Cons: "I like it the way it is. Keep doing the good job."
Pros: "Great crew, great customer service by phone, great food and entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding and deplaning took ages, but don't they always?"
Cons: "We’ve been waiting for almost an hour now for the bags to come out. This is insane"
Cons: "We were told to board, but then kept in another area close on 1 hour before we could get on the plane and this area had no bathroom facilities. The spread of seating on the plane made no sense with many open seats but also many squashed rows of people. The crew was visibly tired and irritated, they also ran out of a few catering items. It seemed as if last minute, a few different flights were combined into this one which lowered the quality."
Pros: "The Q-suite is exceptionally comfortable and the door really does make a difference. I usually have difficulty sleeping but the isolation from aisle traffic and ambient noise reduction was enough to allow some very good sleep. Staff experience was also exceptional - friendly and highly competent, looking to go the extra mile. Food was great and full menu available upon request."
Cons: "I did not find a gap"
Pros: "Crew was nice. Seat was broken for recliner."

I understand she was occupied with other duties, but she should have made me her priority."

Cons: "Seat comfort"
Cons: "Nothing to add?"

Cons: "Food not very good"
Pros: "Got me to Nuremberg"
Pros: "Courteous and professional."
Pros: "My coach seat on the upper deck was roomy thanks to the window cubbies on the A380. The flght attendants were friendly and very helpful. The A380's upper deck is noticably quieter. I throughly enjoyed flying on the A380. The food was also the best airplane food I've had."
Pros: "At a time when airlines are treating a plane like a flying bus, it's heartening to see Lufthansa's attention to detail for its customers both in terms of ontime departure, arrival and inflight hospitality is second to none."
Cons: "Food was lousy. I have not flown L for sometime, but the food was lousy. I don't remember it being this bad previously. They ran out of rice and chicken...and served me beef... The chicken was on the bone, instead of being off the bone...so harder to eat in small space."

Cons: "Food quality and selection. I"
Cons: "Missing one suitcase and it will be delivered a day late supposedly"
Cons: "Club World is a super dated product. The tech is old and you are uncomfortably close to your neighbors.

Pros: "No complaints at all"
Pros: "Crew were delightful! Amenities perfect."
Cons: "Very little space between seats."
Pros: "Good entertainment."
Pros: "Arrival into Heathrow was unsatisfactory."
Cons: "Wheelchair request was ignored"

Cons: "My American partner's passport expires 2 months after our return to the US. Unfortunately, the French issued a year ago the following rule: to enter France, the foreign passport must not expire at least 3 months after the return date. British Airways let us fly to London, explaining this to us, how it would be on us if there were problems further down, and that we would have to get our luggage in London. We chose to fly thinking it would be OK, we had listened to an online person who had had the same problem and the French later told him they would have let him in, also I am myself a dual citizen of France and the US, plus I am autistic, an invisible disability (in my case) that makes it impossible for me to travel alone. I usually do not even say it since not much is understood -by those who do not have it- on how to accommodate it However in London BA did not allow my partner to go on. Due to the fact yesterday was Easter Monday, the American consulate in London was closed. We have spent the night in a nearby motel and now, the next day, I am waiting alone back at the airport with our 2 large suitcases while my partner is at the American consulate. We are poor, do not have phone, currency or charger for England, and I do not do well with stress, so it is difficult. Now we cannot easily reach one another. We hope to be able to fly on a standby basis (that's what BA told us we could hopefully do) later today. Sorry for this long letter, I hope it does not bore whoever reads it (if it is even read :). Anne-Laure"

Pros: "Everything no complaints"
Cons: "No copmplaints"
Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "Seat was exactly the same as coach. My vegan meal consisted of 2 tiny plates of fruit and a soggy, egg-free omelet with unflavored tofu and no salt. Disgusting. Staff was snobbish and full of it. No on-board entertainment, no wifi, no reading material except the magazine. Oh they did try to sell me duty free. AVOID."
Cons: "On time and good staff"
Pros: "I upgraded my seat fr more legroom"
Cons: "On the trip over, British Air had no record of my seat upgrades. They tried to accomodate, but it was not the same. They did process a payment for about $110 for upgrades both way, however, and I have written to get a refund. In general, British Air can be not responsive or helpful in the admin department and i will avoid them from hereon."

Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Movie selection was limited although I found one in the lot that I thoroughly enjoyed. As always with Air Canada, you only get the most basic snacks and everything else is extra."
Cons: "My dad didn’t get on the plane because the previous one was late"
Cons: "SFO checkin was very poor. Had to go through 3 different check in agents and 2 terminals. Itinerary showed terminal 3 but the actual check in was at the international and with United! Need to improve on getting this direction communicated better from the start to end."

Cons: "I was refused boarding after being told I could fly. A horrible experience--rebooking for my wife and I cost us 1,000 dollars."
Cons: "It was horrible experience going through the Vancouver custom. Some one decided to random check a brown guy traveling alone. Okay, I get it. I give them credit for profiling me. But, I was very disappointed that they only know and follow the rules in their book. Dumping the luggage and wallet on the floor and then asked me to put everything back was not gonna help you find anything. They need to be bit smart and have some people skills. I mean a car salesman is smarter than this custom officer. I walked in for random screening with great respect for those officers but walked out with zero respect and maybe worse experience of my life. If you mistreat a innocent person just have a courtesy to say sorry or give them a stuffed canadian bear. We can understand!! One last thing for custom or border officers, treat the people the way you wanted to be treated."
Cons: "staff did not meet the plane because they were not organized."
Cons: "The connection process at YYZ airport. You need to clear security twice in order to connect. Risk of missing flights got connection because the walk to terminal is long and security checkpoint is very inefficient and sllw"
