Cons: Food service was very slow. Flight from Dubai Seattle did not provide PPE
Pros: Good food and excellent service
Cons: Noisy plane made the entertainment inaudible
Cons: Best airline!
Pros: Good food. Professional crew. and overall good experience for a 15.5 hour flight.
Cons: Again, If you allow people to choose tickets online and they pick the front row, at least don't put them in the back row. That is the opposite of what they requested. After a.long flight and the limited recline, I am very sore in my back. Probably the most uncomfortable flight to date in my travels.
Pros: I am so glad to choose you guys thank you for everything
Pros: The crew good except one man i guess from India
Cons: The food was not good at all
Pros: Food was phenomenal. Unbelievably good.
Cons: Paid EXTRA for "Twin Seats". The bar in between seats didnt move. VERY uncomfortable for a 14 hour flight. People on that plane were like ANIMALS. Standing on the toilet seats, water all over the floor of the bathroom, out of toilet paper at 7 hours in. Disgusting. Never again.
Pros: Great crew. More room for seat would be better
Cons: All seats should look like the first class seats. I’m a little person and still was cramped. Can’t sit in same position for that long.
Pros: Very professional and helpful crew. Great entertainment.
Cons: Seats in economy a little cramped. Better to fly their A-380 double decker as more space.
Pros: Good flight and crew but.......
Cons: .........they left my suitcase in Seattle and it didn’t get on the flight to Dubai AND they didn’t want to give me a voucher for accommodation in Dubai despite a 15hr. wait for trip to South Africa. For two hours I pursued different officials in Dubai until they organized a voucher for overnight acc
Cons: The Crew could be more friendly
Pros: Great crew, especially Emma from the US and Amanda from Canada.
Pros: The flight was on time and the crew was nice.
Cons: The entertainment options and food were outdated and very much unpleasant. Probably the ground staff was careless, thus, they just broke my one baggage in that transit.
Pros: The crew was excellent and the food is very good. The portions were good and the drink selection is excellent.
Cons: The seating room is poor for someone who is 6'2" tall. My wife had issues with her ankles swelling. When we tried to get a cold compress to put on them we never received it. We also asked for some fruit instead of the pizza snack and didn't receive it either. I know you don't have much control over passengers, but we had a two year old child in our seating area and it screamed and cried virtually the entire 14 hour flight. Very annoying.
Pros: Comfortable seats, good entertainment and nice crew. The flight was good so I could sleep from time to time.
Cons: The flight was supposed to have one stop in Dubai. But the return route was changed so we had 2 stops, one in Dubai and another one in New York with long hours until the next connection. I arrived in Seattle a day later which made me lose a working day.
Pros: Well, the best thing was my free upgrade from Business into First ....which is perfect for the 14+ hours from Dubai to Seattle..... :)
Cons: I prefer the A380 to the 777-300 due to the availability of the bar/lounge area, and also the shower.
Pros: I love the meal
Cons: Some crew member is bad customer service they're not pay attention on you.
Pros: The crew & the ground personnel! Very polite, helpful & efficient!
Cons: I loved flying by Emirate! But not anymore! Too conjested!! You keep raising the fares but continue taking away the few perks that used to set you aside from other airlines! The food was less than ordinary! Sadly, you have taken away the open buffet between meals. This buffet of fresh fruit, chocolates & healthy bars were welcome & much appreciated! The little pouch with few essential things for travellers was very useful......you've taken take away too! Qatar, Turkish or Itthehad Airlines are beckoning me!
Cons: My one problem, which is not Emirates' problem, is the lady that sat behind me on my way to Dubai in October was unhappy if I reclined my seat at all. I didn't want to cause a problem, so I left it upright - later on, when I walked to the back, I saw her sleeping w/her seat reclined! That really was my only complaint, and like I say, that really has nothing to do w/Emirates.
Pros: entertainment part made time fly from Dubai to Seattle and staff too were awesome.
Cons: 15-hour flight not happy thing to be mid-air.
Cons: No room to stretch feet out, couldn't straighten legs out. I walked as much as I could, but my ankles and legs were swollen for three days after flight.
Pros: The food, crew and comfort were as good as can be on a 14 hour flight.
Pros: Hard working, friendly, and effective team. Your customer care is matchless!
Cons: I only have one objection. The crew lost control of restroom cleanliness toward the end of the flight. I know this is a challenge on a long flight, but your crews normally do better.
Pros: Sorry...pushed a button the it disappeared. Will try again... As always, returning home from an international two week trip is always thrilling but exhausting. The hours of travel seem slow. My half table of Advil PM worked wonders though. Gracious service, always willing to help myself and those seated around me. Clean bathroom facilities. Overall, I'm thrilled to be home safely.
Cons: I picked slimly through my food. Nothing seemed too appetizing. The entertainment options were a bit difficult to navigate. Choices were a bit limited as well for a long flight.
Cons: The crew were so friendly
Pros: We liked the excellent crew. They were very curtious and made sure every small request was fullfilled. We met couple of friends on the same flight. And so kids had excellent time during the 14 hour journey. The crew were very sweet to all the kids. Very patient and fullied there numerous requests.
Pros: The whole experience from boarding at DXB to landing at SEA was excellent. Crew was very friendly and patient and food was great.
Cons: Despite booking wheelchair assistance throughout, my parents did not get that benefit.
Pros: their hospitality
Cons: The food
Pros: On time departure
Cons: No food at all, the same flight in the other direction had food.
Pros: The flight crew is great, the plane is modern and the in-flight entertainment is awesome
Cons: Food quantities could be more. In such long haul flights, individuals line myself who do not sleep in focus tend to get hungrier. Boarding at Dubai has become a mess ever since Trump instituted a restriction on carry-on electronic devices for flights to the US originating from certain middle eastern counties.
Pros: Flight staff was responsive and courteous.
Cons: Seats are hard. Had to sit on pillow and blanket to soften. Entertainment screen did not work properly (would not follow finger movement - seat 45A. I did not tell staff.
Pros: from start to finish Emirates has always got the best service for economy class, been flying EK from DXB BOM and SEA DXB BOM for last 10 years with complete satisfaction
Cons: no complains
Pros: enough leg room
Cons: the touch screen system was poor, limited movie choices, food taste, poor crew members etc
Pros: Great service
Pros: Excellent experience
Pros: Good entertainment
Cons: Seat was broken, the crew was unresponsive to calls, food was expired/bad. Seating was terribly uncomfortable because it was broken. I couldn't recline and the crew didn't really help. I love Emirates and I always fly Emirates. So this was an exception and very disappointing.
Pros: Entertainment selection and legroom were good Entertainment selection included recent movies in various languages and premium TV shows.
Cons: Legroom in economy was good; however, seat width wasn't. You rub elbows with your neighbors while eating. Asian vegetarian meals were nauseatingly spicy - not the "hot" spicy type, but the cinnamon/cardamom overuse type. Most crew members gave a cold shoulder to passengers.
Cons: The in-flight crew was rude and aggressive. Also there was no communication or announcement regarding the delayed flight. Food was substandard. We've had much better experience with emirates in the past. Next time perhaps we will opt for another airline .
Cons: the vegeterian option was missing in lbreakfast and lunch
Pros: Its a 14 hour flight and there were some seats open so we were allowed to feel free and use them just so we can sleep better if we wanted to....
Pros: The cabin crew was helpful with stashing my carry-on bag given how full the overhead bins were. Courteous crew and good meal options.
Cons: Non-functioning overhead light from DBX to SEA.
Pros: PLenty of room (for tourist class), great entertainment system.
Cons: The crew did not pass through the cabin frequently enough to collect trash. As a result, a lot of trash built up in the seats and aisles during the 16 hour flight.
Pros: Best long haul flight I have ever been on in economy. The flight was great, the only draw back was our seats were in the middle of the middle but for a last minute reservation we were happy to be sitting together. The leg room was good. The crew was phenomenal. The food delicious!! The toilets were clean throughout 14+hour flight.
Pros: Crew and service were great. Food was very good.
Cons: Seats in economy are tight. Headphone jack is two pronged and no adapter so you are forced to use their cheesy headphones. Bring your own adapter.
Pros: There was sufficient legroom at the seat. Amenities were provided to remain "fresh". Not computer literate, the entertainment was more than adequate.
Cons: I told the flight attendant while boarding that it was not appropriate to have very little children on a flight of this length. Much to my chagrin, an Indian woman had two howling urchins one row in front of me. These howling urchins proceeded to scream their lungs out for 11 of the 13 hours of the flight!! One of the babies was so small, it looked like she had just pushed the critter out earlier that day!! Had they told the Indian woman to drive or swim to Dubai, the ratings would've have been excellent. I did not pay good money to have to sit in a NURSERY!!!!!
Pros: Flight attendants very very helpful in fixing some kind of mechanical error with my overhead light. When it was stuck on and the remote didn't work, they figured out they could reboot the system and turn it off. I'm glad I had my own headlamp so I could read during the flight, but overhead permanently off was much better than permanently on! I'm very grateful for their persistence in finding a solution. The agents at the Seattle location were very helpful assisting with our baggage problem, caused by Emirates gate agents in Dubai
Cons: The worst part of this trip was the surprise demand at the gate in Dubai that we check our duty-free liquor in a bag at the gate. There was no warning, no packaging to help protect our purchase, and no recourse We arrived in Seattle to find a liqour soaked bag. The liquor, of course, was a special gift and something we cannot simply repurchase. Very disappointing experience, especially after hearing good reviews of Emirate Air's generally good baggage handling and policies. The agents in Seattle helped remedy this, but it is a big hassle nonetheless as we arrive home to be dealing with damaged personal electronics and finding receipts all while jetlagged and getting back to work. my overhead light broke on the flight! but the flight attendants were very helpful and found a way to turn it off so I could sleep.
Pros: The crew were courteous on the return flight, accommodating . They took too long to retrieve trash after food and drink services. The chairs recline too far back limiting the leg room, moreso knee room of the parties sitting behind the reclined chairs
Cons: See above
Cons: At the Istanbul airport an item was taken from me for no reason. No regulation was shown for that item to be taken. I wasn’t comfortable with the way I was treated at the airport. The flight was very good
Pros: The Turkish Airline crew are treat you as guests not as customers.
Pros: It was a great flight.
Cons: The cabin temperature was a little warm
Pros: The service
Cons: No entertainment. Late boarding.
Pros: I have flown Turkish Air many times since 2010, and used to like the airline. Not so much anymore. I would say their entertainment center and food are pretty good.
Cons: They used to have an affordable Economy Premium option, now all they have are seats made for someone 5’5” 150 pounds. Anyone over 6’ can and will suffer greatly. I’m 6’4” and fly many of their 12 hour flights from LAX to Istanbul and have to sit sideways, until my back aches so bad I have to turn. They also keep their planes unbearably hot, which I have no idea why, making the trip in that cramped seat horrible. Their in between meals snacks consist of cheese sandwiches, and the attendants never come around with drinks or snacks. I also fly Singapore Air and Emirates and their service is subperb!
Cons: The crew on board was aloof, and somewhat rude. I was traveling with my 87 yr old mother and they did little to help, especially when we needed the restroom but they had the aisle blocked for most of the time, serving food. There was no way to get around to access the bathroom and the crew turned us away from the only available bathroom in the front. Really?! Not impressed at all. Also the flt was 30 minutes late making our connection tight. One of the young, gorgeous stewardesses was rude and dismissive of me when I asked about it.
Cons: Plane delayed Missed connection
Cons: Departed over 1/2 hour late making it necessary to make a mad dash for the next gate for the following flight.
Pros: On time.
Pros: I had heart surgery and they would not refund us the money Even after I got a note from my doctor that I would die on the airplane from the cabin pressure change they did not care
Cons: Nothing they suck
Cons: Long lines and very slow
Pros: I thought the food was excellent on both flights light , fresh and tasty. The seats were very comfortable and the staff very helpful. I was very happy with Turkish airlines.
Pros: AMAZING AIRLINE. Anyone traveling to this part of the world, fly Turkish!! Best international flight I have ever taken.
Pros: Free meal and drinkd
Cons: Flight was delayed but we were not informed of what’s happening Too hot, air conditioning did not work
Pros: Everything- well done
Cons: The people at the counter for boarding were not really friendly. the plane was dirty and in my opinion old. It made a lot of noice.
Pros: Overall was just ok
Cons: Dirty smelly bathrooms Bad breakfast
Pros: Superb entertainment system
Cons: The flight back from Dublin to Istanbul was awful, it was crowded, very warm, no air to breath.
Pros: Good schedules, short wait, nice and helpful personnel, on time, nice plane, bathrooms, good food
Cons: No air in cabin
Pros: Comfortable seat. Food acceptable.
Cons: Computers were down for more than 2 hours. I have a disability and I was told to seat and someone would come with a wheelchair when the problem would be solved. They completely forgot about me. When I saw that the people had boarded, I went to the counter asking for the wheelchair. They sent me to Egypt Air to request it. Of course Egypt Air said I was not their passenger, so I should request the chair to my airline. I tell the man from Egypt air to talk directly to his colleagues in Turkish Airways. He is angry and tells me he's doing me the favor of getting the chair even if it's not his job, so i should be very thankful. He requested the chair and sat me on it. Kept telling me I should be thankful to him, even if it wasn't his job. Turkish Airways never got the wheelchair for me and I have mobility problem but they tell me to get to another airline to get it! No entertainment originally in Spanish in any flights for Spanish speaking passengers.
Pros: Short flight-everything fine. Great plane.
Cons: Having to pay for internet if you want to use it. The way Israelis queue at the airport, leaving no room between you and them...too much pressure. Strange 'breakfast".
Pros: I was upgraded to buisnes class :)
Cons: Every thing was ok
Pros: Awesome service, comfy business cabin!
Cons: Boarding in Istanbul and Tel Aviv was chaotic, no business class boarding. Checking laptop in Istanbul was inconvenient. Lounge Istanbul was awesome however way too crowded to fully take advantage of it. Also should control people and what they takfor food. The lines were long and people would literally pile their plates with massive amounts of food, take it to their seat then leave it. Fix the lockers and add more, they are a wonderful asset but I was not able to take advantage of. Consider limiting access to manage crowds.
Pros: All aspects of the flight were flawless. Lounge in IST is always a great addition.
Pros: Nice to have food on such a short flight.
Cons: No USB charging outlet.
Pros: Very nice crew
Pros: the crew were great clean cabin
Cons: no entertainment systems lowered the food standard comparing to previous time I flew with them long boarding times
Pros: Crew was nice and courteous.
Cons: I'm 2.05m tall, and had no leg room or an exit seat. These seats should be saved for these specific occassions, which made the flight uncomfortable.
Pros: Crew was top notch , food was great, loved the hot towels you get to freshen ourselves with, crew friendly and very patient. Loved that flight wasn't full and the three of us could spread out and be as comfy as possible.
Cons: Very late 1.5 hours leaving JFK on way to Istanbul causing us to miss our connecting flight to Tel Aviv. Arriving almost 2.5 later in the evening.
Pros: The lost my 1 checked bag of luggage somewhere between tel aviv-istanbul-frankfurt!! Filed a report at Frankfurt Airport but it was filled with all my essentials and some valuables and the airport staff didnt seem to concerned in helping me.... To clarify, my experience through Kayak has been fine! However this whole ordeal has left a very sour taste in my mouth...i still dont have my luggage. They couldnt track it l yet....maybe you can help or forward this message to the appropriate authority. It is extremely important to me :/ Thanks, I still like kayak :) -addam rhodes
Cons: See literally everything above
Pros: Things that I liked I expected - we take it for granted: crew must be polite, boarding - efficient, leg room is normal.
Cons: Even in business class leg room is not ample, aircraft seems to be quite old, inside is well scoffed and scratched, my foot rest couldn't be raised or extended, no personal ventilation, temperature is interchangeably too hot or too cold, movie choice is far from awesome
Pros: Very nice service
Cons: I flew from Tel Aviv and upon arrival went through security so I could proceed to my departure gate. Then at the departure gate a whole new round of security. There was a priority line, but for some reason I didn't get in it, although I fly business. The line was not that long but it just did not move. And the a/c was not working. Worst boarding experience ever and I've been flying for over 40 years. When I boarded finally I asked if I could give a review and although they said yes- nothing. So I hope someone who cares sees this.
Cons: I was shocked when we landed in Ataturk and the sleeve was attached to the plane we had to get down to the ground from the middle of the sleeve. We were taken to the terminal by bus!! After the sleeve was already attached! I can understand when you are in some small airport or flying with low cost airline. But it's Turkish airlines in their home airport! Really disappointed.
Pros: I enjoyed that it was a new plane.
Cons: Given that I have multiple sclerosis, I did not appreciate having to go up a set of steep steps in order to get onto the plane..
Pros: Delicious meals, friendly crew, good selection of entertainment.
Pros: Food was excellent.
Cons: Can't think of anything.
Pros: Add good airline to Atlanta to eu
Pros: Turkish airlines is a wonderful company to travel on. I love the service, professionalism, kind, and patient service during the flight. Thank you!
Cons: I don't like landings but the crew did well!!
Pros: Everything was great , food, crew , fly, time..... thank you for a great experience ....
Pros: Flight in early November, where flying was very relaxed and spacious.
Cons: TV and Lights gave me a headache, but nothing you can do.
Pros: Small plane..no comfort
Pros: Impressive design of the cabin, especially the extra large WC. Wonderful staff. Food was exceptional and plentiful.
Cons: Need a bit more leg room in economy. The seat width and cushion was excellent, but when the person in front of me reclined, I could barely get out of my seat.
Pros: Pleasant crew, great quality service, good food.
Cons: Comfort was not the greatest. Felt smaller than other airlines but trip was 11 hours long so it wasn't comfortable.
Pros: Service Good Clean On time
Cons: Price is high
Cons: No vegan good woithout order
Pros: Crew was very nice though took very long to clear after meal. I love flying with Turkish Airlines on my business trips I guess August is not the best time ..
Cons: Flight was very full yet boarding was done with bus not a walk trough gate Screaming children and loud parents made the short fligh literally a nightmare. This is not in the airline control unfortunately yet impacted badly on my flight experience.
Cons: Refused to refund cancelled flight
Pros: Liked that the flight was on time and the plane clean. Online seat selection and check in was helpful but there was no wait at the airport either.
Cons: No inflight entertainment. Food was poor, but it was only a short flight.
Cons: Security going from venice to Istanbul then israel could have been better
Cons: Unable to travel due to Corona restrictions, company would not refund ticket.
Cons: Your crew didn't smile. They didn't seem very happy. The food was ok, but different from normal American cuisine. I didn't appreciate the crew's comments to some of my fellow passengers about how they we wouldn't eat the food. I would have liked to have been offered more to drink. Additionally I'm glad the crew is fond of one another, but they were loud and distracting. They were nicer to one another than the people flying. I didn't like being barked at and being given confusing directions regarding exiting the plane. Overall I wasn't impressed and would prefer to not fly with your airline again.
Pros: Business class upgrade
Cons: Sitting in window next time
Pros: Food was not available for flight.
Cons: Many delays boarding plane. No entertainment at all on a flight longer than 3 hours is insane. Flight crew are great, though.
Cons: Drops coming down from the Air condition system
Cons: Server was mean
Pros: Good. Thank you.
Pros: Lufthansa long haul flights has a really cool air flight status system.
Cons: Sometimes you just get the bad luck of having a smelly passenger next to you. This was one of those flights.
Pros: Reasonably comfortable seat
Cons: The flights was considerably delayed, due to Lufthansa's operation issues. Information provided at the terminal was nearly non existent and the posted information on the extent of the delay was inaccurate and not updated. All in all, not effective and non communicative handling.
Pros: The crew was fantastic!
Cons: Movie selection was very limited
Pros: Really friendly crew
Cons: No entertainment, worst food I've ever had at an airline
Cons: Boarding was ridiculously unorganized and stressful.
Cons: We had 30 minutes delay
Cons: i ordered 1 kosher meal and the flight attendant said they gave out all special meals and ours was not on the list
Cons: When I picked up my luggage one piece had a broken zipper and my belongings fell out
Pros: everything was good other than the entertainment package
Cons: not verymany movies to select
Pros: Flight out was delayed by four and a half hours, missed connection was a pain. Was not aware that Lufthansa changed their policy. To reserve seats you have to pay hundreds of dollars, which was not made clear while booking. Further the quality of their food was significantly degraded.
Pros: crew is nice
Cons: breakfast was pretty lame !
Pros: Food was good. Flight was on time, everything went smoothly
Cons: Where is my bag
Cons: * The gate was with bus, and not a direct terminal connection * There were no drawing sets for kids * The food was either overheated or somehow impacted - didn't look proper
Pros: The good organization and the friendly atmosphere.
Cons: The bad movies.
Pros: Very good care ofrom the staf Not cold
Cons: The breakfest was terible. Not tacty a t all. No entertainment. We took 2 difernt meals and both bad
Pros: The crew - seemed very amenable and pleasant on this flight. One helped me move to effectively solve the acute posture problem.
Cons: The seat - window by request, but it was in front of an emergency exit The seat - is jammed in - very tight - could not put it back to relax, and could not relax my left side by the window. My left shoulder and arm and left hip started hurting - couldn't sleep - took 2 days to get rid of the numbness in my arm. I asked to move, and it became obvious that there were many empty seats in the next section behind. I moved, and my comfort improved. Why was I given such a posture killer - especially on such a very long flight with seats to spare?
Pros: Flight attendants friendly and professional. Like the use of warm towels. Most overseas airlines no longer do this
Pros: The crew was very helpful, attentive, and friendly.
Cons: The vegetarian (Lacto-Ovo) meal options were terrible, and the seats were fine, but not amazing.
Cons: Seat was too small and really uncomfortable
Pros: The crew were very helpful, and the food was quite good.
Cons: This was an old plane. There were no video screens or wifi. Legroom was minimal.
Pros: Crew was friendly. I enjoyed the choice of entertainment. Food and drink were fine.
Cons: I wish we had more leg room. It was so crowded and I could barely move!
Pros: The crew
Cons: No TV
Pros: Staff on board was cordial und Wunderbar
Cons: Handle on wife's Travel Scoot was slightly bent but it still works.
Pros: The aircraft, an A320 was stable but cramped and entertainment depended on prior download of the Lufthansa app. Crew was very efficient and professional.
Cons: Cramped. Seat did not recline AT ALL and very hard. No entertainment unless you downloaded the app beforehand.
Pros: Friendly. And efficirnt crew
Cons: I didn't got the seats i asked for in the check in.
Pros: 1. The crew was very pleasant and responsive. 2. The entertainment selections were plenty, recent and without extra cost. 3. The food was nice (if you weren't having meat options). My travel companion was a bit disgusted by the meat. I enjoyed the pasta!
Cons: 1. The seats were extremely uncomfortable without sufficient cushioning. It felt like sitting on a plank. My back still hurts. We also had to straighten up the seats during meals because it was so bad for the person behind. 2. Boarding is a bit disorganized. Perhaps try splitting the boarding process into zones so it isn't a mad house free for all after the initial boarders. 3. On my flight to Frankfurt, the plane was half empty, yet my seat was changed from row 8 where I would have had almost no one near me back to row 23 where they had cramped all the passesngers into one area of the plane. This was done without request or explanation.
Pros: The flight was comfortable, the crew very nice, the food good and many good movies to choose from.
Cons: Could have used a few more snacks. But didn't bother to ask for any either.
Cons: Awful customer service once out of the airplane. It took 2 hours from landing to get our luggage. Just terrible. How many times can someone hear a generic announcement about luggage being here momentarily? This left a very poor impression of Lufthansa overall for me and everyone in my party.
Pros: Lufthansa rocks!
Pros: Entertainment and crew was excellent
Cons: One flight assistant seemed a bit gruff and impatient compared to the others . Also food was nothing special. We could have used more water offerings and trash pickups during the flight afterwards the cabin was a mess.
Pros: It was my first time using the upper deck of a 747. The setup is pretty decent with lay flat beds (I still couldn't sleep though). The attendants were all very nice. The food was much better than on my inbound flight on United...
Cons: The entire experience was ruined by one hour spent on the tarmac in Seattle, waiting for a gate to become available... This is lame not only for the passengers but also for the people waiting to pick them up. The selection on the entertainment system was limited.
Pros: They didn't charge me for my surfboards which was great. It was my only check-on bag and under two meters and that should be free on every airline. Flight attendants were very nice and professional. I gave the food 5 stars based on other airline food, I'm not expecting restaurant quality at 37,000'. Movie selection was adequate for me, although I've seen some complaints in the reviews here.
Cons: It was a little tricky checking in on my phone. The check email reminder didn't carry the info I needed to check in which required extra searching and copying and pasting. That experience could be streamlined. There was group confusion when being directed to board the plane on two flights.
Cons: I had to scramble on the last day to ensure I have an alternate flight via British Airways
Pros: Nice flight. Wish all flights were as nice as this.
Cons: They maintain the economy class nearly at 30 degC...hot.
Pros: Captain was personable and made the flight more enjoyable
Cons: Length, which could not be helped
Pros: Crew was helpful, slightly relaxed reclining. Baggage delivered on time & without damage.
Cons: Flight took after 1.5 hours delay , with 30 min incremental delay notifications. After take-off, food service started 2 or 2.5 hours later , they could have expdited it considering that the flight was delayed. Seats ,as I have come to expect from Lufthansa , were cramped laterally ,although i was pleasantly surprised with how much they reclined, given my low expectations. Main dish in the Food service was served hot but were quite minimal in taste/quantity & variety comapred to other inter-continental providers. I was feeling hungry most of the flight and couldnt sleep as well.
Cons: Checking in in Tel Aviv was the worst experience I have had in checking in. The ladies just sat there, explained almost nothing, gave no eye contact. Finally, they told me the flight was overbooked and that was why I was waiitng. They offered nothing else--as if I had done something wrong (the impression they gave me), rather than Lufthansa. I waited a full 1 1/2 hours. No other explanation. At the very end, when they finally put me on a flight, they chastised me for not checking in online---this was NEVER offered to me by Lufthansa on my flight there or on the return. With other airlines they always send me an email to check in online ahead of time. Lufthansa did not. I could not have been more disappointed with this checking in experience with Lufthansa. Again, the worst in my life and would be cause for me not to recommend Lufthansa to others. Otherwise, the flight itself and the actual crew were great. So disappointing to have such an unprofessional check in experience.
Pros: Fast and efficient boarding. Cheerful and helpful crew. Clean cabin. Everything was 100%.
Cons: Nothing. I was a happy camper from beginning to end.
Pros: Everything about the service staff the plane amazing
Pros: Everything except food
Cons: Food variety could be an order improvement add
Cons: Windows locked dark for whole flight in the DAYTIME going over spectacular scenery in Norway and Greenland. No eye shades given out. Totally depressing. Food very mediocre with nothing Arabic in spite of great Arab food.
Cons: Let passengers look out the window in the daytime. Going over Norway and Greenland with fantastic scenery and windows are blacked out whole trip. I paid to select a window seat. Totally depressing to be in the dark all day. Windows black even when lunch served. Tasteless Western food. Would have liked something Arab. (I’m a white American)
Pros: The crew was nice and courteous. The flight went smoothly. The bathrooms were easily accessible.
Cons: They barely offered water on the 11-12 hour flights. The crew was not around other than to hand out meals during the first and last few hours.
Cons: Rude staffs at the check in
Pros: Crew attentive, flight left and arrived on time
Cons: More movie and TV show options. Also foot rest would have been nice.
Cons: Didn't think of something because the flight was awesome.
Cons: RJ will fail any legitimate expectation. Business is supposed to board and receive luggage according to priority. RJ is sure to disappoint u. It is a low cost carrier that pretends to be otherwise
Pros: This is the first trip on the Egyptian airline and the last trip and the reason delay.
Cons: I hd a very large person seating next to me. He should have been made to buy 2 seats. Very uncomfortable for such a long flight.
Pros: Quick boarding and on time departure and arrival.
Pros: flight was fairly empty, so very comfortable seating as nearby seats were not occupied.
Cons: everything was fine -- now the departure and connection to another flight was NOT NEARLY AS SMOOTH !!
Pros: The flight was one time for departure and arrival
Pros: nothing. there is no responsibility from voyama towards clients services
Cons: every thing
Pros: Crew exceptionally nice
Cons: Can’t turn off the screen
Pros: The flight the plane the staff on plane the food the entertainment
Cons: waiting lines to get into the gates and passport checks for departure. it was too long and mis-leading since the machines were not working eventually had to go to a manual check (not machine) and almost missed the flight. It's bad management of the Ben Gurion Airport.
Cons: On counter, some workers were not nice
Pros: Had a great seat
Cons: They didn’t offer basic beverages
Cons: It is time to change the food! the food is so bad . I get the filling that they don't care' just like that!
Pros: Quick, simple flight arriving 7 minutes early.
Cons: About 12-15 minutes late boarding with no explanation or announcement. Food & entertainment should NOT be rated on such a short flight.
Cons: Bad service bad attitude
Pros: The seat room, friendly staff
Cons: 3 hour delay... not Jordanians fault (fog)
Pros: No thing
Cons: The staff
Pros: Should be there are arrangement for bording we found all the travelers bording on the same time and those people more than on bags and over size can not fit on the cabaint, then the people on front seat can not find space for small hand bag, flight attendant dissapaer all time of travel , children walking inspire of the alarm of seatbeat light ON, toilet are very dirty no body clean it
Cons: Like from air lines to check the size and number of bags for the passengers boarding to allow the other to put their bags on the cabaint , and give more instructions for fligth attendees
Cons: I actually didn't fly QR. My RJ light from TLV to AMM was delayed by approx 2 hours. I asked to be taken off the flight in order to fly the day after from TLV to LCA and take QR. However the RJ gate agents explained that there are over 40 people on the flight that need to take the QR from AMM and that the ties between RJ and QR are very strong and the QR flight will wait the necessary 15 minutes. However, as we landed in AMM we saw the QR aircraft push back 5 minutes earlier than the scheduled departure. We got stuck in AMM and the RJ people were nice but totally inefficient and claimed that they were limited by their corporate procedures. I asked to be put on an Etihad flight that was scheduled to leave 2 hours later and that would put me at the end of the day in MAA (my destination) around 2.5 hours later which was acceptable in my eyes. The transfer desk agent said he is going to arrange it, disappeared for 45 minutes and then came and told me this is already too late for Etihad (it was not) and anyway they cannot let me take Etihad since they are not a part of "One World". I argued a bit and he said ok went to teh back office and disappeared for another 20 minutes. at that point he came and told me that all is taken care of and here is my new flight and proceeded to show me an itinerary which took me through BKK to MAA but the AMM-BKK flight will leave only at 0130 at night (this was around 1430) and get to BKK in the afternoon tomorrow. Then I will have to wait in the airport another 8-9 hours to fly to MAA. hence 2 nights without sleep staying at airports. BTW, I was the only Business/first passenger but this did not confer on me any special treatment. I refused to take this route and at the end asked them only to get me back to TLV and there I will change the whole route and go tomorrow on QR from LCA. I had to wait at AMM airport until 2100 and only now - 2300 - reached home which I left at 0600 this morning. BTW, i don't think that they restored my ticket to its original form (which was a full QR ticket covering also the RJ and Pegasus flights. but I was too tired to argue. I will postpone my trip by one more day and change the route to avoid another debacle like this one. Also, I chatted with the QR people in Amman, and ithey claim that they were not told that the RJ from TLV had 40 passengers connecting through them. This is the absolute opposite of what the RJ people claimed. Last, all his is without even mentioning the issues this delay caused since I have people who came specifically for this, waiting for me in MAA and God only knows when I will manage to get there and whether or not they will wait for me. Guys, you have to do something about this. I am quite a regular flyer and this is the worst experience I had.
Pros: Fast check in, Comfort seats
Pros: Left on time. Probably overpriced for the length of the flight. Baggage was out promptly.
Pros: We left early and arrived early. Seats were more spacious than I expected for economy class. It was a short flight so there was no food service, just orange juice.
Cons: The airline canceled my return flight without notice because I did not board an earlier connecting flight.
Cons: When My luggage was searched at the gate of armman before fly back to Chicago, my camera was taken away by security person, he never returned to me. I only found out when I got home.
Cons: I'll was good
Pros: It’s a 25 minute flight. It’s all good. :)
Cons: I pre ordered a kosher meal. It was said to me that someone miscalculated and there were not enough kosher meals. I was left hungry and starved on such a long flight.
Pros: Very short, only a half hour flight
Cons: nothing not to like
Pros: All new
Cons: Extensive security. Warm plane. No charging outlets.
Pros: The Dreamliner is the best plane I’ve ever boarded, it was used for this short flight.
Cons: Could not check in online, had to get the boarding pass at the airport.
Pros: Great service
Pros: Afrithng nice
Cons: That alcohol saeling
Pros: Food and entertainment
Cons: People weren't sitting in their assigned seats. They resolved the issue by reassigning those who were last on the plane.
Pros: Modern aircraft
Cons: Food is terrible Service is marginal They serve a mediocre meal right after takeoff then you don't see them again until right before landing with a dry snack
Cons: The delays
Pros: Good service, leaving on time
Pros: Loved all of the kind smiling faces on all of the flight attendants
Pros: I loved the food - some of the best I've ever had in the air! There was a plentiful array of free movies and TV shows available for free. There was room to stretch out in the seats.
Cons: I found the process of the layover in Amman to be confusing. Apparently, I could not get a free hotel for my layover. I tried to use the Crown Lounge as well but was told I could only use it (and pay to use it) during certain hours, which was confusing.
Pros: I realy liked the airport where there are a lot of restorants and caffe and great duty free shops. The lounge is great and its free for master card and american express holder
Pros: Excellent service
Pros: Quick and easy boarding process, nice person at check-in counter
Cons: I used the restroom in the plane before takeoff and the it was absolutely filthy. It was clear it did not receive any attention between flights. I was sitting in the emergency exit row and, during takeoff, the plane made a horrible, howling/whining noise that I've never heard before. Everyone was looking around and fearful. I fly often and this was the kind of noise when you wonder "is this where it all ends?" Not sure if it was the engine just outside or the emergency exit not being fully sealed but it was the first time in a long time that I've been fearful on a plane.
Pros: The prices were low and the crew was great. A lot of entertainment options, also!
Cons: Boarding was rather disorganized
Cons: It was a six hour flight. It would have been great if they Offered a second drink.
Cons: Plane was too hot!! Ac nor working !
Cons: I missed boarding by one minute and was told there was nothing they could do. Our connecting flight landed on the other side of the airport and after literally running through DFW, we were told our flight home had already boarded, we arrived at 6:21, flight left at 6:30. American Airlines screwed us again. Just paid $300 for a rental vehicle so I could make it home.
Pros: They held the flight for us.
Cons: Something to eat
Cons: No more comments!
Pros: the crew
Cons: plug ins
Pros: Leg room
Cons: Plane was late for takeoff and we arrived 30 minutes after scheduled time. They didn’t announce a delay or apologize.
Pros: Nicole and I really like the Economy Plus seating with the extra legroom. It is a good compromise between sitting in cramped Economy seating and spending way too much money in Business Class.
Cons: I wish that the Seattle Tacoma Airport has an Admiral's Club Lounge. Actually, I might as well fess up... I wish that EVERY airport had an Admiral's Club Lounge. I also wish it would be possible to "gift" miles to family members. I would love to have my son and daughter-in-law take advantage of my miles to go on a honeymoon.
Pros: Friendly crew, good food and entertainment.
Cons: Seat comfort and space aboard.
Cons: Prior to boarding, a gate attendant talked to the passengers in a VERY condescending way with regard to their carry on luggage. The original plane had mechanical problems, identified after half the passengers had already boarded. It was stressful enough without this person raising her voice and talking to us as though we were children.
Cons: Bigger seats
Cons: The flight comfort was very bad. The plane was extremely warm and people we beginning to feel bad. Several mentioned it and asked multiple times to have the the cabin air conditioning turned down
Pros: Nothing. I missed this flight because of a delay of my flight on Friday.
Cons: Delayed taking off by 35 mins because of onload slowness and issues. Resulted in landing late in seattle and missed the last transportation option home for the night. Should have had 1.5 hours to make my shuttle. Instead got stuck in my destination airport for the night.
Pros: The attendant in first class was really good at his job. The rest seemed a bit lost
Cons: The food. The "lasagna" looked and tasted like it came from chef boyardee can
Pros: No issues - which is what I expect
Cons: USB chargers on seats
Pros: comfortable seats
Pros: Service was wonderful and flight pretty much smooth for the 6;5 hour ride back to Seattle. I do enjoy taking American Airlines.
Cons: Had a 350 pound gentleman in the seat in front of me and had he had no idea of how stressed I was when he would try to adjust his to go back further.
Pros: One of the few non-stop flights between Seattle and Philadelphia. Convenient times for my travel needs
Cons: There are 9 boarding groups some of which have no one in them. I don't understand why. Seats don't have screens for entertainment so you have to use your own device to. Make sure you have extra batteries since there is no power to charge on board.
Pros: Nothing, this was a miserable flight.
Cons: Gate at Philadelphia was tiny with not enough space for everyone on the plane, it was a 6 hour flight and no snacks beyond pretzels were available-not even for purchase. I'd just come off an 8 hour international flight where I was provided lunch, ice cream, a pot pie snack and frequent beverage service. Somehow as soon as you are flying domestic on a slightly shorter flight American Airlines thinks its okay to treat customers like garbage-nothing but some sad pretzels and 2 rounds of drink service was provided for a 6 hour flight. The seats were super uncomfortable with no head rest, no personal entertainment devices were provided, and there was no general entertainment for the whole plane-seriously I've never been so bored. I would have fallen asleep from boredom but the seat was too uncomfortable so I couldn't even do that. The plane landed in Seattle but sat without unloading passengers for 20 minutes because the gate crew wasn't ready. We didn't get our checked baggage for over an hour after landing. When asked, customer service reps said that the S gate was far from baggage claim-seriously I'm not sure how that is a reasonable excuse. Other airlines arrive into S gates and have timely baggage claim service. American Airlines has no standard for timely baggage claim service like other airlines (Alaska) so there were no repercussions for such late baggage service. We left the airport with our luggage over 90 minutes after the plane landed. The entire experience is just another example of American Airlines of why the terrorists won't even fly American Airlines. I was seriously disappointed to find out that the British Airways flights we booked were operated by American instead of BA crews. I seriously will never select this option (or fly American) again if I can help it.
Pros: I had nice leg room as I was in the exit row
Cons: There weren’t any USB chargers which was confusing because the flight was 5+ hours long. There were no media options either, or blankets and the plane got cold.
Pros: Had row to ourselves.
Cons: Entertainment arm rest did not work, flight attendants we're not very attentive to used items left on tray s to pick up. Empy cans ad wrapper s say for 3 hours before being picked up. Middle rest room was left very dirty due to bad hygene of passengers.
Cons: Flight across the US had poor quality meal service, no charging port and no entertainment. Despite paying for an exit seat with more leg room the seat was very narrow and uncomfortable for the long flight.
Pros: Seats in general Economy ended up being fairly comfortable and headrests would bend enough to actually support my head while sleeping. Nice to have granual baggage tracking info in the AA app.
Cons: Overhead entertainment video quality was horrible. Awful user interface for trying to figure out and use the personal device streaming entertainment. Did not order food on the flight, but options were very limited for a 5.5 hour night-time flight (8p EST -> 11p PST)
Cons: Crew told us bulshit story about strong winds, even though flight times were normal. Diverted the flight to DFW, where we stayed for almost 2 hours fo refueling.
Pros: Excellent flight crew, attentive and polite.
Cons: Fellow passengers didn’t feel there was adequate space, causing issues with armrests.
Pros: Only good thing about the flight is the price.
Cons: I do not like the two hour delay, after a hour maybe consider getting another plane.
Cons: The bathroom supplies were not replenished. In fact, the facial tissue was empty at beginning of flight. When the toilet paper ran out, I finally informed the attendant and they fixed everything. It seems that checking on that stuff was not part of their routine.
Pros: The flight crew were amazing!
Cons: Gaye agent refused to let me take my medically necessary medical equipment and meds on board. She refused to look at my Dr note that TSA had no problems with after screening. It was humiliating and horrible!! I have a video ad well as statements on the flight from other passengers regarding how she treated me it was horrible!!
Cons: No entertainment and no gate printed on my ticket. My flight to Dallas was delayed and I had to waste time figuring out what gate to take a train to.
Pros: Left on time, relatively comfortable considering I had already spent almost 9 hours on a previous flight, landed 30 minutes early
Cons: Mixed feelings about the entertainment app, I was pleased that something was available at all, however had the person sitting next to me not mentioned I needed an app to watch the in flight entertainment moments before it would have been too late to use the internet to download it, I would not have been able to use it, unless paying for a limited time package from AA to use the internet to download the app. A better job of advertising of the gogo app is needed more than the booklet in the seat pocket. Also I was only able to watch one movie, after that the system kicked me out saying high usage was making it not work for me. The gate changed a couple of times which had me trawling up and down the H and K concourses, could have done without that after the 9 hour journey I had already taken.
Pros: Comfortable, very friendly helpful staff
Cons: Nothing, well I miss the movies shown on their divides rather than my tablet
Pros: The crew was very friendly with our girls and accommodating with switching around our seats so we could sit together.
Cons: There weren't any screens, which surprised me since our 3 other flights had them, and we unfortunately didn't have a backup plan. Our kids were disappointed. Also in order to sit with our young children we were only given the option to sit in the very last row that doesn't recline which was difficult seeing as the flight took place in the middle of the night according to our bodies. No actual food was provided despite it being a 6 hour dinner time flight.
Cons: We had too little time to switch flights. We were stressed and had to run a lot in order to make it to required connecting flight
Cons: Dry / borderline rude staff and hostess. Dated plane. Tiny seats. But that is pretty much the baseline of airlines in the US. When will carriers start to take note from International carriers..leaps and bounds ahead.
Pros: It was not a full flight, so I was given an aisle instead of a middle seat...for which I was grateful.
Cons: Flight was 6 hours...almost as much as my previous international flight, yet food and drink was only available for purchase. No entertainment options. Plus, wireless was $21! I needed to work and had to purchase, but that is really quite a rip off compared to other airlines.
Pros: This flight was amazing! The crew was friendly and helped me when I had a panic attack from flying. It was very appreciated
Pros: Friendly and willing cabin crew, on time, clear skies and no turbulence, relatively quiet, good leg room
Cons: Food not tasty, meat tough and dry..no one around us ate it. Dessert was o.k.
Pros: It was effortless... easy boarding and accommodating crew. There was a lot of turbulence so only one beverage service and no food. Would rather be safe than have crew injured.
Pros: Entertainment system is good.
Cons: Flight was over crowded with baggage. Some people were allowed to board with 3 cabin bags and others weren't allowed to bring any on board.
Cons: Longer flights should have screens in the headrests
Cons: I asked the woman at the gate prior to boarding if there were electrical outlets on the plane. She looked it up and said, its an Airbus, yes they have outlets at each seat. I didn't worry too much about charging my devices at my layover because I knew I could charge them on the plane. When I got on it was clear that there was no outlets, no video on the backs of seats, no devices being handed out for purchase. Nothing. I'm definitely used to more updated planes, but I would have been ok without the misinformation. I ended up on a 4 hr flight bored out of my gourd—which could have been avoided.
Cons: Despite arriving more than an hour ahead of time, I had to wait in a long line to get to the ticket counter and by the time I got there the assistant refused to check my bag. I then had the choice of catching another flight standby, possibly not even arriving on the same day, or changing my ticket for an obscene amount of money. I hope to never deal with AA again.
Pros: seat comfortable enough
Cons: unbelievably tightly spaced seats. Incredibly uncomfortable to have knees pushed into seat ahead - - so tight almost impossible to get feet under seat.
Cons: The captain announced that the flight crew exceeded 9 work hour per day due to the takeoff delay so the passengers were forced to sit and wait in a stuffy stationary aircraft for 2 hours prior to takeoff until a different crew could arrive to service the flight.
Cons: As it was the continuation of an international flight, I believe I travelers like me deserved to be treated with free food and not just drink and water.
Pros: Chairs were very comfy and wider than some airlines.
Cons: Crew not overly friendly and not very attentive, and there were lots of empty seats so there wasn't much excuse. Also, I had an issue with the plane. I think no screens on a cross-country flight is not good business. Not everyone is savvy with go-go inflight. And if there are no screens, could there at least be outlets? I was so tired after my Paris flight and wanted to chill with some go-go entertainment, but my battery was low and there were no outlets. I know not all flights can have these luxuries, but if the flight is over five hours, I think it should be better equipped.
