Cons: "Food availability a minor challenge but crew handled it very nicely."
Pros: "I had better experience with Emirates before...we had to wait ages for our food but maybe because we were the last one on the list. Food was nice and crew friendly."
Pros: "The seats were spacious and comfortable. Ample room for the long flight."
Cons: "Desert option: warm cookies"
Pros: "The crew members were great and managed everything effortlessly. The pilot was also very friendly."
Cons: "Services of crew very poor specially onboard services in business class"
Pros: "Pilot does not waste time chatting. Still too much chatter (interrupting movies) but less than on other airlines."
Cons: "Entertainment system is Windows based and designed by a moron, especially CC behavior. Shows ads (LOTS) before each movie. Pops up window chrome every time you dismiss PA announcements. Very few movies/TVs (even those from the US) have CC."
Pros: "The seating was comfortable with nice ambience."
Cons: "The crew was polite in talking but arrogant in nature."
Pros: "For the most part it really was a most excellent flight, especially the Dubai to SF leg where there were SO MANY CHILDREN around [should get a free upgrade just for surviving that] but the flight crew did exceptionally well and remained calm all the way through. Apart from one grumpyish woman on the second flight the majority of crew were exceptional and really went out of their way to serve and help."
Cons: "I slashed my finger fairly painfully on a toilet door while pushing it from the outside to open it on the Dubai to Cape Town flight [again, an upgrade on my home flight which is a bucket list dream would more than make up for that!] which i pointed out to a flight attendant and they took note of it and bandaged me up so it was dealt with well but hopefully that gets sorted out [she said she would write a report] cos it did unfortunately affect the rest of my flight a little... And so many crying babies [thankful for volume control on headphones] but literally that was it - love flying Emirates cos on the whole felt super well treated..."
Cons: "Queuing in the sky bridge reminds me of boarding a budget carrier. Birmingham needs expansion to be seriously considered a major international airport."
Cons: "The seats on the 777-300ER were tiny compared to the seats on the A380 from JFK to dubai. My wife and I are both small people and we were cramped. This is very unfair to us and even so to larger people on such a long leg The entertainment screens were also very poor. Small, low res"
Pros: "The servoce was as usual very good."
Cons: "Hardly anything to criticise in relatively short journey."
Pros: "I like the professionalism of the crew. Lots of shops to visit in Athens Airport."
Pros: "Great service. Very comfortable. Good food."
Pros: "The food was amazing. The entertainment was amazing The boarding process was very seamless Everything was done on time"

Pros: "Comfortable seat, good service and food, and a very comprehensive on board entertainment selection."
Cons: "A lot of background noise when using the supplied headphones"
Pros: "The food and the ICE video center"
Cons: "The fact the crew lets people stand around in front of you in the Exit row. For what Emirates charges for this added “luxury” it’s ridiculous."
Pros: "I was upgraded to business class. Very nice"
Pros: "Aircraft and entertainment are still among the best , and overall it compares well to intl competition"
Cons: "Emirates of a few years ago was more comfortable and the rewards scheme was more generous. I hope they can think about giving Uae residents a fairer shake as we seem to pay a lot more for flights. Silver members used to get access to lounges but not anymore?? Taking things away feels worse than if we never had it before. Abu Dhabi Doha and Sharjah are all near and cheaper to dxb and it’s tempting to switch as they offer a comprable service. Also dxb is overcrowded itd a long taxi and walk depending on your gate."
Pros: "The overall experience was good."
Cons: "The non-veg food option was limited to a prawn dish only which may not be a good option for all. Should have a chicken or goat meat alternative."
Cons: "I have transit for 18 hours and they did not give me a hotel I had to pay for it because they were saying my ticket is not eligible are you really get disappointed from this"
Pros: "The delay was too long and disorganized."
Pros: "Everything was fabulous.. 10/10"
Pros: "Loved the in-flight entertainment options. The food was excellent. They managed my gluten free options with ease and everything was delicious. The attendants were extremely pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "I paid for the higher wifi bandwidth, but the service was spotty and some websites/social media wouldn't load. Even some texts wouldn't send. I wish there was more legroom between the seats for such a long flight. But the value for the overseas flight was still quite good."
Pros: "Emirates makes it a bit more comfortable than other carriers while there is nothing we can do about the long flight and being in a crowded space."
Cons: "Prepare for more and more security measures."
Pros: "Received a flight credit"
Cons: "Emirates overbooked the flight and we were bumped."
Pros: "Girls were very helpful and there was one Italian jental man was very kind and co-operative. However sits were very uncomfortable. Food was ok. There were very little healthy choices. overall it was good."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and professional. I want to hightlight the exceptional quality of the meal served"
Cons: "I waited in queue for almost 4 hours to get past security. While watching people cut the line, airport officials taking bribe and allowing some people to cut the line and more. i did not have enough time to purchase from the duty free store in chennai and since my flight from chennai was late it landed late in Dubai so I did not have any time to purchase anything in dubai duty free before my connecting flight. I reached airport 4 hours before departure and I get treated like this, horrible service."
Pros: "Very good we appreciate good service and good food"
Pros: "Entertainment Food Friendly Flight Crews"

Pros: "This airline is consistently great. Comfortable, lovely staff members, and great in flight entertainment."

Pros: "Service, comfort, food, wine, all outstanding."
Cons: "Flights are always good but back office staff is always careless not to bother any complaints or never solved any complaints they do not care of customer bcoz they have business thier is no other airline right now but in future may be they loose customer like me"
Cons: "When I was boarding on my 14 hour flight from Dubai to the US, I was briefly informed by the Emirates boarding staff that my seat had been changed. I had specifically chosen my aisle seat because I like to stand often on long flights, so I was concerned that it had been changed. When I tried to get more information from the staff member, he dismissively said "Ma'am, this is a good seat" and handed me my ticket without even making eye contact. There was no apology or courtesy of any kind. I ended up with a window seat and I had to crawl over two other people throughout the 14 hour flight to use the restroom or stretch my legs. I expected more courtesy from the staff for this kind of inconvenience and will rethink my flight plans in the future to avoid Dubai."
Pros: "The Crew was nice"
Pros: "great plane and service, and so many movies"
Cons: "the passenger next to me had no sense of personal space or boundary, head on my shoulder while sleeping, foot in front of my chair, etc. and no english; gave the flight attendants a hard time too"
Pros: "I. Had bulk head seat 45g, the seat was stuck and could not recline ,the tv was stuck too so could not watch anything was boating and it was not comfortable at all"

Cons: "Vegetarian meal options were scarce."
Pros: "Just a great experience for a very long flight. The kind of pampering you don't see on any other airline."

Pros: "Would recommend it to everyone, really loved it."
Cons: "Landing should be more smooth."
Pros: "Movie starts as soon as seated"
Cons: "No Emirate staff presented to due with the 20+ hours delay. Just sent their representatives who are not powerful to make decisions and at the end we have many questions not answered. Eg. Any earlier reconnect flights? Any alternative airlines? What is the checkout time of the compensation hotel? Any meal compensation if not staying at their hotel? Etc."
Pros: "The flight was on time and fairly clean."
Cons: "The seats are so crowded and we were jammed in like sardines. There was insufficient ventilation and it was too warm and stuffy. Not comfortable."
Cons: "Games sollten Nachts gesperrt werden. Die gute Dame hinter mir spielte wohl die ganze Nacht Solitaire und mein Sitz schüttelte immer. Auf meine bitte zu stoppen weder kommentar noch reaktion."
Pros: "I like the atmosphere of the Swiss airline company, checking in, flights was excellent"
Pros: "Food was really hot & good customer service"

Cons: "I am still in Budapest and was not able to fly back on my Hungarian passport."
Pros: "the crew was great."
Cons: "they asked us to check in our carry-on because the plane was full.I had important papers so I had to explain my situation. I hate confrontation so I felt anxious and I'm already an anxious flier. I feel that this should only pertain to people with larger carry-on. my was below the average size."
Cons: "Older plane with poor seat comfort. (Same trip Bos to Zurich much better.) Video did not work at all in one seat and poorly in other ,for 7 hr flight"
Pros: "TV screens and movies. Food was great."
Pros: "We called for seats 23 hours prior to flight. To our amazement we were assigned to an exit row."
Cons: "It was an easy 2.5 hrs. flight at which a small warm quiche was served. Nice surprise."
Pros: "Very little."
Cons: "Boarding was difficult with poor communication, before impolite request for spot check of carry-on bag and person. Ended up being one of the last to board. Entertainment system did not work, and after 4 requests for assistance to different crew members finally gave up asking and so had no entertainment for whole of flight. The last of the crew members suggested that an alternative seat or a future flight voucher could be given, but neither of these materialized. Food mediocre, and crew polite, but some not particularly friendly."
Pros: "I slept with the jazz music...didn't hear a baby that was crying the whole flight..."
Pros: "The crew was great and the flight itself was fine"
Cons: "The checking in experience was chaotic. I was told I was on standby for my connecting flight to New York. The flight was delayed by almost an hour and a half."
Pros: "The best thing is that they’re always on time"
Cons: "The seats are way too cramped"
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Ithe check in counter was open about an hour before departure, having passengers waiting in line for almost two hours. Thhe departure was later than scheduled, I did ask for assistance in Zurich airport and got none. Almost missed my connection flight due to poor health conditions and less than expected lay over time."
Pros: "Clean, modern plane, friendly and attentive crew"
Cons: "Cramped space in economy!"
Pros: "See / hear the middle-aged guy around seat 22 aisle coughing his lungs out throughout the 10 hour flight without once covering his mouth ? WTF is going on w an airline that would let a passenger behave like this ? Didn’t see the attendants offering a cough drop, or asking if he would please behave like a civilized human being. Looking for others corroboration. Spread the word like this guy this w his germs"
Cons: "A grown man coughing loudly during a 10 hr flight w/o once covering his mouth"
Pros: "Crew was good. Very polite. The plane was old. No place to charge your phone. The in flight screen required the use of a remote which was inconvenient when having to wake up my neighbor to pull it out of the armrest. Food wasn’t great. Skipped the last meal service. It was like flying 20 years ago. Not bad, but not as good as it could be nowadays."
Pros: "Excellent organization, food and entertainment. Impeccable service."
Pros: "Service was great with staff being very professional Flights were on time and entertainment selections were good."
Pros: "Crew was great. Flight kept time. Safe trip. Thank you."
Cons: "The on board duty free did not have ample change, so I had to forfeit $3 in change.. On top of that they secrectly charged $10 extra on my card after my flight! I already got the ticket and paid extra luggage- what is the extra charge for?? The lady at extra luggage tried to overcharge me as well! Had to refer her to your website! I need this excess charges reversed. I demand an explanation!"
Pros: "typical Swiss quality"
Cons: "Delay. Missed train connection. Business class went to row 15 To then leave it empty"
Pros: "The crew were very attentive, kind and professional on their ways through the cabin. I appreciated the hot towels near the end of the flight."
Cons: "There were headphones (as well as pillows and blankets, much appreciated), but the jacks for the headphones only fit the SwissAir headphones, so if passengers brought their own headphones, they could only get a mono output. It was difficult to hear the entertainment through only one ear."
Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "insufficient AC during boarding endlessly screaming baby"
Pros: "Great complimentary chocolate."
Cons: "You would think that after spending 1100 on a ticket that a passenger could chose their own seat within 24 hours of their flight. Nope. They wanted me to pay for my seat after already spending 1100. Then they said I was randomly selected for a TSA check in Zurich. Seriously. And there was no TSA agent in sight doing the check. It was a Swiss Airline Employee. Never had that happen even in the USA."
Pros: "The crew is rude"
Cons: "40 min delay"
Cons: "Our luggage was left behind in Zurich after an unnecessary gate check. There were plenty of room in the overhead bins, and we purposefully bought the luggage because they were sized for bin storage."
Pros: "My luggage was lost for two days on the flight from Tampa to Zurich and/or Zurich to Naples. It was delivered by the end of the second day. But before that I found out I could not choose seats online for any of the Swiss Air Flights to and from Europe. It "had to be done" at the airport. Why? Never explained. I called Travis International, the agency booking the flights. Totally useless conversation resulted with no explanation."
Cons: "The Flights were longer than other airlines taking similar routes. The routing was absurd. To go from Naples to Munich and then turn around and go to Zurich before the 10 hour trip to Tampa made no sense. Lousy routing and customer service. Eidelswiss apparently is a lower-end branch of Swiss Air. My airfare was as much as and more than my other friends who flew Delta, for instance. Flights on other airlines did not take 10 hours from Zurich to Tampa. I lost the ticket receipts and could not claim anything for the items I bought to try get through the two full days without luggage, even though the airlines has a record of the claim. Outrageous!!"
Pros: "Food, staff, service"
Cons: "No leg room"
Pros: "food and crew were excellent: good meals, free wine."
Cons: "Screen was dim and low-resolution, controls slow and hard to use, no power outlets."
Pros: "crew was friendly, little snack was delicious"
Cons: "Just before landing in Zurich the flight attendant started to announce the gates for flight connections. I was on tight schedule trying to make my connection to Amsterdam. He first started to give my gate number, but then said there won't be flight to Amsterdam until the next day. I was very worried. When landing it was very difficult to find anyone working for Swiss to assist me. Then someone told me that my flight would be leaving in 3 minutes. I asked to be rushed through line, but everyone said not too worry because plane would wait for me. When I arrived at gate there was no one there. Then it took quite a while to find another Swiss employee to help me. There seemed to be a lot of confusion."
Pros: "Crew is very friendly Drinks quality is acceptable Comfortable airplane seats"
Cons: "Both flights from Swiss (from Münich to Zürich and the flight in the opposite direction) were delayed by 30 min and 1h, respectively."
Pros: "Helpful staff"
Cons: "I was uncomfortable with the space"
Pros: "Flight was safe and crew was professional"
Cons: "Seats were horrible for a transcontinental flight. I was squirming before the first hour of an 8 hour flight. Touchscreen of entertainment system was frustrating. Sometimes it responded other times not. Lunch tasted good but the snack, a calzone, was pretty bad."
Pros: "efficient boarding ang pre- boarding"
Cons: "these planes are not meant for people above 180 cm. On transcontinental flights it is absolutely unacceptable"
Pros: "Overall this was an average international flight. But the crew and food made up for all the short comings. One of the most amazing crews I have ever experienced....and food was surprisingly delicious...even ice cream. they visited frequently with water and tea. We're friendly accommodating and fun everything that you want in a crew."
Cons: "Cramped coach seats and pretty boring movie selection.The double checking and multiple lines at boarding was a ridiculous but perhaps it's required"
Pros: "that they had new movies"
Cons: "the leg space is non existent, few of the seat dont even recline meanwhile some recline more than normal"
Pros: "I was upgraded! Delicious lunch."
Cons: "Flight attendants blocked the aisle cleaning after meal service. The line of more than 10 people formed in the aisle trying to go to the lavatories, and the flight attendants would not move even after repeated requests by a parent who had a two year old needing to go. The lavatories were vacant at the time. Why can't they clear out and let people pass through. Never seen this type unaccommodating behavior."
Pros: "I did not like anything about this flight"
Cons: "My flight has been cancelled with no ecplonation. They reissue e ticket for me under different name. The crew were very rude . My suitcase was lost and still I have not received it . They promised to deliver ."

Cons: "No room for legs"
Pros: "Good entertainment"

Pros: "Wonderfully nice crew. Food is pretty decent even with Economy. Seats are comfortable."
Cons: "Their iPhone App (and to a lesser extend the website too) is awfully slow. It takes forever to gather booking info and check in. Sometimes the boarding pass just don't get delivered to my SMS. Small selection of shows on personal screen. ZRH-HKG flights don't even have touch screens, and the UI is very antiquated."
Pros: "Good food, service, and entertainment"
Cons: "The seats are not very cushioned"
Cons: "Seats can be better."
Pros: "Same as other answe"
Pros: "The crew was fun, informed, and very helpful."
Cons: "The seat, the entertainment, the headphone jack, the food."
Cons: "Flight late more than 3-4 hours on Frankfurt. So upset. I will never and ever try with Frankfurt again. I bought shortest way ticket to pay more money but unfortunately flight late about 3-4 hours. Money trap. I would love to have another free flight or I will post the tickets on facebook, Twitter and etc... To make a terrible flight reputation."
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: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "The crew was great. Seating was a little uncomfortable."
Cons: "Food was not so good."
Pros: "It was long flight but everything was just right. Will use this company again."
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable seat, good food, and food entertainment."
Cons: "Delayed 20 minutes out of Denver, and when I arrived at my connecting city in Munich I was immediately told I would not make my connecting flight due to customs lines and to reschedule. I walked 5 minutes to customs, no lines, walked another 5 minutes to my gate, and easily made the connection."
Pros: "Canceled and not rebooked untill 4 days later"
Cons: "Still waiting to fly"
Pros: "Beautiful plane, economy seating more generous than normal, excellent in-seat entertainment (easy to navigate, more options than I've ever seen before). Well done!"
Pros: "Good leg room in aircraft and comfortable seating."

Pros: "I was happy with everything stewardess where very friendly everything went smoth"
Pros: "best take off and landing I’ve ever experienced. 2 meals for an 8 hour flight and all the red wine I could drink!"
Pros: "The crew and amenities are excellent!"
Cons: "Economy space is really tight."
Cons: "You cancelled my flight & I lost a whole day of mt trip!"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly as always."
Cons: "I didn't like having to wait on the plane for 5 hours while the plane was being worked on while still on ground at Denver International airport. I really didn't like that once arriving in Frankfurt International airport and missing my connecting flight I was provided a voucher for food that was worth 10 euros which wasn't enough to get a meal only a snack. I read an article on the plane on how well Lufthansa Airlines is doing and how much money they made but yet they have been giving the same amount on vouchers for a very long time."
Pros: "movie selection"
Cons: "I missed my lufthanza connection"
Pros: "Flight staff were kind and friendly"
Cons: "I could not push my seat back and the man in front of me pushed his back leaving me very little room"
Pros: "Big plane, captain communicated our flight well."
Cons: "Flight personelle were not very friendly, and as I am not a great flier and was making my first oveseas trip I was a bit disappointed they were so curt."
Pros: "Great service. everything was on time, or early. overall pleasant experience."
Pros: "Boarding was a mess- started late which made our departure late. Also though I had booked the ticket with united as a MileagePlus member, I didn’t get priority boarding, not could we pay to upgrade our seats at the gate desk. Overall disappointing experience as a member of one of their affiliate membership programs."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Plane was very clean."
Cons: "Seats in economy are miserably uncomfortable especially for a flight of this many hours."
Pros: "I liked that if I asked for something the crew would get to me rapidly. Extra leg room."
Cons: "Boarding process: just a lot of confusion. Inflight crew service poor: the was no time to have any brain reaction when they would pass by with coffee or anything...and when I asked for coffee the answer for a gentlemen of the crew was: coffee already passed by. Really!!?? Make sure that +$1200 are spent well. Rude or inattentive crew members shouldn’t be on flights that are that long...I had to nsist to have a miserable cup of coffee. Movie selection was poor. USB port didn’t work. Shame on you!"
Pros: "very professional cabin crew"
Cons: "The overhead bins are way too small, and they ran out of the vegetarian dinner option. There are no longer air controls for each seat, and the plane was quite cold."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Couldn't reserve a seat, even 24 hours in advance because web checkin was turned off. Ended up in the middle of the middle on both directions."
Pros: "The crew's hospitality was exceptional in all areas. Best flight ever."
Cons: "They were helpful, kind, and courteous and above all, friendly."
Pros: "Great service, on time departure, excellent amenities"
Cons: "The flight was over before I expected it!"
Pros: "the crew are exellent"
Cons: "Entertainment options were not too good. The flight should have more American sitcoms and more Hindi options."
Pros: "The entire experience was great. Easy check-in, boarding, on time, friendly service, good food, good movies, and overall a really nice atmosphere for such a long flight. Would recommend this Flight to anyone."
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: "The people in the crew were very nice"
Cons: "The two seats that I paid for were the worst seats I've ever had in a plane They were the back two seats of the plane they were so small you should not have them there. I am a small person I had no room my wife is small she had no room. When the seat in front of me laid-back it almost hit my chest."
Pros: "Got upgraded to Business Class"
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: "Great service, crew attentiveness and economy comfort. Movie and music selection was good."
Cons: "Slightly larger food portion"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly. The food and drink service was excellent. The entertainment was varied. And the flight was smooth and on time which was greatly appreciated."
Cons: "As someone who does not particularly enjoy flying, Lufthansa made everything smooth and enjoyable. That being said, if I have to nitpick... the feet of the seats in front of me were staggered so that my foot space was cut in half by a bar. I had to have one foot on each side... sharing each one with the seatmates on either side of me. It made it so I didn't have a clear space to store my purse, which made the 10 hour flight just a little uncomfortable. Oh...and I could not find the proper jack for the headphones. It's as if the headphones provided were not meant for that entertainment system."
Pros: "Good job keeping up on food and beverages. Entertainment was great. It was a long flight but was manageable with great service"
Pros: "This flight was fine. About as comfortable as I expected."
Cons: "I sat next to a man who had a vape pen and a can of chew with him. So the entire nine hours I spent smelling his mouth tobacco and I could do nothing about it. It was disgusting."
Pros: "No communication"
Cons: "Unhelpful and now luggage has been lost going on 3 days in same clothes"
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: "Plane was quite new with fairly comfortable seats. Great individual screens and entertainment. Food was good. Staff was very friendly. I would fly with Lufthansa again."
Cons: "We might try for the direct flight next time (if it is available). Connecting in the Munich hub added a lot of time and some back and forth flying. I wish our Lufthansa flight back was also with lufthansa rather than United. United SUCKS in comparison. United needs to improve their game and their planes and their service."
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."
Pros: "The crew was kind, the flight was on time and alll in all was just as expected."
Pros: "The crew was nice. The economy seating was sorta spacious, but then again, it was economy. I’m 6’2” and my knees didn’t hurt."
Cons: "It’s standard European airline. Don’t expect Cathay, Singapore or Emirates."

Pros: "Clean and new planes. On time."
Cons: "On the transatlantic flight the crew was unattractive and somewhat rude. They skipped our entire row serving morning refreshments and then complained and tried to shame us all for calling them back. Food quality was on par with Alegent Airlines. We even got charged for one piece of checked luggage 46lb on a international flight. That was a first!!!"
Pros: "Even on this short 1-hour prop flight they do have average service and pass out Swiss chocolate."
Pros: "Service was good and the crew was courteous and friendly"
Cons: "Online check-in did not allow me to select my seat. It was already assigned and didn't let me change it Boarding was later than scheduled and caused my connecting flight at O'Hare hectic This was the first time that I had ordered Kosher food and I would never make that mistake again, the meal was okay but the sandwich was awful and had no taste!"
Cons: "Austrian Airlines cancelled my flight with no notice, technical difficulties. Woke up before 5 am and went to the airport to find out, then waited in line for two hours to get re-booked on a flight the next day. Really poorly done. No compensation. Would not recommend Austrian Airlines, ever. -Mark Cox"
Pros: "This is always a pleasant airline to travel with."
Cons: "I felt like the airlines deliberately cheated me. I purchased a flight that was listed as "economy" , which means I am authorized one suitcase. When I got to checkout they said I had pay for the suitcase. Turns out my flight was economy 'light' flight and I had to go the Austrian airlines desk and pay euro 40 for my suitcase. Wish that would have been clear when I purchased the ticket. Also there is no clear info on what the cost is for your bag at what point in the check-in process."
Pros: "I never try Austrian airlines because this trip was my first trip with them and I'll say that it's one of the best trips I ever had the airport at Vienna it's very small and easy to go anywhere you want and it's super clean and the stuff at the airport are very helpful and they all speak English and I was able to get a hotel room with walking destination from the airport and it was a very good experience overall I'll definitely recommend to anyone and I'll definitely keep them on my top list"
Pros: "I'm so happy I did not book Austrian Airlines for the way back to Zurich."
Cons: "My checked in baggage did not arrive with me, the staff told me it'll arrive the same day in the evening but it did not and nobody informed me, I only found out after calling them 5 times (which 2 times they hung up on me after putting me on hold). My bag only arrived almost 35 hours after i already landed Hong Kong, without being able to tell me when exactly and made me sit and wait for them to deliver it at mid-night."
Pros: "Very good flight crew. Decent food and nice entertainment."
Cons: "Poor web site. Very poor boarding crew. Boarding crew made no announcements for who must get re-elected ticketed for shares carrier tucked or web site ticketed passengers. No prep boarding plan given therefore mass at gate."
Pros: "I liked the crew on the flight."
Cons: "I was frustrated with the staff at the desk in the airport, as we boarded 20miutes late and they did not feel it necessary to give any comment on the situation. Everyone was puzzled as to why we were not boarding, or if there was a problem. Even the screens did not show any change."
Pros: "Crew only offered water once during the whole night flight. The entertainment programs regarding games was very restricted, both in terms of game offers as well as operation / handling"
Cons: "My Swiss flight from Stuttgar via Zurich to JFK was cancelled before 24 hours without explaining the reason. They should explain the reason at least. I had to take an another flight and arrived at JFK after 6 hours from the original flight. My trip was totally messed up, so I was not happy at all."
Cons: "They are always delayed"
Pros: "Good service and on time."
Pros: "Organized orderly boarding. Food was snack only. Flight crew was pleasant and helpful."

Pros: "Flight smoothness, service, friendliness, pilot experience, stewardesses (except for one), food, delicious."
Cons: "All flight attendants were great except for one tall with very short blonde hair. What a poor attitude! She really ruined my trip. There was not an exchange with her that was friendly and agreeable. When serving drinks a second time, she asked me what would I like to drink and I answered: What do you have? I had not asked the first time drinks were served since I knew I wanted orange juice. he second time, and not wanted to drink the same, I asked: what do you have? and her answer was: "Same as before". I had to let her know I had not asked before and then she proceeded to tell me the different drinks and finally added: My colleague will take care of you. She did not want to serve me. The first incident went I tried to use the bathroom in the back of the plane, she would tell people: "don"t use that one, I need that bathroom for......." ( not sure for what but her tone was so rude,that people walked to the other bathroom embarrassed). All I can say is that everything else was great, including the friendliness of all other crew, but that one ruined the experience. A third time I got up to walk to the bathroom and the seatbelt sign was on, but so it had been for a long time. She prompted me to go back to my seat. All others seem to do their job without been rude, Not sure why this one couldn't. Job stress? Not the passenger's problem. Besides that and the poor movie choices, everything else was great. I think the flight was delayed but to that point everything was going so smooth, I didn't even notice. I will fly Austrian again, and would love to visit Vienna. Please advise how to add the miles of my trip to my account. I booked in Kayak, left to Ohio from Miami running from hurricane Irma, my return from Ohio to Miami was cancelled and I had to embark on that long plan10 day trip without even returning home to Miami to pack. I totally forgot about putting the miles on my account on either ticket counter."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable Bathrooms clean"
Cons: "Crew wasn't very helpful and didn't ensure my stroller was delivered at the aircraft exit Had trouble closing my suitcase into the overhead compartment and called for assistance, to which i got reprimanded for opening it in the first place Requested coffee because i couldn't get it myself, being with a sleeping toddler, to which i got a horrible answer: the flight attendant told me i had to get it myself in the kitchenette"

Cons: "They could not issue boarding pass for the all the segments of the travel. The agent had to talk to someone in order to even issue the boarding pass and even though the bags were checked in all the way to Pittsburgh boarding passes were not issued. I cannot blame the agent because Luftansa had issued the ticket for this Austrian Airline flight."

Pros: "Cheap ticket"
Cons: "The fact that you cheapskates don't allow credit or refund is downright usury. I didn't take that flight because of medical issues that caused me to cancel my trip 2 weeks in advance. I pleaded with you to be able to take a credit, to no avail. You lost a customer."

He could have just politely told me there was nothing available. Not looking forward to my return flight"
Pros: "Comfortable, hospitality and wonderful service"
Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent"
Cons: "We were transported to the plane which was quite some distance to the plane via bus after climbing down steep stairs from the departure gate area. Then we had to climb steep steps in extremely hot weather.

Pros: "The noise-canceling headset is good."

Cons: "Long delay during connection at CDG Unclear information about delay Repeated changes to boarding time Unable to take stroller during connection Had to go through security again at CDG, although same terminal (2E)"
Cons: "The delay in the flight without even informing us of the reasons. Changing the boarding gates twice, and no options in the meal."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The food was really poor. The chicken was as dry as it can be. The food taste was poor. I flow 3 weeks ago with KLM and the food was pretty good for flight food. In a French company I expect much more. The entertainment system on the airbus a380 was like an enchant IT system from the past. Very poor reaction time. Very messy and not people oriented at all.

Cons: "we paid for two seats together (one aisle and one middle) an exit row with extra legroom from paris to LA. but when we got to Prague they had one of us in the middle seat in the exit row and the other in a completely different part of the plane, also a middle row. The folks in Prague couldn't fix this, they moved one ticket to a different exit row, not together, different part of the plane. In Paris, but ONLY after I located my receipt on my phone, they moved us to the seats we had paid for."
Pros: "Efficient boarding. Interesting hot food. Entertainment variety very good."
Cons: "Business class seats hard. Did not flatten out for sleep."
Cons: "Left a little late for no apparent reason."
Pros: "Boarded 45 minutes late, and then sat in the plane for another two hours before take off due to a problem with the lie computer. Would have been better to spend that time in the terminal and given credits to buy food, etc. My seat was a regular seat (non exit) and the seat did not recline properly, the USB drive was broken, overall the plane felt unmaintained. The crew was friendly and food was good but I felt not enough was done to accommodate the extra hours we had to wait on the plane."

Then the next morning before boarding I got inquired by French police asking why did I stay in Nice over night. My suitcase locks was cut open and a special silver plated cup,handle,was broken in my suitcase."
