Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Courtesy of crew members"
Cons: "No vegetarian food available"
Pros: "Good and polite crew"
Cons: "Business class cabin very mediocre for a state of the art latestBoeing plane"
Pros: "I liked that the seats were a 2-4-2 configuration. Most American carriers will have a 3-5-3 seating configuration. JAL has won some prestigious seat awards in 2015 for innovation and comfort."
Cons: "The JAL website specified most trans-atlantic flights with the newer and more spacious seating in Premium Economy. Departing from San Diego, this was only an option once a year I was told at the check in counter. I was counting on extra width and legroom as I am 270 lbs and 73" tall. I was disappointed that these up-gradable seats were not available. I also did not like that we sat on the Oksaka tarmac at a divert airport from Narita (Tokyo) and were not given an option to leave the plane and find alternate transportation of our choice to get us to our destination. I understand the high winds and bad weather was not allowing us to land on time, but we sat on the tarmac for 2 1/2 hours and then left to fly into Narita 5 hours late."
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Having to leave a comfortable setting"
Cons: "We couldn't land in Narita due to bad weather, so we did emergency landing to Haneda to refuel and go back to Narita. But after we got off in Narita, the immigration is chaos. Nobody arranging it and people just going wild, nobody knows where the line should begin. We spent 2 hours plus in the imigration line. So from the scheduled time to arrive at Tokyo 5pm, we get to our Hotel at 2am. Good job Narita airport!"
Pros: "The entertainment package was the best ever encountered with seemingly endless choices, keeping us happy all fight long. The seating seemed a bit crowded, and the food was mediocre. We survived, however, without any problem and overall enjoyed our first Dreamliner flight."
Cons: "Windows were dimmed most of the flight."
Pros: "A sense of quiet efficiency. On time and courteous."
Cons: "Again not enough to padding in seats"
Pros: "There was a huge check-in line but it went quickly because they had 8-10 ticket agents with luggage 'helpers' for the agents. Of course there was a problem with my reservation that they had never seen before which manifested itself by them not being able to print my boarding pass. They called Tokyo and were told that they had never seen my problem before either. Anyway, the ticketing supervisor stayed with me for 45 minutes until they could over come the problem. I would be a rich man if I had a nickel for every 'So-sorry' I got that day."
Pros: "nothing at all...horrible aircraft, horrible flight"
Cons: "1) could not pre-book seat as it was a codeshare. You should change that...better on a budget carrier 2) The plane is not competitive, ancient entertainment system, no power in seats to plug in 3) Entertainment system did not work for all but 10 minutes or so of the flight. 4) food was really horrid, no japanese option!"
Pros: "Plenty of room for economy seats. Good food. Free movies and music. Friendly service."
Cons: "Air temperature was super hot and uncomfortable."

Pros: "Food, good, Too Much even! Beers, sweedish meatballs, and caramel Gelato just to name a few. Actual seat comfort was fine. Stewards performed well."

Checking in sucked, a whole explanation would wreck this page.....could not reserve seats near spouse. ....in flight entertainment was less than mediocre....seat positioning was grueling not able to get comfortable for the 13hour trip."
Pros: "I was treated like an important customer. Many airlines do not do this."
Pros: "Great friendly staff, good food, good entertainment."
Pros: "I loved how accommodating the flight was. I would use JAL from this point forward if possible."
Pros: "Everything on the 787 except the seats in Biz Class"
Cons: "Biz class seats on this 787 recline to almost flat, but not flat & the remaining tilt is enough to make you slip toward your feet, so it's less comfortable than 777 biz class seats"
Pros: "Courteous and excellent service. It was a better choice than a cheapo alternative I have taken before. Seat was comfortable for the two hour trip. Everyone seemed happy with the flight which made the tone of seatmates pleasant."
Pros: "Plane service was good, comfortable, punctual and ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Food was ok,"
Pros: "Amazing service; flight attendants were very quick to respond to requests and very very polite and friendly Comfortable space; considering it was economy the seating was surprisingly roomy"

I kept myself entertained with the in-flight movies for most of the trip, they have quite a library to choose from. Thank you for making my long trip easy!"
Pros: "Nothing... Being put on the wrong airline is incredibly degrading ..."
Cons: "I paid for JAL and was put on American airlines YOU WILL NEVER HAVE MY BUSINESS AGAIN ... Kayak or jp\american airline. I hope you hire a manager who doesn't lie to their customers... Don't think it's a lie ?? That's BC greed is blinding. Good day"

Pros: "Nice comfortable flight at convenient times. Great cabin crew and service."
Cons: "It was a packed flight. I'm assuming that given this, I could not change seats. While the ANA staff were helpful, I myself had trouble on this flight and became unwell. I sought help from ANA upon landing and received it."
Pros: "Service, Cleanliness and Overall Quality"
Cons: "Seats could be better"
Cons: "Salad and fruit came Frozen"
Pros: "I loved that the interior was completely darkened for about seven of the 12 hours of flight time."
Cons: "I just couldn't get comfortable in economy class. Traveling in business or first class was visibly MUCH more comfortable, so be aware that it may be difficult to get to sleep."
Pros: "ANA did a great job of keeping customers informed about every detail regarding the delays we experienced with the flight. ANA did a great job of finding me a new flight when delays caused by the ground crew caused me to miss a connecting flight."
Cons: "Late boarding caused us to miss connecting flights."
Pros: "Wish there was more movies in English"
Pros: "It was an awesome flight, very nice and great service,"
Pros: "The flight was less busy than usual (it was an Easter Sunday departure) and so service was a bit more relaxed and friendly than usual instead of just efficient. Left gate a few minutes early and arrived 20 min early in Tokyo. Flight time is pretty good - 8pm departure which gives time for a relaxed day sightseeing in Dusseldorf before going to the airport in the late afternoon, Arrival in Tokyo is about 2pm which would be a good time to check in to hotels and relax. Food was good - dinner after take-off and a brunch-type meal a few hours before landing. Entertainment system is also very good although I'd flown a lot recently so seen the films I wanted to see already. Sometimes ANA are just "good" but this one was the best one I've flown recently."
Cons: "Surprised that their recently acquired 787s don't all have WLAN! Wanted to do some work ... but ... maybe enforced disconnection is a good thing sometimes :)"
Pros: "Great service and good food"
Cons: "Nothing felt like they were glad to have me onboard."
Pros: "Didn't realize I'm flying united airlines. Nowhere on my itinerary was it mentioned. The whole time I thought I'm with ANA all the way"
Cons: "The flight itself was good but booking with bayaan, never again. I have used kayak many times but for the first time since I booked vayama changed me flight 6 times. They also could have mentioned my first 2 legs of my flight was with united. I tried to check in online thru ANA, couldn't go thru with many attempts until finally I called and the agent mentioned to check in thru united."
Cons: "The food quality was slightly lower than that on the outboud flight. I ordered Hindu Meal."
Pros: "I love the food and the girls was fantastic"
Cons: "Boarding bridge was not available at Narita airport. Stairs (trap) to ground were tough for my mother who has bad legs."
Pros: "highly efficient processes on ground (Narita airport), clean and enough space in airplane, exteremely supportive and polite staff"
Pros: "crew was awesome! Service was outstanding"
Cons: "a little warm on the plane. food was ordinary"
Pros: "I fly around often, at least 10 times a year, and ANA has always had the best service, cleanest planes, and the best entertainment. I recommend flying with ANA anytime you travel."
Cons: "I booked my meal while booking my tickets, but still I didn't get the food. They told me that they don't have any information about my meal.. I paid so much money for tickets and they are saying they don't have meal . When I talked to ground staff about this they also said the same thing and when I asked them what about my next flight meals they said that will let me know at the the time of boarding that they can provide me with food or not. Hell it was so disgusting that you guys will tell me at the time of boarding that you are going to let me know whether you are going to give me food or not.. And they know that I am not alone I was traveling with my 5 year old son also. They are really hopeless. I am really disappointed"
Pros: "This flight seemed to go very quickly. A wonderful selection of good movies and TV, adjustable headrests (up and down as well as side wings), decent amount of room and foot space, polite crew, good food!"
Cons: "can't think of any.!"
Pros: "staff was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "movies were not sp good"
Pros: "Great comfort."
Cons: "Limited entertainment compared to other airlines."
Pros: "very attentive crew, plane was well cared for, food was mediocre."
Cons: "food was barely passable. awful landing."
Pros: "Very comfortable and nice lighting. Not too bright"
Cons: "The overhead light is too far up and when I turn on the light it's lightning up more than just my seat. Other people beside me are sleeping and it's too bright to turn on the light."
Pros: "Not a single thing. I will be talking to a reporter about this since they are interested in the story"
Cons: "I left 3 hours early from my hotel. This was my first time ever being in the Philippines so I did not fully grasp the amount of traffic. I arrived at the check in counter with 52 minutes to spare and they told me I could not board. The plane wasnt even boarding passengers yet. I even went as far as to say that I would leave my luggage as I had to get on the flight. They did not allow this either. They said that I would need to get on another flight. To add insult to injury they did not credit me with ANY of what I had purchased for my previous flight since I ordered through Kayak. I am 100% dissatisfied with ANA and I am asking kayak to rectify what they have done. I have already emailed ANA upper management and will be taking this to social media, the news, and any other outlet I can find. I had to pay for a hotel, miss 2 days of work and pay for a 700 dollar "premium" seat ticket since that was all they claimed they had. I find that last part funny, since I saw about 12 empty seats on my flight. I am hoping to hear from kayak so they can explain why they do business with a company that clearly does not care about it's customers."
Pros: "Courteous crew good food and choice for entertainment"
Cons: "Would appreciate better seats"
Pros: "Excellent service! Previous notice me that boarding time & gate number~ I'd like to book the tickets here!!=)"
Pros: "The staff were very friendly and efficient."
Cons: "No explanation on how to use entertainment."
Pros: "The food was amazing - they had no right to make food that good. I really was blown away."

Pros: "Crew and entertainment"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "It was a rough landing."
Pros: "Food is good. Bottled water is provided during meal. Leg room in economy class is good"
Cons: "Seats are already auto assigned. I did online checkin as early as it opened but no more seats to choose from. On-flight movies are limited and old movies"
Pros: "ANA has always been a great airline to fly.They treat the passegers with respect.That is something the airlines from the United States needs to learn.Served a meal on a two hour flight.That is something you can't get on a six hour flight from airlines in the United States."
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "I was given the impression that i was flying on ANA planes when I booked the ticket. After I paid, I noticed that the planes with ANA flight numbers were actually United airline planes. The 11-12 hours traveling from Chicago was on an OLD plane that had TV screens way up high. Most unpleasant flight."
Pros: "Good on time"
Cons: "Small table"
Pros: "Very accomodating crew and they are all smiling all the time"
Pros: "ANA is always great. Their food is always high quality even for econmy class. The crew also leaves out refreshments so you can help yourself if you are still hungry."
Cons: "The seats don't really recline at all"
Cons: "The flight was so packed. The boarding process took forever! No room for even small carry-ons. And as a 5' 4" 125lb woman, I had problems fitting in the seats."

Pros: "Crew as usual very kind"
Cons: "They put me on stand by because flight was overbooked"
Pros: "We flew Business Class. The crew was professional and attentive. The food was definitely a nice cut above."
Cons: "Nothing that I can offer. If I needed to make another trip anywhere ANZ flies, they would be my first choice every time."
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"
Pros: "Again boarding was smooth"
Cons: "The seats were terrible"
Pros: "The crew were helpful and polite"
Cons: "The boarding process was too long and chaotic in Zurich The seats are uncomfortably close together and there is not enough room to move at all. I would say for bigger size people, they mau even be unsafe. I have had high regards for Swiss airline until my recent trip. I will definitely look for other options for my future trips."
Pros: "I was gratified to see that the 777 Boeing aircraft have now replaced the older Airbus aircraft..... This is my sixth time traveling to Switzerland from San Francisco on Swiss....Their service in my opinion remains excellent......The cabin crew was cheerful friendly yet remained very efficient at the same time... The food was very good, , The two meals that comes with one's Ticket still also comes with complimentary beverage service .... and even a warm moist towel is offered towards the end of the flight ... not bad for a seat in coach ...."
Cons: "I had no complaints except that there was a 40+ minute delay in receiving our checked baggage..... this could have been a problem With the airport ground crew at Zurich airport ....."
Pros: "Food was tasty. Crew was very good."
Cons: "Legroom was horrible, and I’m 5’-7”! Ancient entertainment units."

Cons: "Several delays and gate changes."
Pros: "Delayed...delayed and delayed some more!!!!!"
Pros: "Everything was very good. From the staff, to the food and comfort. Excellent!"
Pros: "The flight itself was very enjoyable. The only negative aspect was that the first leg of the flight was delayed long enough that I almost missed my connecting flight and my baggage was lost."
Cons: "The real reason for the negative review is a combination of the cost of this flight, loss of my baggage and poor service after the flight. I paid nearly $4,500 for an economy ticket from New York to New Delhi. The first leg of the flight, from New York to Zurich was delayed long enough that I made my connecting flight to Delhi within seconds of them closing the gate and as a result my baggage was lost. Once I got to Delhi I had to take a connecting flight to Goa and then drive an hour to my destination, where I was attending a good friend's wedding. All of my baggage was lost during transit by the airline, and unfortunately they never delivered by baggage to my hotel...so I was without formal clothes and normal clothes for the wedding for 4 days. The customer service line was no help, and the airline refused to deliver the baggage to me...the closest they would bring it was the Goa airport which was an hour and a half away."
Pros: "The crew did all they can \The Swiss Airlines lounge was superb"
Cons: "The seats are not comfortable The crew insisted I can't bring on a 22" Carry-on"
Pros: "Easy check in. Crew efficient and personal attention."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Cabin is old and needs updating. For the cost of the ticket, I expected better entertainment, more room, and better food."
Pros: "perfect and easy"
Pros: "Flight was fine! Snack and beverages were good. However, when you buy the ticket for the international flight, what they don’t tell you is the extra €40- FORTY EURO you will spend to check a not big bag. For this reason I would fly with another airline next time."
Cons: "Extra fees for checked bags"
Pros: "Staff, and service were good."
Cons: "We had to Run from our arrival gate to our departure gate, and take a train, and go through immigration and then a second documents check. It looked to me like Swiss Air knew we were running close as the flight rarely (if ever) leaves on time. It was stressful for us and for the 30+ others who were still in line in immigration when the flight time passed. It turned out to not be a problem but the published times are unrealistic. Seats were tight and comfort in cattle class is NON Existent sleep on an 8 hour flight was not even possible."
Pros: "Too hot. Even after several requests nobody lowered the temperature. Very cold manners except for one attendant who was friendly"
Cons: "Service, Temperature, Attitude"
Pros: "The food was good and the crew was nice."
Cons: "No entertainment offered and the seats were cramped."
Pros: "Seats just as small as US carriers, but in better shape, cleaner, less ratty overall. I also like that Swiss Air doesn't fuss with boarding everyone in 8 different classes. First class through one door and everyone else through the other, nice and easy."

Cons: "I wish the seats were more comfortable"
Pros: "Relaxed check-in"
Pros: "Best airline I have ever flown"

Cons: "Could use some more seating space"
Cons: "Both flights were excellent. At Zurich airport is were I was disappointed in some staff at the gate. Two employees were rude towards me but the flight home & the staff made up for it for being very friendly & helpful. Over all would fly Swiss air again"
Pros: "Loved the cute attendant we had on flight :)"
Cons: "Old TV screen and remote"
Pros: "The crew (and food to a certain degree) are the only things at the moment that represent a bright side of Swiss Airlines."
Cons: "I have flown with Swiss several times. Every single time, I had to run in between my gates to make it to the connecting flight. And in the process of the turmoil and stress of rushing, I have witnessed airport people being extremely rude with passengers who were not at fault that their original flight was late and were merely trying to make it on time. Correspondingly, every single time I flew with Swiss, I never knew whether or not I will get my luggages. Simply put, your organization is poor and your flights are unfailingly late!!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and the chocolates were nice. Food was mediocre and I'm not sure I'd take Swiss again."
Cons: "Seat pitch was too small and the food didn't taste that great. I was lucky enough to get a whole row to myself but on the way back I did not and there is not a lot of room at all. And for an 11 hour flight it was really uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Great experience. GOod comfortable flight, crew and overall services"
Cons: "I wish there were more bollywood albums and more bollywood movies...to choose from"
Cons: "Never happened because I was rerouted through Istanbul. And for anyone checking Istanbul is 3 hours in the wrong direction to my ultimate destination."
Pros: "The food was great, the seats were thin and we had a lot of room and the staff was super!"
Cons: "Nothing, we would have stayed in this airplane longer...."
Pros: "I have been flying to Greece and back many years now. I have never seen,such comfort in a plane,such great service,so many snacks and meals,and the crew was coming by every 30-45 minutes for water. We were served Swiss chocolate and also the best ice cream I have had in my life. Best flight and best plane I have flown in my life."
Pros: "The steward was friendly"
Cons: "1) Assigned seat but was allowed to change seat 24 hours before online check in but at baggage drop off at airport, I was shocked that Swiss Air did not abide to our selected seats changed and gave us the initial seat assigned. 2) At airport check in, none of the ground crew able to gave us good explanation or assistance. 3) Enterainment has to reboot twice. Audio selection cannot be play. No USB port for charging phone."
Cons: "The plane was old and the bathroom was really dirty"
Pros: "The seats The crew"
Cons: "Delayed on two flights Too hot on the first flight despite a number of people complaining"

Cons: "Food and entertainment were not good. Person next to me smelled bad"

She has orthrytis and was not be able to walk long distance, but no body provide her wheelchair and did not help her to find a gate for her next flight. It was really disappoin"
Pros: "Good movies good food"
Pros: "The staff the staff the staff. They made the trip so enjoyable. The A330-300 aircraft was smooth and silent. Very impressed"
Cons: "The seats in business class were not as soft as they could be but very impressed overall and good value for the cost of the business class ticket"
Pros: "Everything was good apart from food"
Cons: "The low calories special meal was inedible. The protein was so overcooked."
Pros: "The cabin crew was very kind. The kofte tasted good."
Cons: "They "board" an hour before takeoff but there weren't enough seats at the gate, so for half an hour, no one actually boarded, we just stood or sat on the floor with our carry-on."
Pros: "Entertainment was pleasant. Food was provided which was nice. Drinks were good. Flight staff was pleasant."
Cons: "Touch screens didn't work very well."
Cons: "My Miles&Smiles were not added to the trip."
Pros: "Comfort and service"
Cons: "We stood in line for a while, when it was our turn to check in they told us we were in the wrong line, unfortunately we didn’t saw a sign that told us that we had to be somewhere else because we were flying to Israel. At our second check in the guy at the desk was very unfriendly. Not something you think oh he is happy he could help us. Not at all. He was very grumpy"
Pros: "Brand new, clean and comfy plane, wonderful entertainment. However, frustrating security check performed by Gözen Air Services, mediocre food (it was way better years ago), useless cabin crew with terrible English."

Pros: "Turkish airlines is the only airlines I fly with for many reasons. Their quaility is a lot better than most of the airlines out there. ( I've flown with many) Although it does tend to be a little bit more expensive it's deffinetly worth it in my opinion."
Cons: "However, unfortunately I have noticed a decline in their service. The food was not as great as it usually is. I had salmon and it was very dry. With the amount of money given to the flight they could have paid attention to it more. It also happened to be my birthday on the flight and my friend who was flying with me called the airlines to ask if there was anything special that can be done. Happily they said that they did do celebrate birthdays and anniversarys. Sadly though nothing was done. Overall was it horrible I would say no but they are starting to loose quality"
Pros: "Good entertainment system with lots of options."
Cons: "The plane was uncomfortably warm throughout the (long!) flight, which made it difficult to get any rest."
Pros: "friendly service, excellent crew, comfortable seats Actually it was my daughter recommendation to fly Turkish Airlines as she flies it almost exclusively We love Turkish Airlines As for Istanbul airport, I had an excellent experience while transiting. Well equipped, clean, nice restaurants and food Good experience overall I loved my flight"
Cons: "turbulence throughout but this is beyond your control I know, we just had nasty weather not on our way from Los Angeles to Istanbul though"
Pros: "Quick check in. Nice staff."
Pros: "The flight was great and the service was wonderful. The plane was new and clean. A huge plus was the video entertainment in every seat along with headphones and USB Charging Port. They poured me a double Glenlivet scotch on the rocks at NO CHARGE!"
Cons: "I booked three round-trip tickets from LAX to Athens. Our daughter did not fly with us there but we checked with ticketing in LAX and they booked her seat anyway. The issue came when we tried to leave Athens the airlines then said that I had to purchase a one-way ticket! They informed me that the flight was cancelled for my daughter because she didn't fly to Athens. The ticket was almost $1,500.00 and I intend to get my money back but it was unfortunate that they had to charge me for it in the first place."
Cons: "I t would have been much better to have a faster check in process"
Cons: "We were in business. Food and service quality has gone downhill since last year. Cabin temperature is very warm. Staffs are not friendly. They spent a lot of time chatting in the galley talking and eating off food serving trays. Yikes!"
Pros: "food is always good..crew too"
Cons: "why more spece in short hail flights then long haul??"
Cons: "Flight staff very pleasant and accommodating. Have always found "foreign"airlines have always been very good I will not fly domestic airlines out of the country Bad unpleasant experiences"
Cons: "Nice people"
Pros: "Love it"
Pros: "I love everything about this airline. I'm a fanboy of Turkish airlines every time. Great in cabin entertainment, great service, always awesome aircrafts."
Cons: "i had asked for an aisle seat and ended up on seat 7C which is the one that is next to the seat where the stewardess sits down. I wouldn't have minded at all but my seat and the one next to it didnt recline anywhere near as much as every other seat in the whole airplane. It was really uncomfortable for me and the person who was seating next to me. Hopefully this will be the last time i get stuck in that kind of seat."
Cons: "Crew was confused and didn't work well, food horrible and they lost my luggage . Bad customer service after lost luggage from call center. Rude customer service representative and inaccurate information many times. Very frustrating"
Pros: "Some staff wer helpful"
Cons: "Mostly as a mother traveling with a stroller, they expected me to haul everything on my own. Stroller,car seat, child, two bags! They were impatient and impolite, unresponsive when I used the steward attendance call for water or to move my child's tray (for over two hours)... there was much I didn't care with this airline, from their customer call service (I filed a complaint) to the state in which my box arrived in Mumbai (again filed a complaint but no one folllowed up with me). I wouldn't recommend this airline to anyone, especially if traveling with a child."
Pros: "They should inform layover passengers about getting their visa for free hotel accommodations."
Pros: "Good food Good service very good entertainment"
Pros: "I just liked the entertainment. I watched couple of movies comfortably. That's it."
Cons: "I didn't like the food, crew. Most crews didn't SMILE, din't greet properly. It is very disappointing. Why they don't Smile? During my trip to Atl to Istambul I asked one crew to give me some water. But she didn't give me. After then I asked another crew. It made me very upset. I am not satisfied about food. It is not standard. It needs to be improved. Train your crews how to SMILE and Greet."
Cons: "Boarding and airplane age."
Pros: "Excellent price, food, staff, and accommodations! Highly recommend Turkish Airlines!!!"

Pros: "Food and service was great. Got a bit sick on plane and staff was very helpful until I was better."
Cons: "WOULD NOT TAKE TURKISH AIRLINES AGAIN IF MY LIFE DEPENDED ON IT. I took a flight from JFK to Tel Aviv, with a a layover in Istanbul. Turkish delayed my first flight by 2 hours, which caused me to miss my layover, and the next flight from Istanbul to Tel Aviv was not until the next day. They made me pay for a visa to get into Istanbul, took me to a hotel about 30 minutes from the airport, and then did not serve me any food for dinner. The Istanbul airport was a mess, the flight attendants and everyone working for the airline was EXTREMELY UNHELPFUL. Then on the return flight, they changed the time of my flight at the last minute, which caused me to almost miss it. On top of that, they lost my baggage and took a week to get it back. DO NOT EVER FLY TURKISH, YOU WILL REGRET IT."

Pros: "The service was great. The flight attendants are professional, accommodating and very helpful. Inflight entertainment is great."
Cons: "The temperature runs high on most Turkish Airlines flights that I have taken, especially the red eye flights. Every time that I have flown from Istanbul to Almaty, the plane is hot and people are sweating. This time I asked for the temperature to be adjusted, and after about 4 times, I finally felt a bit better - but still not comfortable. I don't know if this is a malfunction, or an opportunity to save money?"
Pros: "The food is always good!"

Cons: "Seating seems slightly cramped."
Pros: "Everything else was good Crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "A crew member at check in gave me stupid trouble about my computer being inside my carry on. That never happened to me before and it was really awful. No other airlines cares how I store my computer during the flight. He required it being outside the carry on, and I still don't understand why. After a while his colleague let me go with no problem. The seating at the seat had some built in ventilation system or something that took space from space for feet and that was uncomfortable especially in the long flight. That machine could be placed way better. For example on the bottom of the seat 28."
Pros: "Crew brilliant but seat very tight"
Cons: "Boarding procedure slow and hectic"
Pros: "Very helpful and accommodating"
Pros: "Entertainment and food was good. Pilot kept good communication with passengers. Some of the inflight crew were nice and willing to help"

Pros: "My previous flights with Lufthansa have been in business class, which is fabulous. However, on this occasion flew economy because I got an exceptionally cheap ticket. I was pleasantly surprised. Obviously the seat was narrower, but had plenty of legroom. The food in economy in Lufthansa is better than most airlines’ business class meals. The crew is very courteous and professional. You really can’t go wrong with this airline."
Cons: "There was no downside."
Pros: "Ended up flying with air canada after they switched us"
Cons: "Lufthansa switched us three times , and then when we got to the airport in toronto it was air Canada. They found our grandparents tickets but not ours. Ridicule our flight was supposed to be only 1h layover, inatead it’s 6 and we are going to miss all our next travel accommodations."

Cons: "None. The seats on this Airbus 320 were more comfortable on this leg than on the transatlantic leg of the journey."
Pros: "The plane was nearly empty, so there was a lot of space to spread out. The entertainment options were almost limitless and the food was plentiful and tasty."
Cons: "Since it was an overnight flight, I planned on sleeping, however, it seemed the flight attendants were coming through all the time. While I appreciated dinner and breakfast, it really wasn't necessary for that time of day and the length of flight. I also tried to upgrade and even though the premium economy clear was almost empty, they did not accept my bid. I would have understood if the flight was full but it wasn't. I'm not sure why they wouldn't want the extra money from me?"
Cons: "I haven’t received my luggage and I have been in Mumbai for almost 3 days!!! I have to buy new clothes and plenty of toiletries, I have only had 1 phone call from the airline to tell me my bags never left SFO!!! Wtf!"

Pros: "Everything overall"

Pros: "Great crew. Very comfortable flight, good food. On schedule"

Pros: "The boarding was fast and efficient, and the entertainment system was modern."
Cons: "The pilot didn't get us over the intercom even once. No communication at all from the cockpit. Staff was ok, but not very friendly. Seats were very close together in my row (30)… but other rows had seats with more legroom m."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Seating arrangement and lack of comfort :( Was impossible to get a seat assignment. Will not fly Lufthansa again."
Pros: "Gate and flight crew were polite and attentive. As I could not check in online, I asked for an aisle seat at gate and crew did all they could to provide one. The flight was easy. Everyone in the flight crew offered their assistance before I asked and they did with a smile. Seat was comfortable and I didn't ask for upgrade. I paid for extra room on outbound flight only to sit in the most cramped seat ever. And on this flight I didn't bother paying for extra room and was pleasantly surprised I wasn't sardined. Very nice Lufthansa! The pilot made minimal interruptions and said only important stuff. No unnecessary pleasantries. Thank you!"
Pros: "On time departures/ arrivals.. great friendly and professional cabin crew"

Pros: "Crew were excellent entertainment was great, everything moved swiftly"
Cons: "Food was not much and not that tasty"
Pros: "Most of all."
Cons: "The headphone connection method. It is difficult to replace the headphone w/ your own because the connector is located deep in the headphone compartment and you cannot see it in easily. As far as you use the built-in headphones, no problem."
Pros: "Flights were on time. Both Air Canada and Lufthansa Airlines Service, including sitting and boarding process were relatively smooth."
Cons: "12 hour long flight from Frankfurt to LA was exhausting."
Pros: "Just much more professional than US carriers... Also much more leg room in economy class then most US carriers"
Pros: "I liked the service and friendliness of the crew and number of items available on the flight."
Cons: "The food was not amazing (but not the worst I've had either) . The flight announcements were a bit annoying as they kept interrupting the movies (mainly because they were off and on)"
Cons: "We booked our group of four with Lufthansa, paying $300 more than equivalent flights on competing airlines, specifically because our 20 month old daughter fits within Lufthansa's age, height, and weight limits for using the bassinet. We have reserved our tickets and the bassinet over two months in advance, paying $35 extra per seat for these reservations, and even got an email that specifically stated "bassinet confirmed". On the flight, when it came time to install the bassinets, the flight attendant came to us, took a look at our daughter, and said that she will not fit in the bassinet, that she is too tall, and too heavy, and suggested that we should have checked the limits for the bassinet before coming on the flight. When we inquired as to the actual limits, she could not provide any numbers, only said that she could see that our daughter is too big for it. When the family next to us got their bassinet, it became very obvious that our daughter would fit in the bassinet, and we pointed out that she was well below the height and weight limits published on the Lufthansa website. Only then did the flight attendant admit that there were other babies on the flight, and they only had four bassinets on the plane, despite having 11 slots where bassinets could be installed. Our reservation months in advance did not matter - we did not get the bassinet. As compensation, we were offered some Lufthansa miles, or 50 euros for in-flight duty free shopping. However, we lost close to 1000 dollars as a group when we chose to fly Lufthansa rather than a less expensive airline. We were very uncomfortable throughout the flight, having to hold my daughter in my arms for over five hours. We are are still very upset that the crew blatantly lied to us."
Pros: "The attendant showed concern and promised to report, great attitude"
Cons: "I was surprised that my meal request was not passed to the airlines"
Cons: "They boarded everybody at once through a jetbridge made of glad. Very hot in there. You were stopped in a crowded jet bridge in 90 degrees for 25 minutes because they board everybody at once and it took time to get passengers into their seat."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Seats are hard"
Pros: "The service was good. The food was average. I liked the complimentary wine."
Cons: "They lost my bag. Huge problem."
Pros: "Good service, but not overly bothersome. The timing of lights and meals is just right for the body clock. Good selection of audio - video choices. All in all a very nice flight."
Cons: "Boarding sequence was a little different, in the end all fine, just different by boarding the rear of section of the plane - economy first."
