Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Crew was receptive"
Cons: "Food boarding"
Pros: "The crew was exceptional! Seat was comfortable and extra seat not occupied next to me giving me extra elbow room also in addition to sufficient leg room."
Cons: "I would have a few suggestions but it would rise the price of ticket significantly. We got what we paid for."
Pros: "Crew is good. Flight got delayed"
Cons: "Food is good."
Cons: "Mu luggage got broken"
Cons: "Food was just not that great. Too many peppers in everything!"
Pros: "Crew as very helpful"
Cons: "passenger seated next to are rude"
Pros: "Everything was GREAT!"
Pros: "On time. No problems"
Cons: "Be aware! "When customers purchase tickets they are paying for transportation for the specific class designated on their ticket and not for specific seat assignments. Seat assignments can never guarantee." This is what they emailed me when they did that to me on my pre-selected & confirmed seats!!"
Pros: "boarding process was efficent"
Cons: "delayed takeoff, delays on tarmac after landing/getting to gate, overly heated plane, hot food was served cold"
Pros: "Qatae Airways is second to non as always"
Pros: "The on flight entertainment is great. It’s very accommodating especially for long flights."
Cons: "Onboarding was ridiculous. They merged two gates together with no instructions to the large crowd of people boarding the plane. We were scheduled to start boarding at a certain time and we didn’t actually board until 45 minutes later. When we asked the attendants when we would begin boarding and did they have any instructions they were extremely rude, laughing with one another and taking selfies. When we we asked for the third time they brushed us off with a time frame. It was extremely disappointing."
Pros: "I flew Qatar from Doha to NYC and the meal quality and options were excellent. I also enjoyed the amount of new Hollywood movie releases and music options."
Pros: "Everything."
Pros: "Older plane Older entertainment system"
Cons: "Older plane Older entertainment system"
Pros: "Stellar crew -- super friendly, served water/juices constantly, polite, attentive. To be commended Great choice of movies and entertainment but no wifi???"
Cons: "This was an older 777 -- no wifi -- pretty surprising on such a key flight at DOH-JFK! This is not the airline's fault but I had a crazy lady next to me who was very disoriented, who could not speak English and needed assistance. No one would deal with her! She had a little pouch with her name on it -- like a UM -- so someone knew something was not right when they put her on the flight. I bought drinks inside the terminal for this 14 hour flight but they were all confiscated at the additional security at the gate!! WTF"
Cons: "carry-on did not fit on center overhead compartment unless I put it side ways (Same carry-on suitcase fit nicely on Emirates airplanes, so the carry-on overhead compartments have been made smaller on Qatar on purpose or by engineering error, and I will not fly Qatar airlines again. Less food options. I went to the Gally and they only had kitkat bars for food. Emirates offer fruit, sandwiches, and many choices at ALL TIMES of the flight for economy class passengers. Entertainment computer (Android based system) ran slow and out of memory at times. Seats were not comfortable for 12hrs flight. My butt was starting to hurt. I did not have this issues on Emirates flights."
Pros: "They do not provide hotel service even in a 11 hour layover saying the ticket is pomotional. If that is the case, why they sell tickets on promotion? Cheap mentality"
Pros: "Comfortable, on time"
Cons: "The planes weren't as comfortable as others I've been on like the double deckers of Emirates. Their economy class was NOTHING special. Everyone talks about how superior Qatar is, but I found nothing special about it...the seats, the food, the entertainment were all basic and nothing fancy. The crew, while very sweet, seemed inexperienced and green to me..but they were lovely and that's all that ultimately matters."
Pros: "Hindu meal only be vegetarian"
Cons: "All is good"
Cons: "Seats on this flight are awful, wonder why they have these seats for long haul flights, not yet all comfortable to sleep on these , I got back pain by the time I got out of the plane."
Pros: "Excellent service from the crew. Flight on time."
Cons: "Some crews are not accommodating."
Cons: "While stay in Doha the did not give any food vochcher for 21 hours what they think no body eat in 21 hours I go to counter they refused next time I will not travel"
Pros: "The food was good. The legroom was enjoyable."
Cons: "I checked two bags and had them marked 'fragile', as I had valuables in there that I packed securely. When I retrieved the bags on the carousel, the fragile sticker was mangled, and both items from both bags were broken. Pieces of art I can not replace. Also, it took over 30 minutes upon multiple requests for the attendant to acknowledge my need for assistance."
Pros: "Again, the crew were top notch"
Cons: "Comfort and available entertainment were so-so"
Cons: "They announced everything in English and Arabic and repeated the same announcement multiple times. The entertainment is good but frustrating that it is constantly interrupted with announcement about everything. I have never heard that many on any other plane. The announcement about customs paperwork was long and done 2 times in English and 2 times in Arabic. There safety video is soooo long and again is done in two languages. It was just all too much. Besides that everything was great."
Cons: "I will never ever fly Qatar airlines again. The boarding for this flight in Doha was horrendous. I and a random group of passengers were made to wait with no explanation AFTER our electronics were already cleared to go through yet another security check. They said we were selected for screening but all the other people they took before us were screened the exact same way. It was stressful and traumatizing to stand for 45 minutes with no clear explanation. The crew were clearly new at their job or ill trained. On top of that they consistently ran out of food they were serving and was forced to take the vegetarian option when it's not what I wanted. I could not wait to leave Doha and exit Qatar airways. I hated my experience traveling with Qatar. It was stressful and traumatic. I want a full refund. I will also be advising all my friends to never fly Qatar. It was the WORST!"
Pros: "The was very hospitalty"
Cons: "Every thing was amazing"
Pros: "Plane was perfect"
Cons: "Transit was just tedious very long line , had to wait for along time. The crew have very strong accent which makes difficult to understand them, but they are very nice and helpful"
Pros: "Great airline...nice staff, very attentive and polite."
Pros: "Considering how long it was, not much could have been better. It wasn't too crowded, so the seat next to me was free, which made getting some sleep easier."
Pros: "Very spacious, good food & service"
Cons: "Check in to the boarding lounge was a bit chaotic and there were a lot of angry customers yelling at airline staff. The process needs to be improved."
Pros: "The crew, they were very pleasant and good about taking care of our needs."
Cons: "The middle console video went out on my husband at the end of the flight, while he was watching a movie. This also happened on the earlier flight from Singapore to Doha."
Pros: "everything!"
Cons: "is it true that Qatar treats the passengers coming to US differently than the passengers going out of US. I noticed that the crew was giving menu cards for dinner when coming back to US. Food quality is very ad, quantity is small also. same story with snacks. they don't offer enough food overall. The crew should be trained better for int'l passengers."
Pros: "The Steward on this flight was excellent. Very attentive and pleasant. He asked at the end of my flight how was everything. Food was good ."
Cons: "This flight was better than the flight going out to Doha , then to Abu Dhabi. You guys were late landing,and as a result I almost missed my connecting flight, was rushed thru the airport like a lunatic by one of your Reps. Then was told my luggage may not be in Abu Dhabi when I arrive, which it was not. My paid for seat wasn't available and had to sit in the back. Had to fill out a lost luggage report in Abu Dhabi. Was promised my luggage by 4:30 pm . Didn't receive it until 2:30 am next day. Missed my whole first day of vacation as I had no clothes , toiletries, etc . Very angry, and feel I should get a substantial discount on my next flight in March to Dubai. Totally unacceptable !!!!!!!"
Cons: "They supposed to provide Wheel chair for my elderly mother in Law who had a foot fracture, was very hard /painful to walk. I confirmed the wheelchair option well advance before her travel date in Qatar Airways Web site. I got the confirmation also in the Qatar Airways Web site. I usually fly with my family as I have a big family with couple of children and elderly. I will never fly Qatar again, this was the 1st and the last fly with Qatar airways."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The first flight of my journey was delayed which made me late for my next two connecting flights. I arrived on vacation a day late. Paid for a hotel and activities that I never used. My bag arrived 5 days late. I had to buy clothes on a daily basis which ate up more time and fun money. The airline gave me nothing except empty promises and dismissive apologies."
Cons: "No entertainment service from Doha to New York"
Cons: "N/A"
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."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Time of flight"
Pros: "Every thing likely"
Cons: "Non"
Cons: "I am hard of hearing. It would be appreciated it you would offer more movies with English subtitles."

Food was very bad.

Tjue legt me strandes on Iraq and the Manager would not speak to me and tell me if I was rebooked or what, I had my PCR test, was four hours early and complied with everything they asked. I am sickened how they treated customers, I needed to spend $2300 to get back to the US.

once again everything from the boarding process to in-flight service was impeccable.

Pros: "Inflight entertainment was superb, catering in main cabin was also excellent. The crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "Main cabin seats were definitely better than other airlines, but still not the most comfortable for 8+ hours."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "No need for improvement"
Cons: "Kids food. Chairs weren't comfortable until I reclined it back. Felt like I was bending forward when in the upright position."
Cons: "Food could be tastier. But, you can’t starve"
Cons: "Vegan food was served with BUTTER how can this be vegan? NEED MORE Healthy options instead of Pan cakes etc made of Enriched Flour... Upgrades have become.alsmost nil. Emirates is making a huge profit but is not sharing with its passengers... had to wait one whole hour to get our baggage"
Cons: "It was good service by emirates"
Cons: "Requested an aisle seat at the front or an emergency seat and got neither. I could hardly move my long legs. That the flight was long did not help matters. I was sandwiched between two other travelers on a three-seater arrangement. Again, is it just on flights to Kenya or other African countries that passengers DO NOT receive the travel pouch?"
Cons: "The plane is great but the young gentlemen next to me is 300lb+(my best guest He's at least 6'2" possibly in his teen or early 20s) Don't get me wrong but to sit in coach for 14 hours with him in the middle seat is kind of a nightmare. Half of the way we all went to a bathroom and I don't blame him but the bathroom must be to small to clean up himself for I have to sit with feces smell for the rest of the flight. Imagine that. This is my second leg of this long flight from BKK to NYC. The first leg to dubai is horrible enough but this one top that by far!!!!"
Cons: "Food was bland, repetitive (poor choice and variety) Crew was unwelcoming. Had to ask multiple times for water, soda and also take away plates I have travelled emirates before so this flight was bad compared to previous experiences"
Pros: "I was able to uograde"
Cons: "They used a lot more miles to upgrade than I thought they would Emirates keeps saying the ticket I bought through Kayal was a super saver- well I did not find the time combo I needed to travel and the prices I found on the Emirates website and Kayak were similar to within 50$"
Cons: "I am a 76 yr old traveller, did not get the change in flight schedule until I booked my flight. I was at Dubai airport for over 12 hours waited for the 3AM flight that took another 14 hours. Very stressful and tiring. There was not even a proper accommodation for this very long wait between flights. This experience will be told to all my friends and trust me it will be a very bad, negative endorsement."
Cons: "Very noisy for passengers sitting by crew area. Crew seats were used very frequently and every time it opened and closed it slammed waking up passengers."
Pros: "Loved the service. My flight was from NYC to Milan."
Cons: "There was not one thing."
Pros: "On time, entertainment good crew"
Cons: "Food was bland"
Pros: "Thanks to the nice lady who gave up an Aisle seat so I could sit next to my daughter."
Cons: "Other people's kids are wiggly and annoying, and there were many! Not a seat empty in the huge plane. PThe staff did as best they could under the circumstances. But 17 hours of crowds are hard to take. Very rough landing, which I wouldn't mention except that I've had several on Emirates lately."
Cons: "Emirates should have contacted me about my missing bag which they didn't contact me yet. Not sure where my bag is as of now"
Pros: "Choice of movies was good"
Cons: "Changed flights in Dubai but there were not enough or easy directions. Could not hear boarding announcements due to announcement issues. Crew who served were rude and not useful most time, except couple of crew members. Ear phone not working, took a while after asking to get new one. Food was cold and poor - did not have second bite on most food. Crew serving was as if they were in training (must be) Cramped seat, which did not recline much, which was unusual for Emirates. Glad to be out of that plane."
Pros: "Food was the best I ever had on Economy, seats were comfortable, enterteriment was very good, cabin crew very polite and attentious..."
Cons: "Boarding was too Long with to much security measures"
Pros: "customer service of crew was good."
Cons: "there were many who were selected for extra screening (code SSS) this process added a great amount of confusion (without any communication) we were screened and put in an isolation area where we were not allowed to leave or use a bathroom. We were there for over one hour. at one point, we were moving into a long tube like structure where we stayed for at least 30 minutes while others were boarding from an different ramp. the communication was non existent and we were made to feel like prisoners. actually, we were prisoners."
Pros: "For starters, the seats were decently comfortable. They were wide, and offered generous legroom. The food was good: an unbelievable improvement from the previous flight (I recommend the chicken). The ICE system was impeccable. It had a wide selection of movies, TV shows, and games as well as access to the news. However, the flight's greatest perk my have been the compassionate crew. They were very helpful and friendly. They offered many accommodations, like a pizza and photo, all for free. Overall, the flight went very well."
Cons: "Although I enjoyed the flight, the only bad part was the boarding process. To start off, the departure in Milan was delayed for about 45 minutes. Also, when boarding finally began, the line was extremely long and moved very slowly. That was the only event that marred the flight to JFK."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Staff and the choice of movies in the entertainment system."
Cons: "The food could be better. Should provide choice of fruits, salad, yogurt etc. The economy class seats should be made more comfortable for long flights. The seats are ok if it is a 4 or 5 hour flight."
Pros: "Leg space on time"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Front legs little short"
Pros: "Efficient, clean, friendly"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "The in flight entertainment and food was enjoyable. Overall service of the crew was excellent."
Cons: "I flew from Singapore to New York with a 1 hour 15 minute layover in Dubai. Passengers with layovers were instructed to be at the next gate 45 minutes in advance of boarding. This was seemingly impossible and cause myself and many other passengers severe anxiety running through the airport. The first flight landed 10 minutes late in Gate C, took another 10-15 minutes to off board, at which point we were held by a flight attendant who later guided us to get on a bus to take us between terminal A and C. The entire trip between gates was approximately 30 minutes and we inexplicably had to pass through security 3 times during the layover. It seemed poorly organized and myself and other passengers just made the second flight before the doors closed."
Pros: "I would like to say this is the most horrific experience I have ever had traveling and using Kayak. I was late by 10 mins getting to the ticket counter and Emirates gave my seat away. I then proceeded to attempt to rebook and the Emirates agent advised they are sold out for the next 3 days and have no flight alternatives to offer. I contact flight network and the person I spoke proceeds to tell me the same thing and there is nothing they can do for me. Basically that I would need to purchase a whole new ticket on another airline as Emirates doesn't have availability. Which I did. Now I'm looking online and Flight Network has my exact flight on Emirates available at same price I paid for my ticket. But now my new ticket purchased to get home is non-refundable. I'm out over 1000 dollars because of bad info. This has been a horrific experience and after being loyal to Kayak for years.... I will never use the site again."
Pros: "Better plane with much better entertainment system. Decent food. Once I had missed my connecting flight because of the flight delay, they promptly arranged for a hotel to stay at, as there wasnt another flight to NYC for 12 hrs. Otherwise I would have been really pissed."
Cons: "First time I have had mediocre crew on an emirates flight. The guy serving my section was not particularly friendly, had a bit of an attitude problem and spent a little too much time chatting up an attractive female passenger. Again, disorganized boarding process. First time I have experienced such terrible service on emirates."
Pros: "Very good airline with professional stafff and much better comfort than most other airlines"
Cons: "The food was pretty bad. I didn't even eat on the return flight."
Pros: "I liked the customer service, entertainment, flight Attendants, food and everything that Emirates has to offer! I felt like I was in first class while in coach!!!"
Cons: "The duration of the flight was extremely long and that made me uncomfortable and it was hard to sleep."
Pros: "Nice flight"
Cons: "time delay at Dubai Airport"
Pros: "The attendants were great at keeping the cabin clean and were very goo with the kids. Loads of activities and unexpected surprises that really pleased my kids."
Cons: "More regular offerings of drinks."
Pros: "See above. Great airline all around. We travel a lot and overall it is one of the two best in the world on almost all counts."
Cons: "For large number of passengers, boarding is impossibly slow. I don't understand why, after boarding the priority passengers, airline don't board the rest of us from the back of the plane to the front. Doing it the other way makes us stumble across the front seated passengers who are busy stowing their carry-ones. This causes a bottleneck in boarding. Also, there are too many checks on us, which also slows things down. Also, Emirates advertises: one carry-on item of less than 15 pounds. On this flight I would say that at least 75% of the passengers violated this with large and multiple carry-ons. This is unfair to those of us who try to go by the rules."
Pros: "The movie selection is always good."
Cons: "The crew on this flight were rude which came as a shock to myself as I usually have a great experience flying with Emirates. I wish that was the case this time."
Pros: "Emirates has a great reputation, and now I've experienced first hand why that is! Great (complimentary!) food and beverages, clean comfortable seats, generous luggage policies, and impressive customer service. The crew on our flight represented 19 different countries and spoke a total of 19 different different languages. The woman ahead of me was very unpleasant about her screen not working, and every attendant she spoke to was infinitely polite and pleasant. They tried to reset her screen, and eventually found an empty seat and moved her to first class!"
Cons: "Only that I can't take an Emirates airbus for all of my flights! I was detained for awhile during boarding because I was chosen to have my carry-on bag checked, and it took awhile because I had filled a water bottle after passing through security and it took some discussion before being approved (my husband didn't know where I was and had already boarded and was worried)."
Pros: "Food and staff service"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Outstanding, professional, courteous, and highly capable staff; beautiful plane; extremely tasty food; generous beverage offerings; smooth flight, including take-off and landing. Kudos to the entire crew and to the Emirates Airline organization."
Cons: "The seats were very comfortable, but the leg room was inadequate."
Pros: "The food was good."
Cons: "The bathrooms were dirty and some of the staff were unprofessional. they dropped food boxes and trays on passengers including me."
Pros: "I was siting by an exit door, and it was plenty of room for my long legs."
Cons: "Nothing not to like."
Pros: "Emirates defines economy class .. No one else comes close"
Pros: "Friendly staff and variety of entertainment"
Cons: "Everything was good."
Pros: "Everything from check in to arrival"
Cons: "Food , if you serve Indian food it should comes with chapati and not bread bun."
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Huge variety of inflight entertainment, food was good, unlimited free drinks, comfortable seats"
Pros: "The seats are roomy in economy and the food and drink service is very nice. The entertainment offered is extensive."
Cons: "I was in 70G and there was a very difficult family next to me. It was not the crew's fault but it made the trip very uncomfortable for me..."
Pros: "Our company has used emirates in the past ( business class) ..this flight was a last minute decision so was booked in economy. We had seats in row 52 BC - a bulkhead outside the mid galley ....it was an incredible experience to watch the crew start eating from containers, peeling apples and making salads from a plastic bag before the passengers were served. The flight attendants when not eating were taking selfies ...so much for the "emirates experience. The curtain was drawn once for about 15 minutes between our seats and tghe galley area. I was so amazed at the lack of professionalism and the amount of food consumed by the attendants I took photos of the constantly stuffing food in their moths and then trying to speak to passengers."
Cons: "See above comments."
Pros: "Food was very good."
Cons: "A little more leg space (in economy) would be great."

Everything perfect

Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nope"
Cons: "Packed plane. No social distancing!"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Boarding process. Waiting gate was small for the plane we were using"
Pros: "TK escorted us from the delayed flight from Dubai through security to ensure we made the connection"
Cons: "The temperature on the flight was a bit too cold. I don't like the airlines that trade out the nice headsets for earbuds at the end of a flight. Change the process so we don't have to swap"
Pros: "--"
Cons: "The seats are so narrow that I can't sit properly. I'm a normal sized person. and even the shorter person next to me was extremely stuck in their seat. This is unhealthy and awfully uncomfortable on an 11 hour flight."
Pros: "Not much. The plane didn’t fall apart? I wasn’t poisoned?"
Cons: "The seats barely recline, the food is heated garbage, the movie options are few and stale, the flying and landing were amateur-level and vomit-inducing, and the service is curt at best."
Pros: "Too many security checkpoints were annoying, but they were good when you follow the rules of what to carry and what not to carry. I also liked that this much security doesn’t allow easy access to the US."
Cons: "The airplane food was terrible. Extremely disappointed. It’s sad to see high quality ingredients be used in such terrible tasting meals."
Pros: "All."
Cons: "Food may become better. Not twice meat, especially not late at night. Give an option for an omelet for example"
Pros: "Again, food and service in business class were superb. A newer 777 and more comfortable lie-flat seats"
Cons: "Business class gets only one small lavatory."
Pros: "Smooth flight. Comfortable chairs for economy. Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "Great food, live tv (watched 2 World Cup games), great service."
Cons: "Leg room in economy was a bit tight. I got a full cup of tea spilled on me by the air hostess by accident but they offered to change my seat. It was bumpy at the moment so I understood plus they were very polite and dealt with it professionally."
Pros: "Thr A330 has 32" pitch which was ok. The 2-4-2 seating made this less of an issue. Food was ok. Screens are decent and responsive."
Cons: "It's 32" for a 10 hour flight. Not really comfortable and enjoyable, and a squeeze throughout."
Pros: "Great entertainment system (though nothing new since my last flight 2 weeks ago)."
Cons: "As all airplanes, seats are somewhat cramped, and the food, while good enough, is pretty much the same it is on every Turkish Airlines flight. Some more variety might be nice."
Pros: "This flight was not available"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and I still didnt receive my refund."
Pros: "I like your entertainment system, but the cushions on the headset were not the best."
Cons: "The boarding was not organized. I was in Group C. We were chained behind a rope. Boarding started and when the agent nearest to us didn't get a passenger quickly he started to take Group D! I did not appreciate that. This continued throughout boarding. Also, as to be expected!, as newer people joined the the lines they went to the line moving - not their Group line. So we stood behind the rope on C while everyone else was boarding. I finally jumped to the moving line. I was tired of waiting. The kosher meals were warm, but not hot. There is no reason for this. I have been flying International for over 20 years and I know what is possible. The seats - for a 10 hour flight - were uncomfortable. Either I need more padding on my rear end or you need better seats."
Pros: "Clean plane; timely; good food"
Cons: "Not a lot of leg room. Out of all the international flights I’ve been on, it has the least leg room."
Cons: "We were traveling with our 1 year old. On any other flight, we've been given seats with extra legroom and a bassinet when available. Turkish airlines put us crammed in a window and middle seat for a 9 hour flight. It was absolutely un-doable. Everyone around us realized this and tried to help as we asked the flight attendant to help us and she said that I should ask other people to move around not her. We had to go around the plane begging people who were sitting with a bassinet and no baby to trade seats with us. It was an absolutely horrible experience. It was the airline's mistake, and we were the ones forced to try to fix it. Yes, we got a bassinet eventually, but not before we saw how mean and selfish other passengers could be pretending not to hear us and ignoring us. And no help from the crew."
Pros: "During 20 hours journey they have served rice for only one time and a little. The food quality and salad was also stale."
Cons: "Their food, quality and characteristics of food."
Pros: "I am not blaming the airline at all for these inconveniences."
Cons: "NOTE: THIS IS NOT A CRITIC OF THE AIRLINE Having personally experienced the latest in the consequences of travel related rules mandated by US public officials, I am yet again left wondering if they, and their families, go through these rules that they impose on the general public. Or if they just breeze into their private airport wings and planes. I doubt they take off shoes, belts, and such, or go through irradiated machines. But going through about 3 extra layers of security while transiting is a bit much. Not to mention the extra hours spent relinquishing and reclaiming laptops etc. Frankly, non of these acts makes anything safer. It is akin to the permanently parked police vehicle on the Brooklyn Bridge in NYC since 9-11. What is that supposed to deter?"
Pros: "The care taken to wrap the electronic equipment you were mandated to confiscate. That part was handled well"
Cons: "Retrieving the electronic equipment was a chaotic nightmare. There was no order. There were two lines where passenger did line up in than others cut the line claiming they had connecting flights. Those in charge never verified whether they were connecting to another flight. Never asked for their boarding pass. I heard some laughing saying they did no have connecting flights. I better job and method of handling this situation is needed as long as the ban is in effect. Otherwise, Turkish airlines is fine. My wife and I have traveled most airlines and travel extensively. So, we are aware of good service and bad. Your service minus the electronic equipment is good."
Pros: "It was nice"
Cons: "Food was not that nice"
Pros: "The cabin crew was outstanding, food good. A good choice for drinks and very nice selection of entertainment."
Cons: "I couldn't get the on board wi fi to work for some reason."
Cons: "I had a problem and I was not able to fly. I bought insurance and I tried to contact them, but they denied my request and I would definitely recommend to remove this option because it doesn't give a good image of KAYAK. If I want to trust this application, I have to be confident to use the services and I service from the insurance was fake. I tried to reach the airline to cancel my ticket and they said it's not refundable. Therefore, I would definitely recommend showing refund options when selling tickets. I lost every penny I spent because I was not able to fly. I am sure that my message is delivered now!!!!"
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "Absolute chaotic experience. Seized all electronic equipment which I anticipated ahead of time and left my iPad home - but they took my camera - which is NOT on the list or a digital device. They had ONE person handling what had to be well over a thousand iPads and laptops. Flight left hours late. NO legroom, Food was horrible and inedible. The entertainment system draped out and locked up 4 hours into a ten hour flight. The WORST flight experience I have had in a very long tie and I have flown all over the world. Will NEVER fly Turkish Air again. STAY AWAY from this airline."
Cons: "Airline should advise during check in- especially on line check in there are no electronics on board. This caused significant delay and annoyance for about 100+ passengers"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "No kosher as ordered"
Cons: "This time the food was a disappointment. I had ordered a vegan meal and the hot course was dried up pasta, no protein."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Service is very bad"
Pros: "Checking in personal Irem such a rude person who lies to clients. She lied me about checking bag and choosing sit also. I asked her to talk to her supervisor and she show me the girl sitting next to her was doing checking in also name is Bahar. I am 6'1" and 190 lbs and asked for exit row and they both told me all of them gone already. The thing is funny when I asked checking in was just began. After boarding I realized some exit sits are available. As a Turkish man who worked JFK for.Turkish airlines, I think this was awful experience. Turkish airlines and passengers deserve better service and honest employees"
Pros: "I love how Turkish Airlines is such a pleasant flying experience and how everything is included in the price. Delicious meals that are better than going to a restaurant, the head rests that bend in so you can sleep with or without a neck pillow (I had absent-mindedly packed my pillow in my baggage and was delighted to discover these), the little pouch of goodies (socks, slippers, toothbrush and toothpaste, eyemask, lip balm, ear plugs), and the pleasantness of the crew are all highlights for me. And I was delighted by the magical flight safety video! Thank you also for passing out little sweets on New Year's - that was such a lovely touch and appreciated. Everyone who has flown Turkish agrees it's the best!"
Pros: "Everything worked well. Service, food, entertainment, et all."
Cons: "nothing was amiss."
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "my chair was not inclining . After several requests to take a look at it or even move me to another seat, it was never addressed."
Pros: "Best air entertainment I have ever experienced."
Cons: "Boarding was very long. My flight got canceled and rescheduled. On my first flight I had made a reservation for an isle sit, and when my flight got reschedules no reservation was made and I ended up getting a middle sit, which is very uncomfortable for me."
Pros: "My JFK to IST flight on Oct 21st, the plane was nice and new. The seats were comfortable and the entertainment was up to date. The food on this particular flight was good."
Cons: "According to the Turkish Airlines site they offer free accommodations to passengers who have over 10 hr layover in Istanbul if you are an economy passenger. I was under this impression that I would fall under this category because when I initially booked the ticket (JFK - IST - LIS and return LIS - IST - JFK) my layover back to JFK was 18 hours. Two weeks prior to leaving for my trip I received a notification saying that the layover will be extended to 34 hours. Seeing that my layover was extended, I thought that Turkish Airline would offer me accommodation for both nights. When I arrived to IST (10:30pm local time) I went to the Turkish Airline transfer desk in which they said they would not allow me to have the 2 nights accommodation. After about an hour and half of discussion they could only offer me one night accommodation and changed my flight to an earlier flight. The attendant who was serving me told me to wait by the kiosk until my name was called. At the 30 minute mark I tried to ask another kiosk attendant to see what the status was and he replied back in a very rude manner saying he has no idea what I'm referring to and that essentially was not his problem. After another hour and half of waiting and seeing other frustrated passengers going to the transfer desk and not being helped, I went on the queue to see what the status of my ticket was. They finally gave me my ticket and at this point it was close to 1am. Thankfully I did research before hand and under the assumption that I was going to spend a day in Istanbul, spent $20 and got a Turkish visa prior to my travel, which according the the turkish consulate website that you can no longer get a visa while in the airport. I finally reached the airport hotel at 2:30am but the airport shuttle was to arrive in 4 hours to shuttle all the passengers back. So not only did I deal with a rude staff, but I paid $20 to be in Turkey for about 4 hours in an airport hotel."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Check in late, rude staff, bad food"
Pros: "The inflight service was wonderful. Business class comfort is excellent with full lie flat seats, Crew was attentive. My special vegetarian food was very good using the usual airline fare I receive."
Cons: "The arrival into Istanbul was marked by a major inconvenience unnecessary anxiety, extra expense and frustration. On deplaning from a flight from Barcelona, a Turkish Airlines employee was checking boarding cards the connectivity flight and directed people to the appropriate exits for domestic and international connection. We had a connection to JFK and tried to enter the exit for international connections. She insisted that we go to the domestic exit despite my telling her we had an international connection. This led to passport control which had never occurred to me anywhere in the world when making an international connection. Next problem - I was told I needed a visa! My travel partner did not need a visa and was already through passport immigration control. The officer did not speak English and pointed in the direction I needed to go to get a via. I told him I did not want or need a visa but that was it! I started to look for the visa application area and there was no staff or anyone to help. Finally I found 4 kiosks for e-visas - only one worked. 20 plus dollars later I had the visa and immigrated. We quickly reverse the process and went though security and passport control to get back inside the international terminal. It was nuts! The boarding in Istanbul was crowded and chaotic."
Pros: "Food and entertainment were good. Crew was pleasant and attentive. Flying in business class with them is always nice. There was a lof of leg room and nice seats that go almost fully reclining."
Cons: "Where to start from? Got off the plane from the flight from Barcelona to Istanbul, to connect to New York and first thing this woman insists that me and my friend should go to exit and baggage claim instead of international transfers. My friend had to get a visa at check out and all the trouble of trying to get back into the gate simply because of a STUPID AIRPORT STAFF who doesn't know what they are doing. I have had trouble before with airport staff who doesn't know what they are doing or give wrong directions. That is why will avoid flying with them to Europe."
Pros: "Although there was only one option for meals, they were good nevertheless. The entertainment on Turkish Airlines is the best I've ever seen on any international airline. There are so many options and the layout is new and modern."
Cons: "Compared to my flight from New York to Istanbul, my flight from Istanbul to New York was less wonderful. The crew was not as attentive and was not helpful in assisting the grandmother who was sitting next to me with her 2-year-old grandson who wanted to know if another seat was available. There was only once choice for the meals, which I found odd on a long international flight, but I did enjoy the meals. The plane was older than the one I took from New York and were less comfortable. I don't usually have a problem with legroom (I'm pretty average height at 5'5"), but the legroom on this flight was noticeably smaller."
Pros: "My mother's luggage was lost and arrived to us ripped the next day and i emailed them yet no compensation has been made and no one has replied to the email."
Pros: "The cabin crew were super friendly, attentive, and accommodating on our flight. Upon boarding the flight, pillows, blankets, and earbuds were awaiting us on our seats. During the flight, the crew handed out Turkish delights, lemon-scented hot towels, and sleep-care bag full of goodies (like ear plugs, slippers, etc.). The entertainment system had quite a selection of music, TV shows, movies, and games! Though it's always uncomfortable sitting on a plane for an international flight, I felt our Economy seats had a little more legroom than most, and there was definitely a lot of stuff to do on the plane if you didn't want to sleep."
Cons: "The second meal I had, eggplant pasta, tasted terrible along with the beans. The only redeeming factor was the yogurt! In addition, the A/C was surprisingly on low, and for the first time, I became hot on the flight - not that I really minded. It was just a different experience. We also took off an hour after we boarded, which I thought was strange."
Cons: "We missed our flight from Istanbul to New York. The gate was changed while we were waiting at the assigned gate. No announcements were made about the gate change. We ended up stranded in Istanbul. The Turkish Airlines representatives were very rude and not helpful at all. They told me that we needed to purchase new tickets. My 14 year old and I were in Istanbul, Turkey with no way home. After hours on the phone with their customer service and many repeated phone calls and many collect phone calls to the United States, my mother was finally able to secure new plane tickets for $2000 one way for us to return to the states. We were in the airport for 24 hours before we could board a flight to make our way home. A few days after we arrived back is when the terrorist attacks occurred. I have been plagued with flashbacks of our time in the Istanbul airport. I feel that Turkish Airlines could have done a better job at trying to accommodate us in a time of desperation. I have been reluctant to contact them upon my return and a friend offered to call on my behalf and was treated in the same disrespectful manner. I would hate to think that Turkish Airlines could be representative of the people of Turkey. I can't imagine that Turkey or the citizens of this beautiful country could treat visitors in such a fashion. I appreciate your time in reading about our personal and devastating experiences during our trip that was to have been the trip of a lifetime with my son."
Pros: "Wide variety of movies."
Cons: "Firstly, our daughter's personal TV monitor stopped working about an hour into the flight. We asked for the TV monitor to be fixed on three different occasions and nothing was done about it so we had to share our monitor for the remainder of the 10 hour flight. Secondly, we were the last to be served even we though we were seated in the middle of the plane. When they finally got to us they didn't have anymore of the selection that we wanted so we had to settle for what was left. When we finally got our food it was ice cold! We had to ask for another plate. By this point we were starving and very upset. Overall, our experience wasn't the most ideal."
Cons: "My luggage did not make it to my destination with me. I waited an hour by the luggage carousel until I saw someone that informed me that one of my suitcases did not make it onto the flight. I had to wait until the next day for it to be delivered. While I am glad it was delivered to my residence, I am frustrated for the inconvenience."
Pros: "Good in general"
Cons: "Delayed flights"
Pros: "Organized boarding relatively on time take-off. Clean lavatories."
Cons: "The seating arrangements were awrful. The flight was not full passengers flying solo, like myself, could have benefitted from better seating arrangements. for example some passengers had an entire row of seats to themselves while people like me were stuck next to a window seat with a talkative passenger for 11 hours"
Cons: "We were told to go to the gate. However, there was no room for us there, another flight to San Francisco was leaving earlier and given precedence. So it was crowded, chaotic and we had to stand around unnecessarily, when we could have been drinking coffee or sitting comfortably elsewhere in the airport. On the flight they ran out of one of the meal choices and we just had to take or leave what they still had."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment was great"
Cons: "Boarding process was delayed and there were no updates to tell us about it. I was feeling ill and asked a crew member for water she told me she would run and get it and I saw her walking around for 45 minutes before I asked her again and it took her another 30 minutes. In that time I watched her fulfill requests for headphones and other unecessary items. We were sat directly behind a screaming baby and directly in front of 3 wildly misbehaving children for the entire 10 hr flight. The crew allowed the family behind us to sit 5 people to the 4-person row, including a 7-year old sitting on the mom's lap who kicked seats and pulled my hair over the top of the seat. I recognize that misbehaved children are not the fault of the airline but it seems like in the future grouping families with children together might be a resolution. We went 10 hours without sleep because the kids kept kicking our seats and sticking their feet through our armrests. The airline also offered zero vegetarian food options for this flight (unlike others which offered pasta). We went 10 hrs having eaten a single bread roll and a bowl of pudding. After these two flights I'll likely never fly Turkish again."
Pros: "The food/drinks"
Cons: "Delay"
Pros: "It was cancelled and scheduled next day"
Pros: "More spacious seating. Crew was happy, nice and seemed to care. Good entertainment choices."
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Lufthansa service from JFK-FRA-FCO-FRA-JFK was gracious, efficient and altogether pleasurable."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Bought the premium economy on Lufthansa, but ended up on Eurowings. Food same as Economy, 1/2 the entertainment choices. Definitely not worth the money."
Cons: "See above. What a disaster!"
Pros: "Still use silverware and provide blankets, pillows, headphones, nice clean plane"
Cons: "The tv monitor had very limited options and froze about every 5 minutes. The screen was either very unresponsive or would freeze"
Pros: "The Germans are known for their efficiency and Lufthansa followed through with that. From the check-in process to cabin service, all was top notch. As I was sitting near the front of economy, any "extra" economy plus meals were handed out as to avoid waste. I was the recipient of a delicious Caprese salad. A nice treat."
Pros: "Flight was on time, did not have anyone next to me"
Cons: "Items were taken from my suitcase, did not get a meal of my choice"
Pros: "Easily the most comfortable I've ever been in TATL economy. Lufthansa's 747-8 is set up strangely: the main deck is arranged First - Business - Economy - Prem. Economy - Economy. This means that if you can book a seat in the forward economy mini-cabin, you get dedicated cabin crew, no other passengers walking through your space to get to the bathroom, plenty of bin space, and – best of all – a lot of aisle space to stretch your legs. Row 16 aisle seats are especially good, as the bulkhead between J and Y doesn't extend all the way, and therefore you can stretch your feet out. Food was actually excellent (for economy), hot and flavorful and generous, with snacks available mid-flight. Beverages also tops – gotta love Lufthansa for offering Campari (!) and more than one wine choice."
Cons: "Entertainment (music and movies at least) was up-to-date but not very interested. Boarding and transit security in Frankfurt was anxiety-inducing – between getting to the US departures area and additional screening, it took more than an hour from deplaning to getting in line. Boarding w/o group numbers was an exercise in patience. And the terminal wifi is so spotty!"
Pros: "The fact that the Crew was kind n helpful and we landed safely and on time. Like the security was great. Overall it was good!"
Cons: "The boarding Crew treated the passengers unfairly...your staff should learn how to board a plain...by starting: women with children n handicapped people first, the business/first class, the economy passengers...that's how you do it...there was no organization to board the plane and the ticket agent was wrong on the advertisements instructions. Get rid of cheap wine, our tickets are very expensive..you can afford good wine. I got a headache with your cheap wine... Your also not allowed to do early check in...with your system."
Pros: "Multiple bathrooms located downstairs. Modern new plane"
Cons: "Movies were old. No real new releases. Food was terrible"
Pros: "Complementary Drinks. Beautiful Flight Attendants."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Lufthansa pilots are some of the best in the industry and the flight was extremely smooth from take off to landing. There were bouts of turbulence but the pilot immediately changed altitudes to steer away from it. Flying on the 748 is a pleasure and it's a shame these great planes will eventually all be phased out in favor of more fuel efficient 787s and their Airbus counterparts."
Cons: "Having to pay 86€ for a second suitcase that weighed just 15kg. In JFK they didn't charge me but Germans always go by the book. I think for the price of the ticket and lower gasoline costs compared to the height of the recession this is simply outrageous. Next time I'll pay for economy plus. You get a seat that is wider than economy but a little bit less legroom than a business one and the second baggage is included. The meal was nothing special but the friendliness of the flight attendants made up for it."
Cons: "Tv didn't work most of time. Food was terrible."
Cons: "Worst crew, at one point when they start serving lunch they left like 10 people waiting and waiting to be served also, they start to put together some lunch one by one, took maybe another 1/2 hour for some people to get food, i was the last one to get served but when they got some leftovers from some other people they put that on my tray for me, they run out of food in the plane, of course i refused the lunch but no other option for me was given, again WORST crew ever, never flight Lufthansa again, NEVER"
Pros: "wasn't Lufthansa it was actually Singapore airlines they changed my flight and it was very good"
Cons: "It was very good"
Pros: "The food was terrific. The in flight entertainment system was one of the best I've experienced."
Cons: "The online check-in using my wife's iPad's browser in a don't have a printer scenario (which is the case when you're not home), was difficult to navigate. My wife wound up with my boarding pass on her phone and not one for herself. We did get our boarding passes at the kiosk, but then mine had my TSA-precheck but my wife's didn't and she had to go through an extra layer of security (near the gate area) because of this at the Munich airport."
Pros: "The attendants were very respectful and courteous, most of them"
Cons: "Boarding is disorganized, flight was delayed, baggage took over an hour to get."
Pros: "I was able to squeeze back into Comfort Economy and make my destination, after a messed up miles upgrade - have to be grateful for the small things, right?"
Cons: "I was actually upgraded to Business Class through a LH miles award, however, that upgrade was not honored, despite the fact that I had a confirmation email from them. I had to first get to Frankfurt to even negotiate this problem. At the departure point, LH was unable to furnish me a boarding pass to my NY flight. After racing though the huge airport at max speed to make this connection, I was treated rudely at the gate in Frankfurt by LH short tempered ground staff, to the point of even being accused of being the source of the problem and being late for boarding (when I was only accorded an hour connection through this booking, and raised this concern with LH prior). Lastly, the ground crew took away my connecting flight boarding pass and nearly forgot to give me back my luggage tag. The flight crew was Ok, but just did a bare minimum to keep up with the packed and overbooked flight. To top of the joy, I got food poisoning after landing in NYC - not all food they serve was in sealed containers, and it must have been enough to cause a day of misery that followed my arrival - I can assure you that the late time and taxing and docking delays in NYC took away any opportunity to have a normal dinner, and LH food was all I had all day... Not the usual LH experience, but I may give them a break for the next few trips."
Pros: "Professional, friendly, helpful staff in a new, quiet plane (A380-800). Smooth landing. Easy disembarkment despite approximately 500 passengers from a large aircraft."
Cons: "Unreliable domestic Lufthansa flights (in Germany) connected to this international one, and the departure time history for this LH400 proved typical for this flight, which ultimately left nearly 2 hours late despite good local weather. An announcement cited technical difficulties with the originally scheduled plane. Several small groups we recognized from embarkation on this LH400 flight filed lost luggage claims, as we did. Uncharacteristically bad planning by LH on food choices left our rows near the front of Economy without a choice of meals: only pasta, tasty though it was, was available. The chicken option was gone. The flight status video program function did not work for anybody near us despite three equipment restarts by the crew."
Cons: "We missed this flight because previous flight from Germany was late. After running like mad people thru the Frankfurt airport- we only found out they have left - many people missed the flight!"
Pros: "Dissatisfied!!!"
Cons: "See comments above."
Pros: "Friendly staff, good food, free wine, comfy (as can be expected) seats AND AMAZING LANDING into Munich. OH! Good movie selection too!"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "LOVE the premium economy class - i have long legs & was traveling with two kids - we were all very comfortable!!!"
Cons: "would like to see a movie category called : academy award winners"
Cons: "On May 16, 2017, there was a group of Albanian and American passengers rushing through Frankfurt Airport to catch the connecting flight to New York. Their first flight (LH#1425) from Tirana to Frankfurt was 45 minutes late causing them to eventually miss their connecting flight. At this point, the passengers were asked to show their passports, separating the US citizens from the rest. All the US citizens were loaded on a bus and provided hotel, dinner and breakfast. The Albanian citizens were moved to the lower level of the airport where they were left to freeze all night. Some of the passengers were elderly and had their heart or high blood pressure medications in their luggage that they didn’t have access to. One US-Albanian citizen was asked to separate from his Green-Card holder wife in order to receive the US citizen treatment…"
Pros: "The seat was very comfortable"
Cons: "They change the gate for transfer last minute"
Cons: "Boarding was a little chaotic. Everyone kind of ran up."
Pros: "The 747-8 is a nice new plane. The skinny Economy class seats are surprisingly comfortable. The entertainment system is good; I liked getting the feed from the forward-facing camera."
Cons: "Since last I flew with them, Lufthansa has added annoying charges like so many other airlines (but not usually full-service international airlines). Advance seat reservation was $30 per leg and seat. (I paid only for the overnight eastbound flight; on the return I found enough seats available by online check-in just after it opened.) One overweight bag was $100. Considering these charges, Singapore Airlines is the better choice for FRA-JFK. Minor quibbles with the entertainment system: * Front-facing camera points very low. Would be nice to see other planes during taxi (not just their wheels). * New "live map" during flight added useless gimmicks (view of earth from space), removed data (altitude, speed, outside temperature)."
Pros: "I flew in Business Class from JFK to Munich and then back to JFK via Frankfort. Both flights were on time and very smooth overall in both directions. The cabin crew was good both ways and all spoke English well. Lufthansa long haul flights still use the older 2 x 2 x 2 seating arrangement (unlike the more modern and common 1 x 2 x 1 arrangement where all seats have aisle access)...so if you don't want someone crawling over you trying to get to the toilet while you are trying to sleep be sure to choose a center seat (both with direct aisle access.) While not totally uncomfortable, the Lufthansa business class sleeper seats are narrower...less well padded...and have less recline options than those used by most other long haul airlines, especially the very narrow foot-wells. The pillows and blankets could be better too. The food was OK - but not on a par with what most other airlines serve on long haul flights. The JFK to Munich flight was non-problematic in all respects. However, there was a screaming baby in my aisle (Row 4 on a 747-8 only 2 seats away from me) on the Frankfort to JFK leg...which I found TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE."
Cons: "What airline would permit a lap baby (less than 2 years old...a periodic screamer...and totally unmanageable by its solo-travelling mother) to occupy it's Business Class section on a 7+ hour flight - while inconveniencing (and aggravating) all other nearby Business Class passengers who paid thousands of dollars/euros to ride in Business Class so they don't have to put up with this kind of nonsense? The answer is: "LUFTHANSA!!! And YES, this actually happened on my Frankfort to JFK flight (LH 400 on 23 January 2017.) I'm not sure if the woman in question paid for two seats or not but this unmanageable kid finally calmed down and fell asleep - but he did so in the seat next to her. If this unmanageable lap kid was allowed to do everything he did (including to use a Business Class seat for free IF that is what actually happened) then this just adds insult to injury. WAKE UP LUFTHANSA!!! People pay huge sums to ride in Business Class to avoid this situation - and it's time you BANNED this situation from even occurring."
Pros: "everything"
Cons: "none"
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "The plane left without us and we were still in the air. They shut down the airport in Frankfurt so we couldn't take off at our destination and when they allowed us to fly into Frankfurt, Lufthansa didn't wait and hundreds of people were stranded from different areas because of the closed airport to all flights. We waited 5 hours to rebook a destination back to the USA and traveling lasted 24hours. Right now I'm not sure if I'll be refunded my tickets for thedomestic airline flight. WE will NEVER want to fly out of Frankfurt and especially with Lufthansa. I have to say the people at the service counters were very nice and helpful but it took 5 hours to get serviced and were missed 2 possible connecting flights. Lufthansa was a good airline but that was 20 years ago. The airport is too big now has too many delays so I'll avoid it at all cost."
Cons: "The service provided by the crew was okay but their attitudes were horrible. It seems as though they did not want to work."
Pros: "The Lufthansa crew in Munich was very helpful when my boarding pass would not go through - I was not told I needed a new pass for that flight (as the first one had been cancelled and rebooked: 2 Air Berlin flights). No one was of help until this point, and the Lufthansa crew even offered to check on my baggage for us only to notice it never left Berlin; we didn't get it for 3 days. This did not surprise me because last time I flew Air Berlin for an 8 day cycling & camping trip, I didn't see my bike for 5 days (you can imagine this sort of ruins the entire point of the trip). After reading a lot of complaints with Air Berlin and never hearing back from their customer service (ever) after numerous forms filled out, I knew checking our bags with Air Berlin from the start would mean we wouldn't see them in New York. I even said to the Air Berlin employee at check in that I refused to check my bag because of my past experience and he "assured" me my bag would be at JFK when I got there. Ha. It was nice to see the Lufthansa crew shocked at how poorly this trip home was working out for my husband and I."
Cons: "After the cancelled flight, we were very disappointed to be rebooked with Air Berlin. We do not want to fly Lufthansa if they are so closely associated with Air Berlin, and will tell our friends the same."
Cons: "The plane was half way full, i had the seat in the economy section same like a big guy, at one point i asked the flight attendant if i can change my seat to another economy seat (I didn't want a free upgrade) because the guy in my right could fit in his seat with the arm rest down and it was getting uncomfortable for me. She told me if i want a upgrade, witch I refuse to get and didn't help me in any way with the problem that i had. I think for cases like this even though it's an economy seat it still cost 750$ and for a 9h flight witch transformed in a 14h flight because weather condition and fueling problems, flight attendants should be more mindful with the guest confort rather than upselling. Lufthansa it's a geat company with great airplanes but i think that in order to get people to come back you should treat people in the economy class like normal people that pay a price nothing close to the word economy"
Pros: "The flight staff was excellent!"
Pros: "I loved everything."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They cancelled my flight and I spent 7-8 hours on phone trying to resolve."
Cons: "I booked through Kiwi.com and they couldn't handle my special food request (kosher meal). Somehow it didn't reach Lufthanza at all. As a result I had nothing to eat during the entire transatlantic flight."
Pros: "Staff was very attentive to the children. Ability to follow the flight with the cameras. Person in front of us leaned his seat back and I was unable to get out due to an injured left arm. He did agree to move forward when we requested."
Cons: "No choice on food. Bathroom ran out of toilet paper, even tho we had reported that it was getting low."
Pros: "Great plane Great food Great movies"
Pros: "I liked the food and entertainment"
Cons: "I have flown with Lufthansa before and this is the first time I have had a cabin crew be rude. She came over to ask me if I wanted to switch my seat with someone and I said I enjoy my window seat and the middle seat she wanted me to switch to makes me feel castrophobic. She then proceeded to role her eyes and just walk away. It was very rude and disturbing of her to do that to a passenger. And on top of the rude service, my chair was not reclining causing the flight to be uncomfortable. I feel as though I have to think twice before traveling with Lufthansa again."
Pros: "As I noted above, both LH crews worked well. They were very professional, spoke languages as needed, accommodated passengers' requests, served edible food (mostly) and were visible and available throughout. The long-distance Airbus plane was comfortable enough. I like the idea of putting all the bathrooms downstairs ... but ..."
Cons: "... putting all the bathrooms downstairs might create difficulties for handicapped passengers. I am not sure how this is handled; perhaps help is provided, or perhaps there is one bathroom at flight-level."
Pros: "Free upgrade to business class!"
Cons: "My tv screen stopped responding 6 hours into the flight so that I could not watch it for the remaining 2.5 hours"
Cons: "The only suggestion I would have is that the entertainment options could be a bit more updated. The movie selection was not as good as I have experienced it on other flights (--- other airlines have a better 'new release' selection)."
Pros: "There was a particular flight attendant who went above and beyond to make our flight amazing!!"
Cons: "Gate agents could be more friendly."

They didn’t notify anyone that the CDC had changed it’s entry requirements and cost me my flight. I will never fly with them again.

Pros: "Amazing plane"
Pros: "The captain"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "Terrible business class."
Pros: "every thing"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable. Entertainment was good. Food was good."
Cons: "Having vegetarian meal options would have been great."
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Direct flight, punctual time. Crew is friendly"
Cons: "several toilets were out of order (were marked occupied instead of out of order so I was waiting in vain until a passenger informed me it was not working not occupied). food, looked like they were trying to conserve on passengers desserts.. microscopic (toy size) containers for coffee n tea??!"
Pros: "I didn’t like anything about this airline !! the staff looks miserable I was delayed on all three of my flights! also my luggage was broken by egypt air baggage department"
Cons: "EVERYTHING ! this was the worst airline I have ever flow !"
Cons: "That I could check in online instead of the airport, to get to pick the seat I want, I was placed in an isle seat 2 rows before the end of the plane, right behind me the we only 2 seats row, and almost every single one that went to use the restroom had to bump into my chair in their way back"
Cons: "4 bags, agent charged me $100 for 12 # excess wt will no not allow me to repack to the lighter “other 3 bags 18 pounds light, total. I think a refund is in order."
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Careless"
Pros: "Good price. Direct flight. Decent food."
Cons: "Offer more frequent complimentary drinks. Staff talking too loudly at back of plane while passengers trying to sleep."
Pros: "Big plane, multiple boarding points. Food did its job & helped with the long flight. Movies weren't expansive, but good choices to kill the time."
Cons: "The crew did not have the key to unlock to doors leading to the plane, which forced everyone to wait 30 mins standing in line. It was quite silly! It delayed our flight about 30-45 minutes - not much, but really painful when the flight is almost 12 hours. The crew didn't tell us what was happening either, but it was pretty obvious."
Pros: "Direct flight, nice crew and professional pilot, didn’t feel the plane touching the ground while landing"
Cons: "Definitely not cheap flight ;) Food is no good , bathrooms were not clean and flight crew refused to clean it !!!"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Comfort, service."
Cons: "No wifi"
Pros: "Cheap flight. Boarding was quick and thats about the only thing good."
Cons: "No Wifi, no alcohol, and food was terrible."

Cons: "Cheap air fare, i likeed all the services include an easy take off, landing on time, amazing food and crew were kind and comforting all customers on board."
Pros: "I liked everything about the experience on the actual flight from Cairo to New York. Staff was great, food was great (two meals), drink options were great from juices, sodas, water, tea, coffee all great. the entertainment was awesome with so many movie/tv show options. and you can always get up and ask for a beverage if you were still thirsty, and plenty of toilets on the plane so rarely a line greater than 1 person."
Cons: "They seemed to run out of chicken as the dinner meal, when they got to my the flight to Cairo from NY they also ran out of chicken, the person next to me got the last one, the same thing happened to me on the way to NY, the person next to me got the last chicken, i was kind of upset but the other option of beef was still good."
Pros: "We flew JFK to CAI roundtrip in coach. The whole process from check-in to landing was good overall, and the meals were also of good quality and complimentary as was baggage check-in (compared to US carriers who charge you for everything)."
Cons: "The bathroom got a little dirtier on the long haul flight compared to what I remember on other carriers, and phone support is only available during business hours which turned out to be ok, but could be a problem if you need to have a question answered last minute."
Pros: "Nothing was good. Everything was horrible."
Cons: "Flight attendants are rude and nasty. They take forever to accommodate you. When you press the flight attendant button to be taken care of. They don't care at all. If you ask for help you're left unhelped."
Pros: "They make us feel the tickets are discounted, and when you arrive to the airports for international flights which is normally allowed 2 luggage, they informed us we are allowed only one bag and charge for the second bage $125.00 also they told me that my carrying on is too big and charge me another $125.00 . I have had traveled with the same carry on many time but that's the new way of EGYPTAIR scams. Will not travel with them anymore..... They're the worst service, you will only see the cabin crew during the meal time , with almost 12 hrs flight you will see the crew only twice !!!!! The worst experience we ever have"
Pros: "Staff was attentive and welcoming"
Pros: "Food and service was good."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Pilots are excellent at smooth landing."
Cons: "To most Arabs, broadcasting a prayer before taking off is routine and goes without notice. To foreigners, it could initiate fear about the safety of the plane as it projects a need to rely on a super power to make it. It's cultural and could be misunderstood."
Pros: "Terrible food. Barely any entertainment in English at least."
Cons: "Although the flight attendants were nice, I felt they should have gone through the cabin more often offering water or other beverages since this was such a long flight,"
Pros: "The business class seat was very comfortable."
Cons: "Only one functioning toilet for a 14 hour flight. No alcohol. No menu describing the food."
