Cons: "Crew on flight back to philly not as helpful"
Cons: "The Nairobi airport experience could use a bit of help. there's no a/c and even late at night, it was uncomfortably hot everywhere. Once I'd checked in to the gate I was trapped and couldn't easily leave to get water or go to the restroom, which was increasingly annoying as my flight was delayed. Pretty sure all of this is beyond Qatar Airways' ability to control."
Cons: "Delayed flight meant missed connection and had to stay overnight. Very little communication from the airline about what arrangements were being made. Was also unable to check in online on either leg."
Cons: "Poor Flight and worst food and bad staff from Doha Airport. Worst food in qatar flight"
Pros: "Crew was amazing"

Pros: "Very poor Service on a 16 hour flight"
Cons: "Houston airport qatar airways check in office has 4 counters and 2 were for people who electronically checked in and they were only a few and other 2 counters were for the huge line. Need more counters. Doha airport has majority of Indian national personell at check in and luggage checkins. They have to learn some manners and be polite with people. Rudeness is a turn off passengers who are tired"
Cons: "The airline demaged both of my completely new suitcases. They both had TSA approved locks. One of the suitcses has a missing wheel, another one ripped zipper and missing lock and it was wraped in plastic. A few items were missing from that bag."

Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "2 bag checks allowed and being giv n th option to check in an additional carry on at no charge."
Cons: "Boarding was hodge-podge. Seats are way too close together for a long haul...person's tray in front of me was in my face the entire trip and she didn't bother inclining throughout so had to eat my meals like a contortionist. Cramming more seats into a finite space seems to be what all airlines are doing these days. This of us whom are above average in height are forced to insure a more painful and uncomfortable flight as a result."
Pros: "Everything was good ... we were on time .. no delay so .. perfect !"
Cons: "We took off in a terrible storm with lightning striking all around the plane. Very rough, lightning which scared the hell out of both me and my wife."
Pros: "The entertainment choices were great."
Cons: "We sat in front of a row of children who kicked the back of my seat for 13 hrs straight. We spoke to a flight attendant about it early on in the flight, spoke to the kids and spoke to the parents. Then spoke to the kids and parents mid flight. And then spoke to them all, including a flight attendant towards the end of the flight. The issue was never resolved. We asked to change our seats but could not. We asked for the parents to trade seats with the kids and they would not. It was the worst, most uncomfortable flight I have ever taken. And I fly regularly for work and for pleasure. It was an absolutely horrible experience. I was actually in tears on the flight because I was so tired, uncomfortable and frustrated."
Cons: "Better kits for kids to keep them busy longer. The one that was provided kept my kid busy for about an hour or so in a 12hr flight."

They made sure the older 3 got their infotainment system working and setup the bassinets for the twins."

Pros: "Food is good . Service is good"
Cons: "Airline appear to be harassing passengers with excessive overage charges. DXB is supposed to be a shoppers paradise. They are weighing dutyfree bags too along with cabin baggage. Eg: they charged me $56 for 2 kgs overage. I am very disappointed."
Cons: "Upon arrival at the final destination, I couldn’t find one of my 2 checked baggages, asked the emirates ground staff and i was told that they were unable to track the bag and not sure if it was loaded on to the aircraft at the origin airport or lost in transit. Lost my wedding suite and fiancé ‘s wedding gown and plenty other wedding things."

Pros: "Great entertainment set up, a free hour of wifi and good food. The wifi was priced fairly. Overall, it was a pleasant flight that I even managed to go to sleep. I normally can't sleep on planes."

Pros: "First time on an Airbus and it was a much more comfortable plane. Seats were roomy with more leg room, entertainment was better."

Pros: "The business class seats were on the new Boeing 777 planes were very well equipped with the biggest screens I have ever encountered throughout my many travels. Service provided by cabin crew was great, too."
Pros: "Service is fantastic and all the amenities. They pretty much think of everything. The warm towels at the end of the flight, the travel bag for the long international trips were perfect. The staff is very welcoming and helpful and we were in economy so I can only imagine what it must be like in First Class! Also the free entertainment is phenomenal- wide range of choice. We also enjoyed the outside cameras that help you see views from the outside. Pretty cool!"

Pros: "As expected"
Pros: "Everything was on time. Very comfortable. Nice service."
Pros: "Whole experience was poor"
Cons: "Passenger seated next to me was bigger than the seat could take the whole flight it was u uncomfortable for me to even move an inch He was a smoker and smelt really bad I was told the seat next to me would be empty There was no space for my bag as others brought more than 1 piece of luggage with them on board The toilets weren't checked it was wet and dirty throughout Usually I fly 2/4 times in 60 days with emirates but this was the worse experience I had things on my tray before landing the hostess rudely asked me to put it in the pocket ahead of me as she didn't want to take it from me which is what I had originally requested for On the outbound flight I think your net package by mistake charged me Twice ! 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: "Enough room to move around. Very much spacious"
Pros: "On time. As comfortable as coach can be. Crew was friendly and helpful. The bag checkthrough/transfer from flydubai to emirates worked fine."

Pros: "The way they receive and the way they take care of passangers"

Pros: "Entertainment was top notch. Wasn't bored"
Cons: "Food could be less processed / more drink service"

We had a 14 hour flight and the attendants worked very hard to keep us satisfied. I would definitely fly Swiss again

Better entertainment options and faster boarding.

Pros: "Wasn't awake, can't say"
Cons: "Probably it would be nice to have a bit bigger screen with general information about the flight and local time"
Cons: "We were packed like sardines! My flight made me want to retire from traveling!"
Pros: "The crew was very professional and helpful. If you travel Business Class it is very pleasant. But if you are traveling Economy the boarding management and economy seats suck! Many people were complaining about how narrow the economy seats are on the A320/330 aircraft."
Cons: "Swiss has finally done it! If you are a person who is large framed, around 225 lbs or higher you will not fit into their economy seats. I'm quite athletic and not obese but large framed (ex- football player), I could not sit squarely in the seat as my hips were severely pinched. Misery :("
Pros: "Food was good ."
Cons: "Didnt turn on the AC until were in air, implying that everybody was sweating for 30min from boarding to ip in air. Crew refused Green Tea, saying it is only offered in Business class"
Cons: "Swiss Air from Athens to Zurich stellar—excellent service, seating, food—but left one hour late due to air traffic. Nearly missed connecting Edelweiss flight—and that flight was just terrible. Passengers behind me constantly kicking, pulling my seat—wouldn’t allow me to put seat in recline position."
Cons: "Food could be better"
Pros: "crew"
Cons: "children entertainment"
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Pros: "The transfer after the flight was very helpful."
Cons: "Entertainment was absent."
Cons: "I asked the Chinese flight attendant in economy to please ask the man in front of me to put his seat up since the captain and purser had already asked us to do so in three languages The man in front of me refused to do so. She said she was going to start at the front of the plane and let him leave his seat back making it difficult to see my tv monitor. I thought that she should’ve said that it was time to put your seat up. It was frustrating that she didn’t support me and the request of the captain. Your seats are very uncomfortable upright when the person in front of you has their seat back."
Pros: "Crew were amazing."
Cons: "I’m a small person & your seating is cramped & uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Friendly and caring attendants. Smooth flight. Good condition of the aircraft."
Pros: "i liked the food and the crew. they were nice."
Cons: "the flight was good. nothing to not like."
Pros: "I was flying business class so staff, food, etc was excellent"
Cons: "I do not understand why arriving to checkin with 90 min, on a DIRECT flight, in business class they can decide to not lead luggage at ZRH. We had to wait for all luggage to come out, then go to lost and found, what is more puzzling is that then they tell you the luggage will be loaded on next flight, arrive at night, but will not deliver it until after 3PM on next day. This is flying business class. Swiss begins to feel like a low cost"
Pros: "My own seat had ample legroom, good crew."
Cons: "Faulty headphone jack and person who kneed me in the back whenever I recline my seat. 8 kilo limit on carry-on luggage."
Pros: "Cabin crew were friendly, efficient, courteous Refreshments generous and excellent. Good movies."
Cons: "Rather than boarding economy passengers by row number, there is a free-for-all at the gate, and tedious blockage in the aisles as passengers wait for others to place carry-on luggage. More leg-room than United, but still a bit crowded for tall people. VERY BAD DESIGN of arm-rests, which do not go up all the way into the seat but instead jut out at an angle."
Cons: "Reviewing Business class Nothing memorable at all. An ok dinner after take off followed by a tiny salad 8h later before landing. Quite minimal for such a long flight. The entertainment system needs special mention for its awfulness. The system in Business class would be considered poor even in Econ - small screen, terrible picture quality and a painful, prehistoric interface."
Pros: "Four economy short-hauls in two days: That extra tad legroom (A321, A320, CS100) Planes are very clean Good quality snacks Great staff"
Pros: "Quick and easy- no problems. We had drink service and a yummy croissant. Flights attendants were really nice and spoke great English."
Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "The business class seats were just like the economy class, not wider or extra space, only an empty seat in between, not worth the money. The first flight from Cairo to Zürich, no meal or snack was offered. Very disappointed in Swiss business class"
Cons: "The space for each seat was much too small, especially for the long uncomfortable flight. Seats also uncomfortable to sit on."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "They lost my bag for 6 days. It was an absolute horrible experience. There was a disconnect between their outsourced baggage tracer company and Swiss. Will NEVER fly again."
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Service."
Cons: "Not enough leg room."
Pros: "Service was remarkable - food far superior! Will be my airline of choice going overseas."
Pros: "The food provided and the service was excellent."
Cons: "The space between the seats are super small and uncomfortable. For a long flight you can barely sleep and your legs hurt after a while."
Cons: "Very rough landing. They dropped plane 5 or 6 times minutes before landing almost puked my guts out"
Pros: "The Swiss personnel both on board and off (check in) were courteous, efficient and very nice."
Pros: "+ Crew, professional and polite."
Cons: "- food unevenly cooked - No entertainment - Small toilet"
Pros: "The staff was helpful and professional and kind. The equipment was new and clean. The flight was on-time and uneventful. I would fly this airline again any day of the week."
Pros: "Aircraft clean, staff friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Lighting in aircraft is too bright Food offers by swiss in economy is terrible. My company di a not support business class travel"
Pros: "gluten free option included gluten free bread, but meal itself was quite bland."
Cons: "in-flight entertainment screen for my and my husband's seats were not working. we complained to the flight attendant who said that they would reset the system, but they never did."
Pros: "This was my first time flying on Swiss Air. Beautiful aircraft and a very friendly crew. Food was good and our flight was on time. Lots of options for in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "The boarding process was not ideal. This was our first time in the Zurich airport and we were not aware of the passport check at the gate. There were no signs and several passengers tried to board without the stamp only to be sent to the passport check line. Very frustrating. Also, there was no organization so everyone just rushed forward when boarding was called. They should consider boarding by rows to make it a more orderly process. Finally, there was no leg room at all. I realize airlines are trying to squeeze every passenger in that they can, but this was ridiculous. I'm 5'11" and my knees were pinned against the seat in front of me."
Pros: "The crew was terrific."
Cons: "Economy seating very cramped. Cramped seat conditions, inability of video screen to articulate sufficiently to allow seeing the picture when the seat ahead was reclined."
Pros: "The food and beverage offerings were very good. The service was excellent."
Cons: "I wish the dinner service flying from JFK to ZH could be made sooner in the trip to allow more lights out time to relax and try to sleep. I wish all the movies had subtitles so I could read rather than have to deal with the head phones and the bad quality sound they produce."
Pros: "Very clean"
Cons: "There was a supposed difficulty with my entry in Europe when I tried to Check into Chicago. I thought that I had to cancel my flight. Swiss air representatives had to do much consultation, which took nearly an hour, while I was standing there the whole time. At the end, I was thanked for my patience and told all should be well and not even given a small upgrade for the distress this caused me. Traveling is disagreeable in general now, and personally, even moreso after this episode."
Pros: "Seat spacing better on the short flight than the long flight -- where is the Swiss logical thinking ---- apparently this is a myth"
Cons: "Swiss boarding is a Charlie Foxtrot"
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: "Very positive opinion about the flight."
Cons: "The most of the passengers are Russian speaking. It will be good to make all the announcements in Russian language also."
Pros: "Excellent inflight experience with the entertainment; snacks were plenty, crew was very efficient."
Cons: "Notithing to dislike comes to mind."
Pros: "Cabin crew was very nice and organized."
Cons: "Flight delayed , and while waiting for long time I was not sure which gate to wait infront."

Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Loved the entertainment options, and pretty Good food!"
Pros: "Seats very confortabile"
Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Few seats in boarding area"
Pros: "Not much I liked at all for the rave I’ve been hearing."
Cons: "Crew needs attitude adjustments, as well as the whole aircraft could use a makeover - it’s completely outdated. Plus, the layover in Istanbul was horrible! There were people not wearing masks, and airport staff wasn’t even enforcing any safety even if they saw wrong things happening."
Pros: "Outstanding and conscientious crew."
Cons: "Seats continue to get more narrow and rows are moved closer and closer. However, the Turkish Air seats are among the most comfortable, relatively speaking."
Pros: "Chem-in"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "My seat wasn't working properly and wasn't comfortable."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive, and the food was outstanding."
Cons: "The wine list was a bit limited."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Food was late and terrible seating arrangements were horrible they placed my infant in a different section don’t recommend it if you are old or traveling with family"
Cons: "They dont give water when u ask for it, everything else was good"
Pros: "The flight was excellent. Thank you."

Pros: "Food and entertainment was great"
Pros: "Service was great"
Cons: "The seat was very tight and behind me was kid that make messy and noisy to much , and one of the women was smelling very bad"
Pros: "Everything went perfect."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Leg room especially between Houston and Istanbul fo"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "The ground and flight crews were outstanding. Boarding was easy in Houston. I got to see the flight crew handle a medical emergency and saw that they were well prepared, efficient, and concerned. The food and entertainment were fine. I felt like the seat space was better than on British which I often use. I had an empty seat next to me however. I was impressed that the flight crew moved a taller gentleman to a premium (exit) seat to accommodate his extra tall stature. He didn't ask, but they wanted him to be comfortable."
Cons: "The airport in Istanbul is pretty manageable. They changed the gate on us twice for the connection, which meant a bit of walking. But the crowd was pretty manageable compared to LHR."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "good flight"
Cons: "na"
Cons: "Turkish Airlines sells you a long layover business class ticket but then cannot deliver the promised hotel as American passport holders cannot leave the airport So enjoy your 22 hour layover in the gate area This is fraud This change in visa for USA passport holders was known for weeks but they chose not to let customers know when booking the tickets Kayak You should take this up with Turkish Airlines as this is blatantly false advertising and you are supporting this fraud on your site by not highlighting the restrictions"
Cons: "Alaways delays"
Pros: "Paying only half of what other USA airlines offered we had a one stop trip from (IAH) Houston to (TLV) Tel Aviv and were served two meals with offerings of other food if needed. I don't know what was served but it was good yet very different from what we eat in Texas. Then we had a 2 1/2 hour layover in (IST) Istanbul Turkey which gave us plenty of time to get off the plane, shuttle to the terminal gate then walk around the airport for about an hour before heading to the next gate for our connecting flight. The crew was very pleasant and the flight very smooth."
Cons: "The landing in Instanbul Turkey was very poorly done, by far the worst I've ever experienced but the rest of the flight and connecting Turkish Airlines flight to Tel Aviv was great. The seats are very cramped but not much different than any other economy seat I've had on any other USA airline. The price of the ticket more than made up for the seat."
Pros: "The flight crew was great. The ride was smooth"
Cons: "The food was ok....Not an option for vegetarian"
Pros: "The food and boarding went fine."
Cons: "There was no air in our section of the plane. The entire flight from Houston to Istanbul was miserable. It was 85 degrees or higher, and every chance we got to complain to a flight attendant was met with dismissal. We were told they were trying to fix it, but really there's nothing they could have done, and they shouldn't have made it sound like if we just waited a little the problem would get fixed. Not only was it hot, but there was no actual air flow of any kind, and as a person with Asthma this was extremely uncomfortable. Our section was right behind the first class section, and the flight attendants kept trying to keep us separated with the curtains, even though the only way we were getting any air was from that cabin. We consistently requested them to leave the curtains open in the hopes that some air would make it's way to us, but there was little change. Some families with newborns were moved to first class, and some passengers were able to scout out and find other available seats throughout the plane, but for the majority of us in that section, we had no air, and were treated very poorly for as much discomfort as we were going through. There was no apology and little acknowledgement to the problem at hand and I felt personally very disrespected by the whole experience."
Pros: "I was very impressed that I am already looking to travel again with the airline on my next travel!"
Pros: "Flight left on time. Crew was friendly and was multilingual. Entertainment on our personal monitors was good."
Cons: "Overall it was a good flight but since I was not familiar Turkish Air, there were some glitches. Although I'm not wheelchair bound, I have great difficulty walking distances with fear of falling. I was never offered some assistance by the Houston airport or the airline at this point. The seating on the plane is difficult to maneuver for a disabled person. The flight was OK except for cramped spaces. The flight left on time and that was good considering Houston had just gone through the hurricane."
Cons: "The country"
Pros: "As usually, the crew, good, entertainment, and comfort were all marvelous."
Cons: "The boarding process was slower than normal though it seemed out of control of the Turkish Airlines staff."
Pros: "They went above and beyond to ensure comfort"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, food was ok . Staff were friendly"
Cons: "The service was a bit relaxed, with kids I had a little hard time getting attention promptly"
Pros: "The overall experience was good"
Cons: "The food is not so good."
Pros: "That I heard great things about Turkish Airlines"
Cons: "Staff at the gate and on the plane were rude. At the gate, I asked if there was an isle seat or an emergency row seat available (because I have long legs and long feet) and he said he would check and see. Well, he failed to inform me if any of the seats were available, so I sat in a window seat to Istanbul and a middle seat to Venice. I had to pay $160 for an extra bag to Venice. I asked if the airline allowed military members to check a third bag for free, I was laughed at, and told that US military members get charged more because we're not in the Turkish military. So as you can see, this trip started off horribly. My flight attendant seemed like she was having a horrible day because her attitude and customer service was bad."
Pros: "The food on board was better than average."
Cons: "The whole operation was shabbily done. Because of a Turkish airlines' flight delay, we wouldn't be able to make our connecting flight to Venice from Istanbul. So the agents booked me and my traveling companions on DIFFERENT flights the next day, long after we had paid to be getting to Venice. It took a long time and a lot of work on my part to get our tickets corrected to all be on the same flight, and the whole thing was very unprofessional. The lower price for Turkish airlines is not worth it when you have to spend an entire day of your vacation sitting in the Turkish Airlines airport hotel because Turkish Airlines can't properly get you to your destination on time."
Pros: "The crew was very nice. The entertainment quite rich."
Cons: "Since the flight was very crowded, they didn't let me bring in the cabin my garment bag, I had to stuff it in the suitcase."
Pros: "Food was good. Entertainment was great."
Cons: "Flight was delayed but that wasn't the main problem. Went to the wrong gate for my connecting flight, Turkish air rep at the gate checked my boarding pass, didn't say a word about me being at the wrong gate. Tgere was no announcement of any kind (found out later, Turkish sir doesn't do announcement at the Istanbul airport. No clue as to why). Thought, tgere was another delay and by the time I asked, it was too late to catch my flight and that's when I got a full dose of every single person w Turkish air trying to stiff me with the most outrageous penalty for changing Nguyen my ticket. Started out at $1114 on a $758 ticket, then went down to $925 and if I stay over night, down to $750. Seriously? Rude, talking down at me and telling me that if I don't pay the penalty, my return ticket will be cancelled. I keep getting bounced from one person to another being told to wait here and wait there then I finally got so sick of all of it, bought a new connecting flight online, spending the night in Istanbul and will see what will happen w my return flight to the US. I call this 'theft' as if i buy an entire new ticket from Istanbul to Cairo then back to the US online, it will cost me less than the penalty they're trying to get me to pay. Shame on you Turkish airline!! You'd think w all the issues they're having w tourism in their country these days they'd care about not doing this kind of mistreatment of their clients."
Pros: "The seats not very comfortable. The staf not friendly at all."
Cons: "Too long"
Pros: "great!"
Pros: "Good chow, decent beer, and stewardesses that can walk straight down the aisle!"
Pros: "Good food and excellent service from the crew."
Pros: "From extra free bag, to all the little things they give you to make you feel much more comfortable, to the scrumptious meals and constant attendants attentiveness to passengers needs. Loved everything!!! Especially the way we can follow our route on the screens."
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Flight attendant didn't instruct the passenger infront of me that during having food he have to upright his seat"
Pros: "Flight attendant cared a lot about the older lady sitting next to me, was grateful when I helped her. Food was excellent, screen size and selection of viewing material was very good. We were on time and the little comfort bag was very good, lip balm!"
Cons: "Nothing that I didn't really like, the price was good and the service excellent."
Pros: "The people were very nice. Polite and friendly. The entertainment was good as well. I was impressed with their vegetarian food, for airplane food."
Cons: "The boarding process and the crew handing out drinks and food seemed unorganized. Not sure if they were understaffed. However, they still remained nice even though you could tell they were stressed."
Cons: "Flight from Istanbul to Amman boarding was a mess"
Pros: "Food and in flight service"
Cons: "Flight boarded late, boarding process was chaos, and we took off two hours late. This in turn made us miss our connecting flight. We had to spend the night in Istanbul, forfeiting our luxury hotel in Venice. They wouldn't let us get our bags in Istanbul so we were unable to get toiletries or change of clothes. I will be seeking reimbursement for Venice hotel, Istanbul recruited visas, and travel inconvenience."
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "Food quality degraded compared to early years. I have been seeing the very same food for couple of yours- tasteless bland food did not have the bridge, we had to use buses at Istanbul airport"
Pros: "Good tasting food"
Cons: "Slow crew with no flexibility at all. They did not respond to any "custom" request.(e.g. milch for the kids.)"
Cons: "Flight from Houston to Istanbul got delayed; Turkish Airlines representative confirmed that flight will catch up on time and I can reach my connecting flight on time, however changed my ticket for the connecting flight so I would leave Istanbul next day - without informing me about the change.Once I realized changed "date/time" in the ticket (VS what I booked) and complained about it, all Turkish Airline representatives were acting line they don't understand English...this is unacceptable. I ended up spending the night in the Airport."
Pros: "Food was ok."
Cons: "I was so cramped and I'm only 6'. My back has hurt for days after that flight."
Cons: "Airline food could always be better. It wasn’t bad though."
Pros: "Friendly, quick and efficient crew! Great food too!! My favorite part when in Houston, Texas my starting point, was that I never had to do the self check in, y’all actually had “real” people going the job!!"
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 wonderful. Food and drinks was good."
Cons: "More movies in Russian language, or with English subtitles"
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: "Everything about the flight was perfect."
Cons: "Cannot get Lufthansa to issue miles for the flight, or for my Star Alliance flights on Swiss and United. Frankfort terminal transfer distance is very far, and too far if your flight transfer is less than 55 minutes!"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
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: "Clean"
Cons: "Seats way too small and tight. Flight delayed over and over."
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!"
Pros: "Decent food."
Cons: "No onboard entertainment."
Pros: "Service was excellent. Late night flight was kept dark so we could rest - wonderful dinner menu, surprising for plane food."
Cons: "Flight was delayed so there was a bit of a chaos boarding but it has nothing to do with the service itself."
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: "Every thing"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Disaster customer service .. cancelled and mtssed flights"
Pros: "Evrything"
Cons: "Nothing that i can think of."
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Everything"
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."
Pros: "It was a good flight with Lufthanza - nice and friendly crew, comfortable plane, good food."
Pros: "I am very happy with my flights. I would recommend to friends and family. :) Thank you"
Pros: "Staff was nice. The flight was on time."
Cons: "The touchscreen tv seevice was the slowest I have ever seen. The entertainment options were very limited, even less optikns for kids. The back of my chair was not reclining. The food was terrible. Kids did not eat anything at all."
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 plane was clean, the temperature was fine during flight. They fed us dinner almost right after taking off. The staff was attentive and friendly"
Cons: "Almost was late for our flight, because it took us over 1 hour to pass the passport control at the Frankfurt airport. It was terribly organized and understaffed which caused other people to miss their flight. My husband and I ended up running to our gate like mad men and we were the last to board right before they closed the gate. Very stressful and frustrating!!! Other than that the flight was ok. We were surprised that we were served a dinner right after we took off, but the hot entree was bad, so we ended up asking the flight attendant bring us more bread so we filled up on that."
Cons: "Last minute gate change in Munich was a bit hectic, as it was a tight connection."
Pros: "Nice crew and dinner."
Cons: "Luggage didn't make the flight."
Pros: "0"
Cons: "Had to pay to check in one nag"
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!"
Cons: "The seat that I paid for was taken from me by Lufthansa without explanation or a refund."
Pros: "We requested a special meal to accommodate multiple food allergies, and they both promised and provided it."
Pros: "Everything was good , on time and without problems."
Cons: "No entertaiment"
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."
Pros: "Smoothness"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "My luggage was ripped open."
Cons: "A disaster but was able to arrive 5 hours later to my destination. Better than a day late."
Pros: "The service and flight was smooth."
Cons: "Breakfast was terrible. We only got a croissant and jam. It would have been nice to have had an actual meal."
