I've noticed it declining in quality over the past year. Bread is always cold and hard and vegetables are sometimes tasteless. I also never get good dessert :( luckily, the cabin crew giving out food still had some other food I could eat so I just gave back my special meal which was cold and unappetizing."

We paid for a hotel for the night (we should have landed at 1am) and instead landed at 7am, so we had to completely skip our hotel and had no sleep for the wedding the next day. We’re out of $120 for the hotel we already paid for and the staff gave us no help in form of compensation."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "For an 8 hour flight - we were given a sandwich and breakfast. Expected to be served dinner and breakfast given the time."

Cons: "My entertainment system was not working and the crew wasn’t very helpful about it."

Pros: "Crew was friendly, food was good and entertainment great. Space between front row seats in economy class was good."
Cons: "all good."

Pros: "The flight from Johannesburg to Dubai on an Airbus A380 was the best , the return was on the 777ER it's a bit older avoid it if you can, I prefer the a380 it's roomy, more comfortable and modern, the food was good, the cabin crew very helpful and friendly and both flights were on time. I'll be flying only Emirates from now on"
Cons: "Just the coffee was terrible lol,"

Cons: "I like it"

Cons: "Emirates did not allow us to select the food preference as we had booked through a third party. They literally starved us for 14 hours as we r vegetarian and could not eat meat laden foods."

Pros: "Crew was bored, never smiled, obviously not Enjoying their jobs. Food was no better than any other airline, Which means it wasn’t very good. My small carry-on bag was 2 pounds overweight so they made me check it, they weigh every bag. We were looking forward to our flight because we had been told by several people that emirates Airline was special… It was not."

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Crew was surly, never smiled. They all seemed very tired and intolerant of customers. Service was minimal. Food was tasteless and salty. Water was offered only once on a 14 hour flight. Aircraft was very cramped- no room to walk in the aisle without hitting the aisle seats. Overhead compartments were crammed full and it was very difficult to find space for a small bag."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They recently started charging unnecessary excess fees for overweight. I traveled from Seattle to Hyderabad via Dubai. I carried my cabin bag from Seattle with weight of 9kgs and purchased few duty free items of 2kgs(2 liquor bottles and1 dates box). They have asked me to pay $150 for excess weight. One passenger traveled from Houston with a bag of 11kgs. Items include 1 laptop documents and tablet. She didn't shop in Dubai. She was allowed in Houston but was charged $100 in Dubai for same weight."

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."

Pros: "Emirates is still the best option for travel from Seattle to South Asia. Flight time is convenient and boarding process is flawless as always,"
Cons: "In flight meal service and staff attention is not the same as a few years ago. The fees on advance seat selection is ridiculous. After spending close to two grand on a return ticket, Emirates wants me to spend another 40 bucks each way to heya seat of my choice ?"

Pros: "Crew were efficient and moved things through"
Cons: "Food could be improved as was movie selections"

Pros: "Entertainment options, boarding process"
Cons: "Food quality is still good but slightly below previous experiences"

Pros: "Food is good"
Cons: "Need Indian tea"

Pros: "Good flight attendants."
Cons: "The planes still seem dated on the interior, but entertainment system is expansive."

Pros: "They still catch my attention, and while traveling with them I continue to enjoy this airline."
Cons: "As per my Oslo - Dubai review (read there for more details), they cancelled my flight, put me on a flight a day later, and then left me with the bill and the inconvenience. This was the connector out of Dubai and back to Johannesburg. I've flown with them many times and I've picked up one or two small cut backs they've made like no hot towel when you get onboard, only before your arrival, and the meal seems a little more slimmed down (but still pretty tasty), They used have one or two extras which they've now taken away. Not sure why?"

Pros: "As comfortable as one could hope for a long haul economy seat."

Cons: "I was expecting a ve"

Pros: "The staff was amazing, not perfect, but still very good. Even on the long leg from Seattle to Dubai after 14 hours they we're smiling, helpful and attentive."
Cons: "The only thing I could say was not up to par was the food on both flights. The long legs food got me sick, and yes I was the only one so could have just been me, and the second the "sandwich" it seems they were not even trying."

Cons: "Rude and racist cabin crew!"

Pros: "The crew member was excellent,she went all out to make my journey easy and comfortable.I have sent an email to her superior,please use her as an example.if all attendants can serve and see to passengers like her will be beneficial for emirates"

Pros: "All went fine"

Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "It was ok"

Pros: "The food was delicious, and I received the special meal I had requested with no problem. Again, great selection of TV shows and movies."
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit put off, just not very friendly. Maybe something had happened that put them all in a bad mood I'm not sure. Despite this they did help people without complaint, but you could tell they didn't want to be there. Again on this flight the TVs were an old model that was difficult to use, you had to push really hard and finagle your finger to get it to read what you were pressing."

Pros: "I made it to my final destination safely"
Cons: "Not much overhead space for your bags, so we have to keep them at the bottom of our feet....i was travelling with a senior on a wheelchair and the idea of her going up and down the stairs into and out of the airplane wasnt so pleasing...the cabin crew could be easily mistaken for any other passenger becase of dress code..."

Cons: "Be sure to take your own water bottle with you on this long 14 hour flight. Both directions it seemed that the company approach to beverages was to serve as little as possible, perhaps to keep people out of the bathrooms. But the cabin air was so dry I could barely swallow at times one way drinking only what was provided, but the other way I noticed that my jet lag was greatly reduced when I carried and consumed an extra liter or two above what was provided. At one gate the security crew asked me to dump my water, but I had a small empty bottle with me that I could fill up at the spigot near the bathroom on the plane as needed."

Cons: "Was required to check my small roll aboard because I had a backpack, while other passengers were allowed to carry on multiple large items."

Pros: "Great food and entertainment options on this flight. I appreciated that the flight crew asked all passengers to close the window drapes so we could all sleep. The chairs in economy seem to lay back further than other airlines which made it more comfortable."
Cons: "i would like to be upgraded I first class (for free)! :)"

Cons: "THe Hostess was not attentive and had to ask for things a few times. No goody basket was given although some pax did get it."

Pros: "I was ready for a tortuous 14+ hour flight since I had a center seat in the very last row... But, I was pleasantly surprised. Enjoyed tracking the trip on the entertainment center and viewing outside on the cameras."
Cons: "Navigating the entertainment system was a bit complicated and the touch screen didn't respond well to my touch."

Pros: "Good overall experience."

Pros: "Great menus, get you all excited. Variety, interesting dishes. Generous with wine and drinks."
Cons: "It's... airline food. Doesn't live up to the promise of the menu. Cooked too long ago, reheated too much, ... I understand that they have constraints, that's what you get when you want to eat in the sky. But I have eaten better food in airplanes, in economy."

Pros: "Hospitality and vegetarian food Maintaining the timings"

Cons: "flight left without 1/6 of the passengers. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯"

Pros: "Amazing"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Price is ok"

Cons: "Nothing @ this time"

Pros: "Good access to charging, good food"
Cons: "More space:)"

Cons: "No room to move, too hot, no sound when trying to watch movies."

Cons: "We experienced a one hour ground delay at Sea-Tac which was unrelated to our airline. The pilot kept the passengers informed with timely updates, and we finally departed about when the pilot predicted we'd get away."

Cons: "Compared to Virhin Australia crew, Delta staff seem almost poorly trained in comparison. For example, Drlta crew don’t check your pass, don’t immediately move down the aisle to move along tourists busy discussing their seats and then line up for Boarding seems chaotic at best."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "food and service was amazing"

Cons: "Only complaint was nothing that can be changes. I had a middle set and it was quite cramped...my computer didn’t fit on the tray or would get smashed when the person in front of me reclined."

Pros: "."

Pros: "I loved flying delta comfort. I’m going to do it more often."

Cons: "Old cramped untidy and limited drink service"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Multilpe delays"

Pros: "This was our first time flying Delta and it was a very pleasurable experience. Boarding was very straight forward and the seats allocated comfortable. A surprise for us was being asked if we would like to move seats from the back of the aircraft to Comfort Economy (we think it was to do with weight balance! but appreciated very much none the less). The flight attendants were very professional and helpful, as you would hope all attendants on all airlines would be. We'd gladly fly Delta again anytime."

Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Too many announcements"

Pros: "Alaska Airlines is way overpriced and way less comfortable than Delta. I’m a Delta loyalist forever now!"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact they wasted two days of my trip with my son travelling from the U.S. to China because they didn't know about transit visa regulations. And so far they offered a 75 dollar voucher for participating merchants. Unacceptable"

Pros: "Enjoyed food and movies.Woul"
Cons: "Would like more comedy or romance movies. Becky"

Pros: "Very friendly and helpful staff."

Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "We disliked that our baggage was lost and we do not have it two days later."

Pros: "Nothing. Delta sucks!"
Cons: "Poor management prior boarding"

Cons: "Enforce your baggage size and number limits. A significant number of passengers take bags onboard that are oversized."

Pros: "Lufthansa is a great airline."
Cons: "Food was so hot that it was difficult to remove the packaging to be able to eat the pasta.... Desert was ok, brownie was real hard and too sweet...."

Cons: "Very little legroom."

Pros: "Salmon dinner was the best dish Lufthansa ever served"
Cons: "Flight attendants disappeared after serving dinner. They didn't come around once between dinner and breakfast. This was the worst LH crew ever."

Pros: "Staff was extremely nice and helpful"

Cons: "Check-in Seattle was ill organized and folks cut and groused"

Pros: "Just about brand new Airbus airplane, very nice! Everything worked, seats reasonably comfortable for a long flight. Boarding worked well by area of the plane, friendly crew."

Cons: "Food could be better"

Pros: "My seat was next to bathrooms when everyone start using it start smelling too much very uncomfortable sitting there. Food chicken was very salted, they run out of drinks 10 hours flight dinner served at begging no snacks or anything till 2 hours before landing"
Cons: "At least air fresheners in bathrooms or something better so passengers can sit comfortably"

Cons: "The flight itself was good. But the connection wasn't. For this schedule, it is next to impossible to make the connection. The gate that the SEA to FRA flighy arrives at is at least half an hour away from the gate that SEA to MAA leaves from and there is a security checkpoint in between."

Cons: "Cold on the plane/food needs more choice and improvement. Plane was late to arrive-over an hour later"

Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly. The seats were new. The movie selection was good."
Cons: "The scrambled eggs for breakfast appeared to be powered eggs, or overcooked eggs. The storage bins for the luggage were very small for the middle seats (aircraft was an Airbus A330-200). After several hours of flying, there was trash in the aisles and on the toilet floor. The toilets were dirty and not cleaned. Finally, the toilets ran out of paper towels and tissues with 3 hours to go in the flight, and they were never refilled. The flight attendants put a roll of toilet paper next the sink to use for your hands."

Pros: "Lufrhansa is a fantastic airline"
Cons: "The seat pitch and width were too small."

Pros: "One of the flight attendants was awesome!"
Cons: "I got bit by bugs. I’ve never experienced something like that on a flight."

Pros: "Movie choices were great! The crew was very nice and accommodating."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, but that's a problem with every airline."

Cons: "Seats are tiny and crews English was just okay."

Pros: "Very friendly crew"

Cons: "Rating and bad customer experience shared on web...."

Pros: "The selection of in-flight movies is excellent. That has been my only positive experience"
Cons: "Lufthansa is always late, every single flight I have caught with them has been at least 45 minutes late. Additionally they are very inflexible if you want to make a change to your tickets after purchasing. Boarding the plane is handled very inefficiently and takes much longer than most other airlines. The food is mediocre and the drink cart only comes by every 2 hours or so which is far too infrequent"

Pros: "On time Boarding was convenient"
Cons: "Food Seats"

Pros: "Crew is very friendly, seats are extremely comfortable and good room overall, comfortable flight."
Cons: "Hi, To be honest, it was embarrassing to serve that dish on such a major airline. Chicken with bbq sauce and corn or something like that. Was distasteful I couldn’t take more than 2 small bites."

Pros: "The Entertainment, the Food and the nice and friendly manner of all personell."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "That was the most comfortable flight I have ever had. Famous German standards of excellence. Everything was just as it's supposed to be. Punctuality, politeness, order - just perfection. Thank you for such a great treatment!"
Cons: "N/a"

Cons: "Crew was not nice at all. They would skip us along the way while serving others, or even drop ice on us, and never said sorry once (instead, they would say it's only ice, or if I want 2 since they skipped me already twice when serving tea unlike the passengers around me on both sides). We paid nearly $6k for the 3 of us, but the crew made us feel as if we paid nothing. The entertainment system did not work well, and most of the time the movies refused to play. We were always suggested to restart, and were not even given free access to internet as an alternative. No one ever apologized for anything in the entire flight, it felt like this flight was a favor."

Pros: "None"
Cons: "Most of it"

Pros: "Everything was generally good and normal"
Cons: "Except the plane was roasting and had no vents"

Pros: "it was quite comfortable"
Cons: "luggage got delayed by 2 days. No dresses to even wear. Plus lufthanse didn't know where my bags were."

Cons: "Leg room was less"

Pros: "Aircraft crew was decent."
Cons: "Seattle to Frankfurt aircraft was the dingiest and most crammed aircraft I have ever used on an international leg. The seats were tiny so much so that some other passengers were not able to fit in! The lighting was gloomy, restroom dirty within the first hour of the flight, no space to keep any magazine or books on the back rest of the seat in front of you, etc. Overall - such a bad experience. Not expected from Lufthansa, especially as I have had great experience with Lufthansa earlier."

Pros: "The view - flying low over the northern extremes of Canada was superb. Thanks to the pilots etc."
Cons: "The flight was late arriving at Frankfurt. I requested a notification to my connecting flight. Crew member frowned, turned away and in formed me, "We don't do that". I ran to the Connecting Lufthansa flight and barely made it on time."

Pros: "The boarding process made it easy to find my seat and get settled in."
Cons: "My seat back didn’t recline. But the one in front of me did. So I was penned in."

Pros: "The staff and food was great!"
Cons: "Seats are very close. Not comfortable when neighbors are big and fake up my space!"

Pros: "Our dinner meal was quite good for airline food. After they reset my TV three times, it worked good."
Cons: "The breakfast left a lot to be desired. Leg room was very limited, especially after the person in front of me reclined their seat."

Pros: "The crew were very helpful and polite. The seats had plenty legroom. The food was excellent, and entertainment was also very good. Most importantly, there was no delay."

Pros: "OK"

Pros: "Food was pretty good except for breakfast. Hospitality is great. Wish there was more access to water."
Cons: "Big passengers sitting near smaller passengers is annoying as they encroach on the limited space that exist and armrests suck as per usual."

Pros: "Our attendents were clearly focused on our needs. Efficient and still very human and kind. A real treat."

Pros: "Big airplane and therefore no turbulence. Food was good for airplane food. Boarding was pretty fast considering the number of people. Didn't have problems finding overhead luggage space"
Cons: "Sat next to the bathroom and therefore repeatedly got bumped by people and carts as they passed. The stewardess was polite but had an obvious fake smile pasted on her face. A bit more honest facial expression would have been more comfortable."

Pros: "Everything! Excellent stewards too!"

Cons: "You lost my luggage"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Few choice of movies"

Pros: "The variety and ease of use of the entertainment"
Cons: "The boarding was not at all well organized. There were no instructions about what to have ready and the woman who checked our passports was rude."

Pros: "Thank you for the great experience!"

Pros: "Entertainment options were incredible; great legroom in our seats."

Pros: "Food and beverage service was excellent."
Cons: "Cabin temperature was way too hot. Leg room was too small"

Cons: "A kid next to me keep shifting and kick me and nudge me all the time. His dad was trying to stop him from moving too much but couldn't control entirely. I kept waking up"

Cons: "I was denied boarding. No one told me that my passport had to be 6 mo. to expiration. Why the hell do you even put an expiration date if you're going to deny all travels prior to 6 months?"

Cons: "Both bathroom were not working in business class area."

Pros: "Great atmosphere, crew was excellent!"
Cons: "I’m 6’5”, so legroom can always be a complaint, but this wasn’t too bad. The plane appeared to be fairly old and didn’t have WiFi. Entertainment also was on an older screen which was navigated by using an old in-seat phone."

Cons: "A little bit chaotic when they loaded two planes at the same time in a very tight space in Amsterdsm but this was most likey an airport soecific design issue and not a KLM issue. The flight was as good as can be expected fir an international flight. The staff was great"

Pros: "Staff were professional and polite."

Cons: "when serving drinks, cabin crew limited to serve liquor only once and it was poor service."

Pros: "Nothing to mention"
Cons: "Crew was rude when I asked if there was a vegetarian option for the snack. I did request special meals for the trip. Even if they did not have a vegetarian option, they don't need to be rude!!

Cons: "No complaints about anything."

Pros: "Left ontime and service was excellent."
