Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The seat was very spacious"
Cons: "More space to put things"
Pros: "Crew was attentive and food was great. Japan air was a much better buy than any American company. I will look for Japan air for any flights I take in the future."
Cons: "Nothing. The experience for international economy was perfect."
Pros: "Crew and service were outstanding!"
Cons: "I would have liked the ebooks section of the entertainment options expanded. I love to read and that would have greatly distracted from the discomfort of having to sit so long in such cramped quarters."
Pros: "I had a nice exit row seat so that was nice"
Cons: "The food was not good and there also wasn’t enough of it which is really bizarre for an international flight that’s 14 hours long"
Pros: "The crew was absolutely amazing!"
Cons: "I think everything was amazing"
Pros: "even though I was in Economy class, the seat was comfortable, the food was good and the flight attendands were attentive and polite"
Pros: "the Level of service and the Japanese culture was evident at every moment of this flight. Our boarding process was delayed by almost an hour, and it felt like every 5-10 minutes we had an update as to what was going on and why, then passports were checked early, and service was top notch."
Cons: "In my perfect world, we would have updates way in advance if there are mechanical or airport issues but that is a slim to none chance. That is about it. Everything else was amazing!"
Pros: "Good efficiency for boarding an good in air entertainment"
Cons: "Delayed for an hour while already boarded"
Pros: "Sturdest were very kind"
Cons: "There was 2 choices for food either pork or chicken But when I asked for chicken they told us no more chicken Then they took the pork from the tray and I had to eat the rest without the main course. Also all the seats were taken by the people who bought the tickets directly from JAL,but there was few seats left all in the middle for people who purchase tickets from travel agents."
Pros: "everything. Flying on JAL was a fantastic experience. I'm not much for flying and was worried about the long flight, but I loved every minute of it. The flight attendance were so sweet and nice, the food was great. I would even go to Japan again just to fly with JAL!!!"
Pros: "The crew was excellent."
Cons: "We almost missed our flight to Kona, due to a malfunction in the plane from Chitose to Narita where we were disembarked. We were not aware or made aware of the distance from the domestic to international gate. We were told to take the 1830 pm flight to connect. We almost got a heart attack from running to our very far gate. I wish we were made aware that a shuttle bus would have been available to go to the international gate."

Pros: "Except for the tightly packed seating in economy class, everything else was beyond excellent. And even that was better than some US domestic flights. Large selection of Hollywood movies, gratis."
Cons: "I laughed at the Brace For Impact illustration on the safety card. It was not possible for me to double over with my arms under my thighs. The seat ahead was too close. The headphones produced tinny sound, and the two-pronged plug precluded using my own."
Pros: "The flight attendants were so nice and gave a gift to my wife and I when they found out we were traveling for our anniversary! Everyone was so respectful and the food service was awesome. We even flew economy and had a great time!"

Cons: "I don't recall having seen an option for a vegetarian dinner, either when I was booking my ticket or after I was on the plane. Perhaps I just missed that part of the booking process."
Pros: "fine food, the pilot handled a typhoon like a pro"
Pros: "My seat and my son's seat were booked apart on the both flights. So I requested the representatives at the check in counters at both airports to change our seats so that we could seat next each other. They were willing to help us out and we got the great seats. They had to ask other customers to help this out, too. In the airplanes, the flight attendants were extremely helpful and friendly when we asked them questions and favors, with nice smiles and calm quiet voices. No wonder the atmosphere was very relaxing and quiet during the both flights. The leg room was roomier and the facilities were newer. When I saw three pilots bowed to the customers before getting into the airplane, I felt they were very professional and ready for their jobs."
Cons: "Some food items were too Japanese. Dried Natto snack was especially weird for my son."
Pros: "The service was exceptional, friendly and polite. Food was good and entertainment selection was awesome."
Pros: "An airline that thinks about consumers and then delivers a premier experience. Fly no one else to or from Japan."
Pros: "the flight attendants were fantastic"
Pros: "There are just some wonderful travel things that happen perfectly, automatically, and with follow-up from the provider. The Japan Airlines flight from Tokyo Narita to Busan, Korea was one of those pleasant experiences. But then again, all of my Japan Airlines flights have been that way. I go out of my way to seek their flights!"
Pros: "The entertainment package was the best ever encountered with seemingly endless choices, keeping us happy all fight long. The seating seemed a bit crowded, and the food was mediocre. We survived, however, without any problem and overall enjoyed our first Dreamliner flight."
Cons: "Windows were dimmed most of the flight."
Pros: "A sense of quiet efficiency. On time and courteous."
Pros: "Plenty of room for economy seats. Good food. Free movies and music. Friendly service."

Pros: "best airline"
Cons: "when its best there is no comment"

Pros: "Attentive and efficient"
Pros: "Luxury, comfort and hospitality"
Pros: "The crew, Venyat looking after my aisle was exemplary. He kept note of when I was asleep when the service passed through. Whenever I go to the galley, he would notice and asked if I needed anything. And this is in Economy!"
Cons: "On the A350, the seat doesn't recline much. It was quite uncomfortable."
Pros: "So many carriers have cut back on so many things, our flight on Qatar Airlines felt like a throwback to the days when flying was enjoyable.

Pros: "The food and crew were great"
Cons: "Older plane the tv panels were faded"
Pros: "Amazing crew, new planes"

Cons: "No option to pick a seat in economy class."

Cons: "My flight was delayed almksr 3 hours...nothing more. It's very frustrating because the problem could have been avoided if they were more careful but oh well. I'm making this review very short compared to my others because I know that if I start on a rant, I won't stop. Trust me, I'll safe that for the phone call complaint I'll be making in a few hours..."

Pros: "Excellent Service"
Pros: "Timely response on the phone."
Cons: "Timely response on the phone."
Pros: "Great service and food."
Pros: "Crew had amazing customer service with a badly serviced plane"
Cons: "Was on flight QR 743 Doha to Boston. The pilot landed as if it was an afterthought In good weather, it sounded as if the pilot used the computer to land. The crew worked with great pains within a difficult situation. The flight was delayed by an hour, full flight had dirty lavatories without water from the get go! One of the middle lavatories could not lock! This plane should have been better serviced by ground crew before it departed Doha! Infotainment system is confusing, keep it simple and add more up to date movies. Even then, I will still fly QR over all else."
Cons: "I had 2 checked in luggage, and both TSA lock on it was cut. Since it was TSA lock, I do not understand why both locks were cut instead of being opened with the international key. it cost me 10 USD it for the locks."
Pros: "The airline did not give me 2 seats next to each other like I had booked more than 6 months prior to the trip. They refused to give my friend and I the 2 seats I had iriginally paid for and booked so we were stuck in the very last row of the entire plane with no reclining seats and terrible service for over 13 hours . Completely awful and really disappointing"
Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "The screen of my seat and my mom ( sitting next to me) and the lady near the window stopped working after launching and we had to stair in the dark for eleven hours the flight attendant tried but couldn't fix it. The seat itself was broken and I had to put the bottom Cushing back every time I stand up.the cue to the rest room ( one off them has a broken lock so you can't lock it ) was very long and I had to wait for 25 minutes tell I got in ( the first time I waited too long standing in an air plane )"
Cons: "Kayak/priceline re-booked my flight for my sister and I from SAA to BA, but failed to completely reissue us tickets. When we checked in for the flight, we had no ticket for the first leg of the flight, but we had tickets for the remaining flights. We immediately called to fix this problem, but due to slow customer service, we weren't issued tickets in time and the flight left without us. We missed all remaining connecting flights and were forced to buy New tickets. Now we have to work with kayak/priceline to get all my money back due to their error. We came back a day later than expected and missed going back to work."
Pros: ". ."
Pros: "As always, Qatar Airways has new planes, comfortable seats, clean atmosphere, and pretty good leg spaces. They fly on time and land on time."
Cons: "1. Food - It was not that great, especially if you are allergic to cold. It applies to asthmatic patients like me. You have very limited choices. The only hot item in my whole tray was "chicken mixed rice". Everything else from yoghurt to fruits went waste. Can we have HOT FOODS for people like me? 2. Flight Attendants - It seemed that the flight attendants were not so experienced at handling customers. Plus, several of them had poor English. That would have been okay if they had patience to listen to me slowly. But, they seemed to be in hurry and not wait enough to understand my request properly. I was asking HOT WATER and they were repeatedly handing me COLD WATER. Plus, they could see me breathing heavily and feeling great discomfort. Nobody asked me 'ARE YOU OKAY?". It seemed, they didn't care for customers like me. I found a serious lack of CUSTOMER RESPONSIVENESS, forget PRO-ACTIVENESS among several flight attendants. Finally, I found an example of SNOBBERY in the plane. A flight attendant was asking a couple sitting next to me to fill up the FEEDBACK FORM. They looked like from Middle East but were British citizens. They didn't talk to me even though I volunteered at frist to introduce myself. The lady was especially rude to me. They were dressed like high class folks. That's it. They neither represented the hundreds of passengers, especially Indians, in the Economy Cabin, nor were they friendly to fellow passengers. It left me with a feeling that Qatar Airways attendants were judging a book by cover and asking the wrong persons to fill the form who didn't really represent their majority customers for that cabin."
Pros: "1. Comfortable. 2. Good crew 3. On time 4. No hiccups."
Cons: "1. Not having wi-fi (major) 2. No news channels in in-flight entertainment 3. No snacks"
Pros: "13+ hour flight is never an "excellent" experienced but QA does its best. Great cabin service. Decent legroom. Food is good but not *quite* up to the standards of some competitors. Doha airport is great. Modern, convenient and clean."

Pros: "Easy booking on line"
Cons: "The gate was changed in Dubai without informing the passengers whom waiting on the original gate printed on the boarding pass. And charged me no show fees and delayed for an extra 12 hrs. I have the evidence of you need them."

Cons: "Every thing was bad"
Cons: "Did not get wheelchair assistance for my dad as requested."

Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "Staff wasn't the friendliest. Waiting times on Dubai airport is way too long, the airport staff was rude, and not helpful at all. Unwilling to speak English. Can learn a lot from KLM. This was my first time flying with Emirates, will be the last."

Pros: "Satisfactory in all respect"
Cons: "Crew was pathetic with no compassion towards customer."
Cons: "Had to run across Dubai airport to make my connection. Nobody at the gate to direct passengers to their short connections under 20 mins. Horrible experience. A person without the ability to run at full clip would not have made the connection. This was an international flight from Los Angeles - Bags did not make the connection either and had to wait two days for them. If you issue tickets with short connection times, it is your responsibility to make sure passengers will have adequate time to make it to their next gate. Or airline should provide some assistance to these passengers. Making them run is unacceptable."
Cons: "Long time for boarding and staff is not clear on baggage policy"
Cons: "Layover time at the airport"

Cons: "wheel char request poorly managed in Dubai and Amman Seating area next to crying children for 5 hrs + is horrible"

When I came to Mexico, the flying from Minneapolis - Houston was good Delta keep everyone social distance. The flight from Houston to Mexico City was AeroMexico was completely full NO SOCIALY DISTANCE TERRIBLE EXAMPLE !"
Pros: "Good organization, good hygiene, polite crew."
Cons: "Flight was late for one hour"

Pros: "Entertainment choices were plentiful."
Cons: "The flight attendants were borderline rude. No eye contact, no smile, not helpful when asking a question (overhead compartments were full in my section; I asked what I should do, response: „ I don’t know either“ and walked off. I went to find a spot further up the aisle..."
Pros: "Staff were friendly. Nothing they could do about the maintenance issue that we experienced."
Cons: "Hour delay due to a maintenance issue. This was a hassle in and of itself, but the flight was also on New Year's Eve and ended up getting us to Buffalo about 20 minutes before midnight, which was a bit disappointing when I had made previous plans for the night. Also, I found the cabin to be very cold during the flight, but it was pretty short so I didn't complain."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. Baggage was at carousel before we were, a first."
Cons: "Everything was fine."
Pros: "Flight itself was fine. Captain was very communicative about rough air. 757-300's are amazingling noisy; recommend headphones for a relaxing flight."
Cons: "Could not login to Delta app at MCO to show boarding pass. Had to return to a kiosk to print paper passes. Very aggravating but lesson learned to always have a paper backup. Boarding was disorganized and not by priority. Gate agents allowed passengers bull rush the gate and allowed line cuts. They lost control."
Cons: "Everything. Flight got delayed, luggage was sent before i boarded the plane. Terrible service of Delta. Never again using Delta or going to Atlanta. Wasted two days already from my vacation..."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable and didn’t mind staying with the back upright. Flight attendants veery friendly and boarding was fast and easy."
Cons: "Headrest was too short and there’s no seat back screen. More communication from the cockpit at the end would have been nice. Announcements were very hard to hear over the background plane noise."
Pros: "The Delta service desk was great! We wanted to get an earlier flight home and the Delta Rep got us on standby quickly and with a smile."
Cons: "Some chaos getting on the flight. The area they have set up for the different sections to wait before getting called weren't marked very well so everyone was bunched up and confused. Once they started calling the sections it was fine. Not sure why they even had the marked areas."
Pros: "The free small meals are a nice touch. Everything was great. The flight was on time and lived up to my expectations for the best US airline."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants didn’t seem super happy. Not much to complain about on this flight."
Pros: "Everything ran smoothly on this flight. No delays before, pleasant staff, great entertainment selection, okay food options, working equipment (e.g., tv in the headrest worked, seatbelts worked, lavatories were operational, etc.). This flight met all my expectations"
Cons: "The only hiccup was the wait time on the runway before take off. Not sure if that was the airport’s fault or the airline’s fault. We must have waited 45 minutes."
Cons: "We shared beverages The bathroom was barely big enough for a small person There isn’t enough room per passenger seat"
Cons: "Plane delayed 4 times for a total of 4 hours"
Cons: "Too many interruptions on the inflight entertainment."
Cons: "It was perfect, left on time, arrived early!!,"
Pros: "The crew on this particular flight was probably the nicest I've ever encountered on Delta. Sadly, that is rarely the case."
Cons: "Crew wasn’t very friendly"
Cons: "I wasn’t able to select my seats and choose a meal before getting to the airport and hence had a middle seat and no special meal"
Pros: "We flew Delta. My husband fractured his ankle and got a cast the day before our flight to Cancun. No turning back Our seat assignments had us separated on some segments and also at window and middle seats. On all flights we were bumped up to comfort seats with an empty seat next to us for his cast and the final flight home put in an earlier flight home to avoid a six hour layover! Delta really went over and beyond expected."
Cons: "Kayak sent me an alert to our flight telling us we left from Terminal S in Atlanta. After several joyvrides on the tram we found out there is no Terminal S!"
Cons: "The boarding process is quite confusing with all the different categories of people prior to the actual listed "zone" boarding. As an example, if you have a "Zone 2" boarding pass, you think you will be second to board when in reality that means you are second to last to board. After those who need extra time, those with small children, active military, premier, whatever.... all that covers about 2/3 of the passengers. Then of course there's all the stepping over those who already boarded which seems to slow the process overall. It would be better to ask these questions when making your reservation. Then, the zones would be appropriate based on how you made your reservation to begin with."
Pros: "Great service, comfortable plane"
Cons: "Waited 45 minutes for de-icing"
Pros: "Customer service was great"
Cons: "They change schedule day before we flight, the change schedule 2 time while were flighting"
Pros: "Staff are nice, and helpful"
Cons: "Take far too long, efficiency is extremely poor, missed flight due to luggages being lost, requested vegetarian meal, when booking, confirmed at gate but didn't have me on the list for special meal. ECONOMY class has nooo room for a long flight...and no entertainment only 3 choices for western."
Pros: "Could be among the best landings ever. I felt nothing as we touched down in Salt Lake!!!"
Cons: "That most of the seats do not recline do they could sell more seats."
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Turbulence was intense and scary. We didn’t get our drink service because it was unsafe for the flight attendant to walk the isle. The leg room seemed a lot smaller than expected."
Pros: "Seats and crew were fabulous and the flight itself was very smooth ."
Cons: "This particular plane had no entertainment system whatsoever, big disappointment."
Pros: "Good selection of movies/shows."
Cons: "Flight was delayed half an hour due to “medical emergency”. Guy passed out as we were about to take off so we turned back to the gate and sat on the plane for over 30 mins while we waited for medical personnel to check the guy out. Then had to wait another 15 mins for the fuel truck to refill us because we had burnt so much sitting there. I understand that we had to turn back due to his condition but why was he not removed from the plane and put on a later flight when he felt better instead of making all of us late? You would think after all this the crew would be kind and appreciate our patience but 2 of the flight attendants were the exact opposite of that. Both of them were very short with people and the one kept rolling her eyes at people as they were handing out drinks. The only thing I would give 5 stars is the tv entertainment. My seat wouldn’t even recline for me to enjoy though."
Pros: "Got me where I needed to go at the price I wanted to pay. - The gals at the ticketing desk were extremely helpful and cheerful."
Cons: "Not my typical Delta experience: -Boarding for special needs was a joke. A literal ‘run-on-sentence’. No more did I get up and they went to the next group. I was almost knocked over in the rush. -The onboard staff was nice enough. However, between the two of them, one of them had a thick accent. Maybe that one shouldn’t be the one making all on board announcements… and please fix the horrendous crackles too!!! -It seemed our pilot was in training… during our short flight a series of right and left turns were made, no effort to avoid turbulence, and the landing was surprisingly hard. It felt as if my spine took a quick jab to my brain as a result! What’s up?"
Pros: "Delta has a pretty good entertainment system. Lots of movies to watch and the system works well."
Cons: "Seats are very tight and uncomfortable. The food was horrible. Tasted like a $1 frozen meal that was microwaved til mushy. It was chicken but I couldn't tell you more. And flight attendant helpfully described it as 'chicken'. Breakfast was a cold roll, a piece of cheese and some awful yogurt. This was the most unbearable 8.5 hours of my life."
Cons: "Very dated plane. First class seat was worn, crooked, and uncomfortable. No entertainment offered. Almonds or biscuit cookies were the only food options."
Pros: "The flight left on time and landed earlier than anticipated"
Cons: "The seats were narrow and very upright"
Pros: "The staff onboard was friendly and attentive. They made every effort to make sure I had whatever I wanted. Boarding was quick and easy. The onbaord entertainment system had a large selection and I was never without something worth watching."
Cons: "The first class accommodation isn't as good as advertised. The seat is supposed to completely recline allowing you to sleep. Unfortunately if you're 6 foot or taller there isn't enough room. Other airlines like Emirates gives you more room in their business class so it's disappointing to see United 1st class is so cramped. The screens for the onboard entertainment system in first class are lower quality then those used in coach."
Pros: "Flight was very comfortable and had a lot of space to move around"
Cons: "The gentleman indicating on the loud speakers what zones will be loading first was very rude."
Cons: "Delays and ground chaos nearly caused us to miss our international connection. Gate staff unable to provide assistance with booking on connecting partner airline. Gate staff unaware of new terminal 3 to TBIT airside shuttle nearly directed us to leave domestic and requeue for international security. Will like skip Delta connectors to long haul international flights and just fly direct from SFO."
Cons: "Took 8 hours to get from Oakland to Los Angeles. Flight delayed then cancelled at Oakland. Driven from there to San Francisco. That flight delayed by 45 minutes. Got on board and then they neede 4 people to get off the plane since it was overweight. That took another hour. Bad day of travel."
Pros: "On line customer service was very courteous and helpful."
Cons: "We waited overnight in the airport without even an offer of accommodations, toothbrushes, meal vouchers, etc."

Cons: "The movie selection was limited."
Pros: "The crew was awsome"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "The aircraft (operating the route due to the COVID-19 shortage in traffic between the two cities) was extremely nice and quite/comfortable. The service was better than expected, as I didn't expect food to be served on dishes like it was during the pandemic. But it was amazing!"
Cons: "The crew didn't have their masks on sometimes when coming back into the cabin as they simply forgot (the new norm is hard to get used to) so maybe the airline can stress the mandatory use of face masks at ALL times. Furthermore, for my comfort of the flight (with COVID) the FA's should use gloves"
Pros: "The Food and Service was good."
Cons: "All good!"
Pros: "I was not allowed to board the flight."
Cons: "Consistency of communication online and at the airline counter about who is able to fly right now."

Cons: "Can't think of anything.."
Cons: "Los Angeles to Frankfurt on an A380 was great. Flight to Tel Aviv was good. But trying to navigate around Frankfurt was very difficult."

Cons: "Touch screenes on displays"
Cons: "It was great experience with them"
Pros: "Flight was good. Boarding was delayed, but the time was made up during flight. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "It is always about baggage. Bags with priority tags should atleast be sent on a "priority". With LH this never is the case. Priority tagged bags are sometimes the last ones to come on the belt."
Pros: "New aircraft, clean, comfortable"
Cons: "On time"
Pros: "Everything. Though Frankfurt airport is big, it was smooth transition."
Pros: "Very clean"
Cons: "Boarding process was longer than expected. Seat assigment from check in was not honored at the gate. FA asked me to switch seat only to favor passenger from Germany."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The layover was a little too short and had to run from one terminal to another in frankfurt."
Pros: "The boarding process was orderly, the seats comfortable, plenty of luggage space, excellent food -- one of the best economy class flights I've taken."
Pros: "The entertainment was good."
Cons: "Many things. Starting from the online/mobile check in process via United airlines. I was not given any other option but to check in through the United website. On that website I was not allowed to check in for my Lufthansa flights and i was stuck with seats I did not want in my 2 long intercontinental flights. This has happened before. Lufthansa has no option to check in online if my first flight leg is united. This is a very big drawback and also the reason I would not prefer to fly Lufthansa again. United is bringing the quality down."
Pros: "The food,Entertainment,was good boarding was awfull changed the terminal 2 times 55-60 min late, one of the crew member was rude."
Cons: "I assigned seats for me and my daughter but they separated us in both legs. That's not good"
Cons: "The seats were too close together."
Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "Operation system"
Cons: "Better boarding procedures. Everyone lined up at once and it took forever. What happened to boarding by rows? Also, paying an extra $35. for booking a seat is a total rip off. I usually fly Air France and have never had to buy a seat in coach."
Pros: "Don't like anything"
Cons: "Bad food delivery crew members always restless mood"
Pros: "Selection of movies in the entertainment section. Food"
Pros: "Selection of movies in the entertainment section."
Pros: "Online check in is efficient, staff both at the airport and on board are friendly and helpful. Seats (economy) are OK. Onboard entertainment is good (good choice of films, TV shows and games)"
Cons: "Food - as usual airline food is mostly inedible and unappealing. I usually eat at the airport before the flight and skip the meal onboard."
Pros: "The purser was very nice and professional, especially when some other crew members sometimes were not. Food was good and the seats were a bit less tight and narrow than in some other airlines."
Cons: "Our toddler kept pushing the call button, which was very hard to prevent. A first crew member told us to stop it without telling us how - which is quite difficult. Only the purser later helped us to find a solution by gluing something over it."
Pros: "Lunch was really good..yet,bread needs to be warm it adds desired comfort during the long flight."
Cons: "Breakfast need to include something else ,not just eggs. There should be an alternative for those who are allergic to eggs ,like me. Couple of hot wheat pancakes with Apple sause would do."
Pros: "everything was ok ."
Cons: "We booked our group of four with Lufthansa, paying $300 more than equivalent flights on competing airlines, specifically because our 20 month old daughter fits within Lufthansa's age, height, and weight limits for using the bassinet. We have reserved our tickets and the bassinet over two months in advance, paying $35 extra per seat for these reservations, and even got an email that specifically stated "bassinet confirmed". On the flight, when it came time to install the bassinets, the flight attendant came to us, took a look at our daughter, and said that she will not fit in the bassinet, that she is too tall, and too heavy, and suggested that we should have checked the limits for the bassinet before coming on the flight. When we inquired as to the actual limits, she could not provide any numbers, only said that she could see that our daughter is too big for it. When the family next to us got their bassinet, it became very obvious that our daughter would fit in the bassinet, and we pointed out that she was well below the height and weight limits published on the Lufthansa website. Only then did the flight attendant admit that there were other babies on the flight, and they only had four bassinets on the plane, despite having 11 slots where bassinets could be installed. Our reservation months in advance did not matter - we did not get the bassinet. As compensation, we were offered some Lufthansa miles, or 50 euros for in-flight duty free shopping. However, we lost close to 1000 dollars as a group when we chose to fly Lufthansa rather than a less expensive airline. We were very uncomfortable throughout the flight, having to hold my daughter in my arms for over five hours. We are are still very upset that the crew blatantly lied to us."
Pros: "This flight was 11 hours and I could have lasted another 2 or so hours."
Cons: "The lady who checks paperwork for animals at the front desk with Luftansa Airlines was uninformed and didn't know what she was doing as well as unnessarily rude. MY large dog was on this flight and after several employees had looked over my forms for him she came out nowhere and threatened to not allow my dog on board due to faulty and incomplete paperwork! I instantly went into a nervous condition of the sweats and scrambled to prove her wrong. When I asked again what was wrong with my (actually legitame paperwork) she just told me that at this point it didn't matter and that she would allow me to fly even though I was at risk of quarantine aty destination. I wasn't happy about this and asked again why there seemed to be an issue and she was unhelpful, handed me a business card for the USDA and told me that I was lucky to get away with her travel mercies for my dog. I had visited a USDA certified veterinarian and she hadn't given me the opportunity to prove this. I was confused and annoyed and while the other employees could see this about me, they apologized on her behalf. I really wish I had gotten this woman's name and work station so I could follow up with her and inform her on a few things. Other than that I love working with and flying Lufthansa airlines!"

Pros: "Everything is excellent."
Cons: "As mentioned above."
Pros: "Overall okay. Glad to have made it on time."

Cons: "Couldn't checkin online. Had to wait in line for over an hour."
Pros: "Great people working for luftansa."
Cons: "Television didn't work. Extremely tight seating."
Cons: "Did not get the luggage for 4 days! I was asked to purchase clothes etc and that they will only reimburse 50% of it. It is understandable that security may have held the bag, but I cannot understand why Lufthansa could not load it for 3 more days?"
