Pros: "Crew was very efficient!!!"
Cons: "I wasn’t notified about delay in a timely manor."
Pros: "Seats are very comfortable"
Cons: "The flight is so much delayed. The flight attendent seemed not happy about me with a two year old, which makes traveling with a kid so unpleasant. When my kid asked to go to restroom, it seemed that we’re troulesome. My mom missed the water when they gave out drinks, but they did not come back for us. When I went to the back to ask for my mom, they said they’re cleaning up already."
Cons: "Delayed over 2hrs"
Pros: "Quick assistance with wheelchair"
Cons: "Delayed. I’m tired of JetBlue always being delayed. Delayed going down and coming back. Traveling with elderly disabled mom isn’t easy!"
Pros: "Crew is always pleasant and smiling, helpful and genuine. Love that there are still generous included snack bags with flights."
Pros: "Everyone did there jobs very well!!! The delay was from the New Jersey side which was unfortunate .Please check that my True Blue account has this flight on record. Thank you in advance. Also, you have the most leg room in the economy class seats!!!"
Pros: "I enjoyed the comfort once boarded and flight attendants warm welcome"
Cons: "Our flight was 3 hours late. Was supposed to leave at 10pm and left at 1:13 am!! Customer service at jetblue kept lying about the aircrafts whereabouts and crew. They barely gave us updates, and at one point once everyone started asking questions and getting upset, they disappeared from the desk for an hour at least. The crew was late, there was no food, customer service had quite an inappropriate attitude, and tvs on the plane barely worked,"
Pros: "Flight was delayed kept changing the time and wouldn’t allow my luggage to be checked. Disaster flight and communication through jetblue"
Pros: "The entire traveling process"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "Never had any issues with JetBlue. I will continue to fly with them!"
Cons: "It’s not my favorite paying to check 1 bag but I understand costs have gone up and the airlines need to keep up."
Pros: "The boarding crew was amazing, my boyfriend and I had different seats and they were able to arrange for us to sit next to each other. They were polite and very accommodating."
Cons: "The flight was terrible it seemed like this was the first time the pilot drove a plane. Even two pilots that were sitting were speaking about how terrible the flight was. And the flight attendants were acting like they had no home training, no manners/ professionalism and always had an attitude. These flight attendants were making jokes about a belligerent passenger instead of trying to help fix the situation. This was my first time ever taking a JetBlue flight and will sure be my last, especially when I paid 100 dollars more for this flight than what United was offering- I should of took United."
Pros: "fast boarding and no lines for baggage drop"
Cons: "delayed flight almost stayed up all night."
Cons: "All 3 connecting flights you sold me were not able to connect with each other, they lost my luggage because of you my trip is ruined, I hate kayak.com and I hate my experience with you, how can you be so ignorant to people's needs"
Cons: "It is very difficult to contact the airline via phone. I had to wait almost an hour to speak to a representative. I was told I could call 36 hours before flight to get seat reservations. They should improve phone service. Otherwise flight was very good."
Pros: "I know the pilot did the best he could but the landing in Newark was the worst I ever went through. About 20 people vomited, including myself. The crew was very thoughtful and picked up the bags before landing."
Pros: "Only liked the price of the travel ticket."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed. Stewardess' were rude. The only reason we flew JetBlue was because of the price. Always flew JetBlue but recently very poor customer service."
Cons: "It was great!!!"
Pros: "Very good"
Pros: "My gate change and I was not informed"
Pros: "We were delayed 1 & half hours to board & then sat on plane another hour & a half listening to captain LIE to us about why we could not take off!"
Cons: "Being lied to! Sitting on a crowded plane forever!"
Pros: "Free upgraded seat"
Cons: "Idled on the tarmac for over an hour. Ruined my day."
Pros: "The crew were friendly and very funny.."
Cons: "I was very upset because I was flying alone for the first time and there was no tv or movies . I was nervous and took comfort in the thought at least I can keep myself entertained."
Cons: "Unprofessional crew, plane that seemed to have technical problems, entertainment system that was nonoperational, seatbelt sign on entire flight, strange fumes that several passengers complained about."
Pros: "The flight attendants were so sweet and thoughtful."
Cons: "Bad attitudes, long lines, and no options. TERRIBLE experience and my vacation had to be canceled."
Pros: "The flights are good, plenty of room and great service."
Cons: "The 3 hour delay for "weather" was a bit much after sitting all day in the airport. Since no storms were in the NJ area until after 2am. The delay I'm guessing was due to Gov Christies ridiculous FAA changes. I cannot hold JetBlue responsible for this but anyone flying into the north east should count on a delay or canceled flights."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable."
Cons: "Flight delayed about an hour. Booked more than 4 months in advance but apparently seats were not assigned on this segment. Not even at check-in, only at gate. We were early, but they could not seat our family together. Not acceptable. This part worked fine on our way to FLL, so there's no excuse for not working on the flight back."
Cons: "3 hours delayed"
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "It was delayed due 3 hours! Terrible"
Pros: "Staff was VERY friendly"
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour and a half!"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "1 hour late"
Pros: "Jet Blues onboarding person did a great job of managing expectations during a 2.5 hour delay imposed by Newark airport officials."
Pros: "Snack choices are good, boarding from back is efficient and very cordial crew"
Cons: "No updates on a delayed flt being posted on departure board, when I went to check at gate flt had boarded and I missed flt. UPDATE DEPARTURE BOARD WITH RIGHT INFO!!!!!!"
Cons: "Delayed boarding due to air traffic was unavoidable. However, allowing earlier passengers to board with multiple carry-ons, of which some were questionable in size, did not allow passengers boarding later to have any room for theirs. Desk agent did ask for six volunteers to check their bags on a full flight. Adherence to the rules of size and number would be fairer to all passengers. Crew was very nice. Previous experience with Jet Blue was very positive."
Pros: "The crew was excellent - they did their best in a bad situation and should be commended for that - they let us get out of the plane after learning after we boarding that we would have to wait 2 hours to take off - they let us get out to go to the bathroom and get something to eat and bring back to the plane - it was very cold in the aircraft and there were not enough blankets to go around - additional blankets should be available - the chips that were served once we took off are not sufficient for passengers that were at the airport 2 hours earlier, experienced a 4 hour delay and still face a 3 hour flight- meal arrangements should be offered when passengers are facing such long delays - the free WIFI was a plus and the seats are comfortable"
Pros: "Jet Blue is an amazing airline. So comfortable and with great service. My flight was delayed for hours due to an equipment problem. I saw this and called them and they instantly moved me to a flight that would leave much earlier at no fee and also gave me Even More Space at no cost! Every time I fly them I remember how great it is. Too bad I don't live by a hub. More EWR flights, please!"
Pros: "Fast boarding, clean aircraft, friendly crew. Pitch space is very good and in "even more space" it's excellent"
Cons: "The choice of food could be better, for me the seats where not that comfortable but I loved the extra space. I'm 6 feet+ tall"
Pros: "The inflight experience was very good (full sized drink and choice of snack), plenty of leg room and comfortable seats."
Cons: "The check in line was painfully slow (lack of staff - only 2 stations open with a long line waiting). Also, the onboard entertainment system is a bit outdated (no on demand function, works much like an old style TV)"
Pros: "Crew was great, the flight was smooth, and the experience was awesome"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Seats too closely packed little leg room"
Cons: "There wasn't electricity at all on my seat and on some other in the same area. The screen didn't work and I couldn't even charge my phone. Very bad experience!"
Pros: "On time, quick flight, nice people."
Cons: "It was freezing cold."
Pros: "Crew, food was good, comfort"
Cons: "The boarding .. We had to climb the steps to get in .. But the crew apologised"
Cons: "There delay"
Pros: "Food selection and quality were fine. I also enjoyed the entertainment options. Seat area was comfortable and spacious."
Cons: "The flight attendants were uniformly rude and nasty to passengers from start to finish. As I boarded, I asked for a piece of art to be stored in the wardrobe compartment. This was treated as an inconvenience. During and after boarding, flight attendants addressed passengers rudely when encouraging them to take their seats in a timely fashion. Later, when my seat mate politely asked a FA to repeat the food options, she asked, "Excuse me?" several times and seemed very irritated to have to repeat the choices for him. Also, near the end of the flight, a pillow was on the ground and a FA asked those seated in my row to pick it up. We responded that it wasn't ours and she said something to the effect of, "Oh yeah? So how did it get there?" (Maybe because someone else dropped it and we didn't notice?) The FAs seemed irritated to serve passengers at all. Each time they passed through for beverage or meal service, I felt like I was imposing on them. I have never witnessed anything quite like it. Makes me wonder why they were all so upset and and felt it appropriate to speak and act disrespectfully toward customers. (Delta, do you have any insights?) I hope they all got a good night's rest after that haul."
Pros: "Boarding was easy. Mess up at JFK left us on the tarmac for an hour before getting to our gate. Pilot kept us informed. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "The crew could have been more friendly"
Pros: "Great flight!"
Pros: "Great gate agent at JFK on the layover."
Cons: "No assigned seats on second flight til we got to JFK."
Pros: "Friendly Staff"
Cons: "Check in was very hectic due to limited staff and getting bumped by the red carpet flyers. Boarding is always a little congested due to the lines. Better snacks please!!"
Pros: "the meal was OK and they served ice cream midway between SFO and JFK."
Cons: "Late departure. Long delay getting to the get because of congestion at Terminal 4."
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: "I loved that the plane was equipped with televisions. I have a hard time watching a movie on my hand held device."
Cons: "That an international flight didn't allow free luggage and that liquor purchased at the airport could not be consumed on the plane."
Pros: "Flight crew took very good care of us. They served several snacks, meals and free wine on the 8+ hours flight from Prague to NYC. The hot towels to freshen up before meals was a nice touch!"
Pros: "Over all the flight was smooth and great"
Cons: "Kayak, the confirmation email that was sent was incorrect, ended up flying delta - had a scare when checking in at the air europa desk and the attendant says "theres no flights to Malaga" - after further investigation from the staff, we found out it was a Delta flight and NOT and air europa flight"
Pros: "In flight entertainment interface and options were great!"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable!! Spent the entire flight with my knees pressed against the seat pocket. One flight attendant was somewhat rude and unpleasant."
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "The plane was dirty and there was a lot of trash around my seat."
Pros: "Food was nice and plenty. Great movie selection. Very polite crew."
Cons: "The seat was a bit uncomfortable and not big enough."
Pros: "They expedited me in line in Havana because I was on the 1:35 flight to New York and were nothing but friendly about it."
Pros: "Flight was on time and even landed early. Boarding was seamless with bag tag. Seats were comfy. Crew was professional."
Cons: "A drink with no napkins? I know airlines need to cut costs but what if I spilled my drink or want to wipe my hands after eating pretzels Delta? You can still provide napkins."
Pros: "They did fly.... finally"
Cons: "Missed connection to Bangor. Had to overnight in NYC. Substituted smaller plane for this transcontinental flight."
Pros: "The flight attendant. Lovely and professional."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable. Loved that we all had our own TV's with free movies available. And loved that we were all served free food."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "I didnt like that my flight was canceled and rebooked for no reason. This created me big problem in Athens that they couldnt find my ticket in delta. Also I didnt like that i had to stand and wait for 3 hours in the line because my flight was canceled but no one could let us know if there gonna be any flights within the day. I slept in the airport because i couldnt find a hotel to spend the night close to the airport. They were all full and i had no time to find one since I was waiting there for 3 hours with no informational. I slept on the floor and delta didnt even offer us a blanket. That was my worst trip ever."
Pros: "Service was very nice."
Cons: "The flight was insanely delayed. Three hours. With a major product launch the next day, it was not ideal."
Pros: "Smooth flight; informative crew"
Pros: "The crew and the flight were all very pleasant. Highly recommended."
Cons: "Unfortunately the trip was marred by being stuck on the tarmac for the better part of an hour while we waited for out gate. Even when it became available however, we were forced to wait while ATC sent every other plain taxiing through our route which was clearly visible from our vantage point. Not an issue with Delta per se but nonetheless it left us all exhausted and frustrated."
Pros: "Super friendly and attentive crew. Good food. Nice new seats. Great tv entertainment options!"
Pros: "The organization and speediness shown during boarding the aircraft and the perfect timing on departure"
Cons: "The tv screen corresponding to my seat 9A was not working so could not see any movies nor information during the whole flight SDQ to JFK. The condition was reported twice to the flight attendance but was not able to correct it even after resetting the TV settings twice"
Pros: "The attendants on flight were amazing! The flight was perfect! We arrived early!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "Boarding was a mess"
Pros: "The service was fine. I slept the entire flight."
Cons: "I was not impress with the breakfast since I do not eat yogurt. It is a good thing i am not a breafast eater normally because I would have been hungry."
Cons: "No blankets or pillows. Froze"
Pros: "the majority of delta flights i've taken over the past few years have had huge issues - either long delays or cancellations. i won't be flying Delta again"
Cons: "No fruit and cheese available to purchase one the flight. Need more than cookies"
Pros: "Upgraded to business, plane are clean and roomy"
Pros: "Clean plane, friendly crew. Ahead of schedule arrival, pilots did beat to keep in smooth air."
Cons: "Took a bit to get first beverage. Thy ran out of KIND granola bars before reaching the back of the plane."
Pros: "We upgraded our seats to Delta Comfort, at a cost of round $90 per flight. It was well worth it!"
Pros: "I make this trip every month. And this crew is the best I had in a while."
Pros: "The entertainment was great!"
Cons: "I was so uncomfortable in my seat."
Cons: "It was a great flight. We got there earlier then arrive time. Thank You"
Pros: "There were some delays and issues with air traffic control, but they brought out snacks after a half hour which was really nice. Overall, great!"
Pros: "Love Delta...plenty of legroom. Nearly always on time"
Pros: "Liked the plane and the leg room. Had to switch itenary due to weather and the gate agent did a great job."
Pros: "shorter flight"
Cons: "Entertainment system is not working."
Pros: "Delta was smart with boarding early once they realized everyone had cleared security. Flight took off on-time and arrived early. The crew was excellent and exuded energy although it was the end of the day."
Cons: "I ordered a special asian vegetarian meal and it was just plain horrible. I had to settle for the cookie. It's nice that they serve a complimentary meal on the red eye flight but the quality of the food was bad. Entertainment options were also limited although they had some recent box office entries from last year. The leg room also wasn't great but that's expected in economy I guess."
Cons: "Entertainment was working, watching movie when they said done didn't have do they were resetting system. They tried twice taking over an hour and it never came back on for anyone..... :("
Pros: "flt on time"
Cons: "over all everything was just fine"
Pros: "comfortable seats. the food was good, good sandwich."
Cons: "for this type of flight, nothing at all."
Pros: "The best thing was check in, cordial, efficient and helpful"
Cons: "The security is a double, they do it twice, creating delay and discomfort, no distinction for older people like in the US, or people in wheelchairs and the space is tiny. The seats could be better even business class seats were bad and could barely be reclined. Copa sucks. Big delay in luggage, what's the point of going through immigration fast and waiting for over 40 min for luggage all this for $1000 ticket"
Pros: "The crew was excellent!"
Cons: "Maybe more movies"
Cons: "No entertainment. Plane is getting old."
Cons: "Hot and delah"
Pros: "Food was fresh and ok for a short flight."
Cons: "Agents at check in gate were not very helpful and did not communicate the changes in an efficient time or manner."
Pros: "The crew and service"
Cons: "Personalized entertainment system or available through WiFi in tablets."
Pros: "On time!"
Pros: "Copa is always on time"
Cons: "Nothing I’m so glad"
Pros: "Great seat. Right behind first class."
Pros: "On time always"
Cons: "Improve que aire conditioner on the aircraft before departure... is very hot Panama!"
Pros: "Crew was polite and courteous..food and beverages were included in trip."
Pros: "Crew was great. Wasn't expecting a meal(lunch) and full beverage service included. Having a ramp to board was a big plus when travelers have a problem with steps. Something the Big airlines should do until SXM airport is fully functional. Right now flights enter/exit onto the tarmac."
Cons: "Do to the continuing remodeling of SXM airport, checkin was a nightmare. No signage for the correct line for Copa, so what might have been an exit lane from checkin was also being used and agents didn't do anything to stop this. then they went from 4 agents down to 2!"
Pros: "Flight was delayed because "they did not have a plane"....this does no make sense.... The food is always very poor ....my tray was almost half empty with the food....however the small portion of meat (just a snack) was tasty."
Pros: "Same as above."
Pros: "buen avión"
Cons: "falta entretenimiento a bordo"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Food very average"
Pros: "Crew was so friendly and nice"
Pros: "This is a full service airline that serves complimentary food and movies for a similar cost as low-end airlines like Spirit or Frontier. I was traveling from Punta Cana DR to Denver but had connects in Panama City & Miami. Because 3 flights is a long day of traveling I chose the emergency isle for my flight from Panama-Miami so i could stretch out with the extra leg room. Because I didn't speak fluent Spanish though, the crew had to move my seat. They upgraded me to 1st class! Amazing airline! Incredible crew! Shame most airlines in the US with their FU attitude don't operate this way."
Pros: "Great flight to Miami via Copa. Attendants are friendly and helpful. Plenty of room for the legs. Food and entertainment are good, so it was a very pleasant flight. Could repeat anytime."
Pros: "The crew attention and an arirplane in nice conditions"
Cons: "The food is bad"
Pros: "The crew on all of the flights were all very nice. At the end of the day, my suitcase did end up getting shipped to my house within a few days. It was just a little unorganized throughout the process of tracking it down."
Cons: "Following this, my flight in Bogota left 3 hours late. Not only did we board at the time we were supposed to be leaving, but then sat on the runway for an hour and a half before having to go back to the gate to refuel.... All passengers sat on the plane for 3 hours in Bogota before we ever took off with little to no communication as to why. Upon landing in Miami, my bag was then missing which honestly wasn't a big deal - I knew I'd get it back eventually. But with my new flight, I wasn't entirely sure which flight my bag should be with and which airlines (Copa or Avianca) I should go to regarding it. The staff for both were incredibly rude. My suitcase was the one missing and I was the happier, nicer one out of everyone I spoke to. I was told it would be shipped to my house which was great until I got an email saying I could pick up my suitcase at the airport. After searching for 2 hours of where to go and all staff pointing me to a different spot and offering little help, I tried calling the Avianca number I was given for any questions. Unfortunately, there wasn't going to be anyone who spoke English in until after my flight took off. After getting to my final destination, I tried calling the number again to try and sort out where my suitcase was and no one spoke English or could direct me to someone who could. I had to have my friend in Cali call the main office for me to find that my bad was still in Bogota after all of that."
Pros: "I like the easy connection and that we arrived on time. Even that the boarding was late."
Cons: "airplane cold and no blankets. Bad service. No info"
Pros: "The flight left on time"
Cons: "Food is awful and the movie played is the worst children’s movie ever."
Cons: "Too much turbulence"
Pros: "The flight crew was pleasant and was bilingual which made the flight better"
Cons: "It was a lot of turbulence and the plane dropped drastically during the flight. No one spoke English to explain the searches, reason for change in seats. It was difficult to communicate with staff prior to boarding."
Cons: "The quantity of the food was few"
Pros: "Food and sandwiches are tasty."
Cons: "No movie!, uggg... The real problem though is 1) they changed the gate on a connecting flight. Copa seems to make gate changes on all flights without notifying passengers. If you don't watch the board you'll miss your flight. Why not send a crew member to the gate you told passengers to go to , and put a sign by that gate notifying passengers of the change! So stressful!!! 2) In transit passengers catching connecting flights, Copa to Copa, have to go through their security again! What, why?? We cannot eat, drink and relax at the gate because no fluids are allowed AT YOUR GATE. We are not talking ourtside security, you are already in the security areas. Even to go to the bathroom you have to go in and out of security, again! Stupid!! We didn't leave the terminal, and you're making us miserable!"
Cons: "check in"
Pros: "Boarding is very orderly. Flights are always on time with Copa, which makes them a very reliable carrier. Planes are modern, clean and well maintained. Copa offers free headphones, meal and drinks, which is very rare on short flights. I was glad to enter a cool plane, as the Tocumen Airport was without air conditioning service."
Cons: "Tocumen Airport is always crowded, noisy and this time around was without air conditioning. As their main costumer, Copa Airlines should pressure the airport authorities to keep a standby AC system in place or replace it with one that can better handle extreme traffic of people."
Cons: "very cold on the plane and don't provide blankets!"
Pros: "Boarding process went very smooth and plenty of legroom and overhead storage"
Cons: "Volume didn't work on armrest . Volume was stuck on very high volume making the in flight movie not watchable. No choice for food"
Cons: "Everyone everything"
Pros: "Nothing. They said I was a no show on Wednesday Miami Panama and cancelled my reservation. They made me go to The airport and didn't even apologize. Unbelievable mistake."
Cons: "The way I was treated"
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Pros: "Please see above"
Cons: "Wheel chair service was bad"
Pros: "This is not the first time flying this itinerary. So , my review counts for many trips. The good: crew, on time, short connection time"
Cons: "always the worst food. Sometimes, unedible. A bowl of pasta with one tablespoon of tomato sauce. Another choice was tough beef. I mean, really hard to chew beef."
Pros: "I now am a fan of COPA airlines"
Pros: "modern aircraft, everything else was terrible."
Cons: "rude crew, they go out of their way to make you feel uncomfortable small portions of food"
Cons: "Boarding is not as organized as it should be. All groups are not called so order is lost. Not enough agents attending this process. On-board entertainment system is not very good. The food is poor as well."
Pros: "Was a good flight. The staff was very gently"
Cons: "Doesn't had blanquette"
Pros: "I did get a window seat which i enjoy"
Cons: "No entertainment, old plane which didn't have very comfortable seats and the food was not very good. Also, boarding was done in a very disorganized manner in Panama."
Pros: "The same as my flight from Managua to Panama"
Pros: "No delays"
Cons: "People take too long to board the plane"
Pros: "The particular flight attendant serving our area seemed rude."
Pros: "amazing and great customer service"
Pros: "New spacious plane, great crew, comfortable seats, good wine and partiffs. Anything thing is better than flying over priced crappy American Airlines and will avoid giving them a cent anytime I can. Lufthansa did a great job."
Cons: "I kid screamed all-the-way across pond all night. Maybe next force the parents to calm child down. Tough situation and had to really address that issue."
Pros: "Crew was very good. Food was OK."
Cons: "Individual space was tight made worse by some inconsiderate people who put their seats as far back as possible. This should be regulated."
Pros: "Nothing in particular stands out about our flight. We've flown many airlines, Aeroflot, British Air, Delta, Iceland Air and KLM recently. Lufthansa was right in there with the middlet of the pack, with the exception of Iceland Air, which would be at the bottom, but they make no pretenses. The seats, even in the basic economy, which we had,reclined and were comfortable; good legroom. Food and drink offerings were standard. Amounts were small, but everything was the right temperature. Restrooms were clean and well equipped. Movie offerings, not many newer releases. Nothing like Sky news, so you couldn't check weather or current events. Crew was courteous and attentive,"
Cons: "Boarding at Frankfort left much to be desired. First off, the equipment was not ready; we waited 45 min. to board after we got to the gate (early) and due to turbulence over the Atlantic, the pilots could not make up the time. We are senior citizens. We, along with about 25 others in our category, responded to the call for us to get in line to board, stand for 30 min. The gate personnel did not provide any information that boarding was NOT imminent at that point, so you had to stand up to keep your place. Finally, once the boarding for people needing assistance began, we got to choose between using 2 flights of stairs (a faster way to get into the plane) or an elevator to board the plane. (Hello! We have trouble with things like stairs; don't you know that?) The elevator accommodated one wheelchair and 2 or 3 people at a time. More waiting in the jetway to get down to the plane! The whole boarding process took 90 min. from the time we stood up to the time they closed the doors. Bad grades for the the cleaning crew making us wait so long, for the gate personnel for keeping us in the dark and the disorganized process boarding. Nobody cared about our discomfort, not what we would have expected from LH. Consequently, we've revised our opinion of Luthansa. Maybe next time we'll take BA."
Cons: "Hour late departure and still only loaded 1/3 of the luggage. Communication about the luggage problem was poor"
Pros: "Crew extra nice"
Cons: "Poor customer service, was booked off twice without being informed."
Cons: "Lufthansa’s needs to get their staffing act together. It took 1 1/4 hrs to check in due to insufficient staff & then once on board the flight it was announced there was no food available due to staffing shortages"
Pros: "All good"
Pros: "The crew was attentive"
Cons: "We sat on the runway for an hour."
Pros: "The new Airbus was a very cool aircraft."
Cons: "Boarding process is really disorganized."
Pros: "One of the crews interrupted me in the bathroom while I was using the bathroom by banging on the bathroom door saying I had stayed more than 20mins in there and that you guys have time limits to be in the bathroom even when I tried to explain to her from the bathroom that I had constipation, she"
Cons: "She would not listen to me. I had to come out, unfinished, embarrassed and couldn't even wash my hands before going back to my seat. Other than that, every other experience was excellent. Please lecture your crews about constipation and to listen. Thanks."
Pros: "Crew was helpful, food was good"
Cons: "Seating could have been better"
Pros: "Food and crew were terrific."
Cons: "Security at Frankfurt is particularly laborious"
Pros: "it’s wasnt a full flight, so that was nice"
Cons: "bus to the airplane was too warm and had to wait 10 minutes before actually letting us off"
Pros: "What more can you expect for economy travel?"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Pros: "Service efficiency."
Pros: "The crew was polite and did their best"
Cons: "Connection time was way too tight, Plane was overcrowded, food was abysmal, bathrooms filthy, seats are designed to be as uncomfortable as possible, missing and broken parts, tiny pitch, not usable for work, no place for personal device, freezing cold cabin. Worst transatlantic coach experience I’ve had in years, including budget airlines."

But flight was overbooked and I got a standby ticket with no seat while my 4 family members, including 3 on the same reservation, were seated. I had to stand in line as a standby, and then was assigned a seat that didn't recline at all -- not the best for an overnight flight, and having planned, checked in and gotten a seat, IOW done what I was supposed to, it wasn't a nice way to be treated."

Cons: "I was saving my food for later. It was on the tray table. It was removed when I was sleeping. I woke up just in time to asked her before the attendant moved. She reported that she would get me a fresh one. I supposed she had already mixed it with the trash why she promised a fresh one. She never kept her promise. I mentioned it when I was coming off and was told that I was going to get cheese and crackers but what was supposed to happen did not matter that she told me that because it did not happen.
