Lost 2 check in bags at chicago, no customer service at all. Playing phone tags. Missing critical medications
Overbooked flight. My wife and I got split up. I have a replaced disk in my neck (kids behind me constantly kickin my seat) made for a painful and unpleasant flight. (Staff did nothing to prevent this)

Cons: "Lack of communication. Flight was two hours late from Boston to Doha. Not once were we told about the length of delay or what we need to do about connecting flights. And toilets were very smelly right from the start as it seemed that itinerary has seeped into the floor over time. And there were only two items as a main course and one of them in very small quantity. I was told that too many veg main courses were loaded by mistake and very few non veg."

Pros: "Another B787. Had empty seats next to me."

Pros: "leaving airport"
Cons: "24H delay, no meals, no coordination, no communication."
Cons: "More leg space"
Despite some technical problems all the crew were really great and managed the issues really well. Thank you
Virgin flight attendants are the nicest/friendliest of all the airlines! Always prefer Virgin if there is a choice!
Flight crew was excellent. Seating in the economy class was, well, economy.
There was a lot of delay in getting a wheel chair. Single person doing for multiple people at Heathrow airport. Since you know in advance how many need wheel chair assistance, it would have been better if more wheel chairs and persons were available. Had to wait for almost an hour after landing after a 10:30 HR flight. The economy classic leg room was so bad, that it is very difficult for senior citizens to getup from seat, if the front seat passenger is reclining. The cabin crew were very very helpful in providing the special assistance. But for them the flight would have been very difficult.
It was far too cold. Had to wear my coat and use the blanket. Very unpleasant.
Clean and comfortable short flight. Arrived on time.
Had a brillant flight from LAX and the lady that check us in at LAX on the vs6848 flight to Manchester was outstanding ! And deserves recognition! She was patient with when we were paniced about us been late and havibg five chikdren under five...she kept us clam... reassured us and booked our bags..ensure my elderly mother had assistance and also waited for my husband who had gone to the toilet and jad got himself lost in the airport. We made it to the plan on time... please fjnd that lady as I really want her to be recognized The plane was of high standard and we got the seats thats worked well with our large family My email is email@example.com if you need more information.
Pros: "Crew was excellent - friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Seats in economy too cramped - I paid extra for next seat up from basic economy which covered our baggage but, for some reason, not seats with more leg room."
Pros: "Amazing !"
Cons: "Nothing all good really"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The screen"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable, good movies, etc"
Pros: "Although there were delays they kept us informed on a regular basis as to what to expect and seemed genuinely apologetic for any inconveniences. Boarding and deplaning were smooth and efficient. I really appreciated that there was no charge for checking a bag. I am certain that contributes to the ease of everyone getting on and off the plane. Our bags arrived at baggage claim about the same time we got there. I would definitely fly with Virgin Atlantic again."
Pros: "Speedy boarding and good locker space"
Cons: "Lack of room in seat especially with seat in front reclined."
Pros: "Everything was easy"
Cons: "Business class seats are snug for big people compared to other airlines"
Cons: "We were bussed to the plane, there were long dark hairs on my pillow, and they are generous with snacks at close intervals, but the food could be much better. The ideas are cute, but the actual food is pretty basic, which is disappointing for Virgin, who I hold in high regard. Or did."
Cons: "The food is not very good at all. One mediocre meal served soon after take-off, then for the rest of the flight tasteless, cardboard pasties and wraps."
Pros: "Provides the service you'd expect from an international carrier. Boarded on time, seat actually reclines, meals, baggage, seat assignments are included in the price. Staff treat you well and the price isn't bad."
Cons: "Virgin website is slow and not intuitive. Couldn't get seat assignment until i was at the gate. No explanation why. Boarding announcements delivered via ESP. Half of the passengers were still in the boarding area because no one heard announcements. Arrived 30 min early but had to wait on the tarmac for 45 min for a parking gate. Baggage delivery at JFK took forever."
Pros: "The crew were informative and friendly and attentive. We fly often and the food on this flight was the best we have had in a very long time, and we weren’t even expecting any. Thank you for a great flight Virgin ,"
Cons: "Long walk to the gate but no problem"
Pros: "- Presence of entire box sets of some TV shows was a nice touch that I made good use of."
Cons: "- EVERY damn movie is prefaced by 4 minutes of ads. - The touchscreens (at least in economy) are slow resistive screens that are horrible for fine control gestures (like slightly changing the volume or position)"
Pros: "The food was great. The flight attendants were very courteous and took excellent care of all passengers"
Cons: "Long flight lol j/k can't help that. It was a great flight, no complaints"
Pros: "Crew were friendly and courteous"
Cons: "Poor drink selection. Food mediocre. I felt like I was in the living room of the Beverley Hillbillies. Loud people, dressed like slobs. No manners"
Cons: "luggage never made it to Boston? Don't know who's fault it was.Problem was corrected."
Pros: "Legroom, lovely staff and all round good flight"
Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "Seats and legroom poor if you’re six feet tall"
Pros: "The crew and food were excellent. A little more space between seats would be appreciated. The entertainment equipment was not intuitive or easy to operate. I still feel the airline did a great job getting us to London on-time and a pleasant flight."
Pros: "The onboard crew were lovely."
Cons: "Stood at check in for over 30 mins with no staff in sight. Boarding was a disaster. Staff was not prepared nor organized and the crowds were unbearable. Upgraded seats were laughable and not worth an extra $60. Food was mediocre. Entertainment would have been good but GE touchscreens are so old, they were difficult to work."
Pros: "Safety. Service."
Cons: "Lavatory was icky and other passengers messy."
Pros: "The entertainment selection was good, though I didn't need to see the blurb about having vloggers available before every movie. One of the very few airlines to use boarding by rows, which speeds up the boarding process."
Cons: "The legroom is very cramped, pretty difficult to eat your meal with the seat in front reclined. The crew were not very attentive: they completely missed me while I was waving the rubbish on their collection rounds. In the end I had to dump it myself in the toilet bins. The PA system is too loud compared to the rest of the entertainment, had to remove the headphones for each one of them."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and attentive through out flight."
Pros: "I like flying Virgin whether Australia or Atlantic!"
Cons: "Just a little bit more leg room."
Pros: "in flight experience is above average"
Cons: "The computer system really needs a lot of improvement. We were checking in with our infant daughter and it took 50 minutes to check in with a senior person helping the check in person and phone calls to their technical assistance. We were told an infant is difficult in their system, and our dual national daughter was another layer of complication."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and professional, the food was good and offered frequently due to the long flight time (10.5 hours). The plane was comfortable even though nearly full. Overall, it was a good experience and I would definitely fly with Virgin Atlantic again."
Pros: "Helpful flight attendants"
Cons: "Delay at the airport due to system down where agents had to check in everyone manually"
Pros: "Fast check in Fast security line Upper Class Clubhouse Fast boarding Excellent onboard service Great crew"
Cons: "Old entertainment system Although the seats can be turned into a bed they don't fully recline"
Pros: "Good Virgin experience though food was not brilliant"
Cons: "Seating was very uncomfortable. Hardly any padding in the seats and very little leg room. Far worse than any previous Virgin flight."
Pros: "first time I flew VirginAtlantic. Heard so many good things about it. It fact even our Uber driver was praising the airline on our way to the airport. But once onboard: - poor food (I mean 'survival kit' style) - entertainment station was not working - games feel like 20 years old - design (heavy red) now looks dated and suffocating - hostesses are more focused on their hairstyle than their customers"
Cons: "Back to Air France next time!"
Pros: "The crew were excellent."
Cons: "Seats were ridiculously uncomfortable. The seat cushions were worn and had no padding. Very few movie, Show, music and game choices to choose from. The audio input didn't work in my seat. Major fail for a 13+ hour flight."
Pros: "Friendly, helpful, efficient staff on the ground & in the air. Great selection of movies, tv, music for each person flying. Comfortable flight. Great beverage & food choices."
Pros: "Great service outstanding staff"
Cons: "Entertainment package needs to better emirates and qatar could be taken as examoles Delay un take iff 3 times now in last 12 months"
Pros: "comfort, entertainment, food"
Pros: "The service, the service. My wife got a cheese and fruit platter after dinner. Crew went out of their way to make us feel special and welcomed. Excellent service."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "I liked the food and refreshments and the on flight entertainment was good.."
Cons: "I didn't like the boarding process.every other flight I've been on they board plane by rows.on this flight everyone was boarding at same time which was annoying and held up the boarding process.."
Pros: "The crew of the flight were very sweet and helpful"
Cons: "When I bought my ticket I wasent informed that I needed a return ticket out of New Zealand before entering so I had to buy one super last minute and almost missed my flight"
Pros: "Crew was awesome and their service was great. I liked that they put snacks like fruit out to eat during the flight."
Cons: "The meals were terrible. I flew on VA a couple of years ago and the food was very good but it has really gone down since then."
Cons: "BYOjet cancelled my flight"
Cons: "Let's see, my connecting flight was delayed. I missed my Sydney flight so they put me ona flight to Brisbane which was actually pretty great. Then, oh then they lose my bag. Two days later I guess is an appropriate time to then put it on the next flight? What? My bag is 20 pounds, smaller than a standard sized Dachshund. And low and behold they said I can spend up to $50 on necessities. Too kind, virgin Australia, too kind."
Pros: "Great cabin comfort and entertainment. Very nice place to be."
Cons: "Cabin crew less warm and professionally nice than Virgin. One point that needs addressing is that when the cabin crew or, even more so, the pilot came on the PA, the sound level was so much louder than that of the entertainment system. You had people jumping out of their seats and it was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Arriving over a half an hour late"
Pros: "Crew, atmosphere, timeliness. I was satisfied overall"
Cons: "Gate number changed couple times before flight departure"
Cons: "movie selection could have been better."
Cons: "We had to take a shuttle bus from the gate out to the plane, this made boarding very chaotic. The seats were not very comfortable- they needed more padding."
Pros: "Crew was great. Paris to RDU flight is very convenient. Fair summer pricing overall for our special itinerary. Beverages, snacks on international flight were great."
Cons: "Specialty food requested - reduced sugar because there is just too much sugar in airline food generally. Pretty awful. Some kind of (I think) pickled cabbage and carrots slaw was inedible. Plain yogurt was awful, needed something! Nuts, just a little bit of dried fruit would help."
Cons: "Again, make sure to note conspicuously that luggage price is not included."
Pros: "Flight was on time, smooth take-off and landing, and gluten-free meal available (ordered before through Delta.com). Alcohol was available at each drink service."
Cons: "No gluten-free snacks, lack of gluten-free awareness by crew, and gluten-free meal had an apple instead of the (gluten-free) ice cream bar the other meals included for the dessert."
Pros: "Happy to be home"
Cons: "Allow more time for check in"
Pros: "The food choices were broad enough for anyone. They came by with water periodically. The movies offered had a good range. The pillow was a surprisingly good size."
Cons: "Tight seating. Cold. Arm rests hurt my arms. Foot rest would have been a blessing. Blanket was too thin."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Tight plane and late!"
Pros: "The care and good food was much appreciated. There were plenty of excellent movies to watch to make the time pass in an enjoyable way."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "I actually can not complain"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, the seats were medium on the comfort range."
Cons: "More comfortable seats and more leg room!"
Pros: "There were minimal passengers on the flight so I was able to have the entire row to myself. The flight was also very short which is always nice."
Cons: "Lost my both bags in transit. Also, did not get wheelchair services at Paris and had to walk everywhere with bad legs. Not good."
Pros: "Cabin service very good and hot meal was unusually good for economy section (especially the chicken with hollandaise sauce)"
Pros: "I had the chicken beans and rice which was good, the chicken burrito was a little soggy and had to peal it out of the box but taste ok."
Cons: "The choice of the movies were either action or kids movies, i would like to see some sports movies, auto race, football or espn. All of the was energetic with great smiles and service except for one that never smiled and lacked enthusiasm. I wondered why she was on the plane."
Cons: "We thought we were flying AirFrance as our emails came from them and were surprised to learn after waiting in the AirFrance baggage drop queue for 30 mins that we were in the wrong place."
Pros: "Delta employees exceedingly cordial. food poor to moderate, seating space impossibly small but pillow and blanket were provided"
Cons: "seats too close from front to back, and not adequately cushioned"
Pros: "Food, comfort, entertainment and treatment by the crew on this flight was spectacular. There was a lot of food, good entertainment and importantly, the seats were wide and comfortable."
Cons: "Very old plane, 767-300. The bathrooms needed a better and more thorough renovation."
Cons: "Didn’t get our beverage and snack till we were almost ready to land at Charlotte"
Pros: "Great experience. Left on time and landed early. Comfortable and great crew"
Cons: "Wish there were more snack options"
Pros: "Service was good. Was upgraded for more space."
Cons: "Intertainment unit was not working correctly. Locked up after movie was over. No offers of any sort from crew about issue."
Pros: "It was a pleasant experience. The crew were very friendly and professional. Their entertainment system and movies etc on-board was very good. Food was great too"
Cons: "Nothing really. A bit more leg room perhaps. It seems delay flights have the shortest leg room when compared to other airlines."
Pros: "Really nice staff all the way through from gate agent to flight attendants. Flight left on time and landed early. Night and day vs American"
Cons: "Nothing. Flight was perfect."
Cons: "I didn’t appreciate that your rude flight attendant allowed another passenger to move suitcase and she got an attitude with me. Delta there is always something on your flights."
Pros: "There was a lot of food for this international flight. The seats were fine, just an overbooked plane."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "It was great because I was able to get an aisle seat."
Cons: "Like it all"
Pros: "Flight attendant was nice. She changed my seat to the front cause the guy behind me was kicking my chair."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight from the day before and when they rebooked my flight, they could of gave me a better seat."
Pros: "Seats and service."
Cons: "My return portion of my flight was canceled and had to purchase a new ticket. I would like a full refund of my expenses."
Cons: "I understand gate changes happen, but I got 4 texts switching the gates back and forth. Is that necessary?"
Pros: "Short no frills flight that was comfortable with no issues."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
Cons: "We landed at 2:14 p.m. but did not get our luggage until 3:38 p.m., with "priority" because we were traveling business class. Dozens of bags that were not "priority" preceded ours."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and the boarding crew. From the time I walked up to the counter at LGA to the time I exited the plane in CLT, I was treated so kindly and with such respect. Kudos to the Delta Crew."
Cons: "The FLIGHT!!!!! There were delays. Scheduled take of time was 6:59 PM. We took off at 735 PM. Once I was on the plane, I started kicking myself in the you know what because I knew immediately I was scammed. I had purchased a 1st Class ticket for $400+, only to find that my comfort would be the equivalent of that if I purchased a ticket in economy. My long legs would still be cramped. For the past few years, I have been purchasing 1st class for it's spaciousness. On this flight, on the RCJ700, I did not fly comfortably. The space was very tight, and I was able to stretch my legs as if I sat in economy. This was by far, my most uncomfortable flight ever. SMH; A WASTE OF MY HARD EARNED MONEY!!!!!"
Pros: "We spent 90 min in line to take off on the tarmac. Pilot kept us informed. Crew were very pleasant."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive with me"
Pros: "Airline stewards were very friendly and pleasant."
Cons: "We booked with Delta, but were put on Air France. Even though we had our boarding passes in hand we had to wait in long, slow line for baggage tags because they would not print from kiosk. There was minimal Air France staff on duty serving thousands of passengers during busy season (July). While the lines grew larger, the staff was reduced from 4 to 2. Another long, slow line for customs, another long slow line for security=Charles De Gaulle airport was awful. We arrived at the airport 4 hours before our departure time and got to our boarding gate with no time to spare."
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: "I got a seat in the exit row with lots of leg room. The entertainment that I didn't use offered a great selection with very recent movies, etc."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to take a bus to my terminal. I didn't like the fact that my gate was changed more than five times. I didn't like that my flight time was changed more than 15 times with no reason why until boarding time. I didn't like the fact that I did not get a seat assignment until boarding the plane. I didn't like the fact that they couldn't manage to scramble another plane and crew, but instead forced us to wait over four hours for one that was stuck somewhere else in the country."
Pros: "The food has REALLY improved!! GREAT CREW!"
Cons: "Three bags were left at Paris and were delivered to me only after more than 48 hrs - lock of one bag was missing and other bag was in damaged condition"
Pros: "Your flight attendants were very personable and made a very long flight a comfortable as it could possibly be. They were pleasant and always available. Delta is always my go to airline ... especially on long trips as I upgraded to economy comfort and had a few more inches of leg room!"
Pros: "Loved it all. That's good advice above :)"
Cons: "It was a blast!"
Pros: "The Airbus A330 business class seating was more spacious and comfortable than the Boeing 767 I flew to Paris from ATL."
Cons: "No opportunity for seat selection. Seat didn't recline, no blankets available so whatever part I couldn't cover with my jacket was cold from floor up (so no ability to control source), so no sleep, bordering on hypothermia. Seatmate was huge and continuously overflowing into my space (even though he suffered more than i did). Will endeavor NEVER to fly any flight involving Delta again."
Pros: "Everything was great! It is however a mystery why the attendants find it hard to smile once in a while. They were all attentive which is more important than serving with a smile."
Cons: "It was a great experience"
Pros: "Every thing amazing"
Cons: "This trip really excellent Thank you Turkish Airlines"
Cons: "The Ground crew didn’t know how to add a bag"
Pros: "The food and the entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding was late and they change the number of the gate without telling the passengers. The seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "Food and service is excellent. Istanbul lounge is great."
Cons: "Delayed in both directions. Happens. But zero announcements. Zero. Staff didn't know what was going on. Complete chaos."
Pros: "The crew was excellent, the food good."
Cons: "The entertainment system, in three out of four long flights, did not work. In the one that "worked", the sound was terrible and this made the experience totally unsatisfactory. A major airline should avoid this."
Pros: "Friendly staff, great food and entertainment selections, care package/pillow/blanket provided, comfortable flight"
Pros: "There was almost nobody on the flight. In flight entertainment was awesome too."
Pros: "The flight was excellent, with good food and good service. The crew was very professional and courteous."
Cons: "Our experience in the Istanbul airport. We got off our connecting flight and no one was willing to provide us with directions. We had to stand in a security line for two hours thinking that we had as a consequence missed our connecting flight. Again, no communication. We found out when we finally got through security (we had already gone through security at the Paris airport), everyone was in the same situation and our flight had been delayed. It would have been helpful to know that as we were standing in line. While in the line, many people panicked and starting pushing their way to the front of the line. Again, no officials were there to keep order. It was truly a mess! And creating too much anxiety and stress that I really wanted to not have on my trip back to the USA. I realize that in these times, we must go through added security, but I am accustomed to US airports where there is more communication over the intercom and by airport officials. In Istanbul, it seemed that everyone did not want to give directions, and airport officials seemed to avoid the public they were there to serve."
Pros: "The flight was good. The food tasted great. They had some good movies I haven't seen yet. The flight attendants were constantly up and down the isles either giving you something or taking away trash. The leg room was sufficient."
Cons: "The customer service on the phone and in person was completely unprofessional, rude and a bit uneducated. They yelled at me when I asked them "is there anything yall can do to fix this?". And then in person I watched them get out of their seats and yell at this older woman."
Pros: "Professional and friendly staffing, comfortable flight."
Cons: "We realized when boarding to first flight that they did not included my son on next connection flight...oops when it was addressed they fixed it in a professional matter with appologies at boarding."
Cons: "In flight entertainment system was not functioning. Turkish refused to provide hotel in Istanbul as per their policy even after being told by Turkish employees in the USA and France that this would be provided due to my 20 hour layover. I will not fly Turkish again in the future."
Cons: "Enjoyed the hotel stay on the long layover"
Pros: "Will definitely fly Turkish Airlines again!"
Cons: "No being able to rebook!"
Pros: "Staff were all amazing, meals pretty good for airline food, plenty of tv, movie and music options to stay occupied for the long trip."
Pros: "love the food and the crew service."
Cons: "Aircon could have been better. Someone got sick during the flight because of that."
Pros: "Friendliness, attentiveness, food, clean bathrooms, and great wine selection. I would fly Turkish Airlines anywhere!!!"
Cons: "I have lactose intolerance and I tried ordering the special meals. However the lactose free meals are not good. I got it more than once, it's always dry grilled chicken, steamed veggies and plain rice. Overall it's a dry meal and no flavorful at all. On this trip I didn't order a special as I was hoping one of the options wouldn't have lactose."
Pros: "Lots of crew members Pay attention Food was good"
Cons: "The boarding was chaotic"
Pros: "The food and entertainment on the plane"
Cons: "The Turkish Airlines staff can be very rude, non-communicative in passing along information. They do not like you to ask questions nor do they want to answer your questions. They yell at you or just simply ignore you. No legroom. The crew did not mention that are flight was delayed prior or that we missed our connecting flight and what to do from there. I was given a hotel room during my layover but its in a scary neighborhood and it smells like sewage is nearby. The Grand Yavaz. The cheaper price is not worth the hassle. I can spend my good money elsewhere...i will be sure to warn others."
Cons: "1- bad service 2- bad attitudes 3- Always DELAYS 4- lost the bag"
Pros: "Crew service, as it was a big airobus, half plenty it was very comfortable to be there"
Cons: "lateness at least 40 minutes, while nobody from staff I was worrying about corresponding flight,"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled so that's it!"
Pros: "Entertainment options were excellent for adults and ado. The crew were very accommodating"
Cons: "Screaming children and passengers that don't follow simple instructions or cue with respect"
Pros: "The service was okay."
Cons: "There was a woman sitting behind me with a loud child that kept kicking my chair."
Cons: "Some of my electronics, clothing, and personal belongings were stolen from my luggage"
Cons: "Terrible connections. Long delays. Truly awful"
Pros: "Good meals, Free Drinks and more space than I'm used to on domestic carriers. would fly again!"
Pros: "The food.."
Cons: "That the anytime snacks that was offered was not available for passengers"
Pros: "This was the return flight I skipped base on the horrible customer service I received on the first leg of the flight."
Cons: "The bording process, the customer service and attention."
Pros: "The entertainment choice ! Amazing !!"
Cons: "They lost track of my suitcase. I just received it"
Pros: "Checkin and time"
Cons: "Food was meh."
Pros: "It got me to the next airport alive"
Cons: "There was not much to watch on tv and not enough alcohol"
Pros: "Excellent service, excellent food, very friendly crew"
Cons: "no subtitles on English language movies, which means I could not understand half of the dialogues because of the noise and poor sound quality. It would be very nice to always have English subtitles on all English-language movies."
Pros: "A great example of excellent service. The entertainment system really couldn't be beat."
Pros: "i love the movies"
Cons: "The cabin crew was rude and disorganized"
Pros: "Loved the leg room and movie/live TV selection"
Pros: "Had emergency exit row with plenty of leg room"
Pros: "The friendly atmosphere, and the choice of food and drink."
Cons: "Nothing was wrong"
Pros: "Every thing. The overall service in economy is equal to business class on American carriers, with the obvious exception of the seat itself. A light breakfast meal on a 45 minute flight? Absolutely incredible. I've also experienced this with Lufthansa in the past, but they didn't have seat-back entertainment on short flights."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."
Cons: "Small food/entertainment selection, jarring landing, inattentive baggage handlers."
Pros: "The crew was great, the food was good as was the entertainment :-). The bathrooms were even decent"
Cons: "They missed my connecting flight, were terrible at communication"
Cons: "Smelly and disorder"
Pros: "Very good food. Quite an extensive movie selection. Staff was very pleasant."
Cons: "It takes a bit long to complete all processes"
Cons: "The service is slow and flight crew do not go out of their way to connect or provide extra service. In fact they"
Pros: "Smooth. Polite. Delicious"
Cons: "we never ended up taking the flight. delays in istanbul had everything backed up. the customer service was entirely ineffective...no lines, no plan, no information. after waiting forever with zero assistance, we bypassed the airline completely and booked a new flight in order to make sure we were able to return to work on time."
Pros: "Not much went well, sorry"
Cons: "Because of bad logistics, the flight from CDG to FRA was delayed and therefore i missed my connection to AUS. Lufthansa personnel could have helped me make the second flight but didn't bother. I was rebooked on another flight through IAH which defeats the purpose of choosing a direct flight."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and attentive. Seats were very tight and uncomfortable, specially for a 6’3 tall person!"
Cons: "Boarding could be a little bit more organized"
Cons: "Confortable seats"
Pros: "Kayak would not allow me to change the ticket - referred me to FlyUs. Horrible customer service. I needed to return on Sat Jun 15 not Sun Jun 16. Would not give refund (i agreed to that when buying) but would not refund the tax, which i feel legally they have to do."
Cons: "Won't be using FlyUs or Kayak again for future purchases. Will go to the airlines directly. Too much red tape and horrible customer service for me to do this anymore. I fly a lot and have over 20,000 miles with Kayak, but those days are over."
Pros: "Kind and attentive crew, surprisingly comfortable seats with more legroom than I expected, even in basic economy, a ton of overhead storage."
Pros: "Service is excellent, comfortable seats and space between legs is comfortable even in economy."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "They cancelled my ticket because I missed the second leg of the flight. They didn’t even offer me an option and told me to find my own flight home. I had to pay $1100 on another airline to fly home tomorrow. I will NEVER use Lufthansa again"
Pros: "for the first time ever, my kid ate the airplane food, and it was because it was good. the service was really good and the staff outstanding."
Cons: "Te cabin pressure gave us headache. always happens with the A380 though."
Cons: "Airplane food eatable"
Pros: "Crew, boarding, seat"
Cons: "Paris airport is extremely passenger unfriendly. Better to connect somewhere else"
Pros: "Hospitality and attitude of crew Food"
Cons: "Cramped economy seats including leg space"
Pros: "on time no hassle"
Cons: "nothing in particular"
Cons: "The fact that I was re routed that my flight from Paris was late and made me miss my connection."
Pros: "Attentive and friendly crew, good selection of in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "Crew did not come around very frequently with water throughout flight, mostly only during regular beverage service."
Pros: "Great, polite, and well dressed flight attendants. All flight attendants treated us with care, they were kind, and provided exceptional service."
Pros: "The staff was communicative and genuine. The food was decent. Even though the flight arrived late I felt ok about it due to the direct communication of details about the situation. I was stuck in the extremely cramped space of seats just in front of the lavatory making the seat in front me 5 inches from my nose when reclined but the staff was sympathetic offering to ask the passenger in front of me to redress their seat more upright and also allowing me to spread out across two seats to compensate."
Cons: "While the staff compensated for the more than standardly cramped seating arrangement, I think the row of seats just in front of the lavatories should be either better designed or designated not usable. I am only 5’3” and 125lbs but still was faced with a mere 5 inches in front of me when the passenger in front of me reclined his seat. I couldn’t even stand in order to exit the row and had to crawl over the seats to my side. This had me thinking how dangerous this row could be in case of an emergency. Please consider designating these seats either not to be used or optional for passengers."
Pros: "great airport and ease of check in and quickness on boarding flight."
Cons: "boarding everyone all at once creates long unnecessary lines when staggered boarding would help"
Cons: "There were 7 families each with multiple young children who screamed and misbehaved the whole trip. After complaining, the staff did nothing. Bad trip!"
Pros: "Great service, comfy plane, smooth ride."
Pros: "Excellent service as you would expect from Lufthansa. Seating comfortable as well."
Cons: "No ice cream - they have switched to pizza or hot dog before you land."
Pros: "I love Lufthansa! Great service, comfortable, warm towels before meals served with real silverware. Amazing!"
Cons: "Service! Comfort!!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed twice. 3 hour trip took 15 hours."
Pros: "We enjoyed everything about our Lufthansa experience. Crew and flight attendants were very kind and attentive throughout the entire flight. On both of our international flights my wife and I had 4 seats to ourselves, which allowed us to stretch out much more comfortably. Flights were on time, landings smooth, online entertainment worked great, food was delicious, and the service outstanding."
Pros: "Service, food, on time, everything that counts was in place."
Pros: "Service was outstanding. Very polite and prompt."
Pros: "Flight went well."
Cons: "Frankfurt airport is large and complex. Takes some effort to negotiate from one flight to another."
Pros: "I was sleep the whole time"
Cons: "It was okay"
Pros: "Crew were all super polite and friendly"
Pros: "The water and small coffee cake was nice to have on this connecting flight."
Cons: "First, I had issues with checking into my flight online, which lead to me having to print my boarding pass at the airport. Since I had a separate flight with Eurowings that sent me from Munich to Paris, which was not connected with this flight, I came in directly into the airport and no where near a Kiosk to check in or print out my ticket/boarding pass. I explained to numerous employees my situation and they casually exclaimed I should be able to make it in. Once I got into the airport I could barely get through security since I did not have my boarding pass. I kept explaining I don't have a boarding pass because I could not check into my flight to obtain it. Then when they finally let me through with only 10 minutes to spare before my flight's gate would close, I finally reached the boarding desk only to be told I had to wait because out of the two men who were scanning boarding passes, they were too busy to help me. I then had to explain three times that I had already paid for and booked my flight, however, I could not check in online and was having an issue with an error that stated I was missing information, even though there was nothing marked in red or anything marked to edit, so each time I tried it denied me. I also tried calling for customer support and did not get a hold of anyone because the lines were too busy. After explaining all of this to the man at boarding, he made me wait an additional 5 minutes before helping me check into the flight and print out my boarding pass. I was treated like a stand-by customer and I did not appreciate it since I paid for this flight and tried to check in 24 hours prior. I was expecting much more from Lufthansa, as my boyfriend recommended this flight company to me, but I was extremely disappointed in so many ways it makes me question whether I want to fly this airline again for future trips abroad."
Pros: "Smooth flight. No delay, no unpleasant surprise."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "Food and beverages were pretty stingy"
Cons: "The boarding process takes too long as people try to take too many things"
Pros: "Flight on time, excellent crew and flight attendant, clean airplane, good entertainment,"
Cons: "Food was horrible, not enough water was offered to stay properly hydrated. check in; nitpicking weight of luggage. since we can only check one piece of luggage instead of two, please don't give me a hard time about 2 lbs extra."
Pros: "The flight was not fully booked."
Cons: "The snack provided was totally insufficient. the check-in staff were stringent about luggage size and weight even when the flight was not full."
Pros: "The crew was working hard, most were extremely nice and helpful. Their service was excellent. I enjoyed the food and drinks. The plane was clean and looked well-maintained. Most of the flight was smooth."
Cons: "Flight from Munich to Charlotte: I do not fly that frequently (just only about 1 or 2 times per year - usually with Lufthansa) so I had no idea that as an Economy class passenger I cannot use the Business class bathroom. I admit my mistake for violating this etiquette. There was no line formed so I just used it, but as I was leaving the toilet a stewardess grabbed my arm and sternly made me aware of my trespassing. She was very professional and I believe it was not her intention; however, she made me feel very stupid for not realizing that the Business class toiled is for the Business class customers only. Don't get me wrong, if I paid premium for my fare I would probably expect less crowded toilets too. In my opinion, this unwritten rule should be made more explicit to the Economy class passengers, as nobody likes to feel embarrassed by mistakenly wandering into an exclusive club they don't belong to. I know there are separating curtains, but they were open. I saw a line forming in the Economy section so my next instinct was to go a different direction, which led me to the Business section. I really needed to use the bathroom, so I did not think of the proper etiquette at the moment."
Pros: "Over the length of the 9.5 hour flight, my time in the Economy class was that the crew were professional, courteous and especially helpful. There is a magnitude of difference between the attitude and professionalism of this airline over any American airline I have flown. In the future, Lufthansa will be my first consideration."
Pros: "The flight was short and well organized, boarding relatively efficient, snack was just OK, service was nice and crew was very accommodating and seemed happy. Mobile boarding options worked well."
Cons: "Snack could be better."
Pros: "This flight from Munich to Charlotte was operated by Lufthansa. To my surprise (and a little help from a friend) I was upgraded to business class. does not get much better than that !!"
Cons: "I had problem with my ears - they were stopped and were hurting me badly. I approached first stewardess, she was very unpleasant and she told me that I had to go to the back of the plane, the one in the back of the plane was unpleasant too, she told me she was out of nose drops, did not offer me any additional assistance and told me I better consider not traveling if I have ear problem. Very poor service."
Cons: "Old plane. Bad food. Small seats. Obsolete entertainment system. Hate United!"
Pros: "phenomenal transfer from one flight to the next, thank you lufthansa"
Pros: "We try to fly Lufthansa when we go to Europe (2x a year). This trip we upgraded to more leg room in economy and what a difference! Everything else was the same, which has always been excellent. Munich Airport has great food and shopping. Lufthansa's service is truly impeccable, the airline staff were constantly walking up and down the aisles offering food and drink and comfort. Great end to a three week trip in Italy, Croatia, Slovenia and of course Germany!"
Pros: "Service, timeliness and new aircraft"
Cons: "Everything was excellent"
Pros: "The efficiency and professionalism was impressive."
Cons: "The temperature on the flight was uncomfortanly warm. the Airbus planes do not have individual air jets at each seat which is a desirable feature. Therefore, the environment felt stuffy. It would also have been nice to have refills on coffe and hot tea, however, no one checked back with us after round one. The bathroom floor should also have been cleaned more frequently."
Pros: "Very good staff and service"
Pros: "The food, the crew and the entertainment were top-notch, best flight I've been on. Economy was more comfortable than other flights :) will always try to fly with Lufthansa in the future!"
Cons: "Boarding was very chaotic"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accommodating (a first for me) they really did an outstanding job to make sure we were comfortable...they seemed to be actually enjoying what they were doing :) The food tasted amazing and was plenty..this is also a first for me, I had never said that the food on a flight was good before. The crew walked around the cabin many time throughout the long flight with drinks on their trays (not just the usual drink service) which was much appreciated. Overall they get a 10 from me! This was my first time flying with Lufthansa. I will most definitely fly with them again and recommend to all my friends."
Cons: "the selection of movies could have been a bit better. Although much to choose from such as tv shows etc., more recent movies would have been a plus."
Pros: "All the services were great."
Cons: "Everything was perfect."
