Pros: "Crew was nice and attentive"
Cons: "More leg room"

Pros: "Excellent"

Cons: "The movie and TV options were impressive; however, in-flight WiFi and power would have been convenient and improved the entertainment on board the flight."

Cons: "TOOO long."

Pros: "Customer service and food."

Pros: "The on flight entertainment is great. It’s very accommodating especially for long flights."
Cons: "Onboarding was ridiculous. They merged two gates together with no instructions to the large crowd of people boarding the plane. We were scheduled to start boarding at a certain time and we didn’t actually board until 45 minutes later. When we asked the attendants when we would begin boarding and did they have any instructions they were extremely rude, laughing with one another and taking selfies. When we we asked for the third time they brushed us off with a time frame. It was extremely disappointing."

Pros: "Best business class I have ever been on. Better than most First class."

Pros: "Food excellent. Great movie selection. Very nice dreamliner. No complaints"

Cons: "carry-on did not fit on center overhead compartment unless I put it side ways (Same carry-on suitcase fit nicely on Emirates airplanes, so the carry-on overhead compartments have been made smaller on Qatar on purpose or by engineering error, and I will not fly Qatar airlines again. Less food options. I went to the Gally and they only had kitkat bars for food. Emirates offer fruit, sandwiches, and many choices at ALL TIMES of the flight for economy class passengers. Entertainment computer (Android based system) ran slow and out of memory at times. Seats were not comfortable for 12hrs flight. My butt was starting to hurt. I did not have this issues on Emirates flights."

Cons: "The sandwiches are a little dry and movie selection a little limited."

Pros: "Good legroom, friendly crew."

Pros: "The crew on my side of the cabin was very good."
Cons: "Not having available air for the center seats made our flight a truly awful experience. The older style seats are actually more comfortable for taller and larger people. My wife was virtually ignored by the male crew on her side of the aircraft."

Pros: "I was actually impressed with the entertainment selection :)"
Cons: "The economy seats are just unfortunately not a place you can get comfortable enough to sleep. On 14 hour flights one hopes to sleep."

Pros: "This was car better than most flights I've been on in the US. Lots of leg room excellent entertainment system good service and customer care."

Pros: "They had a surprise business class update waiting for me. Wonderful experience."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Friendly crew, good entertainment options"
Cons: "Nearly empty flight and twice got assigned seat in very front with screaming child. Going had to move to nonreclining seat after 1st 12 hour flight. Assigned last seat in plane going even though short layover - had to run after 12 hours on plane since got last bus to terminal and waited, waited, waited for final passengers, not fun. Way back flight changed and no accomodation made (a lounge, room, anything) for 7.5 hour layover "you'll just have to hang in there" in middle of night even though others on my tour with same issue in dubai got a room included. With added stress of going through qatar which i booked because of longer layover so wouldnt miss connection just before political decree announced, i will do anything to avoid qatar again despite the very friendly crew. And having to wrap my camera equipment to check it, get extra insurance, such a pain."

Pros: "Boarding was good and the flight was on time"
Cons: "The food is lowering in quality as time passes. It's very disappointing to see one of Qatar Airways advantages lowering in quality."

Pros: "Good food includes veg."

Pros: "Good service all the way to final destination. A+ service. Newer model airplane."
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Qatar is quite possibly the best airline in the world, especially on its long haul flights. It is heads above the other two major Persian Gulf airlines. All the employees with whom I dealt were excellent and customer-oriented. The planes between Doha and London were new, had more space than older planes and had an excellent selection of movies and TV shows. I ordered special meals on all the flights, and I was very satisfied. I have been a fan of Qatar Airways since I flew it to Australia in 2011. It continues to do a superb job, even in Economy."

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: "I liked everything about the flight and the service was great!"

Pros: "Nice flight attendants, frequent fluid services."
Cons: "There was no Wifi in the plane."

Pros: "Everything was great except Food and service comfort of the plane Cleanliness was superior"
Cons: "One crew member was a pain if you wanted ice you got 3 cubes ask for more he would ignore you. He was rud and nasty. I mentioned to other crew members they say just his way. If that is his way maybe he need find new job."

Pros: "Flight was not crowded, room to stretch out. Food and service was good."
Cons: "Difficult boarding procedure."

Pros: "High quality gluten free meals (best I've had on Qatar Airways)."
Cons: "Seating needs to be more spacious."

Cons: "Too late."

Pros: "Good food and excellent service"
Cons: "Noisy plane made the entertainment inaudible"

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: "Good food. Professional crew. and overall good experience for a 15.5 hour flight."
Cons: "Again, If you allow people to choose tickets online and they pick the front row, at least don't put them in the back row. That is the opposite of what they requested. After a.long flight and the limited recline, I am very sore in my back. Probably the most uncomfortable flight to date in my travels."

Pros: "Crew was great! For economy class, seat was comfortable."

Pros: "Amazing crew!! Lots of entertainment options. Food decent. Better than on trip from Seattle to Dubai. Check in Bathrooms kept clean on long flight We were encouraged to walk around"
Cons: "Boarding cumbersome We left Dubai late and arrived Seattle late. It was a little g flight already and the extra seat time of the delay was difficult."

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: "I am so glad to choose you guys thank you for everything"

Pros: "The crew good except one man i guess from India"
Cons: "The food was not good at all"

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

Pros: "Crew was amazing. There is always someone from emirates around to help."
Cons: "Little more room on a 14 1/2 hour flight would be nice"

Cons: "The Crew could be more friendly"

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."

Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew was nice."
Cons: "The entertainment options and food were outdated and very much unpleasant. Probably the ground staff was careless, thus, they just broke my one baggage in that transit."

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!"

Pros: "It was wonderfull"
Cons: "Legroom"

Pros: "the food is excellent"

Cons: "Seat allotment"

Pros: "Well, the best thing was my free upgrade from Business into First ....which is perfect for the 14+ hours from Dubai to Seattle..... :)"

Cons: "No"

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: "The screen not working I feel very bored"

Pros: "entertainment part made time fly from Dubai to Seattle and staff too were awesome."
Cons: "15-hour flight not happy thing to be mid-air."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Sorry...pushed a button the it disappeared. Will try again... As always, returning home from an international two week trip is always thrilling but exhausting. The hours of travel seem slow. My half table of Advil PM worked wonders though. Gracious service, always willing to help myself and those seated around me. Clean bathroom facilities. Overall, I'm thrilled to be home safely."
Cons: "I picked slimly through my food. Nothing seemed too appetizing. The entertainment options were a bit difficult to navigate. Choices were a bit limited as well for a long flight."

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: "Despite booking wheelchair assistance throughout, my parents did not get that benefit."

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: "As comfortable as can be expected in economy class... more comfortable than other carriers to be sure. Service from the flight crewy was excellent. The food actually quite good."
Cons: "Boarding process is the one area that could be improved."

Cons: "missed the flight to seattle due to emirates delays, total travel time was 50 hours instead of 20, what a nightmare"

Pros: "The entertainment system, the items handed out for our comfort, the food, the attention."
Cons: "The problem which happens when the person in front of you leans back his/her seat. It makes watching something on the entertainment system very difficult!"

Pros: "I was travelling to Addis Ababa on Dec29 But I wanted to celebrate New years eve in Dubai and stayed for 6days',But that wasn't Good idea.They charge me More than $300 for my luggage to go Addis Ababa,I know I have extra luggage but my thought was starting seattle until Addis."
Cons: "I will never ever use emirates"

Pros: "from start to finish Emirates has always got the best service for economy class, been flying EK from DXB BOM and SEA DXB BOM for last 10 years with complete satisfaction"
Cons: "no complains"

Pros: "All was good"

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Kids"

Pros: "Food taste, staff service"
Cons: "Front of the section seat - Very uncomfortable, badly positioned. I was in seat 37H if I remember it correctly. It was a Aisle seat and this particular seat was extremely uncomfortable. Everyone passing by would somehow kick my feet on their way to the restroom. The tray was too small."

Pros: "Excellent experience"

Cons: "I got food poisoning on this flight. Cramped in the middle seat for 14 hours while throwing up was not pleasant."

Pros: "Awesome! I love flying with Emirates and I will continue flying with them."

Cons: "the vegeterian option was missing in lbreakfast and lunch"

Pros: "We arrived."

Pros: "There was sufficient legroom at the seat. Amenities were provided to remain "fresh". Not computer literate, the entertainment was more than adequate."
Cons: "I told the flight attendant while boarding that it was not appropriate to have very little children on a flight of this length. Much to my chagrin, an Indian woman had two howling urchins one row in front of me. These howling urchins proceeded to scream their lungs out for 11 of the 13 hours of the flight!! One of the babies was so small, it looked like she had just pushed the critter out earlier that day!! Had they told the Indian woman to drive or swim to Dubai, the ratings would've have been excellent. I did not pay good money to have to sit in a NURSERY!!!!!"

Pros: "I had an empty seat next to me"
Cons: "A big lady sat in the empty seat because it was on the isle....dang it"

Cons: "I loved it"

Cons: "Customer service at cairo airport is soooooo bad. They don't care at all about customers."

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: "On time on each leg of the journey. Excellent food, excellent service. In flight Internet available for just US $2 for duration of the journey. Thoughtful meal selections and gifts"
Cons: "Seat selection is very constrained 48 hours before journey, even for passengers booked together on same ticket. Would strongly recommend that automatic default seating selection for passengers booked on the same ticket should be for all of them to be seated together, right from the time the ticket is paid for rather than having to individually select where each passenger sits."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The service that Emirates provided."

Pros: "Timings were perfect for flight landing and departure. Cleanliness was there."
Cons: "Service was very poor. Asked for warm water 3-4 times - no response.. Asked for green tea - no response."

Cons: "Food & drinks"

Pros: "They were helpful"
Cons: "The entertainment services on the plane"

Pros: "The crew was very hospitable. Good food."
Cons: "The champagne should be served more chilled and the bottle should be stopperd to preserve its bubbles through the end of the flight. Avianca lounge at MIA is subpar."

Pros: "Entertainment and punctuality"
Cons: "I think some of your steward and stewardesses exhibits racist tendencies. I am not sure why this is so. They need to be educated that we are all paying customers and they should know how to avoid the discrimination trap."

Cons: "No flat bed in business class. Flight delayed and 1 hour 10 minutes late; my bag did not make the connection in Istanbul. My bad is due to be delivered tonight."

Pros: "meals are pretty good, though repetitive"
Cons: "old plane, connections at IST are inconvenient and the airport is in terrible condition. Flight was crowded and boarding was chaotic. Ran out of meals. Plane was quite hot (and I'm usually cold). Overall poor quality."

Cons: "No usb chargers on plane"

Pros: "crew and service are great."
Cons: "wasnt able to print my boarding pass while checking in online. being able to do so would have helped a lot if i didnt have to check-in at the counter as the flight was at 5am. i could have just got in and spent the night at a lounge."

Pros: "no clear on when to go"
Cons: "check in delay"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The seats in business class were not suitable for sleeping even though I paid top dollar and it was a 4:45am flight. They let a random person on the plane and had to do a full security sweep before taking off."

Pros: "Great selection of movies, excellent food, friendly service."

Cons: "Waitwd 1 hour"

Pros: "Friendly checking in staff. Easy to us and good variety movies."
Cons: "Short leg-room, squeezed chairs, air stewards too busy to remember to follow up requests, Less than enough choice for non-cheese food-type. Less than clear English command."

Pros: "The entertainment was good"
Cons: "We asked for special meals and they told us they only had one type of meal on board"

Pros: "overall, service was great"
Cons: "seats are too narrow"

Pros: "The food was excellent"

Pros: "The food was good, the entertainment ample and up-to-date, and our flight attendant on that flight was very nice and helpful. My sister is incredibly tall and they were able to put us in an exit row, which was much more comfortable for her."

Cons: "Turkish airlines from Istanbul to Nairobi Announcement for medical personnel or doctor to come help. We pushed the button and the flight attendant came to our row. We unbuckled and we’re ready to get up and he said “ I have an elderly woman but first I need to see your license. In shock we said you need the license for us to be able to help? He said unfortunately that is our policy. I happen to have mine because I brought it along for the medical mission. I showed it to him then he gave some detail still not allowing us to see the person that needed attention:"

Cons: "flight attendants from Nairobi to Istanbul were rude and unaccomodating. asking for a glass of water appeared to overwhelm the flight attendant."

Cons: "The crew was not very warm and/or welcoming - they were short, impersonal, and kind of cold"

Cons: "Flight was late leaving Nairobi due to a catering issue. Missed connection through Istanbul to Manchester. Placed on AF flight to Paris then Manchester. Paris flight was delayed. Missed connection to Manchester. Paid for my own hotel room overnight in Paris CDG. Flight will arrive a day late in Manchester. That means I have missed my flights from Manchester to UK with Air Lingus (booked through Kayak website) It seems I must now purchase a new ticket to get home from Manchester to Nashville. All expenses I can ill afford. Lesson learned...cannot afford to use Kayak anymore...sorry."

Pros: "My experience on Turkish Airlines exceeded expectations. Boarding was smooth and the flight was on time. Service was excellent and staff professional. The crew was courteous but the hostesses could try smiling a bit more. Their courtesy was appreciated but it felt very methodical, more of an obligation and not spontaneous. The pilot did a great introduction and gave information about the trip. Also the plane toilets were clean compared to other companies. I expected to see a wider selection of more recent and award winning movies. Will definitely fly Turkish Airlines again."
Cons: "I had a 4 hour layover. The airport is not organized. It was impossible to find any Turkish Airline help desks and personnel. I definitely would have expected to see more ground personnel helping travellers."

Cons: "I did not like the way I was treated by supervisor st the checking desk while checking at Nairobi, I am not sure if he is an employee of the airport or of Turkish airline. he frustrated me and was not offering any assistance, I also realized that he frustrated two other people during and another staff says he is fond of doing that all the time"

Cons: "departure time changed 3 times"

Pros: "Everything, Good service, timely and on pojnt"
Cons: "There was a slight delay on landing"

Pros: "The few and very rarely seen employees are not even willing to listen to our questions let alone help us, Ican for sure say in 1 out of 10 wotkers there was only one that was willing to help And did let the one that helped us know I and my co travelers apriciated her or him to me there was one girl who offered me help after I cried because I thougth I would miss my flight to houston. I told her tgank you a 1000 times."
Cons: "Every thing Lack of help Lack of infirmation Lack of annoucement of next step Lack of a simple WIFI so I could let someone know what is happening to me There was no airport free wifi This turkish airline have now lost me as a customer unless I am traveling to somaliya where no other airline goes Bye bye Turkish air I am deeply disappointed at the lebel of the airport serveses For that reason I am done dealing with it and I will let this known to my friends and Family so they also stop doing bussniss with this airline It it my new mission now to stop anyone flying turkish air because of customer serves ... I just glad my horrifying experiance is over and I am home now Thanks for askiking me how was my flight"

Pros: "Not much"

Pros: "Lots of room on the plane, light meals but good, helpful service"

Pros: "Great seat (3A), great service and food. Very friendly crew. Entertainment is great with plenty of movies."
Cons: "Check in in Istanbul was long and confusing due to new safety measures. I had 4 different passport checks with one pat down search and carry on search. Not enough time to even enjoy the Turkish air lounge. However I do. appreciate the safety measures and the effort that come with it. I rather be safe than sorry. The security personnel was very friendly."

Pros: "The food, prices and extras were outstanding"
Cons: "The crew orders you around like a high school Political Science teacher; bossy, ride with an attitude"

Pros: "Food was good. Entertainment was great."
Cons: "Flight was delayed but that wasn't the main problem. Went to the wrong gate for my connecting flight, Turkish air rep at the gate checked my boarding pass, didn't say a word about me being at the wrong gate. Tgere was no announcement of any kind (found out later, Turkish sir doesn't do announcement at the Istanbul airport. No clue as to why). Thought, tgere was another delay and by the time I asked, it was too late to catch my flight and that's when I got a full dose of every single person w Turkish air trying to stiff me with the most outrageous penalty for changing Nguyen my ticket. Started out at $1114 on a $758 ticket, then went down to $925 and if I stay over night, down to $750. Seriously? Rude, talking down at me and telling me that if I don't pay the penalty, my return ticket will be cancelled. I keep getting bounced from one person to another being told to wait here and wait there then I finally got so sick of all of it, bought a new connecting flight online, spending the night in Istanbul and will see what will happen w my return flight to the US. I call this 'theft' as if i buy an entire new ticket from Istanbul to Cairo then back to the US online, it will cost me less than the penalty they're trying to get me to pay. Shame on you Turkish airline!! You'd think w all the issues they're having w tourism in their country these days they'd care about not doing this kind of mistreatment of their clients."

Pros: "The attentiveness of staff."
Cons: "The video screens did not work. Our seats were changed at the last minute without any indication to why."

Cons: "No foot rest, help the short people to store luggage."

Pros: "I liked the crew and their behaviour very much"
Cons: "I will never be happy for the cramped space but I can see that it has to be so"

Pros: "Decent entertainment system, reasonably priced in-flight wifi, decent food and friendly accommodating staff."
Cons: "Boarding process can be a bit chaotic, but they do well to organize it by groups or seats/rows, so still miles better than any US carrier."

Cons: "they lost my luggage by my first stop"

Pros: "Pleasant crew, great quality service, good food."
Cons: "Comfort was not the greatest. Felt smaller than other airlines but trip was 11 hours long so it wasn't comfortable."

Pros: "I don't understand, national flags so minimum information to passenger to found connection flight gate in Istanbul airport. No passports controller, no one person. Finally i found may gate..in have seated at boarding lounge, after that we must que again, they make passport control..wasting time."

Cons: "Flight didn't start boarding until posted departure time and no announcement was made. the food was horrible and smelled horrible. Airplane exhaust was permeated the cabin making passengers nauseous,"

Pros: "It met and exceeded some expectations. I guess part of it was having read so many reviews about other people's bags not making it. I am glad all my bags arrived in one piece"
Cons: "Wish there were better snack options, especially considering how long the flight was"

Pros: "Timeliness"
Cons: "Seating"

Cons: "It made no sense to board an hour and a half before takeoff."

Cons: "I feel like all the problems the aircraft had it should've been repaired before trying to use it, upon boarding they told us the left engine had to be started from an external source, as a new flyer that was terrifying to hear"

Pros: "the food was really top notch and service was great and friendly"

Cons: "The boarding process at LAX was awful. I’m sure the horrible shuttle wait and transfer from terminal to terminal is the airport’s fault, but the airline did not do anywhere near enough to inform passengers of what was in store. It was confusing and annoying."

Pros: "Kara was really nice to us."
Cons: "Noisy plane."

Cons: "The plane bathroom was old and junky"

Pros: "Other than the delay by the Hong Kong Airport controller, everything went smoothly. The plane was late to Seattle."
Cons: "The luggage custom clearing would be much better if we could do it like the Vancouver BC where an electronic monitor was used to identify one's luggage without the need to handle them manually. Much more efficient and allowing folks to get on the connecting flights easier."

Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "Lack of legroom in economy"

Cons: "Food was bad."

Cons: "Poor WiFi. Paid extra to get it, but didnt sporadic at best."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "None of it!! Poor selection"
Cons: "All of it. Again poor selection"

Pros: "Boarding super excellent! Also: Best landing I've ever experienced! Props to the pilot!!"

Cons: "Paid $28 for a Wi-Fi package that didn't work. No refund...."

Cons: "There was a kid screaming on both flights and t was not a good time"

Pros: "Nice and attentive staff, smooth on and off."

Pros: "Boarding was easy"
Cons: "Arrived 15 mins late and then taxied for another 5-10 mins."

Cons: "horrible boarding management in SJC."

Pros: "Bags arrived on the belt quickly"
Cons: "Why is there not saying precheck to use after you've been funneled through customs? ATL is advanced enough to have kiosk for arrival, even for those confused and not with global entry, but then forces you to wait in security line instead of the typically faster tea precheck line. Every minute I'm in line, I'm not spending money"

Cons: "Enforce your baggage size and number limits. A significant number of passengers take bags onboard that are oversized."

Pros: "The landing experience."
Cons: "The organization of serving meals."

Pros: "I enjoyed not having a layover."
Cons: "I do not like being charged to bring a bag. I feel like a 560 fee should include a bag."

Cons: "Unable to travel due to Corona restrictions, company would not refund ticket."

Cons: "Severe turbulence and many of the Egyptian passengers didn't understand the announcements and were getting up"

Cons: "Internet speed is weak."

Pros: "Business class upgrade"
Cons: "Sitting in window next time"

Pros: "Nice people"
Cons: "Some games for kids"

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Leg room"

Cons: "Server was mean"

Cons: "No TV in the chair ,even no group TV The the crew member in the business class lady was too aggressive in her way as if we are working for her , too tide chairs"

Pros: "Lufthansa long haul flights has a really cool air flight status system."
Cons: "Sometimes you just get the bad luck of having a smelly passenger next to you. This was one of those flights."

Cons: "-"

Cons: "My 2 bags haven't arrived from Sunday 6 January till now (10 January) and all my winter clothes plus other important things are in it. I check every day with lufthansa call center but still no progress."

Cons: "The temperature was too warm. With a full plane there is a need for more air circulation. The selection of movies was old, there weren’t enough new movies."

Pros: "I like the cree"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Boarding was ridiculously unorganized and stressful."

Cons: "See first comment."

Pros: "Thanks for continuing to offer complimentary, hot meals on your international flights! Crew very friendly. Despite being in economy cabin, crew attempted to make it a good experience."
Cons: "Long flight, bathrooms start to look ugly. Incoming plane landed way out on the tarmac, obligating passengers to be all packed into shuttle bus which took a long time to get to terminal."

Pros: "Lots of food with free wine"

Cons: "The crew change the seat with a new boarding pass without my permission . They are not professional at all"

Pros: "The crew was nice and polite."
Cons: "TV screens were old. Its response to the touch was iffy. It used to detect the touch point correctly sometimes but not other times. Often it took quiet some time to read and start something of my choice, which was quiet frustrating."

Pros: "Keeping in mind it was an economy class, I thought the flight was fine. Decent food. I would have preferred some with a heavy cheese sauce. I had gotten sick in Egypt and I felt lousy (dizziness and headache). Despite my physical condition I thought the flight was okay. Crew were professional and airplane was clean. Beer to drink. Other than the fact I was sick, I enjoyed the flight."
Cons: "The dinner option was okay. I felt the heavy cheese sauce pasta was a bit too rich. Other components to the dinner was fine."

Pros: "Prompt, great crew"
Cons: "No power ports, entertainment options"

Pros: "Check in, crew and food"
Cons: "Over than one hour to board only one security lane was open and no enough trays for check our stuff"

Pros: "We had more room with a 2-seat array in the middle of the plane. It was more comfortable than the 3 seat array."

Pros: "No thing at all"
Cons: "1- the aircraft from cairo to munich was so small that they didn’t allow the carry on baggage and I had to put it with the check in baggage. 2- the special meal ( muslim meal ) that I ordered was a veggie meal !!!!! With no meat or chicken at all , apparently they don’t know what the meaning of a muslim meal is ! It means to have halal meat , we are not vegetarians ! 3- my baggage didn’t arrive to the airport and I filed a report and was told that I will have them tomorrow and now after four days the baggage didn’t arrive yet and I was told that one of them is missing !!!!!!! I can’t hate them enough."

Cons: "Walking under rain from the plane to terminal. Not as good as Lufthansa was some years ago. Old planes."

Pros: "The good organization and the friendly atmosphere."
Cons: "The bad movies."

Cons: "They left my suitcase in Frankfurt with our car keys."

Pros: "Breakfast should not be served 4 AM Cairo time, 40 minutes after boarding"

Cons: "Staff was rude"

Pros: "Comfortable."
Cons: "Needed more visible organized pickets showing the seat ranges avoiding mixed lined passengers and delay."

Cons: "I made seat reservation in the internet and the LH agent change it"

Cons: "Seat was too small and really uncomfortable"

Cons: "My video player had substantially less options than the rest of my aisle. The food was below average."

Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Crew was friendly. I enjoyed the choice of entertainment. Food and drink were fine."
Cons: "I wish we had more leg room. It was so crowded and I could barely move!"

Cons: "Food was pretty bad"

Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "can't think of anything"

Cons: "The vegetation meals were not appealing. There was no flavor and strange food combinations."

Pros: "You always have the best looking flight attendants. After a year in Egypt it was refreshing to see something other than black haired woman. The food was great as always. Keep doing what youre doing. Thank you Olivia."

Pros: "Staff"

Pros: "Was given an upgraded seat due to the confusion on my confirmed seat being given away."
Cons: "Confusion on my confirmed seat assignment caused major frustration when in a foreign country. We took off late so missed my shuttle in Seattle so had to wait 2 hours for the next shuttle."

Pros: "Lufthansa rocks!"

Pros: "Entertainment and crew was excellent"
Cons: "One flight assistant seemed a bit gruff and impatient compared to the others . Also food was nothing special. We could have used more water offerings and trash pickups during the flight afterwards the cabin was a mess."

Pros: "The crew was awesome. Friendly, efficient and professional. I upgraded my seat for more legroom and it was simply amazing."
Cons: "Nothing to report :)"

Cons: "They ran out of one of the meal options and then one of the meals later had sauerkraut which the smell of in the plane was overwhelming and made me feel unwell."

Pros: "I witnessed the flight crew defuse a conflict between two male passengers (that had escalated to shouting and throwing each others belongings out of overhead storage) before we left Frankfurt. A male steward showed he could be professionally stern when backing up a female coworker handling the situation and compassionate when he comforted an elderly woman in distress halfway through the intercontinental flight. The entire crew I interacted with in economy class were professional, friendly, welcoming, and helpful."
Cons: "Boarding the entire plane at once was inefficient and caused conflicts over the availability of overhead storage. Obviously this is an airline decision and not a flight specific problem."

Pros: "They have some films with subtitles- perfect for Deaf people."
Cons: "Wish all films have subtitles- there are millions of deaf people in the world, you know?"

Pros: "Vissited my brother in law in Karlsruhe Germany wonderful trip to and from Frankfurt"

Pros: "Friendly, professional staff"
Cons: "Personal space too small"
