Pros: "everything in suite class"
Cons: "Ran out of options for dinner and could not eat the macaroni cheese they had on offer, so got 2 small packets of nuts instead...international flight running out of food options? Pretty slack. A part of the interior wall fell off onto my foot upon take off and I had to hold it in place for a while until a hostess came....doesn’t give you the best feeling when the plane starts breaking on take off. One of the male stewards was appalling towards a young mum I sat next too...too the extent of giving her dirty looks because she spilled a bit of water on the seat and then told her she had to pack everything away she was using, including the baby wipes! I stepped in and told him how this was not ok and all other staff members were helpful and he was making this Mum upset. He should not be working for such a people friendly reputable airline! Maybe Jetstar instead! Was appalled at the entire flight to be honest!"
Pros: "Great service always smiling, flight on time, overall a great way to fly."
Pros: "Great service and very very comfy"
Pros: "Food, service"
Pros: "My neighbor"
Cons: "Fight war delayed and we got a security check upon arrival"
Cons: "First experience with Singapore where the crew made a negative impression. As soon as the plane pulled away from the terminal, crew members seemed rushed and frantic, literally running back and forth from Economy Premium to the galley gathering items. Approximately every 7-10 minutes, crew members would be running back and forth next to my seat with heavy foot steps, which would wake me up. I also noticed that certain crew members were shouting at passengers to get their attention instead of lowering themselves to be heard. One flight attendant almost spilled orange juice on me because she turned around too fast trying to serve drinks. I'm not sure if they were short-staffed, or if it was the influence of a certain crew boss, but something was definitely wrong."
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice, attentive and joyful!"
Cons: "Sitting in a middle seat. Was told at the jetway counter no aisle or window seats were available. I saw no fewer than 5 empty aisle seats in my area."
Cons: "Outdated Cabin Fit Out"
Pros: "The ability to pre-order food helped bud to intolerance of good types. Crew were helpful in getting us off the place first because they knew were were short on time for our connection."
Cons: "Delayed flight meant a stressful flight wondering if we would make our connection. Also the quality of the pilot on the intercom was poor - mumbled and unclear information."
Cons: "I took the 777 on my flight to Perth and the seats are so so different from the ones on A330. Don't bother with Business class if you are flying the A330. It's not worth the money."
Cons: "The flights were always late causing us to miss a connection. Also when purchasing the ticket I was not informed of two extra stops that only showed up when I checked in."
Pros: "All the crews were friendly and helpful!"
Cons: "I wanted to watch Hindi movies with subtitles..."
Pros: "The A380 is an amazing plane. The flight was smooth and the engine sounds were fairly low."
Cons: "Waiting on line to check in was more than a half hour although there were probably only 10 people ahead of me. Got a hard time on the weight of my carry-on being more than 7kg although I had to point out that my ticket allowed me two bags that were 23kg each - I had nothing to check. Eventually, when I pointed out that I could wear enough of the clothes from the carry on, they agreed to let me take it on. On board, the service was cold, bland and infrequent. The entertainment system lost sound perhaps 20 minutes into the flight."
Pros: "Excellent entertainment system even in economy with many movies including recent releases. Staff were friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Economy seating is very tight for someone who is tall -- very little legroom. Food in economy was OK."
Pros: "Can't think of. We have been using Singapore Air for years and they were good. However, our recent few flights with them have been disappointing (hence the need for this review) - there's nothing to be happy about."
Cons: "Writing on behalf of my wife. All staff that she met have sour face, perhaps to signal the passengers not to approach them? True enough, the cabin crew did not help her to place her bag in the luggage compartment; the cabin crew did not serve water when requested, and on second attempt, the cabin crew told her to request at the ground. The cabin crews she has encountered clearly expressed their unwillingness to serve with their face and action. Is this the new direction of Singaore Air? The entertainment system requires installation of an app, hence is practically useless since we do not have the app preinstalled in our device."
Pros: "Great service. Really friendly and polite. Lots of current movies and TV shows to watch and provided earbuds with adaptors. Made the experience a lot more pleasant."
Cons: "The seats can be laid bag pretty far and the people in front of me decided to recline for a majority of the 10 hour flight. I wish the chairs either didn't do this or the flight attendants would have said something. I didn't feel like I had the authority to do anything about it. Also it was so warm! I have no idea if there was a fan."
Cons: "Not enough vegetarian options. Food not that great for business class. Not enough English new release movies. Many were old. Could be improved."
Pros: "Clean aircraft. First rate and very attentive cabin staff. High Quality food and mid flight snacks. Its clear a lot of thought has gone into the making and running of this airline. My first experience and quite frankly I will fly SIA whenever possible."
Cons: "Cabin was to me a little warm during initial taxi at LAX. But not overly so."
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff, the food and overall the experience."
Cons: "That our bags weren't check in all the way to SEA"
Pros: "Such incredible staff. Always Willing to go above and beyond! I flew 17 hours with them and they made the flight a breeze. Great airline, will be flying with Singapore again"
Cons: "Really nothing. I loved flying with them."
Pros: "Reasonable price"
Cons: "Missed flight for medical reasons with 9 month old son, attempted to use remaining onward flight to Europe and return through Swiss which was refused! Most unreasonable, cheating me of my payment. I have since sought legal advice and contacted travel agent regarding, seems case law from several instances in my support. I had to pay thousands for new flight Austrian Air. Swiss thieved my money and I dont mind saying so. Unfair and unfair conduct. I am saving this letter for twitter to tell my friends of my disgust. I will be happy if this is sorted refunded immediately. A copy of these details and medical letter already provided to Jithendra from flight network (online travel agent)."
Pros: "service, good TV quality and good movie selection"
Cons: "sound quality with headphones was horrible"
Pros: "Customer service and food couldn't be better."
Cons: "cramped uncomfortable seats freezing cold in the plane"
Pros: "Flight Delhi to Singapore was uncomfortable. Flight to SFWas very comfortable. Roomy seats. Good service."
Cons: "Segment Delhi to Singapore."
Pros: "As usual, plane is in good shape and crew are well trained. Nothing wrong with all the basics, but Singapore Air has definitely lost its lustre."
Cons: "For heaven's sake, please don't announce a boarding procedure and then not follow it. If you want to have a free-for-all rugby scrum to get on the plane, so be it. But don't announce boarding by rows/groups and then not make even a lame attempt to adhere to it."
Pros: "It was safe, great staff and service! Entertainment was great and lots of options in food and beverage!"
Pros: "Food was exceptional"
Pros: "What did I like??? Um, EVERYTHING! First off I got a great price under $850 round trip to NRT from LAX was a steal! They let you check two large suit cases plus a carry on and a personal item. That all FREE!!! I travel pretty light but it was great to know they don't Nickle and dime you for bags or anything else for that matter. Staff looks amazing and treats you first class even when your in economy. They are so polite and really genuinely want to give you a above and beyond experience. And they over achieve at it! They meals are great and very satisfying. The planes are big and roomy even in economy seats. On our return flight we had a brand new plane which had a sleek touch screen monitor and controller. There mad tons of media available (articles, language games, games, movies, tv shows and more) with USB ports to charge devices on each seat. Plus 10inch personal monitors. Earbuds were included free of charge, aswell as socks toothbrush and tooth paste. They have is two big meals on our direct flight (awesome that they have direct flights). Plus, they offered free snacks too and gave us a full can of soda vs. a small cup. They come through several times offering coffee, tea, water and snacks. All free of charge. This was my first time flying Singapore Airlines and I loved it!!! I wish Everyone was this amazing! Norwegian Airlines was the opposite as far as charging for everything! Had to pay each stop for any luggage ($100 per checked bag). No meals free or charge. They wanted money for everything! And yea a skimpy sandwich was $9.00 :(."
Pros: "Singapore air has amongst the best service out of all airlines."
Pros: "The food. The nice crew members. The comfortability and service. The tech and entertainment available."
Pros: "Singapore airlines was awesome. I really enjoyed the hospitality of the cabin crew. They were very helpful and very eager to fill my needs. I will fly Singapore Airlines again without hesitation."
Cons: "Be more descriptive with which connecting flights we need to go on. We were not aware we we're supposed to get on Silk Air as one of our connecting flights, but we did eventually figure it out. It would really help to let us know your subsidiary companies."
Pros: "The crew was amazing!!"
Pros: "just like the flight to FRA the return was outstanding. The crew was extremely helpful and upbeat. I was in seat 31H (more leg room this time) and I was able to observe their interactions among themselves. I can truly say they enjoy their jobs."
Cons: "nothing this time"
Pros: "Nice aircraft - A380, so comfortable seats. Good staff and service. In flight entertainment is also very good."
Cons: "At Sydney airport the line for bag drop was longer than regular check in for economy. The ground staff waited till an hour before boarding to speed things up despite numerous passengers alerting them to this. The bag drop took 1 hour even though I had checked in online. The food was sub par because I had chosen a no seafood meal. Lamb chops without sauce as well as a very poor steak, again without any sauces."
Pros: "The food in coach was incredible!"
"my flight was pretty good specially food"
Pros: "Just a bad airline all together. They try to rip you off during transit by saying your luggage is over the weight limit and that you must pay for each additional kilograms."
Pros: "I love Emirates airlines and I only registered once for diabedics food I always get it ,the service always consistent but could be better ,aiming for excellence"
Cons: "I think staff could do better ,I think Emirates should aim for excellence I think they still need more efforts to reach excellence ,for me Emirates is number one airline world wide"
Pros: "the food is amazing"
Cons: "The crew"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "There is for a 4 hours flight just a small snack - just like a local flight. Then there is no bedding at all, just a blanket. Very poor for a F-class ticket."
Pros: "v cooperative crew & helpful"
Pros: "Very poor service, the crew members were not friendly. Low quality food."
Cons: "Emirates have a big name in the industry but their presentation was really disappointing."
Cons: "Old plane - ACE - very basic movie selection."
Pros: "Thank you"
Pros: "The seat was super comfortable"
Cons: "Overall great experience!!"
Pros: "Service & caring were superb"
Cons: "The snack was served not good and eatable. Emirates like one of leading air lines could have been served a better food. If it is cost cutting effort to serve a very basic snack like this, customers will be finding other air lines in the future."
Cons: "Emirates sent a notice that the flight was cancelled on a flight from SF to the Maldives - with about 6 hours notice. They put me on a plane two days later. Zero interest by the airline helping. We found a flight on Turkish but paid an extra $500. Zero interest in helping. Last time sensitive ever on Emirates."
Pros: "Nothing, it did not felt like an Emirates flight."
Cons: "The ICE on this flight is ancient, the seats are narrow, food was okay, nothing special. This is an old 777, which needs a refurbishment badly. Boarind experience is blah. After checking in you find yourself in a waiting hall with all the other passengers."
Pros: "Great comfort and entertainment some of the best I have ever had on a plane. Will definitely fly Emirates again."
Cons: "Not huge fan of boarding off a bus instead of the traditional way from the airport terminal. Food selection could be better but overall not bad."
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "No problems"
Cons: "No lounge. No notification that the lounge is closed. No compensation in a lounge replacement form just a shitty $40 voucher"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable"
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "On board crew personable and trying to do a good job. No one on the ground seems to have a clue."
Cons: "Boarding is shambolic - no signs, no announcements, no disciplined queuing system. Business class sears old-fashioned, not horizontal, uncomfortable. Impossible to get to first class lounge until the Emirates desk opens (we had a 5-hour wait before we could go to security as we couldn’t go through until the desk opened to take checked luggage. They appear unfamiliar with boarding passes on the phone - wanted paper ones."
Pros: "Food as requested: Great Entertainment:great Crew: Nice 16 hrs flight didn’t seem boring at all"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice"
Cons: "Usually, on the night flights you get a small toileteries kit with ear plugs, eye cover and a toothbrush. I kind of missed that..."
Cons: "Screens (for in-flight entertainment) kept freezing, not as much legroom as previous flights (BKK-DXB, DXB-SIN, NBO-DXB) on Emirates"
Pros: "The staff is always exceptional. Providing service for my every need."
Pros: "i not sure is emirate crew call switch working or not but many time i push that button but no one reply"
Cons: "crew service"
Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful. ICE entertainment onboard offered a wide veriety to choose from"
Cons: "The food was average"
Pros: "Caring crew"
Pros: "The food, drinks and entertainment we’re excellent. I also watched the staff caring for another passenger who was frequently summoning them for small requests but the staff was always patient and cheerful with him."
Pros: "The service provided by the crew is top notch. No one goes hungry on Emirates."
Cons: "The seat pitch is getting tight."
Pros: "We've flown asian airlines before, but Emirates is by far the best for international travel. Unfortunately we could not afford to upgrade to business, but because we let the Agent know it was our honeymoon he put my wife and I in a window and aisle seat so that we would have nobody between us. This gave us the extra room and comfort we needed. Also, they are a bit roomier than most planes with better leg room. They have a TON of free movies, tv shows, games, music and more on the plane. Food was decent for airplane food and they gave lots of snacks in between."
Pros: "It was a good flight and was able to rest a bit."
Cons: "Seat size is horrible. Will not be flying Emirates next time, instead will fly Qatar."
Pros: "Service is phenomenal, comfort of the seats and in flight entertainment was fab."
Cons: "Food was mediocre, but then again haven't ever had a wonderful meal on an aeroplane before!"
Pros: "the attention, the comfort, the large amount and options of movies, shows, entertainment channels; the food was good. and most of all the smooth flight and experienced pilots"
Cons: "Bad smell - probably somebody had vomited on a previous flight"
Cons: "The flight was delayed"
Pros: "There was enough leg room, good entertainment and food."
Pros: "When traveling overseas, I believe Emirates is by far one of the best airlines to travel with. From check-in to arrival the staff is extremely professional, polite and helpful. I will look to travel with Emirates every possibility I get."
Cons: "I think the meals can be simplified a little. Wasn't a big fan of the food, but I rarely eat on the plane so it didn't matter anyway."
Cons: "Entertainment system was older version than the flight to Dubai. Also less legroom in this model 777"
Pros: "good service"
Pros: "It was a great experience...nicest airline I've ever flown. The cabin crew was attentive and accommodating and being a vegetarian I found they had many options for my dietary requirements."
Pros: "leg room"
Cons: "the touch screen system was poor, limited movie choices, food taste, poor crew members etc"
Cons: "Having to go through twice as arrived in terminal C and departed terminal A What a waste of time"
Cons: "Not enough blockbuster action movies. I expected you would have the new Jason Borne flick for e.g."
Pros: "Overall good"
Cons: "No Tamil movies"
Pros: "I didnt mych like anything of this transit sector from colombo to maldives."
Cons: "First off, if im buying a ticket and traveling by myself and have an overnight 11hrs and 35min layover i expected some sort of accommodation given that the Maldivian airport is an outside one. Not only did they (Maldivian Emirates counter officer Ibrahim Shinad) refused to give me a lounge they said to get a room at a hotel was $400 US! Which is absurd. I had to sleep on metal chairs. They also closed most shops by 12am and by the time we landed and went through checkin it was 1130. Not a pleasant experience at all."
Cons: "My bag was lost and I was one of the many. Logistics at Heathrow were poorly executed to help people. It seems like they knew of the problem beforehand and didn't inform people effectively. I waited longer than necessary until I overheard that a lot of luggage didn't make it. I felt if they knew of the problem they should have gotten more people to help passengers and update them."
Pros: "See above. Great airline all around. We travel a lot and overall it is one of the two best in the world on almost all counts."
Cons: "For large number of passengers, boarding is impossibly slow. I don't understand why, after boarding the priority passengers, airline don't board the rest of us from the back of the plane to the front. Doing it the other way makes us stumble across the front seated passengers who are busy stowing their carry-ones. This causes a bottleneck in boarding. Also, there are too many checks on us, which also slows things down. Also, Emirates advertises: one carry-on item of less than 15 pounds. On this flight I would say that at least 75% of the passengers violated this with large and multiple carry-ons. This is unfair to those of us who try to go by the rules."
Pros: "Due to the corona19 virus I was not able to travel and the airline phone lines have been so busy that I’m not sure if I will be able to change my ticket."
Pros: "inflight staff are good but on the ground staff at airport need a great deal of improvement"
Cons: "Delayed arrival at Bangalore by more than 1 hour."
Pros: "Staff was very good"
Cons: "Plane was very warm"
Cons: "No food on board, very poor services but punctual"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Liked that you can see how far away and how much longer the flight was."
Cons: "Flights to be more on time"
Pros: "No delays."
Cons: "The entertainment monitors were SUPER laggy with response. Image quality wasn't great."
Cons: "Food quality, crew attitude, seats and entertainment ."
Pros: "Crew was very professional and efficient! Flight was fairly on time"
Cons: "Selection of movies was not the best I've experienced"
Pros: "There was nothing to like."
Cons: "The time to catch the next flight at Washington DC and Frankfert was too short. Walked about a mile and half between two gates. Request to change the time slot"
Pros: "Yes, everything was great"
Pros: "Crew was helpful, food was good"
Cons: "Seats could have been better"
Cons: "Retrieval of my luggage in Boston took over 45 minutes. What good is it having Global Entry when other passengers behind me in Customs are getting their bags first?!?!?! Make good on my inconvenience Luftwaff."
Pros: "I loves the pilot. He seemed to love his job and would make a couple funny jokes every time he spoke on the speakers and I never see that. Loved him and his landing was the only one not giving me any ear aches."
Cons: "Flight attendant missed couple lines of food and after letting them know instead of bringing the cart back they were tossing the entire plate on top of the head of the other passengers. One of them fell of right on one of the passengers. The second thing that irritates me is that one of the flight attendant approached me and was asking if I want chicken beef or pasta and I said chicken and she was like that is not an option in a very rude tone as of I am dumb or deaf of some sort. The other passengers also confirmed that they heard she did say that chicken was an option She could’ve nicely said it or apologized for telling an option that doesn’t exist. Instead she was giving an really bad attitude about it. Very irritated"
Pros: "I had to change my flight times three times, and each time they charged me less than 30 dollars (for taxes) and the wait times on the phone were super fast. It was shocking to not lose hundreds of dollars for life happening and needing to change my flight. AND!! I got a free upgrade to premium economy for free!"
Pros: "The facilities were really great!"
Cons: "The food - it was in VERY small quantity"
Pros: "Excellent service, food and entertainment"
Cons: "There was no entertainment in the flight , which was totallyfine for me as it was a short flight; I downloaded one magazine prior to my initial flight in SFO but was unable to access it."
Pros: "Crew was alright"
Cons: "Frankfurt Airport unfriendly and depressed as usual."
Pros: "Flew back last weekend in February. Transfer between plane from Barcelona in Frankfort (LH hub) to flight to Boston extremely chaotic. Masses of passengers all attempting to transfer to US bound flights. Insufficient staff from both Lufthansa and German border control to process or even organize the masses of people flying that day. Mob scene at transfer points. Not up to LH usual standards. Quite surprising as their passenger volume data should have alerted them to impending problems. Our flight was delayed over an hour for takeoff so USA bound connecting passengers (whose luggage was already on the planes) could be processed."
Cons: "Chaos and disorganization. Masses of connecting passengers unable to get to their flights anywhere near planned boarding time. Takeoffs delayed substantially."
Cons: "Always the same mess in Frankfurt to get into terminal Z, surely waited 30 minutes and almost lost connection. Food quality mediocre at best. Lost luggage, no Lufthansa representative around at baggage claim."
Pros: "Crew is very nice"
Cons: "Overcrowded and late flight"
Pros: "Flight attendants are great"
Cons: "I don't like the Star Alliance. Due to where I live and where I go, I have to use the United/Lufthansa combination. If I book with United, I can't select my Lufthansa seats until 24 hours before my flight. That means I end up in the back of the plane in the least desirable seats. If I book with Lufthansa, then I can't book my United seats. I have booked with United and paid for economy plus, then find as I board, the Lufthansa flight doesn't have economy plus."
Pros: "Good customer service"
Cons: "Not much leg room for 6'2" tall man like me"
Cons: "Plane delayed. Then when on board, pilot apologized due to the very warm cabin as "the auxilariary power unit isn't working." Then long delay because the baggage ground crew messed up and again according to the pilot "we apologize for the ground crew's failure to do their job properly and some baggage wasn't loaded properly." Once we landed we had like 20 minutes to go through security AGAIN and nearly missed the final flight to our Seattle destination. No mention of local time upon landing, no one at gate to direct lots of people rushing for connections."
Pros: "Service was great, meal was fantastic, seats were very comfortable, and the assortment of things they provided for entertainment were fantastic."
Cons: "Due to the weather and overbooking, they were not able to provide us with a flight for the same day. So we had to take a 4 hour train, which was also overbooked. We ended up standing up for 4 hours in a crowded train"
Pros: "While seat did give more leg room, we were still squashed. the guy next to me was a little on the heavy side and he could barely fit in the seat. We had no place to put our arms."
Cons: "we had to go down stairs to gain access to plane; they waited forever to board. supper selections were mediocre at best."
Pros: "Service was great, pilots were amazing no decompression pain in my ears."
Cons: "The flight was delayed in Warsaw for 1:30 hours"
Pros: "service, good quick flight"
Cons: "late departure in Frankfurt; high noise level of the Embraer plane;s engines; failing AC in the cabin"
Pros: "Lovely crew Plenty of alcohol if that is your thing Great movie selection on the return leg"
Cons: "Food was really disappointing- and I am not a picky eater TV screen did not work at my or a number of other passengers' seats on the flight over to Frankfurt"
Pros: "This was a fantastic flight -- the crew were very friendly and helpful, the legroom was great for "regular" economy class, and the flight was on time. The direct flight was so much nicer with young children than having connections. Would fly again any time."
Cons: "I really can't think of anything to complain about... the touch screen in my daughter's entertainment unit was a bit flaky, but that's about it."
Pros: "Lufthansa over Thomas Cook any day"
Cons: "Not a thing"
Pros: "Afterall I did get rice iso pasta."
Cons: "Cold. My chair was bumped because us was just a little bit broader in the gangway than the other chairs. (54c) There is no possebility fot ordering foid for me: diet is without grains at all and without sugar at all."
Pros: "Entertainment food and friendly crew! Alles gut!!!"
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "On time. Smoothe boarding. No poor food. In general a pleasantly uneventful flight."
Cons: "I checked my one small siitcase which easily fitsin the overhead binas the ticket agent told me it was a full flight and thus required. My hand luggage was my handbag. The flight was actually 2/3 full with plenty of empty seats and empty bin space. Most passengers had 2pieves of hand luggage. So I had to wait for luggage at the end of the flight when I could have easily stored it overhead."
Pros: "Both of our connecting flights were delayed thereby causing us to miss our final flight to LA. Now we are back in Munich where we started, waiting for a flight tomorrow."
Cons: "That we were told on the flight from Düsseldorf to Frankfort we would make our connecting and after running from Terminal A to Z, and seeing the plane on the Tarmac, we were told we were too late. And then the service associate at the Frankfort Lufthansa was incredibly rude, unhelpful and inaccurate."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2.5 hours, for a reason they never made clear after they let the passengers wait in line for 45 minutes to board. Once aboard, the Lufthansa planes were much much less comfortable than the Air Canada plane I took to Frankfurt. There is very little space and the seats are crammed together. The food they served was very bad, especially again in comparison with Air Canada. Once we arrived in Toronto, they made us wait nearly an hour before exiting the aircraft. It would seem that the Toronto airport would have to know we were coming and should have prepared accordingly, but apparently not. We sat, several passengers missed their connecting flights and were angry. I nearly missed my flight, having to run and race through customs (who are in no hurry)."
Cons: "No seating area at or near the gate we boarded at, and as boarding was delayed, many people ended up standing for some time because we did not wish to wander too far and then be late for boarding."
Cons: "I lost my flight because your oufol servise.at first i had an issue with my passport and i lost the flight so i booked another flight, and then the Your people confirmed me officialy on phone that i can use my ticket to come back to tlv but I couldn't do check in and this time on phone your people told me that i cant get it and they dont gave what to do with it so order another!!! Ticket at the last time and didnt make it to the holiday meal so i really disappointed and going to do something with it. That was turrible and i lost a lot of money!!!"
Pros: "Food & Entertainment were OK"
Cons: "My seat was 32C , me being disabled (wheelchair). My wife seat was 32 A and was DEFECTIVE. It could not be lowered towards the back, actually it has only the fixed position (all the way up). The lady from the seat before my wife's (31A) was lowering her seat ALL THE WAY. my wife protested, the crew tried unsuccessfully to adjust my wife's seat. Finally, instead of considering my condition and relocating us to some other seats (there were several free on this flight), the crew's lead stewardess (Friederich ?- I could not read the label, she kept it under her jacket) decided to upgrade that couple seats by moving them into the Business Class."
Pros: "Excellent and attentive crew, very good food/beverages. Lufthansa clearly stands out in international air travel."
Cons: "Boarding in Frankfurt was just short of a free for all."
Cons: "I paid for a reserved window seat so I could sleep. The passenger next to me was such a large man his arms and shoulder came way over into my seat space and I had to sit in an awkward and very uncomfortable position twisting my back for the entire flight. I cannot believe I paid extra to be in this position. My back still hurts from being in that position for 9 hours. I was miserable the entire way. And I paid extra for this discomfort. The big guy was plenty comfortable as he took up my seat space and slept well. Not happy at all with the flight and how Lufthansa crams people into seats."
Pros: "Great food options, blanket and pillow, and free movies was the best"
Cons: "Asked hor wheelchair assistance on the 3 connecting flight ... Never got one Weighing the carry on is ridiculous! Had to tortow away stuff because a couple pound over British allows up to 50 pounds on a carry on Asked to switch seats and hot terrible service Tried to get boarding pass 24 prior could not They lost my luggage got it 3 days later And other things that I was not happy about"
Pros: "Airline people all very professional, welcoming, courteous."
Cons: "Almost missed flight from heathrow to Newark. Previous flight was delayed. No airline personnel at arrival gate in heathrow. Finally had to run from the after the multiple security and passport checks, for about 15 minutes and we were the last to board, before they took off. Huge risk of missing the flight altogether."
Pros: "I love Lufthansa! It's my preferred carrier!"
Cons: "Aircraft not comfortable at all Crew was late (due to storm?), flight landed 30 min late"
"The seats in the Airbus flight from JFK to HEL were a bit uncomfortable. The layover in Helsinki airport was boring because there were no stores open in the terminal and there was almost nothing to do for 3 hours."
Pros: "My trip had two legs, Austin to Heathrow and Heathrow to Riyadh. The crew from Heathrow to Riyadh were great. I wish I could say the same about the crew from Austin to Heathrow."
Cons: "Overall, the flight was fine. My comments are relative to BA 1st class. At best, I would rate it in the middle of the business class flights I've flown on other airlines. There is nothing about the experience that is actually 1st class from a separate lounge, to boarding, to in flight meals. The seats on my planes were worse than Turkish Airlines Business class (among many others). Storage around the seat is also FAR worse than other airlines products,even in business class. I had taken the same flights in November and 95-98% of the entertainment options were the same. There were, maybe, 2 new movies and 2-3 new documentaries/TV shows. The in seat charger only worked on one leg. Several meal options were "sold out." Mediocre at best."
Cons: "No luggage and you had 4 hours! And 20 min late. Not good"
Pros: "All flights were on time. Boarding was well organized."
Cons: "Seats seem more cramped than comparable airlines. Food quality was poor. For one meal they didn't honor my special meal request (they did for the other meal, so they got the request). Flight attendants didn't check back in comfort of passengers."
Cons: "I could not check in online and BA is not available on the kiosk in the airport."
Pros: "The flight was 9hr each leg which is not baf of elder people. The food was fine. Entertainment was good. Austin to london flight was a little spacious and comfortable."
Cons: "You need to display gate information for connecting flight well in advance for thr elder people to get to the gate on time. We had the gate information displayed just 1 hour before departure. London to hyderabad flight was too cold. If the temperature was adjusted above 72 degrees it would have been appreciated. London to hyderabad flight was cramped up. Not at all spacious, my knees started to hurt after the flight."
Pros: "the crew was courteous and did their best to address problems that were beyond their control. alcoholic beverages are free."
Cons: "the light and most of the screen features did not work in our seats. I have encountered this problem before. this is a long and expensive flight for this stuff not to work. the food (special meal, asian vegetarian) was an awful, undistinguishable mush--poor presentation and dubious nutritional value"
Pros: "Friendly crew!"
Cons: "The plane was old and literally falling apart. Tray tables were disconnecting. Worst part: The flight was delayed for some baggage mixup. Then they did nothing proactively to help passengers with tight connections that were only tight bc the flight was so late."
Pros: "polite crew"
Cons: "Daylight savings. Wrong time. Missed flight. $450 to rebook new one-way. What a nightmare!"
Pros: "Excellent crew and good food."
Pros: "Food was probably best"
Cons: "1. Both legs of flights delayed 2. Need an update to their entertainment screens 3. Flights were on the hot side"
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Left on time and arrived early"
Cons: "Plane was very old and incredibly hot. Uncomfortable all around. Plane was gross and falling apart. Barely able to sleep due to heat. Turbulent the ENTIRE flight."

Cons: "The temperature in the cabin was a bit uncomfortable! It was rather hot and stuffy."
Pros: "Fed twice enroute"
Cons: "Did not hand out landing cards during the flight"
Pros: "direct flight and flight times"
Cons: "old plane no option to reserve seats. ended up with 4 random middle seats in the plane"
Cons: "There was a very large group of teenagers that were very loud the entire flight and disrespectful to crew and other passengers"
Pros: "We landed at Heathrow. It too 30 minutes to get off the plane. We parked on the tarmac and had to ride a shuttle to the terminal. There was no time to get through security and make our flight. WE have sat through on stand by for 2 flights. It is not promising that we will get to Paris as scheduled."
Cons: "No too happy right now."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful Plane was clean Food was hot"
Cons: "Plane was old. Small screen; limited relimited recline. No usb charger. Headphone jack loose. Seats not the best."
Cons: "They lost our bags. Many of us on board. And they didn’t give us tracking numbers to follow-up. Argh"
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Tiny space, uncomfortable seats, poor food"
Pros: "Hospitality from Crew members. Food."
Cons: "24 hrs delay for boarding this flight. No wheel chair provided though I booked."
Pros: "Great service as always"
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "- bad airplane - cramped - bad food and not even available on all legs"
Cons: "Broken tray, broken ear jack, very full flight and staff very rushed , skipping people re meals and drinks, definitely not as good a team as my outbound flight"
Pros: "The crew were great, boarding was very easy."
Cons: "The seats were narrow and breakfast was poor."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful."
Cons: "Food was not very good and meager."
Pros: "I have no complaints about the flight. It was a full flight but we tooked off in time and food/ drinks service was prompt. Unfortunately I left my phone on the flight and I have not got it back yet, a full week later."
Cons: "you have to pay for even complementary drinks"
Pros: "Flight crew and quality aircraft"
Cons: "Bumpy flight my frequent flyer number was omitted"
Pros: "Very attentive crew smooth flight"
Cons: "Poir food and cramped seats in economy"
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: "Liked club class seats!"
Cons: "If BA wants to do business in USA, perhaps they might consider that many international travelers use Global Entry and TSA precheck services. It's not nice showing up and taking your shoes off and fumbling through your carry on to consolidate liquids without being forewarned!"
Cons: "Never again will I fly with this airline! Had a horrible flight , food, service going from Chicago to Athens with portion of the plain empty and same thing again back."
Pros: "I liked how pleasant the staff were."
Cons: "I don't like bulk head seating."
Cons: "None of them reminded me of the fact that I need a transit visa for the UK (I mean, isn't it rediculous? I am just staying there for 5 hours). When I called in for cancellation at the airline, they told me to talk to my agent company Cheaptickets. Cheaptickets simply told me that I can't get any money back, and was extremely arrogant and impatient. Later (for a week I was trying to save this ticket by talking to the British Embassy to see if I can get the visa done and they are just "we can't help you") they told me that I can get a refund of like 30 SGD and they promised to send me an e-mail about it. They never ever did. I also tried to change the dates and the handling fee + fair difference was like 1200 SGD (are you joking?) they simply told me, prices fluctuate... Finally I went to the check in counter desperate. The staff even refused to talk to me about my situation because simply, "there is no BA ticket office in Singapore" and told me to call them. I said the office is closed, but they are like, yeah just call them. They swept me off like a moron. Extremely arrogant, impatient, insensitive. I paid 900 SGD for nothing and a whole week of anxiety and regret. I will never take this and I will never use Cheaptickets or Kayak anymore. So bad."
Pros: "We had a close connection so they moved us to the front of plane before landing to ensure we were the first off the plane."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled . And BA didn't manage it well for me . I am flying business . And have gold frequent flyer . And they offered cheap hotel by airport . Without even a shuttle to go to. I managed to go by myself . You have to stand on a line for an hour to get answers and another line with another 45 minutes to find solution. It's really bad ."
Pros: "Boarding was speedy and efficient in Austin. The plane (787-9) was very new and clean and felt like a premium experience."
Cons: "Our assigned crew member was short with customers and not to the usual friendly standard of other BA flights we have taken. The food (Veggie Lacto Ovo) was disappointing. We had no bread versus other passengers and had fruit for both desert and breakfast. A little imagination goes a long way, normally only the main is different but this experience was very underwhelming."
Cons: "I know this was economy but the seats are the tightest of any other airline. We were all practically on top of each other for a relatively long flight."
Cons: "My preferred Food selection unavailable"
Pros: "The crew were wonderful. Very nice folks. Made it difficult to complain about the terrible small seats"
Cons: "The Seats. We paid Extra for bulkhead. Nice legroom but horrible for trays. The seats were very small and uncomfortable. I will never fjy again for so many hours if I can't manage better seating."
Pros: "Movie/TV selection good Crew good"
Cons: "Food so so Need more.leg room ways"
Cons: "45 minutes late leaving Milan and had to sprint from the A gates in Terminal 5 to the C gates in Terminal 5 at Heathrow airport. Having to clear security again when you're transferring between flights in the same terminal is a joke. Surely there is a better way."
Pros: "That it got to my destination, eventually."
Cons: "The co-flight wasn't made clear to me. This was an American Airlines flight as is my return. Beyond the brand and gate confusion that resulted from this, the flight was delayed a couple hours and the plane looked like it hadn't been refurbished since the 70s."
Cons: "You can'tkeep a schedule."
Pros: "I liked the selection of movies."
Cons: "My seat would not recline back, it was broken and I had to sit up during the entire 8 hour flight from London to Dallas. I could not recline back at all in the seat, very uncomfortable."
Pros: "the window seats have no leg room. There is an entertainment box under every window seat so there is no room for your legs or small bag. I was in pain the last 7 hours of the flight due to leg cramps & spasms."
