Cons: "Nothing as such"

Cons: "I wish there was more legroom."
Pros: "Good selection of movies. Nice staff- some of which were able to handle difficult customers better than others."
Cons: "Both flights to Athens and returning to New York were very delayed. As a result, passengers were annoyed and staff members looked obviously stressed as well. On the whole my impression is that this airline keeps up appearances very well but is in fact somewhat disorganized."
Pros: "Nice travel from Dallas to Dubai and I am happy."
Cons: "I am a 76 yr old traveller, did not get the change in flight schedule until I booked my flight. I was at Dubai airport for over 12 hours waited for the 3AM flight that took another 14 hours. Very stressful and tiring. There was not even a proper accommodation for this very long wait between flights. This experience will be told to all my friends and trust me it will be a very bad, negative endorsement."
Cons: "food service"

Cons: "Bad smell - probably somebody had vomited on a previous flight"
Pros: "- Excellent entertainment. New movies in various languages."
Cons: "- Crew not very attentive with infant and infant needs (i.e. bassinet). - Only 2 full meals and 1 snack for a 15 hours flight. First meal (breakfast) was served about 2-3 hours after take-off. Flight took off at 10 am so perhaps first meal should have been lunch. - Heard another passenger requesting veg. meal but crew said they don't have any extras and only serve special meals for those who request before. For a flight in which 60-70% of passengers are Indians, some extra vegetarian meals should be available (for those who do not know how to book it in advance)."
Pros: "Highly recommend Emirates"
Pros: "Overall ok"
Cons: "Food options for AVML or VML pretty sad for options , taste and service too. even after ordering AVML all across the cabin crew was going thru major issues with finding the food for me for AVML food got served after they served everyone on the flight. lot of effort made by the crew but cant blame them for it. Indian food / Vegetarian meal / Asian vegetarian Meal options are varied and can be filtered to basic but classic food options that can make not just me but there are lot of people like me have a good experience with food. even the fruit platter ordered was not appealing."
Cons: "Nothing everything is good"
Pros: "Very nice check in, because the people weren't rude. They accepted my luggage and gave me my passes."
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "They boarded us very fast."
Cons: "The food is same"

Pros: "Everything...food and staffs were great"
Pros: "A380 was superb. Really enjoyed being on-board of that aircraft"
Cons: "Dubai - Cebu leg. They managed to lose my suitcase and my understanding is that was done since the flight was full. I would appreciate if they didn't leave my suitcase in Dubai."
Pros: "The staff was very attentive and helpful."
Cons: "The process incase of any delays was very slow. We were on the flight for around 24 hours. I would like to request some kind of remuneration for the inconvenience caused."
Pros: "I was expecting something similar to last year. Unfortunately, my screen did not work and when I switched seats the seat would not recline properly. On the flight back from DXB-MCO they ran out of lamb only had chicken."
Cons: "Please see above"
Cons: "The service in business class was extremely poor. There was 1 male flight attendant who was extremely rude and refused to help when there were problems with the entertainment center. Several of the monitors/remote controls were not working. The lay out in the business class prevents you from getting up and out to go to the restroom when the person next to you is lying down and sleeping. The seats recline in a way that are not comfortable. The feet are still downwards. Overall, this plane's business class was not worth the money. I expect much more from Emirates."
Pros: "Emirates is always excellent however the crew were not very engaging"
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "My bag never made it with me into DMM. Even though it was a single non-stop flight, my bag didn't make into Dammam with me!! I don't know what might be the reason!!"
Cons: "I didn't like the way they were talking to me about the strict rules on luggage weight limit. They asked to pay 30 dollars for one extra kg and even on the carry on bags. The staff who seemed to be a manager in Korea was telling me to leave behind everything as they are only allowing me total of 7kgs to carry on which includes my laptop (3kg already) and a small handbag! They are literally asking you to just carry your laptop, magazine and a toothbrush! Never seen this strict and stinge rules before. And they didn't even check my carry on weight when boarding after...after giving up my gifts to friends which were not worth paying extra 30 dollars! According to their seat allocation people who sat next to me seemed to be a double or triple size of me (No offence to these passengers) and I could not eat my meal properly because I had no room to move my arm. I asked politely to a crew to change my seat but they said it is full and gave me a cup of orange juice! How nice! I will discourage people to spend extra money on Emirates because you might not get the premium service you pay for!!"
Pros: "On time Large LCD in each seat back They kept the public announcements to a minimum"
Cons: "It took asking 5 crew members and 2 hours to fix one of our screens that wasn't working. Apparently there were other displays that did not work either so they reset everybody's LCDs. The food was bland"
Pros: "The aircraft was barely half full."
Cons: "Delay due to fog at LHR, but this is not the fault of the airline"
Pros: "Big aircraft made it a smooth flight"
Cons: "crew and knowledge on parent control for video, kids safety jacket not distributed and no knowledge or help on connecting flights and no knowledge on car seat use in flight (i was told it was NOT safe to have the child in the car seat for take off and landing)"
Cons: "I was at the end of a long flight, so exhausted and feel sea sick. I cannot give good comments for this since it was short but a little bumpy flight , i almost throw up at the end."
Cons: "Canceled flight"
Cons: "Food and seats"
Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "Nothing everything was great!"
Pros: "crew was good food was good"
Cons: "Went First Class. What a joke! Coach seats & service. Only difference is they leave the middle seat empty. This appears to be the European standard (we flew on 3 different airlines) for 1st Class within Europe flights. Save your money, fly coach within Europe."
Pros: "It was really nice having the bassinet for our little one."
Cons: "My wife encountered a rude attendant after simply getting up and asking for water."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient. Everything else was average."
Cons: "With the exception of one Asian cabin crew, others were cold. Food has worsened on Lufthansa. Portion and quality are not as good as 1 year ago. I find the seat average in comfort for premium economy. If only the seat would move forward, I keep sliding off it. Cathay Pacific has a much better seat."
Cons: "All great"
Pros: "Standard flight and comfort."
Cons: "Food was absolutely beyond horrible...and the crew would run instead of walk down aisles to wherever their dedtination was."
Cons: "No WiFi, seats had no cushion"
Pros: "All were OK."
Pros: "The food and drink were the only two enjoyable moments of this flight."
Cons: "The crew in Cluj airport could not care less about getting the plane boarded and departed on time. For 20 minutes crew stood around in the airport talking to each other and using their cellphones. Finally the transport bus was loaded only to have the bus driver get out, and talk to another employee while simultaneously using his phone. No information was given for the delay and the plane was boarded at time of departure. This careless and unbothered attitude resulted in a missed connecting flight for my partner and I. We were completely unassisted by crew on the plane and ended up having to wait 24hours for our next flight home. Absolutely disgusted by the service provided from Cluj to Munich. I would seriously consider another airline before booking again with Lufthansa for this route."
Pros: "Short flight so no entertainment, but got a continental breakfast anyway. Good cofeee. Flight on time."
Cons: "There was no downside."
Pros: "The whole trip went smoothly. The price was right. There was a very bad storm in Charlotte before departure. Lufthansa made a delay, and I was very happy about that decision. They were very informative about connections, and emailed important information. Friendly, competent staff!"
Cons: "Food quality"
Pros: "Good customer service"
Cons: "Seat was not comfortable and food was not great"
Cons: "The first flight for this trio was cancelled .. stop with automated cron jobs"
Pros: "frequent passing out of water and juice; very good dinner; cheerful hostesses; choice of video entertainment"
Pros: "Crew was hospitable and flight was clean."
Cons: "We paid extra to have a bassinet as we were traveling with a baby. The entire row (a family) behind us was very sick, coughing, sneezing, and blowing their noses the whole flight. As we were concerned for our daughters health, we asked the flight attendants if we could lmove to the bulkhead that was open at the front of the plane. They wanted to charge us $500 EACH to move, even though the seats were open. One of the flight attendants even commented how terrible it was for our baby to have a row of sick people behind us, yet they refused to move us. Fast forward, our daughter ended up getting sick during our trip to Florence, and now my husband is sick. As such, we’ve had to miss out on things during our vacation. It would not have been difficult to move us to empty seats in the front of the plane, so we could use the bassinet we paid for. This small gesture would have made our flight and our trip much better."
Pros: "Comfort and space"
Cons: "Plane was scheduled to depart at 10:30 and didn't leave ground until 11:40, unacceptable."
Pros: "Flight crew, including air-hostesses were very polite, accomodating, and helpful. Entertainment system consisted of a big screen LED."
Pros: "See above. The same applies."
Cons: "See above. The same applies."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "This was an emergency trip to see my mother who was in the hospital. The flight was delayed so I had no option but to board the next day since I wouldn't be able to make it to the connecting flight in Frankfurt. They couldn't give me another connecting flight since it was all full. Because I booked my ticket only hours before my flight, they said it might not be possible to fulfil my meal request since there's a 24 hours cut off. However, now I had to cone back to the airport and take the next days flight which gave the airline more than 24 hours from my original meal request. I still did not get the meal I requested, the crew didn't know about it and didn't have any to spare. This was my first time flying Lufthansa, I probably won't try it again."
Pros: "On time and good service"
Cons: "Requested for Hindu vegetarian meal by call and was informed we would receive on flight. Got on flight to find that Hindu vegetarian does not exist. Starved on both legs of flight. That is almost 24 hours. Plane should keep extras and customer service should give correct information."
Pros: "5 Star: Comfort 4 Star: Crew 5 Star: Boarding 5 Star: Entertainment 5 Star: Food.. One of the best flights of 2017 by far. Premium Economy will deliver the basics of luxury comfort."
Pros: "Very polite and patient staff. They are getting professional. The food is great for airline food. Very comfortable. But the movie touch screens need improvement."
Cons: "Touch screens need improvement."
Pros: "On time-well organized!"
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Joseph was great!"

Pros: "The food (breakfast) was great. The plane was clean. The whole operation was very orderly."
Cons: "flight was delayed. personal works very slow"
Pros: "Didn't try the food."

Pros: "Staff seemed super friendly and happy to help. Also got plenty of drinks!"
Pros: "Superb service thru Lufthansa"
Cons: "Long wait, but it was cheap so it ofset it"
Pros: "Even though the flight lasted 12 hours, it was enjoyable. I feel like the crew put the best effort in order to make passengers feel comfortable. They served two meals and two snacks. Beverages were distributed many times. The leg room and the entertaining system were great. I would love to take another flight with this company in the future."
Cons: "I cannot think of anything."
Pros: "The lady on the counter was very friendly & helped me to rebook another flight to Frankfurt early next morning."
Cons: "Flighing from Nashville to Washington for 30 minutes & than have to turn around due to weather."
Pros: "The crew and in flight experience were excellent."
Cons: "Both Lufthansa and United's boarding announcements fail to account for passengers' impatience and neglect of boarding group procedure. Lufthansa doesn't clearly identify when un-prioritized groups should begin to board. United should make clear that unspecified group members attempting to board prematurely will be held to the back of the queue for their appropriate group."
