I strongly suggest if someone is bigger than a certain size then they should book 2 seats as 17 hours it wasn't easy for me to ask him to sit in a correct manner or have the handle half up so he uses my seat too Overall u satisfied and painful experience Net was slower on outbound too"

Pros: "I wish the airlines, all airlines would keep the middle seat vacant on all flights!! Such a comfortable feeling and flight. I’ve flown multiple times this summer during Covid, having that middle seat vacant has made traveling by air for me a very good, comfortable thing again.

Pros: "Everything was amazing"
Cons: "Nothing really."

Pros: "The boarding was great and moved very well. The crew super friendly and helpful."

Pros: "Everyone was very courteous, the plane took off on schedule and arrived at our destination early. Also got a complimentary upgrade to Comfort Plus."
Cons: "Ticket price was a bit much, the seats and aisle inside the plane are only made for skinny people. Aisle was barely longer across than my foot, and the guy next to me was a bit bigger than average, leaving me to have to scrunch in my seat the whole flight. Lots of elbows, butts and hips knocking into my shoulders as people boarded."

Pros: "The staff & crew were friendly. I liked having access to free entertainment. I liked being able to see the tracking of my checked bag (notifications)."

Pros: "The flight was probably only half booked, the crew was awesome, very attentive and accommodating. Legroom at seat 13A was plenty. Also the fact that messaging is free is convenient."

Pros: "The crew on this particular flight was probably the nicest I've ever encountered on Delta. Sadly, that is rarely the case."

Cons: "Flight was delayed"

Cons: "Seats are hard to get comfortable in. Headrests are awkward"

Pros: "I have always known of airlines to offer preboarding to those military members in uniform or on official orders. Delta took it one step further and allows prior service members to board also."

Cons: "Sat by the exit seat so the door was a bit more chilly. No food. Small entertainment screens with audio bleed through."

Pros: "CVG isn't a huge airport, but it has a good amount of things to keep you entertained/well fed."
Cons: "CVG security line isn't terrible, but there seemingly is ALWAYS a decent wait. When a flight is full, like this one, it's never very comfortable – even a short flight."

Pros: "How they take off and land"
Cons: "The price versus other companies"

Pros: "I love Delta airline this is what airline I pefer to go with whenever I fly anywhere they are the way for me such happy ppl and so much help."

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Very uncomfortable flight. Seats are to close to each other"

Pros: "Crew was very good and nice on the flight"
Cons: "Flight terminal was changed about 30 to 45 minutes before boarding Flight was delayed due to AC problem Configuration of the plane was terrible. Little leg room but the windows did not align with the seats so a window was shared with two rows making it challenging to open or close a window without disturbing the passenger in the other row with whom the window is being shared. No charging outlets in the terminal or on the plane. Plane had no food to offer for purchase. Expected better from Delta."

Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "No entertainment"

Cons: "Small plane to Minneapolis with one bathroom and the flight to sna didn't have my request for a gluten free meal."

Cons: "Delta costumer service was terrible. Cancelled my trip twice. They lied to us saying that they were going to give vouchers for hotel, that we were going to be automatically booked for next flight and that our bags would arrive with our flight. Waited 7hs to talk to an agent in the airport. 24h wait in Atlanta had to sleep in airport. They wanted me to wait three days in atlanta. They forced me to check a carry on because they didn't have room in the plane. They told me my bag would arrive with my flight. It never did. I still dont have by only bag. Unbelievable."

Pros: "gate personnel delivered bad news routinely"
Cons: "contingency planning was zero to get flight crews to next flight..."

Pros: "Boarding time and schedules were as expected or faster and good attention from the flight crew."
Cons: "Breakfast was mediocre for First Class."

Cons: "Delta allowed us to board knowing of possible weather delays at the destination! Once on board the captain announced that we could not take off due to weather at the destination! Why didn't they let us just sit in the airport until Delta knew one way or another? Been sitting, trapped in the plane, no AC, no announcement from the flight crew. Could be waiting in relative comfort inside the airport!!"

Cons: "The 2+ hour delay"

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "I don't get it.. why airlines have no pride? Tickets are expensive! Fuel is lately cheap.. a Don't get it.. why do they keep crying and act like poor helpless companies? You are connecting 2 major cities in the US... can you please have some pride and offer a Nice airplane and not a crappy old one? Can you have some service going beyond just a soda? It doesn't make sense! When you fly in Europe with any major airline company (not low cost..), no matter how long or short the flight is, minimum you get a sandwich and abundance of drinks.. not with Delta (or any other american airline company).. pontless. We always get treated like cattle.. but they like keeping the prices of tickets expensive, don't they???"

Pros: "Rebooked to Atlanta because of a delay."
Cons: "Delta notifications and Kayak notifications were giving me conflicting information, however once I arrived at the Houston airport a Delta representative clarified my issues."

Pros: "Great flight. Flight attendant was hilarious and extremely helpful to all even as we were grounded for a bit in Atlanta due to weather!!!!! Flight crew was stellar while traveling thru an extremely thick cloud deck."

Pros: "When we were landing!!!!"
Cons: "To crowded, seats to to!!! close need personal space not everyone baths!!##!!"

Cons: "Airline food could always be better. It wasn’t bad though."

Cons: "Boarding in order, by the seat numbers. That’s the only thing y’all can improve on. It was my first time booking with Lufthansa, and I will definitely book with y’all again."

Pros: "Crew was competent"
Cons: "The plane was hot the entire flight"

Cons: "The first leg to Frankfurt was 6 hours late. Missed connection, missed next possible connection, and waiting in line to try to get last possible flight out. Everyone's schedule has been turned upside down."

Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "Flights being on time. Friendlier staff. They would t have misplaced my luggage."

Pros: "Crew was amazing"

Pros: "Perfect in everything"
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Leg room"

Pros: "Lufthansa are excellent. Makes the US carriers look awful in comparison. Good seats, great service, on time, zero complaints."
Cons: "Some of the other passengers were annoying"

Pros: "We were traveling from IAH gto FRA with two dogs. One in a crate and one in a small carry on dog bag. Lufthansa handled the process very well. They expected us at the airport, helped us through the entire checkin with a smile, helpful information and care. They brought us and our dog to TSA and after boarding confirmed that our dog had been loaded and safely taken care of. The cabin crew also checked on us and our in cabin dog. I don't know any other airline that makes traveling with a dog so easy and pleasant."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Seat was excellent. I like the blanket and more than anything real silverware...unfortunately for bad food"
Cons: "Food real bad, hope it will be better from Frankfurt"

Cons: "Small plane, a price for everything."

Cons: "There was no drink service because of “turbulence”. I did not notice any turbulence."

Pros: "Clean"
Cons: "Seats way too small and tight. Flight delayed over and over."

Pros: "Crew was helpful"
Cons: "The plane was 1 hour late and the plane wasn't even at the gate for its expected departure time. The boarding process was too long and take off took too long, thus causing me to miss my connecting flight. So that I missed my Saturday interview."

Pros: "The airbus looked nice, crew was friendly."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic, the seats were ok. The USB port did not work and the touch screen was unresponsive, hard to use. Four bathrooms in the middle of the plane did not seem sufficient, toilet paper running out, long wait."

Pros: "On time, pleasant, comfortable."
Cons: "Honestly all good!"

Pros: "I like everything about this airline. The entire crew is always happy to serve and extremely helpful. The food is very good and served hot. When our flight was delayed and it was questionable whether we'd make our Lufthansa connection, there was a small bus with 2 Lufthansa crew members waiting for us on the ground - they escorted us through Customs and directly to the door of the airplane so that we'd make the flight. Service I have never gotten on an American airline!"

Cons: "Got to pick a seat when signing in"

Pros: "Food was great"
Cons: "Hot in cabin and service poor. Seat not comfortable still prefer united clasd"

Pros: "Flight Crew was very nice and helping in general. Flight was very in time and comfortable on both segments."
Cons: "Ground crew at Frankfurt was felt to be discriminatory in behaviour and we had to walk to next departing gate after waiting for our wheelchair."

Pros: "Nice big plane, good/frequent beverage service."
Cons: "Didn’t arrive on time. Breakfast was weird and flavorless."

Pros: "I like everything. Everything orderly and perfect."
Cons: "The screen for viewing movies were not functioning all the time."

Pros: "Well in time"
Cons: "We were not offered veg and non veg options. We were only offered a vegetarian meal. A minute later, the gentleman behind us was presented the two options. We disregarded this on the first flight, but when it happened on the next flight similarly, we asked if we could get our children the chicken meal. The air hostess explained they had no more. But she presented the two options to the fellow passenger behind us. We were extremely offended by the way we were treated. The airlines offers no entertainment for children as do other airlines. In fact, one air hostess went so far as to ask me to tell my Lil one to MUTE the volume of his ipad."

Cons: "Unprofessional behavior of the checkin counter agent at IAH was disappointing. The registration of food choice online didn’t get through hence had to deal with pasta Airbus 380 seats selected by us on the upper deck seemed to lack cushion and hence very uncomfortable"

Cons: "More food favorites"

Pros: "excellent service and crew"

Pros: "Excellent crew-seats were decent-not as good as Emirates., but doable. Seats from Frankfurt to Bengaluru in India were smaller than US domestic airlines-a feat thought unachieveable!!"
Cons: "Food was terrible-choice for dinner was Salmon or pasta with tomato sauce! Obviously picked the salmon which was sitting on a bed of soggy rice and a dinner roll that was so cold, I could cool my drink with! It was also hard enough to use for self-defense. The entertainment system was so bad, the kid behind me was punching the screen!! It took me 5 minutes to wait for the screen to respond and it was not much larger than my phone. Again, miss Emirates-this will be my last flight on Lufthansa!!!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Disaster customer service .. cancelled and mtssed flights"

Pros: "Evrything"
Cons: "Nothing that i can think of."

Pros: "Seats on PE were comfortable, on time, clean flight."
Cons: "The worst crew possible, absolutely no concept of customer service, Last flight on lufthansa....so no more complaints Customers needs training on how to use the LOO."

Cons: "The delay of the flight without thinking of how to take care of the passengers or even appease them after almost 4hours delay"

Pros: "Very helpful and nice cabin crew, very tasty food! And comfortable sitting. Would recommend to a friend."
Cons: "That damn crying kid behind me that kept kicking my chair and crying the whole 8 hours."

Pros: "They did it again, lost my bag for the emth time. But this time its seems to be more complicated than previous times this has happened. Just hope i’ll get my bag back eventually."

Cons: "Overall okay. Boarding was substandard"

Pros: "The food was good and they provided a good amount of snacks and drinks as well. My movie screen would not play with sound and they found me a different seat."
Cons: "The layover time was terrible. Only 1 hour in Frankfurt. I barely made my next flight and that's only because I ran since the boarding time is about 30 minutes before the flight leaves. Their "minimum layover time" needs to be lengthened. I'd like to know if any of the people who make that decision have ever tried to make a flight with such a short layover."

Pros: "Flights themselves were ok with friendly crew."
Cons: "Only two passport gates for non EU passengers at Frankfurt. Four employees at EU gates sat there and laughed at the angry crowd. Lufthansa should have anticipated this mass of people and had appropriate passport checkers there from that company. "Not our fault" does not cut it. Two planes 600 people each landed at same time. I'd guess a quarter missed connection. The process of rescheduling was a comedy of lies and inefficiency and lack of concern. Worst air travel experience ever. Ruined first two days of my vacation. Oh yea forgot the worst. No air conditioner running on runway at Houston at three in afternoon. Passengers visibly sweating before a nine out overseas flight. Blamed it on a mistake."

Pros: "Staff was friendly and attentive"
Cons: "First of all, the boarding took an hour longer than it should have been so we all sat in the plane dripping with sweat, because it was 100 degrees in Houston and the plane didn't have A/C on until we took off. Food was not good, some mysterious meat they called beef stew and veggies with strange texture. We ended up drinking more since the food was bad. The entertainment choices were OK but the equipment was a bit ancient, my husband's screen ( we sat in the front where screen pulled out of the seat) was broken and was held by a duct tape(???!!!) The seats are small, I have flown with other companies on transatlantic flights and their seats are bigger and more comfortable in economy class."

Pros: "The seats are normal, the food was fine, but the service was lovely, smooth and always with a smile. We left arrived in Frankfurt almost on time and I would definitely fly Lufthansa again!"

Pros: "Flight crew was decent."
Cons: "The flight was late in departing and then rerouted from Frankfurt to Manchester causing many passengers to loose connection. The reasongiven was a crew scheduling issue. Compensation upon arrival at Frankfurt was nil unless you asked and if you did you got an insulting 7 euros which barely even paid for coffee. No apology to people given just a "business as usual, it is your problem attitude". At arrival in Frankfurt there was a pass the buck attitude where any questions of connecting flights, and reroutes was forwarded to a Lufthansa counter that was NOT manned by anyone. Very frustrated."

Pros: "It was UA. Not Lufthansa."

Pros: "Comfort, yummy food, exceptional customer service, but the best part had to be the amazing service when checking in at IAH.....the lady who checked us in delivered the best customer service I have ever received by an airline....I would love if she received some appreciation....she was super professional, courteous, friendly to my daughter, explained everything and made sure I understood, and then said "I'll see you upstairs Mrs. Manderfeld to help you further....at the gate" WOW! If only all airline check was like this!"
Cons: "The whole experience was fantastic! I've always rated and preferred Emirates and Etihad but this airline experience has changed my mindset....Thank you!"

Pros: "the crew was good"
Cons: "the seating was cramped. could use more leg room. The food was average."

Pros: "We requested a special meal to accommodate multiple food allergies, and they both promised and provided it."

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "I'm even still here i miss it my flight i have told they are going put me to another flight but I have not received any call yet from"
Cons: "I'm still waiting"

Pros: "Lots of entertainment. Everything fine."

Pros: "Movie selection was great, food was ok as was the service."
Cons: "Boarding and deplaning was nothing short of a cattle call. No plane ettiquette and no direction from the crew on how to properly deplane. I am a 6'2" tall person stuck in between two 300+ men. Not only did I feel uncomfortable I felt unsafe. When I asked if I could upgrade to premium economy or even business it was a straight no without even looking in the system to see if their were open seats. The girl in front of me ate with her seat reclined which allowed me a whole inch of space to bring my food to my mouth. Terrible airline and terrible experience. If I could cuss in this review I would."

Cons: "No internet available (2020). For the my previous flight, a month ago, was the same problem."

Cons: "Very nice crew and great food"

Pros: "Very nice airplane and pleasant crew"

Pros: "The plane ✈️ itself the attendants . The entertainment on board. Really great"
Cons: "Nothing dissatisfying about the flight nor the airline staff . Very polite, very professional. It was a Great flight. For long trips this airline is one of the best."

Pros: "15 years ago I told myself not to fly Delta anymore. But these 2 flights Detroit to Amsterdam and back changed my mind. I enjoyed the flight very much and I'm looking forward to the next one."

Cons: "A little bit chaotic when they loaded two planes at the same time in a very tight space in Amsterdsm but this was most likey an airport soecific design issue and not a KLM issue. The flight was as good as can be expected fir an international flight. The staff was great"

Pros: "Professional crew. Good simple check in."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Almost everything, especially the crew."
Cons: "Don’t feel like anything should be better to be honest"

Pros: "The crews were pretty great!"
Cons: "The regulating of the temperature."

Cons: "Delay due to strike"

Pros: "very nice crew"
Cons: "my bagfage was lost"

Cons: "KLM crew exceed our expectations"

Cons: "I congratulate the KLM crew!"

Pros: "Crew was great and helpful despite oversight in my special meal."

Pros: "Crew helpful. Food good."
Cons: "Better range of movies please"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "KLM lost one piece of my luggage"

Cons: "KLM was not prepared to get wheel chair passenger off plane. Cost me delay of 1 hour. I will never fly KLM again."

Pros: "The entertainment was amazing"
Cons: "The seats were a bit hard"

Pros: "My seat"
Cons: "My suitcase wasn’t in the plane. 8 hours in the plane and no one offered us water. We had to look for flight attendant. Entertainment wasn’t great not too many choices and quality of screens was poor"

Pros: "Being fed was amazing and watching free TV was great!"
Cons: "I wish there were personal fans because it got uncomfortably hot sandwiched between people"

Cons: "We were changed from KLM to Airiltalia without any information sent so only because I tried to check in did I find out the flight on KLM was cancelled and we were changed to Airitalia. The Airitalia flight was very mediocre."

Pros: "Very pleased with KLM - efficiency all round and especially the baggage handling at Schipol swhere I had 20 minutes to transfer and my baggage came back with me to the UK which is no mean feat given the hustle and bustle of such a large airport"
Cons: "No downsides at all"

Cons: "Inflight was better than I expected. But needs upgrading air crafts."

Cons: "lost baggage"

Pros: "We got to Amsterdam on time"
Cons: "1. Paying for the seats we chose...that will never happen again...I'll fly another airline first. 2. The food was terrible. I have flown KLM for years, this was not what I expected. 3. The plane was very dirty"

Cons: "None of our 4 checked bags arrived with us. This was despite ample connection time (2+ hours) in Amsterdam."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Nice that wine was served without charge."
Cons: "Announcements from the cockpit were hard to hear. Food has been better in past."

Pros: "Crew where awesone and the choice of entertainment was fantastic"
Cons: "Seats way to close together"

Pros: "Overall booking and airport was ok. Food was also actually quite good."
Cons: "A comfort of the seats... well its economy class in the end. Entertainment was just dreadful - small screen with visible pixels - I was unable to watch any movie."

Pros: "The flight was perfect! Great food,movies and I even got to sleep !"
Cons: "All was well!"

Pros: "Crew was great, very nice"
Cons: "Not enough legroom"

Pros: "Good flight, arriving well on time."

Pros: "Great on board service from a very professional crew."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing."

Pros: "The crew was fantastic! Our needs were constantly being met and just about the time you thought you might want a snack or a meal, the attendants were already heading down the aisle. Because of an allergic reaction, I asked for ice a number of times and the attendants were more than happy to meet my needs."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. The trip from New York to Amsterdam seemed a lot more comfortable than the return flight. The food from NYC JFK was better than the food from Amsterdam. The movie selection on both flights was a little disappointing."

Pros: "Left ontime and service was excellent."

Cons: "Bag was lost"

Cons: "Old airplane with not really comfy seats. No outlets for charging devices. Very old entertainment screen."

Pros: "Thankful for coffee being served without charge. Not all airlines do that."

Cons: "magazines very dog eared and some badly torn"

Pros: "Loved this 747! Crew was professional and food was very good."
Cons: "We had a long wait (25 minutes) at the gate because we were early."

Pros: "It was a short flight so it was O.K."
Cons: "Boarding was odd. Go to airport early and counters were not open, did on line check in so was able to avoid the self check in at airport. Also self check in luggage seems confusing with no ground crew to help. It didn't affect me but lots of confused passenger."

Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "Good flight, we got a nice snack despite it being a short flight, the staff was great."

Pros: "Excellent service and comfortable flight"
Cons: "Flight delay roughly an hour"

Pros: "Fine as delta flights go"

Pros: "Flight was on time, crew professional, food and drinks good and kept coming. I learnt Dutch on the in-flight entertainment system. I was in a good mood talking to another passenger about his new luggage system. This mood was kept and not taken away on the flight."
Cons: "Would be nice if there was wifi on board"

Pros: "The price was nice."
Cons: "Plane looked unkept on exterior. Crew was nice but lazy."

Pros: "Left on time, arrived ahead of time. Baggage arrived very promptly. Seats comfortable."
Cons: "Very limited movie choices on inflight entertainment. Seatbelt short, unable to keep secured except sitting straight in seat. No food which is now typical most domestic flights 4 hours or less."

Pros: "Flights left on time, arrived ahead of time. Seats comfortable. Baggage arrived quickly. No charge for wine/beer, although I do not imbibe when flying long distance. Food ok for airline food."
Cons: "Unable to pick seats in advance,, were assigned seats that did not recline for 11 hour flight. One bathroom not functioning. Very limited movie choices for inflight entertainment. Seat belts much shorter than other airlines, so very confining, unable to loosen to relax in any position other than sitting straight in seat. In Rome had to check in & go through security at Terminal 5 then get bussed to Terminal 3. Only airport where we had to take out all electronics, including converter plugs, headphones, etc, place in a flimsy clear plastic bag ( that broke ) to go through security. Line to check bags pretty slow for number of passengers. Glad we had plenty of time."

Pros: "Very good flight.I recommend it to everyone."
