Pros: "Food was great , seats were comfortable and crew was very helpful. Entertainment was more than enough."
Cons: "(1) Was about to miss flight because originally my flight booking was from Benazir International Airport Islamabad but t the time of flight I boarded from a different and new airport in Islamabad which had become operational in Islamabad in the last week of April 2018 . My flight was on 10th May 2018 from Islamabad to Doha to Chicago but neither my online booking site ( Kayak ) not Qatar Airways sent any notification that my Boarding was changed from Banzir International Airport to the newer, bigger airport. Consequently , on the day of flight, I went to check in and board from the Bnazir International Airport but upon reaching the airport I was told that the airport was no more in operation. I was surprised to hear that all flights were to be from the newer airport. By the time I rerouted my taxi to the new airport I was already late for my flight but fortunately the flight from Islamabad to Doha, Qatar was delayed and I made it to the boarding time and flew to Doha , Qatar and then to Chicago."

Pros: "Good staff and service"

Pros: "The flight attendants were professional and polite, I requested low-fat meals and they were good, the entertainment was very good, the air temperature was comfortable, most flights I had were on time."
Cons: "The legroom was a problem. Seats are kind of narrow, and then, with the lack of legroom it’s somewhat challenging to shift your legs, especially when the seat in front of you goes back! I felt like the person was almost in my lap. My cup even got crunched. I think my biggest issue, though, lay in how I was treated after paying $127.00 to obtain a day pass for the lounge each way. For my inbound flight my purse was branded with an “economy” class luggage type tag, and I was made to feel as though I was trying to sneak in. I had to show my boarding pass a number of times to employees after asking for the location of the lounge in order to be directed there, and then my credentials were examined as though I was trying to get into Fort Knox. Upon arrival at the desk, I was somewhat tersely informed that I had 6 hours. I went out of my way a bit in order to fly Qatar, which is supposed to be so wonderful, and I was underwhelmed. I’ve had better experiences on Lufthansa and Turkish Airlines."

Pros: "Hospitality and food."
Cons: "Seats are not comfortable."

Pros: "The Crew The Food"
Cons: "The fact that we (my son and I) had to wait at the airport for over 9hours transiting. right after a 9hr 35miins journey."

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Everything qas great"

Pros: "Crew welcomes"
Cons: "Bad takeoff and landing"

Cons: "The flight crew had no control over the passengers on this flight! Kids running around when the seat belt sign on, called fro assistance TWICE and no one came to my seat and I held my trash for a whole hour and not ONE person stopped by to get it from me!"

Cons: "Dirty old plane"

Cons: "The flight departure from Dar was moved up an hour and the congestion at the airport made it close. Also I need a name tag on a checked piece of luggage. When I asked, I was told that none were available. The check in person was not pleasant or helpful. I also had to watch to make sure that the luggage labels were attached to be sure that they would make it to Chicago. Once on the plane there was an unrudy boy sitting in front of us jumping in his seat, never wearing his seat belt kicking the seat, turning on the light beating on the tray table, calling the flight attendant. The adult ignored the child through the flight. It was one of the worse experiences I have had on a plane. I would have to think very hard before I fly Qatar again."

Pros: "The flight was on time. The crew was very accommodating. The food is better than some other airlines. The entertainment provided had a lot of choices I had an 8 1/2 hour layover in Doha. They booked me a short stay in a hotel at no extra charge. This included a car and driver to and from the hotel. It was a nice hotel close to the airport."
Cons: "I was sitting in economy. I booked too late to get any type of upgrade for extra legroom. For Economy it was OK, but cramped and hard to get comfortable on a 13+ hour flight."

Pros: "Soft blankets, seats were okay, crew was wonderful."
Cons: "No wifi even though kayak advertised the flight as having it. Bathrooms were full of trash and quite dirty by the end of the flight."

Cons: "Crew members were not concerned. Service was not proper and on time."

Pros: "Seats are comfortable with sufficient leg space and overall ambience of the cabin."
Cons: "I pre ordered Hindu meal. The meal selection by the airline was same from Karachi-Doha and Doha-Chicago. There was no choice of menu in the meal on such a long flight. Moreover taste of offered food was not satisfactory."

Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "The seats recline far enough tonsleep good Good movie selection Good tv selection although more episodes would be nice"

Cons: "On O-Hare Airport, Qatar Air Line's staff is very rod, I never recommend to anyone. Now if anyone ask from me then i refuse to buy Qatar Aiway ticket then they buy Emirate or other air line tickets"

Pros: "Actually I can't even explain everything is good"

Pros: "The personnel were at the CAI Airport and in the plae were just wonderful. I hope i will have the same experience the second leg if the trip from DOH to DFW"

Pros: "TImings"
Cons: "Price"

Pros: "Comfortable seats, clean plane and airport. Only reason for choosing Qatar airways was cheapest fare."
Cons: "Few crew members attitude and services are highly unprofessional. Everything at Doha airport is way more expansive than neighboring international airports. Food quantity and quality in flights is below average. Security at Doha airport are highly unprofessional and have no respect for passengers and their privacy."

Cons: "No WiFi"

Cons: "The customer service of your company is the worst."

Cons: "No good movies on the flight. The crew hardly interacts. The food sucks and they served sausage to me even though I was a vegetarian and they said they didn't have anything else. The headrest kept falling off ."

Pros: "It was my first time traveling on business class and I had an amazing experience, friendly and helpful crew, they always made sure that I was doing fine and if I needed anything or any help. Healthy options on they food menu and delicious food and beverages. I am looking forward to traveling with Qatar airways again in the future."
Cons: "Would prefer more options on they entertainment menu."

Pros: "Everything was quite nice. The TV screens were working for all the seats! Though I did not give my meal preference earlier, they still accommodated my request. Doha airport is quite nice and modern. Crew was helpful."
Cons: "I wish Quatar had a direct flight between Chicago and Indian cities such as Delhi and Mumbai. I can understand that Doha is their hub, but such a flights would be really good for me as I always want to reduce my layovers. (I noticed that most travelers in my Delhi to Doha and Doha to Chicago flights were Indians, hence my request makes sense.)"

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Flight to Doha was great! Enthused crew and Ey also kept ensuring bathrooms were clean. On way from Doha to Chicago it was disgusting"

Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "The seat in front of me was occupied by an adult who kept bouncing and reclining seats. The crew did not respond to call lights. No Wi-Fi on such a long flight."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "The crew has no control over passengers. Specifically, it is the cabin supervisors responsibility to maintain order on the flight. Everyone before boarding, during boarding and during the flight kept sitting in incorrect seats, no boarding passes checked. Felt like a zoo on the airline. Very disappointed."

Pros: "Leg room. Free booze. Personalized attention"
Cons: "The thought of flying American carriers afterwards"

Pros: "Plane wasn't full, which was nice."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. Starting the pre-boarding process into an area without a restroom was horrible. Not allowing us to bring a water bottle on a 14-hour flight was cruel. Movie selection could be better. Additionally, it seems like the Qatar airport is becoming more like a US airport. Agents were barking orders and the pre-boarding process was slow. It was not a good start to the flight."

Pros: "Please see above"
Cons: "Please see above"

Pros: "Lots of disruptive kids, one of the ethnically chinese (sorry didn't catch her name) was very attentive and supportive of parents trying to keep their kids happy on a twelve hour flight."

Cons: "Not much of space in aircraft"

Cons: "Good was not good"

Cons: "None. Keep up the good work."

Pros: "All great!"

Cons: "Movie selection could have been better, but was ok."

Pros: "Kindness"

Pros: "Excellent, super-friendly crew, excellent meal"

Pros: "Food was better than some other long-haul flights I’ve been on. Plane fairly clean and comfortable."
Cons: "Entertainment options more limited than Delta or Virgin, who I’ve usually flown intercontinental. Boarding in Zurich was a mess. No order to it and they didn’t start boarding until 20 minutes before takeoff. Nearly every intercontinental flight I’ve taken needs closed to 45-60 minutes to do a full board. Sure we made up the time in the air but the process to get on the plane was frustrating."

Pros: "On time departure; easy flight; seating was spacious"
Cons: "The extra charge for a bag!!!!!!!!!!! Would rather fly Southwest or Jet Blue or others that allow a mid size carry on"

Pros: "This was my first time flying on Swiss Air. Beautiful aircraft and a very friendly crew. Food was good and our flight was on time. Lots of options for in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "The boarding process was not ideal. This was our first time in the Zurich airport and we were not aware of the passport check at the gate. There were no signs and several passengers tried to board without the stamp only to be sent to the passport check line. Very frustrating. Also, there was no organization so everyone just rushed forward when boarding was called. They should consider boarding by rows to make it a more orderly process. Finally, there was no leg room at all. I realize airlines are trying to squeeze every passenger in that they can, but this was ridiculous. I'm 5'11" and my knees were pinned against the seat in front of me."

Cons: "No internet. Very slim choices for entertainment."

Cons: "Not enough leg room"

Pros: "Food, service,"

Pros: "I have been flying to Greece and back many years now. I have never seen,such comfort in a plane,such great service,so many snacks and meals,and the crew was coming by every 30-45 minutes for water. We were served Swiss chocolate and also the best ice cream I have had in my life. Best flight and best plane I have flown in my life."

Cons: "I was disappointed that there was no plug-ins to charge electronics."

Pros: "Attentive crew"
Cons: "Long wait for baggage at destination"

Cons: "Bathrooms were pretty soiled - may have just been seen between having been noticed by staff."

Pros: "Great tasting food and lots of movies to choose from"

Pros: "The warm professionalism, quality of service, and attention to detail by the flight crew was outstanding."

Pros: "Food was amazing, boarding was smooth and it went fast, and the crew was very nice."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable and if someone reclined their seat was about an inch away from your face. So if you had anything on your tray it was slammed into you stomach. Also it was so hot on the plane felt sick the entire way. Asked twice to turn down the heat nothing really happened. Missed the individual fans."

Cons: "My bag lost it's tag either in Minneapolis or on the way to Chicago and was re-tagged. It then took 5 days for the bag to arrive at my final destination. Swiss airlines didn't answer any phone calls, didn't respond to email messages sent through the Swiss air website. Had to get an outside agency involved to recover luggage."

Pros: "the service was good"
Cons: "i bougt my ticket on Swiss Airlines. Originally only my frist flight was operated by United. Then something happened and the flight went late and i lost my connections. i ended up flying 24hs late (FROM NY), had to payed a hotel, and my next flight was with United (AGAIN). I really wanted to travel with Swiss, because they have a Ski bag included on the luggage. I ended up paying extra bag in United."

Pros: "I was moved up to comfort instead of main cabin."

Cons: "Seat the family together"

Pros: "The crew and the comfort plus seat"

Cons: "Taxied at ORD for 45 minutes waiting for a gate to vacate."

Cons: "Smooth on time flight"

Pros: "The seats were ok."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 3 hours so I missed my connection in Chicago to Seattle. I’m now stick in Chicago overnight and have to be on a 6 am flight tomorrow. The Delta staff at LaGuaurdia was extremely rude and not helpful at all. Hate Delta......"

Pros: "Flight left on time"
Cons: "Gate crew had trouble identyfing boarding pass on their computer. Difficulty getting on plane"

Pros: "Fast boarding, friendly crew, and comfy seats"
Cons: "It was pretty bumpy and a few times we changed altitude very quickly"

Pros: "I loved the flight attendants and the desk staff everyone was so friendly and made me want to travel delta again."
Cons: "Delta doesn’t offer military spouses free checked bags and I found this out at the airport. It was disheartening, but at least it’s Delta and not the airline that is supposed to represent America."

Pros: "On time/ early arrival!"
Cons: "Most bring on 2 large carry ons slowing down boarding an de- planeing."

Cons: "Plane journey awful. Speaker had a loud buzzing noise all the time so never heard a word bad landing. Rattling plane Very cold."

Cons: "Flight attendant spoke like a robot. Could not understand her."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Small aircraft"

Pros: "Staff, service, options"

Pros: "As usual great staff and awesome entertainment/connectivity"
Cons: "Due to weather & maintenance flight was delayed for IFR release & fuel temperature gauge issues. Staff was very helpful. Would have appreciated a drink voucher. Some unprofessional passengers took their frustrations out on the flight attendants."

Cons: "Over an hour delay before boarding due to supposedly bad weather. Because flight was overbooked they were offering $400 gift card to change to standby on another flight. If you didn’t make that flight (evening), you’d be confirmed on a flight the following morning with one stop in Detroit (we booked a nonstop to Chicago). Uh, no thanks. Then to top it off, we’ve landed and been told that it will be at least an hour before we can deplane due to no availability at the gate (it’s 1145 pm right now). All this plus their new policy of not allowing us to select our seats because we bought the cheapest tickets. Really Delta? You go ahead and cater to the rich and I’ll choose to fly with another airline."

Pros: "Crew friendly"
Cons: "Middle seat with no option for me to move"

Pros: "Movie"
Cons: "Break downs again... At least this time they found another plane."

Pros: "Flight attendants were pleasant."

Pros: "Friendly service, comfortable seat, on time, no issues."

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "The flight was 4 hours delayed"

Pros: "I flew on a basic economy fare (I understand the restrictions) and was seated in Economy Comfort +, so that was appreciated."
Cons: "I could see on the Fly Delta app that I had been placed in seat 10B, but neither the app nor my boarding pass gave me a group to board with, so I assumed that I needed to board with group 3, which necessitated gate-checking my rollerboard bag. Only when I approached the gate to board did I notice on the info screen that I had been "upgraded" to Comfort + and granted boarding with the Sky Priority group. I wish this had been clearer so I could have avoided waiting to board and gate-checking my bag. Minor inconvenience but room for improvement on Delta's part."

Pros: "Friendly staff and comfortable seating"

Pros: "This was not my original transfer flight but everyone was much nicer and helpful than serious and being rude. Love Delta, I did not flight United because I wouldn’t have met my United flight once landing in ATL. The Young African American woman who was at the gate was amazing and so reassuring that I would make my flight to Chicago. Would book Delta, just because of how nice she was to me."

Pros: "i liked that staff and crew were very communicative and pleasant."
Cons: "one crew member didn't show up and caused delayed flight."

Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarded quickly with no fuss."

Pros: "Flt on time, very nice and friendly gate agent and flight attendant"

Cons: "Too tight and seats not comfortable."

Pros: "The Delta people were solicitous, efficient and brilliant the whole way through. We had not a bit of trouble. Our first class seats were comfortable, but with the supplied blanket, pillow and poor air conditioning it was a hot flight. The cabin personnel were wonderful as per usual, and my tasty gin and tonic soothed any discontent. I wish I could fly this way all the time!"
Cons: "The private contractor handling wheelchair assistance was terrible. A Delta employee theorized that they do not pay enough to attract and retain personnel. Our pre-arranged chair was not there, multiple calls by our Delta assistant finally got us a ride to the chair holding area, but after about 45 minutes we gave up and shuffled off to the security area on foot. Thank goodness my hubby is mobile enough for that to have been an option. When we abandoned our wait we were still 4th in line for an attendant to push the chair. If Delta has any responsibility in this it would be in the retention and compensation for the private contractor."

Cons: "The delta studio didn't work with Android 8"

Pros: "We were traveling with a toddler and infant but put in different row because the tickets were purchased separately. Gate staff promptly put us together and even bumped us up to delta comfort. Was a very pleasant trip. Thanks delta!"

Pros: "Plane arrived early"
Cons: "They board the front of the plane first, meaning the aisles get clogged up slowing down the process. Also, staff kept insisting pre boarding that more people needed to check their bags because there wasn't enough overhead bin space, but there were plenty of bins not full by take off."

Pros: "Accident on way to airport, so I showed up to check bags 45 minutes before flight time. They said they couldn't get the bag to the plane..in 45 minutes? So, they put on the next flight... 6 hours later. Said I could fly without the bag... uh, no thanks. They would not look for alternatives without charging me more. Flight attendants were crabby, otherwise everything was fine. I flew British Airways a few months ago. Night and day. Seriously. Delta does not even approach having good service. There was no comparison to British Air--- Delta is not in the same league."

Pros: "Airline stewards were very friendly and pleasant."
Cons: "We booked with Delta, but were put on Air France. Even though we had our boarding passes in hand we had to wait in long, slow line for baggage tags because they would not print from kiosk. There was minimal Air France staff on duty serving thousands of passengers during busy season (July). While the lines grew larger, the staff was reduced from 4 to 2. Another long, slow line for customs, another long slow line for security=Charles De Gaulle airport was awful. We arrived at the airport 4 hours before our departure time and got to our boarding gate with no time to spare."

Cons: "Very uncomfortable, seats did not recline and seats way too close together."

Pros: "Entertainment options weren't bad. Most of the crew was polite other than one flight attendant who seemed ambivalent and unhappy to be there."
Cons: "Three hour+ flight and just one tiny bag of pretzels? And no lemon or lime wedges on the beverage cart? Plus, I have to pay extra for one checked bag. I will only fly Delta if I have to in the future. Subpar airline."

Pros: "Not much really"
Cons: "Boarding, food, seat comfort. Essentially everything"

Pros: "Overall is perfect"

Pros: "Fast and easy."
Cons: "The new Istanbul airport is way too big and confusing. Its pretty but needs people improvement."

Pros: "I did not like anything from this trip. I just learned my lesson not to travel with turkish airlines ever again."
Cons: "flight was canceled from previous flight so we had to overnight in istambul and the whole situation was handled very poorly nobody took the time to explain to me what to do and mind this I was traveling with three year old and I found myself crying at midnight at the airport not knowing what to do."

Cons: "Boarding took longer time Than it should."

Cons: "Change the mousse flavor, please. The hummus was terrible."

Cons: "Food is not great and the flight was delayed by an hour"

Cons: "I like everything. I know most countries dont like turks. But turkish are best nationality. With big hearts."

Cons: "Turkish Airline lost one of my checked in bag! Never found it!"

Pros: "Organized overall"
Cons: "Cabin way too cold"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "was unable to upgrade tickets in advance off of web site. Others in Greece and Italy tried to assist as well and found same and when calling 800 numbers the calls were not going thru or hold time was overly extreme. Was told at Athens check in to upgrade in Instanbul and to go to transfer desk to get upgrade. An upgrade of $1200.00 Euro's is extreme Being packed like sardines for a 10 plus hour flight is not good. It is also unhealthy. Turkish Airlines should consider something other then the 777 for any international flying."

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "i liked everything"

Pros: "Same."
Cons: "Same"

Cons: "The process to get into the plane at Istambul was horrendous. It took forever to process the passengers."

Cons: "This was the worst I have ever experienced. My flight arrived into Istanbul and 45 minutes until the departure I was told it had already left. I later found out something very similar had happened to a man from London, a couple from Boston, three people from Ghana, and many more that were taken advantage of in an attempt to sell tickets for them to go home. Never in my life have I seen such corruption first hand in a business that claims to be professional. I travel with them roughly twice a year so I'm not really a huge spender when it comes to their service, however I have suggested many to use their airlines. Never again will I make this mistake, and never again will I fly with them. I think I would rather spend the few extra hundred dollars than to have to experience that again. Turkish airlines you have lost my service and my respect."

Pros: "No complaints about the plane, staff etc and its probably no worse than any other airline"
Cons: "Long overnight flight in Economy Class, little legroom. As I am larger than average and find it hard to sleep on flights, the cramped conditions were extremely uncomfortable"

Pros: "The meals and in flight entertainment"
Cons: "The seating I needed more leg room"

Pros: "I really enjoyed the food and the entertainment. this was the best international flight I have taken so far."
Cons: "check in time was to long."

Pros: "The security checks to board the plane were extensive and there was potential for the situation to be very stressful, but the personnel handled themselves very well under the pressure and stayed calm."

Cons: "Security lines for US departure way too long. Turkish Airline needs more people to speed up process."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "The issue of excess baggage. Would appreciate to buy on line before my flight so that I know how much to carry and also that I am covered before leaving home. Payment at the airport may be too costly as well as unreasonable. It's like a penalty for having excess luggage. This is the reason I prefer flying with EMIRATES because they afford me to but pay fir excess luggage before my departure. Planning ahead is key"

Pros: "The flight was great. It was before the flight that was highly stressful"
Cons: "Boarding procedures in Istanbul were terrible. No communication. Lots of anxiety and stress. Running through airports."

Cons: "On our way back to US, we were kept in a small area with no air conditioner for one hour."

Pros: "bad !!!"
Cons: "All !!"

Pros: "Did a very good job of efficiently, securely dealing with US requirement of no laptops, no tablets allowed on flights from Middle East."

Pros: "The up to date and *free movie options"

Pros: "Movies"

Pros: "Excellent!"

Pros: "I would love to fly with them again"

Cons: "I could not figure out how to get a vegetarian meal."

Pros: "as above"
Cons: "as above"

Cons: "I stayed in Istanbul Airport for 16 hours with no hotel or even a meal."

Pros: "I didnt receive my baggage."

Pros: "\"
Cons: "The amount of security we had to deal with. I was searched 3 times and they decided to confiscate my laptop since the battery charger was dead."

Pros: "Turkish Air has some of the best flight attendants in the business. The food is essentially gourmet (hot wrap, in this case), and the pilots are highly skilled."
Cons: "I tend to need the climate control to be on the cooler side, and 777's seem to run hot. Since there are no air vents, the warmth can be overwhelming. Also, the comments about leg-room, ... correct. I'm 6' 3" and 'uncomfortable' sums it up pretty well. For 10½ hours, being crammed into that small a space can be quite daunting."

Cons: "Very friendly staff if istanbul airport was organized this airline is better than emirates"

Pros: "I liked the friendly staff and regular drink, hot wash cloth, and food."
Cons: "Bringing a hot wash cloth around just before landing after flying all night would be refreshing. I think it would give people the next best thing to a hot shower. I should have picked an isle seat. I was on a 10 plus hour flight and felt trapped and my isle guy had his headphones in or slept all but one small break in that 11 hours. I felt abit claustrophobic."

Pros: "Lending was excellent"

Cons: "2 hour departure delay."

Cons: "I didn't received my luggage same day Ithat was not find it and I had to wait 4 days to get it"

Pros: "The flights attending."
Cons: "The waiting time for next flight."

Cons: "My seat was terribly uncomfortable. The airplane temprature was really low that it made me so sick. I had a missing luggage where i did not hear any updates from Turkish Airlines for 5 days. I ALWAYS fly Turkish Airline internationally when going to Turkey. But after my last experience, i am not so sure"

Pros: "Everything operated fairly smoothly on the flight. Service was very good."
Cons: "Boarding was haphazard, no use of group numbers. They ran out of one selection for dinner less than halfway through the plane. My entertainment screen froze about 2 hours into the 9 hour flight and they couldn't/didn't reset it though I asked several times, so I read a book instead. I will say this was the exception flight out of the other 3 I have had with Turkish. On those, I encountered no issues."

Pros: "Plane was clean. Good food, nice details. Nice variety of entertainment."
Cons: "Entertainment system stopped working with about 2.5 hours left in flight."

Pros: "Best long distance airline I have flown to date."

Pros: "Loved the food!"
Cons: "Although I had a book and good seat-mate, the movie screens stopped working after a few minutes for about 80% of us on the flight. That made for a very long 11 hr flight. There was no apology made to those of us with broken screens. and for boarding, the Airport screens when from no gate to "GO TO GATE" and we all rushed there, some of us 2 hrs early. They put us through security where we were stuck with no available restrooms for nearly 2 hrs before our flight. There was no reason for the rush, and there really should have been bathrooms for us."

Pros: "New planes, very modern fit-out, industry leading entertainment system. Excellent flight all round."

Pros: "Flight on time and pretty smooth. Plane was nice."
Cons: "Same documents were checked several times. Kids screaming most of flight. I know that is not crews fault. Could not eat food due to food allergies. Very hungry and tired at end of flight. Legs swelled up very large. Good idea to remind passengers to move feet around every hour. But...overall the flight was nice. Good plane. Good movies. Would fly Your airline again. Will just bring my own food and move around more."

Pros: "Everything was really great!"

Pros: "Security checks in a narrow area serving several flights to the USA took way too long time to board"

Cons: "Very cramped seating, the 5 hour layover in Frankfort was rough, When we landed after 9 hours I wanted to use the restroom and the stewardess said we had to exit the plane immediately"

Pros: "They hand out wine like it's candy"
Cons: "Also, they hand out wine like it's candy - be careful!"

Pros: "Got to the destination"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Love Lufthansa"

Pros: "The help from the checking agent after we found out Lufthansa canceled my daughter and mine flys coming back home without any explanation and notification"

Cons: "Having more than one person at the curtesy desk when half the plain’s luggage was left in Germaine"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Perfect"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Meals."

Cons: "Perfect"

Cons: "Space is limited even for a small built person. Too crowded considering long the travel time"

Cons: "The plane is still on the run way waiting for a gate & I’ll miss my shuttle bus to my next stop. Darn..."

Pros: "n"
Cons: "n"

Pros: "The time between flights was good and the trip was very nice."
Cons: "Both trips were nice"

Pros: "??"
Cons: "??"

Pros: "The on-board staff were excellent. Please congratulate Lufthansa on another job well done! Very good at listening and very attentive to passenger needs and passenger comfort. Bravo!"

Cons: "My seat was assigned to someone else and I paid for an upgrade but got a center seat with less legroom than what I paid for"

Cons: "We waited for an hour at the gate for other passengers, to where we missed our connection in Chicago and did not get back to Austin, TX for another 24 hours."

Cons: "The waiting time"

Cons: "A lot to improve on the seat size for comfort."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Again miserable muslim meal with only vegetables! Not enough room in the cabin for the personal bags that I had to put it under my feet for the whole trip ( +10 hrs ) having my legs stuck between the seat and the bags ."

Cons: "My luggage was not given to me at the same day of my arrival to Chicago and I am still waiting for it."

Pros: "Excellent"
Cons: "No complaints"

Cons: "An hour + delayed departure and arrival."

Cons: "No problems"

Pros: "I like the friendliness of Lufthansa staff - on the plane and off the plane. This is definitely one of your strongest points Lufthansa!"

Pros: "Perfect"

Pros: "Plenty of legroom in main cabin"
Cons: "Video selection unreliable"

Pros: "Everything seemed to run smoothly."
Cons: "No issues this leg"

Pros: "The movie options where not great."
Cons: "Movie options."

Cons: "Going through Chicago airport"

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "The checkin was very helpful although also frstrated because they could not print the boarding pass."
Cons: "Had to wait till I got to the counter to get my boarding pass. They had to ov erride a certain part in order to print. As a result of this I was unable to sit with my party."

Pros: "Last year I flew Air France. Lufthansa is far superior!"

Cons: "No boarding advantages as a star alliance silver member."

Cons: "Didn't happen. Missed it and got re routed thru United."

Cons: "Broken chair would not stay reclined. TV screens need to be updated. The touch feature only works half the time. You have to keep tapping it. Temperature on the plane goes from freezing to hot. Very uncomfortable."

Cons: "A disaster but was able to arrive 5 hours later to my destination. Better than a day late."

Pros: "The stewardess who served drinks and snacks were kind, fast, and efficient."
Cons: "The woman at the United Airline check in counter before we boarded the plane was rudely yelling at everybody to board the plane. She was very unpleasant, not welcoming, no smile, just plane yelling."
