Cons: "Not enough leg room, knees hurt difficult to sleep. Also booked flight 3 months in advance so we could sit together as family. At gate they put my husband 20 rows separate from us. Surprised by this, I thought Delta was a better airline. Staff on plane was courteous and worked hard for entire trip."

Because our next connection flight (ALSO THROUGH LUFTHANSA) was in 40 mins per their booking, we arrived at the gate just prior to take off to find our flight had been given away and we had “missed” that flight. As a result, we were placed on a flight 4 hours later, resulting in a dangerous attempt at reaching our hotel at 11pm. Will never fly Lufthansa again."

Pros: "Seat back tv’s"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 3 hours, food was mediocre at best"
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."

Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "Nothing everything was great!"
Pros: "It was short."
Pros: "The crew was attentive."
Cons: "Boarding crew in EWR insisted that my small carry on had to be checked in. MANY passengers were able to bring on board luggage that was larger and clearly heavier.

Cons: "Poor service"
Cons: "No WiFi, seats had no cushion"

Pros: "Lufthansa is a friendly airline but was unable to help with our problem because I had booked through Kayak."
Cons: "When I presented my passport at the counter to receive my boarding pass, I was told my passport needed to be over 3 months before expiration. It expires January 14, 2019. It is not written on the passport, nor mentioned during booking. I’ve been to Latvia four times previously and never heard this requirement. I cancelled the flight with Lufthansa who said I must call Kayak who gave me another number to call and that number then sent an email that said there was a $350 rebooking fee for each ticket, IF they decided I was eligible for rebooking. Yes, we got a great rate, but looks like wasted $ now. I will book directly with the airline in the future to ensure the ability to rebook."
Pros: "Best part was how Lufthansa took care of travellers whose connection time was short. They had ground crew waiting and who escorted us through customs, and then drove us to the gate. This is how passengers should be treated. ~ Excellent movie selection ~ Great flight attendants"
Pros: "Great ride in a big plane!"
Cons: "Flight was late and it seemed like every time we turned a corner we had to go through security again! Leg room in economy must be very difficult for a tall person...no leg room!"
Cons: "Food quality"
Pros: "Good customer service"
Cons: "Seat was not comfortable and food was not great"
Pros: "Everything except that cookie!"
Cons: "I liked everything except the cookie. It reminded me of the low quality supermarket American cookies, way too sweet and flavorless. They used to give little sandwiches, excellent in quality!!! A cookie is good too, but a better one would do a great difference! It was early morning, who would eat a sugary chocolate chip cookie for breakfast? But otherwise, I would fly with Lufthansa again in a heartbeat!!! Thank you!!!!!!"
Pros: "Flight directly to Tampa"
Cons: "I did not like the passenger reclining their seat all the way back. this left me with no room to relax on a 10 hr flight"
Cons: "Very little leg room, when perso in front of you reclines it’s impossible to open table"
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."
Cons: "One of the crew members was rude to me"
Pros: "I managed to get a seat in economy class upstairs on the Airbus A380-800, next to the window. Each window seat has a locker to stow all your in-flight stuff in and there is lots of legroom. I was impressed - that's saying a lot for a Boeing-lover. Crew was very attentive and always available."
Cons: "Boarding could have been better organized."
Cons: "boarding was late and chaotic and no apology from the airline"
Pros: "I enjoyed the sleep."
Cons: "No enough leg room for a slender Man of 5 foot 7 inches."
Pros: "On time-well organized!"
Cons: "Horrible experience. Stranded for 3 hours inside stationary flight, 4 hours in a long queue. Very very poorly managed. I slept on a chair in the cold weather. Atleast make arrangements for bad situations, apparently I was booked on another flight but they made me stand in a 4 hour long queue to find that out. Kiosk outside showed I was put in no flight. One of my worst experiences and rest assured if I’m given a chance I will never choose Lufthansa again."
Pros: "The movie selection"
Cons: "They ran out of food- I didn’t have dinner on that flight. We were almost 2 hours late to Dubai. I was irritated to say the least."
Pros: "Crew service and positive attitude"
Pros: "The crew, again, was fabulous. Boarding, once the stuffy wait was over, went quickly. They attended to every request with smiles, gentle humor, and without delay. Nonstop movies were a great help on this second of two long legs, and it was really nice to have control over pausing, replaying portions, and jumping ahead past sex scenes. A 10-sec forward button like the back button would be very useful to skip nudity scenes, there were families around us! The trip was as comfortable as it could be, given close proximity of seats. Appreciated the pillows and blankets, and frequent water and drinks."
Cons: "Boarding was pretty terrible - no instructions, go left, give up the water bottle we JUST BOUGHT even though it was still unopened (it had to be "sealed", still no idea what that means because the seal wasn't broken), and the waiting room was very stuffy! Seemed we should have been able to get air...? Boarding went quickly, though, thankfully. Breakfast was pretty bad, one of us just skipped it once opened because it was so unappetizing. Would have liked movie ratings to appear in the descriptions to save the risk of getting started on lame shows."

Cons: "The tightness of the seats!"
Cons: "We couldn't check in for the next flight when we departed from Oslo. Disappointed we had to wait until arriving in Frankfurt. Something about not being partner airlines."
Pros: "Our first flight was late. We were met at the gate immediately after landing and were brought individually and directly to our next flight behind the scene, including passport control. Excellent."
Cons: "I had booked both flights at least 9 month in advance. Was not given a choice of seats for the short flight. In the past that has not been an issue. This time the four of us, including 2 children, were seated in the back of the plane separate from each other. Not cool."

Pros: "This Transavia Airlines is not good at all."

Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "I am so grateful to have been provided delicious and filling vegan meals on this long flight.

Hopefully that will become a reality someday very soon! Oh, and also the crew on this flight was exceptionally kind and helpful. Thank you so much!"
Cons: "I did not enjoy the turbulence, which I suppose is unavoidable. More importantly, I felt quite guilty about the greenhouse gas emissions of my flight. I have decided to cut down on my air travel as much as possible as a way of reducing my carbon footprint."
Pros: "Seats were very comfortable, food was excellent, the staff was very nice, cabin was quite and roomy."
Cons: "No outlets to charge digital devices, and need more bathrooms on board. I was able to sleep most of the 11 hour flight so I did not take advantage of the entertainment."
Pros: "The boarding was easy and you didn't have to wait inline for that long"
Cons: "KLM needs to upgrade the entertainment. It was very hard to see the images on the screen. The planes that KLM uses are old and they sure need to be upgraded."
Pros: "Good services!"
Pros: "Really friendly staff. Great service"
Cons: "Actually the Welcome on board announcement. The part where they special welcome loyalty program members. I do not get that... I am an explorer holder my self, but really?? so other paying customers are not as welcome. This is leftovers from the older days.."

I could not store my belongings near me. No power outlet to charge my devices for my own entertainment on a 7 hour flight. Dealing with constant traffic for the bathroom. I sat in the middle seat between two hours other men. It was a constant struggle arm space. After 7hours in the air I could not wait to get off the plane. If I didn't actually pay an extra €60 for the seat I may not feel bad but I feel like I might have been better off without paying for the "upgrade""

Cons: "Food was not very good Tasteless and rubbery"
Pros: "The flight crew were kind, polite, and attentive."
Cons: "Bussing to the plane was a bit odd, but the crew remained organized in doing so. When we arrived to the plane, they had both entrances open so that those sitting near the rear of the plane would enter from the back. Plane was a little chilly, but I have come to expect that one most flights."

During this time there was poor communication and terrible service. The inbound flight was also delayed for almost two hours and the same story of bad communication and worse service . I have been flying for a long time with RJ and I can say for certainty that its one of the worst airlines out there. I kept my hope all these years till I finally gave up.

Pros: "Crew members were very nice to an old lady and i saw how well they took care of her"
Cons: "The agency to which kyak has directed me to purchase the tickets. They have lots of restrictions that could have turned my trip bad.

Cons: "Staff were unfriendly and unhelpful"
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding process, nice person at check-in counter"

I was sitting in the emergency exit row and, during takeoff, the plane made a horrible, howling/whining noise that I've never heard before. Everyone was looking around and fearful. I fly often and this was the kind of noise when you wonder "is this where it all ends?" Not sure if it was the engine just outside or the emergency exit not being fully sealed but it was the first time in a long time that I've been fearful on a plane."
Pros: "The price a"
Cons: "The crew was very rude. the boarding was done by new staff, they look like Saudis, he didn't know anything and took half an hour too make the boarding, there was a long queue behind us, and it was cleared by an Asian staff who was very fast.

Pros: "The service in Amman Airport was a good one."
Cons: "The competitive prices with other Airlines are not all the time available. hope it will be close to others so i can keep flying only with RJ."
Cons: "The flight was originally delayed one hour and then all of a sudden there was an emails saying it had departed close to the original time. Everyone was confused and they never fixed the departure board. It showed the flight before was delayed and ours had departed but really it was the opposite. No one had any information. We departed hours later with still no concrete information, we just had to follow the people on our flight."
Pros: "First, RJ is a great airline, service is always good. Second, plane was a 787 which is the best in several ways including cabin ventilation and humidity."
Cons: "Why doesn't the new Queen Alia terminal have boarding through gates, you still have to take a bus to the plane."
Pros: "When we first booked our trip from New York to Abu Dhabi with a stop-over in Amman our layover was scheduled to last 4.5 hours. This was on the outside of acceptable, but for the price... we booked. After booking the airline made a schedule change which lengthened our layover to 8.5 hours; totally unacceptable... except... we had no choice since between the time of our initial booking till our notification of the scheduling change fares had increased by a good 20% or more. Rebooking simply wasn't a viable option financially. Fortunately, Royal Jordanian took care of us. When we arrived into Amman I asked on of the flight attendants if she knew of any earlier flights we might be able to be put on. She directed us to the Royal Jordanian passenger assistance station. We went there but were told their were no earlier flights... HOWEVER... the young woman at the help desk went above and beyond by issuing us a room voucher for the airport hotel - including a hotel lunch buffet voucher and shuttle service between the terminal and hotel. Furthermore, because we weren't leaving the airport property, we were issues free "layover visas!" This was our second time using Royal Air Jordanian and we will use them again."

Pros: "Crew was amazing!"
Cons: "In flight entertainment"
Cons: "Seat antiquated, food was more economy than business"
Pros: "A very comfortable flight (with a full plane and in economy). The crew was clear, gave good instructions and were available to help. Even though the flight started bumpy, they will still able to complete service on a short flight."
Cons: "Despite my status with Star Alliance (Gold...the highest), I still was not allowed to take my roller carry on into the plane. There was plenty of space as they were allowing NO one in economy to take a roller carry on. Despite requesting it twice (I was at the end of a long, 3 day journey from the US to Harare) I was denied. This was unnecessary and spiteful to those of us who fly frequently."
Cons: "The boarding process was just a free for all. Could not get tv to work, no help from crew. It would have been nice to get our passport control forms on the plane, instead of at airport. Other flights comeng in had theirs."

Pros: "direct flight"

Cons: "Inflight was bad,technical issues very often"
Cons: "Delays. Hadvto rush to catch connecting flight"
Pros: "Great flight great service good food"
Cons: "Good day. My wife and I were supposed to board on the above flight from Maputo to Johannesburg at 11:30am. For some odd reason the flight wad delayed and the plane only departef at 03:15pm. We had a connection flight from Johannesburg to Luanda (DT578 TAAG Angolan Airlines) wich we nearly missed. My luggage didn't arrive in Luanda. So far nothing wrong. Delays are normal. The major problem was the ground crew in Maputo who didn't provide proper information on time. Furthermore after landing in JHB no protection to late passengers in transit was provided. When disembarking I approached a lady at the bottom of the stairs and she didn't have our names on the list so we were on our own trying to find our way through the endless cue at the transfers counter. We made it but I'm sure Hussein Bolt would have lost a race against us. Shame SAA!!! This was the last airline in Africa I would expect a such unprofessional treatment. My ETKT number is 1187098323350. My name is Fernando Macedo and my wife's is Elsa Amaral. My cell number is +258843125748. Sincerely Fernando Macedo"

Cons: "Hated the meal, hated not having power, hated the uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "The food and entertainment selection. Wine selection better on inbound flight than outbound from Accra."
Cons: "Disinterested affectwhilst serving; not offering drinks othe than the initial one. It is nice to be offered more. Coats from women not collected automatically as for the men. The PA sound was so poor I couldn’t hear most of the announcements. That is a potential safety hazard ! On my outbound trip the seat belt was faulty: another safety hazard."
Pros: "Direct flight was great, and staff was very friendly"

Cons: "Too crowded."
Pros: "The crew was nice, were so easy to talk to and they were so hospitable."
Cons: "But I do not have appetite of boarding it again due to the rudeness that I was shown by those who were at the terminal 5. I was coming from Washington State. I boarded a flight from Washington to San Fransisco then from there to New York but none of these charged me the carry on bag. When I reached at New York they said your laws (south african airways) does not allow a person to have carry on bag and laptop bag. At this time I had already extra lagguage which I paid $200 and they told me to pay another $200 dollars for carry on bag. They were so rude to me they told me to leave the bag if I do not have money. I was stranded. I tried to tell them that I boarded two flight which they did not charge me. They said the flights has different laws. But when I was going to New York i used the same flight with carry on lagguge and my laptop bag. So I paid $400. When I entered the flight I was shocked to find that almost everyone had a carryon bag. I felt that they did that to me because I was black and they wanted to find advantage on me. I was so stressful because I had no where to go. I used Delta flight when i was coming to new york but I have never experienced this charges. Now international flight experiencing this horrible situation. . True paying $400 because I had carry on bag?? Am still stressful they took a lot to me. They did not gave me receipt. I asked them to give me receipt all what they were answering me was like "just go." I have never been in a such situation. That is why I said I do not have appetite of boarding South African airways again. Is it true that your laws doesn't allow people to have carryon luggage? If it is true why some customers had the carry on luggage?? my carry was small it was not 23 pounds. Am still feeling pain for what they did to me. I know the name of the woman who was rude. If you treat passengers like that, there will be no good. The complain customer."

Thankfully this was a red eye, so I slept for most of the 16hr flight, however I woke up with about 5 hours left and wanted to watch a movie and my tv didn't work properly. Resolution is poor on all the screens and the sound wasn't working properly with the headphones. After trouble shooting by switching seats and sealing out headphones several times, I gave up and read a book."

Pros: "Crew members were great! Food was top and great wine list to accompany that."
Cons: "Very limited choice on series as well as the movies are outdated. Also the size of the toilets it is a little cubicle where people can barely wash themselves properly in such a long flight. For such a long leg the seats should be more comfortable at the Business class"
Pros: "Breakfast was ok."
Cons: "Flight was very late leaving Accra, and no reason or explanation was given. As a result, some people barely made their connecting flights from Washington, Dulles airport."
Pros: "Smooth boarding process leaving Dulles. I will continue to do my international flying through Dulles airport."
