seats were too small and not very cushion for your bottom. Also 3 out of my 4 flights with Qatar were delayed 20-45 minutes after everyone was boarded. Person in front of me 2 of 4 flights had their seat reclined which gave me no room what so ever. It made eating and watching tv uncomfortable."
Pros: "about average"
Pros: "The service, the crew"

The staff were excellent considering it was a jam packed flight. We had to wait nearly an hour for our baggage to appear on the carousel. That was a real shame.

Cons: "The food could have been a bit more exciting, but it was solid."

Cons: "flight delayed as usual"
Pros: "We had a traumatic and abysmal experience for the trip. The flights were delayed, cancelled, wrongly rearranged and we had to run through the airports with no sleep, no food and no clear flight confirmations with minimal to no help from the Cathay Pacific staff."

Cons: "i had a surfboard bag that weighed 11lbs and my daughter had a surfboard bag that weighed 21 lbs and we are being charged $200 each both ways for a total charge of $800 round trip. This is an outragous fee for surfboard and other airlines specificly Alaskian Air, Quanties, and Virgin Australia have been letting us travel with surfboard bags for free that weight 3 times that much. I will never take Cathay Pacific again as we paid more for these flights because we had heard they do not charge for surfboard and they have great service. I had a total of $1200 fspending money for food and transportation for my trip to Bali. That leaves me with $400. Never again will I travel with Cathay Pacific and I will be spreading the word through social Media! Not a Happy Customer!!!"
Pros: "Upgraded to business"
Pros: "Food great, smooth flight. Helpful stewardess. Fairly comfy seats"
Pros: "The plane was great Boeing 350 I think great entertainment system, comfortable seats, and the Singapore new terminal 4 is wounderful"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Very attentive crew. I didnt go hungry or thirsty. Real friendly."
Cons: "Continues to be incinsistent and spotty service."
Pros: "Cathay Pacific was amazing. Great service and great food."
Cons: "I was pushed to a later flight with another company because the plane was overbooked."
Pros: "Cathy Pacific is always in the top 10 airlines of the world for a reason. The staff and service are top of class."
Cons: "The economy seats could recline a little more and be slightly wider for more comfort."
Cons: "Very good"
Pros: "Kind staff, decent food"
Cons: "Ridiculous baggage policy! Only 30 kg total baggage allowance when ALL OTHER AIRLINES ALLOW AT LEAST 40KG, AND MOST ALLOW 46KG! WHY IS CATHAY SO STINGY?!"
Cons: "Would have liked to have been offered a beverage more often"
Pros: "On time Nice crew Good service"
Cons: "No in-flight WiFi was disappointing."
Pros: "The overhead compartments are a good size. The staff was friendly. There was decent legroom in front of the seats. The food was more flavorful than most airlines."
Cons: "In Hong Kong there was an additional security checkpoint set up at the gate. I had to throw away all liquids I purchased. Usually, once you've cleared customs and security checkpoints you can buy food and liquids within the airport and board the flight. Not sure if this was an airport thing or an airline thing. Either way it was highly inconvenient and annoying"
Pros: "The head staff making sure that me and my 4 year old are well taking care off. Super nice staff"
Cons: "The security staff and their approach and way of communicating"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient. Crew did their job pleasantly ."
Cons: "Food was very ordinary, not up to what I expect in business class."
Pros: "The attitude of the staff was very good so also the service . Food was OK ; could be better within the cost parameters ."
Cons: "There wasn't enough choice of entertainment . The snacks offered were good but the refill of exhausted items was not there . Possibly this could be improved ."
Cons: "Seats are terrible"
Pros: "I really appreciated that Cathay flew another plane in to pick us up when our original aircraft was mechanically grounded at the previous destination. The crew were very professional."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed due to mechanical failure and didn't arrive from its destination: Taipei. We were not told about the possibility of our flight being cancelled as we arrived at check-in, we were allowed to check our bags first, issued boarding passes and *then* we were told to come back to check in counter in 3.5-4 hours. Our checked luggage had already been taken and with it, clean clothes, toiletries and other items that could have made the waiting more comfortable. After coffee and a snack we decided to check in to the capsule hotel at Narita. Minimum stay was one night at that hour of the day - for stays after 6pm. While I appreciated that Cathay got us out later that evening, the plane we flew was one of the oldest in the fleet: the seats did not recline at all so it was very uncomfortable. It was a late night flight but no one was offered pillows or blankets. (I did receive one upon request). We arrived in Hong Kong in the early hours of the next morning - 3 hours late - after the airport train had finished running so I paid for a taxi home which I normally would not need to do since I already had a train ticket. so my flight experience did cost me some extra money this trip."
Pros: "I will give 10 out of 10 to Cathay for their excellent service, fast air time, humble crew service and a bonus point for their quality of meals/ food. I am a pure vegetarian & in all my flight the crew made sure that I got the correct food tray & it was not mixed with wrong mean (non veg.) by mistake. Unlike other flight where meal is just an obligation, Cathay made sure that the taste was very nice too. Full points to them. The quality of seats was good & nice leg space as well. The layover was way shortest as compared to other competitor flights. Overall the experiance was very pleasant & I highly recommend Cathay Pacific."
Cons: "The cushions were uncomfortable for a 14 hr trip. Not much choices in food. The omelette was bland."
Pros: "Good, entertainment, staff were nice."
Cons: "Not much to complain about."
Pros: "Ease of boarding."
Cons: "Only served 2 meals the whole 15 hrs flight."
Pros: "Cathay Pacific takes great care of you. The food is good (for airline food anyway), the staff is helpful, and there is a pretty good selection of free movies. I would definitely fly with them again."
Pros: "Good"
Pros: "The crew was more than accommodating. The little amenities helped for such a long flight."
Cons: "16 hours in economy. There is no way to be comfortable on any plane."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and accommodating"
Cons: "Flight was delayed to depart so I missed connecting flight in Hong Kong."
Cons: "Food was awful. Plenty of options but tasted cheap. Felt like flying on a budget airline"

Thank you

I don’t like this lines because my flight from Zurich to wasaw was canceled and I spend 8 h in Zurich airpot for nothing

Both planes were uncomfortably warm

The flight crew directed me to the wrong aisle during the boarding process. Reaching my seat while pulling my luggage around was a hassle for me, as well as for the other passengers. One of the crew members almost refused to let me bring my carry-on onboard because they thought it wouldn’t fit in the overhead cabins. I use this bag for all my travels, and when it came to storing it above my seat, it fit. 2 other luggages fit alongside it without issue. That person made unnecessary hassle for me and left me feeling uncomfortable at the possibility of having to pay extra fees because of their incorrect and unneeded opinion. The entertainment was extremely limited with about 10 movies available, as well as 7 shows. This was a 15 hour flight, so it would have been nice to have more options.

Flight was canceled and had to stay overnight

Cons: "Too much nonsense with carry on and check in language. I paid for my seat but they changed it for better balance of the plain. Really I weigh 165 lbs. Once the plane reaches altitude they let me take my seat. However the plane was barely occupied and somebody with closer and took my seat."
Pros: "Good AC - very important, calm and nice atmosphere. Very friendly staff."
Pros: "This was my first and last time I will ever fly with Swiss airline-it’s been 4 days and I still didn’t receive my baggage and I had all my medicines in them,that’s including my carry on bag too,because it was taking from me @ the gate and I was told I will get it at my final destination,which I didn"
Cons: "I just would like to get my baggage- which is been 4 days since my arrival and they can’t even tell me where they are at!!!...."
Cons: "Don’t overbook trafficking of flights, I barely made my connection. My colleague missed this same flight last week and had to spend the night in Zürich. I hope this is not a trend because I will not fly Swiss anymore, as I can not have lost evenings due to flight delays."
Pros: "None"
Cons: "Seats"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Valencia is probably the least user friendly airport. Security personnel there are unbearable. Boarding took unnecessarily long. Luggage took close to 30 min in Zurich"
Pros: "Full array of entertainment."
Cons: "Seats were not too comfortable."
Pros: "Some of the best airplane food I’ve had."
Pros: "Even though we flew through turbulances the crew was able to manage their tasks. Plus beautiful stewardess."

Pros: "Responsive excellent crew."
Cons: "Long waits to get to the bathroom. Plane dated."
Pros: "Punctual modern aircraft."
Cons: "The onky bad thing was luggage collection. Belt 6 tucked away. The luggage was so quick coming off that there was no-one to collect it . The belt was soon full and no.more luggage could enter the belt until the luggage on the belt was claimed"
Cons: "Food selection was a bit short"
Cons: "Older plane with poor seat comfort. (Same trip Bos to Zurich much better.) Video did not work at all in one seat and poorly in other ,for 7 hr flight"
Cons: "Plane missed connection in Zurich. Transferred next day to United who charged us another $120 for extra baggage, which we already paid at Swiss. We would like reimbursement. Gyula E Balogh"
Pros: "the premium economy section was very pleasant, well worth the $150 upgrade price. Though they should have included priority boarding."
Cons: "One hour delay in boarding, two hours sitting on the tarmac due to cargo loading and overweight issues. No notices, very poor communication."
Pros: "Missed this flight because the first one was late"
Cons: "We (parents) were business class, but our two kids in coach, yet Swiss doesn’t allow “guests” in the lounge. Hmmm. What a bunch of BS."
Pros: "Nice crew, nice plane"
Cons: "Late arrival at Dubai, late departure and late at final destination...No information given to passangers!"
Cons: "Not on time at all. Toooooo late boarding"
Pros: "Service"

Pros: "Professional crew"
Cons: "Legroom!!!"
Pros: "The way of treatment"
Cons: "The landing was terrible"
Pros: "We were very impressed by our flight with Swiss. The staff speaks impeccable English, there is much more leg room than on flights with American companies, and it is so pleasant to get pillows, blankets, headphones, drinks (including wine), snacks and 2 meals on our international flight and not feel nickle and dimed the way we do now on domestic flights."
Pros: "Flight was fine. The attendants on board were friendly and efficient. The food was nice though there wasn't much variety in drinks."
Cons: "It was awful getting boarding passes and paying for check in luggage in Venice. I assumed we couldn't check in early online much like the earlier Lufthansa flight. Then when we got to the airport there were long lines to check in and no machines to self check in. When we finally got to the front of the line the woman said we had to pay for our checked baggage elsewhere and then come back for the boarding passes. Unheard of elsewhere. The people in the office where you pay for checked baggage took their time and chatted and had no sense of urgency. The first woman we spoke to apparently filled out the form incorrectly. We had to rush to get to the plane and we barely made it through long security lines. We almost missed the plane due to the lack of early information and check in, the cumbersome payment process, etc. It was the worst check in process ever."
Pros: "We actually did not fly with Swiss Airlines to Thessaloniki. Our flight was re-booked on another flight the following day with Aegean."
Pros: "You treated me with respect. That was appreciated compared to the many other airlines I traveled on during the past two weeks. I was not just someone herded into the airline."
Pros: "The new aircraft"
Cons: "Lavatory wasn't clean enough"
Cons: "The seats are too close together front to back. It's torture if you are six feet tall and the person in front of you put the seat in the back position for 8 hours."
Cons: "No announcement regarding delay. No boarding announcement. Very uncomfortable, older business seats. Actually had a sore back after the flight. Couldn't get comfortable. Travelling companion had the same experience. Small screen."
Pros: "Enjoyed the service."
Pros: "Priority boarding, quick boarding, efficient service"
Cons: "Dirty bathroom, late take off/late arrival, non-gluten free or healthy options for food"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly, everything was on time and extremely efficient. I don't have kids but I did notice how great the flight attendants were with the kids around me. Great job! Already recommended SWISS to friends and family"
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Loved the entertainment. Food was great!"
Cons: "There was no indication of what line went where while in the boarding process. Nobody told us that we needed to get a blue stamp (??) on our boarding ticket, for what I still don't know. So then we needed to get in ANOTHER line and get the stamp and then stand in line AGAIN just to get on the plane! For being Swiss you'd think you'd have this part down AT LEAST! Boarding by seat number would have been a better idea. Everybody was all over the place getting their bags stored above."
Pros: "The new 777-300 is great. besides the disorganized boarding, everything else was great!"
Pros: "I like Swiss in general"
Cons: "Although on time for boarding, there was a long delay before take off, which made our connection very close!"
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "It was good"
Pros: "Swiss planes were clean and everything worked. Flight attendants very friendly. Food was superb. Plus, the connection in Zurich, as always, was seamless and painless. Will definitely give Swiss my preference when looking at trans Atlantic flights."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Service and staff were outstanding and would love to use them again!"
Cons: "All was great!"
Pros: "Everything was great while aboard!"
Cons: "I wished to upgrade to business for aditonal $1000 which resulted in a 15 wait . There was only one person allowed to do that and she was obviously owerwhalmed. I got a smile out of her eventually but the whole process seemed wrong considering the amount of money i spent on that ticket:( Wish whomever I got to first at the counter were able to make the change and spare me the walking around and waiting."
Cons: "Even though I ordered in plenty of time, I was not on their list. I went hungry."

This Delta flight was operated by WestJet .. we didn’t know until after booking. Delta advertised free baggage check however WestJet charged us a total of 120 dollars for this. This also didn’t allow us to do online check in using WestJet app as there was an outstanding fee for baggage.. I had to hold for over an hour on our outbound flight to do this. Returning was the same although we decided to physically check in early to avoid this hold time. When we checked in the agent told us we had been put on the standby list and only just made the flight. So despite prepaying for the tickets and reserving the seats we still didn’t apparently have a guarantee of being on the flight.. very concerning. He assigned us other seats and then actually had to ask us if we had paid for our baggage.. again very strange. We paid and didn’t complain as it wasn’t his fault. We did over hear other travellers with the same issue though. Airlines need to be more organized in my opinion.. apps that need upgrading and the apparent overbooking of flights makes just the journey more stressful knowing that there is a possibility that you may not get on your flight despite prepaying and reserving and paying for seating and baggage.. what is going on?

There was a standard cabin crew + trainers and trainees. The cabin service could not have been better.

Mediocre food in First Class, I had better food in Economy.

The 2 hour delayed and the seats were very uncomfortable for economy

Even tho we paid to have seat next to each other we had to give them up, and my husband who just had major surgery on his hand was given an isle seat which was part of the reason we PAID to have seats next to each other and him in a middle seat

Cons: "flight left without 1/6 of the passengers. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯"
Cons: "Poor communication on delays. No wifi. No service. Couldn’t use lavatory."
Cons: "Provide earphones or headphones"
Pros: "Everything except the delay was fine, not extraordinary."
Cons: "7-hour flight delay. If this was a European flight we would have been entitled to at least $250 for our inconvenience. We were not offered anything to compensate us for a 7hour delay, which was ridiculous."

Cons: "No offers of sandwiches on a 4 hour flight. Smooth flight - very good crew."
Pros: "The comfort, space, quiet, snacks"

Cons: "No one would reissue me a ticket for the next flight. Delta and West Jet kept saying the other company should do this, and in the end no one did and I had to purchase another ticket."
Pros: "Stewardesses were sympathetic but could do nothing."
Cons: "A few flurries out of Philadelphia and flight is delayed 2.5 hrs, we therefore miss our connection and all they wanted us to do was spend 2 days in airport until next flight. Finally reached a compassionate soul at customer service who got creative and routed us to BCN via ATL, Miami and Madrid."
Pros: "Once we boarded the plane, we still had to wait for the pilots to arrive and then for them to run through their pre-flight checking before we could get underway."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and the departure gate moved at the Atlanta airport 3 times to 3 different concourses before we were finally able to depart around 1 hour later than scheduled."
Pros: "The flight attendant in Delta Comfort/Main Cabin was very nice and made for an excellent trip. Smooth ride and on time. I like that!"
Pros: "No complaints. A puddle-hopper to a yes."
Pros: "All that one would want."
Pros: "Smaller plane, aisle seat with a lot of leg room (5c), smooth flight"
Cons: "Shorter flight so no snacks/drinks were served, although requests were fulfilled."
Cons: "No space in the seats"
Pros: "Wonderful experience with the staff."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "More entertainment options were added. Thank you"
Cons: "It didn't fly fast enough. Jk. Not much to say"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and incredible kind staff"
Cons: "No food, drinks, or entertainment. But it was an extremely short flight."
Cons: "The entry into the Atlanta airport after landing was somewhat chaotic. We were backed up circling before landing for ~ 1 hour and there seemed to be an unusually large number of folks trying to get through customs/security - noe Delta's fault but an unwelcome experience after being in the air for 8+ hours."
Pros: "They were courteous and prepared, when they couldn't offer something they gave me options for other things, and seemed genuinely concerned about my experience!"
Cons: "i don't have any real complaints. Economy seating is still economy seating, so those problems didn't go away"
Pros: "Delta flight attendants ultimately removing the passenger."
Cons: "The man that called the mother and her son a "F***** b****"."
Cons: "No westjet checkin area and no signage. Staff didn't know what was going on."
Pros: "The crew kept it together even though the situation was stacked against them."
Cons: "The plane was really late, changed gates a number of times and switched from one terminal to another then back to the original terminal again. My understanding was this flight was a mess the previous week as well which says that something needs to be fixed. The temperature on the flight fluctuated back and forth from too hot to okay. You get the picture."
Cons: "Delta connect carrier not good for comfort seating and service. Would not fly them again. Would go to another airline iinstead."

I traveled Lufthansa many times in the past when they had Portland-Frankfurt direct flights. The service and food was superior on those flights compared to what I experienced on this recent flight. Food was terrible. Drink service came by once with no follow up. (would have like a second glass of wine). Entertainment selections were boring. (too much Tom Cruise!) Headphones did not work at all. Overall, a very disappointing experience. I question if I'd fly Lufthansa again.

Service was ok Entertainment unacceptable Ten hours flight without any entertainment!!! At all!!!!!!!

Please see other message. One flight was cancelled and neither Lufthansa or Air cañada would book me on another flight as they did not have me in their computer(with the numbers you assisted me with) HELP

For a long journey, left on subbusiness class where the fully reclaining seat makes all the difference.

9 hour flight with the worst airline food I ever had- cheese looked like it got wet and dissolved into the dried out bread. it. Completely full plane. Paid $82 to check one of our carry on bags because it had some silverware with knifes in it then was informed that because the plane was full, we were advised check our carry on for free- but no refund for the $ we paid. Hot and stuffy. On the plus side, when the movie monitor didn't work, the stewardesses were right on top of the problem and fixed it even though it took some effort.

Good

I want my refund back I request change flight date no one answer me

I have one comment for this trip, sardine, pandemic and everything, and plane was maxed. It was horrible. Staff was great but, this was horrible.

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew was amazing. I will never fly to Europe with anyone else. No joke. Best flying expierence ever."
Cons: "Honestly nothing. From start to finish great time."
Cons: "Flight left without us even though they knew our flight had landed and we were on our way. Then they rerouted us with a longer flight and our luggage didn’t make it."
Cons: "Self-check-in at Munich was unnecessarily complex. Same for procedure to check in luggage. Also, the passport had to be inspected twice despite being already in the secure zone."
Cons: "- The extra baggage fees were 5 times higher than the announced on the website which caused a lot of troubles. - The booked special meals (halal) were too spicy and not proper for children at all ( we just wanted normal meals without non-halal ingredients. - No basic medications on the first flight."
Pros: "Just about brand new Airbus airplane, very nice! Everything worked, seats reasonably comfortable for a long flight. Boarding worked well by area of the plane, friendly crew."
Pros: "It was nice trip and comfortable"
Pros: "Friendly staff, great attention to travelers who need assistance!!!it"
Cons: "Chaos boarding process"
Pros: "The crew is attentive and friendly The seats are flat-lay"
Cons: "The food is mediocre at best Seats are narrow"
Pros: "Loved it!"
Cons: "Liked it all"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and great movie selection. They also had books and games for kids."
Cons: "The food was good but could have been better."
Pros: "easy boarding, great flight attendants"
Cons: "Luggage lost"
Cons: "I was waiting over 1 hr for my suitcase...."
Pros: "The food was better than average. Portions were good and it was tasty. Movie selection was also great and included many recent releases. They provided a hot towel service bedorw and after meals which I loved."
Cons: "Boarding was slow and the plane waited almost an hour after boarding was completed."
Pros: "The fact that I could have upgraded to premium economy. The space available in economy."
Cons: "The length of the flight but it is what it is. I couldn't upgrade to premium economy before arriving at the airport because of this being a code share flight with Lufthansa."
Pros: "Needed to cancel trip - had insurance I thought was good"
Cons: "it sucked !!!!!! someone had to die before they covered cancellation"
Pros: "Food is provided"
Cons: "Delayed 6 hours on the plane"
Pros: "Excellent service from staff on the flight"
Cons: "Long line-up in Frankfurt at Lufthansa Passport control . Could probably open up the third counter and not just one Business and one Economy? First meal ( Turkey) had something in it that blowded me up all the way to Vancouver! Not sure if it was the vegetables or?? Not nice if you can't walk around and also not great for your neighbor to the right and left. I usually don't experience this with my food that I cook or choose."
Pros: "I travel in so many airline but lufthasen is very good airline i want to travel again"
Pros: "Individual screens for all seats with a varied selection of entertainment options. Plenty of room under the seat for my carry-on. (It helped that no one was in the seat next to me.) Beverages were offered frequently. Smooth flight, smooth landing."
Pros: "Thank goodness the movies were good."
Cons: "Had to wait in 5 lines before someone could check our bags. no organization at boarding time. Just a free for all."
Cons: "We called customer service to change our seats to an aisle seat on both of our flights due to a knee injury and the representative changed them for us after trying to make excuses that she couldn't. When we boarded we found out she gave us BOTH middle seats in the middle of the plane on both flights, she lied to us about them."
Pros: "Air Canada could learn a few things from you - ie, the incredible impact of providing free food and excellence customer service at the checkout and gates."
Pros: "Not a good experience overall."
Cons: "Our luggage did not arrive in Naples with us. We heard nothing from Lufthansa despite making numerous attempts to email and call the airline. Our hotel tried to call as well to see if someone could at least tell us if and when our luggage might arrive.We had to go out and buy clothes and personal items. It was a terrible way to start a holiday."
Pros: "I liked professionalisam of the flight crew from the start till the end of the flight. They were always nice and ready to serve on 10 hours flight."
Cons: "None"
Cons: "Flight got canceled and never got new flight! Also never got money back!"
Pros: "Seats were decent 36A, entertainment was very good, also paid full r WiFi access which made a 10 hour flight more bearable. Food was ok, nothing special."
Cons: "huge plane, no space. painful."
Cons: "Too many controls during boarding"
Pros: "It was a smooth ride overall, the staff was comfort us."
Cons: "The food was terrible is like each year the value goes down."
Pros: "Taking off was good"
Cons: "Landing was a little bit stressful. But still ok."
Pros: "Excellent steward."
Cons: "This Air Canada flight was operated by Lufthansa and was cancelled due to the strike. So, this means that I am still in Germany which is not the worst place in the world to be stuck, especially because my parents live here. So a few day longer are not a problem for me, but if it takes a week, it is not good because I am supposed to be at work and I am using up vacation I had planned to spent with my family."
Pros: "Loved the personal TV screen, meals, friendly service, competitive pricing, arriving even earlier than scheduled, on time departures."
Cons: "I wished the blankets were warmer. Maybe a fleece. I was cold part way through the flight, even with the blanket provided."
Cons: "No boarding lines. Boarded late. I was not given enough time from my arriving flight. I had to spring the length of the airport and up and down stairs as the elevators had long lines. Maybe it was good it boarded late or I wouldn't have made it."
Cons: "Ticket written on Air Canada but Lufthansa was carrier. Not possible to check-in on line leaving very few choices for seating. Tried to check-in on Sunday for Monday flight -- system errors resulted and phone number provided by system only works M-Sat. My initial leg was on Iberia and they could not check me in for entire flight. Major scramble in Frankfort to resolve issues. Never again!"
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."
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "we had to cut our trip short and book an immediate flight home on Lufthansa. The staff took excellent care of us. Even offered us some orange juice and milk to take home knowing that we may need it (being away for a while) and knowing that our first priority was to get to a hospital. These little events shows the extreme compassion from Lufthansa's on-board staff. We will now ALWAYS look to fly Lufthansa whenever possible."
Pros: "crew was very nice engaging. shopping at Munich airport was unexpectedly good."
Cons: "My seat didn't recline. I changed seats with my sister mid flight so I could sleep."
Pros: "Excellent service, great airplane, and a high level of professionalism on the part of all Lufthansa crew members. I felt pampered."
Cons: "I was in the next to last row in economy class. The person ahead of me put his seat back as far as it would go. that is his right. Behind me were two friends traveling with me. I doubt if their seats reclined (the last row) so I did not attempt to recline my seat. As a result I was a true "sardine". There was so little space between my face and the seat back ahead of me I could not look at the video screen, which was positioned at an angle when the seat was back. I just closed my eyes and let it pass. Economy plus next time? I have long legs."
