Cons: "The plane was SO hot and stuffy. It was an overnight flight, so they passed out blankets—but it was so hot no one used them. The air was stale, to the point of feeling claustrophobic."
Cons: "Delayed flight and delayed layover"
Pros: "Everything was just dandy!"
Pros: "Very nice crew. The flight attendant brought me a second dessert after I raved about it (excellent strawberry mousse!) Warm croissants and bread for breakfast! The even came with seconds. Yes! Delicious Easter eggs on both flights. Good selection of movies"
Cons: "The width of the seats. Tricky to have that elbow rest, it is you or your neighbor!"
Cons: "Check in was annoying in Paris as we had to go to ticket counter, and then go to a different counter to pay for luggage. Annoyed in the first place to have to pay for 2 checked bags on international flight, but to have to go into three separate lines in order to do so was pouring salt into a wound."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very understanding."
Cons: "I requested a basinet for my infant daughter and I paid a total of $98.93 extra, but on the plane they told me they didn't know anything about that and they didn't have any basinet. I called Swiss as soon as I landed, and I've told my request was sent but it was never confirmed. They also told me they will send me an email when the basinet for the return flight is confirmed. At this point, I'm not even sure what I paid the $98.93 for."
Pros: "The business class ground crew proposed to check in our hand baggage and were very helpful. (We were in economy class) It was my birthday and i was very touched to receive a spontaneously made card and some chocolate truffles and a smile from the flight crew."
Cons: "I think the choice of films could be improved."
Pros: "We called for seats 23 hours prior to flight. To our amazement we were assigned to an exit row."
Cons: "It was an easy 2.5 hrs. flight at which a small warm quiche was served. Nice surprise."
Cons: "Despite listing items desired for breakfast per seat assignment, flight attendant still got it wrong."
Pros: "Very attentive staff, good food and drinks."
Cons: "We paid for upgraded seats that were still very tight."
Pros: "A very pleasant and efficient experience. The gate personnel were very helpful with a boarding pass snafu. We decided to check a bag, and the automated option saved us a lot of time and was very easy."
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Ithe check in counter was open about an hour before departure, having passengers waiting in line for almost two hours. Thhe departure was later than scheduled, I did ask for assistance in Zurich airport and got none. Almost missed my connection flight due to poor health conditions and less than expected lay over time."
Pros: "Since the flight from Palermo was 1hr. late. Swiss air took us privately to check our passports and directly into the plane. That was Excellent Or we would have missed our flight. We made it into the plane, too bad our luggage din`t."
Cons: "Not enough room between seats for international flight."
Pros: "Everything! Very professional, great food"
Pros: "We were about on time"
Cons: "No power outlet, cramped due to passenger reclined fully also made using entertainment screen impossible."
Pros: "The flight itself was very enjoyable. The only negative aspect was that the first leg of the flight was delayed long enough that I almost missed my connecting flight and my baggage was lost."
Cons: "The real reason for the negative review is a combination of the cost of this flight, loss of my baggage and poor service after the flight. I paid nearly $4,500 for an economy ticket from New York to New Delhi. The first leg of the flight, from New York to Zurich was delayed long enough that I made my connecting flight to Delhi within seconds of them closing the gate and as a result my baggage was lost. Once I got to Delhi I had to take a connecting flight to Goa and then drive an hour to my destination, where I was attending a good friend's wedding. All of my baggage was lost during transit by the airline, and unfortunately they never delivered by baggage to my hotel...so I was without formal clothes and normal clothes for the wedding for 4 days. The customer service line was no help, and the airline refused to deliver the baggage to me...the closest they would bring it was the Goa airport which was an hour and a half away."
Pros: "There was water to drink"
Cons: "Plane felt like a 1990 air France flight. Cabin dated. The least amount of room I can remember on a plane. When sitting upright and the person in front reclined, i looked at their head and if I crossed my arms, it would touch the seat in front. Could not pick up pillow that dropped on the floor, could not bend around the seat in front. Very hard to get out to use the toilet. Felt very claustrophobic."
Pros: "See / hear the middle-aged guy around seat 22 aisle coughing his lungs out throughout the 10 hour flight without once covering his mouth ? WTF is going on w an airline that would let a passenger behave like this ? Didn’t see the attendants offering a cough drop, or asking if he would please behave like a civilized human being. Looking for others corroboration. Spread the word like this guy this w his germs"
Cons: "A grown man coughing loudly during a 10 hr flight w/o once covering his mouth"
Pros: "I loved Swiss flights.. its staff and in flight expereince"
Pros: "Stewards are very kind and friendly unlike those in US flights."
Pros: "Loved my experience with Swiss airlines. Comfortable and pleasant flight."
Pros: "Service was remarkable - food far superior! Will be my airline of choice going overseas."
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Waiting in line in NYC for take off was about 50 minutes. Small seat space with annoying passengers who watch movies all night with bright screens or push and press my seat all the time. Earplug is uncomfortable, breakfast is plain, hot chocolate is horrible. It was a full flight and we even lost my daughter's cardigan."
Pros: "The service on board was excellent, I would use this airlines in the future..."
Pros: "Has been 6 days and my luggage is still lost. Doubt I will see it again. It did have a nice luggage tag on it with all the info needed to track me down."
Pros: "It was comfortable."
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "The flight attendants were exceptionally nice - a real pleasure. Food was also quite good and the chocolate passing out is a super excellent treat."
Cons: "It is disappointing, on an 8+ hour flight, to have the entertainment system broken. The crew was apologetic, but it still is really lame. Made the flight oppressively long."
Pros: "The seat, the airport, the service"
Cons: "The tight connection"
Pros: "The veggie food option was delicious. The calzone for breakfast was miserable. The restrooms were kept clean and well-stocked. Flight delay to wait for incoming passengers resulted in others missing their connections in SF."
Pros: "I'm very satisfied with Swiss airline excellent service starting from the flight attenders very professional friendly excellent food .if I would recommend this airline absolutely 100%.."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic Crew was friendly but rarely came through Offering water during a 12 hr flight Also did not enforce "shades down" during the The night And did not respond to call lights"
Pros: "The whole trip was handled extremely well. First time we've done 12 hrs straight in the air. They made the experience seem like it was much less. Will fly that airline again."
Pros: "Best entertainment package of Movies/TV/Food available on commercial airlines."
Pros: "Crew was great. Very helpful because I needed assistance due to back injury."
Cons: "Food was not very good."
Cons: "There was a supposed difficulty with my entry in Europe when I tried to Check into Chicago. I thought that I had to cancel my flight. Swiss air representatives had to do much consultation, which took nearly an hour, while I was standing there the whole time. At the end, I was thanked for my patience and told all should be well and not even given a small upgrade for the distress this caused me. Traveling is disagreeable in general now, and personally, even moreso after this episode."
Pros: "El espacio dentro de la cabina y la atención de la tripulación. Me informaron de la inmediatez de mi siguiente conexión"
Cons: "100% of our checked luggage was lost and two days into our one week biking trip in Sweden we have heard NOTHING from Swiss Air. No knowledge of where the four large bags are, no follow up and no help. Basically, we have been left with biking clothing and little hope that our bags will show up before we leave Sweden. Unacceptable and we will NEVER fly this airlines again."
Cons: "I had a good seat, the plane was comfortable and the crew was nice"
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: "Night flight. Food is fine."
Pros: "Crew was excellent, and the food was both ample and appetizing."
Cons: "The boarding process is a little chaotic for the economy cabin since there is no distinctions by zone or seat row. The result is a bit of a surge when they first announce the boarding of the cabin."
Pros: "I did not like anything about this flight"
Cons: "My flight has been cancelled with no ecplonation. They reissue e ticket for me under different name. The crew were very rude . My suitcase was lost and still I have not received it . They promised to deliver ."
Pros: "Nicer plane, on time"
Pros: "Staff were nice"
Cons: "Very old plane. Had a big metal box at my feet, could not stretch out. Tv screens old and hard to watch. Food was pretty bleak too. Very disappointed."
Pros: "This flight was absolutely amazing the staff, boarding , food entertainment and comfort were highly delightful I would book again with Swiss Airlines in a heartbeat thank you so much kayak you are amazing"
Pros: "on time flight; friendly staff"
Cons: "a little warm before takeoff; I did online check-in and I did not get the SMS with the link to download boarding pass; tried twice and didn't work; I've got in on email as luckily I had access to an wifi"
Pros: "Online check in did not work at all despite being a member. Could not get my seat which was super annoying. The desk person said my bag was too big despite being carry on size. He offered me business class but I wanted a window so I was further back. When I got on the plane I told the cabin crew I'd been offered row 3 and decided I'd rather be there and they acted like I was nuts. Not I,pressed."
Cons: "Not much"
Both outbound to JFK and inbound from Atlanta the food options were very poor for a ticket selling at £2,500 when we left. A330 seats were more comfortable than the new A350 and wider, crew were far better on the 330 also. The cabin being smaller felt safer given the current issues.
The new business class configuration isn't the best. Knees keep bumping. The seat area wasn't the cleanest either. There was an orange peel on the floor. Meal - mediocre.
Was not let to board as the site failed to notify me if a friend purchased the ticket they need to be present at check in. Now we are not able to get a refund and paid for a ticket we will never use. Ridiculous rules as I fly from London and she lives in the US. How can she be present to show her card. $480 down the drain on top of that I had to purchase a ticket at the airport since I was already there
Pros: "Comfortable seating, pleasant food and entertainment."
Cons: "Not being charged $1200 for a ticket that I already bought, but had been voided with no notice. And Virgin Atlantic staff not friendly or helpful in any way with this situation."
Cons: "Staff were unhelpful and ran out of many food items by the time we were served - meaning that there wasn’t anything available for us to eat as we don’t eat eggs. The check-in was stressful and staff were keen to help - unprofessional and unsatisfactory."
Pros: "Very friendly crew. We boarded about an hour before so we were ready to go well before time."
Cons: "The economy seats are not that comfortable and the screen for entertainment is sometimes difficult to use."
Pros: "Great crew. Very kind and efficient."
Cons: "American carriers seem to enjoy poor seat ergonomics."
Pros: "Everything! From check-in all the way to the landing of the plane I was really satisfied! There were a couple crew members that really made the flight feel so at-home/friendly that one could not help but just smile and relax in the flight. Awesome job crew on Flight VA69!"
Cons: "I wish my partner and his family were with my parents and I on the flight to enjoy the experience we had as well."
Pros: "Business class on the 737 is somewhat basic compared to Virgin Australia's A330, but you still get the same great service, and the food is terrific."
Pros: "Not crowded. Crew was good."
Cons: "Not taking a bus to board the plane."
Pros: "The business class seats are the best we’ve had. Plenty of room, nicely laid out, good organization design. The blankets were fluffy and very comfortable. Crew was super attentive and friendly. For such a long flight, it was very pleasant, will highly recommend."
Cons: "at last minute itinerary was changed.. instead of routing through Brisbane, was now routed through Sydney. Flight from Sydney to LAX was delayed by 4 hours, then missed flight LAX to LAS... overall long delayed arrival. Checked the route through Brisbane, and those flights we're all there, departed and landed all on-time... so wondering what the reason was for the change of the itinerary without a cause (no cancel or delayed flights through Brisbane)"
Pros: "The airplane was quiet My seat did not recline, but was seated in a different place where the seat reclined Bathrooms were clean and plenty"
Cons: "The remote controls for the entertainment system That you can’t reach the vents when you have to be buckled"
Pros: "Sharp good atention in counter"
Pros: "- Presence of entire box sets of some TV shows was a nice touch that I made good use of."
Cons: "- EVERY damn movie is prefaced by 4 minutes of ads. - The touchscreens (at least in economy) are slow resistive screens that are horrible for fine control gestures (like slightly changing the volume or position)"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Lack of business class seats and no premium economy seats on this flight"
Pros: "While seats were close together (little knee space), the plane was 1/2 full, so lots of space in adjoining seats. Nice crew."
Cons: "Delay in boarding - not clear why. Can never get the wireless entertainment system to work."
Cons: "Seatback TV is of the worst quality among airlines. They really need to upgrade those. They don’t nearly give enough beverage and water. The gate wasn’t announced till last minute. There was no group priorities when boarding. Process was chaotic. Food was meh. No internet."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that my seat was between 2 small children that belonged to a family sitting behind me .It was ridiculous to put a stranger on a 10 hour flight with a 3yrar old on one side and a 5 year old on the other"
Pros: "Great, friendly, professional crew, clean comfortable plane. Loved that full dinner and baggage and wine was included in an economy class overnight from DC to London as well as breakfast. Best flight in a long time, will definitely fly again."
Cons: "the tv screen's touch screen capabilities could use an upgrade, it was a hassle to navigate, not very sensitive to touch."
Pros: "Food and service was ok"
Cons: "Delayed at the airport. Very little leg room and hot while waiting to yake off. Entertainment was really bad. Bad screen and sound quality was awful."
Cons: "I had to be rebooked on a later flight due to weather in London; this was obviously not the airline's fault. Because I took a later flight I missed my connection in London."
Pros: "The personal care and attention."
Cons: "Old movies and few entertainment choices"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and attentive through out flight."
Pros: "No one would update that the flight was delayed. They would not even communicate as to why delayed and would not put us in a different flight. Absolutely no customer service. Disappointed and would not fly jet airways again . I missed my conference lecture today as I was late."
Cons: "No communication, nor will they tell you why it's late . Nor will they move you to another flight even wen requested"
Pros: "A large selection of movies, shows and music to choose from. Flight crews were attentive and friendly."
Cons: "The narrow space between each rows for passengers to move from their seats."
Pros: "I felt that they were very thoughtful about the fact that it was a long flight. We got two small meals, which was perfect, and even a little gift bag with a sleep mask and toothbrush and such in it. These were just a couple of the many nice touches included in the flight."
Cons: "Very small quibble: the screen resolution, or maybe the contrast, of the personal video players was not so great. This was fine in most cases, but it meant I could not watch videos that had subtitles. Not a big deal but possibly worth fixing. Thanks"
Pros: "Hard product and food"
Cons: "Crew need to realise their voices travel and some conversations the whole upper cabin don't need to hear"
Pros: "Not having to pay for a checked bag. The check-in process was very easy The bag drop-off line was pretty speedy."
Cons: "The airline stewardesses moved very noisy passengers next to me and talked to them the whole flight."
Pros: "Food, crew and overall experience was good"
Cons: "Got assigned seats all the way in the back. They were comfortable but would have preferred better seats."
Pros: "Smooth boarding process"
Cons: "Delays caused us to miss our flight from London to Vienna"

Cons: "I'm 6'4" and there was no acknowledgement by the crew that I was squashed into a tight seat."

Pros: "Food was very good crew were pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "Seats are very hard"
Pros: "Superior comfort, class, and style. The crew was friendly and accommodating, the pilots kept you up to date with flight info and departure/arrival time (and kept the seat belt light off almost the entire trip), the food was delicious and offered throughout, and the entertainment was top notch. Seats were comfortable (we had bulkhead row Space+ and they were worth every cent for the international long haul from LAX-BNE and SYD-LAX) and everyone got a pillow/blanket. We got premium noise-canceling headsets, water, and a little care kit including an eye mask and earplugs and a pen to fill out your travel documents. The overhead bin space was huge and we got two free checked bags of luggage up to 50lbs each (I don't know of that's standard or not, or if it came with Space+ seats). SERIOUSLY the best airline."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing. For a long haul flight, Virgin Australia is TOP NOTCH!"
Pros: "Flight was on the emptier side, so my boyfriend and I each got our own entire rows to lay down and sleep the entire flight. Which was great, since I had just spent 6h vomiting from bali belly on the previous flight. Liked that they accommodated my GF meal."
Pros: "It was a great experince we enjoy the flight other than the delay on the luggage"
Cons: "one of my luggage was lost and delayed for 2hrs. We waited at the Airport for the luggage to arrive."
Cons: "The cabin was extremely dirty, the food was awful."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment was above average and the seats were decent"
Cons: "The attitude of the cabin crew was generally poor; at one point when I returned the post meal rubbish one member of crew commented to another on the lack of wrappers in my rubbish the other crew member replied "maybe he ate it" as this conversation took place directly behind me I assume they thought my headphones were plugged in."
Pros: "Top notch for a long economy class flight. Great new plane!"
Pros: "Everything on-board was awesome...Great job guys!!!"
Pros: "Very attentive and friendly crew! The plane was nice and clean, nice purple tinted lights. They served us plenty of complementary meals, snacks, mints and drinks. The in flight entertainment was the best I've seen yet: movies, tv, music, games, all recent and easy to use. We will definitely fly Virgin Atlantic again!"
Pros: "Staff were friendly and flight was clean. Lots of movies to watch."
Cons: "The seats gets smaller each year. For a seven hour flight, the seats are very uncomfortable, no space to move. The flight with the hand held remote control TV had poor visual quality. It was hard to watch movies with dark background."
Pros: "Good was decent."
Cons: "This VS25 flight, whatever airplane it was felt old and the v poorly designed "seat back pocket" sat so low and protruded out so much that it pushed against your knees. V uncomfortable."
Food was great except for the snacks. Crew is excellent!
Everything went smoothly and all staff did a fantastic job taking care of passengers and their carry-ons that didn't have enough overhead compartment space to put into, but did well taking care of everything.
Another good flight newer plane therefore better seats. The landing was excellent!
The flight crew was friendly, and I was given an exit row window seat on a basic economy fare. Delta prioritizes SkyMiles cardholders, and that's much appreciated.
Pros: "Amazing Crew, very friendly"
Pros: "new plane good flight"
Cons: "seat space"
Pros: "All of it"
Cons: "Nothing Best flight"
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Crew was excellent, seats are never excellent"

Cons: "Stop charging $2 for headphones lol"
Pros: "The flight landed early. Check-in staff were great."
Cons: "Boarding was a debacle. Flight was oversold. Passenger had trouble boarding when their group was called."
Pros: "There was an available seat next to me"
Cons: "I had to walk from one end of Minneapolis airport to the other end all within 35 mins to catch a connecting flight, tram was not in service. Not fun!!!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. Kat and the other stewards were very friendly."
Cons: "Maybe the option for free upgrade to first class if flight is not full??"
Cons: "Delays were unfortunate, but the gate area at LaGuardia was way too crammed, hardly any seats, and poorly organized"
Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Pros: "Great food and service in first class"

Cons: "Entertainment system was flickering"
Pros: "Enjoyed the ease of check in the spacious gate and the cleanliness of the planes cabin"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Crew were helpful and pleasant"
Cons: "Seating was uncomfortable, cabin was cold and no blankets available, food was just ok, plane had lots of empty seats yet everyone was squeezed into 3 in a row making it uncomfortable, no updates from captain or crew as to where we were in the flight....."
Cons: "The baggage drop attendant was very unhelpful when I asked if she could help me sort out an issue (when I checked in online for the second leg of my trip, i paid for my bag then but they wanted me to pay again for my first flight) and just dismissed me and said she couldn't help, making me pay again for my bag. First time I've ever had an unpleasant experience with Delta."
Pros: "Gate crew in DEN provided free refreshments at the gate during a 2+ hour flight delay."
Cons: "The aircraft used for this flight comes from LGA as part of an out-and-back. Delays can be expected if there is an earlier departure delay in NYC. On 6/30, this aircraft was 2+ hours late while all other airlines (United, Southwest and Frontier) were all on-time."
Pros: "On time, great service, a lot of legroom."
Pros: "Love the TVs provided with recent movies and games"
Cons: "Security was a headache"
Pros: "Left on time all went well in Atlanta"
Cons: "Impossible to figure out what to do in Toronto at Canadian Customs. You move from secure to unsecure then back to secure. It’s a mess and nobody tells you what to do or where to go. Picture process took 4 times. Nobody tells you that you have to transfer your own bags from Delta to West Jet. I even asked in a Toronto and they said no and nobody in Atlanta told me to collect my bags. So bags never made it until the next AM. The West Jet rep was very good and located the bags and they were delivered as promised. You should provide 3 page detailed instructions on how to handle Toronto. I am a seasoned traveler by the way. I’ve never seen anything worse. I could go on and on."
Cons: "Delayed 15 hours because of a mechanical issue, spent the night in Cancun. Customer service and communication throughout was terrible."
Cons: "was a difficult transition from delta to west jet in Toronto and we almost missed the flight"
Cons: "Could not get the boarding pass to print at the self serve kiosk. Had to wait in line for assistance."
Pros: "Delta and Westjet staff are of great help to me."
Cons: "Not applicable"
Pros: "The staff is very friendly. Most pleasant airline I've flown with."
Pros: "On time as scheduled."
Pros: "Left early and arrived early."
Cons: "Smallest bathroom on a plane I've ever seen. Could barely sit down without my knees banging into door or wall."
Cons: "Cancel my flight at 7:50 am to 1:50pm"
Pros: "The flight attendant named Steven went so far beyond the call. He was attentive, he fixed our video system when no one else could and when he learned we were celebrating an anniversary he brought us a present. He was awesome!"
Pros: "Refurbished plane. Lighting was good"
Cons: "No TV screen"
Pros: "Flights were on time and friendly attendants!"
Cons: "Several things. Dropping off luggage. Security. Late flight departure."
Pros: "Overall the actual flight was good..landing was kind of hard but I'm alive so not stressing that"
Cons: "..but the multiple delays are ridiculous, I would not fly Delta if I had a feasible choice."
Cons: "No space in the seats"
Pros: "Had to go through an extra random security check before boarding along with several other passengers. Looong flight, but expected when traveling that distance. Slept and watched movies. Best part: the pilot pointed out that Greenland was visible outside our windows as we flew over."
Cons: "Nothing. It was a smooth flight. Very comfortable."
Cons: "3 hours there before the departure."
Cons: "Please review the message I sent concerns Atlanta hartsfield."
Pros: "the majority of delta flights i've taken over the past few years have had huge issues - either long delays or cancellations. i won't be flying Delta again"
Pros: "I was notified about the delay via text before I left for the airport, which was nice. I would not have checked my email."
Cons: "Delayed for over 2 hours. I have never flown Delta before this flight and it wasn't a great representation. The flight attendants were nice but I was in a seat near the engine and it was making really weird noises. I fly almost every two weeks, so I'm used to engine noises but this was one of the loudest/most rickety sounding flights I have ever been on.. and I have flown Spirit a few times. It just didn't feel safe. Landing scared me a little too as I have landed in O'Hare countless times and have never flown so low to the highway upon entry. It felt like we were only a couple hundred feet above the cars."
Cons: "Not a fan of having "final boarding call" announced to run to the gate, only to sit on the plane at the gate for 30 min because of a scheduled delay at my destination. I know the flight wasn't very full, but that cost me an opportunity to eat dinner. I had to cancel a fast food order because I thought I'd miss my flight!"
Cons: "it took 7hours due to storms"
Pros: "That a delta plane actually had seat back video screens- First delta flight ever that I've been on that did. But every ones screen froze up just over an hour into the flight."
Cons: "Even though the Atlanta to Toronto arrived 'early' I had barely 20 minutes to get to the other plane- I would not have made it with out the amazing staff of weather and the Toronto airport. I use a wheelchair and even zipping through as fast as I could I was 15 minutes late arriving at the gate. I booked this flight thinking I had at least and hour and a bit between flights. Thankfully others on my flight were also late so the Ottawa bound plane did not leave on time"
Food Flight Attendants Aircraft Istanbul airport
Denied boarding even though I met all requirements of Canadian government and had the documentation to prove it.
Pros: "Excellent service for affordable price"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "Fewer fat peasants with too much hand luggage. Seriously, control the hand luggage before people bring it aboard."
Cons: "No one came with drink carts until halfway through the flight. I was very hungry, never offered food. Boarding was late but no communication from staff."
Pros: "the crew was good. The seat were not comfortable"
Cons: "food could have been tastier"
Pros: "Best service, food, seats, space, amenities."
Cons: "Didn't happen. My first leg to Athens was canceled which created a humongous headache since it ended up canceling my return flights. Air Canada had to put me on completely new flights there and back. I think this has taught me to go directly through an airline. Justfly was not helpful. Neither was Turkish airlines."
Pros: "Great food and beverages, excellent attentive service by flight crew. Also liked the complimentary comfort pack and headphones. Will definitely use Turkish airlines again."
Cons: "Entertainment system started out great but technical issues after an hour into our 10hr flight so we we're unable to use it. The flight was full so changing seats was not an option."
Pros: "I liked food, drink, service and entertainment."
Cons: "I disliked seat, a bit."
Cons: "My flight NEVER took place and you have no idea. Shameful! I was hospitalized and I couldn’t flu to Belgrade. I am deeply dissapointed you are not willing to give me my money back. I will NEVER use your service again!"
Pros: "The cabin crew was very kind. The kofte tasted good."
Cons: "They "board" an hour before takeoff but there weren't enough seats at the gate, so for half an hour, no one actually boarded, we just stood or sat on the floor with our carry-on."
Pros: "Entertainment was pleasant. Food was provided which was nice. Drinks were good. Flight staff was pleasant."
Cons: "Touch screens didn't work very well."
Cons: "Of the last 4 times I've flown with Turkish Airlines, I've been asked to move from the seat I booked. If you book and choose a seat in advance of the flight, I should be entitled to keep it."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good food and in flight entertainment"
Pros: "Flight attendants are super friendly and helpful. The food was excellent."
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."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and almost ontime. Professional staff that was active throughout the flight assisting passengers."
Cons: "The access to the gate was through an escalator only, therefore people on wheelchair or families with strollers could not get to the gate easily."
Pros: "Crew is amazing food is good plane is clean and comfortable"
Cons: "Boarding status changed straight from pre boarding to last call. No AC"
Pros: "Walking past the Turkish Airlines desk in Dulles and knowing I would NEVER have to interact with these monsters again."
Cons: "I am an experienced traveler. I've been to 17 countries and have flown over a million miles in both business and coach. My wife encountered a problem in Istanbul that involved an airport transit visa through Canada. I am certain that any other airline we’ve ever flown would’ve assisted us, since it was easily resolved. To Turkish Airlines, this is simply a part of their business model and a chance to make more money. It took about 8 hours of our time at 5 different airport locations to eventually buy new tickets to get back the next day. Our original tickets say: “REISSUE With 200.00 USD penalty. What I didn’t see was the fine print at the bottom: “Turkish Airlines reserves the right to change rules regarding ticket changes and refunds.”. They mean it. As bad as our personal experience was, the real reason we are so appalled is that we were there long enough to see this is the norm for them. In our single day there, we saw at least 100 other travelers going through similar things. The ONLY solution ever offered is to purchase another ticket. We witnessed several people weeping. Many losing control and shouting. Their own personnel were screaming at customers (in a separate office area though, it was all yucks and laughing). These were people of all nationalities. Africans, Asians, Europeans. We were lucky because we had the means to purchase new tickets. Others clearly didn’t. I really don’t know what happened to some of them. One moment was very symbolic of the entire experience. Another vanquished traveler was paying $843 for a new ticket with cash. He handed her $845 but she, of course, had no change. Instead of the $5, he gave her two $1 bills. I had one in my pocket so gave it to her as well. She held my $1 bill up and pointed to the corner which had a very small piece torn off…no ink was missing…and sneered “I can’t accept this. She did this simply because she could. We were powerless. She knew it and reveled in it."
Cons: "Turkish air had great service, food, entertainment and nice comfortable planes. Left on time and arrived on time. Two unrelated issues at Miami airport they didn't have a separate line for the people holding global entry and at the Istanbul airport no info desks to direct passenger to their connecting flight"
Pros: "Worst flight"
Cons: "I was on the phone for 4 hours, went to Turkish office in New York City (they didn't agree to see me), called various sales offices without obtaining a resolution. The only option I have is to lose the full fare of this ticket."
Cons: "Bad cold food. Crowded. Hi"
Pros: "Every thing"

Cons: "Edinburgh boarding gate was changed 3 times and the flight was delayed"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and kind, but the food was superb (not what I've experienced in the past on other flights). Those gift packs of a toothbrush/slippers/ eye mask was also so wonderful! That eye mask and ear plugs saved me during the flight and during my entire trip"
Cons: "While we took off/ landed softly, I felt that the overall noise that the plane had while in flight was loud, almost too loud to fall asleep without headphones."

Pros: "I enjoyed the flight to Istanbul but on the return flight they told me at the exit door of the plane that my stroller for the kids will be in baggage claim. The stroller was. It in baggage claim, the Turkish airline representative could not help or prove de a phone number for me to contact somebody indicating although she has the Turkish airlines uniform she works for swissport. 90 minutes later they said they might send the stroller to my house if found and that I may have to cover the cost as Turkish airlines will not....... terrible service terrible experience and I will never fly with Turkish airlines again"
Cons: "Old plane"
Pros: "Staff on plane were friendly and respectful"
Cons: "Landing was rough , boarding gate is isolated from amenities"
Pros: "The crew was friendly. The entertainment package was good."
Cons: "The food was terrible. Very dry. Warm at best. The temperature of the cabin was too warm. Passengers were fanning themselves to try to cool down. Water should have been offered more frequently. The crew was noisy as they passed through the aisles, making it difficult to sleep."
Pros: "The flight attendants were pleasant and very attentive. Great meals."
Cons: "Had trouble with the seat leaning back on one of glights"
Pros: "I liked the service and the food."
Cons: "It could have been on time flight."

Pros: "Nice crew, comfortable seating, great price"
Pros: "Turkish delight and endless beverage service :)"
Pros: "Good food great passenger service."
Cons: "Disruptive child in seat in front of me"
Pros: "Moved into business class much more leg room"
Pros: "Great Cabin Service, Great Food, timely arrival and departures."
Cons: "Ground Staff Service in Mumbai airport. Could improve a lot. Specially compared to ground staff service in Toronto & Istanbul airports. On all flights legroom was kind of limited in the Coach seats."
The staff at Frankfurt were incredibly rude telling passengers “I don’t have time for you”. I’ve never had a worse experience than with the ground staff Lufthansa in Frankfurt. Avoid at all costs.
Cons: "Considering that we’re in the middle of a pandemic no LH ground staff at Heathrow Airport was leading by example wearing protective equipment such as mask or gloves. Further, I found it inexplicably that almost every seat was taken on this flight. If LH knows that the flight is booked close to capacity I would have expected they do their part and due diligence by swapping to a bigger aircraft to help protect people and their customers, it’s not that they wouldn’t have other aircrafts grounded and ready to go... A reduced beverage service is all you can do, really? LH - very disappointing once again"
Pros: "quality of plane"
Cons: "check in takes 30 minutes since my visa was in old passport"
Pros: "the crew were amazing. The food was good. 20 minutes late in a snowstorm, amazing. Seats were comfortable. I will definitely fly Lufthansa again."
Cons: "Agent changed our flight to Munich and sent as a email with with confirmation on July 10. involuntary. On July 20. I checked Lufthansa app and found that only flight that was shown was flight Toronto-Thunder Bay. After 3 hours of phoning I found that flight from Munich to Toronto wasn’t available for date that was given us in email. Only option was day earlier or later. Left us to take day earlier and we could not changed last flight( Toronto- Thunder Bay). We had to come on Aug 22. and stay in Toronto for 27 hours and than take a flight to Thunder Bay on Aug 23. We lost a day of our vacation, had to stay at hotel. Not good experience at all. We still don’t know whom to complain about that."
Cons: "I missed my connecting flight because my flight was late. I had to get to my destination for a wedding."
Pros: "on time."
Pros: "Flight delayed- missed my connection"
Cons: "5 hour delay"
Pros: "Despite the short flight we were still given food and as always I love airline food. Free alcohol is always a bonus as well! Nice crew and timely take offs and landings. Could bring two hand luggage (backpack and suitcase) which I like even though I didn't have to pay extra!"
Cons: "No negatives."
Cons: "There was not enough room for all the people’s cabin size luggage. They allowed people to get on board with big coats once they’re in the plain they take off the coats and place them up. Those coats take the same space as a small suitcase. I asked the fly attendants for assistance and they didn’t even pretend to care about the situation. I had to put my luggage under the seat for the entire flight, which ended up reducing the very reduced legroom. What this airline is trying to do is; to charge passengers twice for cabin size luggage. This has been my worst experiences with airlines. Lufthansa is definitely an airline to avoid."
Pros: "Very explanatory clear and responsive. There was a short delay they kept us informed clearly and responsibly. Excellent flight and superb performance. Very polite and helpful."
Cons: "Flight from Heathrow to Frankfurt delayed, when we arrived we had no chance of making our connecting flight to Split yet no one told us. No one at the gate which didn’t say final call (or on any of the boards) or anyone calling us over the tannoy at any point. Super rude “flight manager” A. Turini burst out laughing when we told him our situation and when I asked why he said “Well would it make you happier if I cry instead?” So unprofessional."
Pros: "The ground staff in Heathrow was helpful. They happily swapped me onto an earlier flight to Munich after I spotted delays out of Munich, allowing me ample time to connect in Munich airport"
Cons: "Lufthansa's narrowbodies have one of the most uncomfortable seats in the sky. These slimline seats are built with a central beam running vertically along the midline of the seat, making it very uncomfortable with your spine."
Pros: "Food quality was good, and movies had a great selection. Boarding went quickly."
Cons: "We did not request special meals because in the past there has always been an option without cheese. For both legs of the trip, everything had cheese. They tasted great, but left my husband eating only bread. At the first meal the crew just shrugged their shoulders. Second meal they brought him a snack from business class, but it had cream cheese on the sandwich. Drinks were only served during the meals on an 8 hour flight. When crew came back through at the first meal, they only had two bottles of wine in hand offering top offs (no cart, just physically carrying the bottles). We do not drink alcohol. During the second meal I did not even see them offering the top offs. All other airlines have at least come through a couple of times offering water or soda. Announcements were only audible half the time. Customs forms were confusing for people passing through Canada. This might have been explained over the intercom, but again, it was hard to hear."
Pros: "Crew and service was amazing"
Cons: "No entertainment food Horrible"
Pros: "I like everything about Lufthansa in terms of quality and service"
Cons: "Punctuality. I fly lufthansa twice a week and I have yet to fly on time. There are always a delay."
Pros: "Once again, the in-flight crew was excellent. The flight was good, but no entertainment is provided."
Cons: "Another late take off, probably because the incoming connections were late. So it was good that the airline delayed the connecting flights. However, this leg of the trip was so late that I barely made it to third leg of the trip. A huge problem is that each of these international airports require that you go through the security check again. For that reason, connecting legs of trips through these airports should not be scheduled so close together. Heathrow is the worst, with security staff that, at best, don’t care that you have a close connection to make and just ignore your pleas to speed up the process, and at worst, are just plain rude."
Cons: "Cancelled flight and transferring me on turkish airlines again the flight was delayed over three hours.,obviously we have missed our connection flight to Beirut and now waiting in front the hotel desk because the first flight to Beirut is 12:25 pm , I have lost 2 days from my holiday,I'm very tired and upset, I will never use kayak ever again and I will tell all my friends and family to avoid it."
Cons: "The flight was delayed . When we arrived in Frankfurt, there was a quie of 200m . After waiting 10 minutes, they asked us to go to other passport control . We had to walk onother 10 minutes to get there ."
Cons: "Not entertainment at all"
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth, take off delayed by just over an hour but the Crew were exceptional with providing updates and bringing around refreshments whilst we waited."
Cons: "Seats were a little uncomfortable but outside that not much I can fault the airline for."
Cons: "I didn’t like it because when I asked for a big water bottle, they refused to gove it to me while I am sick and suffer dry throat. The space is rather small. If you are 5ft 5 and above person, I honestly would suggest you buy extra legroom for comfortable purposes. Also, there is like 1 restroom on the whole plane and if you sot at the end, you are screw. Lets not forget that they delayed our flights like 4 hours and only gave us 1 voucher for snack. I don’t expect the experience will be fancy but this is a total disappointment!"
Cons: "It took ages to go through the security check, although I have mentioned that I have a flight connection that is due to leave nobody gave a s..t, so I missed my flight. Now I’m waiting at the airport"
Cons: "Cancelled then delayed then had to stay in Frankfurt and was a day late"
Pros: "The environment was very nice. Relaxed and roomy"
Pros: "The crew were very helpful and friendly"
Cons: "The flight was delayed"
Cons: "Very very long walk plus train to baggage reclaim at Munich"
Cons: "Poor food on first leg. Sat by a man who was allowed to have 7 cans of beer. On second leg of journey I was willing to pay for food. The best choice for anyone trying to eat a healthy diet was pot noodles. Air Canada get 2 stars. Return journey on United gets 4stars."
Pros: "It’s nice that Lufthansa still gives food onboard"
Cons: "My Lufthansa flight left with 1hour delay"
Pros: "Smooth process. Regular updates."
Cons: "Late departure."
Cons: "The flight took off 2 hours late they must have known it was going to be that late, yet they lied saying that it was on time, forcing you to come to the airport early, then when you get to the airport they did the - oh its going to be 20 minutes late, no 40, no 1.5 hours late, heck it will be 2 hours late etc. Micro-tight seat pitch - I could barely sit in the seats."
Pros: "The food was great and the crew was respectful and helpful."
Cons: "I couldn't get my tablet to work with the headphones. In order to watch and hear anything, I had to hold my headphones with a certain pressure and frequently spin the headphones in order to hear anything."
Cons: "waited before takeoff, didn't go to right terminal, waited on tarmac for 40 minutes for steps, bags still no on carousel , lost bags....almost missed connection. overall poor experience."
Pros: "Fast-track security, Lufthansa lounge in Heathrow T2 was fabulous, with incredibly attentive staff, flight stewards were extremely polite and also attentive. Great in flight snack and drinks. A real pleasure."
Cons: "The long walk at Frankfurt - but you can't blame the airline for the place the plane docks at."
Pros: "Friendly helpful staff."
Pros: "I arrived at the airport early and the check in staff offered an earlier flight so I wouldn't miss my connection. Crew was courteous and the sandwich on board was quite good"
Cons: "Slim seats very uncomfortable and legroom too little"
Pros: "Very pleasant experience: comfortable airplane and helpful crew, timely departure/arrival, continuing support with information about baggage after arrival."
Pros: "The food and drinks was very good."
Cons: "The flight was late."
Pros: "It was good the checking desk person was polite and done her best to put get me on to British Airways flight to get to my destination on the same day."
Cons: "But we waited tilll 12.30pm still flight took off at 14.00 and arrive in Dubai at 23.50pm instead of 22.30pm person went home who suppose to pick me up. I got to the place I was staying at 01.39am which was very uncomfortable. I will never fly again with Lufthansa Airline it use to like British Airways but definitely they have lost the customer touch."
Pros: "Free refreshments. Funny cabin crew!"
Cons: "There was very confusing and contradictory information on what you can take with you on top of your cabin luggage. e.g. Can you or can you not take a small shoulder bag with you."
Pros: "crew at the gate really excellent"
Cons: "usual plane handling at Frankfurt - bus to terminal, 60 mins is not enough to wait for bus 15 mins drive 10 then go through security and passport control then go from B to A leaving no time to catch a plane Lufthansa scheduling need to experience what they do to passengers"
Pros: "Flights were cancelled that day due to a storm, but Lufthansa were able to fly an empty aircraft from Rome to fly us from London to Frankfurt. Despite the circumstances, Lufthansa were able to still offer catering. Thank you for your cimmitment."
Cons: "Lufthansa in general could invest a little more in the food they serve. Lufthansa's domestic and inter European flights are never a culinary highlight. :-("
Pros: "The flight attendants were very polite and helpful. The seats had those "wings" on either side of the head rest to help keep your head from bobbing back and forth. There were a few good movies to watch that were current, but a lot of old movies that we had zero interest in."
Cons: "The flight was considered a Lufthansa flight and had a Lufthansa flight number, but was operated by Air Canada. We could not check in online ahead of time for some reason. When we got to the airport, we tried to check in at the Lufthansa kiosk and check in line, but they told us we had to go to the Air Canada area. The ticketing/check in process was very confusing. As for the food, the chicken "wrap" was not a wrap, and was a weird Hot-Pocket type meal. After each meal, we ended up having to hold our garbage for quite some time which made manuvering in and out of seats a little tricky. I wish the seat cushion had a little more cushion since we were sitting for so long. Also at some point the overhead lights came on and stayed on, which was annoying if you were trying to nap."
Cons: "The return leg has been nothing but a disaster, in every way possible, specifically my time and financially. At no point in the booking process, when I paid over $800 for the trip, was I told that I needed a specific travel visa (Canadian ETA) to fly back into Toronto for my return flight. Subsequently when I checked in for my flight yesterday morning in Manchester, England, I did not have the required travel documents and had to be rerouted onto a flight into the U.S. at a cost to me of $350. The rerouted flight got me to Washington Dulles airport, where I then had to purchase a second flight to get me home to Cleveland, Ohio, at an additional/extra cost of $450. MY CAR IS PARKED AT TORONTO PEARSON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT!!! I am having to now rent a car and drive there tomorrow (Friday) to collect my car, at another additional cost of $100 plus a 10-hour round trip. Due to the lack of information and communication on your companies behalf, I am down close to a $1,000 and will lose 2-days in work as of the additional days I am having to travel back to Toronto to collect my vehicle. I would appreciate contact from your organization to find the avenue I need to take for compensation of my time and finances. Regards"
Cons: "This airline has little respect for its customers. In the economy/coach cabin, they squeeze the seat distances to such an extent that, when the person in front of you leans their chair back, you cannot get out of your seat at an upright angle. You have to significantly bend your body. To not loose your balance, you have to grab on to the seat in front of you and that disturbs the other passenger. If they're sleeping, they can be woken up by that. Lufthansa does not care much for its passengers. Nor do many other companies, for that matter, but I think Lufthansa is taking things further than most airlines. It is a disgrace. Their brand is not what it once was."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "Getting to LHR early for. 6:30 am flight was no use since they don't have any departing flights between 11pm and 6 am. So we were stuck in the lobby for hours until ticket agents arrived at 4 am. There was one open coffee shop however. Then we waited for security to arrive at about 4:30 am to get through and it was quite a slow shake down. One through there were no restaurants open until 5-5:30 am. The flight itself was fine. Facilities at Frankfurt were minimal with toilets offering only one stall each. While standing in the long queue a lady and her young daughter were rudely ushered out by the male custodian for cleaning, and then it could not be used for another 10-15 minutes."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2.5 hours, for a reason they never made clear after they let the passengers wait in line for 45 minutes to board. Once aboard, the Lufthansa planes were much much less comfortable than the Air Canada plane I took to Frankfurt. There is very little space and the seats are crammed together. The food they served was very bad, especially again in comparison with Air Canada. Once we arrived in Toronto, they made us wait nearly an hour before exiting the aircraft. It would seem that the Toronto airport would have to know we were coming and should have prepared accordingly, but apparently not. We sat, several passengers missed their connecting flights and were angry. I nearly missed my flight, having to run and race through customs (who are in no hurry)."
Pros: "Even on such a short flight I got a sandwich. It was a salmon sandwich which I never had on any other flights. They usually serve cheese or ham or chicken in the Middle East. It was nice to have something different and nutritious."
