Airline reviews

Pros: "The crew was friendly, the food delicious, and the plane itself in highest quality and state-of-the-art."

Pros: "This is the way to fly long haul."
Cons: "Frustration is it is impossible to sleep during the breakfast service, but this is a problem for all airlines and Virgin is better than most."

Cons: "Information on when we can check in on upcoming flights. Other airlines we have booked for flights will email us 24 hours prior to departure. Virgin Atlantic did not. I had to call and I was directed to their web site and was able to check in on line. Thanks"

Pros: "such a big difference in size of aircraft, very comfortable and great crew."

Pros: "the crew was very polite and professional."
Cons: "the aircraft is small and confined, only two toilets for the entire economy level passengers for a 6 hour flight. the online entertainment lacks variety and the food was okay."

Pros: "Virgin Atlantic is the best airline I’ve ever flown on internationally. The service is wonderful, from check in to inflight service. Everything went as planned. The food and drinks on board are free and they are an abundance of snacks, much more than we dreamed. The flight attendants are excellent"
Cons: "No. Keep up the good work!"

Pros: "Excellent airline"
Cons: "The business seats could have been wider. I have sat on business class other airlines and the seat was a bit wider but overall still great experience"

Cons: "They have to uptade the airplanes"

Cons: "Poor communication about the reasons for our 4 hour delay. Also, we purchased Economy X, which should have given us priority boarding, but we were told we had to stand in the general admission queue."

Cons: "Unfortunately because the flight was delayed 2 times I was going to going to miss my connect flight to London. So I canceled my trip. I would appreciate a refund as I don’t understand what all the delays were about"

Pros: "I like the professional approach of the airline and the staff. Seats are really comfortable and i did not need my sleeping pillow at all as the headrest of my seat was already so comfortable."
Cons: "There is not much which i did not like about this airline. Just like other airlines, now have started feeling that Economy class travellers are being approached with bit biased approach in hospitality though they have major contribution in meeting flight running expenses. All airlines should start considering this fact and improve the overall approach."

Pros: "I had one of the few empty seats next to me."
Cons: "The food is awful. Not enough toilets."

Pros: "Good collection of movies"
Cons: "To pay for luggage for international flights while on their website it says i dont have to pay if im going to South Africa. The food was not so great."

Pros: "Smooth overall. Food mediocre but edible. (More than I could say for other airlnes.) Price also good."
Cons: "Lots of flight schedules changes. Missed connecting flight as a result. No time left to deal with customs and baggage."

Pros: "Sharp good atention in counter"

Pros: "A smoothtrip run by great staff."
Cons: "Thé food was rather stodgy overall."

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: "I loved the in flight entertainment, and there was always so many snacks and drinks available for free!"
Cons: "For boarding, we had to walk a rather far distance due to construction."

Pros: "I loved the food and the amount of it. There were so many movies and tv shows and music to choose from!"
Cons: "The seats weren’t comfortable enough for me to fall asleep."

Cons: "They lost my luggage, and ruined my trip, Customer service doesn't pick up the phone"

Pros: "Crew was amazing and we got fed so often. The movie choices were good."
Cons: "I wish I could have ordered a drink (pay or otherwise) from the tv in front of me"

Pros: "Service, meals, friendly and attentive FAs"

Cons: "One particular female member of crew could do with a refresher course in customer care service !!!!! I asked for water and she gave me something else, when I told her very nicely that I had asked her for water she began to argue with me that I hadn’t, I thought her very rude, (what happened to the customer is always right) I have been flying with Virgin for twenty years twice a year sometimes even three !!!! and never been spoken to like this from any other member of staff!!!!"

Pros: "The crew was pleasant and attentive"
Cons: "The entertainment system was not good. The touch screen was not calibrated and very hard to select and scroll through. The flight was over a hour late so we missed our connection. Got rebooked okay, but after traveling for 18 hours having to wait three extra hours was a drag."

Pros: "Staff on this flight were excellent"

Pros: "Fast boarding and nice staff. Food selection was ok"
Cons: "One item missing from menu (unavailable). Issues with entertainment system. Bathrooms lacked moisturiser which is always very helpful on long flights where the air is dry"

Cons: "the food selection did not meet my diet restrictions. Found it hard to avoid due to hunger over the duration"

Pros: "Overall comfortable journey"
Cons: "No option to book food option 24 hours before as could check in could not been done earlier than 24 hours before flight. I logged exactly 24 hrs before filled in details which took a few minutes by that time said too late to book special meal."

Cons: "Everything about my experience was HORRIBLE."

Pros: "Very polite and helpful staff."

Pros: "I was selected for additional screening at the gate. I have no problem with this at all. From the start I told them I am traveling with my fiancee. They tried to hold me back in a separate area after the screening and I once again told them my fiancee was waiting for me. One staff memeber walked with me half way back to get her and then disappeared. By the time I found her and came back, the staff memeber was no where to be found. Now we had lost are spot in the line and had to go to the back of the line. We spoke to 3 different staff people about what was going on and everyone said, oh the guy over there will help you. But no one did. The staff had No idea how to run a security check or handle paople. There was No working wifi! There was no tvs in the seats, only the old style in the aisle. The staff told me the plan was going to retire at the end of the month. The food was more for animals then for humans! We got updates by txt 10 mins before the staff updated the gate on our flight out from SFO. I have traveled all over the world with a lot of airlines and Never had such a poor service, but what is it to expect. It was United after all!"
Cons: "Refund of the whole flight."

Pros: "From the check in to the service on board was very good. Staff were polite and respectful."
Cons: "The food was small. There did not serve bread with the meal"

Pros: "I liked that the boarding went really fast and the staff at the JFK airport was super nice and helpful."
Cons: "I didn't like how rude the airplane crew was and how useless and unhappy they were. The sits were very uncomfortable and the food didn't have any taste."

Pros: "I felt that they were very thoughtful about the fact that it was a long flight. We got two small meals, which was perfect, and even a little gift bag with a sleep mask and toothbrush and such in it. These were just a couple of the many nice touches included in the flight."
Cons: "Very small quibble: the screen resolution, or maybe the contrast, of the personal video players was not so great. This was fine in most cases, but it meant I could not watch videos that had subtitles. Not a big deal but possibly worth fixing. Thanks"

Pros: "The staff was so helpful and upbeat and somehow they stayed that way the whole 8 hour flight. This was economy btw! More good things: Comfy seat, personal entertainment screen, really nice food. One free checked bag, bathroom was bigger, (it may have been a handicapped bathroom)."
Cons: "Nothing was a problem at all. (I saved "excellent" for the things I really wanted to emphasize)"

Pros: "Neat plane, good food and service"
Cons: "The entertainment screen was very dark. To bad since there was an ample selection of movies."

Pros: "I liked everything, which is very uncharacteristic :)) At least compared to the big American carriers or the national European ones, VA is a gen - esthetically for sure. Clean, comfy, stylish! Will be my choice from now on."

Pros: "Nothing - except the toilets with tabs for lifting the seat & adjustable headrest. They forgot to load our toiletries overnight pack too!"
Cons: "The 787 has vastly inadequate Economy toilets - ONLY 4! For 200 passengers. Inadequate lighting for,boarding, unable to activate reading lights until AFTER TAKEOFF = groping in semi darkness, BAD! No window blinds = woken up by blazing sun in middle of 11 hr night flight, even with sleeping pills my sleep was wrecked, even with eyemask. Passengers penned in on narrow aisles by trolleys, unable to walk around plane & risk of DVT. Passengers disempowered by restricted space, lighting, mobility. I want more control over my personal mobility &, lighting. Horrible headsets (bring my own). This flight departed 2.5 HRs LATE from JHB & the crew & cavin service was SLOW. NO requested second cup of tea brought - I waited 20 mins & climbed over trolleys to get another one, even though it was requested of cabin crew. Do they just ignore us? Or forget?"

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "BYOjet cancelled my flight"

Pros: "Non stop"
Cons: "Food was not good, they served snacks and did not serve drinks with snacks. Seats were tight"

Pros: "Seat Legroom Comfort Food Service Crew ... amazing!!!"
Cons: "Price?"

Cons: "The cabin was extremely dirty, the food was awful."

Pros: "Overall, great flight. The gentleman in LAX waiting for us late arrivals from the connecting flight from MSP was very capable and helpful, going into action for us so we could make our tight connection, in which the others should have already boarded."
Cons: "Knowing where my bags were, and if they'd made it with me."

Pros: "There were lots of choices of movies. The flight was only half full, so I got two seats together to stretch out."
Cons: "The cups for water and juice were very small."

Pros: "Plane was new or newly appointed interior. Bin space very adequate. Lavatory larger than usual. Crew was friendly. Dinner choices good and quality better than norm in American carriers."
Cons: "Snack and breakfast were odd, centered somewhat on dairy products (annoying if lactose intolerant)."

Pros: "Major issue: No information in advance of problems associated with transfer at Heathrow that required going from Terminal 5 to Terminal 3-- requireing a lot of walking, stress, time and security checks."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "My ticket was cancelled at the time I was standing in front of the airline counter to check my bag. I was so furious. The airline did not help me at ALL. In fact, they offer me to buy a brand new ticket at a new price!!!!!! I ended up re-bought the ticket from United airline as my husband has United card (chase) and we ended up paying over 1900 for the ticket that should have been about $911. The priceline number is not helping. I have trip insurance but no. nothing worked. I will never fly Virgin Atlantic again."

Pros: "Great service, comfortable and punctual"

Pros: "Crew were great and friendly."
Cons: "Not enough room in the seats and not enough leg room. Unable to sleep as we could not get comfortable. No where to put rubbish when eating the meals etc."

Pros: "Feeling Covid safe."
Cons: "More attention to those not wearing masks properly ."

Pros: "The crew was polite"
Cons: "Less delays"

Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hours. Wifi/entertainment wouldn't connect."

Cons: "DTW to FLL, plane was delayed coming from BOS to DTW 5 hours for BOS weather. The plane arrived & they announced they would turn it around ASAP. They started the boarding process & then stopped it stating that a crew member had timed out. Delayed hour to FIND one. Shortly after delayed overnight."

Cons: "The international flights plane was much older - janky outdated screen that’s hard to use, zero leg room, and usb outlets that didn’t work. Also the WiFi kept dropping. The delta staff, food service and nice extras like warm cookies and towels were excellent."

Pros: "The seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Why does Delta sell earphones?"

Pros: "The access to the full library of entertainment & internet access included with the flight ."
Cons: "Larger Portion/Variety of edible Snacks . . Chips Trail Mix Cheese itz Cookies"

Pros: "The crew was really nice! They were very energetic!"
Cons: "I am not blaming the airline, but the Salt Lake Airport. Everything was slow and everything was delayed!

Pros: "Delta planes are spacious and great!"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "The WiFi didn’t work well"

Pros: "Airport accessibility"

Pros: "Fast and efficient"

Pros: "All aspects"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "the people were Awesome!!flight crew were very personable and easy to get along with, as well as get in touch with."
Cons: "where to start, I am not a huge overweight person. I have 26-28" shoulders and longer legs then most 5'-10" people have. That said, you should not be required to hold your arm out and hold the seat back in front of you so that you are not elbowing or shouldering the people beside you. sitting sideways on a seat I paid extra for doesn't seem like a great flight to me."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The FA’s and pilot"
Cons: "I love the flight becayse it was smooth sailing and delta is always choice."

Pros: "Excellent flight crew, flight had decent leg room. Loved the inflight entertainment. Clean plane, boarding was easy."

Pros: "Going back home to the US"
Cons: "I had 15 hours layover in Amsterdam so I got me a hotel.one hour after I got to the hotel I got a notification from Kayak app asking me to go get my bag from Schiphol. My bag was supposed to be directly shipped to PDX. I had to leave my hotel back to the airport and spend 2 hours trying to find it only to be told that it was going to PDX. I lost my $170 hotel room, over $70 for taxis and ended up spending the night on the floor at Schipol. I do not think I'll ever use Kayak again. The travel guarantee is a joke too."

Pros: "Flight attendants we were very nice and efficient. Flight was short"

Pros: "Traveling with a 4 year old isn’t always easy. Delta’s flight attendants and the captains controlling the plane were excellent! Safe flight. And the entertainment that is provided for the customers is fun and relaxing. Makes a 4.5 hour flight go by quick. Thank you delta, I will be flying with you in the future"

Pros: "Crew was awesome"
Cons: "No TV unfortunately"

Pros: "During some bad weather the pilots chose to go into a holding pattern to wait for a thunderstorm to leave the field. Thanks for considering our safety. The entire crew was awesome."
Cons: "Why do the airliine attendants make sure all of our seat belts are fastened before they give us a safety briefing to demonstrate how to buckle our seat belts?"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "The crew were so polite and happy!"
Cons: "Those seats! UGH!"

Pros: "nice people"
Cons: "need more free food and drinks"

Pros: "in Charlotte"
Cons: "delay on flight"

Pros: "Horrible experience! Flight was delayed over an hour with no announcement. Seat was reassigned from front aisle seat to rear window Seat. Fortunately, it was a short fkight."

Cons: "There was a change in our flight. According to Delta you didn't confirm every leg of our flight and the plane was over booked."

Pros: "The entertainment system"
Cons: "That one flight attendant brushed me off with a wave of her hand... SUPER RUDE!"

Pros: "Flight was comfortable. Short, sweet, and landed before I knew it. Boarding was a smooth process."
Cons: "The flight crew and service on the plane was fine. My biggest complaint was at the baggage drop off at the airport, where there was quite a long line without any crew members assisting us. A five to ten minute wait is fine, but a fifteen minute wait, with only three crew members compared to the other airlines? By the time I dropped off my baggage, the other airlines were finished with their customers, and there was still quite a line behind me."

Pros: "Barcelona is a busy place. Don't forget your adapter plugs - like I did."

Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "Cramped seating in coach. Think comfort not profit"

Pros: "Received sky boarding despite having a seat near the front. I like the smaller plane because there was plenty more leg room where I was (9c). A variety of free snacks were offered along with starbucks coffee, score! I wish I'd brought my ipad to take advantage of the free wi-fi and movies in-flight. Take-off & landing were very smooth despite a delay upon take-off. Made my connecting flight with time to buy lunch."

Pros: "Service was great, flight was excellent"
Cons: "Delay"

Cons: "Delays and ground chaos nearly caused us to miss our international connection. Gate staff unable to provide assistance with booking on connecting partner airline. Gate staff unaware of new terminal 3 to TBIT airside shuttle nearly directed us to leave domestic and requeue for international security. Will like skip Delta connectors to long haul international flights and just fly direct from SFO."

Pros: "Reassuring that the airport desk staff were keeping an eye on my connection from LAX to Columbus. Turned out it was too tight of a squeeze and I missed the connecting airplane's door closing by a few minutes, despite having RUN through LAX to get there."
Cons: "I am disappointed by the lack of communication among Delta staff when we arrived at LAX. Our turn-around was late coming into SMF, thus late leaving. It would have been very helpful if the gate staff at LAX had advised me to not bother to try to make my connection, or called the next gate to tell them we were running over there. RUNNING. Or at least done something to act like they cared. I am disappointed by the lack of initiative. I understand flights cannot wait, and I would have greatly appreciated being saved the trouble of running to a different terminal and instead taking that time to change my travel plans. They may see travelers struggling like this daily, but to each traveler, a hiccup in travel plans trip is stressful and urgent. I ask Delta staff to please consider that when they come to work. Thank you."

Pros: "Met my cousins from Portland in SLC and killed layover time"

Pros: "Whoever making announcements from the cockpit seemed excited to be going to the Bahamas. Made the short trip from Atlanta very light hearted."

Pros: "New and improved food options!"
Cons: "Boarding took more time than usual. They were able to accommodate less carry on baggage."

Pros: "The seats were comfortable, service was good, movie/entertainment selection great. Logistics for flight were awesome, there was no long layover."
Cons: "The extra fee for check-in baggage."

Pros: "Pilot has very smooth landing. Crew were nice"

Cons: "in Amsterdam any DELTA crew helm us, only KLM"

Cons: "Flight was delayed. Delta doesn't challenge anyone who attempts to pre-board. It's become somewhat of a joke. The plane was hot (717) with very poor ventilation. Was in 1st class and didn't get beverage service after boarding. Then, the plane sat on a remote taxiway another 30 minutes before takeoff, fully loaded, no A/C, and still no beverage service. Truly miserable hot and sweaty flight."

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Tiny seats"

Cons: "Seats don't have wings to rest your head on. The distance to the seat in front of me was of course way too small making it nearly impossible to use my computer."

Pros: "Friendly crew"

Pros: "I definitely like the variety of entertainment that was given throughout the flight."
Cons: "The flight attendant was so rude to others including myself. I'm not one to be to needy but when i was about to ask the lady if I can switch seats to the fair back where there was two empty seats she gladly let the other person but not me. She said no that if I wanted to sit back I needed to set with the other person. Our flight was from NYC to PR 5hour long and in between those hours she let a couple sit together on the other empty rows while I was feeling supper sick. Other passengers notice and had told me that they felt sorry for me. I was Embarressed. I was debating on venting on Twitter just yet and also on this review because what difference does it make. What matters the most is that we all got to our destination safely."

Pros: "the chick who worked the counter for the preboard flight counter was really REALLY nice"
Cons: "everyone on my flight was ugly"

Pros: "Everything was excellent even the landing was as smooth as butter"
Cons: "A free upgrade to a business class seat :("

Pros: "The best airline"
Cons: "My above head storage was occupied with airline stuff. They boarded a little late and there were no separate lines for front and back of the plane."

Cons: "The flight from Cairo to Istanbul was delayed one hour and I missed my flight from Istanbul to Houston and i had to get a visa for $30 in cash and spend the night in Istanbul thus I will be arriving a day late in Houston. I was offered no assistance to avoid missing my flight. I had to run only to find my other plane left without me..."

Pros: "Comfortable seats and good entertainment, nice food"
Cons: "Cabin crew were not friendly, and were resistant for any special requests"

Pros: "Crew are good ,seats were more than ok"
Cons: "Better seats and headphones to listen to the intertainmen system"

Pros: "Everything was fine except the fact that our flight was rescheduled on 24 hours earlier than the original one. It was extremely inconvenient."
Cons: "When the airline interrupts your trip last minute and passengers are trying hard to adjust their plans it would be nice to have a little appreciation from the airline team. And they do not have to be rude to people who are asking to explain the reason of the changes."

Pros: "My seat didnt recline so i wasnt feeling comfortable"

Pros: "Good food and service."
Cons: "I am not tall but still had no legroom. Plane configured with too many rows."

Pros: "Liked that they moved me to a better seat - was sitting next to a cranky old Turkish man - who complained every time we brushed his legs getting into our seats- he refused to stand to let us into our seats- I said this is not gonna work and they found me a great seat with some normal passengers."
Cons: "Food was just ok, plus it’s a longer trip - I understand they kill the lights to let people sleep but offering more drinks - soda and water would b nice - rather than having to go to back and beg- they know who is awake and watching movies - b nice to ask."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Organized overall"
Cons: "Cabin way too cold"

Pros: "The entertainment option was pretty good"
Cons: "There's very limited legroom on this plane."

Cons: "At boarding they went in two stages. First stage they called people to board by category first people that needed more time then families with small children etc. HOWEVER, the put all of us in an intermediate room and the door to the gate was closed. They passed everyone so when the gate door opened everyone were trying to get to the gate and there was no order. That was stupid to say the least. Turkish could have waited the couple of minutes needed to get the gate open!!! and save the hassle!"

Pros: "It was a traumatic flight"
Cons: "The security check in Istanbul was humiliating and I haven’t received this kind of check in my life specially in a connection flight! In a disturbing way the check was in the gate only and includes separation between man and whomen then examination of our bodies with human hands , opening our bag , no shoes etc."

Pros: "Entertainment was good. Flight was comfortable"
Cons: "The crew was unkowledgeable about toddler aircraft seats. The flight was delayed by 1 hour, causing us to miss our connecting flight."

Pros: "The service in plane was on average , but this is provided with other airlines I guess"
Cons: "The trip was delayed with no apparent reason, they blamed Baghdad airport which they denied, the waiting area was uncomfortable There were people let them in bypassing the queue"

Pros: "My flight from Budapest to Istanbul was delayed by weather and heavy flight traffic in Istanbul. At booking time, I had only a 1 hour layover, which I commonly NEVER schedule. Upon arrival at the IST terminal gate, I exited quickly and was met at the end of the runway by a Turkish Airlines customer service rep, permitting me to transit directly to the transit lounge, rather than sending me back through security yet again. As she looked at my boarding pass for the next flight, she knew who I was and she sent me directly to the proper gate for my next flight. Turkish Airlines, you ROCK! (My bag even made the connection!)"

Pros: "Timeliness. Orderly boarding"
Cons: "Entertainment. Remote didn't work. Touch screen was painful to use."

Pros: "Paying only half of what other USA airlines offered we had a one stop trip from (IAH) Houston to (TLV) Tel Aviv and were served two meals with offerings of other food if needed. I don't know what was served but it was good yet very different from what we eat in Texas. Then we had a 2 1/2 hour layover in (IST) Istanbul Turkey which gave us plenty of time to get off the plane, shuttle to the terminal gate then walk around the airport for about an hour before heading to the next gate for our connecting flight. The crew was very pleasant and the flight very smooth."
Cons: "The landing in Instanbul Turkey was very poorly done, by far the worst I've ever experienced but the rest of the flight and connecting Turkish Airlines flight to Tel Aviv was great. The seats are very cramped but not much different than any other economy seat I've had on any other USA airline. The price of the ticket more than made up for the seat."

Pros: "Food and entertainment much better than any other airlines."
Cons: "Too long distance between terminals and very short time between my connecting flights make it almost not possible."

Cons: "We had to spend the night in Istanbul and get only on the next flight the following morning. TK airport (ground) staff that talked to us was antipathetic and it took ages to get any service. Looks like they didn't care we about the delay, nor they were trying to help us. Just kept saying we need to wait."

Pros: "We didn't crash"
Cons: "Took too long. Build a transporter!"

Pros: "I already posted my remarks above"
Cons: "Same wrote above"

Cons: "When we arrived walking to the shuttle the crew had thrown our play pen n stroller out on the walkway. They didnt take it inside with our luggage.It was checked in with all the suitcases! So luckly my son recognized it as we were walking by. Very disapointed if he hadnt noticed it we would of been out of luck. No baby bed or stroller! Why dont they take it with the luggage OR at least let you know they dont transfer them for you! Not happy"

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

Cons: "No complaints except boarding was a little hectic. It would have been better if there was more organization on who boards when and more control by staff."

Pros: "Pretty much everything except for the fact that they have no entertainment in Russian"

Pros: "I definitely recommend Turkish Airlines because of the services offered and customer service."

Pros: "It was so hot. A nightmare ! I Asked again and to turn it on. They did for few minutes at a time. Very upsetting"
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "I would definitely fly on Turkish Air again. The seats were roomy in comparison to other airlines I have flown on. The inflight entertainment was excellent in comparison as well. I thought the food and beverages were pretty good for an airline as well."
Cons: "Just the concern that people were not instructed to stay seated until the airplane came to a complete halt. People were out of their seats and getting luggage out of the overhead bins well before the plane had taxied up to the gate. Please make an announcement to keep passengers safe. Also, the cabin crew could have been a little more helpful to passengers. They kind of stood around and did nothing when a gentleman and his child got on the airplane and other people were clearly sitting in his seats. The man had to straighten out the situation with the people who were in the wrong seats. The flight crew needed to have been assertive, ask politely for people's boarding passes and taken care of the conflict, not the customer. My flight was late and I missed my connection to Seattle. Turkish Air did put us up for the night and provided meals without a hassle."

Pros: "The flight attendents were very nice & service was good."
Cons: "The seats are cramped in economy, so if you are tall it's uncomfortable flight."

Pros: "Delicious meals, friendly crew, good selection of entertainment."

Pros: "Food and beverage Entertainment"
Cons: "Waaaaay too hot on the plane. I was so uncomfortable as were serveral other people I spoke to on the plane"

Pros: "Nice little commuter plane from one destination to another. Nothing particular fancy or negative to say other than a good charter plane to get to your layover for the final flight back home."

Cons: "They lost my baggage.i got 7lb of red caviar .My red caviar deteriorated.i spend 50$ per lb which is 350$ total and Turkish airlines agents didn't help me find my luggage .in the end they pay only 100$ back for my caviar even when i tald them that i spend 350$ total . It is was Flight from Chicago to Ashgabat"

Pros: "Crew was great, movie selections were good."
Cons: "No warning or info when we hit a lot of turbulence."

Cons: "Wine program for international business class was sub-par"

Cons: "The sears are so uncofortable. Leg space tragic!!"

Pros: "It is very bad all flights been cancelled!"
Cons: "Didn't like any thing zero bad I wanna come back to the state! I'm was born in 1946 I couldn't stand on my feet any more!"

Pros: "I like the food, seats and customer service"

Pros: "Movie selection was good"
Cons: "Staff was incredibly rude. There was no last call made for the bathrooms, I'm 6 1/2 months pregnant, before they announce our descent I get up to pee. I get yelled at. I sit down, 10 minutes later the guy comes up to me and asks me if I really need to go. I said of course. He opened the bathroom for me and as soon as I sit to pee a girl is knocking bloody murder telling me they're going to land the plane and I'm taking to long. I had been in there all of 30 seconds. I finished quickly and returned to my seat. We didn't land for another 30 minutes. Worst service EVER!"

Pros: "The food was very good; crew very nice. I'd recommend this airline."

Cons: "Bathroom very dirty with odors!"

Pros: "Fast. Tasty food. Good movies. Great Service."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "We were very satisfied with the service and friendliness we will dfinitely look up turkish airlines on the future."

Pros: "The food was great, had chance to sample some Turkish cuisine. Way better food than any meal you would get from an American-based airline. Entertainment was excellent, great variety of TV shows and movies. The flight attendants were attentive and helpful. The Batman v. Superman theme was a nice touch. Decent leg room in economy class."
Cons: "Because we fly an older model 777-300ER, there wasn't a personal a/c nozzle, so it was a tad warm on the plane. They should fix that whenever the plane goes in for maintenance."

Pros: "Food tastes great. Kept me full the entire time."
Cons: "Display panel for one of our seats was broken and after asking to have it reset, staff was not attentive to make sure issue was resolved before moving on. If you're going to be on a flight that long...you want to have your entertainment, and don't want to keep bothering someone to have it work. Also seats were cramped compared to other airline planes and staff seemed to not have an issue that there were some other people on the plane drinking bottles, getting drunk and loud."

Pros: "All was fine, very professional"
Cons: "boarding messages in Frankfurt airport were not clear re which rows were to board first. Please speak a bit more clearly"

Cons: "Both my bags came back damaged--- one had the handle ripped off and the other the TSA approved look was jammed."

Pros: "My check-in experience was very bad. I was doing a business class check-in which was not at all a "business" class experience. The agent was very inexperienced and rude."

Pros: "Due to the corona19 virus I was not able to travel and the airline phone lines have been so busy that I’m not sure if I will be able to change my ticket."

Cons: "Better boarding and entertainment"

Pros: "The aircraft was barely half full."
Cons: "Delay due to fog at LHR, but this is not the fault of the airline"

Cons: "Security in Frankfurt - long lines"

Pros: "Flight departed on time. Crew were friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Boarding seem to be chaotic, no boarding by group or seat number."

Pros: "-"
Cons: "Will never use Lufthansa again"

Pros: "As previously stated hated having to go through security again"
Cons: "Chocolate"

Cons: "Well,my whole trip was an adventure! Problem with my checked in bag, so i had to pay 22 pounds extra to fit it in a connection flight and now i have to send receipt to get the refund. On my way back, there was a delay, so i missed the flight and the checked in bag"

Pros: "The crew was friendly. The seating was ok but dirty floors"

Pros: "Very Organised and punctual"

Pros: "Pilot kept us informed throughout the flight."
Cons: "Onboard services."

Pros: "Everything except delay"
Cons: "Nil"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Meals and entertainment"

Pros: "Free drinks"
Cons: "Plane land on time"

Pros: "It was not immediately apparent that boarding was in a completely different terminal which was accessible by train, so this lack of info could have cost me arriving in good time as I thought I had sufficient time. I aldo found ground staff at the customer service desk very unsympathetic and unhelpful when I asked for assistance on grounds of ill health. They were quite condescending ."
Cons: "Ground staff poor customer service"

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Very friendly crew, great seats in economy with lots of legroom."

Pros: "Evrything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The flight was adequate."
Cons: "Sandwich was extremely unappetising and there were no hot drinks. The worst thing was that in transiting from the SAA flight to the Lufthansa flight we were obliged to go through security which seems unnecessary. The security staff were awful. Bullying, rude and totally unsympathetic to the fact that having brought water from the first plane to the second plane we had to either drink it or throw it away. One guy in particular, a tall greying man evoked the worst stereotypes of brutal secret policemen. Perhaps he formerly worked for Stasi or he was having testosterone problems. Totally unacceptable behaviour."

Cons: "1hr 20 minutes late"

Pros: "great over all experiance. Don't let the other negative reviews put you off"

Pros: "The Lufthansa app provides updates on plane status and gate number, etc."
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "All"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Did manage to get priority transfer which I requested from Dubrovnik but was told. “We do not do those”"
Cons: "Rest of the flight was bearable nothing write about. Typical cheap alow cost flight"

Pros: "Ok"

Pros: "The change in seat to middle seat, different row for my wife and I was enough for me to think again about a ticket with you"

Pros: "I especially like the comfortable seats with plenty of legroom. The flight was on time - perfect!"

Pros: "See above"

Pros: "The crew was wonderful and this is consistent with my previous experiences with Lufthansa. The salami sandwich provided was actually very good."
Cons: "The slimline seats were not very comfortable. I would hesitate to fly Lufthansa's narrow bodies for flights greater than 2 hours."

Cons: "Absolutely perfect."

Pros: "The staff were all super helpful and friendly! Pleasure to fly with!"

Cons: "4/4 flights with involuntary stop-overs were delayed, causing 4 panics and 2 missed flights. Given their proclivity for busing passengers to distant planes in Herman efforts, a 50-minute allowance for changing planes, when added to the frequent Kate departures, is just not sufficient. They should acknowledge it and sell only flights that allow for 80-90 minutes in the airports that are so woefully managed (eg, Frankfurt and Munich). It’s back to BA for me!"

Pros: "the on time scheduled departure"
Cons: "the long complicated walk to terminal"

Pros: "All the staff were friendly and the complimentary food and drink snacks was lovely."
Cons: "Our flights were delayed both on the way there and back"

Cons: "Check-in process. Baggage fees."

Pros: "DID NOT LIKE MY LUGGAGE GOING MISSING! IT'S STILL MISSING AND, AFTER RECEIVING PROMISES OF DELIVERY TODAY, THERE IS NOW NO RECORD OF MY LUGGAGE!"
Cons: "DID NOT LIKE MY LUGGAGE GOING MISSING. IT'S STILL MISSING AND, AFTER RECEIVING PROMISES OF DELIVERY TODAY, THERE IS NOW NO RECORD OF MY LUGGAGE!"

Pros: "The seats and space was ok. Exit from the plane was directly opposite the passport machines and the exit."
Cons: "The flight was very late leaving meaning I arrived in London over an hour late! With knock on problems!"

Pros: "Usual good service for economy class on this airline"

Cons: "Refusal to board as our flight was a few minutes landing"

Cons: "The crew didn't seem particularly interested in helping anyone and worked hard to avoid eye contact. This was an unpleasant flight at best and given the option I will not likely fly Lufthansa again if given the option. I wish that I had better news to report from this flight. :("

Cons: "None of the flights arrived on schedule. That caused other problems. Overall the trip was terrible. Not sure if I will fly lufthansa again nor recommen."

Pros: "Darned site more comfortable than the first leg of the journey."
Cons: "Tell your passengers they need hiking boots to get from main concourse to B terminal!"

Pros: "Staff was very friendly and caring."
Cons: "No entertainment and half sandwich with some cookies was the only food we got."

Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "They held the gate for us as we got there about 14 minutes before departure."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "Clean, friendly environment, friendly staff, even though a bit bossy, but that's the German way (which I am too)."
Cons: "Little space. and NO WIFI. This is really no longer adequate in 2017. In the US, practically all domestic flights have wifi now."

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

Pros: "Check in process was simple and efficient. The crew on the plane were polite and friendly. Flight arrived early."

Pros: "Information sharing by pilots and crew. Economy class leg room is good."
Cons: "All good up to the level"

Pros: "Everything works and quick to get to destination."

Cons: "Half the screens were not working - crew were made aware but nothing was done. Vegetarian choices were poor to non-existent ; I witnessed crew insist to a passenger that there were no vegetarian options! They finally cobbled something together for him but not a pleasant experience"

Pros: "very nice crew"
Cons: "my baggage was lost"

Cons: "I was seated next to the restroom, which is not a pleasant experience for an international flight."

Pros: "Crew were great"

Cons: "The seats were a bit hard"

Pros: "Good beverage service."

Cons: "People with short connection are affected by the 15 to 25 minutes delay."

Cons: "Delays, took my hand luggage into the hold,"

Pros: "Cabin facilities"
Cons: "They didn’t bring one of my bags"

Pros: "Crew was fantastic."
Cons: "This was the most narrow airplane seat I’ve ever experienced. So uncomfortable."

Pros: "The crew was great but the seat wasn't as comfortable and didn't have much leg room."

Cons: "The check in desk was late opening & the carry on luggage size was smaller than advertised on their website, so it had to be put in the hold. Open on time to prevent less stress to travelers & give more accurate information about cabin luggage."

Pros: "very attentive crew"
Cons: "Only ham sandwiches on offer! I'm not demanding and would have been happy with cheese."

Pros: "The seat was spacious and the concept of the evening meal being the lighter option was innovative and well thought out"

Pros: "The leg room, was surprisingly roomy"
Cons: "The food and that there was no entertainment."

Pros: "Decent meal (warm Pasta all'arrabbiata), nice little muffin for dessert and standard drinks (coffee & tea were a bonus, as they didn't serve any on a similar flight, from Barcelona to Amsterdam), friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "Poor timing - no reason for a 40 minute delay at take off (plane was fully boarded in time) Old aircraft, shabby, dirty and cramped seats. Coming from my connecting flight from Barcelona, I could clearly tell the different in the quality (and cleanliness) of the aircrafts."

Pros: "Left ontime and service was excellent."

Pros: "Smooth boarding, clean seats/plane, nice small aircraft (2 rows x 2 seats each), surprisingly spacious (more legroom than expected - and I’m 6’2”)."

Pros: "Pleasant flight"

Cons: "OLD plane without comfort or entertainment"

Cons: "Flight delayed by one hour which meant I missed by train at Southampton by 10 minutes and subsequent bus connect home. Next bus would have been 2 hours later so 45 minute walk home from train station. Didn't bother with food offering, put off by that supplied from Hannover to Schiphol."
