Pros: "The level of care and attention that was given to my comfort during the flight was extraordinary. Also the economy was much better than any economy i've ever come to expect from other airlines."

Cons: "Not applicable"
Pros: "I love Japan Airlines. The service is always impeccable. The stewardesses are really nice and very efficient."

Personal screen was modern and provided a great variety to keep me entertain during the very long flight. Seats are unexpectedly big and very comfortable together with functional well designed pockets beside the screen, where I could put my personal items. New and clean cabin."

Cons: "No smiling faces of flight attendants. Service was mediocre; food same"

Pros: "The food is very delicious. I can choose a lot of great movies. The space is also big to move."
Pros: "The flight from Jakart to Japan, Japan to Chicago, was not a problem. Although thr food was typical plane food."
Cons: "My brother and his wife had to wait 12 hrs for plane delay,just to hear that AA canceled all flight for that date. The crew told my brother and his wife to wait for another12 hours which is the next morning, for next flight. My brother decided to just take a rental car to KZO, and was going to just take their luggage from the airline, but the AA crew would not let them did so, and was really rude. It was very traumatic experience for the both of them and other passangers of how bad they treated this plane delay/cancellation issue. One passenger with baby was having a panic attack, but nothing was done. So far, no compensation, or apology email has been sent. Will never take this airline anymore. We are done."
Pros: "The flight was long, but good. I was able to upgrade to better seats for only $100 which made the long flight more comfortable. AA customer service on the flight was very good."
Pros: "service is great!"
Cons: "nothing"
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: "Service"
Cons: "Not anyone fault but I wish seating was better fitted in economy for taller people"
Pros: "Everything was perfect - crew, food, service, comfort, entertainment."

Cons: "Not much space between the seats for my long legs."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Free Wi-Fi would be nice"
Pros: "JAL is the best airline I've ever flown."
Cons: "Food isn't to my liking but was good."
Pros: "the AA flight to japan was the worst flight I've ever been on! tv sreen didn't work, space was tight, food terrible, two sets of headphones bad, I could go on but I don't even want to think about it anymore"
Cons: "getting off"
Pros: "The service, food, entertainment, everything was perfect. Thanks so much"
Pros: "SERVICE was amazing and everything was very smooth"
Pros: "Soft chair."
Cons: "The stewardess was been chatting with the passenger the whole time and she called everyone a "darling." You have to pay for your snack and there are no entetainment. But like I said...I don't care because it's only a short flight. What I care is the flight being delayed."
Pros: "Apex suite offers plenty of privacy in business class though fewer stowage areas and generally less room to move about than reverse herringbone seats."
Cons: "JAL entertainment system had comparably fewer movie choices vs. many other airlines including American, United, and Delta. Surprising that Studio Cathay actually featured more Japanese films than the JAL Magic V system."
Cons: "Late boarding"
Pros: "This complaint is more targeted at American Airlines, which handled the New York Washington leg of the trip. They provided free food such as sandwiches and drinks at the gate due to the 2 hour delay."
Cons: "Red eye flight delayed for 2 hours. Then delayed another hour on the runway. No in-flight enternmaint, which would have made it bearable. Descent into Washington Reagan National freaked me out because the plane was flying eratically while being so close to the ground and recognizable landmarks."
Pros: "I booked a flight with JAL; my flight to Japan shafted me with American only. But, this flight was premo! The plane was bigger, more room. The entertainment was much much better than the American Airlines archive. The seats and accessories like pillow, blanket, etc. again much better. 12hr flight was over in what felt like about 5hrs (I watched Star Wars and Hunger Games)."
Cons: "The fact I'm too poor to get a premium or above seat."
Pros: "Food was good, entertainment was plentiful. One of the best flights I've ever been on."
Cons: "Not a big deal, but I needed to borrow a pen and the flight staff hardly had any."

Food was not good at all

Pros: "The simplicity."
Cons: "A closer gate. Some inflight food."
Pros: "The crew was professional and super friendly."
Cons: "Our bags had arrived early, and were waiting at the service station. However, there was no one there in the rooms and our stuff was left outside the door. We have pictures of our bags left out. It’s kind of a bummer that our stuff was left unattended. Someone could of grabbed it."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "This was a much more pleasant flight than I had from DC to Tokyo back on Jan 15"
Pros: "no -all that was amazing was the complete idiocy of ana"
Cons: "virtually everything was a unacceptable starting with the gate staff ..."
Pros: "Crew was awesome, super attentive and friendly."
Cons: "The seats were not really confortable and the TV menu did not have enough English shows or new movies, even old ones within the menu would've been great. Also - this probably has nothing to do with the company but- there were passengers who took their shoes, even their socks out! It was disgusting"
Cons: "Less announcements to interrupt the entertainment."
Pros: "Crew on ANA is always the best Also custom check in was amazingly fast, I went to the side custom check in by accident (there are two) It took less than 5 minutes, I didn’t not know I had to fill another card to leave japan but it was super easy as there was a person to guide me + basic info"
Cons: "Other than chairs being more comfortable nothing really"
Cons: "if the seat can be reclined a little more"
Pros: "The crew is amazing but that is to expect since it was a Japanese crew that operated from Narita."
Cons: "The vegetarian food was terrible; unless they mistook my request and did a vegan option. The first meal was an o-k noodle stirfry type of thing but the breakfast was a porridge that had no flavor. Hopefully it was a misunderstanding but worth noting."
Pros: "There was lots of leg room. Crew was nice."
Cons: "One of our seats had a broken recliner button."
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good"
Cons: "Movie catalog needs to be expanded"
Pros: "The crew was not amazing and the plane was ok. Our flight to LAX NH106 was delayed 6 hours. We slept in the airline lounge and given minimal compensation."
Cons: "Place the passengers in a hotel rather than have us us crammed in a lounge where you can hear angry passengers arguing."
Pros: "Same level of exceptional service on this second leg of my journey. I am looking forward to my next two flights with ANA when i return home."
Pros: "Food and services were great"
Cons: "Not a large selection to view on the TV"
Pros: "The food and the very friendly and courteous flight attendants."
Pros: "Friendly & helpful stewardesses, watched new release movies, good meals, overall a smooth ride."
Cons: "Quite a few passengers with young children crying throughout the trip but I can sympathize trying to keep them occupied on such a long flight."
Cons: "Everything. The best I I"
Pros: "Service was excellent. Crew did not accept tip. Food could be better."
Pros: "Excellent service."
Pros: "As my other flights with them, the crew is so friendly, the planes are nice and pretty good movie selection. Also nicely organized and they apologized profusely for the hour delay. I wish all of the American airline companies would learn from them! Great beverage service too, even when people are sleeping they quietly come around for us who are awake."
Cons: "The food for vegetarians is not very good. But they feed you a lot and you won't go hungry!"
Pros: "After some considerable panic at losing my long confirmed seat assignment as a result of weather problems in Tokyo, the doors ended up closing with at least 20 empty seats in coach. (Boeing 777-300)"
Cons: "Although it is served with care, the food on ANA (in coach) ends up being a bit too Japanese. I understand this carrier needs to cater to a broad cultural and geographic audience, but I think they make it too complicated. Giving meal service a decidedly Japanese angle results in main courses that are mush, and sides that are OK. Good yogurt, decent fruit, delicately prepared salads, delicious cookies and hagen daz are pretty simple and make the meals fun. (especially since chop sticks are always included), but the ovens turn the main courses into a stinky and kinda nasty thing. I wish they would simplify."
Pros: "Comfort was good"
Cons: "Drinks and refreshments given in meager amounts by stewardess like it was being rationed Choice and scope of movies was poor and narrow"
Pros: "Huge plane with nice leg room and space. Attentive attendants with excellent service."
Cons: "Didn’t care for the food nor movie choices."
Pros: "Food & Entertainment"
Pros: "ANA is a great airline with a decicated group of professional. I love flying with them!"
Cons: "Can't think of one thing."
Cons: "Wifi is a rip off. I bought 1 hour of wifi and didnt last for 1 minute. Really hoping that i can get a refund for it"
Cons: "Flight was moved to6 am, 4 hours earlier than scheduled. Found out less than 24 hours before flight. ANA refused to rebook on an available flight leaving at the original time. Disappointed (and tired)."
Pros: "Ample legroom and there is a good selection of food."
Cons: "Was on overnight transit and I was surprised to find out that the airport closes at 11pm and there was no transit lounge inside the airport. It was too late to book for a hotel outside the airport so had to stay at the meeting point area with other passengers."
Pros: "Friendly and accommodating crew"
Pros: "The food were good and just enough for the inflight need"
Cons: "The time to get to the next flight is so tight! I wish there's a 30 minutes more so I don't have to rush and be the last one to get in the plane."
Pros: "Flight was very good - enjoyed meal and entertainment"
Cons: "Should make it clear to passengers ahead of time that flight departs from international terminal (terminal 1) at Shanghai airport (and also that flight is NOT out of Pudong airport, although we were aware of the latter fact ahead of time)."
Cons: "Pretzels"
Pros: "I slept most of the way home so didn`t use the entertainment."
Pros: "Flight was great."
Cons: "ANA partnered with United on this leg. Service was not even comparable to ANA. The economy cabin flight crew was detached and unattentive. The elderly man when serving meals just flops or slams your tray on your tray table. The attendants do not even clean the tiolets like the ANA attendants do. Such difference in service. I wish that ANA will notbpartner with United. It sure tarnishes their brand."
Pros: "Most all."
Cons: "Old business class configuration. Today, expectations are for lie-flat chairs, especially for longer flights leaving at very early hours."
Pros: "Modern planes Clean planes Great flight attendants Comfortable seats in economy"
Pros: "Very nice flight. The plane was in great shape and the stewardesses were very nice."
Pros: "EVERYTHING!"
Pros: "I fly around often, at least 10 times a year, and ANA has always had the best service, cleanest planes, and the best entertainment. I recommend flying with ANA anytime you travel."
Pros: "Friendly and attentive flight attendants. The food were decent. The snacks through the flight were very good."
Cons: "The limited entertainment. Some of the Japanese TV drama doesnt have English substitle."
Pros: "Great service, I'd definitely fly again."
Cons: "Wifi should be free"
Cons: "Flight attendants didn't speak English; no amenities provided (toothbrush, eye kit, etc.) like Etihad and Qatar provide in economy. There weren't a lot of meal options. There should be double the movies and music offered given that you can go through all of the offerings in one or two legs of a trip. I had four. BBC news didn't work on any leg of the trip and the Japanese news was in Japanese only, no English."
Pros: "ANA service is always great. Always my first choice."
Cons: "The 777-200 on this route is getting a little old. It would be nice to have one of their newer 787 planes instead. And there is no Premium Economy option."
Pros: "Great star wars vessel. Very attentive staffs and flight attendants."
Pros: "Our seats did not recline, but were locked in the fully upright position, making it impossible to sleep. If this is policy for ANA, many customers will go to other airlines."
Cons: "Seats in the exit row did not recline, making them uncomfortable and hard to sleep in."
Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Seats were teeny"

Pros: "Will if you didnt know yet it was horrible. because of the reschedulling i miss my flight from paris to venice and all this flight is boon through you but i couldnt contact cheapflights because you dont handle it. So what do you think??"
Cons: "Well at least you could at least know what happened but instead i still got message from you that my flight was still on for 1235 really are you guys that really dumb??"
Pros: "Seats are alright... good thing I don’t have a seatmate so I have a little bit more room to move."
Cons: "I miss the free giveaways or little travel gifts that they used to give."
Pros: "No"
Cons: "Food and Crew"
Pros: "I don't know why now there was no little gift or stuff keep kids busy during the flight, but only movie."
Cons: "keep providing little gifts for kids"
Pros: "Food was good, service quick and efficient"
Cons: "Inconsiderate people in front reclining seats. Meant already cramped conditions in economy were made worse!"
Pros: "Except for one time service everything else is good"
Pros: "Not much"
Pros: "Food for economy was great. Entertainment system great."
Cons: "Left half hour late."
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "Crew not helpful or particularly friendly not sure if it was because we were not Chinese!"
Pros: "We got to our destination"
Cons: "Premium Economy waste of money , staff don’t clear rubbish away No room very disappointed won’t do it again"

Pros: "On time, easy check in and boarding"
Cons: "Lack of variety in food choices, long wait at tarmac for take off from Beijing"
Pros: "Service was great and friendly and attentive"
Cons: "Setting chart was not accurate. It showed a space between my seat and next to me and there was no space between."
Pros: "Food great, smooth flight. Helpful stewardess. Fairly comfy seats"
Cons: "Punctuality doesn’t seem to be a priority for Cathay Pacific or Cathay dragon"
Pros: "Everything. Great staff, punctual departing yimes, good communications. I have taken many airlines and this is the best if not one of the best. Keep up the great work. Only suggestion I would say is showing what types of foods offered as special meals, menu i mean."
Pros: "No drinks served before the meal. No water brought round during the night. Cabin staff efficient if a bit brisk. Food not quite OK - no imagination. Films really good."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I’m still not there. They had me go to the airport 5 hours early to get a different flight cuz theirs was delayed then after not being able to make those flights carrying my 5 bags to 3 different terminals they said just go on their delayed flight and cuz they had over 80 people going on to Manila that they would hold the last flight there but when we landed we were informed going to a hotel and no compensation for it. I am extremely pissed off"
Cons: "Bulk head seats. People walked over me all night including staff"
Pros: "Staff onboard were extremely helpful."
Cons: "Cathay Pacific lounge (The Peir) didn't broadcast boarding announcements so we nearly missed it."
Pros: "no trouble at all"
Cons: "would like more vegetarian food options on the flight. i didn't think to order ahead but it would have been nice if the food choices had offered more options."
Pros: "Most of the stuff was regular flights"
Cons: "Even after explicitly asking them for Hindu vegetarian food they gave me chicken with the wrong label. I realized it after eating a bite. They should not have done this mistake."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew. The food was pretty good and the flight was so smooth that I slept for about 10 hours of our 16 hour flight. Can't wait to fly Cathay Pacific the next time I fly to Asia!"
Cons: "Crew was always in hurry"
Pros: "Entertainment was good. There was a lot of movies to choose from."
Cons: "Not enough padding on the seats for long distance travel. Not enough leg room. Not enough baggage bin over top of your seat people from other seats put their luggage on your overhead bins."
Pros: "Liked the bit more leg room, wish I had that plane on my San Francisco leg"
Pros: "Being executive platinum has its perks even when not flying AA but a one world partner early boarding and an attentive flight attendants."
Pros: "CREW AND PLANE"
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Able to sleep. Arrived safely."
Cons: "I accidentally sat in the wrong seat and had settled in comfortably, when a crew member pointed it out, I quickly got up and made my way to my seat. However someone was sitting there. The crew member told me that since the person had settled in I'd have to sit in another seat and pointed to yet another seat. Needless to say I was very confused and more than a little ticked with the inconsistent behaviour. Things didn't get any better when they defended their approach instead of simply acknowledging the problem."
Pros: "I like the service and the foods are so delicious."
Cons: "The charging port when I was on my way to Hong Kong from Los Angeles, it wasn't working so that's the only thing that I didn't like."
Cons: "Should have more Indian movies on flight."
Pros: "Thank you for your services."
Pros: "Unfortunately nothing positive to write"
Cons: "Disappointing service, poor upkeep of planes, not at all punctual (travelled multiple legs with Cathay, not one of them took off on time). Bad airline, getting worse"
Cons: "1-hour delay due to inclement weather"
Pros: "Service and courtesy"
Pros: "Like a little private apartment, glorious."
Cons: "No wifi, limited mivies"
Pros: "Luggage allowance, in-flight meals, good flight, arrived early"
Cons: "Cabin a bit "dull""
Pros: "The hard product of seats and plane was really nice. Flying the new A359, very comfortable. Lower cabin pressure felt really nice on the skin. Lie flat beds were a treat, and a massive entertainment system."
Cons: "The food was average. Had some chicken on pasta on the way over, chicken was dry and without sauce. My wife fainted on the flight and the flight attendant wasn't the most reassuring. Also her foot rest broke and they blamed her weight which was mean."
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "The chair size. The movie"
Cons: "Stewardess in my isle was not friendly. Don't have enough supply of bottle water. HK airport won't allow drink to be brought on the plane even though it was bought at the airport. Hard cushion on chair."
Pros: "crew members are friendly"
Pros: "Best meal service ever, my husband never eats airplane food but gobbled up the dinner and the breakfast served. Seats were comfortable, beverages were readily available, one of the best airlines in the world."
Cons: "Didn't have slippers, only socks. Slightly inconvenient having to put shoes back on to run to the restroom, which sometimes have wetness from God knows what."

Great food options in first class. Great movie options and attentive crew.

The check-in boarding counter only had 1 employee, the flight was running 20mins late.

Delayed departure. Made me have to pay more for parking and had to call out of work.

Anyone that purchased a Delta 1st Class seat should have access to the Delta Sky Club. My wife and I purchased 1st Class tickets for a Delta flight from SeaTac to Washington Dulles but were denied entrance to the SeaTac Delta Sky Club because we did have an American Express card.

Cons: "This plane was too full for social distancing. I was really skeptical about this flight as it relates to the COVID pandemic."
Cons: "There should not be a pay wall around the internet in today's day and age"
Pros: "The crew was good, and the airline tried to make our wait in the airport as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "The four-hour delay was really hard. Since it was in DC, I don't know why it took so long to get another plane."
Pros: "The delta checkin desk were exceptional."
Cons: "N/a"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over two hours"
Cons: "Vegan options"
Pros: "Information communicated about delays."
Cons: "- more communication (any!) about bag status when landed - flight delay due to too many/too heavy baggage. Long delay was said to be due to making sure our baggage would accompany destination. Upon arrival, bag was left in NYC but this wasn't communicated. No info on bag status at airport or via ema"
Cons: "First class seats were too close together. It was very difficult to get out of you seat into the aisle. Food was not what it should have been for 1st class There was no wall between 1st class and coach giving little privacy when I worked my laptop. it was in direct view of the middle seat in coach"
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "Seat assignments should have be provided at check in."
Pros: "The flight attendees were nice and attentive. The entertainment was great."
Cons: "The boarding crew was less than pleasant and had an attitude. They changed my assigned seat and when I asked why, they rushed me to board offering no explanation except “your seat is no longer available”."
Pros: "The service by delta employees for this leg of my journey was beyond great. The leg room was above average."
Cons: "Leg room. Never can have enough leg room."
Pros: "The crew was dealing with NOVA/DC residents"
Pros: "Coming from Europe Alitalia and Delta did an EXCELLENT job at assisting the passengers get rid of their luggage just as soon as we were done going through customs... I don't usually fly on this route, but I thought it was perfect. Transfer between Delta terminal was a breeze too..."
Cons: "I usually don't fly from JFK. The food court was expensive (18 dollars base price from a burger seems a high even for an airport. I don't fly from NY normally - so maybe I need to tune my expectation for the locale, and it may have NOTHING to do with the airline company."
Pros: "Flight left on time"
Cons: "Gate crew had trouble identyfing boarding pass on their computer. Difficulty getting on plane"
Pros: "We had a terrific trip returning home. Yes, it was crowded but everything was organized and all went well."
Cons: "Airplanes should board back to front. Then people don’t have to get bumped as later passenger try to carry 2 items onto a packed plane."
Pros: "Smooth flight. Everything was great."
Pros: "The service is very good from the beginning. The flight attendant is very caring thanks so much."
Cons: "The aircraft is too old, MD-88. I don't know how Delta is flying that type of aircraft. Is very risky"
Pros: "The crew was nice and did the best they could"
Cons: "The flight was late, extremely turbulent, and was spent mostly under 10k feet, so wifi was available for only a very short time"
Pros: "Another safe flight. Crew was very attentive."
Cons: "Flight cancelled due to weather that was never bad but on the potential of bad weather. Had to scramble so my 18 year old son was not stranded overnight in a strange place and Delta does not help. Only rebooked a flight itinerary for the next day for a 4 hour flight with connections on a 1 hour direct flight. Spent an hour on line to figure out what to do. #neverdelta"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Plane delayed 4 times for a total of 4 hours"
Pros: "The flight for getting us therw"
Cons: "No food and no entertainment"
Cons: "The"
Pros: "Everyone is working the gate and on the plane were amazing!"

Pros: "Free movies on plane, quick boarding! Ok time :)"
Cons: "The flight was fine, but there was no onboard entertainment. Fortunately the Wi-Fi worked so I was able to stream."

Cons: "No wifi, no leg room"
Pros: "After flight was cancelled, rebooking was easy and quick on the app."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. flight attendants were grumpy. One of the tightest seats I've flown in economy. No room in overheads so I had to stuff my winter coat between my legs with my backpack under the seat in front of me. Was basically wedged into the seat with my stuff."
Pros: "Quick flight!"
Cons: "Didn't realize the last seat on the plane doesn't mean back."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, relaxed, made everything seem like a breeze"
Pros: "I could be wrong, but the seats were very comfortable (for a plane) and I felt my knees weren't as close to the seat in front of me than other airlines. So that's a plus."
Pros: "Enjoyed food and movies.Woul"
Cons: "Would like more comedy or romance movies. Becky"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, ample leg room, and the chairs were pretty plush. Comfort+ is pretty nice"
Cons: "On my first flight they forgot to turn the wifi on. I have unlim data but obviously can't use while in air; no big though."
Pros: "flight attendants were great."
Cons: "not enough leg room and space. The business class should be at the minimum for economy."
Pros: "Professional and efficient"
Cons: "I am 5'3". My feet never touch the floor, which is quite uncomfortable after about an hour."
Pros: "The crew was polite and friendly"
Cons: "My second plane had sooo much moisture coming from the cooling system it looked like the passengers were getting gased and I kept getting wet from water condensation falling on me in a window seat as I tried to sleep from having such an early flight to begin with only to be told it's delayed 3 hrs without explanation."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Good seats."
Pros: "Gate agents kept us very informed and provided snacks."
Cons: "2-hour long delay"
Pros: "Free drinks in Comfort+"
Pros: "Everyone was very polite"
Cons: "Too many seats hadn't been aside. It was an unnecessary wait in line for about 20 people to get their seat assignments."
Pros: "We had comfort class and it's very nice"
Cons: "Both Crews at airport and on flight aren't very friendly, I guess this is the nature of all American flight after seeing how customer being treated from the United incident"
Cons: "See above description"
Pros: "Crew was fantastic!"
Pros: "Seat back tv’s"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 3 hours, food was mediocre at best"
Cons: "Business Class Seating had 3 seats in middle Refurbished 747 had new seats, but still felt like an old plane with awkward layout"
Pros: "The flight was seamless,appreciated the frequent food and drink service"
Cons: "The boarding was priority and then everyone else. Didn’t realize economy boarding had no real order."
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"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled from Nashville to Chicago due to "mechanical issue" so we were unable to get on the flight to Naples. United rebooked us on a flight leaving the next day, and we are currently sitting in Chicago on a 6 hour layover. So no, I am not happy at all with this experience. We are missing a day in Italy and have been charged a day stay in Sorrento which we are unable to use. I have contacted United customer service to see if they can compensate us."
Pros: "The flight was on time. The cabin crew was helpful and very friendly and the food was the best we have recently had on an international flight. The entertainment selection was enormous and spanned the realm of all venues."
Pros: "On time. Enough leg room even in economy. Staff nice. Good selection of movies. Food was actually tasty"
Pros: "The food was good, along with the service."
Cons: "Medical emergency in the row in front of me and all of the crew blocked my television screen so I could not watch my movie. I was sitting in first class."
Cons: "Quite satisfiedoverall"
Pros: "The crew was helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Checking in on-line was not very "user friendly". Our aircraft had to be replaced causing a 2 hour delay, part of which was an ATC sequencing delay. The 50 minute ATC delay couldn't be controlled by LH, but the original equipment replacement was at the bottom of the overall delay. My "A" window seat in economy had significantly reduce foot space due to a metal box installed in the space. The seat was not particularly well designed, but it's economy so you get what you get. The food was average at best."
Cons: "I hated that the plane did not wait for me as I have been on plenty of airlines that have waited 5-10 mins to allow for these sort of things to be rectified. thankfully, Lufthansa and United booked me on a plane that left 5 hours later. they even bought me a 10 euro lunch. :), a pass to the , Luftanhsa lounge would have also been a good showing. I asked about this , but was gently denied. the help desk was gracious, which I appreciated. I had an entire row to myself on the United flight to DC, which softened the blow as well but the flight to Munich from IAD was great (2-28-18)"
Cons: "Because my first flight took off late, my luggage didn't make it on this flight. It was not waiting for me at customs and I didn't get it until several days later."
Pros: "Hospitable service"
Cons: "Service/hospitable"
Pros: "Flight attendants very nice and efficient"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and respectful"
Cons: "Another passenger came and sat in the seat that was empty next to me and wasn’t ever asked to return to her own, assigned seat"
Cons: "Requested vegetarian and was served vegan"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful, as is always true with both Lufthansa and Austrian Airlines (both of which I traveled on as part of this trip)."
Cons: "I would highly recommend both Lufthansa and Austrian adjust their entertainment systems. They seem not to weight much the top films with, say 75% Rotten Tomatoes reviews or higher. Even if there were fewer options for cost reasons, I would think they'd still have more watcher enjoyment. Rather than pad the list with the likes of Boss Baby or Going out in Style or even a mediocre 60% offering in the Fast and Furious franchise. Wonderful crew, though, can't say enough about how polite and attentive they are."
Pros: "The food was pretty good. Entertainment selection was good!"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed for some reason. It seemed like every baby in the world was on the plane, and they all cried at the same time. Of course, Lufthansa can't help that. The on-flight entertainment system was painfully slow."
Pros: "The meal was very delicious and had a good selections of different movies. The crew was attentive and helpful."
Pros: "The cabin crew was welcoming and kind. The trip was comfortable as well"
Cons: "Non that i know of"
Pros: "Great food! Attentive staff, comfy seats."
Cons: "For a transatlantic flight, boarding was one mass stampede, seats were hard as a rock, tight, media "touch" screen had to be punched to work, worst selection of entertainment film & TV show options I can remember for an overseas flight"
Pros: "Cabin crew was friendly helpful and courteous. Service was very good even t hough the flight was completely full."
Cons: "The seating on this aircraft is inadequate for a long flights. Tall people really suffer due to seat size and spacing. There was a 6"6" man of median weight for his height who was in the middle seat next to me and he could barely fit into his seat. It was not his fault, rather the unrealistic expectation that airline seats actually fit today's customer. Not only is there not enough leg room, but the width of the seat leaves no room for arms or shoulders. No one should have to ride 7-plus hours touching the shoulders of the passenger next to them! I used to prefer to fly on Lufthansa because their seating was more comfortable than other carriers, but I will try another airline next time."
Cons: "Delays in Nice led to a narrow window for connection. More than ten people were left behind - doors practically closed in our faces - and Lufthansa was wholly unhelpful in rescheduling flights. Lines to speak with agents were absurd and then attendants had to take breaks instead of resolve issues. There were no solutions offered, only poor communication and an unwillingness to accommodate a significant number of customers who were inconvenienced. Finally, a "random inspection" led to a handful of passengers being surveyed by the German local police. Interestingly, a number of us were Hispanic Americans. The whole experience was extremely negative."
Pros: "Overall good."
Cons: "Quantity of food served was very less. They could have given more."
Cons: "It was my bad luck to be near two children whose parents would not keep them quiet and who played games on their screen for nine hours straight, shrieking the entire time. Nor did any of the stewards help or say boo to the parents."
Pros: "Cabin is not very private feeling, plus you have to climb over people. Maybe slightly better than Air France's offering on the A380. Service and food was good."
Pros: "I always praised Lufthansa food, but this time we got chicken pasta, which was weird. Please bring back your normal option: chicken + puree."
Pros: "Movie selection Meal selection was good Crew was courteous, smiling, friendly"
Cons: "Space felt cramped (small)"
Pros: "On-time, excellent and friendly service. I received the special meal I requested (vegetarian Asian) and it was very tasty."
Cons: "Not very many English language movies. I wasn't able to get the subtitle in English for the German programs."
Cons: "There is never enough room in coach. The food was TERRIBLE."
Cons: "I don't expect good food, but found both served meals to be inedible. Confusing security situation at airport - multiple passport controls and at the final point there was only one check in line for all departing US flights. Since most of these flights left within an hour of each other it was bad news. Once again another chance to stand in line for way too long."
Pros: "The food was good, and crew came around several times to offer drinks."
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: "The crew was so pleasant, the seats reclined extremely comfortably, the TV and movie selection was great, the food service was prompt and I never felt like I was bugging them if you asked for something extra (not that you needed to ask cause they made frequent multiple trips down the aisles)"
Cons: "obvious crew disapproval when walking up and down the aisles to keep lively one year old entertained and from crying!"
Pros: "Great service."
Pros: "I called Lufthansa customer service on 8/10/16 the day before our flight because I wasn't feeling well and was concerned that I might feel worse the next day and have to cancel our flight. The lovely Customer Service rep was so sweet and concerned about my health, answered all my questions about what to do if I needed to cancel, and told me to call back anytime for more help. Also the flight attendants remembered my food allergies and were very attentive on the flights."
Pros: "everything except the fact that no explanation was given why the plane was delayed by an hour and a half"
Cons: "Food was not very good for a few euros mote per passenger food could improve a lot"
Pros: "it was nice trip from Lufthansa. only the issue was with the space between the seats in the economy class but rest was fine"
Pros: "Crew was courteous and efficient. Food was not bad."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "we love flying with Lufthansa. the staff are always so helpful and accommodating!"
Cons: "the food was good not great and the movie selections wasn't good compared to other flights. The comfort..........well, it's an airplane."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The layover time was too short and for the second time I barely made it to my connecting flight but my luggage didn't. That is very annoying."
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."
Pros: "Food and movies on board were good"
Cons: "Our flight was 3 hrs delayed so ended up missing our next flight. Also they said there would be someone outside the gate when we landed to help us figure out another flight if we were missing our connection and there was no one there. Had to go find a customer service desk. They did put us up in a hotel for the night but after 3 weeks abroad we were really looking forward to getting home. Also the landing was very rocky. I felt sea sick and a lady behind me was actually throwing up it was so rough."
Pros: "Flight was operated by United Airlines. Easy boarding, friendly crew. Pillows, blankets, and headphones provided plus free house wine and beer as well as the usual coffee, tea, soda. Seatback video did not work for me, but I had no plans to use it as I needed to sleep on the flight. Excellent vegetarian dinner of vegetable korma, chickpeas and rice. Heated snack was not meatless, though, so as a Catholic flying on Friday had to pass."
Cons: "Vegetarian option (or meatless Friday option) for snacks as well as meals would be nice. They are in the process of changing to personal device entertainment, so seatback screen issue will not be a problem in the future."
Cons: "Entertainment seems like you have to pay for even basics. If you need to charge for movies domestically, fine, but even basic news or so timed out. Seats are tight (legroom). I am 6'2" and knees were against seat in front of me."
Cons: "About five pieces of souvenir pottery were lost because somebody who checked the luggage forgot to wrap them back the way they were. It was a sloppy work maybe by customs or security but i hold you responsible since i had booked my flight with Lufthansa sincerely Ioannis Stratakis"
