Cons: "I truly enjoy this airline! No complaints"

Cons: "More refreshments"

Cons: "I don't understand how this company has a high rating in service. We missed our connection because the plane was delayed and they treated us poorly. How can you have a complimentary lounge for people missing their flight but not allow people in. I guess because we were only economy. When asked could we pay for an upgrade to business class, the attendant responded with "oh, its expensive" I didn't ask how much, I asked if we could. I never felt so insulted. The food was terrible. By the time they got to us, our food was cold and they ran out of the menu item we wanted. I have no intention of flying Qatar again. I will stick with Emirates"

Pros: "Great experience"
Cons: "Excellent"

Pros: "Yes"

Pros: "Very comfortable plane and entertainment offered is excellent"
Cons: "Headphones way too big (even when made as small as possible) 2 of 3 checked bags sustained damage to the structure of the bags! Passenger control was poor. Guy behind us was watching videos on his phone throughout flight without headphones-broadcasting to the rest of the seats around him."

Pros: "the new seating in Business Class is very comfortable and so similar, although slightly less spacious, than First on some carriers. Crew is top class. Doha is a great airport too. I prefer it to Dubai."

On the flight, snacks and drinks were bright by every hour or so and the meals were plenty of food and tasted good. I was given a bag with eye cover, earplugs, socks, face wipes and ear phones. Entertainment was good as well. Qatar is an amazing airline. Wish we had something like this in the States!"

Pros: "everything went smoothly, no delays, boarding was easy and quick"

Pros: "The Crew The food"
Cons: "Transiting. Made to stay in the airport for over 8hours after a 9hr 35mins flight. I was not happy about it. I hope that, on the return journey, when transiting time would be over 10hours, i would be lodged in a hotel. Thank you."

Pros: "Flawless boarding, service, food."
Cons: "We arrived 2 hours and 40 minutes late due to technical issues with the aeroplane. We were kept informed and we arrived safely, so this is a nibir complaint."

Cons: "Attention to special needs"

Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I liked everything about the flight."

Cons: ",also I had to wait for longer time again due to less people for wheel chair assist.."

Pros: "Service, friendliness of that staff"
Cons: "Other passengers used my carry-on baggage space and my carry on was placed far from me."

Pros: "The crew on the flight was excellent. They'll bring you pretty much anything reasonable you ask for. In flight entertainment options were many. I don't eat a lot of airline food, but the meals exceeded my expectations."
Cons: "I am quite tall (6'5"/1.92m), the in flight comfort was brutal. It'll take my knees a week or two to forget the constant jamming from the seat in front of me. Otherwise, on boarding was well organized, but very slow. Sound quality on provided headphones was very poor."

Pros: "The timing was spot on and I had no major issues. The staff was great. They showed that they truly value customer service and were patient"
Cons: "The song selections were somewhat old and should be looked at."

Pros: "Nice aircraft."
Cons: "Gate security at Doha was too disorganized - could have let passengers know put everything in bag instead of at last minute having to put wallet, passport, etc in open bin and be afraid it would get stolen or misplaced."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Entertainment. Not all films have subtitle"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Staff were rude, careless. I do think I have paid less to purchase of ticket - why will I not get good service. If you want to treat people differently for their skin color and country of origin then charge less price for the ticket !!"

Pros: "The plane was neat, clean and the services was world class. I was made to feel at home with service always at my finger tips."
Cons: "Nothing to report."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Seats, unfriendly crew members, worst food "Hindu meal""

Cons: "Overall experience turns exceptional great when crew is friendly, understandable & helpful. My overall experience on this flight from CAI-DXB on Emirates was great because of the wonderful crew, on top was their Supervisor/ Adel A.Hamid El-Hareth. On the contrary my decision after an experience with Emirates on board from DXB-LAX, was never to repeat it due to Crew Supervisor, she was British, she was there on board I guess to teach everybody disciplines with a tone !! Someone exceptional to meet once in life but it may bring you to a decision along with other factors not to fly again with Emirates to LAX. Thanks for your professional follow up Regards, Dr. Karim Ali"

Pros: "Emirates staff are very professional"
Cons: "To remove menu on paper. Rather Emirates should display the menu on the screen like other airlines who care about the environment"

Pros: "I liked the way of grouping the boarding , and the "ICE" facility had a great options, crew was so helpful."
Cons: "It was far away from the gate to the place of passport clearance and baggage reclamation area, we walked a lot."

Pros: "It was ok flight. Normal economy class flight. Nothing much to talk about"
Cons: "Emirates Airlines need to really pay attention to the kind of people they hire. A lot of times you will run into nice people in their counters and desks, until you run into a massive a$$hole. In this airline it is very common to find quite a few individuals that need re-training and re-education on how to deal with customers."

Pros: "The Seat is good."
Cons: "The check in counter welcoming should be better in Barcelona"

Pros: "Lamb and chicken were good but kids didn't like the kids meals.."
Cons: "2 of the female crew members had attitude problems when asked simple questions by passengers. One was an Urdu speaking flight attendant and the other was a blonde woman. Regret I didn't get their names. Please work with them on being nicer with passengers."

Pros: "all is good"
Cons: "n/a"

Pros: "Good seats. Good space good crew."

Cons: "gate was poorly labeled. Screens and boarding card said "E11" but there were 3 gates "E11A" "E11B" and "E11C" and most passengers wasted time trying to find the right one (including "E11C" which was the first gate # passengers saw, and required going up stairs to a different floor to determine it was the wrong gate). Terrible signage, awful experience. Someone should be fired."

Cons: "Almost all the flights I take out of Cairo leave late, not sure if this an airport issue or what but it is very stressful to have boarding go so slowly and to have the plane take off over an hour late. This has now become "the norm". Please make better efforts to leave ON TIME!"

Cons: "Cairo airport: Personnel have no manners. Rude, disdainful security staff who bark at passenges as if everyone is a criminal. Must be related to the Egyptian mindset. Dubai airport: Endless taxiing from aircraft to terminals, endless shuttle rides between terminals. You feel like a rat scuttling through underground tunnels and dismal byways through a wateland of darkness to be spat out at ugly, uninviting entrances somewhere in the bowels of Dubai International. No signs, no knowledgeable personnel to explain anything to you. No attempt at making travelers feel comfortable, no attempt at making the surroundings look pleasant. Must be the culture. The flight itself has wonderful staff, but the airport makes me not want to fly Emirates again!"

Pros: "Professional staff"
Cons: "Cramped hot flight. Paid white a bit more than other carriers, as I was under the impression that seating would be comfortable, the food great, and beverage service would be frequent"

Pros: "Crew and entertainment"
Cons: "Food and legroom"

Pros: "the food is excellent"

Pros: "My first flight with Emirates. Excellent all round"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Inflight entertainment was good but that doesn’t make up for lack of equal treatment of all passengers"
Cons: "They are racist!!!!! Segregation and all!!!!! For my more than 12 hours layover I had to pay for my own hotel!!! Yet other travelers were given free hotel vouchers. As a matter of fact I was kept waiting for nearly half an hour in the middle of the night even though I had been waiting for service ahead of them."

Pros: "The seats with enough legs room"
Cons: "It was so difficult to find the restrooms. There were few of them in a big airport that made a long line and difficult for kids"

Cons: "The flight got cancelled, and it was impossible to reach your customer service. It was the first time to use and last time."

Pros: "Excellent trip"

Pros: "Decent leg room in economy; good entertainment system & food/drink"
Cons: "I was expecting to pay for only 10 kg excess baggage according to my own scale but was charged for 15 kg and the check-in staff was rude and unwilling to listen; in-flight staff were not polite, pushing past passengers without any word; such a disappointment as I expected much higher standard of service and courtesy. Nothing beats Singapore Airlines."

Cons: "Over charged for bags paid $326.00 for one extra bag I call Airline in Dubai they said you have been over charged"

Pros: "Staff is very good. Always smile on face."

Cons: "The screen not working I feel very bored"

Cons: "Not able to select seats during online checkin free of cost."

Cons: "crew"

Pros: "Staff on board was very nice and attentive. Much nicer than the crew on my outbound flight"

Pros: "Consistent service"
Cons: "Toilets not very clean towards the end of the flight"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Food and crew were great"

Pros: "I enjoyed the wide selection of movies and tv series. I think the food is the best out of all the airlines and I enjoy flying with Emirates."
Cons: "When I boarded my flight, a man and his family took my seat and forced me to sit in the middle of two very large men and made my 7 hour flight very uncomfortable. I purposely chose that seat for leg room and even though business class was empty, they could not provide me with a different seat."

Cons: "I had a 14 hours layover in Dubai. I had called Emirates before booking this flight and they said they would issue a hotel and meals vouchers. Due to a mistake by an Emirates agents who was processing the visa application in Dubai, it was denied and an immigration head officer came and appologized to me and spoke to her. Emirates did not compensate me at all. They could have granted Emirates lounge access, meals, or simply book me a room at the airport hotel. I ended up sleeping for 14 hours on a chair due to their employee's fault"

Pros: "I like the flight route"
Cons: "This is my fourth time booking Emirates for my route through kayak. The route is longer but I choose it for on-board Internet for work emails. Generally, they have on-board WiFi Internet, however for my return route of 21 hours both flights had no wifi which was disappointing. This is unprofessional because if you are planning on having WiFi to respond to work emails and it is not available once you are already in the air there is nothing you could do but get stuck. Never does this happen with Lufthansa, Turkish, Etihad. Disappointing."

Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Flighet delay"

Cons: "All seats are occupied airplane is completely full making it difficult for crew to serve passengers and time consuming to do regular activities."

Cons: "Flight was really hot ; i was almost suffocating. They kept the AC closed for an hour till the take off !! Wayer surved was hot ! Disappointing experience unfortunatly!!"

Pros: "I liked the complimentary alcohol, but you had to get up and ask for additional beer /wine/etc...."
Cons: "They need to be better at cleaning up... I had to clear trash from others frequently"

Pros: "Good, friendly service. Also was given a meal for a 1.5 hr flight!"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Very far gate, long bus ride to reach plane"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "we were delayed by 3 hours and missed our next flight to seattle, emirates did nothing to help us catch our next flight, even though it sat on the tarmac for 30 minutes while we were denied entry to the gate."

Cons: "Ran out of vegetarian meals by the time they got to my seat. So I had to make do with some biscuits and bread"

Pros: "Generally good standard, nothing to sit about but there was a selection of recent and older films and TV, OK food and fairly comfortable seats."
Cons: "While the food was ok, there were some odd omissions from the vegetarian meals that sometimes made them seem smaller or worse value compared to the non-veggie options. Still better than I've had on some other airlines though."

Pros: "Communication on phone prior to flight regarding baggage allowance & other matters was handled promptly & efficiently by friendly & knowledgeable phone agents. Ground crews in airports & at gates most friendly & efficient"

Pros: "As commented above."
Cons: "As commented above."

Pros: "Available movies are great! Food is really good, but if your seat is in the end of the plaine, your choises of food will be smaller (meat plates ends before you get the opportunity to ask for it)."
Cons: "Emirates is located in a crowded terminal in Cairo and from the airport entrance to the gate can take you more than one hour. Also, some people in this airport don't respect the queue, so you have to pay attention on your place in the line and sometimes, 'fight' for it. My flight had lots of kids, and even asking the parents to control their kids, it didn't happened. During part of my flight I had a child kicking the back of my seat!"

Pros: "I. Had bulk head seat 45g, the seat was stuck and could not recline ,the tv was stuck too so could not watch anything was boating and it was not comfortable at all"

Pros: "Huge amount of leg room in economy. Great in flight entertainment. Accommodative flight attendants and enough space in the back of the double decker Airbus to stretch out throughout the flight A++"
Cons: "Boarding was a little sloppy and I think they over fed me!"

Pros: "Inspite of the system problems at the check in cou ters in lusaka the team still served with a smile and the flight left in time At Dubai airport we were assisted to get to the gate as we found that they had started boarding on the connecting flight."

Pros: "Amenities and food, customer service."

Pros: "The crew was amazing"

Cons: "To be on time"

Pros: "Great crew. Good food. On time."

Pros: "Seat was okay, and the crew were good. Boarding was quick probably because not many passengers on flight."

Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 1/2 hours. Better accommodations and notice would have been appreciated."

Pros: "Predictably late."
Cons: "Be on time."

Pros: "Having internet access on an overseas flight was a new treat for me. Delta appears to be bucking the trend of making flying miserable. I liked the waiting area at JFK with charging stations for every seat."

Pros: "Comfortable seats"

Cons: "In flight movies would be nice . Tight seats for 6.3 huy"

Pros: "Food and drinks were great"
Cons: "Would have liked being able to select a window seat."

Pros: "Crew stepped up when we were delayed. In Flight entertainment was nice to help pass the time."
Cons: "More honesty from the pilots/airline. Got on the plane, taxied to take off, then informed that we had to go back to the gate. At the gate, they wouldn't let anyone off and then we were told that there was a minor maintenance issue that would take 15 minutes to fix. It took 4 hours. Poor job by Delta"

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Stuck at landing. For over 20+ minutes"

Cons: "CheezIts were too salty. We had to sit on NO tarmac for over 10 minutes because a plane was stuck at our gate...several other gates empty - what's up?"

Cons: "Snacks"

Pros: "Everything A-Z"
Cons: "They sell the headsets for $2!!!!!!"

Pros: "The crew was attentive."
Cons: "Games on the tv were okay. Tetris would be a nice addition."

Pros: "Flight was early into New Orleans"
Cons: "Flight had a lot of turbulence"

Pros: "The short duration of the flight and punctual arrival. Better seating with more leg space in Airbus than in the horrible Boeing 467- 400."
Cons: "No headsets distributed so I couldn't listen to film program. Crew rather impersonal. I'm dreaming of an airline that uses functioni g loudspeakers during boarding. Nobody understands acoustically which zone is being boarded ( not only a Delta issue)."

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Wi-Fi not working or hard to get to work. Flight was delayed by an hour and service was very rushed."

Pros: "The crew! You have great people working for you on these routes."
Cons: "This was an easy flight. Nothing bad."

Pros: "Being able to watch videos."
Cons: "Flew with 5 family members. None of us were seated together. And we have 3 young teen girls. Flight overbooked."

Pros: "Good service and on time."

Pros: "Nice plane. Efficient crew"
Cons: "Not their fault but they were delayed 4 hours. At least they texted updates fairly frequently but I can’t give a 5-Star review because of the huge delay"

Pros: "My seat was randomly the exit row, so more leg room and pilots made great time"
Cons: "Left 20 minutes late because of travel agents"

Pros: "Everyone was very friendly and concerned about us making our connections"
Cons: "The fact that they didn’t make sure all the paperwork was correct and our delay to NO was due to that issue"

Pros: "Great staff, plenty of room, efficient snack and drink delivery, effluent boarding"

Pros: "Easy transition through customs."

Pros: "Crew was kind and helpful. Snacks were great!"

Pros: "Great flight . Even got here early"

Pros: "Flight was fine."
Cons: "My one complaint is the bathroom layout of the A320. Two tiny closet bathrooms in the back for all of coach and a much larger one much larger one first class (which is like 5 rows with a mesh curtain for separation). The coach bathrooms are so small a normal person can barely get in and turn around to close the door. I question whether a larger person would be able to actually use them. I also saw the flight attendant actively turn away coach passengers trying to use the first class bathroom when it was open (not standing in the aisle or anything annoying like that). That's ridiculous to have 2 tiny bathrooms for all of coach and also to make people walk all the way to the back of the plane when you are seated much closer to the first class bathroom."

Pros: "The outbound crew was terrific. The flight itself was fine. We even arrived early."
Cons: "Upon deplaning in Cancun, ALL passengers are put on a bus and driven far away from the terminals to an arrivals area. Those of us with connecting flights are royally f*cked at that point, especially if your connection is short, as mine was. The so-called shuttle to the departure terminals, which are entire kilometers away, was to arrive in like half an hour. HALF AN HOUR. Who has this time to spare?? The alternative to the shuttle is paying a taxi that charges a hefty fare--and God help you if you don't have cash. The departures terminal was swamped and only thru begging assistance and line cuts did I make my connection...and then only by the skin of my teeth. It was a complete nightmare."

Pros: "Very comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing, besides the flight was slightly delayed but not by long"

Pros: "Really helpful staff, clean plane, attentive and easy boardiing"
Cons: "The check in was a bit confusing at the airport."

Cons: "Paid first class. Got served after people in coach."

Pros: "New aircraft A320"
Cons: "Late,"

Cons: "1 hour flight delay"

Cons: "Flight was delayed nearly 2 hours without any compensation to the passengers. I frequently fly jet blue and whenever they are that delayed not weather related the staff frequently gives the passengers a complimentary cocktail. Also your boarding process makes little sepnse to me why board from the front of the plane more sensible to board back to front"

Pros: "The gate person was very accommodating"
Cons: "It was over 2hrs late due to mechanical problems. Seems to be the norm."

Cons: "There delay"

Pros: "It wasn’t bad or good."

Cons: "Long delay due to maintenance of oxygen masks issue. Why hadn't this been taken care of with preventive maintenance?"

Pros: "The staff are fun and friendly. One of the hostesses stepped into the vacant seat where I was sitting and stepped back further when people where pushing by. We were almost cheek to cheek. The closest I've come to a cute bum in years."
Cons: "The gratis food offering isn't healthy - those bread pretzels, versus the almond & tomato juice I had on the next flight, with ...can't remember the name."

Cons: "Seating was tight"

Pros: "They ran out of food on the plane"

Pros: "Personnel and crew handled the problem in a professional manner doing everything in their power to make the best of a bad situation. Another plane was provided within a reasonable time frame."
Cons: "Four hour delay. Boarded and then being told after 40 minutes that the problem was not fixable."

Cons: "No space."

Cons: "Arrived at my destination almost two hours after the initial arrival time"

Cons: "This is my first flight with Turkish Airlines. It is much better than every Europe Airline company. Until the Covid19 pandemic is over I will not fly to Europe with any European company. Turkish Airline are that good. On top of that you get to transport two big bags of luggage for free."

Pros: "Entertainment was great!"
Cons: "The check-in was stressful and congested."

Pros: "Very professional and polite crew"

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

Pros: "Everything. From boarding to taking off until the smoothest landing."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Care from the crew and consideration"

Pros: "flight departed Jhb on time and arrived in Istanbul a few mins earlier than scheduled"
Cons: "1.cabin temperature varied from cold to very warm 2.I asked the cabin crew for a blanket but they forgot about it 3.I ordered a whisky with ice - was given half a tot with 2 small blocks of ice 4.only one person was serving drinks and food on my aisle so it was very slow service (other aisle had 2 crew serving)"

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 inflight entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding and check in makes me want to never fly with Turkish air again. Worst customer service ever!!!"

Cons: "My entertainment set didn't work"

Pros: "I'm 6 ft 2. Legspace was adequate, and no silly boxes under the seats like other airlines that obstruct your feet. Great entertainment systems - modern, good selection. Food and staff excellent."
Cons: "Their online checkin systems could operate a bit more smoothly. At one point, I had to go in in person, because the online checkin site had an already past flight from their codeshare partner SAS showing up as the next flight, and I couldn't perform online checkin as a result."

Cons: "Turkish Canelled my flight"

Pros: "Food was good , enertainment and comfort was fine"
Cons: "The hostess was not friendly at all. Seemed to be inconvenienced by every request Also requested a veggie meal but was not avaible"

Cons: "We had asked for wheel chair. At Istanbul we were made to wait for almost two hours. Our boarding passes were collected by your staff, when I raised my voice, were given one wheel chair and I had to run along with the staff or we could have missed the flight. I wanted to have some grub at airport but there was no time."

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"

Cons: "See above"

Cons: "Boarding problems"

Pros: "The flight was quite comfortable. We lucked out with only a partially filled flight leaving extra space to sleep. Service was friendly and the food was excellent! I was fed twice on my 9hour flight and once on my 4hour flight. Great in flight entertainment."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "Friendly airline and super organized and efficient from start to finish. By far the best airline our group has flown with!"

Pros: "Exxcellent food."

Pros: "Great"

Pros: "Food is decent. Entertainment is above par."
Cons: "This was 2nd out of three Turkish flights I've taken that was delayed causing me to run to catch my connection. Also, there was some sort of dilemma or drama with the in flight staff. It took an hour at least from when the drink cart came out until I was actually served a glass of water. The staff kept discussing something at the cart, then leaving the cart, then returning for another discussion, etc..."

Pros: "The food was delicious."
Cons: "The wait times were ridiculous and always off schedule. From the beginning of the trio to the end of the trio there was consitency in going off schedule and being forced to stand in lines for hours. I would not fly Turkish again."

Pros: "Food, crew, comfort, not a full flight, enough room for everyone"
Cons: "Plane was one of the old ones but I understand why it was used on small hauls, but it could definitely be upgraded to provide the top of the line service and luxury Turkish is known for and stands for."

Pros: "Food and Crew"
Cons: "The fact that the boarding was by bus and not through a sleeve detracts from the process."

Pros: "Great food, comfortable seats, Caring staff, Good TV quality and programs."

Pros: "Safety and comfort. The people were so nice."
Cons: "What I didn't like was when Turkish Airlines told us that in order to get free hotel and free transportation because our layover was 13+ hours we must buy Turkish entry visas which costs us $200.00. The visas should've been free because we were on transit."

Pros: "good movie selections"
Cons: "We were pushed to stand-by at the check-in and were told that seat number would be available at the gate. However, this never happened. At the gate, we (30+ people) were told that there are no more seats available on the plane and we have to go to their customer service for another flight. There are no Turkish Airline staff at the gate to explain why this would happen and provide any assistance. We spend the next 2 hours trying to get boarding pass for the next day's flight and the hotel. Again, no apologies nor explanation were given. Thank you Turkish Airline for wasting 1 day of my life. I will try to avoid this airline in the future."

Cons: "the kosher food was poor"

Pros: "Food is excellent, staff great."
Cons: "Not nearly enough leg room for an international flight!!"

Cons: "I like it everything. Turkish airline was great flight with great food and great service during the flight , great way to flight , thumbs up Turkish airline !!!"

Pros: "Entertainment system is excellent, food is solid and plentiful."
Cons: "I've flown Turkish a few times before, and they're generally pretty good for the price. This trip was different. Despite Turkish Airlines policies outlined in their "Customer Rights," I received no notification that the flight was delayed 3 hours, and there was no notification at the JoBurg airport until you go to the counter to check in. JoBurg staff - which are Menzies third-party contractors, not Turkish staff - were disorganized, uncommunicative, and unhelpful. Only one person at the check in desk seemed to have authorization to make any changes, so all other agents were running back and forth to speak with him, and not communicating with passengers. It took over an hour to get clarity on the situation and rebook my connecting flight to Washington for a different flight 8 hours later. The only compensation offered was one meal voucher worth R100 (roughly $7). They would not even look at other Star Alliance flights for early arrival in Washington, and said they were not authorized to consider upgrading my ticket. When I called the Turkish customer service, they essentially said "What do you want us to do about it? You have to submit a formal complaint." Boarding was totally disorganized. In theory there are boarding groups, but after business class and all the high-ranking loyalty members, it's pretty much a mad rush. This seems to be the common practice for Turkish now. In general, Turkish has a great entertainment system on all their long-haul flights, with tons of movies - including very new releases - music, games, etc. They also provide complimentary kits with socks, slippers, eye mask, earplugs and dental kit, even for economy passengers. The meals are fairly good for airlines. However, legroom in economy isn't great. I'm 6'1", and had difficulty getting comfortable with my knees jammed into the back of the seat in front of me. On this particular flight, I was in row 18. The cabin crew were frantic, disorganized, and shouting to each other across passengers. One half of our row was served the meal, and the other half had to wait over 30 minutes to be served for some reason. By that time the vegetarian option was no longer available. Crew also had to run back and forth between service carts because they were frequently out of very common beverages (like sparkling water. And ice.), and on two occasions crew left a drawer from a cart full of trash sitting in the aisle. There were several times that crew ran carts into passengers - including once into my knee that was not in the aisle - and didn't even acknowledge doing so. They also stopped the carts in front of occupied lavatories, temporarily trapping passengers. So not terribly professional. While not specifically on this flight, the experience in Istanbul airport with Turkish Airlines' staff was awful. Zero interest in helping, rude and dismissive, and overall terrible."

Pros: "The entertainment choices, including live sports, were excellent."
Cons: "The boarding was chaotic, and we sat on the tarmac for over an hour."

Pros: "I left my iPad in the seat back of my previous flight to Istanbul and by the next morning they had my iPad to me and Hungary! Very professional!"

Cons: "The flight attendant was kind of rude. They ignored what I would say when the drinks came around. Also, one of them would try to hurry me and always tap on my shoulder instead of just saying "excuse me""

Cons: "See above"

Cons: "Just as bad as it was from Rome to Istanbul"

Pros: "The people were very nice. Polite and friendly. The entertainment was good as well. I was impressed with their vegetarian food, for airplane food."
Cons: "The boarding process and the crew handing out drinks and food seemed unorganized. Not sure if they were understaffed. However, they still remained nice even though you could tell they were stressed."

Pros: "Included meal and entertainment"
Cons: "AC only on for takeoff and landing. Not much water so became very dehydrated and overly warm."

Pros: "Crew was helpful."
Cons: "No entertainment"

Pros: "Nice crew, comfortable seating, great price"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The flight from DXB was delayed, causing us to miss the connection to LIS in IST. 2 hours after standing at the transfer desk they put us on a flight to LIS via CDG. Luggage was kept in IST. Now we are in LIS with no luggage and no confirmation on its whereabouts. Lost and found staff at LIS (Portway) showed total confusion in claiming luggage was in CDG. Today two planes arrived in LIS from IST, none of them with our luggage. Screen shows my name with mention "Not loaded" regarding the luggage. This incompetence is unacceptable from "Europe's best airline". This title is misleading advertising and should not be allowed."

Pros: "zero customer services and i will never fly with this airlines again"
Cons: "zero customer services, rude . and i will never fly with this airlines again"

Pros: "The food and service"

Pros: "Turkish airlines is a nice airline company and as I always had wonderful experinces, this time i purchased their tickets. The pilots are wonderful - u never feel any uneasiness when the plain takes off or lands; the crew is always attentive and the food is good :)"
Cons: "The plain crew did well and the plain was on time in Istambul."

Pros: "On time departure and arrival. Seat back entertainment systems were quite good."
Cons: "Seats were a bit cramped. Meal was OK, not great."

Cons: "I didn't go and was refused my refund"

Pros: "We like Turkish Airlines - it's comfortable - we actually managed to sleep, the toilets are big, the entertainment is enjoyable and if possible, we'll always fly with Turkish"
Cons: "The earphones are uncomfortable"

Cons: "A sleeping baby strapped to the body and a seatbelt around both Wasn enough we had to wake the baby up and strap separate ? Again the baby was strapped to the body of the parent and the seatbelt around both."

Pros: "All 4 flights were late."

Pros: "Good crew, helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Food is not as good as some other airlines I’ve been on."

Pros: "Customer service by the crew"
Cons: "Lufthansa still charges full price like usual, but on a 8+ hour flight to serve a cat size meal of pasta soaked in some pesto sauce is unacceptable! Thank god I had lunch at Frankfurt before departure! Covid-19 should not be an excuse for lack of services! I work for a company which falls into the Essential business category and despite the pandemic we NEVER EVER compromised with the top quality of our product! I am so dissatisfied with Lufthansa and what they have become, pale shadow of a great company, very sad...."

Pros: "Seat back tv’s"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 3 hours, food was mediocre at best"

Pros: "Crew was great. The food Was good."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable and there was no air control."

Cons: "Wasn't able to online check-in thus losing my window seat 21A I had selected."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flights with long enough connections that you can actually get on them"

Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Meals and entertainment"

Pros: "Friendly and professional staff, comfortable and on-time flight."
Cons: "Clear up-front notification about first checked bag not being included in ticket price. This info did not appear at the time the booking was made. Very frustrating."

Pros: "Amazing crew. Took care of people in every possible way and were concerned about their comfort. The food and drinks were above and beyond. Other airline CEO’s should fly Lufthansa and find out what they need to do to impress their customers. side pockets beneath the windows are great to have."
Cons: "The only thing I can say is the seating on a long flight needs a little more room. When the person in front lets their seat back it gets to be a little cramped."

Pros: "The crew was ok. The seating was comfortable as we had good leg room as we booked on a premium economy class."
Cons: "We requested for a chicken meal at dinner time but instead my husband and I was served the beef meal. I was very disappointed as firstly the way the beef was cooked tasted horrid. Secondly a mix up at the catering dept like labelling beef meal as chicken should never happen!"

Cons: "Boarding from Nairobi was ridiculous. The plan was extremely uncomfortable."

Cons: "The only thing that was iffy were the movies Most were not recent But I did watch Bohemian Rhapsody Excellent"

Cons: "Cold on the plane/food needs more choice and improvement. Plane was late to arrive-over an hour later"

Pros: "Excelent service"
Cons: "I liked all"

Pros: "Boarding was a bit hectic loading an A380 and that was probably the worst part. Service was very pleasant but a little scarce. Premium Economy was better than most. Food was not that good and ranked with the boarding."
Cons: "Food and boarding"

Pros: "Friendly staff!!!"
Cons: "All good!!"

Pros: "I brought my wedding dress with me and on both flights, the flight attendents were so attentive to that and hung in it the cabin crew closet. It was that extra step of care that I am grateful for!"

Pros: "Crew was kind and friendly. The touch screens were responsive and easy to use."
Cons: "The food was a bit disappointing. It would be great if the bread rolls could be heated up and the pasta dishes be made more interesting."

Cons: "Departure was delayed causing me to miss my connection from Frankfurt to San Francisco."

Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable, hardly any legroom"

Pros: "We were warmly welcomed on board by the flight captain. I had not expected this. My wife has some physical challenges and received special treatment, in fact we were accorded priority in boarding as she had to temporarily use a wheel chair. Me and my daughter all enjoyed the privilege by association."
Cons: "My wife is diebetes, we had requested for a special diet but although this was documented on the air ticket, there was oversight and she had to make do with normal menu. Fortunately there was no adverse consequences."

Cons: "4/4 flights with involuntary stop-overs were delayed, causing 4 panics and 2 missed flights. Given their proclivity for busing passengers to distant planes in Herman efforts, a 50-minute allowance for changing planes, when added to the frequent Kate departures, is just not sufficient. They should acknowledge it and sell only flights that allow for 80-90 minutes in the airports that are so woefully managed (eg, Frankfurt and Munich). It’s back to BA for me!"

Pros: "There was plenty of room, great staff, no worries whatsoever."
Cons: "The food on Lufthansa has definitely slipped since the last time I flew them a couple of years ago. The main courses are just plain bad. Everything else is good"

Pros: "NEVER AGAIN"

Pros: "Exellent and smooth flight, thank you."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled."

Pros: "Lufthansa makes coach travel tolerable. Blankets, pillows, free access to on board entertainment and a large selection of real food, not just snacks, and beverages. All beverages available the entire flight. Plane was clean and everything in working order."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."

Cons: "Airline lost my luggage on the last leg of our trip."

Pros: "Congratulations for your pilot! He gave us the best landing ever! Very smooth and safe landing. One minute we were in the air and the other he was just parking the airplane!"

Cons: "2 hour delay"

Cons: "The lost luggage for 4 days and a lot of thing were missing from the suitcases."

Pros: "Was on time , food is pretty delicious still."
Cons: "Flight crew . No alcohol available after the 1st! round. She told me she doesn't have it maybe later.. she never gave me after that. I always had it min 3-4 times before. My first choice is always Lufthansa but after this time I am not sure anymore, I was very disappointed with my attendant and made this trip a bad experience with them. Movie selection not so great either"

Cons: "Being put in a distanced place for boarding"

Pros: "Planes were new. Delayed flights but caught up by staff."
Cons: "Food was terrible. Check in process chaotic. Service was fair."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Waste 3 hours in connecting flight."

Pros: "Nothing!!!!!!"
Cons: "What was there to like?"

Cons: "They change the gate for transfer last minute"

Pros: "A flight without screen is a long flight."

Cons: "If Canada wants to charge an ETA fee, then this should come up when booking the tickets. Finding out at the airport then being subjected to a mandatory payment process on my smartphone with zero help from Air Canada is just classless. And the crew almost appear delighted communicating the fact that failure to do this means I will not get on the plane. Like expensive plane tickets are bought on charity. I even tried to cancel the ticket and your agents, Calvin and a lady who did not have a badge gave me a card with a 1800 no. that was never answered."

Pros: "I was so pleased with all the people involved from ticket desk to pilots and stewardesses. I would recommend Air Canada to everyone."

Pros: "Staff was very friendly."
Cons: "Too short of flight for entertainment rating, or food."

Pros: "I liked the in flight movies"
Cons: "Can't say there was anything I didn't."

Pros: "Overall the flight was ok"
Cons: "I was not a fan of the food but more important, the headset lack was broken. I had to pull the cable constantly to be able to hear something"

Pros: "Lufthansa is one of the best in the world at transatlantic flights. There was extra room in business so they relocated me to a spot where I could have a bit more extra space. The food was wonderful. The service was wonderful. The flight left on time and arrived early. The seat was comfy. Really nice flight."
Cons: "Um, have to think. They could find a better ice cream? They should have turned on the outlets earlier so I could recharge my phone?"

Cons: "The 45 minutes between flights was too short. there is no way this is feasible given that we had to go through passport control. Kayak should NOT have recommended this combination of flights. We almost missed the flight to Chicago."

Pros: "THE MAIN CREDIT FOR LUFTHANSA FLIGHTS ARE VERY PUNCTUAL IN TIME"

Pros: "Roominess, great crew, food was good. Crew kept passengers hydrated often. Flights were on time. Great communication with flight crew regarding information in flight. Best airline I ever flew."
Cons: "Cabin was really cold, felt like AC was too high."

Pros: "Multiple entertainment choices. Food in Economy was better than expected and hot food was served at a good temperature."
Cons: "Tight leg room in Economy and the seat was a little hard."

Pros: "NOTHING!"
Cons: "EVERYTHING! They put us on a United flight. 11 hours on the plane with NO ENTERTAINMENT. They apologized at the end and told us to all fill out a complaint at united.com. I did and still haven't heard back. The flight attendants were rude and it was a horrible flight. Worst international flight I have taken in my life. And it was for an adoption appointment with a judge in Riga, and we barely made it."

Pros: "I have liked everything in lufthansa there was nothing to complain about thanks lufthansa for your respectful and helpful"
