Cons: "Make fare more competitive with other airlines."
Pros: "crew responding to the request, supportive"
Cons: "food was just ok, not excellent. movie selection was not really top notch, just so-so..."
Cons: "Had a broken seat it didn’t recline...."
Pros: "Good performance of ground staff in kabul"
Cons: "On time flight not delay"
Pros: "Pilot does not waste time chatting. Still too much chatter (interrupting movies) but less than on other airlines."
Cons: "Entertainment system is Windows based and designed by a moron, especially CC behavior. Shows ads (LOTS) before each movie. Pops up window chrome every time you dismiss PA announcements. Very few movies/TVs (even those from the US) have CC."
Pros: "Latam could not issue a boarding pass at Santiago. This led to long waiting at Brazilian immigration checkpoint. Not having a Visa kept me.from entering the immigration and security wont let me in without a boarding pass. security supervisor had to contact Emirates ground staff who escorted me."
Pros: "My mom was very happy with food and specially the open seats."
Pros: "Excellent food and serving"
Pros: "The attendant helped find me a vegan option at the last second."
Pros: "Outstanding and very helpful service"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Leg room and friendly staff"
Cons: "Child’s meal does not have vegetarian option, this must be included as it makes not sense in not having this option."
Pros: "Good choice of entertainment."
Cons: "Food can be improved. A little bit of innovation is needed."
Cons: "I paid extra to have an exit row for this long flight. Just before taxiing a man moved seats into the exit row seat next to me (not paying for it like I had) and was intrusive and sprawling out over into my space the entire very long flight. I am extremely unhappy about this and the willingness to allow him to move seats that I had to pay extra for and then left me zero comfort on the flight."
Pros: "I liked the service provided."
Cons: "Would like to see decent vegetarian food options. Also please introduce some variance in your menu. the menu has been the same in the last 3 flights."
Pros: "Service is very excellent."
Pros: "Emirates is a true Customer Service oriented airline. It is a relief to know that in this age of carriers that charge you a lot and treat you like you are paying a bus ticket there are airlines that still know the key to success. Boarding was fine and not dependent on local personalities. You can tell the company cares about training. The food and entertainment is excellent. Seats are still a little smaller but they try and make up with it with other perks. Flight crew was polite, smiling, and accommodating no matter the time. Pillows, blankets, snacks, etc. all given without having to ask or be charged. We were also given these little self care packs with toothbrush & paste, eye pillow, socks, and earplugs! Overall it made a long flight over night very comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "seating availability Food service"
Pros: "Flight was quite empty and boarding was swift and easy."
Pros: "Beautiful, clean aircraft with multilingual staff-great entertainment choices"
Cons: "Nothing's ng"
Pros: "The service from the airline Emirates, very nice and friendly staff. The price was under my budget and easy to purchase. Alerts for flight, time lines and updates for Airports after the Huricane Irma. Thanks! Javier"
Cons: "The seat that was booked is stand by seat and so much problems arose. Last missing the flight."
Cons: "Booked an aisle seat in early April. Emirates reassigned me a middle seat, this on a 13.25 hour flight! Refused to rebook me back to original even though I showed them my original booking. Never Emirates again! Ever."
Cons: "Provided a very poor quality hotel, i missed extremely important business meeting in beirut"
Pros: "The service was wonderful"
Pros: "Times were great! Food was decent for airline food comfortable seats great selection of movies"
Cons: "I liked everything"
Cons: "Flight was 15 hours long. Vegetarian food is not provided. We were unable to select food options online before boarding."
Pros: "I loved it."
Pros: "Great flight even in economy! Two good meals, personal entertainment with close to a 100 movies to select from and great service by the crew."
Pros: "The individual were uniform polite and professional, even in the economy section of the craft which is not always the case in some airlines. Boarding and deplaning via two entry / access points; something all airlines should seek to do."
Cons: "Things like the plane layout which focuses on maximizing seating space over common space like toilets (not enough) and cross craft aisles so crew and passengers could do more than just one thing at a time; issues the crew had nothing to do with. Rather plane designers being pushed to maximize seats over all else."
Cons: "Very late. Caused us to miss outlet rental car. Left us stranded at the airport."
Pros: "spacious aisles, friendly stewardesses"
Cons: "4 hour delay and a missed connecting flight because of that delay."

Pros: "Great lounge for business class. Great staff. Good food on plane in business class."
Cons: "Long lay over between flights"
Pros: "I liked the meals"
Cons: "It was hard to push my chair back"
Pros: "It's a classy, professional operation with new, comfortable, very well-equipped planes, high-end entertainment options, an international crew, and many small comforts that really add up to a better experience."
Pros: "Iv only every travelled 1st class before and this time had to travel business. I hadn't realised the drop in standard would be so apparent . The staff are not as professinal , attentive and didn't seem very organised ."
Cons: "The food was below any standard iv ever flown and was quite frankly disappointed with it only the stale dry scones but the flight as whole . I voiced my concerns at the time and was apologised to . This however caused me to feel uncomfortabld and out in the spot ."
Pros: "The flight crew is great, the plane is modern and the in-flight entertainment is awesome"
Cons: "Food quantities could be more. In such long haul flights, individuals line myself who do not sleep in focus tend to get hungrier. Boarding at Dubai has become a mess ever since Trump instituted a restriction on carry-on electronic devices for flights to the US originating from certain middle eastern counties."
Pros: "Staff was courteous."
Cons: "We were not made aware to go get snacks from the serving areas ourselves. We waited to be served. Finally figured it out. The seat near the exits were close to the pantry so could not sleep due to noises of the trays and serving atea. Those seats should cost cheaper ."
Cons: "I have used Kayak many times but I am afraid I may not use it anymore. We booked tickets to India from Boston few months ago. We booked for Emirates. But we got the tickets issued through web jet. With the recent travel ban we wanted to reschedule our tickets. And then the whole problem unravelled. We called kayak to reschedule. Kayak team said its not their responsibility and forwarded me to Web jet. We called emirates directly but they said since we booked tickets via Web jet they will be able to help. So we called Web jet and they charged a hefty 250-300$ extra to what Emirates would have charged for difference in pay. They said its basically the processing fee. We were disappointed as the reason for postponing was not in our hands, and the fact that kayak passed the buck to Web jet in dealing with the issue. If we had bought our tickets directly from Emirates the process would have been very smooth."
Cons: "There was a long bus journey at the airport in Dubai for a flight from Dubai to Lahore. All passengers including myself were very surprised. When the bus stopped neat the air craft for boading, ground staff were seen collecing heavy hand carry luggage from the passengers for putting them in a separate compartment for taking as a cargo, which caused another delay in boading. Old air craft on this route should be replanced. Before boading from Dubai to Lahore, I checked my flight status several times on flight information screen but my flight was not shown on it. Later, I checked on hand touch screen and came to know that gate was B2."
Cons: "Missed flight because checked bags took to long to get back"
Pros: "Nice flight. Nice staff. Nice food. Nice environment. Thanks to Emirates."
Cons: "All flights were delayed Boarding experience is not that great Not sufficient leg room, so cramped up Food was very average"
Cons: "My baggage was ripped and the material inside was damaged. Never expected that from Emirates."
Pros: "Service, comfort, food, wine, all outstanding."
Pros: "On time. As comfortable as coach can be. Crew was friendly and helpful. The bag checkthrough/transfer from flydubai to emirates worked fine."
Cons: "Cabin temperature could have been warmer. The seat backtouch screens are aging a bit. They don't track well on the edges of the screen."
Pros: "Everything was Great !!"

None

Pros: "Not one thing about my experience."
Cons: "The alertness of the staff, the boarding process, the knowledge of the staff. Not breaking my luggage!"
Pros: "Wasn't awake, can't say"
Cons: "Probably it would be nice to have a bit bigger screen with general information about the flight and local time"
Pros: "I was fortunate the person in front didn’t lean back"
Cons: "On Swiss website I added Rehe preference for a lactose free meal — but none were on the plane. The economy seats are close enough together I needed to hold my book to the side to read."
Pros: "comfortable seating, friendly helpful crew, good food"
Cons: "sometimes too cold sometimes too warm"
Cons: "70’ late on a 45’ flight"
Pros: "My husband was on a business trip and his company booked him in business class. Economy was overbooked they cave me a free upgrade so I could sit with him!"
Cons: "Cost of extra bag. Also size limit for overhead carryon"
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour so we were rebooked. Spent extra day in Zurich, and missed our hotel reservation in San Francisco. San Francisco was not our final destination. We had to fly for more than 24 hours in one day(time change). We missed part of our family function. It's been an exhausting trip"
Cons: "The food was really bad. I prebooked an AISLE seat and of course I was given the WINDOW!"
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "i liked the food and the crew. they were nice."
Cons: "the flight was good. nothing to not like."
Pros: "All very comfortable"
Cons: "It was delayed"
Pros: "I was flying business class so staff, food, etc was excellent"
Cons: "I do not understand why arriving to checkin with 90 min, on a DIRECT flight, in business class they can decide to not lead luggage at ZRH. We had to wait for all luggage to come out, then go to lost and found, what is more puzzling is that then they tell you the luggage will be loaded on next flight, arrive at night, but will not deliver it until after 3PM on next day. This is flying business class. Swiss begins to feel like a low cost"
Pros: "The crew was nice, they served small sandwiches that were tasty, and the entertainment was average with only magazines, but it was a only 1 1/2 flight."
Cons: "The legroom is cramped a bit."
Pros: "friendly ,respectful, helpful,informative"
Cons: "the very long layovers.i did not enjoy complications to find a place to rest between long flights."

Cons: "Boarding and in-flight experience were excellent."
Pros: "Comfortable flight. The crew was very nice and amenities were fine."
Cons: "My luggage was lost. I had to wait in line forever to file a report. Luckily it was sent to my hotel later that evening."
Pros: "Polite cree"
Cons: "Crowded plane, long boarding and waiting to be seated"
Cons: "My seat was semi-broken, it was in constant state of reclining."
Pros: "Best food and attention that I've had on an airline in 20 years. Really. I was telling a friend today, Swiss Air started with drinks, gave us a Parisian baguette sandwich, gave us a healthy breakfast of yoghurt warm croissant butter jam orange juice, drinks again, and several passengers surrounding me got special attention, one woman with a baby, a disabled person, and a teenager that was 6'5" was relaocated by the flight attendant without him even asking to a bulkhead seat for more comfort. You don't see this kind a attention to detail on any US flights or US airlines, so I noticed it. It was as if I was traveling back in the 70's or 80's when Airlines would compete for our dollars with their service. I mentioned to my friend that if I had a choice and Swiss Air was one of the choices, I'd choose Swiss Air over any other airline."
Pros: "On time, good service, nice crew"
Cons: "Tight space for legs when chair is in flat setting"
Cons: "Old planes. Food was okay. Business zeats not too comfortable."
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Because there was no way for us to check in early or online and they did not send us an email directing us to do so, they put us on standby even though the flights were paid for months before. We couldn't sit together--they wouldn't even try, they let the computer do it randomly as we boarded. They put my son through ridiculous strip search security measures, and when my passport fell into to the steel bullet of a garbage can, they didn't help and my son and I figure out how to go through it to get my passport. They could not have been more unhelpful. Plus the food was terrible, and delays both in taking off and getting to the gate. I will NEVER fly Swiss Air again."
Cons: "Headphones are real cheap and hurt the ears...plus it has two pin socket where you can't use your regular headphones...please change this!"
Cons: "Very rough landing. They dropped plane 5 or 6 times minutes before landing almost puked my guts out"
Pros: "The chocolate"
Cons: "No outlet for charging electronics. No free checked luggage. My carry on (of usual size) was deemed a bit too big so I was forced to check it in."
Pros: "My luggage was lost for two days on the flight from Tampa to Zurich and/or Zurich to Naples. It was delivered by the end of the second day. But before that I found out I could not choose seats online for any of the Swiss Air Flights to and from Europe. It "had to be done" at the airport. Why? Never explained. I called Travis International, the agency booking the flights. Totally useless conversation resulted with no explanation."
Cons: "The Flights were longer than other airlines taking similar routes. The routing was absurd. To go from Naples to Munich and then turn around and go to Zurich before the 10 hour trip to Tampa made no sense. Lousy routing and customer service. Eidelswiss apparently is a lower-end branch of Swiss Air. My airfare was as much as and more than my other friends who flew Delta, for instance. Flights on other airlines did not take 10 hours from Zurich to Tampa. I lost the ticket receipts and could not claim anything for the items I bought to try get through the two full days without luggage, even though the airlines has a record of the claim. Outrageous!!"
Pros: "Food great!"
Cons: "Limited space , very narrow and not very clean. I seated next to a dog, pet. The whole trip the dog was sitting on the floor next to me:(, although it was a very quiet and good dog. Crew not very friendly . They were tired I believe ."
Pros: "I liked the service, the food, the entertainement, the super kind personel, would only fly with them :) Thank you!"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about"
Cons: "Too narrow seats."
Cons: "Cervise was not so good was waiting almost 3 hours on check in"
Cons: "Good"
Pros: "The service is the best!!! I enjoyed everything!!"
Pros: "Crew is very friendly Drinks quality is acceptable Comfortable airplane seats"
Cons: "Both flights from Swiss (from Münich to Zürich and the flight in the opposite direction) were delayed by 30 min and 1h, respectively."
Pros: "Helpful staff"
Cons: "I was uncomfortable with the space"
Pros: "We liked the crew, and the service and the food. We liked the screens and the choice of movies and entertainment."
Cons: "The seats were a bit close, but not terrible. The seats themselves were comfortable."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Didn't find anything."
Pros: "Coke Zero was available."
Cons: "Limited selection of movies and tv shows and only one food option."
Pros: "Entertainment and food were excellent, and the crew was pleasant and helpful. The small extras were delightful - i.e. warm cloths at the end of the flight! Overall, I think Swiss is a very good airline."
Cons: "On a long flight like this, the seating is still too cramped. We are not large people, and nine hours in those seats is difficult, even with considerate 'neighbors'. The seats are just too close together. This is an airport comment - Deboarding to a bus, then a walk to the train/tram, then security, then another walk to the gate - we barely made our connecting international flight."
Cons: "I paid extra for legroom but was in the main walkway so my feet were stepped on for the entire flight."
Cons: "Flight attendants blocked the aisle cleaning after meal service. The line of more than 10 people formed in the aisle trying to go to the lavatories, and the flight attendants would not move even after repeated requests by a parent who had a two year old needing to go. The lavatories were vacant at the time. Why can't they clear out and let people pass through. Never seen this type unaccommodating behavior."
Pros: "Very positive opinion about the flight."
Cons: "The most of the passengers are Russian speaking. It will be good to make all the announcements in Russian language also."
Cons: "Delayed boarding due to overheated plane, when we did board it was still warm and we had to sit longer due to other mechanical issues. Wish they would have waited for all issues to be resolved before boarding."
Pros: "I liked the friendliness of the crew"
Cons: "There was no inflight entertainment of any kind."
Pros: "Nice and friendly staff, good food and free wine"
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Great crew, and on time, of course: there Swiss!"
Cons: "Tech old and seats uncomfortable and plane loud."
Pros: "Just safety."
Cons: "- the crew was unpleasant and rude, which came as a surprise because usually Swiss crew is nice - the seat was unrandomly small, awfully for someone who is 5'11 - the food was so average"
Pros: "Good communication, helpful and friendly staff, usually on time, and better than average food & beverage options."
Cons: "Online check-in was complicated by my visa and made worse when I went to check-in counter at airport and representative did not know how to enter my info into the system. There should be better training provided to ensure people who are foreign citizens living in another country on visas can be easily processed just as quickly and efficiently as everyone else."
Pros: "The flight crew were friendly and helpful. We were on a newer plane so there was a lot of legroom."
Cons: "No in flight entertainment made for a long flight."
Pros: "During this covid days NO ONE in the flight will keep the soccal distance and no one will take the issue serious and the crew did not helpfull"
Cons: "You should take this issue very seriously"
Pros: "Food is amazing."
Pros: "Chem-in"
Pros: "The flight crew was excellent IAD to IST."
Cons: "The customs process takes too long to make domestic flights in time. I ended up missing my connection to Antayla because the customs line was too long, so I was re-booked for a later flight departing 7+ hours later. I think in the future kayak needs to ensure at least 2 hours for a connecting flight"
Pros: "Food and plane"
Cons: "IST transit"
Cons: "The are not nice at all"
Pros: "Two things stood out. 1. The flight attendants were amazingly helpful in making sure the luggage was placed in overhead bins. 2. They gave out kits with a toothpaste and brush even for economy class! Nice service overall. Polite and efficient."
Cons: "Istanbul airport leaves much to be desired."
Pros: "Customer service was excellent and food was restaurant grade!"
Cons: "Nothing comes to my minds"
Pros: "Food was good and the crew members were very friendly."
Cons: "The entertainment system for the full plane was not working. WiFi was not working. I was not too concerned about the WiFi, but for people traveling with children, no TV was difficult."
Pros: "Once we boarded, staff were attentive and service was good in business class. Food was high quality but in their effort to serve an elaborate 4-5 course meal, there was less attention on making sure people had drinks to pair with their meals."
Cons: "We were delayed for 3 hours. We were held in a the boarding area behind security for 2 hours with no seats, no water, no space, and no information. Turkish Airline representatives looked clueless and did not provide information or even look concerned. That was the worst handled delay in my over 30 years of flying all over the world on any many carriers. Once we boarded, the flight went well from there."
Pros: "Good entertainment, movies ,etc... Helpful crew"
Cons: "Very long lines and delayed boarding"
Pros: "Friendly checking in staff. Easy to us and good variety movies."
Cons: "Short leg-room, squeezed chairs, air stewards too busy to remember to follow up requests, Less than enough choice for non-cheese food-type. Less than clear English command."

Pros: "excellent crew work"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "The food was excellent"

Cons: "Good"
Pros: "Friendly crew, entertainment system"

Pros: "The landing takeoff was very smooth."
Cons: "The seats r too small. The food did not taste good. Wn I asked for snacks since I did not eat I was told there is nothing. No wheelchair service. I have never seen in my life such poor wheelchair service."
Cons: "Flight was late leaving Nairobi due to a catering issue. Missed connection through Istanbul to Manchester. Placed on AF flight to Paris then Manchester. Paris flight was delayed. Missed connection to Manchester. Paid for my own hotel room overnight in Paris CDG. Flight will arrive a day late in Manchester. That means I have missed my flights from Manchester to UK with Air Lingus (booked through Kayak website) It seems I must now purchase a new ticket to get home from Manchester to Nashville. All expenses I can ill afford. Lesson learned...cannot afford to use Kayak anymore...sorry."
Pros: "good flight"
Cons: "na"
Pros: "We didn't crash"
Cons: "Took too long. Build a transporter soon"
Cons: "Very hot inside the plane"
Pros: "Boarding"

Cons: "No thing"
Pros: "I like the food which were served, I like everything overal"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Non- stop option! Great food."
Cons: "Some of the crew members had an attitude issues and they weren't as attentive as others."
Cons: "I had a connection from Istanbul to Frankfurt with Lufthansa . I was disappointed that TK airlines did not allow me to check the luggage through to Frankfurt because the flight was on a different ticket . As an Elite Plus member , I expect better cooperation among the star alliance member airlines . I had to check out and back again , took almost two hours of waiting in lines . Good that on this occasion I had sufficient time and did not miss the LH flight ."
Pros: "The food on Turkish is excellent, and it seems they come through every hour to offer water, coffee or tea between meals. The entertainment is also the best system, with the most options I have seen on any airline. And the seats are much more comfortable than most planes- the headrests bend so much, you can actually sleep without your head rolling off the headrest!"
Pros: "Gold thing is that the flights are always on time."
Cons: "My charger got confiscated in Istanbul, too bad. I should have been told about this."
Pros: "The window seat"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Employees didnt look or act very welcoming. Very little food."
Pros: "Care and food on board were excellent."
Cons: "Boarding was late and was very confusing. No special area for business class. This was not true when we were going to Cairo from Istanbul. The lounge there is fabulous but because our flight was late we didn't have time to go to the lounge on return flight."
Pros: "The free hotel provided by Turkish airline is very nice too."
Pros: "Food was fine and entertainment system was great. Watched movies the whole way. We arrived 1 hour early."
Cons: "I was pulled aside for extra security. That was fine but there were a few other passengers that should have been pulled over for extra security besides me. It took an extra 20 minutes for me to board the plane because of this and when I arrived to my seat an Arab woman was sitting in my place and refused to move to the middle seat. She said she could not and would not sit next to a man who was sitting on the other side. If this is a problem from the start, there should be a way to choose a seat according to gender. The stewardess found me another place in front of this woman who kicked my seat the whole way. She even argued with the stewardess about putting her suitcase above her in the rack and security was almost called. There should be something included in the flight information program about being polite to other passengers."
Pros: "The service was good, the food was good. No complaints"
Pros: "My overall experience with Turkish Air was a pleasant one from the time we boarded until we landed. The crew was nice and very accommodating. The food was very good and warm."

Cons: "Attendants did not smile, but were helpful."
Pros: "no individual tv screens. only 1 container of orange juice. BUT the stewards was really lovely when I told her I was allergic and made me a plate of fruit."
Pros: "Best movie selection, best food. They even came around with pieces of Turkish delight right after we took off. Turkish Air makes it worth flying through Istanbul to get to western Europe!!"

Cons: "A bit sluggish boarding"
Pros: "The flight was very long to say the least especially being in coach but I enjoyed the feeling of being treated as if I were a first class passenger. All of the amenities, smiles and clean bathrooms - I'd certainly fly Turkish again and recommend it to my friends."
Cons: "I did find it to be a bit stuffy."
Pros: "Excellent salmon meal"
Cons: "The seat and area around me on this early morning flight were trashy-- old cups of cheese spread, cracker crumbs, and an empty water bottle."

Cons: "The flight was more than 4 hours late making us miss our connections"
Pros: "Amazing crew very good service ."

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "flight was diverted an hour away for refueling because of weather over SLC. But SLC opened before we even landed at Grand Junction, CO. I had 8 mins to run between concourses to catch the next flight. My bags didn’t make the flight and have perishable food items. But it is what it is."

I dont fly as often, the seats space seems to be getting smaller. 5. I sat next an overweight person. I didn't like my personal space violated. 6. The flight offer movies, I slept. Yet kept getting elbowed by this overweight neighbor. 7. I am a single, independent person. I prefer to sit near the front. First on and settled and 1st off and gone!"

Pros: "Plane was clean, easy boarding, crew was kind and attentive."
Cons: "30 minutes late no explanations...."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "sitting next to a large dog and the wifi not working given i prepaid for it and actually selected the flight because it had wifi i fell hours behind on my work"
Pros: "Fabulous fight. Attentive staff and I love the free entertainment tv’s."
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "Trying too hard to fit as many as possible"
Cons: "Couldn’t pick my seat"
Pros: "I loved the way that the flight attendants were able to sit my boyfriend and I together on our flights even though our seats weren't planned to be near each other. The available entertainment games, movies and tv shows were awesome to have!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Free movies was nice, service friendly."
Cons: "Long flight but shorter than scheduled, awesome."
Pros: "I like the fact that I was issued a credit for my flight. It was booked in error and had to be cancelled."
Cons: "I don't know how to use my credit."
Cons: "They charged $300 for 3 bags"
Pros: "Pilot flew flawless crew kind and helpful it was a full flight and impressed helpful passengers to get on board was."
Cons: "Disappointed airplane not equipped with free movies. I bought ear buds on return flight for that purpose"
Pros: "On time boarding in Seattle."
Cons: "Delayed in Los Angeles for about an hour. Checked on flight tracker and this flight is consistently delayed 20-40 minutes. Why hasn't Delta done anything to improve this?"
Pros: "The short flight was fine. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Because we arrived to LAX from SAN so late we had to run to the next gate and barely made the flight. The overhead bins were already very full so we had to stuff our stuff at our feet. Since we arrived so late it would have been better if they had allowed those with a tight connection to disembark first."
Pros: "They kept me fed and hydrated the whole time, they let you watch brand new movies free, the seats are super comfortable. They allow a personal item and carry on at no extra charge."
Pros: "Flight attrndants on delta are mostly ok-- but there are several with bad attitudes who cannot communicate They will just point at things and mumble incoherently with incomplete sentences They will not turn there hips when walking down the aisle to avoid hitting people & they"
Cons: "Flight attendants are miserable"
Pros: "What is the issue?"
Pros: "Staff were all polite"
Cons: "The least amount of legroom I've ever had. The most cramped I've ever been and I'm 5'2 and fly a lot. Also for a 5 hour flight, I should not have been as uncomfortable as I was. There's less cushion than before."
Pros: "Boarding was easy"
Cons: "Arrived 15 mins late and then taxied for another 5-10 mins."
Cons: "Undersized overhead bins so ALL carry-on rollerbags had to be checked."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy. Woot! For food on the SAN to JFK flight!"
Cons: "I hate that I booked and checked in early, but still had my seat assignment changed twice before boarding, and when I got to my seat, it was in front of the exit row, and my seat wouldn't recline. It was terribly uncomfortable"
Pros: "Service. Sweet attendant."
Cons: "Extreme delays"
Cons: "no legroom in a first class and expensive seat"
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "The crew, and boarding quickly"
Cons: "The flight was packed. It was hot as we boarded. The seat was tight and uncomfortable"

All was well.

Pros: "The crew was awsome"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Crew was wonderful. Food and drinks was good."
Cons: "More movies in Russian language, or with English subtitles"
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: "Food and seats"
Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "Nothing everything was great!"
Pros: "Everything about the flight was perfect."
Cons: "Cannot get Lufthansa to issue miles for the flight, or for my Star Alliance flights on Swiss and United. Frankfort terminal transfer distance is very far, and too far if your flight transfer is less than 55 minutes!"
Pros: "The crews are ok; hard working . Seat are comfortable too."
Cons: "I think that’s almost."
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: "Yes"
Cons: "The Cabin seating"
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: "the crew were very good"
Cons: "sitting all the way back of the plane next to fat lady sorry"
Cons: "We were unable to fly this trip."
Pros: "Great departure time. Super comfortable even in coach."
Cons: "The second meal was a bit skimpy and not so tasty."
Cons: "Food quality"
Pros: "Premium economy seats make a huge difference in terms of comfort. The Vegan pre-selected meal was way better this leg of the trip than the LAX to FRA trip. Entertainment was good too."
Pros: "Good customer service"
Cons: "Seat was not comfortable and food was not great"
Pros: "Barcelona airport is beautiful. The Chechen in staff was helpful and arranged wheelchair assistance for all legs of my flight"
Cons: "We requested extra leg room seats on the bulkhead. We did not get them which was not a big deal on this leg of the flight but on the flight from Frankfurt to SFO which was 10+ hours, was miserable"
Pros: "Decent food."
Cons: "No onboard entertainment."
Pros: "Service was excellent. Late night flight was kept dark so we could rest - wonderful dinner menu, surprising for plane food."
Cons: "Flight was delayed so there was a bit of a chaos boarding but it has nothing to do with the service itself."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Crew"
Pros: "Efficient boarding process"
Cons: "Only got a cookie for food"
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: "Everything was good except for the flight food. I tried the pasta and couldn’t eat it."
Pros: "everything"
Pros: "The Crew was very attentive und friendly! The flight was in time"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "On time-well organized!"
Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Terrible boarding. Finally we were almost 1 hour delay in departure"
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Problem, flight was from Munich to Moscow, got onto flight from Munich to Ankara, boarding staff didn't notice, still not in Moscow."
Pros: "It was a good flight with Lufthanza - nice and friendly crew, comfortable plane, good food."
Pros: "I am very happy with my flights. I would recommend to friends and family. :) Thank you"
Cons: "There is not entertainment and seats not that comfortable"
Pros: "The plane was clean, the temperature was fine during flight. They fed us dinner almost right after taking off. The staff was attentive and friendly"
Cons: "Almost was late for our flight, because it took us over 1 hour to pass the passport control at the Frankfurt airport. It was terribly organized and understaffed which caused other people to miss their flight. My husband and I ended up running to our gate like mad men and we were the last to board right before they closed the gate. Very stressful and frustrating!!! Other than that the flight was ok. We were surprised that we were served a dinner right after we took off, but the hot entree was bad, so we ended up asking the flight attendant bring us more bread so we filled up on that."
Cons: "Last minute gate change in Munich was a bit hectic, as it was a tight connection."
Pros: "Nice crew and dinner."
Cons: "Luggage didn't make the flight."
Pros: "0"
Cons: "Had to pay to check in one nag"
Cons: "i missed this connection was put on a united flight and was bumped down from business to economy. no apologies, no effort whatsoever to make up"
Pros: "I flew round-trip in Business Class from Munich to Kiev and then back to Germany via Frankfort and both flights were on time. The dedicated business class check-in line and advance boarding process was smooth - as were both flights. The cabin crew on both flights were very good and all spoke English well. My chief complaint is with the European Business Class seating model (3 across with center seat empty) - which does not afford much more leg room or seat pitch than in economy class. On the plus side you don't have to get in a fist-fight with anyone over the overhead bin storage problem since there are less people in business class and hence more storage space."
Cons: "The "European business class model" is not that great when you are paying a premium price to ride in Business Class. I think the prior 2 x 2 arrangement on each side with larger (and more comfortable) seats...plus more legroom and seat pitch...is preferable."
Pros: "Service, timeliness and new aircraft"
Cons: "Everything was excellent"
Pros: "personal screen with option to start / pause and restart movie, good selection of movies but not the resent ones. Hot food, quick service. considered crew"
Cons: "no relaxing/ meditating music to ease sleeping only voice guided recordings, 3 hrs delay increased travel to 11 hrs 45 min"
Pros: "Short flight so it was good"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Cons: "The seat that I paid for was taken from me by Lufthansa without explanation or a refund."
Pros: "As I noted above, both LH crews worked well. They were very professional, spoke languages as needed, accommodated passengers' requests, served edible food (mostly) and were visible and available throughout. The long-distance Airbus plane was comfortable enough. I like the idea of putting all the bathrooms downstairs ... but ..."
Cons: "... putting all the bathrooms downstairs might create difficulties for handicapped passengers. I am not sure how this is handled; perhaps help is provided, or perhaps there is one bathroom at flight-level."
Pros: "I will always try to fly Lufthansa in Europe from now on. You have courteous and capable employees and all of your systems are set up to be intuitive and straightforward."
Pros: "Everything was good , on time and without problems."
Cons: "No entertaiment"
