Pros: "on time"
Cons: "We couldn't land in Narita due to bad weather, so we did emergency landing to Haneda to refuel and go back to Narita. But after we got off in Narita, the immigration is chaos. Nobody arranging it and people just going wild, nobody knows where the line should begin. We spent 2 hours plus in the imigration line.

Of course there was a problem with my reservation that they had never seen before which manifested itself by them not being able to print my boarding pass. They called Tokyo and were told that they had never seen my problem before either. Anyway, the ticketing supervisor stayed with me for 45 minutes until they could over come the problem.

Pros: "Great staff"
Pros: "The crew was nice and organized, polite, professionals, the airplan was clean. flight was on time too."
Cons: "The food did not include varieties, may be is good for korean people but not good for others, the dishes were plastics and foils which are not good for human consumption after being heated. I missed my flight from seoul to saigon because there was two flights with similar time, one with korea and the other with vietnam air, both with similar time but both are with different concourses , then , the ticket did not indicate the gate number , then the airport information operator directed me to the wrong gate resulting in missing my flight to saigon and being subject to penalties which all are not my mistakes. Please fix your system"

Pros: "All the flight attendants were very nice and they had amazing attitudes--especially on my flight going TO Hawai'i. All the flight attendants had smiles on their faces and they were always ready and willing to assist passengers. Every time they delivered something, they were always smiling; even when passengers asked for more assistance, the flight attendants delivered service with a smile!! Amazing!! This was my first time flying Korean Air, but it will not be my last!! My experience with Korean Air was fantastic!! I will definitely fly Korean Air again!! Thank you!!"
Pros: "Seats more comfortable than other planes"
Cons: "Staff were oddly unfriendly and I was awakened twice"
Pros: "Everything was so good.food, service, crew, entertainments etc."
Cons: "I'm not happy about the condition of my luggage. When I received my luggage, the latch to close my suitcase was badly damaged. Half of one of the latches was broken off! My suitcase was not locked in the first place so there was no reason for anyone to be so forceful with it."
Pros: "I had a safe flight"
Cons: "The food selection was awful,and the crew was rude about altering if you didn't like what was available"
Pros: "I loved the aircraft and the great service. They offered great food and the service was fast"
Cons: "Everything ok"
Pros: "I took me to my destination."
Cons: "I bought a Korean Air flight but it was a flight with another airline Jin Air. I felt ripped off, i could have bought the same flight for a whole lot cheaper. Well, i learned another lesson about business and how bigger airline uses their name to sell flights. Never again for me."
Pros: "Nice in-flight movie options. Friendly staff. Plenty to drink and enough to eat."
Cons: "Meal was chicken and rice and plenty to drink: water, coffee, soda. There was also pickled vegetables and tofu, but I was satisfied not eating those. Numerous intermittent announcements: [The usual preflight safety briefing, the mid-flight seat-belt and arrival eta announcements, the mid-flight turbulence and temperature comments, the customs-forms hand-outs, the duty-free inflight shopping opportunity announcement, the eventual apologetic conclusion of the duty-free, inflight shopping opportunity] together spoiled my calculated chance of finishing a short movie."
Pros: "Lots of room, most space I have ever seen in an economy class. Nice attendants and good food."
Cons: "Every Korean flight I had this trip was delayed. Created problems when Korean Air gives you 1 hour to transfer at Incheon. When transferring, all passengers need to go through security again and there are long lines. Airport attendants were not nice and made us ask people to cut in line. After running through the airport, we then find out the plane was delayed an hour to accommodate other delayed connections! They could have told us this before but only rushed us off."
Pros: "Air Korea continued to be awesome"
Cons: "Still no laptop plug"
Pros: "crew, entertainment, overall a great flight(s)"
Cons: "air so dry in cabin"
Pros: "KA broke handle in my luggage and it was difficult to make them pay back some reasonable amount of money for that (my suitcase was just one year old) but at the end they did a lot. Love their metal cutlery instead of plastic ones. It's not only better to eat with them but also better for environment."
Pros: "Boarding was like any other airline, but once you got on the plane everything was at least a step above the US Air flight I just got off of."
Pros: "While I slept for part of the flight they placed a note telling me that they let me sleep and didn't want to disturb me."

Pros: "Food n staffing"
Pros: "I loved the caring & attentiveness of all the flight attendants, the individual videos for each seat, the spaciousness between seats, & the complimentary wine service. My flying experience in Coach felt like other carriers First Class. Can't wait to fly again."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful. I appreciate how attentive they are."
Cons: "Kids in business class. Do not like that. They're loud and needy. I pay a lot to feel relaxed and enjoy peace. Need more tv shows and better ones. Censoring movies made it hard to understand certain parts."
Pros: "After requesting a special meal, the flight attendants made absolutely sure of my identity before passing the meal to me (which was GREAT!). Having the pillow, blanket and headphones ready in place when boarding was considerate of Korean Air. Of course, no matter what, having to ask people to accommodate the requests to use the lavatory got old really fast (I had a window seat) but it's what had to happen. Overall, for such a long flight, the airline is a pleasant one with which to fly."
Pros: "Crew service is excellent!"

Cons: "The food wasn’t very good and the quantity of the snack meager. Worse, the crew refused to give a second roll to our 12 year old even which means that either they only have one for each passenger (and every passenger had theirs) or the crew are parsimonious."

Pros: "free movies"
Cons: "somehow new seat of this aircraft is very uncomfortable with my hip. It was kind of painful to sit tight for long period. I think my body likes older seat which actually reclining toward behind other guests. or I guess maybe I just get older. I asked 2 beer cans but completely ignored. maybe I was too shy."

Pros: "leg room!"
Cons: "Check in process was horrible at TKS, extremely unknowledgeable gate agents, took 6 people and 1.5 hours to check and pay for bags."
Cons: "Queued up with other Star Gold etc. customers (they have 2 queues, one for Diamond and one for other statuses). There's a sign on a pole. People queue up, then they swivel the pole round so I'm in the wrong queue now. Try to move, lose place in queue, they swivel it back the way it was... Good airline but boarding especially for domestic is disorganised with poor signage etc."

Cons: "No food available only drinks"
Pros: "Staff are very attentive and helpful; the entertainment system is top class"
Cons: "On boarding, the markers for "business" and "diamond" class are only distinguished by a (low) signpost at the head of the queue. If you're further back or not so tall s difficult to see which queue is correct... quite a few people (not me fortunately!) got turned away because they don't know ANA's boarding system. Also a problem with boarding at HND where the overhead monitors show BIz but not First/Diamond. As some other reviews pointed out, BBC news just didn't work. CNN worked intermittently."
Pros: "everything was so smooth!!"
Cons: "entertainment : wish there were more japanese comedies!!"
Pros: "Great movies!!"

Pros: "On March 4, my wife and I made a flight from New York to Sydney with a transfer in Doha, Qatar. We flew the Qatar airline business class. Everything was great despite a very large flight. New plane, very clean. Wide comfortable seats turning into a large comfortable bed. Great menu and good wine list. All staff are professionally trained and very friendly. All this made this flight very comfortable and we were not tired."
Pros: "The aircraft was comfortable and the electronic amenities were decent and needs improvement"
Cons: "Free WiFi and Dancing boys"
Pros: "Attentive and friendly crew, leg room"

Pros: "i like the service of qa. its amazing."
Cons: "none at all"
Pros: "Smoth flight"
Cons: "Narrow 2x2 sleeper seats are really narrow and feel much too close to one another. ."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and polite. The flights were on time, and the entertainment options were good. The Doha airport is quite nice, with many eating and retail options. although everything is very expensive, even by airport standards."
Cons: "My wife and I personally don't mind a selection that leans heavily toward Indian food, but I imagine others will not. The main courses were mediocre and the "sandwich" offered between meals on the 13+ hour flight was cold, soggy and inedible. The seats on our A350 were hard and not very comfortable, and the recline function was difficult to operate. Security at the Doha airport was confusing. We had to go through 3 separate checkpoints for our transfer, each with different rules and procedures. The final check at our departure gate was the worst, with impatient officials giving hurried instructions in heavily-accented English, and scolding if passengers didn't understand. I was sent back through a second time to remove my camera from the bag (and to be scolded by the agent), and was patted down a second time coming back through the x-ray, which had green-lighted me both times. It made me wonder if this was a reaction to the extra scrutiny that Arab passengers receive from our airport security in the USA."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth; Plane was clean; Flight departed on time;"
Cons: "Flight arrived late for no obvious reason; Crew was good but not as good as what I have experienced in the past with Qatar and other airlines"

Pros: "I enjoyed my flight,it was a smooth trip from Doha to Manila, the Cabin Crew received adequate training on taking care of people, as a professional nurse who is use to taking care of others ,I see someone else looking after me and I really appreciate their efforts. Shortly before we landed at Manila, we were informed that in order to meet international flight rules and regulations that insecticide will be sprayed we were advised to cover our nose,as a medical personnel I see it not good cos it can trigger an Asthmatic attack in a known asthmatic patient ,it was a lovely journey"

Pros: "Just that the food is quite small but the variety is OK."
Pros: "The staff are great, the food is good."

Cons: "No internet. Limited movie options."
Pros: "Flight was without any hitches, could have done better with boarding after the previous mishap of a 5 hour delayed flight and being forced to stay in Doha for a night which put everyone's schedules off by a day. Still, I would book another flight with Qatar airways for their efforts and overall good service."

Pros: "Good, newer wide body aircraft. Good service. No hassles, really. Would fly again. Overall good experience."
Cons: "Newest seating arrangement in 777 300 ER just too crammed. Used to be better. Nothing special about this flight, was expecting a little more space, a little less crowded, a bit better service. But my flight was short hop from BKK to HAN, last leg of flight originating in Doha."
Cons: "I had booked the Amaya lounge for the 3,5 hours stop over. It cost $50+ and was so not worth it! Bad food and uncomfortable chairs plus it was really crowded! Next time I'll just go to a cafe! No seats at the gate when I got there. Slooow boarding!"
Pros: "The service given from the crew from the moment i checked in was amazing. The flight was smooth and went well. The music and movie selection could be a little bit better. The food was good, but the portion was small and it feels limited. But overall it was amazing experience considering i got a really good price for this flight! Thank you, Qatar."
Cons: "The food portion was small and feels like during the flight the food or i might say snack was limited. The music and movies selection needs a little update and upgrade. I was pretty upset that from LA to Denpasar both the aircrafts didnt have wifi."

Cons: "Food was so so. I have had better airplane food. Boarding was not grouped by zones, so was a bit slower than usual."
Pros: "Entertainment and food were geat and a great distraction from the seating arrangement and the horrible leg area."
Cons: "Not having a chair leg in the middle of the leg area. being able to sit next to my partner instead of having us split up. If we bought two tickets at the same time we should have been able to sit together. Lastly the huge delay that caused us to miss are final flight."

Cons: "Not much to say."

I personally had to help the crew members to pick up the food trays because they were very limited and no entertainment at all which was really boring."
Cons: "I guess I can’t properly rate the flight because it was canceled and I ended up flying United. I will say that that flight was fine. I was disappointed that there were zero notifications telling me that my initial flight with Lufthansa was canceled. When I finally got through over the phone, I was booked for a flight that I couldn’t make and had to wait until the next day to start my trip."
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "A little too warm for me."
Pros: "Flight attendants we good"
Cons: "Business class seats were just regular seats without a 3rd person. Legroom bad and seats narrow. Not good value b"

Pros: "Great service!"
Pros: "This leg of light was good. Service on board was very good."
Cons: "no complaints."
Pros: "Boarding was very fast since we were traveling with Little ones. Food was good. Movie selection was good too."
Cons: "Waiting for flight take off, seats in the economy class not comfortable"
Cons: "This was the coldest flight I ever flew- the temperature was probably in the 50s. For 9 hours when even 3 blankets were not enough to keep us to a decent temperature. Also the crew was very cold and dismissive. They were very aggressive towards two other passengers."
Cons: "bad business class experience, requested assistance 2 but only one came that alsoafter so much hassel will never travel or recommend"
Pros: "My first flight overseas was wonderful. Almost never felt any turbulence and the crew was so friendly and courteous."
Cons: "Cramped seats in economy. Next time we'll definitely upgrade for more leg room."
Pros: "Food was just OK. Crew was nice."
Cons: "The München terminal by the gate has two antic wending machine that work only with cash. Nothing around once you pass security in that part of the terminal. Internet wasn't working either. Poor Germans, they lack ideas and money.... Then the plane had issues, we left 2 hours late because some Computer on board malfunctioned. Many people lost the connecting flights. Overall, I will avoid this airport, and flight path in the future."
Pros: "I was very frustrated with the booking service and had to change my flight but was unable to. Very very terrible experience and I would not recommend kayak to anyone"
Cons: "Call me .food was not good. Had to leave breakfast half eaten. Worried if not spoiled because tasted freezer old."
Cons: "I had a short transit time in Munich (40 minutes). Munich website promises that this is possible and that gates are close to each other and if the first flight is late, then someone will help you to your next flight. My first flight was about 10 mins late. Although assistance was provided to people connecting to some of the other flights, no-one helped me with my connection. I asked two ground staff and was just told to make my own way to the next gate, which was not close. It was in a different terminal! After literally running through two terminals, I did not make it to the gate in time and had to wait for the following flight which got me home over three hours late. Lufthansa did give me a five euro meal voucher though (which doesn't buy very much in an airport cafe)."
Pros: "This was my first international flight, and also first on Lufthansa, and I was thoroughly impressed. We traveled with another couple who've flown internationally multiple times, but this was their first Lufthansa flight as well, and they said it's the best they'd had. The crew were all excellent, friendly, and accommodating. There was plenty of entertainment options, refreshments, and snacks. The food was very good-much better than I'd expected. I appreciated that there were pillows, blankets, and headphones readily available as well. I'll try to fly Lufthansa every chance I get when flying internationally."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and provided snacks even though the flight was short"
Cons: "This flight was good!"
Cons: "Flight may have been overbooked. Very confusing boarding/seating arrangements."
Pros: "Smooth and safe"
Cons: "Landed or parked in the maintenance section of the field; therefore we had to take a shuttle bus to a building where we board lite rail to our terminals. It was a distance away; I didn't like that at all. Expecially since we arrived late due to bad weather at Dallas metro."
Pros: "Entertainment options vastly expanded and improved Attentive staff Good check-in Decent boarding - some organisation of boarding by seat - prevents roadblocks by people trying to get to back while those in front are still putting their stuff away and blocking aisle."
Cons: "Given menus for a mediocre meal Booked window seat to sleep - given aisle at last minute when boarding Given drink then meal for overnight flight - meal would be nice - more time to sleep"
Cons: "I will never fly Lufthansa again anywhere"
Pros: "Crew was beyond standard. Very nice and friendly and always accommodating."
Cons: "They ran out of vegetarian meals."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly and welcoming and eager to help. The flight was comfortable and had nice accommodations."
Cons: "The breakfast meal was a little different."
Pros: "The flight attendant was helpful in confirming that my connection gate was C14."
Cons: "I only had 45 minutes between my Washington DC flight and my flight to Frankfurt and the flight to DC was delayed by a few minutes. Because the carry-on baggage had to be checked it took extra time to get my bag after the plane landed and my connecting gate was in terminal C (I arrived at terminal A), so I barely had enough time to get there, even when walking at full speed and not stopping once along the way. This was too short of a time between the two flights."
