Pros: "Aircraft was much better than the flight from US, food was great. The only thing I wished for was more movies."
Cons: "Lack of movies"
Cons: "Food options on both legs were terrible. On the first leg, only one of the three options was actually available. I understand that you have to account for varied decisions by customers, but only having one of the three listed options when you're just half way through the cabin is pretty weak. Disappointed that entertainment options hadn't changed from the previous month."
Cons: "No lie flat seats."
Pros: "It was a good flight. I'd give it 4 of 5 stars."
Pros: "Exceptional Service Great Food New Planes Overall excellent"

Cons: "Nothing to report."
Cons: "Without internet"
Cons: "Plane was delayed and boarding was a bit confusing at the start but then quickly fixed"
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours late to take off, putting us very close to the time of the connecting flight to NY. Due to that we were rushed in Istanbul and our luggage was not transferred."
Cons: "Change the mousse flavor, please. The hummus was terrible."
Pros: "Everything...the food was delicious, the staff was gracious and always went the extra mile."
Cons: "Chairs spaces"
Pros: "Sleeping accommodations, storage, crew attentiveness in business class was outstanding. 5he business lounge in Istanbul was the best ever. Great airline."
Cons: "They lost my baggage and everything I had was in that bag!"
Pros: "As usual the best"
Pros: "The transfer gates are always further away and there is no staff at the gates to help you. It's always a mad dash to catch your connecting flight. Turkish airport should consider transferring passengers with close connections through a faster line. Also, the security screening between flights doesn't offer any priority for passengers with tight connections"
Pros: "After the first 2 1/2 hour flight this 777 had pretty comfortable seats for this 13 plus hour plane ride."
Cons: "Maybe charge just $10.00 more and serve a little bit better food."
Pros: "Crew and in flight meal and refreshment services were great."
Pros: "I was very impressed that I am already looking to travel again with the airline on my next travel!"
Pros: "Boarding started 40 minutes later than stated on my boarding pass. Had to take a bus to the airplane and the ride was not exactly short - I'm pretty sure the plane was parked at the very other end of the airport. When we finally took off it was exactly an hour later than scheduled. That's the first time I've had a delay longer than the actual flight."
Pros: "Big plane"
Cons: "Boarding process was a zoo. Notificationso on loud speaker every 5 minutes waking you up"
Cons: "Mi sa furat din bagajj !!!!!!!!"
Pros: "My experience of flying on Turkish Airline was amazing form beginning to end everything was perfect. The crew were very professional and the food quality was the best that I have had on an airline."
Cons: "Passport control"
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "Lack of air conditioning made it hard to breathe coupled with cramp seating made it unbearable"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the first meal was great! Staff was friendly and the bathroom was VERY clean and nice."
Cons: "I didn't like the multiple, repetitive announcements. I would suggest that once the guest has picked their language preference on the screen, they then only hear announcements once in their preferred language. Also, our first transfer flight with Turkish allowed for us to carry our personal camera, but then on our main connecting flight we were told that we couldn't have it as a carry on. We would have stowed it in checked baggage had we been previously told. This was incredibly frustrating."
Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"
Pros: "Food from Cape Town to Istanbul was very tasty and juicy. Yummy."
Cons: "We were in business. Food and service quality has gone downhill since last year. Cabin temperature is very warm. Staffs are not friendly. They spent a lot of time chatting in the galley talking and eating off food serving trays. Yikes!"
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "The food on Turkish is excellent, and it seems they come through every hour to offer water, coffee or tea between meals. The entertainment is also the best system, with the most options I have seen on any airline. And the seats are much more comfortable than most planes- the headrests bend so much, you can actually sleep without your head rolling off the headrest!"
Pros: "There is nothing bad that I can say about the trip. From the hot towels to refresh yourself to the friendly crew to the food. The entertainment choices were good and easy to use. I would defiantly fly with them again."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and interactive. Entertainment was preety good."
Cons: "long waiting queues for checkin even if you checked in online."
Pros: "I used the prime lounge in Istanbul and when it was time to go, I was able to practically walk on the plane without any wait. The seats were comfy and didn't have a ton of legroom but it wasn't bad. The staff we're friendly and helpful. The in-flight entertainment had a pretty impressive selection and had one of the best-designed interfaces I've seen so far (and I've ridden a variety of airlines). Last and most important, the food was hands down the BEST I've had on a plane. Turkish is killing it, they're my new go-to airline!"
Cons: "I really can't complain about anything, even if I try! Maybe the touch screen sensitivity on the entertainment console seemed a little off, but that's just nitpicking"
Pros: "The food was delicious."
Cons: "The wait times were ridiculous and always off schedule. From the beginning of the trio to the end of the trio there was consitency in going off schedule and being forced to stand in lines for hours. I would not fly Turkish again."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, roomy, good customer services on the plane"
Cons: "One concern - as we were landing and then taxiing, people were standing up and getting baggage out of the overhead compartments before the plane had stopped moving. It felt dangerous. I would suggest having the flight crew make an announcement so people could be safe and remain seated until the airplane comes to a final stop/no longer moving."
Pros: "Overall an excellent airline. Young fleet of planes. Curious service and crew. Excellent selection of enertainment"
Cons: "Seat pitch is 31", too small for 6'4" male. Food during this trip and the inbound flights was nom-edible"
Pros: "Delicious meals, friendly crew, good selection of entertainment."
Pros: "Great flight, crew and experience."
Cons: "Breakfast selection was a bit subpar"
Pros: "I like the entertainment system with lots of movies chooses."
Cons: "Leg space a nighrmare!! Was uncomfortable for all the 13 hrs of the flight. Terrible experience"
Pros: "It was a 12 or 13 hour flight and except for sitting too much we were never uncomfortable. The service level made me think we were back in the 80's. Hot towels, attentive service, tons of food and free drinks. There was actually one meal that we would have eaten even if it wasn't on a plane. They gave out full size blankets and pretty fluffy pillows. (I bring our own anymore, because you never know if you will get one on most airlines, and if you do they're usually useless). Their entertainment system was amazing. We caught up on all the recently released movies that we've wanted to see for FREE! If only Netflix had this quality of movie offerings. They had fresh flowers in the huge bathrooms. It's that type of attention to detail you just really don't see anymore."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing that could actually be changed."
Cons: "I wanted to upgrade called Kayak that out me through to VAYAMA that then called Turkish airlines. Took hours in the phone (international call) they then told me I can't upgrade (payed upgrade) because the business is FULL, guess what??? Business was EMPTY"
Pros: "Service when it was done"
Cons: "Infrequent service Crowded Entertainment system bad"
Cons: "They provide excellent service. Me and my wife love it."
Pros: "The food and crew service"
Cons: "The leg room is really limited in the economy cabin"
Pros: "Enjoyed the flight, airports, service."
Pros: "Again, service was awesome business class cabin temperature should be lowered as it was hot."
Pros: "Friendly people , correct timing , good prices"
Cons: "The chairs didn,t go well for sleeping And we had 12 hrs to do ."
Pros: "God overall"
Cons: "Your food is terrible!!"
Pros: "The price can't be beat for a quality, national carrier. The next highest price for my series of flights was $600 more and would have taken twice as long. Good food, good alcoholic beverages, great movies, and a nice crew too."
Cons: "Turkish Airlines was delayed over an hour. It seems like slight delays do happen with this airline; however, you do get what you pay for and I can't really complain much over a one hour delay given the ticket price."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive, complete punctuality, everything of high quality."
Cons: "no information o.n frequent flier program"
Pros: "Everything possible was done to help make this my best flight ever. 12 hrs is a long time on a plane but I don't see how it could have been any better. Good food. Attentive staff. Great entertainment options. Plenty of leg room. I'm 6'1". Boeing 777. Great plane."
Pros: "Nice goody bags and special treatment for the kids, and thoughtful that they brought kid-friendly headphones. All the comforts the airlines used to give for free are still there on Turkish, with no extra charges for food/checked bags, etc. Great food, they got our special vegetarian meals correct (as opposed to a big hassle on another airline). Very comfortable flight."
Pros: "You really get great treatment in economy. Food is good, no nickel-and-diming for drinks, inflight entertainment package is very very good - just a great experience."
Pros: "Food was great, wish gluten free had been an option!"
Cons: "The movie selection was excellent. However, were those movies pirated? They had unusual openings that made it appear they were non-copyrighted versions. Not enough leg room."
Cons: "Getting to Venice on time. Our late arrival cost me a 90 euro shutle."
Pros: "The flight attendants were all helpful and pleasant. The seats were comfortable. We were provided with plenty of liquids."
Cons: "The landing was pretty tough and we took off almost a half hour late."
Pros: "Very friendly gate attendants helped us fix the problem that our frequent flyer number had not been entered on the boarding pass. This may have been because of the booking co., Just Fly."
Cons: "Would have liked more seat options, like when I book on Delta's website. Didn't have enough advance warning."
Pros: "Food and entertainment was good"
Cons: "The bathroom I used was disgusting."
Pros: "Boarding, friendliness of staff"
Pros: "Everything was easy and smooth."
Pros: "Anything from free WiFi, entertainment, leg room, commentary drinks and snacks. Great service!"
Cons: "Frontier canceled the flight. Delta delayed the flight that I rescheduled. One of the worst traveling experiences I have had in a long time. My day started at 3:30am. I’m just now going to my hotel at 12:40 am"
Pros: "Gate crew in DEN provided free refreshments at the gate during a 2+ hour flight delay."
Cons: "The aircraft used for this flight comes from LGA as part of an out-and-back. Delays can be expected if there is an earlier departure delay in NYC. On 6/30, this aircraft was 2+ hours late while all other airlines (United, Southwest and Frontier) were all on-time."
Pros: "The staff was polite and snacks were good (healthy options)."
Cons: "Nothing was terrible, but due to the short flights I assume they don’t worry about having planes with entertainment available."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "In SLC they boarded by row numbers and not zones. Weird..."
Cons: "Was unclear which zone was boarding. Legroom was comprised when passenger in immediate row ahead reclined seat early in flight."
Cons: "Engine problems-2 hour delay"
Pros: "The fact that there was a screen for movie selections and a charging port for my phone and the flight attendants were super nice"
Pros: "Good flight crew"
Cons: "Delayed due to mechanical issues. For 3 hours. No offers for free drink or wi fi. When we finally land we were on the runway for half hour."
Pros: "Everyone was fairly friendly"
Cons: "Cramped foot room"
Cons: "Bags never arrived at the listed baggage claim. After 45 min, I saw bags on a different claim station and I notified everyone standing around. BUT, I filed a claim with Delta and was immediately given 2500 miles, as guaranteed!"
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Good entertainment"
Cons: "Going to Denver was delayed and now return trip delayed We were give 3 separate reasons. Poor communication. Just telling me a flight will be delayed is not communication. Lack of a free snack was disappointing. May have to rethink flying Delta next time."
Pros: "Great people and crew early arrival nice passengers"
Cons: "Poor Delta DEN counter agent experience. Name on ticket didnt match Delta profile name nor TSA [rofile name. Delta counter agent would do nothing, except blame TSA. Would not check ticket name vs profile name. Happened two consecutive flights. Flight tomorrow morning has no TSA Pre clearance on boarding pass. This will be three consecutive flights. Also seated me next to a person who needed 2 seats to himself. Please never seat me next to a passenger who cannot fit in their own seat. I am switching to SWA."
Cons: "The crew forgot to turn the heater on in -3°F creating a situation where the lavatory water lines froze. This caused a two hour delay which made me miss the second leg. Because I missed the second leg I was put on the very last flight out of ATL and got to spend Xmas eve in the airport."
Pros: "On two of the legs of the trip they notice I was a tall person with long legs and upgraded me to seats with more leg room!! I didn't even ask. Thank you."
Cons: "On the way back there were open seats with extra leg room and I asked the gate attendant if it was possible to switch my seat to one with more room and they said they only could if I paid extra."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "The Entertainment sucked. Again I was sitting in comfort class which in theory should buy you more comfort and better entertainment. There was a ton of movies from the 90s and the same movie selection from about 6 months ago when I traveled with them. Also, what is going on, with having to use your own cell phone to watch movies on the plane? Whatever happened to the screens in the backseat of the front seat? I ended up with neck pain from trying to watch a movie on my phone. Delta has become very cheap. It is going into some serious decline."
Cons: "Let me just say that I’m a loyal Delta costumer until now. The flight attendants (the two women) were an absolute nightmare. They were so rude and condescending. I was carrying with me my service dog and a bag containing an expensive medication (it couldn’t go on the top bin). Despite being in the comfort class and having the seat next to me empty, we were tight for space. The flight attendants were unreasonable and forced me to put my medication on the top bin despite the fact I had told them it was extremely delicate, that it that to go upright, and that I needed to keep it with me. They did not listen and pressured me into giving them the medication. The medication could have easily gotten broken. Thankfully it didn’t but this is no way to treat a human being."
Pros: "Entertainment system is awesome and similar to what I usually see only on international flights."
Pros: "Ran smoothly, typical flight, everything was as to be expected. Everyone was polite and courteous."
Cons: "Tight seats, boarding process was a bit lengthy, and we hit some turbulence (obviously beyond anyone's control). The pilot and crew handled it well."
Pros: "What a city.. Unique for hell sure..."
Pros: "It's a nice, comfortable flight with plenty of entertainment options."
Cons: "The coffee on board is lousy, but I'm not sure that is much of a surprise."
Pros: "We purchased economy tickets in Delta. With these tickets you don't know where you are sitting until you get to the airport. Well, we lucked out and got the Plus seats! We got free alcoholic drinks, and big plush seats! We left right on time and got there early! Overall a great experience!"
Pros: "Great,I loved it!"
Pros: "Everything else fine."
Cons: "Made me check my bag - even though ther was plenty of overhead bin space."
Pros: "I didn't like anything because the fly leat 3 hours"
Pros: "First we had a mechanical after boarding. I was rerouted through Atlanta. That flight is now delayed by 2hours. I then had to reroute to West Palm Beach instead of Ft Lauderdale. I will leave 9 hours after my original flight time and arrive 8 hours later. Just ridiculous"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The cabin crew serving the main cabin were exceptional. They were efficient, kind and FUN. We were an hour late leaving and 2/3 of the plane was worried about tight connections. They handled it with grace giving each person their departing gate and asking everyone to let a gentleman off with a 10 minute connection. They made the flight memorably enjoyable."
Cons: "Being an hour late isn't ideal and I understand that it wasn't their fault (the plane was late arriving into Denver. Those things happen. They still goto people to Detroit in time to make connections--barely."
Pros: "Smooth ride. Delta got everything right from takeoff to landing."
Pros: "Upgraded to first class"
Cons: "No entertainment system, no power outlet...for first class this is disgraceful"
Cons: "I drove 5 hours to get to the airport and unfortunately ended up delayed because of traffic and slow shuttles from parking. I arrived 1 hour before the flight, but security was so slow I didn't get to the gat until 10 minutes before arrival. There were no gate agents present and despite banging on the gateway door and other Delta agents at the adjacent gate, no one helped me. I can only surmise that they had already given away our seats, which were award tickets, GAINED BY BEING A LOYAL DELTA CUSTOMER. The gate agents were unapologetic and useless at rebooking, and I bought a ticket from Southwest instead. As i was trying to get to my sister's wedding, and repeatedly told the agents this, their behavior was particularly abominable. DELTA, YOU'VE LOST A LOYAL CUSTOMER."
Cons: "Seats too close - I'm not that tall and my knees were jammed against the seat in front of me."
Pros: "Was able to get on a flight after ours was cancelled. Delta was in scramble mode and their gate staff worked hard ot deal with a frustrated flying populaiton"
Cons: "After paying for first class round trip airfare, we were given seats in coach in the rear of the plane, in spite of empty seats (plenty of them) in first class and economy comfort."
Pros: "Plane was clean and staff were friendly"
Cons: "The snack options were quite average"
Pros: "Flight attendants were lovely"
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "Most of the food on the menu was not available"
Pros: "Excellent customer service. That doesn't seem to happen too often with airlines. Delta has been outstanding."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Flight took off on time and arrived about 30 minutes early."
Pros: "on time travel care in treating my visitors from Kenya Africa"
Pros: "The flights back to anchorage were much better than the flights out of anchorage. They were on time and everyone was very helpful."

Cons: "I had no room to move and my legs were stuck"
Pros: "Only 15 mins."
Cons: "Seats were tight."
Pros: "Good food, service, and entertainment"
Cons: "The seats are not very cushioned"
Cons: "Seats can be better."
Pros: "It was on time and got me where I needed to go."
Cons: "The crew often bashed my wife's elbow with their trolleys. I am 6'2" and I could not sit with my legs straight in front of me. There is no leg room and the seats do not recline very far. The food was repulsive. They ran out of vegetarian options (my wife is a vegetarian) and what we did eat turned our stomachs."
Cons: "On-time departure and arrival, clean and well-maintained aircraft, good crew, decent meals (2), very tight seating in Economy without much comfort."
Pros: "Great crew! Excellent customer service with a smile!"
Cons: "Not sure how, but the food could be a bit better."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable, food was good."
Cons: "The woman seated next to me was the mother of one of the flight attendants. She had terrible body odor that nearly brought me to vomiting—and this was a 10 hour flight. She was also brought all kinds of amenities from the attendants from the 1st class cabin—not really appropriate."
Pros: "Plane was in good condition."
Cons: "Seats are lousy and armrests so hard my arms go numb. Screaming babies for hours without stopping ."
Cons: "My flt from DEN was delayed so I missed my connection - it didn't happen."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "The service from the flight attendants was wonderful."
Cons: "The seats are horrible without any lumbar support nor sufficient cushion for the seat. It leaves you sore all over. If the person in front lays back, they will be hitting your knees. The food for dinner was ok but the breakfast was horrible. Plain eggs with inedible spinach and tomatoes."
Pros: "Staff was very responsive and quick to disperse food and beverages."
Cons: "I didn't care for the breakfast. The eggs tasted like the chicken and rice from the meal for dinner."
Cons: "I have been transatlantic for forty years on various carriers. Without a doubt this was my worst flying experience ever."
Pros: "Lufthansa service is better than any us carrier"
Cons: "They didn’t track my luggage Lost bag for two days"
Cons: "Flight was delayed twice."
Pros: "This flight is usually fully booked but there happened to be an empty seat next to mine which was much appreciated"
Pros: "I like the Aircaraft - A350-900 and service"
Cons: "Plane was HOT"
Pros: "Slept like a baby with no interruptions."
Pros: "Flight attendants were helpful without waking up passengers wjo wanted to sleep."
Pros: "Lufthansa is extremely efficient, and the staff is very helpful all while being cheerful and kind. The planes are new and clean, everything was a notch above typical economy carriers. Well done!"
Cons: "Limited choice of types of meal - no vegetarian option."
Cons: "We were charged a rebooking fee by Lufthansa when customs searched luggage causing us to miss connecting flight"
Pros: "Crew worked very hard to accommodate us."
Cons: "Was seated in a section with many noisy infants. I could not sleep or even hear the entertainment system sometimes. Not the airline's fault. People should know better than to travel with infants. I felt sorry for the crew."
Pros: "Awesome entertainment options, great dinner everything was yummy. Nice flight attendant"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, breakfast was horrible except for fruit salad."
Pros: "The crew's hospitality was exceptional in all areas. Best flight ever."
Cons: "They were helpful, kind, and courteous and above all, friendly."
Cons: "Seats are small, no entertainment, food was below average."
Pros: "the crew are exellent"
Pros: "First time flying this airlines. The seats were comfortable and spacious. The entertainment options were excellent and the food service was regular and consistent."
Pros: "Interesting the bathroom downstairs...then asking people to not form lines on the stairs makes the process a little more complicated...if a person has mobility problems, which restroom should they use?"
Cons: "The boarding process was confusing. Lack of clear signs and announcements didn't help to form lines. People just went to the gates after families, handicapped, vets, etc..passed the gates, business and first. Improving that process by forming ordered lines would help. Entertainment presented movies that are old and have been dysplayed on flights for years. Entertainment in general is poor. Seating not as expected! I chose my seat online and once on the plane I found out the organization of the seats was different than the one displlayed online. I chose an aisle sea on a 3 seat row and I ended up on a 4 seat row and squeezed in between two other passengers. The seats are "growing" smaller and smaller, and the shape and mobility of the chairs makes them uncomfortable. On my row there were 3 screens installed on the ahead seats, and my screen was by 3/4 in front of the passenger on my right. That made difficult controlling the screen function with me stretching my harm over the other passenger's face. I payed $2,000 for that flight in economy. $2,000 for an economy class is not cheap! And you don't offer a great experience. Either lower the price or improve the overall experience."
Pros: "The overall feeling of this flight was 'relaxed'...after getting over the fact, that this was a huge (two story) airplane. Short flight from Denver to Frankfurt...only 8 hours:)"
Cons: "I would have loved to be offered eye shades and ear plus, since most passengers watched movies and i wanted to sleep:)."
Pros: "Flight was on time comfortable good crew clean and upbeat"
Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."
Pros: "Lufthansa certainly stands out above ALL American carriers"
Cons: "The crew we had was very impatient and irritated quickly. The flighy attendent name was Jorge. Starting at the beggining of the flight before we took of I asked him about the head phones. One child had one on tye chair and I asked him if its suppose to be on the seat or given later on. He said it will be passed later and then with a patronizing manner he gave another head phone set and said: "I guess we havw an emergency". On the flight, every time he with the food and drinks he just stood there next to me talking over my head with the passenger begind me. Very uncomfortable, especially when it happens 6 or 7 times. When asking what drink we wanted ( the first time), i replied apple and orange juicewith no ice. He replied, with a patronizing manner "this it European company, not American company. Here we don't put ive if you do not ask for it".The incident that bother me the most is one that involved my kids also. My daughter (3 years old) was a bit scared of the flight, tired and did not want to sit on her chair. We tried to keek her on the chair buy she started crying laying down on the floor infront of our seats. Jorge the flight attendant saw her and told me to put her on the seat. Not in a manner I expect out of soneone in the service industry. I told him we are working on it and we will have her on the chair as soon as we can. When I said that he got irritated and a bit aggressive. For no reason the situation became hostile. The flight attendent on the other side (do not know his name). Can over and asked us what we needed amd if we need help. I told the other flight attendant we need 5 minutes and he said OK. After a few minutes she calmed down. Anotger passenger asked Jorge what beer it is and he replied, with contempt, " its German beer, its good"."

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Lack of leg room!!! After my bicycle box was inspected they failed to secure my bike the way I had it in the box. Bike was flipping around in box. Bent rear brake calipers. Bent brake hoods. Rear skewers were uncoupled. No way to treat a $10,000 bike! Very upset!"
Pros: "I've flown on many different airlines since I was 10 years old and hands down this Lufthansa flight was the best and smoothest flight I have ever experienced. First of all, the plane was very comfortable and had good leg room. The flight staff were all extremely courteous and attentive. There was one point where I was reading in the dark and the crew member asked if I wanted the light turned on to read! Normally I don't sleep on flights, and the same crew member asked if I wanted ice cream since I don't feel like sleeping. The crew seemed to have this magic ability to make the flight more comfortable without the passenger having to even think about it, or try to ask for extra service. All of the crew were just very outstanding and organized throughout the entire flight, they were all generally very helpful and kind. By the time I got off the 14 hour flight, I didn't feel even the slightest bit tired or anxious, I was able to spend time with my friends in Budapest upon landing and stay out till 2 am without having to sleep or rest because the flight was so good."
Pros: "The process of helping me to get on the connecting flight on time - a person led all those making this particular connecting flight to a bus and then straight to the gate. A very smart way to ensure we didn't stress or have to find the gate ourselves. Very impressive"
Cons: "Rude (American) passengers not keeping the "curtain down", when it was time to rest, and being very chatty. Also baby crying, but this is inevitable, it happened to all of us, when we had small babies."

Cons: "Seat (43A) in economy class in Airbus 330 is not great for oversea flight unlike I flew in LH 747-400 in the past, it does not fit 6+ ft tall people. I could not stretch my legs at all. My knee keep hitting next seat at front of me. Hello Lufthansa, are you listening?"

Cons: "Seats unocomfortable, food could have been better!"
Cons: "The food was very bad, very unpleasing. The quantity of the meal was the same as that of a kids meal. I had ordered asian vegetarian meal. My first meal contained no more than 4 tablespoons of Rice. thank god I carried some food with me. Very disappointed with lufthansa service."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, food was good"

Cons: "British AIrways could have checked our bags through from Denver to Paris....after all it was British Airways to British Airways, but they made us check only to London, retrieve bags carry them to another terminal recheck them for what Simon the BA ticket writer was nothing but pure error by British"
Cons: "Baggage delayed on arrival"
Cons: "I am a 5’8 woman- pretty slim. I had a window seat in the main cabin. I barely fit! But the guy in the isle was bigger and had to wedge himself into his seat. As a result, I couldn’t leave my seat for the entire 9 hour flight. Come on BA! Have some compassion! These long flights need bigger seats."
Pros: "The departures and arrivals were on time."
Pros: "Easy boarding, on-time departure, clean aircraft, friendly crew, decent food, free drinks."
Pros: "Despite having a delay in Denver, we were able to arrive on time. The crew was very friendly in greeting us as we boarded the plane"
Cons: "The boarding process was hampered by too many people putting too much carry on luggage in the overhead bins. Many put things in the overhead bins that could have been put under the seat. It didn’t seem like the crew was paying too much attention to this. In general the crew was pleasant, but there didn’t appear to be much sincerity in the pleasantries."
Pros: "I like to fly BA because the crews ( and I assume the maintenance) are top notch"
Cons: "Tired old 747. Needs an upgrade. Packed in like sardines on an old plane that shows it age. Should have flown Norwegian. Major delay caused me to miss my connections though the BA staff were all over it."
Pros: "Simple. Arrived (late) to my destination(s) in one piece. Pleasant flight crew."
Cons: "Expected more for my money...In flight services (movies) screens were very small and hard to see. No charging outlets for phones. Flights were delayed. No sense of urgency mentality? (Don’t get me started on the London airport experience)."

Pros: "Boarding went fast."
Cons: "Too tight, not possible to sleep a little bit."
Pros: "Nothing to special comparing with other first class"

Pros: "Staff are friendly, accomodating for an unaccompanied child with me, upgraded me and helped to support the extra baggage needs"
Cons: "Old, dirty planes with bad enterainment systems and mediocre food and drink offerings. With the price of a ticket more than Emirates, KLM and other airlines, always really suprised the overall crappy hardware, infrastructure on planes etc. When can we get a decent plane to fly the long haul flights. And an actual entertainment system like to competitors?"

Cons: "IFE was not good the equipment is very old and selection is limited"
Cons: "The seats on these flights are poor. As well as being narrow, there are bars on either side that dig in to your sides. My ongoing one hour domestic flight had more comfortable seats. Fod choice poor. Chicken Curry or Cheese/Tomato Lasagna. If I want a vegetarian meal I'll order one beforehand. Give me two meat options. This isn't the first time I've noticed this. Is it cost cutting? Seems like it to me. Not impressed."
Pros: "Very courteous attendants"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "Crew seemed to be "just getting through their day" simply going through the motions."
Pros: "Very little."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. The seats are uncomfortable and too small for even normal size male. Food was disgusting. Staff were very nice and helpful if asked. I think all the space and comfort were in buisiness and first class. Economy class is still paying for a ticket, make up most of the passengers and deserves better. Getting into a seat was like getting into a straight jacket."

Cons: "That plane was so gross. The upholstery was stained and frayed. It was also insanely small. Holy cow!"
Cons: "food was not good."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. Then they bumped us out of the seats we had reserved. Made it just in time for our connection. Then they bumped us from that flight. Others were given generous compensation for that bump. However we were given nothing. At least they us we could rest in the BA lounge because I am elderly and disabled and we would have a 9 hour wait. Got to the lounge and we were not listed in the system. So we were denied entrance. We will have have spent 2 nights on a plane and 36 hours instead of one night and 16 hours. Rotten way to depend your 50th anniversary."
Pros: "not much"
Cons: "5.5 hours delay"
Pros: "I loved the legroom in the emergency seat I had and the service was top notch. The food and food choices was also really nice and the wine served with dinner was great."

Pros: "What a different experience in relation to last week!"
Pros: "Wonderful customer service and hot meal was a lovely treat!!"
Cons: "No direct communication. Really bad"

Pros: "No turbulence!!!"
Pros: "For economy class it was good seats (bulkhead), the crew were nice, and the food was good."

Pros: "Extra leg room in premium economy"
Cons: "Service poor relative to global peers, food mediocre, entertainment system totally outdated"

Cons: "The whole trip."
Pros: "That BAA have WiFi on the plan and the flight back did not even have USB charger . In new York at at the BAA terminal they only have 30 min worth of wifi"
Cons: "The service . In general it can be better"
Pros: "ALL the cabin crew were excellent! Polite and helpful and cared for the comfort of all their passengers."
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Sprang for business class. Could not get assigned seats until 24 hours before takeoff unless I paid an extra $200 and therefore got the last 2 seats together. Check in was very slow. The agents disappeared for about 15 minutes. Business class lounge ran out of food but BA gave us vouchers to eat elsewhere in the terminal. Flight left about an 90 min late (seems like it is always late) so had to run through Heathrow to catch the connection. Boarding area was too small and chaotic. Seating in business class was ok for me as I am only 5''7" but would be poor for someone over 6 feet. The steak entree was brown through and through. Overall the experience was disappointing."
Pros: "When the flight was delayed and I missed my connection, the crew had a new ticket for me by the time we landed."
Pros: "On time with good adult beverages. Had good movie selection as well."
