Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Decent seats. Good amenities for a long flight - entertainment, pack with toothbrush/mask/earplugs/socks."
Pros: "The portion for LAX to Doha was fairly comfortable and crew was helpful.. they kept running out of meal options by the time they reached us mid flight .. Doha to Bengaluru portion was less classy— the TV/ remotes etc didn’t work well and overall service not as good .."
Cons: "I bought my seat assignment in advance, and they did not give me this seat on the plane. Before boarding, I asked at the gate if my new seat was a window--which is what I paid for--and they confirmed yes, my new seat was a window. Turns out, it was not, it was a middle seat. I asked a flight attendant to relocate me to a window seat, which she kindly did, however this seat was quite uncomfortable as I was seated next to a large gentleman who probably should have been required to purchase two seats. Overall, there were two issues with Qatar Airways during this trip: they did not give me the seat I had requested and paid for, and then lied when I asked if my new seat was a window."

Cons: "Qatar Airways... Never to expect more"

Cons: "I was seated between two overweight/obese passengers and as such was very uncomfortable throughout the long-haul flight.

Pros: "Departed n arrived on time"
Cons: "Small old plane crow were tired I think"

Pros: "Cabin crew was pleasant and at least smiled."
Cons: "Why was it necessary to have to queue to present your boarding pass to get into a sitting area only to have to queue again to actually board the plane?

Pros: "Good quality aircrafts"

Pros: "The staff was so accommodating and friendly! Great trip!"
Cons: "This was a very tight confection. When selling international connections the layover needs to allow enough time to exit the plane, cross a huge airport and go through passport control. Boarding starts early and this connection was barely enough time."
Pros: "Attendants were pleasant"
Cons: "We were delayed on the tarmac for an hour and a half"
Cons: "They misplaced my oversized luggage even after I paid the overpriced $100 fee (87 euro cash only) for a 2nd checked bag. It was not defined by weight or size, but a straight fee of $100 for any kind of extra bag"

Cons: "No major issue."

Pros: "787 seat spacing (a UA plane, not LH)"
Cons: "Took first available train , arr. Freising at 9:50. Arrived at Terminal 2 by bus ca. 10:25. I am handicapped and a slow walker, so I got to departure floor ca. `10:40. Waited in line at self-serve check-in; found out that it does not have ability to process numbers (for US address). Attendant was not helpful and nasty. She told me me to go to the regular check-in line, where I waited another 45 minutes. None of the 3 "help" personnel standing around when approached managed to tell me that there was a special counter for handicapped persons. The one at the express self-check-in refused to give me her lasst name or any form of ID (first name Sophia). After waiting an additional 15 minutes for a wheelchair, I was deposited in a waiting area, where a second wheelchair arrived after another long wait. Told me I might not make the plan (I did). Overall a very unpleasant and nasty experience. With the exception of the very nice lady (Mrs. Ilser?? ) who checked in my luggage, none of the other 3 persons at the express and regular check-in spoke decent German or English, and none was helpful (Go there, wait!!!) Barely made the plane in MUC, Heathrow turned out much better than the touted German efficiency. Please forward to Lufthansa customer relations. Dr. W. Hartwig"

Cons: "Third time the luggage do not com with me"
Cons: "It was long terrible 24 hr journey with a pregnant wife"
Pros: "On-time flights."
Cons: "Seems like Germans have perfected isolation of all passengers heading to the USA at the airport terminal. After passing 3 passport/boarding pass check points I attempted to buy some coffee in the shop near the gates. Again they demanded passport and boarding pass. I refused. I cannot resist a comment: "Welcome to modern-day Dachau experience!""
Pros: "very nice and attentive personel"
Cons: "Greek managers who hate Macedonian flyers. On purpose he took our carry-on bags for check-in when I said that I had things that can be broken inside. Both bags were bellow 8 kg and we ware family of 3. Our bags were approved by Luftansa on check-in an we have them as carry-on bags from SFO. Two precious trophies was broken because of this.

Pros: "Crew very helpful"

Cons: "More staff needed at security clearance"
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly. Getting to leave the plane."
Cons: "Seats were the smallest since I tried Ryan Air. Boarding is ridiculous process of elevators, buses, and salmon stand-offs as people board from the front & rear with no guidance. Arrival was also waiting on buses before a 15 minute ride to the far side of the airport. No food or beverage is offered free. Not a pleasant experience in any way."
Cons: "Could you refund me 50.00 as your price included bag price but when directed to book I had to add on bags for a further 50.00 and because of this they wouldn’t let me get on an earlier flight on my return firstname.lastname@example.org or 07799411994 for response"

Pros: "Plane left and landed on time."
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "No refreshments were offered."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "There was absolutely no room for me in the seat. It was very cramped. The planes from Dublin to Munich and Munich to London looked dated and shabby. There was no entertainment available. The food was mediocre to bad."
Cons: "Overpriced, bare basics airline trading on past glories. Utter dross."
Pros: "Seats were leather, plane was clean"
Cons: "Delayed over half and hour"
Pros: "Crew was young and energetic … FINALLY !!!"
Cons: "poor selection of food … and I was flying business."
Cons: "Unfortunately I am allergic to all the food they offered .I wish the served a plain chicken or plain turkey.Everything was spicy or mixed with a pesto or curry. They need to something that is served completely plain ."
Pros: "The crew were exceptionally nicer ery"
Cons: "Everything was pleasant"
Pros: "Flight crew"
Cons: "* LHR T3 departure - appalling terminal * Baggage checked in at BA desk but collected to one side because of baggage belt failure * Captain must have known that 2 containers had not been loaded * Arrival at MRS to eventually find that luggage had not travelled on the flight * Inept handling by ground service partner Avia Partner * Baggage re-flighted on following flight and arrived at MRS at 16:00 with Avia Partners only offering to deliver after 13:00 the following day * BA in-flight service badly let down by ground handling at LHR and MRS"
Pros: "The flight left relatively on time and arrived only ten minutes late. The crew were as friendly as they were totally unaccommodating."
Cons: "In coach, every refreshment costs money, even non-alcoholic beverages, yet all four of my (valid and working before and after) cards were declined, and like all airlines nowadays, they refuse cash. The flight attendant was totally unsurprised, and mentioned they'd been "working on fixing that for a while." Every other airline I've flown, when they can't process your card, they accept it as their issue and just give you the beverage. BA were quite happy to leave me sitting thirsty without even a water for the two hour flight, with nary a apology for their technical issue. A rather basic plane, without entertainment, nor internet."
Pros: "Staff was very nice."
Cons: "I feel it is very cheap of the airline to charge for all food and beverages during the flight. A small snack and complimentary water/soda/juice would have gone a long way."
Pros: "The crew always had a smile on their faces and the entertainment was also quite nice."
Cons: "I felt packed in line a sardine. For an 8 hour flight it was inhumane. The air conditioning wasn't working in my seat which added greatly to the discomfort."
Pros: "arrived safely and on time"
Cons: "Nothing was included. No snacks, not even pretzels or peanuts. No beverages unless you wanted to pay for it. No entertainment, such as music or TV shows (flight too short for movies.)"
Cons: "No drink for economy, short fly"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Very limited seat spacing we were very much jammed into the aircraft. Also, there was no service offered, I could not even get a cup of water"
Pros: "The crew and the cabin But why we can not get bording for all the trip?"
Pros: "Disability assist was good."
Cons: "Unable to use your cash on board. Having to use a card to buy something, like a drink, for £1.80"
Cons: "Very rough ride, made me sick"
Cons: "I tried to reserve my seat and do a 24 hr advance check-in - no luck. I was in the airport in Munich at 9am, could not get a boarding pass for the London-Boston leg and asked to have an isle seat reserved - no such luck!! I was squeezed in on a window seat in a row of 3. Try to get up when the 2 people in your row are deep asleep! I was disappointed that they did not honor my request, which was made online and supposedly held in the booking system. Heathrow is another story - terrible airport, no decent food. Oh, and BA even charges for water on the European flights. How low can you go?"
Pros: "Better seats and space"
Cons: "New M&S menu, makes service too slow and the items are mediocre."
Pros: "British Air was excellent, but there was poor connectivity between them and Kayak(webjet)which left me seeking information even at the last minute"
Cons: "Missed my connecting flight and experience was horrible"
Pros: "The flight arrived early"
Cons: "I bought my ticket through you and thanks to you my name was spelled wrong and I could not get my ticket. We called the company for hours but no one would help us. I had to buy a ticket that was double what I bought from you. I demand that I get a refund in full of $1300 and another $2700 to cover the ticket that I had to buy last minute. Email me at email@example.com about how we can go about doing this."
Pros: "The crew was great, food was very good, the entertainment system was awesome"
Pros: "We got beverages right away"
Cons: "No entertainment for the flight"
Cons: "There was supposed to be wheelchair assistance at Richmond upon our arrival. Waited as long as I could. When no one came with a chair or any assistance, I had to walk ! struggling! so as not to fall to the baggage claim area, claim my luggage without any help, and then to my get myself and my luggage outside to meet ground transportation."
Pros: "We appreciated the generous amounts of free red wine."
Cons: "We were not notified by email for checkin. When I went to the Lufthansa site as directed, the confirmation code didn’t work. I called Lufthansa, and it wasn’t easy to find the phone number. My confirmation code had changed and I was told I had to go to the United site. Why wasn’t I informed?"
Cons: "Was lied to concerning that 23kg of checked in luggage was included, turned out it was not."
Cons: "The staff at the United gate in Munich was rude and not helpful at all."
Cons: "Get seated in a seat i paid extra 37$ for .very disappointed"
Pros: "On time and great professional staff throughout"
Cons: "Wi-Fi, as usual, was not working. Plus, there were no screens in the seat, so passengers have to rely on their own smartphones/tablets/magazines/books to keep entertained."
Pros: "Lufthansa did a great job in their customer service, their movie selection to include their technology available to each customer."
Cons: "the Seat was uncomfortable after an 8-hour flight. I have taken many 14+ hour flights to distant locations so I was surprised how quickly their seats caused discomfort."
Pros: "Smooth flight!"
Cons: "Intercom kept having loud feedback problems - ouch! One hour on the tarmac before we could leave the plane."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Friendly crew."
Cons: "It turned out that we were on stand by (without anyone telling us until the morning of the flight) and did not know if we were going to fly out. We could not select any seats at check in and only found out our seats a few hours before the flight. It was quite unpleasant and stressful as my husband and I were flying with our two children and faced a real possibility of not being able to sit together or getting bumped off a flight all together. It was a code shared flight between Lufthansa and United and each airline kept sending us to the other to get any answers or help. neither were helpful. It made it for an extremely frustrating experience."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled."
Cons: "The flight was delayed then to top it off we sat on the tarmac awaiting to off load in DesMoines. We spent just as much time waiting to off load as we did in flight!"
Pros: "Unable to since they did not wait for several passengers."
Cons: "I was called the night before saying our flight was overbooked will you change flights for 300.00 dollars each. We needed to get home so we turned their offer down. The day of the flight our connection flight was delayed we were told someone would escort several of the passengers from Lufthansa to the connection with United no one was there. Several of us ran to where the flight gate was but the plane already left. It turns out other people were also called and turned down United’s offer. So the question is since our flight was purposely overbooked did United take advantage of our situation and just leave and cause all of us great pain and duress with no compensation for all of our inconvenience."
Pros: "It was good"
Cons: "On this particular flight for some reason the crew served food before drinks."
Pros: "New flight reservation took us directly from Newark to Phoenix."
Cons: "This flight was totally cancelled. New reservation took us to Newark. Here the crowds were very long, baggage took over 20 min. to arrive, missed our connecting flight and had to wait 4 more hours for next flight. The flight out of Newark was held on the tarmac for 40 min."
Cons: "Unprofessional rude United staff"
Cons: "Wait time for US specific security check Line was too long and slow"
Cons: "The boarding process."
Pros: "We got home safely."
Cons: "We couldn’t arrange seats in advance online; there was much confusion since it was a Lufthansa flight operated by United. There was no one from United to talk to at the Hamburg Airport, and multiple Lufthansa agents said they had no control over the United flights, and could not contact them either. We weren’t able to get food at the Munich airport because we had to go through a second passport control just before the gate, and there was no food. The automatic snack machine only took Euro coins and not bills or credit cards. Then the crew was a little snippy and unfriendly. Not a great experience overall."
Pros: "United flight more seat room than LH international flight. Crew much friendlier and more accommodating."
Cons: "NO ONE sent me the United check in info, so I did not have the flight number. I had to get help in Munich from Passport Control. LH flight from Koeln unfriendly LH crew."
Pros: "Early arrival to DSM."
Cons: "worst food ever internationally. And I've been to 43 countries. crackers as snack, only one meal on an 11 hr flight, ran out of fizzy water, for sandwich, I had to take off one layer of bread to taste the meat at all (thinest layer ever seen with only two dots of a pesto."
Pros: "Food was really good and I watched some great movies. I was happy to see that there is much more room on Int'l flights than domestic flights. The seats were comfy."
Cons: "I was pulled out of line when trying to board at the gate for not having a 'stamp' on my boarding pass which would tell them I went through security (even though I had gone through three levels of security!) I was sent back to a gate that had no idea what I was talking about and I became frantic, as my son was about to board a flight that I could not. I finally found what was needed (after being sent through the line and patted down this time!) and I ran back to the gate to be the last person on the plane. It was nerve wracking to say the least. Also my son's video touch screen was not working properly. I realize that it is hard to keep these operating well, with all the use they get, but it was annoying as this happened on the flight over as well."
Pros: "Very comfortable seats and seating arrangement. Lots of storage places. Ample water supplies."
Cons: "Would have preferred something other than chicken for pre-landing meal. Fruit, cheese & veggie option shown on menu was not available."
Pros: "Flexibility in changing reservation at the last minute. Excellent service on board, good food."
Pros: "The final sandwich was great."
Pros: "It was a great flight too!!!"
Pros: "The food was good."
Cons: "The seats were very tight, with a large person in the middle of our 3 seat array (2 of us on each side)."
Cons: "The movies were outdated mostly"
Pros: "Once we were on the flight everything was fine, but getting on the flight was stressful."
Cons: "The security checkpoints in the United wing were incredibly excessive. I'm not sure if this is a new process, but it was incredibly stressful. Just when you thought you were done, there was yet another line to stand in for yet another security check."
Pros: "Got me from point A to B"
Cons: "Cabin was freezing, very skimpy on drinks, coffee maker didn't work. Ask volunteers to move to back of plane to balance out weight."
Pros: "The food was tasty and I had nice movies to watch."
Cons: "Terrible position of the seat. In between bathrooms and crying kids when I had requested the exact opposite. Food was awful. I had a vegetarian meal."
Cons: "US Customs!!!! Inefficient and long!!"
Cons: "Confusion and lack of communication about the extra screening process in the airport right before boarding. No information provided ahead of time, to alert me to arrive at the boarding gate early for the extra screening. After I passed through the extra security screening at the gate in Munich, and then went to the counter to complete the extra passport check and security questions, I was asked to step aside and wait. No one told me why. I had to insist on an explanation to the airline staff, and realized there was a mistake - they thought I had not gone through the extra security screening before going to the passport check counter, but I had. This created extra stress and delay for me, as this took place when boarding had started. Respectfully, I suggest that staff is more communicative."
Cons: "The boarding process was unnecessarily complicated by United Airlines. I was made to wait right until take off time without any information while they "confirmed my visa" on which I entered the US multiple times in the past."
Cons: "can't believe you still have those low quality touch screens. they are very non-touch sensitive, and don't respond well to attempted touch commands."
Cons: "Munich - Houston overnight flight. No breakfast. No good."
Pros: "People of Lufthansa and the clients who were flying with me."
Pros: "Very efficient personnel. Clean plane, nice big bathroom."
Cons: "I politely asked the attendant if they might have coconut or almond milk and felt like I was laughed at."
Cons: "bad business class experience, requested assistance 2 but only one came that alsoafter so much hassel will never travel or recommend"
Cons: "I was traveled no with my wife and my son to Des Moines andI documented our 3 bags in Mexico City and "the first surprise" was that they charged in Mexico n I he front desk about $27 USD per bag...it seemed that the bags were also passengers and " needed to pay"... The big other surprise was when we got to Des Moines and realized all the bags were opened!...my wife's jewelry was stolen!!!! UNITED AIRLINES SUCK!!!!!"
Cons: "The plane was delayed again n again from ，7:30 pm to 11:45pm"
Cons: "The air hostess mentioned a workaround/ compensation, which was not provided."
Pros: "due to the holiday, the plane was not crowded!"
