Pros: "Everything?"

Pros: "US airlines should model Qatar. New plans with exceeding long courtious staff who are happy to make your flight as comfortable and pleasant as possible."

Pros: "Food was very good and plentiful"

Pros: "The 17hr flight went relatively quickly. Much faster than expected."
Cons: "The long wait between flights and finding a scheduled flight before mine that I could have taken."

Cons: "Snack options were a bit limited for such a long flight"

Pros: "Plane was excellent"
Cons: "Original schedule was changed from Sunday departure to Saturday without notifying us resulting in a 12 hour stay at Philadelphia and a one day loss of our scheduled trip. So far no explanation from webjet."

Cons: "Well I had 13 hours of layover. I was extremely tired and sleepy."

Pros: "Nil"
Cons: "Seat not very good"

Pros: "I actually loved everything about the entire flight experience. Everything was awesome (Minus a 1-hour airport delay that was out of control of the airlines)."
Cons: "Nothing. Seriously. Tasty food, good movie selection, plenty of legroom, pleasant flight attendants, comfortable seats... good stuff. :)"

Pros: "Philadelphia-Doha was excellent and noticeably better than Doha-Bangkok. ood, service, condition of aircraft were all better in the PHL-Doha leg. I have done the trip a few times now so it is not a fluke. Odd that the Doha food (and I usually get the local dishes) is very so-so. I usually only take a bite or two. Not appetizing. The Doha-BKK staff was less professional as well. The trays of the main meal were left with the passengers so long, we passengers started to bring our own trays to the galley. The plane out of Doha was very tight so passengers in economy have that sardine experience. The cup holders did not work although they would have been useful."

Cons: "Flight was delayed for 4 hrs"

Pros: "It was comfortable flight with a friendly crew."

Pros: "Everything was perfect! From boarding the flight, decor, hospitality, clean, comfortable and my special meal selection was always right. The flight attendants greeted me before meals and insured me that they received my meal order."

Cons: "Hi I travelled on 7/16 from Philadelphia to Cairo through the Jordanian airline . Unfortunately the luggages didn't reach to Cairo airport with me . 3 days later they told me that the luggages in Jordan and I have to travel from Alexandria city to Cairo to receive my luggages . When I went their , I found my luggages were opened and missing much items . I made reports on the airport. The employees in the airport they wondered why the opened the selling box , and the box looks empty. The weight for this box was 32 kilograms in the time of shipping. And I paid $400 for extra weight . But when I received it was like 20 kilograms. Plus I paid $350 for Qater airline for shipping 3 luggage . That's means I paid $750 for shipping 3 luggages and I received it looks empty . I need refund for all shipping and $5000 for damages items , or I will complain this airlines through the American court . Thank you"

Pros: "It was the first time using Qatar Airways and I'll continue doing so in the future."

Pros: "Journey was ok."
Cons: "Flight was on runway for more than 45 mins. I had to run to catch my connecting flight. If the flight had to wait then why on runway after landing. Anyways I barely caught my connecting flight."

Pros: "This trip was nice. I will fly Qatar again"

Pros: "Good though. But not too comfortable with indiscriminate change of seats. Was held up in Doha because my seat was changed."

Pros: "The Boing 777."
Cons: "Flight attendants English very poor."

Pros: "The plane was clean, the staff was very friendly and attentive, the price was right, the seats were comfortable, and they had a good selection of movies /entertainment. We would use Qatar again"

Pros: "The app from Swiss air kept me informed and provided Soto checkin and boarding pass. Food was good, crew were friendly and helpful."

Cons: "Terribly uncomfortable seat."

Pros: "The inflight entertainment was great and helped to pass the time. The food was good for airline food."
Cons: "The flight staff was just okay - they could have been friendlier. The seat cushions seemed old - they were comfortable enough for sitting but not comfortable to sleep."

Pros: "The expedited transfer from late flight out of Rome was an amazingly efficint process, much appreciated. Was very stressed when I thought I could not make the transfer, but Swissair really had it covered. My compliments"

Cons: "2 hour delay and 3 crying babies on a red eye."

Pros: "friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "organise priority exit when we have a delayed arrival, so that those who have a train or flight connection can get out quicker"

Cons: "1.5 hour delay departing put a slight damper on this flight but otherwise it was fine."

Pros: "The crew was polite and helpful. The wine was free and each seat had it's own screen with a good assortment of movies and TV shows."
Cons: "The food could be much better. Although coming from Sicily it's tough to compare."

Pros: "Crew was kind and gracious."
Cons: "Hand carry was checked 3 different times. Goes to show that Swiss staff doesn’t trust its colleagues to determine if the bag passes muster."

Pros: "We left on time, arrived on time. Flight went well despite lasting over 10h30"
Cons: "Two of the flight attrendants in our area were in a bad mood and it showed."

Pros: "Staff was attentive and friendly. Food was great. Easy boarding."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Great food, snacks, and entertainment."

Cons: "Waited for baggage at Newark for more than 45 min"

Pros: "My own seat had ample legroom, good crew."
Cons: "Faulty headphone jack and person who kneed me in the back whenever I recline my seat. 8 kilo limit on carry-on luggage."

Pros: "The flight itself was very enjoyable. The only negative aspect was that the first leg of the flight was delayed long enough that I almost missed my connecting flight and my baggage was lost."
Cons: "The real reason for the negative review is a combination of the cost of this flight, loss of my baggage and poor service after the flight. I paid nearly $4,500 for an economy ticket from New York to New Delhi. The first leg of the flight, from New York to Zurich was delayed long enough that I made my connecting flight to Delhi within seconds of them closing the gate and as a result my baggage was lost. Once I got to Delhi I had to take a connecting flight to Goa and then drive an hour to my destination, where I was attending a good friend's wedding. All of my baggage was lost during transit by the airline, and unfortunately they never delivered by baggage to my hotel...so I was without formal clothes and normal clothes for the wedding for 4 days. The customer service line was no help, and the airline refused to deliver the baggage to me...the closest they would bring it was the Goa airport which was an hour and a half away."

Pros: "Food was actually really good."
Cons: "Please let families with small children board early. This is the first flight I remember where I and other families with small children had to board with everyone else, and it's stressful for all involved."

Pros: "It was an amazing flight with an amazing service thank you United."

Pros: "Good clean service that Swiss is known for."
Cons: "There’s never overhead space for carryon. Ever since they went to lift, I have had to put my luggage in a row near the rear, making me wait until the plane almost complete Disembarks before able to get the bag."

Pros: "The plane was very clean the seats were neat and everyone was very friendly."

Pros: "Legroom is too little"

Pros: "Very comfortable and attendants were very attentive."
Cons: "Checking in at the Tel Aviv Airport is an absolute nightmare! It is congested and disorganized."

Pros: "Boarding and cabin crew were excellent."
Cons: "Seats were too tight and squeezed."

Pros: "I cannot check in online for us flights so I need to get my seat at the check in. I am flying with swiss every month between Zürich and New York but a lot of Ines I get a shitty seat even if I am silver status As a frequent flyer I expect a priority handling which is not the case . No upgrade poaaibility due to wrong booking class (even if flights are very expensive) if this continues to go that way I will change airline alliance This is more a miles and more issue but it is really annoying me in a way that I really consider changin"

Pros: "The crew members were polite and efficient."
Cons: "There was no climate control. Our rows were freezing cold. People were wearing coats and blankets. Four or five rows up it was warm. My husband asked for more heat and the stewardess said she would turn it up, but nothing happened. Cold air blew out of the ceiling vents for the entire flight. When we reached our gate, we then waited in a long line to have our passports and boarding passes checked again. There were several Swissair crew members, but only one person to check all of the paperwork for economy. Then another long line to show our boarding passes again, while the business class entrance remained unused. Swissair needs someone to manage this better."

Cons: "Unorganized and hectic at the gate; personnel were rude and unhelpful. I was asked numerous times to Leave and let them do their work" when I asked why I was on standby and what that meant."

Pros: "Very good service on board"
Cons: "Crammed into middle seats both way. Many/Long lines in ZRH/SFO"

Pros: "I appreciated the big meal, dinner, about 2 hours into the flight. Nice to have real metal utensils, not plasticware, to eat with. The 'breakfast' for the overnight flight was more of a throwaway: muffin, granola bar, fresh fruit cup. Nice to get wine, or maybe beer(?), with dinner at no extra charge, served from regular wine bottles, not individual-serving containers."
Cons: "$35 per flight leg (Lufthansa policy) to choose seats was distinctly annoying. I didn't know when I booked the flights, so the surprise $70 add-in (for round trip definitely would have figured into the price/schedule choice in the first place."

Cons: "Checking in we had a nasty representative, but other than that, all was well"

Pros: "Friendly crew. Good food and entertainment. Comfortable seats."

Pros: "Professional and polite crew and comfy seats."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess, late as usual and with no organization of any sort. Terminal E in Zurich has no air conditioning, so you wait in heat and no air. Also who came up with the design to put toilets upstairs where you ave to go using small and crowded hallways."

Cons: "No plugs for USB chargers in economy. Entertainment units were broken."

Pros: "It was a very short flight. Thankfully very short."
Cons: "I paid extra for extra leg room and there seemed to be no difference in leg room between business class and economy class."

Cons: "Delayed 4 hours at airport with no explanation why and little compensation for the experience."

Pros: "Lots of snack service and real dinner's! So much yummm"
Cons: "Boarding was kinda weird and confusing."

Cons: "NO INTERNET!!!"

Pros: "Left and arrived on time"
Cons: "Seat cramped"

Pros: "Nice and friendly staff, good food and free wine"

Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "Luggage that had to be checked at the gate was not immediately available when we landed."

Cons: "Breakfast could have been offered."

Pros: "N/a"

Pros: "The crew was nice. They did a very good job under the circumstance."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over an hour because of an error on Delta‘s part. They did not verify people as they were boarding. Further the person in 17 F was doing video chat as we were preparing to take off and he had very foul language throughout the flight. The crew never said anything."

Cons: "Delayed flight ruined it."

Pros: "Missed it"
Cons: "Give back money"

Pros: "Actually leaving the airport after 2 hours late was the best part."
Cons: "Not be hours late. And then when you finally land have to wait longer for an open gate cause they're doing work on the other ones. A lot of poor planning on this trip. Very disappointed in this experience cause I love to fly."

Pros: "Friendly crew. Landed early."

Pros: "The flight was average, but the quality of travel on Delta this year has been the worst I’ve ever seen. It’s average at best and I’m considering going back to American because I have yet to have a true Delta flight consistent with previous years, the whole reason I switched to Delta."
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Seat was comfortable"
Cons: "The temperature, it was kind of hot."

Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Tight plane and late!"

Pros: "Dinner was good, entertainment also"
Cons: "Thought thecComfort Plus seats were not as good as Air Canada. Air Canada also serves Premium Economy the same good and drinks etc as Business Class. Did not feel special in Comfort Plus. Sorry just my comparison and opinion"

Pros: "I really liked it all."

Pros: "Friendly staff. Very comfortable seats"

Pros: "Good customer service in person"

Cons: "I had a 4 hour layover in Minneapolis, there was another flight to Denver that I meant I could’ve been home three hours earlier had I done standby, but because I had a cheaper ticket I was not allowed that opportunity. That makes absolutely no sense to me seeing as my flight was packed. I’m sorry my flight saved me money"

Pros: "The inflight entertainment options were nice, I enjoyed the flight status option, and the USB port was very helpful."
Cons: "Three hour delay due to wiring issues, cramped seating that made it impossible to get even the most basic of maps, and our flight attendant was upset that we didn't notify them that we were vegans in advance. We didn't know that they had vegan options, and weren't upset about not eating the in-flight meals. She was much more upset about it than we were and it made me uncomfortable refusing the food that I knew I couldn't eat. Other passengers even asked us if we had eaten anything. It was almost embarrassing."

Cons: "Paid extra for a seat that didn't have any extra leg room. The entertainment system was broken for the whole plane during the first 2 hours."

Cons: "I am very short (5’0”) but there just isnt enough room i cant imagine what a big person feels on a 9 hour overseas flight."

Pros: "Delta provided great entertainment options and it felt like endless food and drinks. The seats were also a bit more spacious than usual"

Pros: "There was one helpful lady"
Cons: "Flight was rerouted and rebooked twice. I’m stuck in Detroit overnight, and won’t be getting to Monterrey until tomorrow afternoon. Thanks, delta!"

Pros: "Uneventful flight - boarding was great and there were no hassles."
Cons: "No food. No onboard entertainment."

Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and it set off a slew of connection problems."

Pros: "Flight attendants were really kind"
Cons: "We were an hour late to leave so I missed my connecting flight and am currently stuck in Minneapolis for nearly 8 hours now"

Pros: "Stewardesses were sympathetic but could do nothing."
Cons: "A few flurries out of Philadelphia and flight is delayed 2.5 hrs, we therefore miss our connection and all they wanted us to do was spend 2 days in airport until next flight. Finally reached a compassionate soul at customer service who got creative and routed us to BCN via ATL, Miami and Madrid."

Pros: "Got upgraded to 1st / Business class."
Cons: "Due to weather the power outage in ATL, the flight out of PHL was delayed by about 30 minutes. No movies. No meals."

Pros: "We were probably in the air for 30 mins; great short flight. Plane wasn’t filled so had plenty of space."

Pros: "Crew was very attentive and curtious. Boarding was a bit more chaotic than usual and the gate agent made no announcement about boarding procedure, which certainly contributed to the scrum resulting. I arrived from the Skyclub several minutes prior to boarding time and was unable to find a path through to the Priority Boarding Lane. As boarding began she had to redirect at least seventy-five percent of those in front of me as they were not in First Class. Had she made one or more clear announcements about boarding procedure I rather doubt such a misunderstanding would have occurred with so many."
Cons: "For the third Delta flight in a row (all First Class) the crew did not make any effort to keep economy class cuctomers form storing bags in the First Class overhead or using the only First Class laveratory during flight. This flight I was unable to utilize the laveratory even once due to this excessive and continuous useage. Trying to do my bit to reduce our carbon footprint, yet I am sorely tempted to return to charter service when disrespect of the airlines own basic service class rules gets piled on top of TSA hassles."

Pros: "I had a window seat"
Cons: "bumpy flight"

Pros: "Flight attendant insisted to take my jacket. She didn’t return led. I forgot jacket in Cincinnati"
Cons: "I need my jacket"

Pros: "As usual, Delta staff and crew did their best to make the flight quite enjoyable and smooth."

Pros: "Boarding was very organized and quick. Slight delay taking off but not bad for JFK. Lovely crew. Bumpy flight but the captain kept us informed. Food better than expected. Flight arrived early but no gate so we had to wait."
Cons: "OMG! The seats are obnoxiously close together. I could only sit perfectly upright and even then my knees were pressed tightly against the seat in front of me. I am only 5'7". Impossible to rest due to lack of space. I tried to put my head down on my tray table but couldn't since it hit the seat in front of me. Mid flight my 13 year old daughter got back spasms. Upon arrival we could barely walk and looked like two old women limping down the jetway. No idea how a tall or larger person could have even sat down."

Pros: "one i got to gate i could relax"
Cons: "scary making connection from AA flight arriving int'l terminal"

Pros: "I appreciated the kindness of the staff at each of our stops. From beginning to end they were polite, helpful, and kind!"

Pros: "All crew was great"
Cons: "We lost checked bag or it was taken, will loss a half day shopping for replacements. Compensation policy very unclear, not counting on getting any."

Pros: "Arrived on time crew worked had"
Cons: "my seat was BAD , no recline- right by bathroom one of which was out of order."

Cons: "Compared to such airlines like Turkish or etihad, service and comfort was lacking behind."

Cons: "On time"

Pros: "When I finally got on a flight (see what I didn't like), the crew was very helpful and the flight was comfortable."
Cons: "When I checked in online, I received boarding passes for the first two legs of the trip, but was told to see a gate agent in Amsterdam for the boarding pass for that flight. It turns out that there was a problem, attributed by one of the KLM staff that I talked with to "a communication problem between Delta and KLM." As a result, I was finally given a stand-by boarding pass. Since the flight was full, I was denied boarding. After hours of trying to figure this out, the KLM staff put me on a flight for the next day and organized a stay at an airport hotel. The KLM staff were very nice, but it seemed to take a very long time to figure this out. They also failed to note that the denial of boarding in the records, which caused a problem in my return flight. The upshot: I missed a follow-on flight to Budapest and had to pay a huge rebooking fee for that missed flight. I also missed a day of my vacation."

Pros: "Liked the plane and the leg room. Had to switch itenary due to weather and the gate agent did a great job."

Pros: "Airplane was good, boarding was fast."

Pros: "The crew were friendly and efficient. The seats were narrow, but as to be expected. Meals were fine. Will fly Delta again and again."
Cons: "Flight Minneapolis to Detroit was delayed which caused us to miss our original flight and go out a day later."

Cons: "The original flight was canceled and a new one substituted - basically they wanted to fly a smaller aircraft (via a different regional carrier) so the flight number changed. PHL did not have the new flight info displayed at the Departures board or on the screen at the gate. Caused a little anxiety."

Cons: "Cramped, uncomfortable tin can of an airplane. Barely tolerable for even an hour’s flight."

Cons: "Delta Flight #1661 I paid for 1st class. My first flight was late so I arrived at the gate after boarding began. When the gate attendant scanned my ticket another printed. When he handed me the ticket my seat had changed to seat 25E. I told the attendant that I had paid for first class. He asked me to step aside while he contacted his supervisor, Joe. Then I had to wait until ENTIRE flight had boarded which defeated part of the reason I paid for the upgrade. This was on top of the fact I was so thirsty because 1st flight didn't have drink service and because it was late I had to book it to the connection arriving sweaty, hot and needing to use the bathroom. I was told they had given my seat away to someone as a free upgrade. Joe offered me a $100 voucher to take other seat which was less than I paid for 1st class, plus the seat was a middle seat in the rear of the plane. When I told him as much, he tried to manipulate me by telling me that they would have to kick someone out of my seat. When I declined the downgrade, they made me stand by while they kicked someone out of my seat which was embarrassing and humiliating. Then, when they handed me a new boarding pass, it was not the seat I had paid for and selected, instead it was in the first row, which I’ve always hated because there is no under seat storage and I cannot keep my backpack with me. When I pay for first class, it is primarily so that I can board first and so that I have extra room to work (which I need access to my bag to do). While I was trying to take out the minimum of the things I needed from my bag and figure out how to manage without it, 3 times a flight attendant told me they had to take my bag (since I was the last person to board they tried to prevent me from using the bathroom and they were anxious to leave early). I tried to explain that Delta had prevented me from boarding earlier and that they gave away the seat I paid for which was NOT the first row."

Pros: "Service was great. Seating was OK. It was a brand new vehicle, so the (climate/air handling) was great."
Cons: "Boarding was not well organized."

Pros: "I liked that I didn't have to pay for a carry on and the blanket they gave me in flight to stay warm it was a great flight."
Cons: "Only dislike was that the flight was ending other than that no problems"

Pros: "Flight left on time despite the problems"
Cons: "We waited for one hour to be able to board. The system crashed so we were very lucky to arrive very early to the airport"

Pros: "This was a routine fight that was handled well but Delta and crew."

Pros: "Crew was outstanding, seats were comfortable. The food was awesome!"
Cons: "it was perfect."

Cons: "Everything perfect although 757 planes seemed tired. Istanbul TA airport lounge is second only to Emerites."

Cons: "Row was very crowded. Seats much too close together."

Cons: "Room temperature control should be better."

Cons: "No delays would be good"

Pros: "It was a great flight."
Cons: "The cabin temperature was a little warm"

Pros: "NOTHING. Never made the connection."
Cons: "Flying your passengers to your hub so they can make their connecting flights, for a start..."

Pros: "The # of movies."
Cons: "I sat next to 2 children. It smelled like baby poo off and on for the whole flight. There are no individual AC so the entire plane was on one temp which was stuffy and smelly at times. If some one passed gas, you could for sure smell it. I told the flight attendant and they agreed before I could describe so it wasn’t just me."

Cons: "Boarding was late and the line was unruly. Paths for boarding were marked but once a crowd forms it's impossible to see."

Pros: "Food personnel"

Pros: "I liked there constant passing of water, food ."

Pros: "Friendly crew, boarding on time, leaving and arriving on time, well maintained planes, clean."
Cons: "Seats on this flight were even smaller than the previous. It almost feels that these seats were designed for little kids."

Cons: "This flight seems to be overbooked a lot! Why does Turkish Airlines let this happen so often? Had the same situation on my way to Istanbul. It just takes sooo much time and everything will be delayed and people get angry all along...."

Cons: "Didn't happen. My first leg to Athens was canceled which created a humongous headache since it ended up canceling my return flights. Air Canada had to put me on completely new flights there and back. I think this has taught me to go directly through an airline. Justfly was not helpful. Neither was Turkish airlines."

Pros: "The food was excellent and the crew was super efficient."
Cons: "Tight bathroom and no leg room."

Pros: "Excellent Staff very courteous and professional 5 star +"
Cons: "The Internet is complicated and not working all the time. Business class seats are dated need to be upgraded, comparing to other airlines."

Pros: "Only the stewardesses very helpful and professional"
Cons: "The seats"

Pros: "The food, crew & entertainment system"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over two hours causing great stress and worry about missing our next flight, which we did. As there were many of us on the neit flight also I wonder if any effort was made to hold that flight for us."

Pros: "Excellent service. Even the food was great :-). The bathroom cream and parfume were a nice touch. Nice hot towels, Nice touch to provide a menu! Check-in was a breeze"

Pros: "Every thing. Food travel and crew"

Pros: "I'm 6 ft 2. Legspace was adequate, and no silly boxes under the seats like other airlines that obstruct your feet. Great entertainment systems - modern, good selection. Food and staff excellent."
Cons: "Their online checkin systems could operate a bit more smoothly. At one point, I had to go in in person, because the online checkin site had an already past flight from their codeshare partner SAS showing up as the next flight, and I couldn't perform online checkin as a result."

Cons: "See comments above about connection at IST."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours. Given that you don't usually book onward travel with Turkish, it made a mess for me--doubled my cost to get the rest of the way home."

Cons: "The space between the seats were narow"

Pros: "Very nice flight attendants, the movie selection is good. They also provide a nice pillow and blanket in coach."
Cons: "The plane was older, I had difficulty reclining my seat, the flight attendant had to help me, the seat across the aisle from me was broken. Several customers on the flight were crabby and difficult, I think all the crowding makes them like that. Just a fact of airline travel."

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: "crew, food, entertainment was great. Seats were terrible"
Cons: "seats"

Cons: "Could not order my special meal in advance, because of turkish airlines website problems, and ended up fasting"

Pros: "Loved how friendly the staff was and wanted you to feel at home"
Cons: "Nothing out of the ordinary, seats can be a bit cramped but that can't be helped on a long flight"

Pros: "food was good."
Cons: "narrow seating space, no reclining. my entertainment system stopped working in middle of flight just after making my original playlist. also overhead bins were not enough."

Cons: "The fact that the flight was cancelled and I wasn't notified"

Pros: "Turkish canceled my return because I had the bad luck to miss the conection flight , I had to buy another ticket in another airline and even that they fined me"

Pros: "I am a frequent Turkish Airways travel and have always enjoyed my experiences with Turkish Airways."
Cons: "My seat was not functioning so I was not able to recline to more comfortably sleep during the flight. The flight was an overnight flight from NYC-JFK to Istanbul, i.e. so a VERY long flight! A flight attendent was not able to get the seat to recline either and said she'd come back to help with another seat or some other solution, but never returned. This made the flight less comfortable and a bit disappointing as my typically experience with Turkish Airways is excellent!!"

Cons: "they lost my luggage by my first stop"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything from good to entertainment"

Cons: "They cancelled my flight days before leaving the country or origin, leaving me incredibly inconvenienced."

Cons: "I like it everything. Turkish airline was great flight with great food and great service during the flight , great way to flight , thumbs up Turkish airline !!!"

Pros: "Good overall"
Cons: "The flight attendants were not paying close enough attention they walked fast through the aisles and walked in to my head as I slept and ran into my feet with the food service cart I didn't hear I'm sorry or anything they just kept going"

Pros: "Unfortunately for Turkish A. the plane was less than 1/3 full...tourism to and from Turkey seems to be way down for a number of reasons. That made it spacious coupled with a relaxed pace of passengers and crew. The lunch served was quite tasty and satisfying. No hassles about carryons weight or size. Electronics aboard seemed to work fine for those interested."

Pros: "Friendly & good food"
Cons: "Very organized"

Cons: "It was hot on the airplane"

Cons: "The food , the drinks were not cold"

Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Two really good meals and there were snacks in the back for the time inbetween. The crew was friendly. This was the best flight I've experienced in a few years."
Cons: "Too little leg room. My knees touched the seat in front."

Cons: "not all the crew spoke English"

Pros: "Crew was helpful."
Cons: "No entertainment"

Cons: "Rude stewardess"

Pros: "Everything was great."

Pros: "- nice treats around take off (turkish delight and Superman v Batman Chocolate cake) - good in-flight entertainment selection"
Cons: "- service was slow and steward/esses took awhile to respond to service calls; were not that friendly - trash wasn't picked up"

Pros: "Liked the hot towel, good service and gift bag of toiletries - unique among airlines for Economy passengers."

Cons: "There were a couple of flight delays. Other that that, I love Lufthansa."

Cons: "Service desk personnel at the gate were very helpful and attentive. The plane was only 1/2-2/3 full, which made boarding quicker. The food was tasty and coffee was great! We were also offered juice twice during the flight. Bathrooms were clean. Since the plane wasn't full, they weren't dirty even at the end of the flight. I brought my own headphones, but the stewards provided them if you need them. My one big complaint was that our seats did not recline, thus making any kind of shut-eye near impossible. Our plane left and hour late, but the pilots stepped on the gas and we got in on time!"

Cons: "The airline lost our bags!"

Pros: "TSA in Philadelphia were very rude and aggressive. This is not Lufthansa's fault, but LH can at least pass on word that their passengers were hassled unnecessarily by TSA personnel."
Cons: "See above."

Pros: "amazong"

Pros: "The crew was excellent"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "More leg room."

Pros: "smooth as silk flight, beautiful clean comfy airplane. Roomy seats. great entertainment system. Excellent friendly staff. Pretty darn good food. Excellent value."
Cons: "having to come back from vacation!!"

Pros: "The flight attendants were very attentive. It's clear they hire for people with high EQs."
Cons: "Not enough leg room. Media box under the seat in front of me so no room to put my carry on under the seat. Also, breakfast was skimpy. Some fruit and a muffin."

Cons: "seating is very cramped when the plane is full"

Pros: "I liked the food and the election of entertainment. I’m"

Pros: "Courteous staff, good in-flight entertainment, efficient boarding and deboarding, lots of space on the flight"

Pros: "Upgraded seats from PHL to FRA, which was great. Had a lot of legroom. Very nice staff, comfortable flight"
Cons: "Very small legroom from Frankfurt to Budapest. When you are 5’11 it’s hard to fly . The prices i have to pay all the time to upgrade only because I am tall is out of control. It adds hundreds to my flight cost when the prices are already high."

Pros: "Thanks for offering kosher!"
Cons: "Fish :("

Pros: "It was clean and it was on time."

Pros: "Very professional and nice crew. Clean and new planes."
Cons: "Flights are never on time, seats are extremely small and planes are very often full. Not enough storage for carry on."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled with a very poorly set up e-mail. No alternative suggestions, no phone number where to call, nothing. Very unhelpful. When calling a phone number finally found on the internet there was a 40 min waiting loop, only to then have a very bored and annoyed sounding call attended who finally was able to rebook the flight. Overall very poor service, at the very least there should have been a guideline of what steps to take now in the cancelling of the flight E-mail and where to call."

Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "Very hot on the plane, food mediocre, flight attendants could be friendlier"

Pros: "General quality and competence."
Cons: "I find the seats in Economy rather uncomfortable (Premium Economy is way better, but too expensive for me)."

Pros: "Actually decent silverware in economy. Cabin service very smooth and attentive."

Pros: "It was a amazing experience!"
Cons: "It was uncomfortable trying to stretch out"

Pros: "service, food, frequency of food being brought"
Cons: "having lights on for the last 2+ hours of the flight --> disturbed sleep, long in-airport walks,"

Cons: "Seats are cramped up"

Pros: "Ordered gluten free food but they were inconsistent about giving it to me. I received nothing until I asked multiple times after everyone was served then I had a normal meal slammed on my tray and flight attendant walked away. No apology or even a comment about what happened with my order. Flight attendant was rude although I was trying to be polite. We were lucky to have a spare seat between us and were comfortable for the flight. The entertainment system and the programming choices were quite good."

Cons: "Our boarding was scheduled for 1:45pm But crew arrived @ 1:45 And it took them 30 minutes to actually star boarding So we were 30 minutes late to Frankfurt and missed our flight"

Pros: "The service, nice clean airplane, decent food"
Cons: "During the over night time passengers we not offered any drinks, you had to go to the galley"

Cons: "The crew had an attitude."

Pros: "Super easy to book the flight,...easy check-in,...great experience"

Pros: "Short check-in line and time. Dinner offered on board. Very friendly flight attendants. Smaller airplane - 2-4-2 seats. Flight arrived about 45 minutes before schedule."
Cons: "Choice dinner was out by the time it reached our seats. Unable to reserve seats by phone. Then unable to reserve seats online. Seats all the way in the back. Tight seats."

Cons: "WE WERE MAJORLY INCONVENIENCED BY THE ABRUPT CHANGE TO OUR SCHEDULED FLIGHT. ORIGINALLY WE WERE BOOKED WITH LUTHANSA, BUT REROUTED WITHIN HOURS OF OUR PLANNED DEPARTURE TO OTHER AIRLINES. WE HAD PRINTED OUR BOARDING PASSES AT APPROXIMATELY 6PM ON THE 20TH FOR OUR SCHEDULED 5:50 PM FLIGHT ON THE 21ST TO FRANKFURT, GERMANY, AND FROM THERE TO VENICE, ITALY. WITH NO EXPLANATION, LUTHANSA CANCELED OUR FLIGHTS AND RESCHEDULED US WITH ANOTHER AIRLINE. THE ONLY NOTIFICATION WE WERE PROVIDED WAS AN E-MAIL ABOUT 10:30AM THE MORNING OF OUR FLIGHT STATING THAT OUR FLIGHT MAY BE CANCELLED. MY HUSBAND, WHO HAD BEEN SEEING CLIENTS THAT MORNING ACCESSED THIS COMMUNICATION AFTER WE ARRIVED AT THE AIRPORT, SO WE HAD RECEIVED NOTHING TELLING US OF A DEFINITE CHANGE TO OUR FLIGHTS. THE TRIP WAS UNPLEASANT AND EXTREMELY STRESSFUL, AS WE WERE PLACED ON STANDBY FOR PART OF THE JOURNEY. WE WERE REBOOKED FROM PHILADELPHIA, PA TO PARIS, BUT NOT GUARANTEED SEATS ON OUR CONNECTING FLIGHT IN PARIS THROUGH AIRFRANCE. WE WERE FINALLY ABLE TO BOARD THE FLIGHT IN PARIS AS STAND BYS WITH AVAILABLE SEATING. THE AIRLINE LOST OUR BAGS AND WE HAD TO BUY NECESSITIES UNTIL OUR LUGGAGE COULD BE FOUND. WE DUTIFULLY CALLED AS RECOMMENDED FOR STATUS UPDATES ON OUR BAGGAGE AND WERE ASSURED THAT WE WOULD BE CONTACTED ONCE THEY ARRIVED. WE WERE NEVER CONTACTED WITH ANY UPDATES."

Pros: "Flight was on time and staff courteous. In flight entertainment was reasonable but the food was not very good."

Pros: "Plane A380 upper deck"
Cons: "Hindu Veg meal could have been better. Boarding area was very crowded for a A380 plane"

Cons: "Flight got delayed for 6 hours. Had to rebook next flight, increased one more stop and travel time."

Cons: "- long wait, no space, mediocre service, bad food and the worst thing was that I had rail and fly and didn't even get a ticket for the train. So I had to argue with the responsible person in the train. Furthermore they told me that I have to pick up my luggage at the train station as Lufthansa apparently had a counter right there but my luggage got out the normal luggage claim so I had to walk back and for in the airport. This was overall a really annoying experience."

Pros: "the crew were exceptionally friendly and helpful"
Cons: "the seats are really not comfortable....especially the angle of the head rest...."

Pros: "The Airbus 380 was large and smooth. The cabin service in business class was excellent."

Cons: "Everything was great except for narrow seats."

Pros: "Boarding was well done. Keeping the correct sections boarding at their proper time. The in flight entertainment was excellent."
Cons: "Seats were very stiff. I have long legs and nowhere to put them. If you don't speak German you feel like a step child. Lighting turned on by the passenger to my left illuminated me while I was trying to sleep. No ability to control air flow. Got very hot sitting in the middle."

Pros: "Economy class seats are very tight and especially when the person in front tilts their seat back. Long flights can become very uncomfortable."

Pros: "The flight personal was very nice and Understanding. The food had a vegetarian Option which was very accommodating."
Cons: "I bought this flight months before the flight date and when I came to SeaTac to check in, I was told that I did not have a seat. The reasoning being because the flight was overbooked. That's not my fault and was very frustrating to have to wait for my seat, while everybody was boarding. Luckily, I still got overhead Storage for my backpack, but if not, then I would have been expected to just deal with it? All in all, it worked out, but it started out as a very frustrating experience. I hope that it won't be the same on my way back"

Pros: "Entertainment was good, lots of movies to choose from, good audio quality"
Cons: "Boarding was completely disorganized. They were calling groups based on the seat number but everyone was standing in line without paying attention to it and they were not enforcing it. So we ended up with a lot of people from the first rows boarding before the other and blocking everyone. Comfort doesn't exist anymore in Economy class, if you are taller than 5.9' your knees will touch the seat and you are squeezed in like cows. But that applies to almost all airlines nowadays."

Pros: "The service was very good. The dinner was surprisingly good."
Cons: "The seats are so cramped together...but no worse than any other airline. I had trouble finding the baggage ares in Frankfurt. The signs were confusing."

Cons: "The staff in the check in was not sure if i need a visa to enter Europe, viena and Frankfurt and i really explained that Albania is in shengen and we do have bio metric passport but they need to verify which took around 15-20minutes waiting there."

Pros: "It would be helpful to have the option to chose the meal in advance during online check in. At the gate I was told that one would need to make a phone call for that. Online would be easier,"
Cons: "The UA crew tries hard but a flight operated by Lufthansa feels more relaxed and more comfortable. Difficult to pin down the exact reason for that. Also: are those bag tag self-printout machines at UA / O'Hare really speeding up the process / cutting costs that much?"

Cons: "Service is poor, Food quality is terrible, Luggage handling is not provided from United airlines to Tunisair this inconvenient"

Cons: "I ordered a Kosher meal and I received frozen, even the water was solid frozen. I told the flight attendant when they recollected the trays and she took note to avoid the same mistake for Breakfast."

Pros: "Great. Flight. Great service. Great plane Thanks you Although there was a delay about 30-45 min."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "BAYLES!"
Cons: "Noting."

Cons: "Didn't take that flight"
