Airline reviews

Pros: "The crew was amazing. Food was great. Clean bathrooms. Great entertainment."
Cons: "We had our passports and boarding passes checked five times in the course of 2 minutes by five different people one after the next. My cabin luggage was searched right before boarding. I appreciate the need for security, but that was excessive and unnecessary. In the peak of the Corona virus craze, the security made all passengers take off shoes and walk without any protection. This is not Qatar Airways doing - New York JFK security B S, but I am sure airways companies have some say to change it."

Pros: "The crew provide good service but personally i did not like the food that could be lot better."

Pros: "Everything.. will do it again!"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"

Pros: "Excellent food choices, multiple meals, very fast boarding process, comfortable seats that recline much more than US domestic flights"
Cons: "My movie was a bit dicey, but thankfully I wanted to sleep anyway"

Pros: "The crew was super amazing and went to all extent to make our journey with infant comfortable"

Pros: "Yes"

Pros: "Amenities like, Tooth Paste, Brush and Headphones."
Cons: "Liquor and Wines needs Varieties."

Pros: "The attendants were great."
Cons: "The food on all 4 flights was ok. Could have been more interesting recipes and dessert. The seats on all flights were consistently hard and stiff. It was impossible to get a decent rest because of that as well as the areas being pretty cramped."

Pros: "Great flight in-service was fantastic. I didn’t use the entertainment service because is the old movies."
Cons: "Please include Nigerian and Ghana movies"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "WC size (too small) and location. Other airlines such as Lufthansa (NYC - Munich) do way better job in this category ( I believe Lufthansa aircraft was either A330 or 340)"

Cons: "Many of the entertainment systems were broken."

Pros: "Crew was good and helpful. Food was good. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "They could have given me an other flight so that I could attend the wedding I was going for. I gotta flight after 12 hours and 10 hours lay-off in Doha. Even if I didn’t get that long layover, I could have been able to attend the wedding."

Pros: "Airlines' diligence in arranging an alternative flight in place of the missed connection because the initial departure from JFK was delayed due to technical reasons"
Cons: "Much ballyhooed A350-1000 has noisy engines rudely interrupting my enjoyment of the entertainment system - may be my seats were too close to the engines. The seats are not all that comfortable though perhaps wider than usual configuration in economy."

Pros: "Crew was not mean"
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable, entertainment screen had poor picture quality, eggs were black, stank + inedible, long bathroom lines , a child screamed most of the flight, no internet, couldn’t change phone, checked bags damaged - handles ripped off!!!"

Cons: "I get the safety thing with the window blinds but wish if it was 40 degrees outside they would let you close them until the plane takes off"

Pros: "While my Qatar airways flight from Houston to Doha (# 714) was almost perfect, flight #1335 from Doha to Nairobi was a huge disappointment."
Cons: "The flight attendants didn't seem to know what they were doing, food ran out before i got any breakfast, the IFE system for my seat didn't work,"

Cons: "Unfortunately, my baggage was lost on this flight, which will make it very difficult to climb Kilimanjaro!"

Cons: "Again had to wait for the flight for 8 hrs due to change in flight time with no explanation"

Pros: "Food is good"
Cons: "Economy seat"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Professional courteous friendly and communicative"

Pros: "If we had arrived on time everything would have been perfect. However I did not arrive in Johannesburg because a flight delay (even though our flight was set to let ontime) caused probably 40 people to miss their connections. To their credit, Qatar Airways did find accommodations for us and gave us food vouchers. Otherwise it'd be a zero rating."
Cons: "Boarding took far too long and caused us to be an hour late. Because of this, I am missing out on events scheduled in South Africa. This is very upsetting and it appears that Qatar Airways is too slow with boarding, there was no explanation given for why it took so incredibly long to board."

Cons: "It's been more than 50 hours and I still haven't received both of my checked in luggage"

Pros: "Quite journey"

Pros: "Okay"

Pros: "Services"
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "I didn't have much time on my layover, i would've expected the transfer to be better."

Pros: "Everyone on duty!!"

Cons: "Food options on both legs were terrible. On the first leg, only one of the three options was actually available. I understand that you have to account for varied decisions by customers, but only having one of the three listed options when you're just half way through the cabin is pretty weak. Disappointed that entertainment options hadn't changed from the previous month."

Pros: "I liked that it was empty and I could lie down."

Cons: "Ran out of meal options in both flights"

Pros: "Price and schedule"
Cons: "Food. Waiting place at Qatar airport. Arabian crew on board due to their non- friendly attitude."

Cons: "Layover in the middle of the night - no sleep! Also, crew kept waking us up for meals etc, versus letting us sleep."

Cons: "Made us check our carry on bag because it was too heavy and was told to get it from baggage claim on our connecting flight for it to never show up then waited in line for missing luggage for them to tell us they transferred it and would be waiting at the final destination"

Pros: "Everyone was very friendly and helpful. They were all multi-lingual and ready to help foreign travelers. The food was good. The plain wasn’t overstuffed with people - actually there were enough open seats that everyone could have a little extra space. Will always check Swiss Air first for international travel."

Pros: "Service was excelent puntualiti was excelente thank you very much"

Pros: "It was nice because plane was half empty so had quicker attention from stewards - everything was good."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "If I were a small person I would have been almost comfortable the seats were so narrow with no leg room so that trying to find a place for myself was laughable, unfortunately not the funny laughable. There is not a chance that I will ever again book an international flight on Swiss. I hope you share this with the airline."

Cons: "The headset outlet is still the old one, so you can't use your own ."

Pros: "It reminds me of school dinners"
Cons: "Bland, over cooked No thought into the presentation or flavour"

Pros: "Swiss has the most cheerful crews I've seen, and their enthusiasm is infectious which makes it easier to tolerate being cramped in a plane for hours. Also, I love that they give you a Swiss chocolate at the en of the flight."

Pros: "Entertainment"

Pros: "Selection of movies was good."
Cons: "The mushroom pasta they served was absolutely terrible."

Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Waiting in line in NYC for take off was about 50 minutes. Small seat space with annoying passengers who watch movies all night with bright screens or push and press my seat all the time.

Some were very friendly and polite."

Pros: "The steward was friendly"
Cons: "1) Assigned seat but was allowed to change seat 24 hours before online check in but at baggage drop off at airport, I was shocked that Swiss Air did not abide to our selected seats changed and gave us the initial seat assigned. 2) At airport check in, none of the ground crew able to gave us good explanation or assistance. 3) Enterainment has to reboot twice. Audio selection cannot be play. No USB port for charging phone."

Pros: "The flight was on schedule and landed early, and the pilot landed that plane very gently. It was quite impressive."
Cons: "I purchased a first class ticket in hopes that I would have a lot more comfort during the flight. It took me quite some time to get comfortable. The seat was ok, but I found the pillows to be very small and flat. I needed multiple pillows. The head rest was not adjustable, so I also found this to be uncomfortable. Usually when I fly AA, the headrest is adjustable. My final dislike was that the beverage selection was limited. I'm quite sure there was plenty of alcohol, but what about those customers who do not drink alcoholic beverages? I asked for hot chocolate, there was none. I asked for hot tea with honey, there wasn't any. So all in all my flight was okay, but that is solely because of the flight attendant and pilot. They did their jobs and they did an excellent job."

Pros: "Enjoy able"
Cons: "Noise"

Pros: "On my ticket it clearly indicate that I am entitled to 2 check in baggage. Delta completely refused to honor this. They said am only entitled 1 piece, and therefore I have to pay for the other luggage. I was forced to borough money from someone at the airport just so that I could board the flight."

Cons: "Strangely cold!"

Pros: "Plane was comfortable"
Cons: "In order to leave airport on time (plane came in late) they claimed overhead space was full and that remainder boarding passengers had to check their bags. (Bags to be picked up in baggage claim) When walked into plane saw plenty of overhead space for carryons!"

Pros: "The service"

Cons: "Poor boarding one hour late , security people yelling, 4 gate changes food so so. Will not use airline Again..."

Pros: "Everything was great. Service. Very comfortable. The staff was great"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "What I liked about my flight was the service was the plane was up and running."
Cons: "What I didn't understand or appreciate was that this flight was supposed to take off at 8pm, as it was already delayed, but the plane just sat on the tar mat until 11pm without any explanations from the crew, no announcements, and most disturbing: not even the offer of a drink of water for the passengers as we waited blindly."

Pros: "I really enjoyed having all of my concerns over delayed flights and possible missed connections rudely dismissed or outright ignored."
Cons: "Flight was over an hour late boarding and spent nearly 45 aboard the plane waiting to depart. No updates from the staff about our departure status or boarding status throughout the almost 2 hour delay. Got an email from Turkish airlines about this issue and they claim the flight was only 25 minutes late departing. Exaggerations occur sometimes when people are inconvenienced so I checked my call logs and social media accounts and found I completed multiple phone calls and status updates from New York over and hour after Turkish airlines tells me I left. One of us is lying and at this point I'm inclined to agree with facebook that I was still in JFK airport an hour after my flight was scheduled to leave when I updated my status to gripe about the delays."

Cons: "My bag did not make it to final destination & there was no excuse for it as there was enough time during layover AND I arrived to airport by required time before flight."

Pros: "The food was delicious."
Cons: "The wait times were ridiculous and always off schedule. From the beginning of the trio to the end of the trio there was consitency in going off schedule and being forced to stand in lines for hours. I would not fly Turkish again."

Pros: "Everything!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Best airlines"

Pros: "I didn't like what airline did to my mother-in-law was here arrive at JFK an hour before her flight left because another airline counter day or late day since she was a no-show when the plane is still sitting there and she was there an hour before the plane left I would never fly this airline and I will let everyone know that this is the most corrupt airline out there"
Cons: "I didn't like what airline did to my mother-in-law was here arrive at JFK an hour before her flight left because another airline counter day or late day since she was a no-show when the plane is still sitting there and she was there an hour before the plane left I would never fly this airline and I will let everyone know that this is the most corrupt airline out there"

Pros: "The entertainment part."
Cons: "It wasn't comfortable. They never give you a gate number in your ticket and I had to go and ask for it many times.No Internet, you had to pay to get access, why should I when you pay a lot of money for your ticket. Food choices sucked because they said sorry we only have one item from the menu...really? You are making me eat something that I don't want to eat.."

Pros: "My flight was delayed to begin with and then from turkey to islamabad the flight was diverted to karachi and due to unknow reason and i spent 12 hours at the airport without because the flight attendents reached their limit. Worst airline."

Pros: "Unnecessary delays, very rude and inconsiderate crew, both inflight and at the Istanbul Airport. They provided no accommodations for those that missed connections and had very poor organizations. Also, as a physician that was called to a medical emergency on the flight, I received not even a thanks. Also, they were very delayed in getting the medical supplies to us physicians and requires ID prior to opening the emergency kit which definitely delayed care!"

Cons: "Delays, inconsiderate crew, poorly managed medical situations, no hotel accommodations with prolonged flight delays, poor communication to passengers"

Pros: "This was easily the worst travel experience of my life. Kept waiting at the airport for 12 hours, then delayed 4 days. None of my hotel and food expenses were paid for -- for that you were required to return to the airport and wait in what were reportedly 7-hour lines. Then to top it all off, I was seated ahead of an exit row, where the seats don't recline. If I can avoid it, I will never fly Turkish Airlines again."

Cons: "Was horrible, I felt like I was sitting in a back seat of two door car with no space for 9 hours and no way out, I refuse to fly Turkish ever again pay the extra $500 to fly with Emirates it Qutar well worth it than this place, food was discusting they shouldn't be a air line PIA is better"

Cons: "Nothing, they tried hard to make sure everyone felt they were available to take care of what they needed and when they needed."

Cons: "The Soviet Union wants its airline back. This was perhaps the RUDEST airline experience I've ever experienced. I was at Frankfurt (FRA) airport waiting to board Air Moldova Flight 864 to Chisinau (KIV). Due to a delay caused by Frankfurt security (and no fault of my own), I was delayed in reaching the gate. Since it was past my boarding time, I grabbed my bags from the conveyor belt once past security without having time to repack. I arrived at the gate and the extremely rude Air Moldova gate agent on duty yelled at me and demanded that I give her my boarding pass. When I told her I needed to pack, she yelled that there was “no time for that”. When I searched for my pass, she again yelled and said “NOW!”. When I told her that it was not my fault that I arrived late since there was a delay at security, she said “Not my problem!”. After she checked my boarding pass, I tried to repack and she again yelled “There is no time. Go to the bus NOW!” I once again told her that it was not my fault I got delayed and she again yelled “NOT MY PROBLEM”. In addition to rude employees, the airline is clearly in violation of safety regulations. The safety card in the back seat pocket was written in ARMENIAN – and Armenian only, thanks to the plane having been leased and Air Moldova not appropriately changing the safety cards. How did they expect people who read Romanian or Russian (the local languages) or English to understand it! On top of that, the plane was easily 20 years old or more and dirty. If they can't even keep a plane clean or have the appropriate safety cards, what else are they not maintaining. Do not fly this terrible airline!"

Pros: "I like my trip - good service, good food (vine, whiskey :-) )"

Cons: "Great airline"

Cons: "Tight seating"

Pros: "Lufthansa is a great airline. My problem is Kayak, who sold the tickets to us."
Cons: "You, Kayak, sold me economy tickets. When I checked in online I saw it for the first time that our tickets were Economy Light. So even though we are Frequent Flyers, we payed $220 for three checkin luggages. I intend to dispute this case."

Pros: "Plane and service was excellent"

Pros: "Friendly staff!!!"
Cons: "All good!!"

Pros: "Review for Eurowings"

Pros: "The incrediblesmoothness of the flight: the lane to Frankfortwas a dream plane, and the pilots are to be congratulated."
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "The flight was smooth and the flight attendants were very polite and helpful. It was a great experience"
Cons: "The bathroom was a bit smelly"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Late noisy too many children slow boarding"

Cons: "Flight was delayed."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "1. There was no beverage service before the meal - that's new to me (travelled 4x around the globe, mostly with LH 2. It took 3 people to open the meal seal with the plastic knife ... 3. You need a written contact with your neighbor about the foot placement - space is so narrow, you need to take turns if you would like to come off the plane without back injuries 4. New custom: serve coffee AFTER breakfast 5. Nobody walked around with water or juice between the meals - you had to wake your neighbor since climbing over someone is no longer possible [either] 6. If you have 2 beverages on your tray and your neighbor needs to get out, you need a third person to assist (impossible to get out of your seat with 2 beverages in your hands (we tried it!) - just too narrow (even for a European Teenager) 7. It was not clearly visible who boards where. An Economy couple standing patiently in line at the Wong boarding line was sent back to the end of the long economy line - although NOBODY was in the business line"

Pros: "Flight on time and excellent service."
Cons: "Food was not great."

Pros: "Wasn’t Lufthansa, was Singapore Airline from Ny to Frankfurt.Was excellent definitely."

Pros: "I said everything in another evaluation"

Cons: "No room for my knees."

Pros: "Lufthansa airlines never fails to provide excellent service."

Pros: "Fight attendants' courtesy"

Pros: "Munich airport is great."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Mess in JFK airport"

Pros: "Efficiency and level of care, quality of food and drinks, not to mention the entertainment on Lufthansa Airlines!"
Cons: "Nothing to write here, whole experience was excellent!"

Pros: "service crew"

Cons: "Needed more option in sports. Specifically Cricket"

Pros: "Lufthansa is amazing!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The person behind me complaining when I put my seat back. I had to do the whole trip from ny to Egypt up straight. Both flights the people kept pushing on my seat and told me to put my seat up. I didn't want problems so I did."

Pros: "2 hours delayed in Munich"

Pros: "I bought the premium economy seats for extra room and I was not disappointed. The extra room was great. The in flight entertainment was very good as well. Lufthansa's food was excellent."
Cons: "The outer window pane had a lot of condensation on it and I could barely see out the window, and I love looking out the window during take-off and landing and I couldn't see much."

Pros: "Everybody was very courteous and tried to accommodate us and our baby!"

Pros: "I loved the ample number of bathrooms and their cleanliness. This was hugely important to me and would be reason enough to choose Lufthansa (and not Swiss Air) again. The families-first boarding made our flight much more pleasant than we'd expected. In all my travels, it's rare for me to have two pleasantly astounding experiences in the same flight. Thank you for your improvements of bathrooms, Lufthansa!"
Cons: "Other airlines have flight attendants who are a bit warmer and more responsive to children. That's one area where Swiss Air came out on top."

Pros: "Terrific staff, efficient process"
Cons: "Bathrooms weren't working"

Cons: "We never flew out !! We're still at the airport! Please help us! We have to be in Spain by Saturday"

Pros: "The stewards did their jobs well."
Cons: "Our departure was severely delayed due to airport and aircraft crew errors. This meant that I missed my connecting flight in Munich, had to endure an extended lay over, board an extra flight to Budapest and endure an even more unbearable lay over there before being able to reach my final destination in Athens. I paid for a one-stop flight and have ended up having to endure a two-stop flight with extended lay overs. I feel completely cheated out of my money and overall have had a terrible experience."

Pros: "Handling crew was great . Seat was comfortable!!! Meal was very good and tasty"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "J Lufthansa , this was my first flight with your airline and `i am glad to say that it was an excellent experience.\The crew was superb and the comfort of both the regular coach and coach comfort was excellent. `I would highly recommend you and will return as often as possible."

Pros: "All. Excellent experience."
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Everything was excellent except breakfast from joke to Fra"
Cons: "Breakfast one choice including ham which unrespect to Muslims"

Cons: "My son Adam is in Mekele Ethiopia having flown most of his journey with Lufthansa. For two days now, his luggage with his nebulizer and asthma medications has gone missing and not ONE person at Lufthansa is willing to help on their end. Since his last leg was with Ethiopian Airlines, Lufthansa is unwilling to help in any fashion or form in helping to track the luggage that flew with them over two flights. They DENY they have any responsibility to help because it's not their "policy." They wouldn't even look into their computers to see where the luggage was last seen. I am so angry that "policy" is more important to Lufthansa than actual human caring about their passengers."

Pros: "All went well. On time boarding n arrival. Smooth flight n landing"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "The staff at check in was very helpful!! Great service!"
Cons: "You need to pay $35 per seat to reserve."

Pros: "The crew was personable"
Cons: "Not enough recent television"

Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "Small leg space"
