Cons: "You mean the flight that never happened? The one that was suppose to fly out at 12:50 on 1/6/18 delayed until 17:25 (with acceptable communication the first delay) but then later delayed till 00:10 after I’ve already arrived at the airport early for the 17:25 departure. The screens with arrivals and departures posted that Checkin was open but there was no JAL staff to answer questions. Then getting an update “maybe” the 00:10 flight is cancelled? What is maybe cancelled and JALs phone messege still said the flight would depart at 00:10. So I go back to JFK because after all “maybe” isnt a definitive and according to all the direct JAL sources the flight is suppose to depart, I get to JFK the second time only to be given a printout saying the flight is cancelled with no rebooking, and to call for assistance. The same number is been calling for hours trying to get answers. coukdnt reschedules because I’m calling outside of business hours! I spent $200 on cab rides going back and forth to JFK to go nowhere, get no apology, no new flight booking, and no reimbursement for transportation."

Pros: "I am looking forwards to using them again! I paid more using this airline than their competitors. But after completing my trip I will have to say it was well worth it and will using them again."

Pros: "The food on this flight was horrible. Big disappointment. Usually, the food on Japan Airlines is wonderful. However, on this flight, the food was a crab/mayo sandwich with yogurt. However, the service was wonderful, as always."

Cons: "They every bad customer service, I never seen before"

Pros: "The cabin crew was professional, friendly and courteous. It's always refreshing to fly an Asian airline for the impeccable customer service. The 787 left me with minimal jet lag. The odd shaped pillows provided great back support."
Cons: "The seats were comfortable but old fashioned. The WiFi was spotty and it would have been nice to have Asian food options."

Pros: "The flight's timing and airports are perfect for a short weekend getaway between Seoul and Tokyo. JAL service is also perfect!"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "I really loved JAL customer service at checking counter. So friendly and great customer service I received."

Cons: "WiFi was very flakey, and could not complete the Credit Card transaction to login... Wasted several hours."

Pros: "Excellent custumer service including cabin attendants' attentiveness and pilot's warnings of turbulence. Great in-flight entertainment. I liked the special touches such as the small snack and water bar available throughout the flight, and the breakfast Kumamon special. Clean bathrooms are very very appreciated."
Cons: "The only bad experience was when we were boarding, and I asked whether I could take a newspaper and the business class flight attendant snidely said that it was only for business class. I understand the comment, but her expression and tone were unnecessary."

Pros: "Meals at good times during the flight, complimentary wine served, comfortable seats. Overall better than any other airline for economy class. Enough leg room, good attention, never felt like I was riding a crowded city bus as on typical one distance economy class. Worth paying a little more for being treated like a human"
Cons: "I did have any negatives on this flight"

Pros: "The ground crew in HKG airport was really helpful."
Cons: "I have been flying JAL from HK to Boston numerous times and by far my favourite (over Cathay and don't even need to mention United). However this past trip gave me a new perspective. Given it is a Japanese airline and all, it is normal for them to be Japanese-centric. We had an a-hole sitting in front of us at 51F during our flight to Narita and he was trying hard to argue with us in English, and even told us to move to another seat. When I had the flight attendant (her name is Sako on flight JL736 on Jul 26) over to discuss (in English) she went to the guy in front of us and started apologizing to him. For what??? She then came back to us speaking in Japanese and brushed the issue away. Sorry, no this was not acceptable, even though my fiance was okay with the situation."

Pros: "Clean and comfortable."
Cons: "Vegetarian Food, inflight entertainment was horrible. Even the air hostess approach Was unexpect from JAL. If it was any American carrier it's expected to have such service."

Pros: "The flight was smooth boarding and sailing with excellent service."

Pros: "Korean Airlines now definitely ranks on best airlines to travel internationally. Great legroom, good food, and a terrific cabin crew who was helpful and kind."

Pros: "Everything that was offered snacks, pillow,"
Cons: "More water!"

Pros: "Nice, clean efficient. Comfort was good."
Cons: "The crew was great but pretty impersonal. Not a great selection of movies."

Cons: "Flight attendants rude to travel companion . Non Korean but speaks Korean. When addressing two flight attendants on Korean, they insisted on responding in English, rather than continuing in Korean. Travel companion not happy."

Cons: "Overall experience is good."

Pros: "Wouldn’t allow me to board with no explanation and the third party company Flyus.com is a complete rip off"
Cons: "Use better companies to book your tickets"

Pros: "The crew, as always, was super professional, friendly, helpful, and efficient. The plane was neat and clean, I was pleasantly surprised with personal items like tooth paste, tooth brush, and slippers. And I was thrilled that you served wine with food as well. That goes a long way!"
Cons: "I didn’t rate comfort and food as “excellent” as I did other items not because they were not great, but flying on an economy class for 14.5 hours, I can’t force myself to speak too highly about these two items, which doesn’t necessarily reflect my flight experience or Korean Air quality!"

Pros: "The music of kpop"
Cons: "Would have been good if there’s more korean drama available on the trip and some kimbap food too"

Pros: "The crew was great. The technology is great. I enjoyed the movies."
Cons: "I wish I had more water."

Pros: "Cleanliness, super efficient, helpful, competent, gracious crew - among the very best in the world of airlines! Politeness and smiling courtesy defines KAL. The spacious seats are best for six footers like me - legroom wise."
Cons: "It used to be my and my wife’s favorite airline. But the warm and dry air in the cabin dry our throats and nasal cavities and make travel so uncomfortable! My wife suffered twice with coughs and respiratory illness. I’m traveling by myself in this trip. She avoids KAL. Food is sparse and ordinary unlike before."

Cons: "During 14 hour flight, meals were served at the beginning and at the end which comes to 10 hours in between. Between the two meals, they offered a snack of banana or brownie. My wife and I were starving. Terrible!"

Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "I know you are not the only airline that does this, but the seats are cramped. I am not a big guy. I can't imagine what a heavier or tall person goes through in those economy seats."

Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice and leg room space was more than other flights"

Pros: "Seats reasonably comfortable, service decent"
Cons: "3 of my 4 flight legs were considerably delayed, my luggage not making the connection for one of them. A friend also flying Korean also had delays making me think they are unreliable and extremely disorganized. I don't know what they'll do when they're really busy for the Olympics. Entertainment OK but ANA has much more."

Cons: "cheated by kayak. I paid full pay as mention on your wave sight but did not provide the hotel for 20 hours plus long transit. I spend 20 hours plus at the airport without any support form staff. Korean air please don't accept any ticket agent who will give a ticket to passengers with 20 hours transit time and no accommodation. good Korean air but bad kayak."

Pros: "some area the A/C does not work"

Pros: "다 좋은데 한가지 불만사항 : 인터넷에서 구매했다는 이유로 Mileage 로 Upgrade 가 안된다는데 그럼 KAL 대리점도 없는 이곳에서 mileage 는 언제 사용 ?"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Services are great, the people are kind."
Cons: "Lines for the bathroom mid flight."

Pros: "Great Service, enough leg room for someone who is 75 inches in height, good food, and an on-time arrival."

Pros: "I really liked how Korean Air had the next flights gate information on my boarding passes."

Pros: "Boarding was smooth. Seats weren't too bad. Decent selection of movies, but have had better. USB plug at every seat. Ordered vegetarian meal but didn't arrive."
Cons: "They didn't have my vegetarian meal that I ordered so was pretty hungry."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Korean Air service is second to none. The attendants are kind, always a friendly face and beautiful. At checkin service the attendant was kind enough to notice that my travel partner and I would enjoy an aisle and window seat together without a middle seat occupant and seated us accordingly. Thoughtful. Attendants periodically walked the aisles to let guests know that they were available always. Five stars!!"

Pros: "Very happy with flight. I haven't been disappointed with Korean Air, which I have chosen a couple times for my business trips to Thailland."
Cons: "Normally the food is very good. This time the chicken and rice had a lot of fat on the meat. Other than that there were no problems."

Pros: "Delays on both legs, but major snow storms at both departure points. Lucky to have gotten out."

Pros: "Crew members were great."
Cons: "No problem."

Pros: "Everyone was friendly and helpful at all times and it was fun experiencing a different cultures food while still having the option of just chicken available."

Pros: "loads of entertainment options to pass the time crew was very accommodating and friendly tasty food and drinks seating space for economy is great"

Pros: "Serving attitude was good."

Pros: "Comfortable, pleasant attendants"

Pros: "The crew was very helpful and polite."

Pros: "Even though it was a short trip, a full sandwich meal was provided. A clean flight and excellent crew service."
Cons: "None"

Cons: "newer movies would have been nice"

Pros: "I arrived 30 minutes before departure. The staff was very nice and understanding and even personally held my luggage and ran with me to the board the plane. All of the staff inside the plane was great and friendly, the food was good (I was surprised we even got food - it was a 2 hour flight). There was very good entertainment."
Cons: "The seats were extremely small and close to each other, I would touch elbows with the other passengers. It wasn't such a problem since it was such a short flight. And there was more positives than negatives."

Pros: "comfort"

Pros: "New clean plane...food... Crew service was fantastic!"

Pros: "Food, entertainment, convenience pouch, and comfort are all good."

Cons: "Had problem getting movies to play. Crew reset but didn't resolve problem. I found a work around to make it work."

Pros: "It was a long flight but Korean Air made me feel comfortable."

Pros: "short flight, good food, on time, great service crew."

Pros: "I think you should add tv/movie in these flights from japan to korea. I think you should also give the full container for beverages :)"
Cons: "I think you should add tv/movie in these flights from japan to korea. I think you should also give the full container for beverages :)"

Pros: "Always great service and they really are quite accommodating."
Cons: "Delay out of Seattle made us miss our connection in Seoul, so had a day layover, but Korean Air was very accommodating with hotel and meals. Perhaps such short turn overs should not be the way to go for connecting flights or perhaps hold connecting flights for a few minutes -- missed by 5 minutes arrival, but would never have made it through transfer and gate connection without super help by staff and more time. KA did their best -- just wasn't prepared to stayover in Seoul."

Pros: "I loved the flight (Thanks Korean Air Flight Attendants!). The aircraft was an Airbus 380-800 and each seat in coach had legroom, a USB charger, access to 110AC, and an individual screen that had games, tv, movies for me and the family. Great airplane, crew, and 13.5 hour flight. Additionally, Incheon International (S. Korea) is in my Top 2 airports of all time."
Cons: "The tickets were bought many months in advance and the flight itinerary changed about 6 times during the months. I understand this completely, but each change had me checking the details of each stop to see what exactly changed. Most of the time the changes were 10 mins here, 10 mins there. It would be nice for the changes to be BOLD or something."

Cons: "The screens on the backs of the seats were difficult to utilize (it is a touch screen but I had to tap on the screen multiple times in order for it to actually work). Perhaps due to an outdated system/software. There is a remote placed sideways/length-wise under the screen that you may take out of its placement however it was not as convenient as directly tapping on the screen."

Pros: "Very clean, comfortable, brand new 747.. Very professional and friendly flight crew.. Food was above average, no complaints.."

Pros: "Food and service was great Thank you"
Cons: "Everything was great I will recommend to any one"

Pros: "- food"

Pros: "The crew took care of us during a strange virus affected flight."

Pros: "The crew was helpful and meals are delicious."
Cons: "Give free mask."

Pros: "The plane was ghetto and old and there was only one tiny restroom for the entire economy class."
Cons: "A newer plane with more restrooms would be great."

Pros: "Seat was broken would not lock in upright position. Seat entertainment screen was also malfunctioning in the on position."

Pros: "Excellent service from the cabin crew."
Cons: "The Japanese (Washoku) breakfast was not as good as I expected."

Pros: "Everything was great. The crew was nice and the food was pretty good."
Cons: "Everything was great."

Cons: "Add a low carb meal option"

Pros: "The crew is amazing but that is to expect since it was a Japanese crew that operated from Narita."
Cons: "The vegetarian food was terrible; unless they mistook my request and did a vegan option. The first meal was an o-k noodle stirfry type of thing but the breakfast was a porridge that had no flavor. Hopefully it was a misunderstanding but worth noting."

Cons: "Good"

Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Disappointed with some of flight attendants. ANA used to provide best customer service."

Pros: "Service was impeccable, as usual, from check-in to boarding. Crew was attentive and friendly."

Pros: "Your crew.they are wonderful,we are flying with ANA this morning we hope to have the same experience.thank you."

Pros: "Honestly everything went really well. Like the title say, it was easy booking, a great price, and I got some wonderful memories to bring home."
Cons: "I did think about changing my departure time but the ticketing agency didn’t relly quickly enough so I was stuck. Luckily it worked out."

Pros: "Crew was fantastic. Really polite and attentive. Liked that they offered liquids throughout the flight to keep us hydrated. Good experience overall."
Cons: "Entertainment - didn't have to many movies I liked. Food was just ok. I enjoyed the soy sauce beef and rice the most."

Pros: "Food and services were great"
Cons: "Not a large selection to view on the TV"

Pros: "Service and the fact that flight was not full provided for a better experience. Staff was super friendly and attentive. The films were new and tv was big! Food was ok."

Pros: "The price was cheap ($100 for 2 people), and the service on ANA was great."
Cons: "Plane was a bit noisy, and it was a little confusing as to when we could board (but it was okay)"

Cons: "The seats are kind of flat."

Pros: "Excellent service. Good food. Great entertainment selection."
Cons: "No free WiFi"

Pros: "After some considerable panic at losing my long confirmed seat assignment as a result of weather problems in Tokyo, the doors ended up closing with at least 20 empty seats in coach. (Boeing 777-300)"
Cons: "Although it is served with care, the food on ANA (in coach) ends up being a bit too Japanese. I understand this carrier needs to cater to a broad cultural and geographic audience, but I think they make it too complicated. Giving meal service a decidedly Japanese angle results in main courses that are mush, and sides that are OK. Good yogurt, decent fruit, delicately prepared salads, delicious cookies and hagen daz are pretty simple and make the meals fun. (especially since chop sticks are always included), but the ovens turn the main courses into a stinky and kinda nasty thing. I wish they would simplify."

Pros: "It was a fast flight, the crew was very accommodating and it was very comfortable."

Pros: "Food was quite good"
Cons: "the plane was Hot! So hot we couldn't use the blankets. The staff in Tokyo did not want to let me and my twin 11 yr olds board early. We need extra time to be organised and in our seats for a very long flight. If not we block the aisle. And that is without consideration for the fact that my daughter has limited sight so needs my help and it takes time. I was disappointed that they didnt come through the cabin from time to time with snacks as most airlines do on long haul flights."

Pros: "Aircraft menu and service"
Cons: "Aircraft seat pitch"

Pros: "- Airfare Price - Ease of Checking In - Friendliness of Staffs - Aircraft is clean"
Cons: "- Entertainment options were limited - Food choices limited as well - Seats are a bit stiff and small"

Pros: "They came around often to see if we needed water or anything. Food was good."
Cons: "Tray is too small and not able to use the entertainment system because it is too short for a tall person. I would be staring down the entire time."

Pros: "Configuration of your 787-800 Busn./ Class,was nothing more than an updated 707 from the past. Crew was good food was average. A flight I may avoid."

Pros: "Wonderful service"
Cons: "Food was on the very bland side"

Pros: "The staff was so friendly, attentive, helpful and pleasant!"
Cons: "14 hours on a a plane is a long time, no matter what :/ but it is amazing to be able to fly across the world in a day! The meal schedule was weird, but after we figured it out, it was fine, and the food was pretty good too."

Pros: "Staff was wonderful and pleasant. Food was good for plane food. Entertainment was enough to get us all the way there."
Cons: "Seats in economy are a little uncomfortable, but to be expected."

Pros: "Was a smooth flight, good flight crew. Tasty food too"

Pros: "Crew are nice, helpful and polite"

Pros: "Wish there was more movies in English"

Cons: "Very hard landing."

Pros: "I liked the Service and all. Airline offered me a wheel chair since it was on a record from last flight. They escort me to the plane.and plane to my daughter at the other end."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing really major to complain about but nothing that went the extra mile..."
Cons: "The food was sub par.... And the service was very minimal. I felt that there were too few flight attendants for the large capacity of the Triple 7."

Pros: "Boarding was easy and the crew and service were excellent. Overall, the food on this flight was also enjoyable."
Cons: "I find the 777 SFO -> Tokyo, and Tokyo -> SFO cabin gets too warm when trying to sleep. With a warm blanket provided, I would suggest keeping the cabin a bit cooler and providing extra blankets if people need them. Also the movie selection on ANA is not nearly as comprehensive as what United provides on international flights."

Pros: "Crew great as always. Bulkhead seating very good for economy class.Has improved."

Pros: "The food is not bad, and the crew was good. The in flight entertainment selections were also good."
Cons: "The seats are too small to recline for someone who is about 185cm tall. I was not able to sleep, in spite of the late hour of the flight. Had a one hour layover in Istanbul, and the gates were at opposite sides of the crowded airport, which made the connection difficult."

Pros: "Loved the selection of movies. Airplane seats were comfy. Departure and connections were on time."
Cons: "Flight attendants were very slow to respond to requests and when an old passenger threw up, they didn't offer him help. They just sprayed the area and left the yuck instead of cleaning up immediately, despite my numerous requests. So you can imagine the smell."

Cons: "Very small space"

Pros: "Service is good as well as food."
Cons: "The space. The transatlantic leg was awful because the space was really limited. From IST to my final destination the leg room increased"

Cons: "Seats were cramped. Narrowest aisles I have ever seen on a long distance flight."

Pros: "Friendly airline and super organized and efficient from start to finish. By far the best airline our group has flown with!"

Cons: "Seats were horrible - I've never been so uncomfortable on an international flight. Also, seat was broken and I couldn't push it back for sleeping. Flight attendant tried to help be but seat was broken"

Pros: "Everything was perfect, the hours from Washington to Instanbul were perfect for night sleeping, the seats were comfortabl enough for sleeping, I didn't eat the late night dinner but the breakfast was good."

Cons: "A bit slow serving food."

Pros: "Entertainment, flight times, price, new plane, good luxury, in between meals food offering"

Cons: "the employees at the check in booth were so rude and unhelpful. I needed a wheelchair because I had a very bad backache, but they refused to help me and they made me wait standing up in line for over 2 hours. It was a very painful experience."

Pros: "I look forward to flying with Turkish Airlines in the future. Thanks for a good trip."

Pros: "Turkish Airlines remains my favorite - boarding process is organized, seats are comfortable, food is good, and crew is friendly and helpful."

Pros: "I liked the food and the Entertainment on board. The board crew was friendly and had always a smile."

They were very responsive to any time i needed help . And the food was amazing . Even the economy class gets gourmet meals . Also the entertainment was quite good . They have big tv screen for each seat and have all sorts of shows and movies from international to hollywood . And have games for kids ... Overall i was very pleased with my flight ."

Cons: "I booked my flight with Turkish Airlines for June 28th at 11:05 pm. A few hours before my flight, there were bombings in the airport in Istanbul, which was where I was flying into. I tried for hours to contact Turkish Airlines and their phone was disconnected. I could not reach anyone to try to re-schedule a new flight or to ask if the flight was going to be re-directed. I received no information and ended up having to book a new flight for the next day. After my flight had already left Turkish Airlines posted on their website an alert. I am shocked that it took so long to post any information and I am very upset that I was unable to reach customer service. I will NOT be choosing this airline to fly on again."

Pros: "Service was outstanding!"
Cons: "I have no complaints!"

Pros: "The company gave us a hotel for the layover."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable"

Pros: "This was my first time flying with Turkish Airlines, and I had a great experience. I travel internationally a lot and it has been by far the best airline I have been on. I love flights that give you a hot towel when you arrive, so that was a big plus in my book. The flight stewards were so helpful both on and off the flight. The food was delicious. Movie selections were freat ad well."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "The planes were clean and staff really helpful. The actual flights were great."
Cons: "At Istanbul the staff in the airport were confused about where the gate was and we missed our flight and then we had to purchase new tickets. And they did not honor our original tickets. That was almost 900 dollars gone because they would not honor our tickets. I am hoping for a refund."

Cons: "Bathroom very dirty with odors!"

Pros: "Liked the hot towel, good service and gift bag of toiletries - unique among airlines for Economy passengers."

Pros: "Food was good. Service was excellent."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Excellent flight experience"
Cons: "Delayed arrival meant my luggage didn't make connecting flight. Bad!"

Cons: "There is a sthg in the food which was plastic.and it could be really dangerous for me.I showed the hostes and said they could change in flight from istanbul to izmir."

Pros: "Food was great as well as entertaiment."
Cons: "I'm 6.2 There is no leg room for tall people. It was very uncomfortble 10 hours red eye flight. Crew was just ok."

Pros: "The food was good, as was the service."
Cons: "Delays, both at Dulles, as well as in Istanbul."

Pros: "Other than what I've mentioned below, everything was great."
Cons: "It was a pretty physically uncomfortable flight. My seat wouldn't recline even a tiny bit and it was a 9+ hour flight. The flight attendant tried to help but was unable to get it to move either."

Pros: "Care and attention the flight attendance showed."

Pros: "The crew and food were excellent! Movie choices were plentiful!"
Cons: "Travelling with my 70yr old mother.. Man sitting in front of her would recline and his head was practically in her lap. Neither of our seats reclined so it was upward bound only for almost 11hrs."

Pros: "Comfortable. Excellent service"

Pros: "Had a one hour delay without justification,but ended up landing in Douala first before Yaounde. Arrived at 4:30 am instead of 12:005am. Lost my bag up till now not seen."
Cons: "The crew, was rude to passengers with kids"

Pros: "The attendants were courteous and proficient. Even when they were being elbowed as they walked past, smiling and friendly. I will try to fly Turkish again."

Cons: "Seating was terrible. My seat was broken."

Pros: "The in-flight service to Istanbul was good."
Cons: "Once we landed at Istanbul the wheelchair service was very poor. The person in-charge was rude,did not care to provide ride to bathroom or to buy water, There was no water or bathroom nearby. The flight to Amman was cancelled/delayed. First we were told it was cancelled and would be put up in a hotel, but on the way the wheelchair driver was asked to return to office and drop us at a gate. At this gate the departure time kept changing every hour or so without any plane at the gate, or staff. This lasted till next day about 3 PM. For this long period There was no water. The was no assistance to bathroom or food or water. All the passangers were upset. They organized and went to talk to the Airline personnel. They returned frustrated since none of the Airline staff knew anything."

Pros: "Noting"
Cons: "Firs they told me there is a fligth at 11:15 pm and when i get to the airport they delay the fligth to next day morning with out notice when i call customer cervice i ask for a hotel they just dont care and they have no suggestion"

Pros: "Everything was very good"

Pros: "Food was pretty good and the inflight movie selection was robust."
Cons: "Flight was canceled due to weather but the cancelation wasn't communicated until I actually arrived at the airport. This isn't customary. Most airlines inform travelers ahead of time. Rescheduling the flight took two days and multiple calls to their customer service number which wasn't receiving calls for a full 24hrs due to call volume. Was finally placed on a new flight but the flight had a 24hr layover in Istanbul (my previous flight didn't), forcing me to pay out of pocket for food and lodging in Turkey."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and respectful."
Cons: "I wasn’t able to get my TV device to function properly"

Pros: "They were nice"
Cons: "They were good"

Pros: "Service was very good, flight was very smooth"

Pros: "The service by the flight attendants was very good starting from the welcome to the end in spite of the fact that it was quite late night flight. Also by fortunate luck I had the chance to sleep as the next three seats to me were all empty in the middle block, which made the whole trip less exhaustive."
Cons: "If the seats next to me weren't empty and I couldn't lay down across all of them it would have been a difficult flight as the economy seats are not even close with economy comfort levels of other international airlines like Turkish Airlines especially the seat pitch size. Entertainment choices could be improved by more recent movies. There were very few selection."

Pros: "The in flight crew was great"
Cons: "I arrived a bit late to the airport. 5:15pm for a 6:05p for an international flight. I realize It is very late. I was delayed by donald trump protestors blocking the highway (not your fault). Dulles was a ghost town ( abnormally slow). All I had was carry-on. They said they closed the flight. They quoted me at $1800 for a one way ticket directly from Lufthansa. The original round trip was $900. I declined, sat down for 15 min booked another Lufthansa flight online for $800, checked in and was through security by 5:50. Just in time for my original flights last call. I could have made it easily. Boooo Lufthansa booo."

Pros: "The crew was super friendly and caring. The food was great. Very enjoyable trip!!"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The food, kids friendly"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Crew very rude unlikely Lufthansa"

Pros: "Comfortable"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "On time all the time"
Cons: "Food getting worse year after year."

Pros: "they were on-time and we got from IAD to FRA in one piece."
Cons: "you had to pay $35 ahead of time just to select your seats...they only allow 1 checked bag, half the flight was empty in eco plus but they still wanted you to pay to "upgrade", integration with UAL is cumbersome and difficult as you cant manage both legs of a UAL/LH flight from one carrier. Overall mediocre but hey - Cheap fares, you get what you pay for."

Cons: "Lost my luggage ., not happy"

Cons: "bad weather, not your fault"

Pros: "All round excellent services. Food is good, but I wish but I wished More chooses or selection."

Pros: "Excellent service, on time arrival, a great experience! Everything was easy with Lufthansa, which soothed my jitters and helped me relax (as much as is possible!)"

Cons: "We were traveling 2 adults with 2 and 6 year olds. We were all seated on different rows and seats. We tried to fix it at the gate and we were given 2 seats next to each other and 2 behind each other...please train your staff to seat families together!!!"

Pros: "Fast boarding. Smooth flight. Good entertainment. Very pleasant."
Cons: "Flight attendant complained about a passanger right in fron of her in a different language. I understand both languages. Completely unprofessional."

Pros: "Selection of wine"
Cons: "The flight was delayed from Washington DC and from Frankfurt"

Pros: "Customer service friendly and attentive!"

Pros: "Smooth flight"

Cons: "24 hr delay. I was supposed to fly Lufthansa and had to deal with idiots from United from Jacksonville to IAD."

Pros: "The check in process was fast and pleasant. Boarding was fast and organized. Food and drinks were good."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable for such a long flight. Simply terrible."

Pros: "Efficient and well-run operation. Professional and attentive flight crew."
Cons: "Extremely loud engine noise in Economy Cabin. Concern on impact on hearing during transatlatic flight. Crampt seating."

Pros: "excellent dinner selection movies and on screen entertainment were great"
Cons: "2 hour wait on tarmac in Dulles for weather no one in the crew could tell us where our connecting gait was or whether we would have enough time to make it"

Pros: "This was actually a United Airlines flight connecting to a Lufthansa flight in Munich. The crew was friendly and thanked us individually for flying with them as we prepared for landing."

Pros: "Everything was amazing Very pleased!"
Cons: "Good choice entertainment but system is slow to respond and crashed on a few occasions"

Pros: "Captain was personable and made the flight more enjoyable"
Cons: "Length, which could not be helped"

Pros: "Crew carried out their jobs very professionally Entertainment selection was good"
Cons: "Lack of personal seating space"

Pros: "Lufthansa always does an excellent job."

Pros: "Timely departure."
Cons: "Fruit and a muffin is not enough for breakfast."

Cons: "No vegan food"

Pros: "Food was actually pretty good, and was plentiful. Comfortable seating."
Cons: "I don't think my tv worked."

Pros: "The flight was delayed two hours. I flew them 10 years ago and thought their seervice rivaled the Asian airlines. Now their service and seat comfort is near the cellar dwellars. The premium coach seat I paid extra for was the narrowest coach seat I have ever had the misfortune to sit in. I am a small man. 5'*8" 165lbs. The normal sized man next to me and I had to sit with our elbows pinned to our ribs. Eight hours of hell. I also had a totally irritating woman from syria behind me. She pushed and banged on my seat back the entire 8 hours. She had to have her loud mouth yapping most of the flight. That was the worse experience I have had flying. Also the attendents didnt care about me. I had to ask for tea. Had to ask three times as they were waalking off"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours. The seat was tiny , cramped and uncomfortable. I travel a lot. This is the first negative review I have written in 55 years of flying."

Cons: "flight was late, check-in people were mean and angry to everyone, instead of serving the food straight away since the overnight flight was delaed and then quickly turning the lights off, they waited until 3 hours in to serve food, which meant they didnt turn the lights off until well into the night and only gave us a couple hours to sleep. there were no new movies on board except for batman vs. superman. food tasted weird even for airplane standards. pretty bad overall. i've had better experience with virgin, united, or air france."

Pros: "On time!!!!"

Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Very small cramped seats in business class. Would not fly again."

Cons: "We were in economy class. It looked like the seats my wife and I were in were smaller than the surrounding seats. The seat I was assigned was also more narrow than the one my wife was assigned. I am tall, and could not move my legs for the trip. Also, the seat controls were on the inside is the seat. I could not move at all without turning on the overhead light or screen."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly and attentive. The flight was very smooth."
Cons: "My seat back was not easy to keep in the reclining position."

Pros: "Efficient, early check in and seat selection was simple and done from home. Got to the airport early which is unusual for me but everything went smoothly and was relatively low stress."

Pros: "Everything else was fine."
Cons: "I had paid for comfort seats ($140) extra. When I checked in at gate I was given another seat assignment (without explanation). It turned out to not be comfort seat, in fact it was the last row in the airplane. Had to get eh gate agent back, which was not fast. She said flight was full and a family had been spread out. I understand, but you can't just bump me from a paid and selected seat to a standard seat, especially on transatlantic flight after paying $140 extra. There was no apology. She went back to gate and little while later came back with a comfort seat. Some people seem not to have shown up as the seat next to me stayed open as well. It was very poorly handled."

Pros: "I love the crew, the seats, the food was wonderful and the flight was the smoothest ever. Thanks"

Pros: "Boarding was again easy, directions were clear as to where I should sit. My only trouble with the crew was that announcements were sometimes too quiet to hear at all, which I hardly cared about anyway (seat belts, please). The movie selection was unexpectedly good, as was the music section. Books were meh."
Cons: "I was not comfortable after about four hours, my biggest problem being I had already been riding in an airplane for a total of six hours that day. Food was fine, but came with salt, which was nice. I don't expect a four course meal on an airplane, but I didn't eat with gusto. The headphones provided were lousy, but I just plugged in my own set."

Pros: "Flight not too crowded. Check in allowed us to switch seats to maximize space."
Cons: "Food was just so-so."

Pros: "Lufthansa's newest 747-8 airliner was quite the treat for international flight. 100% LED lights with subtle purple-blue mood lighting overnight looks pretty and mimics Virgin's design. Dozens of movies to choose from in addition to many more entertainmrnent options in the widescreen touchscreens. And actual silverware for food, even in economy. The addition of Premier Economy (wider and longer seats) copies the design from United's Economy Plus, at the expense of regular economy's legroom (I believe). Note: if you have noise canceling earphones or headphones like myself, get the 2-jack airline adapter. Lufthansa uses the proprietary dual-jack, at least in economy."
Cons: "Pasta dinner only had 1/8 piece tomato. Stick to the chicken."

Pros: "great service, food, and crew"
Cons: "Absolutly no negatives"

Pros: "The entertainment was pretty good, the comfort okay and the crew was average."
Cons: "they messed the boarding and had us take off 4 hours late, after changing boarding gates 3 times... I missed my connecting train, and had to by another ticket full price..."

Pros: "Liked the toilets downstairs. Good selection of entertainment. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "When I checked in I was told that I could take my suitcase, which is a carry-on size suitcase, on board. While boarding I was made to check it as luggage and told it was to big and too heavy even though it weighed 12kg."

Pros: "The upper deck of the 747-8 is amazing!!! Quiet and comfortable!"
Cons: "Other airlines have a much better entertainment selection. It was still good, but definitely not "great" or "excellent""

Pros: "On time, friendly crew, comfortable seat, smooth flight, good food!"
Cons: "All good."

Cons: "The staff in the check in was not sure if i need a visa to enter Europe, viena and Frankfurt and i really explained that Albania is in shengen and we do have bio metric passport but they need to verify which took around 15-20minutes waiting there."
