Cons: "Entertainment and food timings are odd."
Pros: "Doha to hyd was good. Crew was courteous."
Cons: "Even after online checkin. Just to drop the bags it took 1 hr. The thin old black lady at the baggage drop off counter was very partial in treating people. She allowed a black male take 27.8 kgs but asked us to adjust our bags when we had 23 kgs. Also if the passenger is allowed to carry a laptop bag, according to her training and theory she only knows 1 shape and does not recognize a back pack which has only the laptop. I travelled several times in Qatar, but never had this kind of experience."
Pros: "The crew service"
Cons: "The cost of internet access"

Pros: "Check-in was a breeze; considering this being an internationaly travel, baggage check-in process was fast and easy. Was in and out in about 5 minutes. Goodie bag was a good idea; the goodie bag contains an eye mask, mini tooth brush, paste, hand cream, etc. These all were great idea and definitely helpful. However this is ruined by the tooth paste. It was a tiny tooth paste, fair enough but the opening is sealed tight w/o a way to easily pry open. This was a total bad idea of packaging. Flight tips were also good idea and informational."
Cons: "Atlanta to Doha was about 14 hours flight. The seats were cramped and narrow (no side support) Seat cushion has been stripped down to bare minimum, so effectively you may not feel much of a cushion. Cramped legroom Seats felt like junk and I had started having leg cramps after few hours. This so disappointing for a premier airline like Qatar. Overall a very uncomfortable ride."
Pros: "The crew who were dedicated to our row came by and introduced themselves individually. They came frequently to ask for anything I required. They prompty responded to a request call. The lavatory to passenger ratio for Business class was excellent and I never had to wait for more than a minute. The food was very good but there is room for improvement."
Cons: "Some of the bread and croissants were not really fresh. Fresh fruits were also very limited and not properly ripened."

Pros: "the trip coming and going from Kuwait was very pleasant"

The plane was clean and comfortable . I thought the handling of food and drinks was very good. The food was good and there were ample servings for inflight food. I liked the wide selection of movies to watch and I liked the way that we could see our flight from a camera under the plane. That was a first for me and I thought it was interesting to view the monitor from time to time."
Pros: "the Boarding at ATL airport was catastrophe!!!!!!"

Pros: "Friendly staff good service."
Cons: "The grill chicken served for dinner was cold."
Pros: "There were plenty of entertainment options."
Cons: "The flight was cramped with no room to get comfortable. The crew was concerened with it being an overnight flight and rushed through service so that the lights could be turned off on the cabin. They ran out of a food option and forced a selection on everyone in the back of the plane. The person sitting next to me even had a dietary restriction and her meal had been given to another passenger. The boarding process was a mess without clear directions from the staff, it was a giant mob trying to force its way onto a plane."
Cons: "I cannot begin to describe the plethora of issues I had with TK following the military coup. Aside from not answering emails or phones for days, even after getting in touch with someone the instructions I received were apparently only to waste my time because in the following correspondence it became clear they never intended on issuing a refund. I am a Military service member and was not authorized to take the flight I had booked, so after explaining the circumstances and submitting the requested memo...no refund! I will advise all my people to steer clear from Turkish Airlines."
Pros: "Friendly crew excellent food"
Pros: "I liked the friendliness of the ticket person and all the flight attendants on both flights. The cabin was clean, the climate was not too hot or cold. The pilots were very good at their jobs. The food was good."
Cons: "I didn't like having to disembark the plane in Istanbul while it was on the Tarmac nor get back on the plane while it was on the Tarmac."
Pros: "The seats were a normal size for an international flight. Everyone got a blanket, pillow, earphones and eye mask in their seat, all of which were necessary for the 11-hour flight. There were a lot of great movies to choose from, as well!"
Cons: "The bathroom garbage cans got full very early on in the flight, making it uncomfortable to use them. The stewardesses were friendly, but it was difficult to understand their English and the pilot's English (and I teach ESL). They, in turn, had a difficult time understanding me when I spoke to them in very slow, clear English."
Pros: "I know it has been some time for me to fly but I once did often I think your entertainment way and options were the best I have ever had the privalage to be on, It was great to fly with you."
Pros: "Flight was smoothe, Crew was awesome, hotel was great."

Pros: "Very polite and helpful crew. Nice selection of movies in-flight"
Pros: "There was nothing really special or to write home about on this particular Lufthansa flight: it got us there safely and ahead of schedule, albeit, uncomfortably (seats were extremely thin and uncomfortable) and the pitch/distance between seat rows was extremely short & cramped.."
Cons: "Seats could have been more comfortable; they were extremely thin and uncomfortable--and airline could give more legroom/pitch between seats."
Pros: "Great staff and smooth on time flight"
Cons: "Small plane"
Cons: "Great experience."
Cons: "Very professional, helpful and friendly. Clean, great ride, smooth landing."
Pros: "International flights are always the best! You’re treated like you’re sitting in first class!"
Cons: "I packed a SOLID body butter that was brand new. I thought that because it was NOT a liquid but a SOLID it would be okay. Wrong! I took every precaution and even called prior to packing. I didn’t think this would be a problem. So, out it went! My SOLID deodorant was fine, though."
Pros: "Crew was great! Food was good! Boarding was fast and organized!"
Pros: "I have never been treated so poorly by counter people in my life!"
Cons: "After 2 hour delay, the flight was cancelled. NO ONE helped to find another flight. After waiting in line for 2 hours, the ticket agent handed me a card and said I had to call the 800 number. The person on the phone said I had to talk to ticket agent to go standby on a flight to Munich and the ticket agent told me I had to call. I was caught in a loop and no one helped. Then when it became apparent I wasn't getting out that night I was informed that there were no hotel vouchers and I would have to find my own hotel! After searching for an hour for a hotel (all were sold out in Boston) I called a friend who lives outside of Boston. No one gave me a taxi voucher because it was not to a hotel. LUFTHANSA customer service is the WORST!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and attent ive"
Cons: "Delay cause sings uS to miSs oUr fliGh? ENT.ert.ainmrt wasn't good eitHer and way to cramped even for coach on that long of a fligh"

Pros: "Once again, the in-flight crew was excellent."
Cons: "The Frankfort airport is a nightmare. They have loooooooong gateways, so when I Finally got through security FOR THE THIRD TIME, it’s a 10 minute, speed-walk to the gate. Again, a flight delay was the only thing that made the connection possible. I made it to the gate with 3 minutes to spare, so no time for the bathroom, no time to get lunch or even a bottle of water, no time period. And at the end of it all, my bag is lost."
Pros: "I fly transatlantic often, and I've flown Lufthansa several times before. During the flight I was thinking this was literally the best transatlantic flight I've ever had, and if I can make it work with my schedule and cost constraints I'm going to fly Lufthansa every time. I never really had a 'favorite' airline before, but I do now--Lufthansa. I should have captured the economy classes crews names, but it was 414 from Munich to Dulles on 25 May--they were truly outstanding."
Cons: "My flight schedule changed after I bought the ticket, which resulted in paying for the hotel for the extra night and using one more PTO day."
Cons: "I didnt get my reserved seats, and the seats were not most comfortable compared toothed airlines."
Pros: "1. I like the plane and the comfort of my seat. 2. I was pleased to find my luggage in Athens as Lufthansa was the only airline that in the past twice had misplaced my luggage and had to wait for one day to get them. 3. The flight arrived at the scheduled time and going through the airport , security to my connection was especially easy. 4. The sandwiches also at the airport were tasty."
Cons: "1, It isn't really a 100% complaint because I'm also responsible. As I was waiting for the dinner to be served it took more time and I felt asleep watching a bad movie, so I missed dinner when I finally woke up. This is the reason I have no opinion about the food. My sole complaint is about the general practice in all airlines that they serve first the slim minority that does not eat meat. Democracy means that the majority should be served first. Unless the airlines consider the vegetarians as some kind of sick people! 2. The crew didn't offered us enough liquids during the flight and the excuse that they didn't wish to disturb our sleep is too lame."
Pros: "They were nice"
Cons: "They were good"
Pros: "All airplane was on time"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good variety entertainment"
Cons: "Every time LH lands in Bangalore, the priority bags are never given priority. Secondly, my bags were opened and items from inside the bag were taken, like pants and shoes. The luggage strap around the bag was removed and stolen."
Cons: "Didn't happen yet."
Pros: "The cabin crew was excellent all around, really made the experience a pleasure. Also very helpful when I couldn't locate my wallet as I was preparing to deplane, both in terms of helping me look and explaining what I could do if it didn't turn up (eventually it did, before I disembarked)."
Cons: "The seats, while relatively comfortable on their own, were really jammed in; it felt cramped even as a smaller adult. And the boarding process in Washington seemed to take a very long time."

Cons: "The seats are too close together like most airlines but for a long flight this is very uncomfortable"
Pros: "The lady at the check-in at the Atlanta airport was extremely nice and extremely helpful"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly"
Cons: "I had ordered a child meal but it was not available. Also they did not have a child pack for my son."
Pros: "No entertailment because of the short flight, but free beer or wine was nice and a sandwich!"
Pros: "First time flying Lufthansa and I had a comfortable and enjoyable experience. The food was quite good and the selection and quality of entertainment was excellent. Best of all, there was plenty of legroom for a long international flight!"
Pros: "Everything except the entertainment"
Cons: "The headphone jack didn't work. It priduced some sound, so it might fool a tchnician doing a quick check. But voices and most of the sound track garbled and muted."
Pros: "Boarding was fast Crew was polite"
Cons: "There was no entertainment on board!!!!!!"
Cons: "I called the airline and paid for a specific ticket so I could have an aisle seat. They confirmed it was an aisle but Inhad 30F which is a window seat! I'll be calling Lufthansa for a refund. p"
Pros: "Once I got on the plane, everything was fine and easy. The airport drove me crazy and the lack of confirmation on my ticket was more than annoying."
Cons: "The late notification of a change in gate number and the lack of confirmation that I had a reserved seat on the flight. I was kept in suspense right up to the minute I boarded the aircraft. Very nerve wracking."
Pros: "Very nice"
Pros: "Boarding and departure+arrival times were excellent. Baggage was handled well, arrived without damage. Much better marks here than AirFrance."
Cons: "Food was quite poor, much worse than KLM or Delta... no match for AirFrance,thoug I'd rather get poor food and arrive on time and without getting stranded at CDG. Also, Neither on-board wifi, nor the entertainment touchscreen worked, not at all. You'd be well advised to bring your own iPad... :-))"
Cons: "Had to pay to check in one nag"
Pros: "Food was better than American or Delta."
Cons: "Had a screaming baby during the whole flight. Not Lufthansa's fault though."
Pros: "Surprised by so many entertainment options!"
Pros: "If you can afford to fly business class, it is definitely worth the extra money. The flight, the crew, the comfort we're superb!"
Pros: "Staff was very professional, the plain was new and clean. Food and drinks were also good."
Cons: "Food was salty, couldn't eat it. No replacement available Luggage disembarkment took forever"
Pros: "Service was great."
Cons: "Boarding process is a bit chaotic since they dont go by group, but by class. Seats in Business class are no different than economy."
Pros: "Excellent service all around"
Cons: "They don't board with any structure. It is a big free for all."
Pros: "Legroom and arm room, good light overhead in premium economy. Bilingual crew friendly and efficient."

Cons: "Food options and space"

Cons: "flight was cancelled a few hours before with no explanation!"
Pros: "One crew refused to give food although there was"
Cons: "4 drunk passengers made flight unbearable"

Cons: "The armrests did not fully extend, making the seat incredibly uncomfortable for my husband...the flight crew did not seem to care..."
Pros: "Nothing to like at all."
Cons: "There is no food even water at international flight!!! Terrible service."
Pros: "The pilot kept us in the terminal when he found out that we were delayed due to fog in London. I appreciated waiting in a more comfortable, open space rather than on the plane. I was also impressed with how the controllers and schedulers in London handled the delays so that I had not problem making my connection. And as things turned out, the second leg of the trip went so well that we reached our destination on time despite a one-hour delay."
Cons: "I'd like to see British Airways consider at the very least giving their customers a cup of coffee or tea on a 4-hour flight."
Pros: "We made very good time. Crew members were courteous and helpful. Check in was very easy. ."
Cons: "Uncomfortable and tight seating on the 787. No room to walk around on 7 + hour trip."
Pros: "Comfort of the journey, take off and landing were expertly done, approach was just the right speed and contact was soft but firm. Crew were pleasant enough. One of them felt he always had to show his authority with a firm voice, not necessary but maybe that’s how he speaks. In general no problems"
Cons: "I’m quite disappointed to have to buy food on an airline of British airways stature. My only gripe with whole day."
Pros: "Excellent crew and good food."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment was good."
Cons: "Food choices were not good-cold creme cheese tomato sandwich for breakfast and horrible curry chicken for dinner. Staff was young and seemed somewhat inexperienced. They were constantly rushing and couldn’t keep up with servicing customers. When we looked at a make steward to let him know that we were finished with our trays, his response was “give me a second!” Unacceptable customer service!!!"
Pros: "Landing and disembarking"
Cons: "Paying $275 to upgrade and experiencing one of worst flights and service I’ve travelled. No water supply for hot beverages, wash hands or brush teeth during eight hour international flight, not given special diet meal requested as crew unable to locate it, Entertainment monitor not working or housed in seat back correctly to adjust angle, remote handset buttons barely working to watch or make selections, unable to call cabin crew who did not visit through cabin for approximately two and half hours as ‘assumed most passengers were sleeping’, no wine choice only Sauvignon blanc and I wanted Chardonnay so had nothing. Breakfast ‘special diet request’ meal was cold hard bagel with colourful lump of cream cheese, which seemed to be what everyone else had. No orange juice, grapefruit that can’t take medication with, so had nothing to drink except allotted splash of water into small paper cup. Dreadful journey"
Cons: "Very bad smell, pass landing"
Pros: "I remember time when BA was an example other airlines (professional crew, food on board, etc)... Seats are still better than so called cheap lines and more spacious aircraft. Baggage policy quite generous (however expensive)."
Cons: "Well, I believe that now British Airways reach a level of Ryanair... Prices haven't changed thou, still medium range. Customer service very low, no on-board food anymore (even in quite a long haul flights), ridiculous "priority" system, dated planes..."
Pros: "There was NO water in a 4+ hour flight unless you pay!!"
Cons: "Non of the three bottles I asked for on duty free were onboard It is apauling that food & drinks have to be bought in such a long flight including water!!!"
Cons: "Cancelled our flight and cost us a lot of money. Then Rebooked us through another carrier and we waited and they wouldn’t take us, said there was only two seats left and we would have to wait until the next evening for another carrier. Wow just terrible service. We drove five hours for this. I’m afraid British Airways is too big of a company and doesn’t really care!"
Pros: "The ride was very smooth! Pilot did a great job!"
Cons: "The leg room and ovearall size was very small. My husband couldn't fit his knees in ."
Pros: "Just boarding"
Cons: "I am sorry to say but everything on the flight tonight was poor - from the bad food to warm drink and no entertainment and also the personnel. They looked liked working for cheap hotel. Very poorly managed."
Cons: "Everything was for sale"
Pros: "Easy boarding, friendly crew."
Cons: "Food and Entertainment"
Pros: "The flight attendants were polite and efficient. The flights were on time. Easy check-in."
Cons: "Our return trip was "cancelled"__ However, we were bumped and rescheduled to fly Sunday and given no options. So, the return flights definitely put a damper on our overall experience with flying BA. Hopefully, customer service will do the right thing in the end."
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "We got delayed for 2h. Also,I traveled with BA before and I received an eye sleeping mask and a thooth brush, but this time those items were not provided. The blanket was smelling quite bad."
Pros: "Entertainment system worked well and had good selection of movies"
Cons: "Armrests didn't go up which is a problem with a toddler needing to sleep. Seat was broken so that pressure would make it lean back. Left over an hour late."
Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "I had a flight from Atlanta to London with a connection flight to fly to Istanbul. The first flight was fine and smooth but the second was just terrible. Upon buying and resorting to British Airwaya, it wasn't mentioned anywhere that the second flight plans do not offer complimentary soft drinks or snacks for the three hour flight after a 6 hour layover. Assuming my flight was going to feed, I didn't eat a whole lot at the airport so I didn't have to spend too much money. I declined the cart the first go around and didn't seem any too interested or sure what some of the options were. I lasted as long as I could and gave in and pulled out my credit card (not accepting cash is another disappointment because my Turkish bank account was charged by pounds) but there was nothing but one choice left and it didn't sit well in my stomach."
Pros: "The flight to London was fine."
Pros: "I liked the fact that the customer service on board was pretty spectacular & very clean bathrooms."
Cons: "It was extremely warm throughout the flight and the seats weren’t too comfortable."
Cons: "Was one hour and 45 minutes late leaving Atlanta for London."
Pros: "Great plane - new and quiet"
Cons: "Cramped in the back. Ridiculously so"
Cons: "I didn't get to go. The Turks said I couldn't even change planes in Istanbul without a visa -- and they weren't issuing any."
Pros: "Was notified many times about flight delay, but was on time. Ground personnel very congenial!"
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable, food and coffee almost inedible! Layover in Heathrow nearly killed me after overnight flight (5 hrs. of chaotically organized airport). Unhelpful and unnecessarily officious personnel in Heathrow."
Pros: "Nothing. Zero. Zilch."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours due to a mechanical issue, per pilot before takeoff. SOMETHING happened & we were all tossed about the cabin of the plane. When it was all said & done, 1 flight attendant had a broken nose, 1 had a concussion, I hit my head in 2 spots, and a little boy hit his head & threw up. I am not a dramatic person, but I've never been on a plane & thought I was going to die – until this flight. Emergency landing in St. Louis instead of Chicago. The EMT crew on the ground? Felt like amateur hour. I have photos to back these events up."
Pros: "i love wverything"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff."
Cons: "Father with two young daughters was presented at checkin with separated seats, so we had to request others to trade with us once we were on the plane. Which they happily did. I was not able to reserve seats online for some reason; therefore the staff at check in should know that they should try to reserve three seats together for a parent traveling with two pre-teen kids."
Pros: "Nothing special at al!"
Cons: "International flights never charge baggage fees for 2nd bag. Older aircraft. Mediacore friendly by the crew. They cancelled my return flight cost me lots of head aches and money!"
Pros: "flight was relatively empty, and did not delay too much."
Cons: "No entertainment whatsoever. Meal is only a muffin or a cake of some sort. Waited way too long to disembark the plane."
Pros: "There was something to like?"
Cons: "This was a four hour international flight from London to Istanbul. There was no in-flight entertainment system of any kind, not even audio, and there was no free food or drinks. Not even a bag of peanuts or a soda. Everything had to be paid for. And if you did wanted to purchase something, it took forever since passengers had to whip out a credit card. Cash not allowed. I have never been on an international flight that made you pay for food and drinks. When I inquired why, the reason given was that this was a "short-haul international flight". Oh, I see. British Airways is now a discount airline."
Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "Service, crew, departure delay, dated vehicle"
Pros: "The friendly staff and the entertainment (movies) made my first international flight very enjoyable!"
Cons: "I paid $100 to sit my the person I was traveling with. I think that's overkill!"
Pros: "Check in staff was friendly, and flight attendants nice. Also liked not having to pay for the 2 servings of wine I had."
Cons: "Food was very average and was served really late, after midnight local time. Special order meals were delivered to people and then there was a long gap before everyone's else's was served. btrzkfast very ordinary, but tea was decent"
Pros: "The flight was half full"
Cons: "The plane was half comfortable. We were charged for everything. Water, etc."
Pros: "crew attention and politeness"
Cons: "the food variety"
Pros: "Nothing really. Except the general BA at T5 which is fine"
Cons: "Everything about the flight. From low quality, poor breakfast on Club cabin to poor service and no entertainment on the flight. It is not certainly value for money for traveling Club."
Pros: "I got this 'heap ti"kept from airfare.com and there was no difference to other passengers."
Cons: "Why do I have to pay for food in an international flight? Ridiculous."
Pros: "They blackmailed my daughter pay an additional $940.00 for a return flight bcus here flight was over 90 days."
Cons: "Purchase was allowed by Kayak and BA. This should not have taken place."
Pros: "Just generally BA. Used to be the prime airline to travel with"
Cons: "No entertainment on the flight. No complimentary food or drink for 4 hrs flight and charging the customers a lot of money. not really worth the money."
Pros: "Entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "Food was okay"
Cons: "Crew was pretty unfriendly! There was no food served and no in-flight entertainment although the flight was 4 hours! Worst airline I have been so far! They need to learn alot from other airlines such as American Airways or Turkish Airlines!"
