Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "This Lufthansa flight was operated by United Airlines. Coach seating was uncomfortable after a couple hours despite moving around regularly."
Pros: "Reliable airline."
Cons: "Overly strict on luggage size and weight. I’m talking about 0.1 kg difference. I was attempted twice to check the only small case I have, which is an exact fit to Lufthansa standard. Very annoying. Won’t fly LH again. British Airways is a lot better."
Pros: "Crew was thoughtful"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable and the food was not worth eating"
Cons: "Luggage did not arrive."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Free drink and snack. Comfy seats and very easy boarding process"
Pros: "Super easy boarding, just scan your ticket and go. Staff was very friendly. On our short flight from Munich to Rome we were served a complimentary sandwich and option of beer, wine or other refreshments. There was plenty of leg room compared to our other recent flights"
Cons: "There was no in flight entertainment. Not that was really needed it with such a short flight."
Pros: "Super service. From gate in Frankfurt to Rome."
Cons: "Communication on which luggage carousel our luggage was going to be on. The screen said, carousel 11 when in actuality, it was carousel 10. Very confusing...and caused me a delay. That’s the only frustration in the entire trip so far."
Pros: "The airline staff was great. Everyone really helpful."
Pros: "1st Class is a joke. They leave the middle coach seat vacant. You do have more overhead storage since there are fewer people in "1st Class". Otherwise you may as well be in coach. For flights within Europe this appears to be the standard. Save you money fly coach when traveling within Europe."
Cons: "The seat and service."
Pros: "The flight attendants were wonderful."
Cons: "You take a bus to reach the plane and the seats are uncomfortable without any entertainment systems. Thankfully the flight was only 1.5 hours."
Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly, and service was fast. The snack was a chicken and carrot sandwich. It was good."
Cons: "The boarding was delayed twice and no explanation was given by the staff. We arrived 1 hour late."
Pros: "Good service."
Pros: "The staff were very friendly; more so on this flight than the last flight. I booked seats for the emergency exit knowing it gives more leg room."
Cons: "My baggage was not on the carrousel that was listed on the display, it took a long time to get my bag and it caused me to be late to check into my lodging."
Cons: "no screens"
Cons: "Horrible flight"
Pros: "Much shorter flight time."
Cons: "My experience on the second flight was completely different from the first. Staff was not as friendly. Food was bad. No entertainment due to short flight time. Not as good of an experience."
Cons: "Seems like they want to nickel and dime you for everything now..."
Pros: "It was overall a great flying experience."
Cons: "One of my connections was way too short. I almost missed my flight. I had to run!"
Pros: "Boarding was automated gates was easy."
Pros: "Once again, the in-flight crew was excellent."
Cons: "The Frankfort airport is a nightmare. They have loooooooong gateways, so when I Finally got through security FOR THE THIRD TIME, it’s a 10 minute, speed-walk to the gate. Again, a flight delay was the only thing that made the connection possible. I made it to the gate with 3 minutes to spare, so no time for the bathroom, no time to get lunch or even a bottle of water, no time period. And at the end of it all, my bag is lost."
Pros: "There's nothing much that's positive to say about this leg of our journey."
Cons: "Not only was the flight delayed, but there was confusion at the gate for boarding of even first or business class. We had to carry our luggage down 2 flights of stairs to get on a bus, which then transported us a very long ways away on the tarmac. Then it was an older model plane and the engine noise, even though we were up front, was extremely loud! It was somewhat worrisome. The food was terrible and by the end of the 90 minute flight our rears were sore from the poor seat cushioning. Not a good experience at all. All of this was after a terrible experience and delay just trying to connect flights within the German airport and the security delays that probably would have made us lose our flight if it wasn't delayed. There needs to be a better system if you are not staying in Germany but just connecting flights from the same airline!"
Pros: "The service to clients number one. I like"
Pros: "Served sandwiches even though 1.5 hour flight."
Cons: "Slow and unorganized boarding. Crew was not outwardly friendly."
Cons: "Lost a whole day and a half of vacation!"
Cons: "Having to go through passport control and security a second time took too much time for the connection between flights."
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Nothing good to say"
Cons: "Expect to be delayed if it snows a bit in Munich. Delayed for more than 7 hours total. 3 of those on the plane in Munich. Horrible!"
Pros: "A male flight attendance made me feel uncomfortable. I sat in empty sit with number 3 instead of 4 and he asked me to check my number on my boarding pass. WIth an extremely directive and dictating tone in his voice he told me YOU SHOULD GO AND SIT to what your ticket says. It is VERY important to be sited, although the seats are available you should be sited where your boarding pass directs you to be."
Cons: "I realized that some people of their crew are extremely insane! I have never had an issue like this, with DELTA or AIR FRANCE, or KLM, or NORWEGIAN, or SAS If it was only one persona that I had to deal with, which it was on my flight from NY to Munich I would say , it was coincidence . One person is not a statistical point and accuse the whole Company. But this was repeated on my second flight from Munich to Athens. Then I said, this is not coincidence, it is a pattern that is repeated and not professional . NEVER AGAIN WITH LUFTHANSA is my decision and my recommendation."
Pros: "Efficient crew. Quick service, quick flight."
Cons: "No negatives."
Cons: "Did not happen"
Pros: "Plane was clean, crew nice and courteous."
Pros: "Comfortable and clean planes. Flight was on time. Free drink!"
Cons: "Check in with checked baggage required an agent. As with almost every flight in Europe, boarding was chaotic, not following zones, priority or people requiring assistance/gate agents did not enforce the boarding rules."
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above."
Cons: "Short flight so no entertainment provided or needed."
Pros: "The crew was great, the food wasn't bad and the seat was comfortable and I am very tall"
Cons: "Delay for one hour"
Pros: "The crew. They made an uncomfortable flight acceptable."
Cons: "Boarding confusing and flight experience poor. The crew was the only nice part. The rest, not worth the money."
Cons: "The boarding gate was changed three times. I fell asleep at one of the gates. Luckily I woke up and realized the second change in time to still make it there."
Pros: "Staff , food , wine"
Cons: "Sat too close to the toilets , bad wafting smells. Only 1 earphone on my head set worked, unless I jiggled the plug. The plug did not fit neatly into the jack ."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Pros: "Excellent service. Excellent food! So thoughtful."
Cons: "Seat is not premium."
Cons: "Our flight from SFO to Frankfurt was cancelled and we were re-booked on a very bad itinerary."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Small leg space"
Cons: "It was a transatlantic flight in coach. There is no way to make that a pleasant experience. Entertainment system was down. Ran out of one dinner option."
Cons: "Lost my Baggage for 2 days."
Cons: "Breakfast was just a roll. I would have preferred eggs."
Pros: "Best crew ever. By far most friendly staff and excellent service."
Cons: "Nothing that I know"
Cons: "This was a united flight. The personal was not helpful, only in helping me communicate with the airport in Rome to change my flight. I had to pay 97 euros for this change. I am upset and think it is not fair that I need to pay for a problem united had with their flight. I also think star Allience failed as they were not able to resolve the problem with their partner airlines."
Cons: "My connecting flight to Rome wasn't listed on any monitors, and four people couldn't find Terminal A on the map. Fortunately I found some fellow Americans who also couldn't find Terminal A , lower numbered gates, from our current Z gate. We went to the right, following most disembarked passengers and signs for some A gates....a mess! In the end, we had to go all the way back, past our original gate to a Customs area where they just stamped our passports and onward to our gates. It seemed like the signs only helped if you were going in the correct direction to begin with. Even my German friend said how bad that airport is for directions!"
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "We asked if the Cajun chicken (which by the way isn’t anything like Cajun chicken) contained any nuts as one of us in the party is severely allergic, only to wait more than 15 minutes and were told they don’t have an allergen sheet so they don’t know! Pls take food allergies seriously!"
Pros: "The entertainment system was great"
Cons: "The ride was somewhat turbulent but nothing can be done for that"
Pros: "The meal."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "The whole flight from Philadelphia to Rome was on American Airlines, not British Air. This was confusing at first and made it difficult to know what airline desk I needed to check into, but once that was clear it all went smoothly. The dinner was mediocre and the breakfast terrible."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "In flight entertainment was great"
Cons: "Flight was very oversold. I purchased an aisle seat and had to give it up to a family that needed to be together. Would be nice if the airlines didn't charge more to pick a seat so situations like this could be avoided."
Pros: "Very nice hard product complimented by a great cabin crew."
Cons: "The crew set the bar too high for future flights :)"
Pros: "Food was okay."
Cons: "No advance check in left me waiting in line at my connection in order to get a center seat in the middle of a group. There’s no excuse for manual check in in this day and age."
Cons: "Never taken!!!"
Pros: "All the services"
Cons: "TV screen didn't work too well. Delayed starting"
Pros: "We did not fly to Rome on British airways. We flew Delta. Get it together"
Pros: "Food was okay. Luckily plenty of wine to get through 8 hours on this horrible plane."
Cons: "No individual video screens. Also our audio did not work ( true of most of one side of plane) so we could not even watch movie on the TINY overhead screen. Reading lights also did not work. We had no options to pass the time for an eight hour flight. The crew was unconcerned about the problem. They seemed grumpy!! This plane should not be used for long haul flights."
Pros: "I arrived at my destination at least! Good crew and decent food but that’s the least I can expect from an 8 hour flight."
Cons: "Very old plane. Had the screens every 4-5 aisles. No control over the entertainment. Very uncomfortable seats, but so are almost every other airlines. The worst part about this flight was that I traveled with my girlfriend and when I went to check in, 24 hours before, there were only single seats left and there were so many open seats together that were considered “preferred” and had to pay $80 for just one “preferred” seat just so we can sit together on an 8 hour long flight. The seat didn’t even have any extra legroom or anything, it was a normal seat. American Airlines is just trying to squeeze money out of anything they can."
Pros: "Crew made the best of a bad situation: originally planned plane with sold-out seats replaced by a smaller one -- BAD! Extra kudos for crew for creative swapping to move me to an emergency row seat when I discovered that my **extra-charge** aisle seat was damaged and unusable. Food & beverage service -- adequate, timely (though some nutrition concerns.) Good, current entertainment selections."
Cons: "The obvious -- the switch to a smaller plane, causing some passengers great distress; not realizing that a sold seat was damaged; selling me that damaged seat, and at a premium. Food nutrition -- tasty, but carb-heavy, fatty and salty. Bathrooms -- became rather smelly and unkempt toward last 1/4th of 9+ hour flight."
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Seats were very small and very tight bags did not stow under seats like usual"
Cons: "Either Webjet or BritishAir failed to notify our party in advance to allow a reasonable accommodation of our fully paid requirements."
Pros: "I really liked the seats. Very comfortable especially how far they reckoned and the height of the backrest was perfect for a petite person like myself. Usually they are too tall and the headrest forces my head down. Also amazing selection of movies! Wow, thank you."
Pros: "The flight crew was excellent!"
Cons: "Seating extremely tight"
Pros: "Huge clean plane"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Pros: "Good TV's. Great service. Good food."
Cons: "It was long"
Pros: "I truly enjoyed the flight attendants, the flight overall and the great price I got."
Cons: "The seats are slightly uncomfortable to sleep in, but that's normal."
Pros: "It was just great"
Cons: "At the terminal , they were not helpful."
Pros: "Everythung was on time."
Cons: "The seats are much closer together ... so challenging for a 6' 2" male"
Pros: "Reasonably large leg room and overhead"
Cons: "Five times they tried to get us to pay for a seat assignment (even after they had assigned seats). Paying $32 for "priority" boarding is rediculous?"
Pros: "Good flight. No wait for the luggage,it was deplaned before we reached the claim area."
Cons: "Check in was a little confusing. The line for security was extremely long. After it was a breeze."
Cons: "Seats are not designed for long haul flights"
Pros: "We landed early, it was fairly comfortable in coach for a very tall person, and there was good communication from the flight attendants and pilot with the passengers. A very pleasant experience overall, from someone who is a nervous flyer!"
Pros: "Everything was great. Easy boarding great comfortable seating and friendly efficient stewardship"
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable. There was no leg room and 122 of the space below the seat in front of me was taken up by a metal box attached to the seat. I couldn't put both feet under the seat in front of me. The food was bad tasting and overly processed. We were fed a lean cuisine. The entertainment was from mounted tv's in the aisle. At this point, all planes crossing the ocean should have individual tvs for a customer to watch. They had this 15 years ago, how do they not have it now."
Cons: "Small seats, no wifi, no chargers, terrible entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was generally happy and friendly."
Cons: "No video on a transcontinental 767?? Are you kidding? Stupid excuse for being 2hrs late due to mechanical. They blamed it on something completely foreseeable and plannable. This plane is older than the plan I took my first flight on as a kid in 1984. I thought united was bad but then I experienced American. At least the crew were not jerks."
Pros: "The staff were fine and boarding went relatively smoothly."
Cons: "The plane was dated and small. There were no individual screens for entertainment. I've flown internationally with American before and felt this specific experience was worse."
Pros: "The cabin crew were absolutely outstanding."
Cons: "Seat spacing for international flight"
Cons: "super slow touchscreen response. menu of entertainment difficult to navigate and unimpressive content"
Pros: "We arrived on time."
Cons: "I booked with British Airways and later noticed the plane was operated for American Airlines. The seats were cramped and the online entertainment was terrible. On an overseas flight, I expect in 2017 that there will be on-screen entertainment on the back of the seat in front of me. Instead, the movie was projected on a screen in the middle seats on an overhead that was about 10 rows away. Plus, you didn't get to pick your movie. You were stuck with the selections provided by the airline. I would have brought along my DVD player or laptop had I know this was going to happen. American flight crews are not as friendly and accommodating as European flight crews, which is why I try not to select an American carrier. Seats are less comfortable on American carriers also."
Pros: "Not much to like, plus we were late"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, no in-seat or personalized entertainment."
Pros: "Take off and landing was incredibly smooth, along with the 8 hour flight from NYC to Rome, Italy. Perhaps the best flight I've ever had."
Cons: "The food wasn't all that good but I didn't have high expectations."
Pros: "They finally got us there."
Cons: "The airplane broke on the ramp and they made is sit in the airplane while the tempeture rose to about 100 degrees. I think someone was about to pass out before they realized they had to get us off. Then we were over 4 hours late departing while they were getting another plane"
Pros: "There were empty seats close to me, so that was great. The food was pretty good and it was nice that the wine was free."
Cons: "The screen on the back of the seat in front of me did not work well at all so it was difficult to watch movies. (I had to press multiple times to change the screen from one display to another.)"
Cons: "There was no wifi and no screen on the seat. I could not see the screen for the movie. Airline was old and also it took 2 hours to get going because they had to check the engine."
Pros: "The quality of aircraft"
Cons: "The service lacked any sort of empathy. The crew on this flight especially the African American lady, I think are in the wrong profession. Didn't care at all. Seemed miserable."
Pros: "Efficient boarding. Plane clean. Seats lean back far but that being said the individual in front of you ends up in your lap."
Cons: "As night went on a couple of the flight attendants in the premium cabin seats with standard legroom appeared grumpy and short with patrons. No gluten free options. In flight entertainment and reading lights not working for my dad or I. A long flight for that to be out."
Cons: "I paid $150 extra for 2 exit row seats thinking we could use the extra room on the long flight. Unfortunately, the exit row space was cut off by and smaller than a normal row! Our legs were extremely cramped by the time we got to Rome. We had no overhead storage, which was already small, so we had to put our carry-ons multiple rows behind us -- which made exiting the plane a pain. There wasn't any personal entertainment systems, just one tv per section. The food was sub par. The crew was nice enough, but I'll NEVER take American Airlines internationally again."
Pros: "There were too many gate changes ."
Pros: "The flight are crew were amazing though! Food was surprisingly good as well."
Cons: "The entertainment was kind of bad compared to other international flights I went on. You weren't really able to watch what you wanted and it wasn't the best experience."
Cons: "We were in the very last row so they ran out of food options."
Cons: "I purchased a “first class”seat when the door close I switch from my seat to the front seat to put more distance with others passengers since I’m a transplant paciente. The rude flight attendant told me in a very bad tone to go back to my seat that I couldn’t seat in there . Only to see later that she put her coat in there. I got up later to go to the bathroom , also I have overreacted bladder and she told me in same rude talk go back to my seat that if I couldn’t see that the do not get up signs were on. I felt literally she yelled at me . Never asked me if I needed help , or just wait a little . I literally pee in my pants"
Cons: "Flight turned around after 2 hours, we were delayed 7.5 hours and missed an entire day in Rome. Instead of landing at 8 AM, we landed closer to 4 PM."
Cons: "This flight was booked as a Lufthansa flight, but the actual flight was United. It was OK, but not the service or comfort when I flew Lufthansa in the past."
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Entertainment system did not navigate. Food was too salty. Crew was not very pleasant-annoyed when I was in the bathroom and missed service."
Pros: "Flight attendants were pleasant. Bathrooms remained clean the entire flight."
Cons: "Food was horrible. Ran out of croissants in the morning."
Cons: "The changes of time and gates were disturbing."
Cons: "All our chosen seats were disregarded the entire way from Munich back to Raleigh because the airline was switched to United. My family was separated on all flights, even though we chose seats over a month in advance."
Pros: "Amazing service, great crew. love was our stewardess and she took good care and watched over my daughter."
Cons: "Not much, truly an amazing experience"
Cons: "Again, left stranded in SC."
Pros: "Crew were great, especially considering we had a couple of mishaps travelling with a five year old and five month old. Despite being a mega long flight it was comfortable and we were well looked after."
Cons: "Seats are a little narrow on the exit rows and bulkhead as the armrests accommodate the TV and tables. This also means they can’t be moved. Not unique to Air NZ though."
Cons: "Plane had mechanical problems for an hour"
Pros: "The flight was very smooth, even the landing and take off. Cudos to the pilots. Liked that we were given a pillow and blanket (FREE). The food was good and the crew was pleasant. I loved that we had FREE movies and TV programs to watch with FREE earphones."
Cons: "The seating is AWFUL for economy section. For this reason I will never take a flight over 2 hours again. A nine hour flight is sheer torture!!!! Plus I was freezing the whole time, even with a jacket with a hood, two blankets, two pillows. Just a horrible situation."
Pros: "Drastically better"
Pros: "On time, good food service, free wine, and nice stewardesses"
Cons: "Still hate sleeping in seats. Maybe, one day I can do first class!"
Pros: "Staff was friendly, courteous, and generally concerned with our well-being."
Cons: "Economy seats were not terribly comfortable, but that is not unusual."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful."
Cons: "Delays are so very common on United."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by five hours due to a mechanical problem with the plane. Little information was provided by United. Frustrating experience."
Pros: "The stewards were nice. The entertainment package was good. Food was ok (coach)"
Cons: "6 1/2 hour delay due to navigation system crash. Two gate changes and a terminal change. New seats assigned, but then when 3rd plane was brought in, it had the exact configuration of the first and we were told we should use the original boarding passes. These turned out to be wrong because they reseated after the first plane went down and it’s replacement wasn’t the same configuration. We never saw that plane, or the gate it was assigned to. When we went to rebound, my wife I am were separated. We were moved to the way back (screaming baby sandwich - one in front and one behind us). Then we spent an hour in the worst turbulence I’ve seen in 20 years - I nearly vomited. the last 6 hours of this 15 hour ordeal were fine."
Pros: "Everything went as planned. Professional friendly crew with good rapport! Cabin felt spacious and seats were just right. The food and entertainment packages were quality, appropriate and functioning. The crew put us on a strict schedule allowing us time to sleep and refresh. Toiletries clean and no lines. Just an overall lovely flight!"
Pros: "Best flight to Italy from the states for me in 4 visits over 18 year span. Very efficient and courteous attendants, above average food ( for airline food), complimentary wine, even the seating was not as cramped as I have endured ( on NW Airlines- worst flight experience ever in 2005.)"
Cons: "I have not one complaint"
Pros: "THEY WERE VERY CAUTIOUS ABOUT LEAVING ON TIME"
Cons: "coshared flight UA and AC always have issues with printing boarding passes and online check in"
Pros: "The crew were friendly and served well"
Cons: "The plane was old and the seats small. There were many 'plus' seats open but the airline did not open them up to the economy cabin - which was full. It was a shame, they could have made the flight a much better experience moving people up and creating space in the back cabin."
Cons: "Taxied for 45 minutes, got on runway then determined we were low on fuel. Back to gate, refuel, two hour delay"
Cons: "No snack"
Pros: "liked that the plane was small; relatively comfortable and a direct flight."
Pros: "Love it"
Pros: "I liked a straight nonstop flight. Clean and comfortable."
Cons: ""Free WiFi, not free.""
Cons: "the boarding process is horrible and feels rude. The design of the united gates is horrible, the long lines block others walking by. The lack of enough overhead space for carryon's is obnoxious. Overall very disappointing."
Cons: "Overhead light did not work properly."
Pros: "Business clas worth the money for this long trip"
Cons: "all was okay"
Cons: "Cramped. Freezing on flight"
Cons: "Somewhat condescending comment from one of the flight attendants when I asked if they had a blanket. She said oh no, we haven't had them for ten years! I wanted to say -- must be just on the larger flights then- as I had just gotten off a United flight from Honolulu to Chicago where there weee plenty of blankets. I just smiled and said ok."
Pros: "Boarded quickly and on time!"
Cons: "Tried to book legroom online and by phone but told it was all sold out; only to arrive and find out it wasn't and had to pay $40 more."
Cons: "Attitude of gate agent, crews. Boarding penalizes all but highest level and they've demoted me since the merger and erased my 30 year history with UAL. Watched them mishandle a paraplegic passenger until another passenger swapped seats. Last choice for me."
Cons: "Seat was inoperable and frozen in upright position in business class cabin. Last to order entree had only 2 of 7 choices remaining and fish was extremely unappetizing presentation."
Pros: "Food was very good, almost restaurant-level. Wine selection was good as well"
Cons: "While on the plane at the gate, had to wait 20 mins for someone to hang my jacket (had to ask and the person came back 5 mins later) despite the fact that the attendant immediately checked on the guy next to me when he sat down, who apparently had status with United (attendant ignored me). I guess a $7,000 fare doesn't warrant special attention. I had to ask the same attendant for other items at times, but he'd forget and I'd have to ask someone else. Also, the seats were decent yet a bit crowded IMHO. I'm 5'10" and my feet were crammed up against the front of the space when fully reclined. The width of the seat area was a bit tight as well. Finally, they have 2 heads (toilets) that serve both the business class section ( maybe 50 people) as well as the front of economy. One of the pilots was waiting at the same time as me and agreed that it was a pretty questionable layout for the number of seats covered. All in all, not my favorite airline and nothing on this trip so far changed that view."
Pros: "It was a short flight and everything went fine after our initial delay."
Cons: "We were never notified of the gate change and had to stand by a monitor for updates"
Pros: "I liked the cleanliness. The use of wifi was great."
Cons: "Didn't like that there was no tv access"
Pros: "All of our flights left on time & arrived early. We had wonderful flight attendants as well."
Cons: "Arriving in Chicago we had to wait to dock the plane and were not able to get up and use the restroom."
Pros: "Honestly I just tried to sleep."
Cons: "What got me was the 2ND flight where a very large lady who pulled out three different seat belt extenders out of her purse was sat next to me. I could serious feel her sweat on my leg the whole ride. If a seat belt extender is need then she should have had to buy two seats."
Pros: "All fly is in good plan"
Pros: "Good entertainment for a long flight."
Cons: "A power jack could come handing."
Cons: "Unreliability of airline service, 7-hour delay! Food is horrible."
Pros: "Getting to Rome on time"
Pros: "Great flight"
Pros: "More luggage storage (overhead and under the seats) on this international flight than on domestic. Most everything else was as expected."
Cons: "The toilets smelled and were messy a few hours into it. (I was on a Korean Airlines flight recently and their toilets were always clean and nice!). The crew were mostly efficient and worked well together BUT only one (out of the 4 or 5 in our section) smiled at passengers and looked like she was actually enjoying her job. One blanket wasn't cleaned well enough."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic ! My daughter was anxious during some unexpected turbulence and she was very supportive . Movies and entertainment were good . Food , acceptable."
Cons: "The space allotted per person is ridiculous. And I upgraded to extra leg room ... What extra legroom ??"
Pros: "Crew was courteous and professional. Kept us informed as to why we were delayed."
Cons: "The 6 hr maintenance delay. Food could have been better."
