All liked. It was very good 😊

Pros: "At least it was delayed so we could make it to SFO."
Cons: "The American Airlines flight was delayed so the delayed flight from Honolulu could make it to Los Angeles and not subject AA to additional complaints. We arrived at close to midnight and worried about getting the car out of the parking lot without incurring additional charges of and additional day. The food was not great."
Cons: "The crew members could have been more courteous to clients on the flight by lowering their voices when conversating among themselves."
Pros: "The seat was very spacious"
Cons: "More space to put things"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and service was excellent."
Cons: "At check-in counter in MNL, the JAL agent mistakenly told me that I don't need to claim my bag and re-check at DFW before heading to final destination MEM. Food wasn't as good as previous JAL flights earlier this year and last year. That said, it's still better than other airlines."
Cons: "If the flight was on time."
Pros: "Wonderful crew, wonderful food, love the chef program for meals which helped me feel more engaged in the JAL experience, and air mos burger for breakfast which made me feel as though JAL truly wants to show its passengers highlights of modern Japanese culture."
Cons: "Seat and seatback were so stiff and uncomfortable that my tailbone and neck/back hurt; I had fallen asleep and woke from the discomfort. Entertainment had censored versions of films that ruined the viewing experience. Music collection interface could be designed better."
Cons: "The flight had a lot of background noise from the plane. I couldn’t hear what the attendants were saying."
Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "The chairs were just a little uncomfortable, too firm, but everything else made up for it."
Pros: "The ANA crew at Haneda airport were very polite, professional, and very patient with me. However due to an online error between the ANA US website and the ANA JP website my confirmed seat on my flight was given to another passenger so I was kicked off. How this happened I dont know."
Cons: "Fix ANA US-JP online booking system."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly."
Cons: "The entertainment selection is really small."
Pros: "Spacious leg room."
Cons: "The food is average. Could be much better. Eg, serve eggs like omelette for Breakfast. Only one choice . The other choice could be Jap menu vi differing it’s s Japanese airline. Flew JAL 2 yrs ago too. Food was not good. Also , toilets could be cleaner. There’s always a pungent smell."
Pros: "Service was excellent. Premium economy seats well worth the few extra $$."
Pros: "The food the service and flight was great"
Pros: "The service was excellent"
Cons: "Food needs improvement"
Pros: "Everything about this flight was awesome. The food, the people, the seats in economy felt like first class. VERY polite and happy attendants compared to American Airlines who seemed to be annoyed by those on the flight."
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."
Cons: "The fact that my father was diagnosed with Cancer and they wouldn’t refund our 1300.00 for round trip tickets to the Philippines which is our vacation home. The airline required documentation from my fathers doc which I provided. He was not going anywhere for at least a year (radiation and chemo) and the denied even credit.I was able to get my parents tickets refunded by a different airline. NEVER Again. my father passed 8/12/2018. Our trip was scheduled for 9/13/2018. Very disappointing.see"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Landing was horrible worse landing I have ever had"
Pros: "Excellent service - delicious meals"
Pros: "Courteous and professional flight attendants"
Cons: "Long gap between meals. At least they could have provided juice or snacks in between meals"
Pros: "Smooth, on-time, friendly staff. The food was giid and plentiful. What happened to the complimentary toiletries, though?"
Cons: "Omg did you study how to prevent people from sleeping? If you allowed the head of the seat to go back just 3 more inches i think i could sleep. Instead, i am tortured like a yawn that wont come out, a mosquito in the dark, an itch that runs away from my fingers ... out of reach and just inaccessible. 12 hours of wishing so that by the time i reach my final destination, I've been awake over 24 hours. Im getting too old for that."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable for economy, but that's about it. Unfortunately, everything else ranged between mediocre and okay. For non stop to Japan, I'd rather fly ANA."
Cons: "The whole entire class system that they are beholden to as if we're still living in feudal Japan. Swiss & Lufthansa serves more meals and at higher quality than JAL. The drinks were also blah. JAL focuses more on their Business Class and First Class Passengers. Even their luggage comes in first."
Pros: "Roomy seats on JAL flights - their actual airplanes. Horrible when they codeshare with american and use American Airlines planes."
Cons: "They have to take the prize for having the absolute slowest customer service in the world. When I booked my tickets, I emailed customer service to make sure I didn’t get a center seat. It took them two months - TWO MONTHS - to email me back, to tell me there was nothing they could do. I also had to be reticketed on my flight from Tokyo to Hanoi. It took them 3 1/2 hours to do this. I had to sit in the airport for 3 1/2 hours to get my ticket changed. Unbelievable. They could’ve chiseled it in stone faster than they issued it."
Pros: "The crew were very polite"
Cons: "No choice of menu and films only very limited choice."
Pros: "Flight attendants are all nice, polite and always smile. Good food and good entertainment."
Cons: "Waited for one and a half hrs before the plane took off, almost an hr went by then they announced some minor problem with engine. Good reason but they had a/c on so cold all these times. Also I would appreciate coffee or some drink while waiting...I guess that's not possible in this case."
Pros: "Efficient and friendly service. Second time flying them, and will continue to fly JAL."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "more movie options!"
Pros: "JAL doesn't disappoint!"
Pros: "We were numb from a long flight over the ocean. Pleasant flight with helpful crew, and it helped that some of them knew English."
Pros: "Nothing I like , when u buy the ticket they're so nice , but after paid they're very bad, never take care of you, u ask them some help, they're can't"
Cons: "They every bad customer service, I never seen before"
Pros: "When I checked in for my connecting flight from Tokyo Narita to New York, the crew said there was no more seat on economy class. She was making sure that I got on the plane by placing me on the premium economy seat. I appreciate the effort and the courtesy of JAL."
Cons: "The meal and dessert were served at the same time. Too much food all at once."
Pros: "JAL has customer service that no other airline comes close to."
Cons: "Nothing, JAL is perfect. I mean it"
Pros: "Food served was actually pretty good."
Cons: "Movie selection, should've had more recent releases instead of flicks from the 90's. Makes for a long flight."
Pros: "Nice people, good food"
Cons: "Old-=fashioned business configuration"
Pros: "Staff was great and plane was clean"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and solicitous and helpful. This is my third trip with JAL and I. Happy about it."
Pros: "Always a pleasure to fly on JAL. Despite a cramped seat in economy, the flight attendants made up for the uncomfortable seat. They are attentive, helpful, and courteous. Time went quickly."
Cons: "Seats are too small for tall travelers."
Pros: "Seat was very comfortable and had many games and movies to keep me preoccupied during the flight."
Cons: "I didn't like that the crew at check-in and the crew on the plane told me different things. The crew at check-in told me I could keep my purse with me, and the crew on the airline told me I had to put it overhead. Please be consistent! Flying is very stressful for me, and I want the staff to make it as stress-free as possible. As for boarding, I wasn't allowed into the gate until an hour before. What really bothered me was that they had already let some people into the gate and shut some other people out. Either let people in or don't. Don't follow the rules halfway because then they won't mean anything. I was very shocked by this and have never experienced this at any airline before. All I wanted to do was sit down and relax at the gate before boarding. If this ever happened to me again, I would not fly with the same airlines. To think that this was a JAL flight, with such a high reputation of customer service, makes me even more wary of booking a flight with JAL. I didn't appreciate being treated that way, and I will not tolerate it if it happens again."
Pros: "Food was pretty good."
Cons: "There were so many people who walk around an aisle but the flight attendant didn't control them. They kept pushing my seat and hit. I was so uncomfortable."
Pros: "Comfortable and spacious for economy class. Very helpful staff."
Cons: "If I have to be picky the movie selection didn't seem great."
Pros: "Everything worked as planned."
Pros: "The flight staff on Japan airlines was great. The meals were excellent, and the flight itself was fairly comfortable."
Cons: "Our flight was rebooked without notification leaving us sitting apart for a 12 hour flight to Japan. This left us with one option of an unexpectedly upgrade in order to sit next to each other"
Pros: "The crew were the nicest group of flight attendants I have ever encountered. The offered assortment of snack during my flight. I got a scented warm hand towel before they service me a meal. They even use real silverware in economy"
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was the temperature of the plane. It was quite hot (felt like 75 degrees inside)"
Cons: "returnning flight was not attended well,so much different from going flight. Going was excellent but returnning was not nice in all face."
Cons: "My seat was not comfortable and it was uncomfortably warm."
Pros: "Service was especially good. Very professional."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Plane not full so had 2 seats to myself. Stewardesses nice but didn’t all speak English."
Cons: "Only got asked for a drink one time. I could have used a snack,but I was trying to sleep so maybe they just didn’t disturb me. Left bright lights on whole trip. No Wi-Fi on this flight available."
Pros: "The crew is attentive and kind, the promptness is the airline, they aren’t afraid to serve you top notch food and dessert"
Cons: "The only thing that soured my trip was on the way back, it was a passenger who was just way overboard disgusting. First of all he takes off his shoes and then his socks and crosses his legs so his barefoot is right next to my tray table. Then he proceeds to unbutton his pants and unbuckle his belt. Reaches down into his nethers and takes a good whiff of his hand. This passenger continually kept encroaching into my seat, either sitting on a portion of my leg or putting his shoulder over my shoulder, even at one point used me as lean on. It was a 9 hour flight of misery... I was definitely uncomfortable for majority of that flight due to the passenger in 40A on flight NH176"
Pros: "Good service"
Pros: "Outstanding customer service, I was especially impressed when the flight attendants would intermittently clean up the restrooms- something that definitely doesn't happen on US airlines. Good food as well."
Cons: "Again, would prefer a larger selection and more change with movie choices."
Pros: "Food, comfort, service. Good comfort for an economy ticket. No complaints. Movies worked great, blankets and pillows provided. I thought good leg room, but I am only 5’4”. But I still get crowded on domestic flights—seems the seats get smaller and closer together on short flights every year. ANA was good service to Japan. Business class and first class looked awesome. Maybe someday."
Pros: "Very good experience with ANA."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "felt Agent's kind care of elder (me) at Airport. Thanks."
Cons: "Full of passengers. Code Share!?"

Cons: "Of course I had a correct USB cable for i ad, I can not chage it."
Pros: "Very kind flight attendants with amazing service!"

Pros: "Great plane Great movies Great seat"
Pros: "We had to come home 2 weeks early due to the virus, and Singapore airlines were brilliant at changing the flights. Even got upgraded to the extra leg room for free"
Cons: "The extra leg room seats were naff, I like getting comfy in a chair and these ones were not. The screen was too far away and the arm rests didn’t move. Also, due to my partner having to swap seats, I was sat on my own next to strangers. They slept the whole way, so the crew never disturbed them meaning I missed out on food and drinks, even when asked"
Cons: "The rebalance was worst I've ever encountered I was actually scared I prayed many times 4 yo get home safely I was not impressed with my last flight n also why were We delayed coming from manila we turn back many times n I had only 50 mins to catch my flight to Perth if we had landed wen we should hv I'd hv time to buy some gifts I'm.glad that Philippines airlines will fly direct yo manila from Perth come March n I'll use them from now on as it's a few times in the years gone that things has happened to me I forgave ur airline but now i not need to as hv other airline to fly n my darling come here 3 or 4 times each year but will use Philippines airlines URS sincerely Trevor frahm"
Pros: "Everything is perfect, the crew services are very warm and professional, I strongly believe that Singapore airlines is the best in world as I tried many airlines but I don’t see like their them, I will strongly recommend and I will be their customer for any flight to Far East inshaallah."

Pros: "Comfortable flight, punctual, helpful crew."

Cons: "The food wasn't that great. Average at best."
Pros: "One of the best flights I’ve been on. The seats are spacious and the crew are very friendly"
Cons: "Reclining seats tend to make me caustaphonic with the limited space"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "What can I say about a flight of this length? Its always an epic journey to go from the US to Asia. However I will say that with Singapore Airlines things are a lot easier.

All round it was a long trip made a lot easier......5 stars."

Staff is always friendly and happy...they really seem to absolutely love their job! Free toiletries in the bathrooms are an extra plus. Whenever there was a change in schedule / plans the captain informed the passengers immediately about what was going on and what would happen next."
Cons: "The only thing that did and probably always will be AWFUL is going thru security at JFK. The T S A officials there are unfriendly, sometimes rude, never smiling and often yelling at you or even little kids or elderly people. We are travelling a lot and no other security staff at any given airport is so unfriendly and harsh. Worst thing about going on a journey."
Pros: "The crew on this flight we amazing had a great flight Thank You"

Cons: "Seats were bit hard without proper head rest.entertainment kiosk was not working."
Cons: "breakfast was terrible"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Aircond isn’t working at seat 60 onwards. Warm. Sweaty."
Pros: "Delayed flight from Shanghai due to air traffic issues, so I had a 10 minute window to make my connection in Singapore. Ground staff was waiting for me with a small car after I disembarked to drive me to the gate. And I somehow made my connection. Excellent service. Obviously my checked bag didn't make it, but I was told in advance and was kept updated before boarding and immediate after I disembarked at my final destination. When I went to the baggage service counter, they were already ready for me, had filled out my paperwork, and just needed an address to confirm the delivery of my suitcase. I'm super impressed to this attention to detail."
Pros: "Staff was the best, always smiling and going beyond expectations to assure you enjoy your flight and I certainly did. Take off was a breeze. Landing a little bumpy but nothing to cry about. I will fly Singapore whenever possible from now on."
Cons: "There was nothing that I didn't like."
Pros: "With 15 and 1/2 hours on the flight ahead, I was dreading the long, tedium of sitting for hours upon hours. But Singapore Airlines made the time fly with friendly service right when you were getting hungry and pleasant assistance when requested. Thank you Singapore Airline Flight Attendants!!"
Pros: "Staff were awesome. given that my wife and son both had food poisoning."

Pros: "Everything is excellent!"
Pros: "The air stewardesses took their time to get back to me about a question I posed to them. It took 2 stewardesses and 3 efforts."
Cons: "Crew rarely walked aisles with water. Gluten free meal was mediocre. Seat was old and uncomfortable. Entertainment options were mediocre."
Pros: "Friendly staff, excellent customer service, great food"
Cons: "Delayed two and a half hours! Scheduled flight to take off at 0010hours was already a no brainer. Taking off at 0330hours is a killer!"
Pros: "Flight arrived earlier than expected and the flight attendants were good and polite."
Pros: "It was a standard flight"
Cons: "did not have my meal preference even though it was on the menu and being offered to others. Screen did not work to watch shows/movies. It was an outdated plane"
Pros: "The food was great!"
Cons: "The announcements coming from the boarding crew were not clear or hardly under stable."
Pros: "Crew and entertainment"

Cons: "Everything. Firstly the flight was delayed, these things happen but nevertheless I end up missing my connecting Qatar flight to Belgrade, put into a horrible little hotel for 24hrs without my bag, no clothes or toiletries. At one point during the flight once everyone had their chairs reclined one hostess told me to not put mine so far back?!?! Then when asked well then person in front of me has to move theirs forward and her response no they don’t. Absolutely shocking. To think I wanted to upgrade to business class. I’m traveling the globe over the next year and thought let me try Qatar but never again with this type of service and how they treat their customers."

Pros: "Friendly crew (didn’t go above or beyond but polite and accommodated to simple requests). Plenty of meals/snacks and drinks offered."

Pros: "It was an ok experience, improved by the head of attendants at the end"

Pros: "I haven't flown with Qatar for several years, but my memories of an exceptional experience were replicated. Fantastic modern aircraft, brilliant crew and great food."
Cons: "Only one minor gripe, the passengers seated behind me talked incessantly, making my attempts to sleep impossible. I asked if there were any ear plugs available, but none could be found. My own fault, I should have packed my own."
Pros: "The food was great with three options for each meal and there were a lot of options for in flight entertainment"
Pros: "Very affordable flights, good value for money. Most of the journey from Sydney to Oslo (via Doha) went qiluite smoothly)."
Cons: "The only thing I didn’t like about the experience was the fact that you can only check in one piece of luggage on economy class, and one very sour individual at the gate when boarding."
Pros: "Crew were great and sincere"
Cons: "Qatar gave problems changing flight for emergency purpose and had produced all documents but they wanted further documentation which could not have access because at,a foreign country. Felt they don't care and it was all to do with money which had to pay."
Pros: "Staff was outstanding"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Thanks"
Pros: "It was comfortable flight with a friendly crew."
Pros: "The crew! Had a very bubbly and friend mostly Filipina crew that were extremely friendly and helpful. Having a nice smile certainly helps with the long flight duration!"
Cons: "Food food food"
Pros: "It was actually on time."
Cons: "They lost my bag and that’s disappointing considering I have my bank account details in that bag. Very disappointed by this"
Pros: "Service was excellent. Check in was efficient & welcoming. Staff was very friendly & helpful."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Nothig"
Cons: "Everythingv"

Cons: "The food"
Pros: "service, cleanliness"
Cons: "seats too narrow, but understandable"
Cons: "15 hours flight no WiFi...!!!!!! Last minute flight time change was sent via email..!!!! Almost 1 hour delay after boarding..!!!"
Pros: "My trip from Beijing to Doha was fine."
Cons: "I didn't like my trip from Dar to Doha nor from Doha to Dar. The plane is too small. The food wasn't good and they ran out of Mango juice both ways. I sat next to someone who had the smelliest feet on earth. Just wasn't pleasant."
Pros: "Great service and food"
Pros: "Always exciting heading into Hamad intl Apt."
Cons: "Small plane heading back into Doha from Dubai. Please change to dreamlimer for the roundtrip. Also, yes we get it, its a short flight. But not all of us are good at making conversation with strangers. You have a quality name, keep with the program" give out headsets, they cost nothing to make in China!"
Pros: "Left and arrived on time, meals were above expectations."
Cons: "Difficult boarding procedure."
Pros: "SPECIALLY THE CREW SERVICE EXCELLENT"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "There was nothing to like. Considering my travel experience with Qatar & middle eastern airlines they've gone worst. The aircrafts need to be upgraded especially on long flights. Food was horrible and so was the entertainment. Would not recommend or fly Qatar again."
Pros: "Liked the raw vegetarian meal as it was perfectly plain. Attendants also very solicitous and went up and down several times with water after the meal."
Cons: "Seats are small and huge line for the toilet, but that is the nature of the plane and not Qatar's problem. Boarding was only good because passengers did not cooperate adn stood up when they were asked repeatedly not to."
Pros: "On time, good crew, easy connection."
Cons: "Hard and tight seats for such long night flight."
Pros: "Qatar airways 3 hrs short flight was spectacular at all levels"
Pros: "Journey was ok."
Cons: "Flight was on runway for more than 45 mins. I had to run to catch my connecting flight. If the flight had to wait then why on runway after landing. Anyways I barely caught my connecting flight."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Mashed connection"

Great crew and great food. No self service/own device entertainment and that’s not acceptable these days

Pros: "Good crew, helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Food is not as good as some other airlines I’ve been on."
Pros: "The crew were very professional. There was a very difficult passenger who was very rude to the stewards and I thought they coped really well. I was sorry to see them treated in this way."
Cons: "Multiple technical issues on each leg of the flight for both airlines. Took 1.5 hours to deboard the aircraft on final leg of journey"
Cons: "A delay due to an electrical storm prevented us from taking off for over an hour which we had to wait to end on the plane."
Cons: "Business Class Seating had 3 seats in middle Refurbished 747 had new seats, but still felt like an old plane with awkward layout"
Cons: "Better time management."
Pros: "Really cheerful and friendly crew."
Cons: "They changed my seat just before boarding. Front lavatories are not usable by passengers behind the curtain."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "I still think it makes more sense to board the seats in the back of the plane before those further forward. It is difficult to get past the people who stand in the aisle or take forever to try to put their bag in the overhead bin."
Pros: "Clean"
Cons: "Freezing cold temperature Too small seats Food dropped on travel partner Poor choices of food and snacks Gone down since last time years ago"
Pros: "The crew's efficiency and friendliness"
Cons: "Having to fly to Germany to come to San Diego"
Cons: "Initial flight was cancelled! New flight was delayed."
Cons: "I havent gotten on a flight yet."
Cons: "Manchester Airport couldn’t organise a bus to take us off the plane. Stuck on a landed plane for ever."
Pros: "Everything except that cookie!"
Cons: "I liked everything except the cookie. It reminded me of the low quality supermarket American cookies, way too sweet and flavorless. They used to give little sandwiches, excellent in quality!!! A cookie is good too, but a better one would do a great difference! It was early morning, who would eat a sugary chocolate chip cookie for breakfast? But otherwise, I would fly with Lufthansa again in a heartbeat!!! Thank you!!!!!!"
Pros: "Service. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "Seat in front was broken (did not hold in place reclining) and my seat was broken too. I was able to change seat but 2 seats broken in consecutive rows is not good as it makes you think what else may be broken and what kind of accidents could occur if seats are not even checked by crew."
Cons: "Didn’t like the breakfast at all"
Pros: "I didn’t go see above"
Pros: "Right on time, smooth flight, crew at the gate and onboard were super. Food was fine and plane was clean."
Cons: "The only problem with comfort is when the person in Front of me reclined the seat. I could not see my screen well Or get in and out of my seat well and had to recline my own seat in order to do so."
Pros: "Pleasant cabin crew."
Cons: "Narrow, hard seats that will bring back your greatest dentist memories. Unappetizing menu choices, such that I chose not to partake. Nickel and dime add-on for wifi. Seriously? Thousands of dollars for business class, and you want another 13 Euro for wifi? Not bloody likely. I usually fly SAS business class, and based on this experience with Lufthansa, I will go straight back to SAS. They offer better service, better menu choices, and first class seating for the same price. Easy decision."
Pros: "Not go your a day off"
Cons: "Your programmers don't know what they're doing"
Pros: "Nice crew, The flight was on time."
Cons: "Food was sub-standard with very limited drink varieties."
Pros: "Our family was able to all sit together, even though we were not able to select our seats."
Cons: "I wasn’t able to select my seats when booking the flight, but they put us all t"
Cons: "I gave up my seat to permit an elderly couple to sit together There was an open aisle seat forward from where I was to sit and was not allowed to sit there, instead I sat i na middle seat One good deed did not another"
Cons: "How Lufthansa is not ashamed to serve dog food to people who order kosher food."
Pros: "The service couldn’t have been better! Constant supply of water, the food was good, and they have champagne in economy - always a win for me!"
Cons: "Sold me upgraded bulkhead seat and emergency row on way back. But given regular seats for both flights. Plane change on one flight and they upgraded family to exit row for other. No acommodation from flight attendants. They did offer empty "upgraded" premium economy seats for extra $300 on top of what I already paid. seats so narrow & thin (to squeeze more seats In), my hips hurt for final 3 hours. Miserable experience. Lufthansa fails in customer service."
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "Great customer services, Very outstanding staff."
Pros: "The chicken, potatos and spinach dish was the best. I like that they have you a pillow, cover, and headphones."
Cons: "At first the movies worked then they did a reset and my audio stopped working and they did another reset when I let an attendant know about it and it still didn't work. They never came back for me to let them know about the problem."
Pros: "Great food! Attentive staff, comfy seats."
Pros: "The water and small coffee cake was nice to have on this connecting flight."
Cons: "First, I had issues with checking into my flight online, which lead to me having to print my boarding pass at the airport. Since I had a separate flight with Eurowings that sent me from Munich to Paris, which was not connected with this flight, I came in directly into the airport and no where near a Kiosk to check in or print out my ticket/boarding pass. I explained to numerous employees my situation and they casually exclaimed I should be able to make it in. Once I got into the airport I could barely get through security since I did not have my boarding pass. I kept explaining I don't have a boarding pass because I could not check into my flight to obtain it. Then when they finally let me through with only 10 minutes to spare before my flight's gate would close, I finally reached the boarding desk only to be told I had to wait because out of the two men who were scanning boarding passes, they were too busy to help me. I then had to explain three times that I had already paid for and booked my flight, however, I could not check in online and was having an issue with an error that stated I was missing information, even though there was nothing marked in red or anything marked to edit, so each time I tried it denied me. I also tried calling for customer support and did not get a hold of anyone because the lines were too busy. After explaining all of this to the man at boarding, he made me wait an additional 5 minutes before helping me check into the flight and print out my boarding pass. I was treated like a stand-by customer and I did not appreciate it since I paid for this flight and tried to check in 24 hours prior. I was expecting much more from Lufthansa, as my boyfriend recommended this flight company to me, but I was extremely disappointed in so many ways it makes me question whether I want to fly this airline again for future trips abroad."
Pros: "Great service, crew attentiveness and economy comfort. Movie and music selection was good."
Cons: "Slightly larger food portion"
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: "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: "Excellent crew service. Nice man from Italy who spoke Italian, German, Spanish and English. I cannot recall his name (Gian....??) but he was wonderful. Helpful, professional and congenial. Thank you."
Cons: "Bathrooms were well ventilated, very strong smell."
Pros: "nice personality"
Pros: "Everything was wonderful. I'll definitely choose Lufthansa again!"
Cons: "The plane was extremely small and uncomfortable. There were only two lavoratories for 60+ people, the other two being reserved only for the 10+ people in first class. As a result, throughout the whole flight there was a long waiting line in the plane's aisle, causing the crew to complain angrily in German, thinking we wouldn't understand what they're saying, because they couldn't go through easily."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and the plane was somewhat new."
Cons: "Boarding is always a cluster (it is a mad dash for the gate no matter what section is called) Absolutely no entertainment was offered. Passengers' seats in front of you can almost be reclined into your lap, forcing you to recline your sit into someone else's lap to have some room."
Pros: "An extremely professional, attentive staff and flight crew"
Pros: "From Munich to Toronto, it was great, especially being seated where I wanted, the window. I was able to watch great movies too, and during a 9hr flight, thats really nice."
Cons: "The food could be better. Too salty. But it is better than nothing and it was hot! So that was good."
Pros: "the crew was good"
Cons: "the seating was cramped. could use more leg room. The food was average."
Pros: "Premium economy seats, also premium economy is located very well in front of the plane."
Cons: "Food quality was aweful. Not sure why Lufthansa can't train the catering in Shanghai better. Worst vegetarian food ever."
Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Disappointed overall. United Airlines took over here and you could immediately tell the difference."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, no food only snack which is typically crushed pretzels. I typically never fly United because of their service, food etc very poor"
Cons: "Flight was overbooked and we were not sure to the last minute whether all our party members would be on the flight. Our seat arrangements were also cancelled."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and took good care of everybody in general."
Cons: "On the way back from Munich the gluten free bread served was not edible! I would recommend to change it to something more appetizing. It's been used for way too many years! On the LA bound plane the GF bun was wonderful! Thank you though for caring to serve GF food! Not the most comfortable seats for your back in the economy class."
