Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Kudos to the employees who really tried to help rather than pay mere lip service."
Cons: "The plane experienced a mechanical issue forcing us to return to the gate after waiting for an hour. The staff was clearly overwhelmed and focused on moving us along (Cheryl) rather than resolving our need to reach our destinations.it wasn’t until we found one extremely patient and persistent employee (LaShondra-?) who booked us through NYC rather than Atlanta so we reached Rochester on the same day. So the questions are- why don’t the airport hold a larger inventory of parts, why aren’t there back up planes and why doesn’t the software better cope with these types of situations?"
Pros: "Pretty much everything"
Cons: "Food somewhat expensive..... boarding off the plane - ones with no baggage should get off first then more control about everybody getting in the aisles trying to get their luggage and holding everybody up"

Pros: "Boarded quickly and on time."
Cons: "After boarding everyone they made us wait for another plane to arrive to take passengers on our flight to Syracuse since we had many empty seats. The wait was way too long and completely unnecessary. Not only did they keep everyone on the plane for a long time but they made us very late."

Pros: "We got to change seats because flight wasn't full!"
Cons: "Delays and not enough seats in gate area"
Pros: "I could have flown United direct for about the same price - but chose to fly Delta via Atlanta because, well, it's DELTA. Delta's first class is really first class - it's more than just a bigger seat .... the staff from the counter to the cabin crew all treat you like you're a valued first class customer. The experience of flying today is mostly like being shoved into a subway train in Japan with no genuine gratitude for my patronage. Not with Delta - they really do go above and beyond and it is not lost on me."
Pros: "Same as previous flight."
Cons: "seats were crowded"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient and the crew were nice."
Cons: "the seating is horrible. it was the tightest seating I've ever experienced."

Cons: "Boarding was crazy. Could not everyone in the gate area."
Pros: "Reasonable space in economy class seats"

Cons: "Bigger seats."

Cons: "Dozens of high school students screaming and climbing onto seats, crew did not intervene."
Cons: "I bought tickets thrue you for me two months ago Iit went well but on the last few days I also bought ticked for my brother and his wife and it was a disaster night mare for them bound for Montpellier too to attend a wedding the damn suitcase didn’t get to final destination it was at Orlando but got"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Security check at gate; No priority"
Pros: "Time was excellent even considering a connection delay they had. Very polite crew members. Good entertainment options."
Cons: "Cabin was crowded. Leg room was scarce, short seating space. Almost no room for sleeping if you're not a frequent economy traveler."
Pros: "Once aboard the plane, all went well and I experienced excellent service from the cabin attendants."
Cons: "The flight was delayed (again!) for some 40 minutes and I was worried that I would miss my connection flight in Atlanata. Fortunately the pilot made up for the delay (probably costing the airline thousands in fuel). It seems these days that every KLM flight I take is delayed. This stretch goes back to 2015! Yet KLM prides itself as being punctual. Not the KLM that I have been flying!"
Pros: "Gaps between seats are very narrow."
Cons: "when serving drinks, cabin crew limited to serve liquor only once and it was poor service."
Pros: "Last year I flew Lufthansa which was my worst experience flying ever. I thought the new standard was so low I would never fly to Europe again. I had heard KLM was good but I felt this was as good as could be expected actually much better. The food was even good."
Cons: "I would have to dream something up."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Leg room"
Cons: "Our lougage did not arrive"

Cons: "Nothing to say"
Pros: "Nice flight ...was comfortable travel ...good food.Thanks"
Cons: "No such things"

Cons: "No complaints about anything."
Pros: "Food was excellent, service from staff was friendly, and entertainment options were great."
Cons: "Not a lot of shoulder room being in the middle seat. But it had adjustments options for a lot of other things which were good."

Pros: "Everything excellent. Comfortable seats in business."
Pros: "Food was excellent, frequent and filling"
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable compared to my prior leg of the journey. Unfortunately the bathrooms were not clean, I understand that it's not the sole responsibility of the crew and passengers need to be mindful too."
Pros: "Friendly attendants. Decent food, and frequent snacks and beverages."
Cons: "No charging ports for electronic devices."
Cons: "Delay can occur sometimes but it wiuld be better to be explained its reason and the estimated time for boarding. The customer service at CDG airport was the worst ever and all people standing boarding desk were useless without any mind what they are doing."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Excellent very good"
Cons: "Everting so good ex"
Pros: "The staff are the best European crews I have encountered. Naturally friendly, professional and fit looking. Nothing is too much trouble"
Pros: "Very friendly service!"
Pros: "The food service was good and the flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "The plane was very uncomfortable. The seats were small, you felt on top of the person next to you, and there was no leg room. I am a pretty small person- I can't image how uncomfortable all of the taller passengers must have been."
Pros: "newer plane, good staff"
Cons: "need better and more food options, more often"
Pros: "Loved the service...everything was excellent"
Cons: "The bus class seat was a bit narrow at the feet"
Pros: "Crew was friendly..business class seat was very comfortable and seemed wider than most Nice power outlets great entertainment system"
Cons: "Row 6 in business is after the first 5 rows and Galley and restroom. Very awkward"
Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Cons: "They didn’t let us board the plane. Allegedly the plane was changed and make us travel by train!! They offered us a compensation but we haven’t heard from them yet. Not good experience at all."
Pros: "Good and plenty of food available."
Cons: "No power to charge phones, laptops, etc and no WiFi available. For such a long trip (10 hours) below industry standard."
Cons: "The crew on the Lagos Amsterdam route (in economy) are particularly unfriendly and brusque. This is my experience each time i fly this route in economy"
Pros: "Except for my negative comment, a good flight."
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat, but due to the poor alignment of the seats with the actual windows, I actually sat next to a wall! Nol much to see out of a wall. If KLM are going to charge extra for a window seat, then they should make sure there is a window there! If the seat had actually had a window it would have been an excellent flight."
Pros: "Having exit aisle made a huge difference in comfort Crew were EXCELLENT"
Cons: "Food was not very good Tasteless and rubbery"
Cons: "Because of slow boarding process flight was delayed by 15 minutes. I had short connection in Amsterdam."
Pros: "The flight crew were kind, polite, and attentive."
Cons: "Bussing to the plane was a bit odd, but the crew remained organized in doing so. When we arrived to the plane, they had both entrances open so that those sitting near the rear of the plane would enter from the back. Plane was a little chilly, but I have come to expect that one most flights."
Pros: "Almost missed flight due to line at customs and having to pick up suitcase and check in again, they did wait for me though"
Pros: "In general, it was ok"
Cons: "Yet again it was flight delay from KLM side."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and willing to assist with everything."
Cons: "No delays"
Pros: "Crew good, plane clean."
Cons: "Seats very cramped."
Pros: "Speed boarding and organized overall. Nice crew."
Pros: "LCY very efficient baggage drop, flight arrived ahead of schedule"
Pros: "Attentive service by flight attendants"
Pros: "Crew was also nice."
Cons: "I had to wait for bus to get the continue flight. The time waiting was so long I could not board the flight and had to rebook to the next possible flight."
Cons: "Was surprised that you have to pay for all drinks. They want 2.50 for a baby can of coke."
Pros: "Great personal service from the stewardesses. Excellent food. Plenty of drinks! Even good olive oil."
Pros: "Flight itself was very smooth, especially the landing. Food was good also, both the chicken and pasta were prepared well. Pasta could have used a little more sauce. Quantities and variety were also good."
Cons: "I still don't understand why airlines don't board from the back to the front. Would make the entire process go much smoother. The bigger the plane the bigger the problem and delay. I don't mind storing a bag under the seat but there's more stuff taking up legroom so it's hard to get the feet comfortable which is important for those longer flights."
Cons: "So out flight from Heathrow to Frankfurt arrived late at the Heathrow airport and, reportedly in a hurry to let us take off, they chose to inconvenience us further by not loading all our luggage. They said on the plane that, if we are missing our luggage, it will come in on the next flight. I don’t understand the logic of the decision to not load our luggage to try to save us time."
Cons: "Check in with British at LHR very bad and slow"
Cons: "Flight delayed by one hour Gate not announced as indicated on flight board When announced only gave about one half hour to make it to gate and board"
Cons: "Cancelled flight and horrible customer service!"
Cons: "Late like always no even a free drink of water sad sad"
Pros: "The boarding and crew was nice... no complaints."
Cons: "Did not realize that, at least, water was NOT complimentary ... food & drink had to be paid for. Bummer."
Pros: "The flight kept getting delayed, but made up during flight so I was able to catch my connection in Frankfurt. Very pleased about that."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 50 minutes and the gate was not available until 30 minutes of departure. Tap water, really?"
Pros: "Nice service. On time."
Cons: "Buses at each airport to get plane. Multiple waits in customs lines when travelling within Europe."
Cons: "We nearly missed the plane due to how closely our flights were scheduled. Then our luggage did not arrive with us our plane. We didnt have time to stop for a snack or water so a small something would have been helpful."
Pros: "The plane didnt crash. I liked that."
Cons: "It was Delayed and no one was notified. I was rushing through the endless mess that is London Heathrow only to find a delayed flight - which worked out for me. I just wish I had known. The flight itself was more than 2 hours and not even a complimentary soda? You have to pay for a coke? I've taken 45 minute flights to vegas that offered complimentary drinks and snacks. Pretty odd."
Pros: "Flight was over all comfortable."
Cons: "No snacks were provided."
Pros: "Very comfortable seating on a 747"
Cons: "It was all great!"
Pros: "Very rapid flight. Landed far before scheduled arrival(at least 25 minutes). Checked baggage was delivered before schedule arrival time. Crew was pleasant/helpful."
Cons: "Flight was changed from what was originally scheduled and purchased. I was informed of the change after the purchase before traveling. Thus I had 4 1/2 hours between flights."
Pros: "on time, easy flight, comfortable, fairly priced"
Pros: "The flight wasn't as late on arrival as I anticipated it would be."
Cons: "The ground staff were completely useless when it came to actually getting a new flight after missing my earlier flight when I showed up with only 20 minutes to spare and the ground crew left the gate before it actually closed. They then wanted to charge me 500 euros for a replacement flight, in the end Kayak online got me on the same flight for less than 100 euros. The rest of the flight was mediocre. Lufthansa and Virgin do so much of a better job with overall staff on the ground."
Cons: "At security London Heathrow, it took 30 minutes for them to check 1 bag of ours! Almost didn't make the flight."
Pros: "Very accommodating addentents. Was very impressed! Looking to fly with you all again soon! Thank you!"
Pros: "Not a very crowded flight. Boarding was efficient and we departed and arrived early. As the flight was short there was no meal service or entertainment."
Cons: "There were no power adapters in the seats."
Pros: "Everything was smooth. crew was courteous. Flight was plesant"
Cons: "The time it takes for a full 777 aircraft to empty is excessive. Airlines must think outside the box and view the experience from the customers' perspective to create two or more points of exit."
Cons: "bigger seats"
Cons: "I had connection flight from Edinburgh to Amman with 1 hour 20 minutes layover in heathrow we had delay around 2 hours in Edinburgh we arrived 20 min before LHR-AMM flight and we missed our flight"
Pros: "Services of New Delhi staff were much better than in Phoenix. No wheel chairs were made available even waiting for 40 minutes in LONDON. We faced a lot of hardships in London to go to departure terminal."
Cons: "Veg food was very poor quality. Snacks appeared to be stale ( may be month old) & very poor choice . Even crew did not listen despite calling several times . Iwill neither travel by BA NOR will I recommend it to anyone else."
Cons: "1 hour delay on return journey on a packed flight, but at least that delay was in the airport and not sitting on a plane"
Pros: "Fold-down head rests"
Cons: "No tuck box"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Seats not comfortable"
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly and helpful. My only complaint is the turbulence, but there's nothing hat can be done about that."
Pros: "There was something to like?"
Cons: "This was a four hour international flight from London to Istanbul. There was no in-flight entertainment system of any kind, not even audio, and there was no free food or drinks. Not even a bag of peanuts or a soda. Everything had to be paid for. And if you did wanted to purchase something, it took forever since passengers had to whip out a credit card. Cash not allowed. I have never been on an international flight that made you pay for food and drinks. When I inquired why, the reason given was that this was a "short-haul international flight". Oh, I see. British Airways is now a discount airline."
Cons: "We missed this flight due to Kayak's failure to get us on any other flights to Chicago after our original one was cancelled."
Cons: "Heathrow connecting gate announced only shortly before flight, thousands of connecting passengers kept in a central holding pen like cattle flight: have to pay even for a cup of water"
Cons: "So, the flight to Frankfurt never happened because of whatever happened with British Airways on 05/27/2017. We waited without information in the airport for over 6 hours and then were told to exit after which it took another 3 to 4 hours to get out of the airport. We were told to find a hotel with no help or voucher - nothing was showing available under $1000 a night, save our receipts for any food we might have, rebook our flight. As we were leaving the airport, we were given water, nothing before that. We received information as we were leaving the airport about our rights for recompense. Fortunately, a Heathrow staff member helped us with finding a hotel that cost about $400. We never were able to get to Frankfurt to see our family there and had to book train tickets to Paris to meet our hotel reservation there two days later. It was a bad situation, handled in a way that caused confusion, fear and unhealthy situations of standing for long periods and I will not be doing business with British Airways in future."
Pros: "Up and down in all the right places and we were on time."
Cons: "Food was unimpressive to say the least. And the entertainment system was awful, the movie would frequently stop and was pixilated. Weird for a new 777."
Pros: "There should be a special section for babies."
Cons: "Sitting on runway for 3 hrs and then get kicked off without good instruction. This was our 1st trip, so we felt stupid about everything after the flight was cancelled. Oh well. Much smarter now."
Cons: "I know that I shouldn't be shocked by the continued degradation of the airlines, but there should be a line. To me, a simple glass of water should not be too much to ask."
Pros: "The crew were quite friendly and very helpful"
Cons: "Flight was late leaving and check-in could have been more organized"
Pros: "quite nice and friendly staff. many vacant seats and thus much space to seat comfortable"
Cons: "old airplane, kind of run down impression. annoying and not really working touchscreen, lousy choice of movies. Everything had the air of not being organized, we had to change our seats twice without knowing, why. Really poor food compared to any other airline I know. One of the stewards constantly spilled drops of beverages over me, when he was pouring them for me and the passengers around."
Cons: "Delayed twice, switched gates, AND forced to gate check my carry on "because the plane was small" and supposedly they were having everyone check their bags. Except that didn't turn out to be true. Frustrating although baggage claim had bags waiting when we got through customs."
Pros: "The food was good and free."
Cons: "I bought a ticket from British airlines but the first leg of the trip was with Vueling. The online check in at British Airlines sent me to Vueling but I couldn't check in with British. We had to stand in line at Vueling to check our bags and then with British Airlines to get Get the boarding passes for the other two legs of our our trip. The bags didn't make the switch. British Airlines found our bags in 2 days but 5 days later that's a week later the web check of our file says bags ready for Delivery and call help line can not talk to the airport to find out the problem."
Pros: "I liked that we were on time getting to Phoenix."
Cons: "The plane was old and the video screen in my seat was not working properly. In economy there are way too many seats packed into a row for that long of flight. It was extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "The TV and Movie options were good. The food was good too. The staff was very attentive."
Cons: "My luggage was misplaced, but I got it delivered to my house by Wednesday evening."
Pros: "Food was okay. Fairly quick because they dont give options, everyone gets the same thing."
Cons: "Only 2 movies available."
Pros: "It wasn’t amazing. It did its job"
Cons: "Too many ch of a charter flight focused on tourist going home from a week on the beach"
Cons: "Treat passengers like they aren’t an imposition-dinner & breakfast were tossed at us, beverages weren’t available until long after dinner was finished, it took 15 min to get a response to the call button, then I was told I needed to get a drink myself from the galley."
Cons: "Would be nice to have access to WIFI for free to use communication apps like Whatsapp and Messenger, also a larger selection of free entertainment would be nice. I find it very disappointing that there is a fee to select a special meal such as vegan or kosher, the breakfast meal was also mediocre"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic, dependent on verbal cues being shouted by an employee without any amplification. Several families who had booked their tickets together were randomly assigned seats in the plane. You would think that group bookings would make an effort, especially when young children are involv"
Pros: "Not enough leg room for an international flight. Only a couple of the many flight attendants seemed very happy to help you or to even be there. As soon as the plane, the flight attendants started selling items and services ie: $11 codes to watch movies, cigarettes, etc. Cigarettes??"
Cons: "What happened to a complimentary drink with your meal, more than one kids movie as a choice for entertainment, friendly attendants and LEG ROOM? E"
Pros: "The crew provided enough drinking water."
Cons: "Very high baggage fee of $120 for a single suitcase Extra cost for watching films"
Cons: "small uncomfortable seat,poor air circulation. Could not book my checked bag through final destination, impossible to collect and recheck in time, lost the bag finally got it two days later. Condor needs to coordinate with other airlines for bag flow. Very unimpressed with Condor will avoid in the future."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient"
Cons: "Only two movies to choose from, and the crew sat with their feet up blocking the area to get to the bathroom while everyone was sleeping, I had to say excuse me for them to move so I could get by."
Pros: "The flight crew made the best of an inconvenient situation and seemed genuinely apologetic for what they clearly knew were exploitative policies."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed due to a mechanical issue, but instead of updating the schedule to reflect this, the airline had us standing indefinitely in the queue to board; this was probably about 45 minutes in which we could have sat down or grabbed some food, or literally done ANYTHING other than waiting as we did. Because of this delay, we were offered hard candies. In all honesty, I would have preferred to be offered water, which at €2.50 on an international, several hours long flight is borderline criminal. I have been skeptical about low-cost, "budget" airlines in the past, and this experience confirmed that if the price of the flight seems too good to be true, it probably is. The difference in cost was more than paid for by the hidden fees, the quality of service, and the denial of basic human dignities like not having your knees crushed against the seat in front of you, or God forbid--a cup of tap water."
Cons: "The distance between seats is so ridiculously small that I wonder how Condor can get away with that without getting sued. otherwise okay, but I won't recommend Condor to anybody unless they are extremely short."
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "Vegan food wasn't actually vegan (yogurt is not vegan) and quality and taste were poor. Broken overhead compartment. Limited space to move about. More movies in economy (seriously ridiculous not to provide more entertainment to all classes on an overseas flight)."
Cons: "Too cold in the plane."
Cons: "boarding delayed by about an hour without announcements! then move to the bus boarding area for another 20 min wait. finally dleay of take-off due to maintenance issue which was announced."
Pros: "Nothing no one was helpful I sat at that gate for 3 hours"
Cons: "Everything no screen near the gate telling you about the changes, I was tired from coming from the USA so wasn't walking around!!"
Pros: "I had never heard of Condor before this trip and as a regular traveler to Europe I was a little nervous. But everything was a breeze! Boarding was super easy, The overhead compartments were spacious enough for my overpacked suitcase and I got a whole row to myself! Will definitely be flying Condor again."
Cons: "I did get my regular altitude sickness so actually having a vomit bag would have been nice."
Cons: "we needed more leg room."
Pros: "Got Two seats to myself"
Cons: "Pay for movies and entertainment"
Cons: "I mailed the company before my flight to ask for a kosher meal and was told they don't offer kosher meals even if you're willing to pay an extra. They offer dozen of special meals, vegan, vegetarian, lactose free, gluten free, kids... you name it, but kosher isn't one of them. One of the crew member was kind enough to offer me fruits instead of a meal but a 10 hour trans-atlantic flight with no proper meal is extremely hard. Also they charge extra for a lot of things (3.5 euro for headphones). I wasn't satisfied and won't fly Condor in the future."
Cons: "Only 2 movies to watch, kids were bored after that"
Cons: "The crew did not give to me my dinner and my breakfast until I ask, deSpite they do it with all the passenger. With the breakfast one of the girl saw me without a food and she did not offer it me!"
Pros: "fight was on time."
Cons: "Only 1 free movie."
Pros: "Airplane in great shape, new, very clean. I am only 5'5" so, it's hard for me to judge on leg space but for my size, I felt very comfortable in economy class. The German crew was very friendly and efficiant. I was able to change my seat in the pre boarding area which was much appreciated and uncomplicated. They also offered to check in additional carry on items for no cost. On board crew members were amazing, friendly, efficient, vet pleasant experience overall."
Cons: "Service (regarding food, snacks and entertainment) was average. I really missed on board Wifi and internet which is on e of my Top priorities for long international flights. I did not even have a chance to look at the entertainment offers, just listened to music from their library which appeared to be well sized. Food (dinner and breakfast) were average, definitely can't keep up oth other major airlines. There was no "chicken/meat or pasta" option, they only served pasta with marinera sauce for everyone in economy class which was so so....., however, I personally don't judge Airlines on their food, I could not care less and I am not looking for fancy food. Service quality, friendiyness of the crew, safety, airplane statue and reliability are my main points and I definitely think Condor scored great in those categories. I saw there was an option to preorder food choices / wishes prior to departure. I wish they used recyclable dishes (e.g. Like Lufthansa) to minimize trash."
Pros: "Free alcoholic drink after dinner. Dinner and breakfast on board. Plenty of beverage services. Plenty of opportunities to get up and stretch."
Cons: "You only get 2 movies and 2 tv shows to choose from on inflight entertainment. 8€ for more. no thanks. I'll read my book."
Cons: "Almost 3 hour delay with no explanation"
Pros: "appreciated the attentiveness"
Cons: "More options for movies. Perhaps newer listings. Only two kids movies."
Pros: "Newer plane"
Cons: "Only four bathrooms at the rear of the plane for everyone except business class. They were never cleaned. The seats are cramped and narrow! Luftansa next time."
Pros: "On time arrival Free checked bag Luggage arrived fine Free meals were a surprise"
Cons: "Seats too narrow and too close to row in front for a 10 hour flight. Should make it clearer on website that meals are included. Everything I saw suggested they cost €15 and had to be preordered or pay even more."
Pros: "The crew was very nice , they were reign to do lots of things especially with the children to keep them happy"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats , We were traveling in business and the sear don't go all the way down so to slip alll the time , no kids food options ,my wife was eating ravioles and there was a piece of porcelain that was in the food She almost swallowed"
Pros: "One of the flight attendants treated me like a human."
Cons: "They over booked the flight and we were told we would have to miss our trip to Europe that we had planned for six months. They didn't communicate with us at all about what was happening until suddenly giving us two separated seats one minute before the cabin doors were shut. The flight attendants were disrespectful and demeaning to us, despite us having done nothing wrong. We ordered meals with dietary restrictions and those were ignored. In flight entertainment for the 10 hour flight was limited to two (old, terrible) movies and two TV shows. The seats were extremely uncomfortable and made it almost impossible to sleep. I will personally never fly Condor again and I would strongly suggest that you not either."
Pros: "Service was great"
Pros: "Price ,crew"
Cons: "Movies food only ok"
Pros: "Customer service was great. The flight was pleasant and inexpensive."
Cons: "If I had to say something negative, I would say I didn't like that much of the information was in German, although it was a German airline."
Cons: "One hour delay due to catering debacle. Food was terrible and the entertainment lacking. Plane outdated - no headrest TV. Bring your own entertainment!"
Cons: "I've never been on an Intl flight so crammed."
Pros: "I paid 200 for extra legs space....they could not give it to me...but they said I could pay 200 more fore a better seat...but they did not want to credit me the first 200....so finally Mt ticket cost me 400 more....it s a rip off..."
Cons: "The crew is really not friendly"
Cons: "flight from Africa to Moscow was delayed 14 hours . They did not email or all to give notification of this . I spent 1.5 hours in a taxi and $50 going to the airport only to find it was cancelled adn then go back paying another $50. Turned out the pilot was sick, and they didnt have a single pilot as backup . I also paid $95 for my extra bag and they did not check it all the way through moscow, so when i arrived in frankfurt where my connection was, I had to pay another $75 to Aeroflot because of this error. On top of it all they lost my baggage. I didnt get it for another entire day. Never flying them again."
Pros: "Thanks kayak for running updates!! Flights on time and crew friendly. Good meals!!!"
Pros: "The crew was above average. The food was good and mostly inluded in the ticket price."
Cons: "Legroom and overhead bin space was very limited. I felt very cramped. Very limited amount of complimentary entertainment, too."
Pros: "I had premium ,so everything excellent and food ,entertainment ,space I like Condor ,I always flying with Condor"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly!"
Cons: "The check in counter person gave me someone else's boarding pass. Good thing I had checked in online so I didn't have to wait in security line again. :(( The seats were so close together, people with long legs had trouble fitting in."
Cons: "When the plane broke and I missed a whole day with my husband that I haven't seen in 5 months"
Cons: "The seats were unbearable. I have flown an international flight before and it wasn't nearly as uncomfortable as this flight was. You people purposely make coach unbearable so that we pretty much have to suck it up and pay the extra money to fly in the better section where when I flew in Lufthansa it was comfy and I had no problems. I will NEVER fly with condor again after this trip. You are a pathetic excuse for an airline"
Cons: "You have to pay for entertainment on an 8 hour flight? This is ridiculous. Also, getting on and off the planes in Frankfurt take FOREVER, with a 15 minute bus ride in between the plane and the gate!? Also ridiculous."
Pros: "I recommend the upgrade to premium economy. Having the third seat free gave us more comfort. If you plan to sleep, or travel with children this is very helpful"
Cons: "We were delayed an hour before boarding. Also, the plane was quite warm. It was impossible to get enough change with the adjustments at hand."
Pros: "Food was rather boring, but a nice gesture. Paying for in flight entertainment was not expected. Crew was hospitable, but naggy at times."
Pros: "They put us in a decent hotel, Sheraton. We got put on Lufthansa, which is a far superior airline. The crew was awesome : )"
Cons: "Condor overbooked the flight by over 30 ppl. Told us we would be reimbursed and on a flight at 1500 the next day. The flight ended up being @ 1800 from a different airport - no refund, no vouchers or apology. It was impossible to get any information from Condor about updated flight itineraries. They told us to go back to booking agent but they were clearly the ones in control of any changes/ updates. I have lost close to 1000 dollars b/c of cancellation fees/ penalties for cars and hotels, food, pet sitter etc. - plus, two days of travel experience that can't be refunded."
Cons: "1) I have paid $60 (per person in a family of 3) for seat assignments hoping that this money buys us the "Premium economy" seats. The seat map indicated I was buying seats in the second row of the coach class. When we got on board, we found out that our row appears to be behind a large section of the "real" premium coach class seating which was not even shown to me when I bought tickets. So I have paid $180 on top of the ticket price just for the right to sit with my family, in a seat with little leg room. 2) It was very cold in parts of the passenger cabin throughout the flight. At the same time, the temperature in other parts of the cabin was comfortable. 3) The light on the ceiling didn"t switch off, and the crew had to tape a foil container above it. 4) The food (on transatlantic flight!) was... mediocre. I travel a lot and can compare. Drinks were Okay. I would recommend Condor's management to openly disclose the details about the seating fee to the passengers BEFORE the tickets are sold. I will not take Condor any more. Not worth it."
Pros: "Cost is less, efficient boarding. Having a direct flight from Mpls."
Cons: "Main cabin spaces are too small"
