Flight staff was a mixed international crew, very friendly, unpretentious, polite and just nice compared to other airlines. The planes they use seem very new. Would definitely recommend Qatar Air over Aeroflot any day."
Cons: "Food was decent for airline food but nothing to rave about and as with most airlines uses too much plastic packaging. Although I was pleased that some of the flights used metal flatware, but still too much waste in the industry in my opinion. Also, the headphone jack was not compatible with my headphones. The type used on the 777 is the dual pronged one. I did not have an adapter so had to use the crappy headphones that are provided."

Pros: "The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to find us vegetarian meals as our booking was incorrect. They had some good movies to watch that made the trip faster"

Cons: "Other passengers used my carry-on baggage space and my carry on was placed far from me."
Cons: "I have flown previously with Qatar and was not so impressed. Everything was great this trip up until my return to the United States. I should have suspected a problem when I was requested to change seat in order to assist a family who were in separate seats. Moving was difficult as the plane was being loaded. I managed to get to the seat offered to find someone sitting in it. To top it off the individual was wearing a surgical mask and carrying a large immigration bag. I requested a seat forward but I was denied and I later saw other passengers moved forward to seats that I was denied. If I had known that the flight would have been full of possibility sick immigrants I would have chosen another flight or airline. At certain times the smells were very bad. I felt as a ff member I should have been treated better or been made aware of possible health risks."

Pros: "Delay with boarding"
Pros: "Crew was very welcoming and nice"

Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "The boarding was the worst I’d ever seen! No structure, only 1 person was taking tickets to board and would stop every third person to go back to the counter and checkndomething, holding up the entire boarding process. We were supposed to start boarding at 8:05, but started at 8:35...."
Cons: "The coffee could’ve tasted better."
Pros: "Crew was awesome. Movie was awesome. Delta always comes through."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable, crew was great, overall a smooth flight"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly. Boarding was quick."
Cons: "Seat size in Comfort+ was still cramped. The person sitting next to me(in the middle was a fairly large (height not weight) and his arms and shoulders were pretty much flowing into my seat( I sat by the window). Leg room of course was fine. Very cold draft coming from the airplane(window?)"

Pros: "Simple, easy"
Pros: "Seat 2G Orderly boarding and plane clean"
Cons: "Asked to have all the food (appetizer, main course, etc) served together , as they advertise, but was told that service wasn't available. Ordered dinner, was almost as tasty as a Stouffers meal (it was some type of glop of lamb). 7 hours into flight the menu advertised a warm chocolate chip cookie, asked for one was told they THOUGHT they were out, came back about an hour later said the found one, but it wasn't warm, so I passed (not a real fan of eating food they found) About 8 hours into flight , the attendant said out of the blue that they were sorry about not providing the meal all together as requested, but that the other attendant didn't know they offered that service."

Pros: "The professionalism of Delta employees, timeliness of flt."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was delayed nearly 2 hours without any compensation to the passengers. I frequently fly jet blue and whenever they are that delayed not weather related the staff frequently gives the passengers a complimentary cocktail. Also your boarding process makes little sepnse to me why board from the front of the plane more sensible to board back to front"
Pros: "Please call me. Why did you double charge me? I took my parents for a trip and you charge me 2 twice?? Call me 416 888 4387"
Cons: "You charge me twice. Call me 416 888 4387"

Cons: "Flight left late and missed connecting flight in Atlanta. It's 9:30 pm and I'm still stuck in Atlanta airport."
Cons: "The entry into the Atlanta airport after landing was somewhat chaotic. We were backed up circling before landing for ~ 1 hour and there seemed to be an unusually large number of folks trying to get through customs/security - noe Delta's fault but an unwelcome experience after being in the air for 8+ hours."
Pros: "Very Comfy plane."
Pros: "Staff were all polite"
Cons: "The least amount of legroom I've ever had. The most cramped I've ever been and I'm 5'2 and fly a lot. Also for a 5 hour flight, I should not have been as uncomfortable as I was. There's less cushion than before."

Cons: "Lufthansa is not a pioneer flying company as you think, everything comes from Germany is low quality especially service!!!"
Pros: "The food was better than most other airlines"

Pros: "Smooth. No turbulence. On time."
Cons: "flight attendant gave me a meat sandwich when i asked for the vegetarian option due to my vegetarian diet and i became sick because of this"
Cons: "Cold on the plane/food needs more choice and improvement. Plane was late to arrive-over an hour later"
Pros: "This was our return flight back to the US much better then going to Europe!"
Cons: "The only thing i wish all airlines would consider is to give us regular folks more room(space) not just the rich people in business or first class! On a 10+hr flight it is well needed!"
Pros: "Our flight was delayed in Italy and I was worried I would miss the connecting flights to the US. But not to worry Lufthansa waited for our flight and got our luggage on board as well. The food was outstanding."

Pros: "Good service overall. Great crew."
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Pros: "Service was courteous and effective once aboard the airplane."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic, and primarily due to the fault of the boarding staff in Frankfurt. I was flying as a tourist from Switzerland, but it was easy to notice the condescending manner in which the African passengers were treated. I noticed the same attitude at immigration services in Frankfurt, were the officers were openly teasing, laughing at and harassing an Eritrean man. Some of the comments passed were frankly disgusting..."

Cons: "Lufthansa has always had great food quality but with this flight it was dissapointig."
Pros: "Smooth flight. Fairly good meals. Friendly crew."

Pros: "Barcelona airport is beautiful. The Chechen in staff was helpful and arranged wheelchair assistance for all legs of my flight"
Cons: "We requested extra leg room seats on the bulkhead. We did not get them which was not a big deal on this leg of the flight but on the flight from Frankfurt to SFO which was 10+ hours, was miserable"
Cons: "There was no entertainment in the flight , which was totallyfine for me as it was a short flight; I downloaded one magazine prior to my initial flight in SFO but was unable to access it."

Cons: "Just typically being on a plane not much can do about the space in economy"

Cons: "Boarding was slow and the plane waited almost an hour after boarding was completed."
Pros: "The flight was very smooth, take off off & landing. The crew was polite. Although they kept calling me sir when I am a woman."

Pros: "Plane was clean, crew nice and courteous."
Pros: "The Staff"
Cons: "Food was completely tasteless - of very questionable quality"
Pros: "Clean and efficient. Great service."
Cons: "Crowded seating. Need better headphones."

Pros: "The in flight entertainment"
Cons: "The headphones given were outdated and hurt the ears after a while"
Pros: "First leg got cancelled and missed all connections. So frustrating!"
Cons: "Gate agent in GRR rebooked a flight the next day, which is too late for my event in Florence. When I called Lufthansa to see if I could get on an earlier flight, they could no longer help me because the new reservation was with United."
Cons: "the food was not kosher chicken with milk at the first flight the past was owerfull"
Cons: "Seat was very narrow"
Pros: "Lufthansa always departs and lands on time or early. The seats are comfortable and the crew is even better. They ran out of food by the time they got to me and my wife, since we were sitting all the way in the back, and they repeatedly apologized and brought us something from business class to make up for it. The layover time was also very short compared to other airlines I looked up. I will try to fly with them again in the future!"
Cons: "No boarding lines. Boarded late. I was not given enough time from my arriving flight. I had to spring the length of the airport and up and down stairs as the elevators had long lines. Maybe it was good it boarded late or I wouldn't have made it."
Pros: "nothing very special but it was on time."
Cons: "It was ok"
Cons: "It was not Lufthansa but United Irlines. I wish it was Lufthansa."
Pros: "Due to unforeseen circumstances, I needed assistance with boarding. I attempted to ask the check in agent at the boarding gate and she was extremely rude to me as well as other passengers. The assistant's behavior displayed annoyance and an unwillingness to assist passengers."
Cons: "No any form of inflight entertainment Uncomfortable chairs Food was below average I had to ask 3 times for a glass of water"
Pros: "Roomy flight, professional crew, great service."
Cons: "Check in with an extra bag or overweight baggage is cumbersome. You must first check in, then take bag elsewhere to pay fee, then take bag back to check in."
Cons: "I did the email check in. When I arrive at the airport, I asked for customer service to print the boarding passes. They changed my seat assignment which not asked. This caused some confusion when we boarded."
Cons: "leg space is too tight"
Cons: "The narrow seats: it is not fun to travel with four elbows in your ribs. Try it some time."
Pros: "Great crew, very attentive. Excellent food and beverages! You don't get off of Lufthansa flight hungry! Good choice of entertainment. Lufthansa really knows how to take care of its customers on long-haul flights!"
Cons: "Online check-in is very difficult. told me that my request couldn't be completed, then when I got to the airport, they said "Oh, I see that you have already checked-in!""
