Pros: "Nothing. There was no flight. The flight was cancelled and you did not notify us. We found it out ourselves by accident. We tried to contact you guys but we could not call or anything other. You guys suck"
Cons: "Notify your customers when the flight is cancelled. Thats the least you can do. Very unprofessional"
Cons: "Nada, I slept through this leg and the staff let me be."
Pros: "Never got on the plane due to weather restrictions in the connecting flight prior to this flight. Called SWISS customer service on a Russian line, were told to get a paper from another Russian airport that no flights were leaving the city. Did that. when arrived to Moscow no SWISS customer representatives were at the stations and had to end up buying a completely new ticket to get home."
Cons: "Have customer service representative available at the airport 24/7 knowing that some people arrive from all parts of the country."
Cons: "The seats are small with very little leg room"
Pros: "Crew was great. Seats were uncomfortable. No air. It was extremely hot."
Pros: "I loved that every seat had a pillow, blanket and head-phones waiting. The movie selection was great, too.The service was excellent. Love having metal utensils, and not plastic."
Cons: "No fault of the airline, but when passengers recline their seat backs all the way, it's very difficult for the person behind. Two vegetarians meals were offered - which is ok, but I was unsure if either had sufficient protein; plus the side dishes were all starches."
Cons: "Seat confort"
Cons: "The boarding organize by group could improve the process"
Pros: "Exelent Crew, great food and service I really like Swiss airlines. The best so far!!! Thanks"
Cons: "Did NOT know ticket was economy light!!!! I WAS UPSET WE HAD TO PAY BAGGAGE FEE!!!!"
Pros: "Same as above- wonderful crew, smooth take off and landing Very pleasant flight attendants the entire flight Service was great"
Cons: "Again / wish all airlines had more comfortable seating in economy clas"
Pros: "Very kind crew. Great food. Nice leg room even for economy."
Cons: "This was one of the most empty flights I’ve ever been on. With that, lots of room for carry on baggage. I fail to see why it was necessary at all. It delayed my journey when time was of the essence."
Pros: "Professional courteous staff"
Cons: "Tray table slid downward whenever it was opened. Headphones quit after the first hour and got scratchy. So little room..tiny video screen. I could not get advance seating because of a code share flight."
Pros: "Best trip ever, flight crew fantastic. Great hospitality from the crew, pleasant and very personable. Will definitely fly Swiss Air again."
Pros: "Nothing stood out"
Cons: "Nothing Stood out"
Pros: "I loved the upgrade to business class. It was private, spacious, and very hospitable."
Pros: "Nice Aircraft, nice crew"
Pros: "Excellent crew, shiny disposition"
Cons: "Entertainment: not many new movies worth watching. Not enough TV programs offered."
Pros: "Great service; Very comfortable lie flat beds with lots of leg room"
Cons: "They rebooked me on a later flight this same day. This flight to Geneva (change of airports) was late and the flight to Vienna took off with no passengers from our flight, after we were told it would wait. ' I paid for premium seats and did not get rebooked for the same. I am sitting in the Geneva airport for 7 and 1/2 hours, losing my meetings in Vienna. I never expected such poor service from Swissair."
Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived a bit early."
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "It was a great flight. Even the food wad good, especially the snacks!"
Pros: "I really liked the "About my flight" application on the viewing screens because it always gave me an idea of what we were flying over and how much longer we woulld be in the air. The food was excellent and I was pleasantly surprised that I could have wine with dinner or any time the attendants offered beveragess. The attendants were always professional and helpful. They all were fluent in English as well as several other languages. It was a nice touch when the attendant wore white gloves when he or she was collecting passengers' trash after meals and/or beverage service. I loved the cheese that was served at dinner."
Cons: "My seat was a little confined when I put my carry-on bag in front of me on the flight to Zurich, but it was roomier when I stowed my carry-on in the overhead compartment on the returtn flight."
Pros: "No assists"
Cons: "Poor service"
Cons: "I liked everything except the airplane itself, which I hated. I was fortunate enough to get an exit row on my long flight going over; I did not get lucky on my way home. The flights between Zurich and Brindisi were more comfortable than the long haul flights. The long haul flights are abominable and should be outlawed by governments as they are currently configured. The boy next to me literally could not fit his legs/thigh bones in the space provided by his seat. I did okay as I am not tall, until the woman in front of me decided to lean back. It is not her fault, however, though I thought nasty things about her and periodically tried to dig my knees into her back to get her to lift up her seat. The fault belongs entirely to Swiss Air, which chooses to treat human customers as steerage. The only thing that made the experience worse was the impossibility of choosing my seat online for my return because I had only a smart phone with not-great wifi available. Choosing one's seat should not be dependent on having good wifi and a computer, however. It is bad practice to "sell" seat choices. The families around me were not able to sit together because of this shoddy, greedy practice on the part of the airline. It is also not fair, subsequently, that other passengers are faced with giving up the seats they've chosen, or been given, to assist families in sitting together. Honestly, the extent of the greed on the part of airlines nowadays is astonishing. What used to be a thoroughly enjoyable way of traveling has become an ordeal at best."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Engine shut down juast as the safety briefing started but all was good when it started again. A light meal would have been better than yoghurt & biscuits. Staff were very helpful."
Pros: "good entertainment system"
Cons: "not enough leg room"
Pros: "Great complimentary chocolate."
Cons: "You would think that after spending 1100 on a ticket that a passenger could chose their own seat within 24 hours of their flight. Nope. They wanted me to pay for my seat after already spending 1100. Then they said I was randomly selected for a TSA check in Zurich. Seriously. And there was no TSA agent in sight doing the check. It was a Swiss Airline Employee. Never had that happen even in the USA."
Pros: "good food, excellent entertainment selection"
Cons: "late boarding, late take off, missed my connection"
Pros: "The crew made the best they can."
Cons: "The airplane was to old. The company should put a better one ."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and friendly"
Cons: "The legroom was good but the seats were very narrow causing larger people to overlap the armrests"
Pros: "Several rounds of beverage service along with tasty food and a great large-display entertainment, we were very pleased with the blankets and entertainment, and frequent service. It helped we had 3 seats for two people also."
Pros: "Clean and efficient plane, crew and procedures."
Pros: "Your crew is amazing."
Pros: "entertainment selection"
Cons: "upgrade entertainment system, needs touch screen and screen wouldn't turn off completely. leg room and space under seat"
Pros: "Excellent customer service, and on time flight"
Pros: "Actually being able to breathe on this trip, as opposed to the first trip on your horrible planes."
Cons: "Being FORCED to spend extra money simply to be able to reserve the last row of two seats, in the faint hope of being able to achieve some level of comfort which was unattainable on the first flight. Having only two seats in our row and the one in front of us made the flight tolerable, but also enhanced the ludicrous ineptitude of the previous flight, wherein we were treated like so much livestock in a train car, heading for slaughter. I will never, NEVER, fly Swiss Air again."
Pros: "crew very friendly.food excellent- thai curry vegetables, snacks. the flight arrived ahead of schedule despite slight delay. I appreciated that this was Swiss operated so no charge for skis, boots and poles."
Cons: "Not sure why loading is not by aisles, seems not that efficient"
Cons: "Hi, my flight was delayed for more then 20 minutes and I had next connection flight in short period of time. Even that they now that I will lose next connection they didn't wanted to change my flight to previous flight and they DID had extra seat in a plane."
Cons: "If you put the seats this close together, with the amount of recline. Once one person on the fligh reclines their seat it forces everyone else to do so. You can't eat if the person in front of you reclines!"
Pros: "What I liked is that they didn't really focus on the weight I had little more weight and they didn't really make an issue for me"
Cons: "Geneva airport is so busy on the weekend I had to stay in the line for 20 minutes it's a little annoying"
Pros: "Courtesy of crew."
Pros: "Nice smooth flight, good service, comfort, food, crew, and entertainment. Crying toddlers made it hard to sleep."

Pros: "Everything is excellent"
Cons: "The plane was old and the bathroom was really dirty"
Pros: "On every flight I have ever been on, if I request it I can get a whole water bottle vs. the small cups offered...however on this flight they refused saying 'it is against the rules"?? As a result I had to bother the flight crew over 10 times to refill my small glass...a huge inconvenience for both of us. The other inconvenience (one I have not experienced in over 5-6 years) was the the headphone jacks were the old fashioned kind...meaning you could not use your own, and the buds given by the airline were very uncomfortable."
Cons: "some food was frozen when served (salad and cheese). Coffee wasn't that great either."
Cons: "Maby beter orhanisarion to printimg thicket fot baggess"
Pros: "I didn’t like anything. The plane wasn’t on time for the connecting flight so I lost my transit."

Cons: "Food is not great and the flight was delayed by an hour"
Cons: "I didn't fly, they opened counters late, closed the gate early didn't make an announcement."
Cons: "The seats are so narrow that I can't sit properly. I'm a normal sized person. and even the shorter person next to me was extremely stuck in their seat. This is unhealthy and awfully uncomfortable on an 11 hour flight."
Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Slow boarding, bad entertainment screen which should be replaced"
Pros: "They are professional all the way. They take great care of their passengers. The food was very good. They made sure we had as a comfortable trip as one can"
Pros: "Everything was good... nice and neat crew, airplane clean and comfortable, good service food was good."
Cons: "The bathrooms are way and far back... and we are not allow to use Business Class."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive. I was surprised at the amount of food and drink service. It was nice to have on such a long flight. Seats were comfortable and I was able to sleep well which is not easy for me on planes."
Pros: "Nice seat, good choice of entrainment, great food"
Cons: "That they offloaded my baggage and didn't tell me. I didn't have my stuff for 2 days."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, on time and good service"
Cons: "A bit disorganized in the beginning, but much better later on"
Cons: "At gate sign advertised their lie flat beds in business.. we were on business. No lie flat beds!"
Cons: "Haphazard boarding"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by over two HOURS. When we got to Istanbul, our connecting flight to NY could not wait 15 MINUTES and instead left. We ended up spending 18 hours in Istanbul for the next flight. 1. The personnel at the transfer desk were rude and unhelpful when we asked questions. They seemed like they could not be bothered with our problems. 2. Turkish airlines did not even bother to help with accommodations, instead giving my wife and I a small bed to sleep in vs a hotel room. The only way to get a hotel room was to leave the airport, and we could not get Visas because we were American citizens. Turkish airlines was a very bad experience. Overall this was a poor experience, and I will not fly Turkish Airlines again. I will make sure my friends and family know that this is a poor airline with poor customer service."
Cons: "Turkish airlines used to be airline offering good food, now you only get sendwich"
Cons: "They are telling me because I booked with Kayak through PriceLine or vice versa they will not give me any hotel for my 14 hours lay over."
Cons: "They changed checkined seat numbers. Air conditioning was a total failure."
Pros: "Confortable, great food, great crew as normal."
Cons: "The crew normally would get five stars for being super friendly, but they seemed a bit more like staff on other airlines this time around."
Cons: "The flight from Antalya to Istanbul was late so we almost missed our connection flight. This story is repeating with your airline at 29th July our Turkish Airlines flight from Sarajevo was late for 3hours so we were running at Ataturk Airport to catch connection flight to Istanbul even though we booked 4 hours delay in Istanbul. Regards, Edin"
Pros: "I love everything, the crew was amazing ,very helpful and always with a big smile on the face. Also I love the food, my wife and I are vegan and we requested a vegan menu in advance before the fly and the menu was delicious, fresh and healthy!! I would definitely recommend this airline to everyone!!! Way to go Turkish airline!!!!!"
Cons: "The worst attitude. Travelled with baby and gave us seats separated and no basinet. Said don't care"

Pros: "The food is imazing"
Cons: "40mins rotar"
Cons: "Service was bad. Long and uncomfortable flight!"

Cons: "Much of food, esp mac and cheese, cold."
Pros: "Flights were on time; Crew was pleasant - asked for water and was provided in a minutes; Pilots were great, they have landed smoothly"
Pros: "The food was great!"
Cons: "I booked my ticket on Kayak two months prior to the departure date. The whole reason I booked it with Turkish Airlines was because the seats were listed as "lay flat". So I paid $150 more over the other airlines for the lay flat seating on my 8 hour flight from Katmandu to Istanbul and another 10 hours on to JFK. Well the seats weren't lay flat so I feel like I got played by Kayak and didn't have a very comfortable flight."
Cons: "We ran to the gate but we're turned away and spent 3 hours getting rebooked and to a hotel for the night."
Pros: "Food and service great"
Pros: "The whole experience was great. After an excellent meal which included drinks before and an excellent wine selection the flt attendants came through and made up a bed for you. This included a cover for the seat, a blanket and a big pillow. As opposed to United where you have to stick your feet in a little cubby the Turkish plane has just an open bench which opens to provide storage and gives ample foot room. I have never slept so much on a flt. Also he bathrooms are much more spacious than others."
Cons: "Really nothing."
Cons: "time was to long between planes"
Pros: "Flight attendant cared a lot about the older lady sitting next to me, was grateful when I helped her. Food was excellent, screen size and selection of viewing material was very good. We were on time and the little comfort bag was very good, lip balm!"
Cons: "Nothing that I didn't really like, the price was good and the service excellent."
Pros: "I liked everything"
Pros: "Wonderful service and amazing food."
Cons: "Beds weren't flat on business class. My feet were hanging all the trip."
Pros: "Food, entertainment wery friendly staff"
Cons: "It was to hot in the airplane"
Cons: "We missed our flight from Istanbul to New York. The gate was changed while we were waiting at the assigned gate. No announcements were made about the gate change. We ended up stranded in Istanbul. The Turkish Airlines representatives were very rude and not helpful at all. They told me that we needed to purchase new tickets. My 14 year old and I were in Istanbul, Turkey with no way home. After hours on the phone with their customer service and many repeated phone calls and many collect phone calls to the United States, my mother was finally able to secure new plane tickets for $2000 one way for us to return to the states. We were in the airport for 24 hours before we could board a flight to make our way home. A few days after we arrived back is when the terrorist attacks occurred. I have been plagued with flashbacks of our time in the Istanbul airport. I feel that Turkish Airlines could have done a better job at trying to accommodate us in a time of desperation. I have been reluctant to contact them upon my return and a friend offered to call on my behalf and was treated in the same disrespectful manner. I would hate to think that Turkish Airlines could be representative of the people of Turkey. I can't imagine that Turkey or the citizens of this beautiful country could treat visitors in such a fashion. I appreciate your time in reading about our personal and devastating experiences during our trip that was to have been the trip of a lifetime with my son."
Pros: "The entertainment part."
Cons: "It wasn't comfortable. They never give you a gate number in your ticket and I had to go and ask for it many times.No Internet, you had to pay to get access, why should I when you pay a lot of money for your ticket. Food choices sucked because they said sorry we only have one item from the menu...really? You are making me eat something that I don't want to eat.."
Pros: "We were pleasantly surprised when we received a full box of snacks on our short flight from Zagreb to Instabul. The trip was comfortable and we enjoyed that there was a movie available overhead and they provided headphones for. Overall, it was a fine experience."
Cons: "Service was fine until our water bottle (which we thought was empty) leaked a bit in the overhead compartment and the female crewmember was incredibly rude and gave the most disgusted look when we claimed the bag that had a small leak of water (about a tablespoon). She also whispered something in Turkish to fellow crewmembers and they all laughed. It was embarrassing and unnecessary. We also were left in the bus on the tarmac for 10 minutes before we could board without any notification of what was going on."
Pros: "The food and drinks were excellent."
Cons: "Entertainment option was restricted to one movie for everyone on the flight. I wasn't interested in the movie. This flight was not equipped with the entertainment suite attached to the chair like the previous flight."

Cons: "The crew was not at all good, I had to call them so many times for one thing, not at all managed well"
Pros: "Everything was good on this flight, crew, and food."

Cons: "Movies available weren't to my taste, which isn't important anyway."

Pros: "Seat was very comfortable and lots of leg room. Food was good."
Cons: "1:20 min delay for a 35 min flight (less then 200km on the road). It is even worse if it is during the night (aircraft landed at 0:40 instead of 23:20"
Pros: "Everything was just right."
Pros: "Clean aircraft, polite crew."
Cons: "1. Check-In , Check-In , check-In .. automated much more time consuming and probably costly. 2. Delayed flight (as usual) .. 6.am D.T. should either mean 6.00 or 6.05 or 6.10 ... but not 6.30. 3. Very tight connection flights in Vienna, so a slight delay could mean missed connection. 4. Food"
Pros: "Flight was on time and we arrived on time Service was good and the crew was courteous and friendly"
Cons: "long layover before my next flight to Chicago"
Pros: "Luggage came extremely quickly"
Cons: "We upgraded to business and paid way more than the flight over and the service was much worse. Food wasn’t as good and not nearly as much."
Pros: "There was nothing to like. Horible experience will never fligh with Austrian Air again"
Cons: "The flight was long delayed, there was no explanation or any sort of pasenger notification about the delay. When I boarded the overhead luggage was full could not find space to secure my bags. The flight attendant was very rude did not assist me and made me wait. Other people traveling without luggage pushed me to pass by. I was told not very nice things. The flight was overbooked and overall horible experience."
Cons: "more than one hour delay, crew didn't arrange anything for passengers who had to catch a connecting flight in a short time. And according to other passengers, Austrian's flights are always late for at least 30-45 minutes since recent years."
Cons: "Lufthansa’s/Austrian Airlines’s idea of a ‘snack’ is a pathetic little bag of sugar and chemicals that no one should have to be offered, even if it comes for free. Hugely disappointed. Flight attendants not attentive enough."
Pros: "Staff were always courteous."
Cons: "There was no entertainment at all. No movies, no music, absolutely nothing. If i could have rated it with no stars i would have."
Cons: "First there were problems with the plane... then it got delayed... I missed my connecting flight... now it’s 2 am I have a wedding to get to in 4 hrs and I finally just arrived ."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. In-flight food service on such a short flight with choice of a sweet or salty snack was much appreciated."
Cons: "Seat backs were rock solid without use of a personal pillow."
Cons: "Missed my flight!!!!!"
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Pros: "On time departure, friendly staff"
Cons: "GET AN AGREEMENT WITH GLOBAL ENTRY"
Pros: "My flight to SJJ was rescheduled for the day later. However, Austrian ground services provided efficient service and support in finding suitable accommodation at the Vienna Airport."
Pros: "The flight was basic service to get me from one place to another. It was completely average and not quite the Austrian service I have previously known."
Cons: "See previous comments"
Pros: "You guys have. Very professional crew !!"
Cons: "The customer service In Europe wasn’t helping out at all"
Pros: "The air crew service"
Cons: "1. No option to pay for a second luggage; the company website very unclear about the luggage policy; no contact information as well as no web payment service; days before my flight, spent a lot of time and efforts to know that I could pay for a second luggage at the airport on my departure; 2. Paid $120 or so for the second luggage!!!??? After decades flying Austrian I will try switching to your competitors."
Pros: "Not much"

Pros: "they asked me if I wanted an upgrade to business class - nice"
Cons: "they left all the lights on in the plane - difficult to sleep at night. Never had this happen before. Another lady from N.J., originally from SLovakia and going to Kosice for a visit complained about the same thing. SHe was worn out and so am I."
Pros: "Snacks in board included in the price. Super nice crew team. Unlike British airways where prices are higher, on longer flights there is no free refreshments and crew staff were unpleasant."
Cons: "Very small and old plane. Uncomfortable seats. Hand luggage bigger than small backpack not permitted on the board."
Cons: "We left from Vienna , two hours late. This kind of problem supposed to be fix it , before.i like to fly with Austrian Airlines, isn't the first time, but now for me , to so long was a big problem"

Pros: "They had a yummy snack. And fresh veggies. With great coffee. And the host told us abou the history of a Vienna dessert."
Pros: "My waffle and coffee"
Cons: "Very small seats with hardly any legroom. Flight delayed 2 hours. Nasty attendant told me my bag was too big for overhead compartment. It wasn't."
Cons: "Please change food, enough of pasta every time."
Cons: "very tight connection in VIE after a small late departure from LHR but we make the connection."
Pros: "So I had to fly to Munich, and rather than flying direct on terrible United, I took a connecting flight via Vienna. Flight was full yet still departed on time and even arrived early. The seat was comfortable and flight went very smoothly. Food served on board was perfectly edible. Disembarking also went without problems. The flight staff even accommodated the requests of a particularly nasty Russian family seated behind me even though they were total jerks. I was very impressed with their professionalism."
Cons: "Nothing. I will make a point of trying to fly via Vienna in the future. Airport is very pleasant and well run."
Pros: "The service was good, everyone from the staff extremely friendly and overall the flight was very quick."
Pros: "Food, entertainment."
Cons: "Aircraft was older 777 and lavatories weren't very clean. Upon landing in Vienna, my mobility walker (tagged to be brought up to me at jetway) was sent to my connecting flight to Sophia. The flight crew refused to intercept it and have it brought up to me at the aircraft. To make matters much, much worse, the flight crew eventually gave up and left, leaving me LOCKED inside the jetway for over 30 minutes after calling for a wheelchair. The replentishment crew refused to let me out of the locked jetway. Only after the wheelchair arrived was I let out of the locked jetway. I was taken to the Austrian Airlines service center where I lodged a formal complaint. Supervisor/Rene refused to upgrade my seat in any fashion to compensate for my distress. He did, however, arrange for me to given access to the VIP lounge and then taken to my VIE-SOF gate. Had I had a shorter layover, I would have missed my connecting flight."
Pros: "It was fast and comfortable"
Pros: "Made everything easy, stayed on time, clean."
Pros: "It was such a short flight, no comment for this leg."
Cons: "No organized boarding system, the entire plane was told to get in line at the gate with the exception of business/first class and elderly or people traveling with children."

Pros: "Crew is good as always."
Cons: "Uncertinty at boarding.Changing the time of take off several times and very slow boarding.Rough landing."
Pros: "Quick boarding, friendly staff"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
There were no entertainment from Germany to Delhi flight. Very limited option for previous flight. Ear piece was loose and kept coming off. Seats were comparatively smaller. Food could have been tastier. Missed salt and pepper on the side. Yogurt can be added to the meal.
What made the trip terrible, is the fact that we were delayed in Chicago that caused us to miss our flight from Frankfurt to Nuremberg. we ended at the airport for an extra 8-9 hours. The only thing Lufthansa did, was gave us a 15 euro voucher for food. That is an insult, plus two people for almost 9 hour? 15 euro does not cover anything for two people for two meals.
If my transfer flight wasn’t cancelled and my luggage wasn’t sent to Milan
They canceled the flight we booked several weeks ago and Lufthansa rebooked us on a very bad connection through Frankfort but never told us…the helpful United people at the airport figured out what had happened and then rebooked us on a direct United flight, like our original booking, only overnight instead of daytime. Why did Lufthansa not mention that they had rebooked us, and why did they add a stopover needlessly?
The flight attendants were quite abrupt with answers to legitimate questions. The flight was okay, i.e., the flight was smooth,
Cons: "Food was not fully prepared. potatoes were hard."
Pros: "Seats were good."
Cons: "Frankfurt airport was bad. Too hot and poor organization. There was no place to sit and we were not allowed to go to the gate where sitting place was available."
Pros: "Great staff and food"
Pros: "Service on the DFW-->FRA leg was phenomenal (ratio of attendants to fliers). Food was delicious and seats very comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding process and organization could have been a bit better in communicating access and groups. Not super critical, but the goal in in process is to be as efficient as possible."
Pros: "Lufthansa is a friendly airline but was unable to help with our problem because I had booked through Kayak."
Cons: "When I presented my passport at the counter to receive my boarding pass, I was told my passport needed to be over 3 months before expiration. It expires January 14, 2019. It is not written on the passport, nor mentioned during booking. I’ve been to Latvia four times previously and never heard this requirement. I cancelled the flight with Lufthansa who said I must call Kayak who gave me another number to call and that number then sent an email that said there was a $350 rebooking fee for each ticket, IF they decided I was eligible for rebooking. Yes, we got a great rate, but looks like wasted $ now. I will book directly with the airline in the future to ensure the ability to rebook."
Pros: "Red wine was OK, passed on the free sandwich as last time it didn’t agree with me"
Cons: "Flight was over an hour late and no compensation from the airlines."
Cons: "Great plane & serive & big bathrooms"
Cons: "I get Emergency to be sick and be in hospital and the request company for exchange my fly back from Slovakia back to my country USA and they declined my refund or exchange tickets even if I have doctors statement being in the hospital they’re rude and mean and decline make any changes for me"
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "So there was a 2 hours delay in Dallas which resulted in 11 hours delay in Frankfurt .. this trip was horrible how did they dare do that to the passengers.. they should have gotten us a place to rest but we were left on the chairs in the airport.. will never fly Lufthansa anymore"
Pros: "We left DFW in extremely hot weather. The ground crew managed the boarding to keep everyone out of the hot tunnel entry as long as possible. Even through there was a delay in boarding already, the crew kept us well informed. The cabin crew was very pleasant and accommodating. Smooth flight and still made it to our connecting flight on time."
Cons: "Leg room in coach is really cramped but that is all airlines unfortunately."
Pros: "We upgraded to economy premium which was fantastic. With the exception of seats that lie down all the way, you feel like you are in business class."
Pros: "The flight crew was amazing and the overall experience was great."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "comfort was awful. seats in the cattle section are awfully uncomfortable and space is at premium. food was bad. the cleanliness of the bathrooms leaves a lot to the desire. the Frankfurt airport is just plain awful. overall, I would not recommend Lufthansa, it was just that I did not have a choice."
Pros: "Everything. Lufthansa is still the best."
Pros: "Boarding was late. Pilot said he would makeup the time, but he didn’t. Many passengers were late for their connecting flights.The Airbus was smooth and relatively quiet. Not much room for a 6 foot male. Crew was excellent. The food was just okay. Had to take a shuttle to and from the terminal in Frankfort, which added to the delays. Late boarding from Frankfurt to Stuttgart. Had to wait for the shuttle. Flight was fine."
Pros: "Very nice staff. Excellent entertainment options and food!"
Cons: "Arm room was a bit cramped."

I had no problem going through security with that amount of spray deodorant flying from IAW, Dulles. DFW airport security says the limit is no more than 3.4 ounces. So they kept my harmless deodorant. I need TSA to get on the same sheet of music worldwide. People don't have time or money to waste having to deal with different TSA standards everywhere they go."

Cons: "I understand it was a short flight, but don’t force me to buy either a movie or TV show. At least give me some free options."

Pros: "Dallas flight was 1 hour delayed, United landed in terminal C (C115) in Newark, flight to Hartford departed in terminal A (A26). People were running to catch the Newark to Hartford gate on the other side of the airport. I am surprise United hasn't beeen sued for this lack of consideration to their customers. Luckily I was not in a wheelchair to run across to the other side of the airport due to United delay. I wonder how a United employee would feel if ithis happened to them and their children or disabled parents. Flying is already stressful enough, experiencing a flight delay and forcing people to run like cattles in an airport only pushes people to drive rather then fly."
Cons: "Try placing inbound and departure United planes in the same terminal instead on on the other side of an airport. If you delay a flight, the departure flight should be delayed too to allow customers a fair chance to get home. Not everyone can run like Husain Bolt in an airport. Consider your future customers."

Pros: "Everyone was very friendly"
Cons: "Pay for ticket and couldn't get a seat assignment. Had to go to the kiosk before my flight and try to get a seat. It processed for 5 minutes while I waited thinking it was stuck. Finally it told me there were no seats available unless I wanted to pay for upgrade. Gee I thought a seat came with the price of a ticket. Then there was no shoulder room in the seating and I am an average sized person. There was leg room because it was an exit row. Then they tried to sell me a round-trip ticket that was more costly than buying individual tickets. What a scam."
Pros: "Not one thing."
Cons: "I chose to fly UA back from a trip to Fort Worth because your price was cheaper than the airline I normally use. Boy do I know why! You have the rudest staff I have ever encountered. My day started out at 6:30am with one of your staff members rudely telling me I had to check my bag, which met all of the dimension requirements you put in place, because two notches on the back side of the carry on did not allow it to completely slide into the display. This women waited until you were halfway through the security line to call you back and make you measure the suitcase. So then you had to walk back through a long line and find yourself even FURTHER back in the line to get through security. She was so unprofessional- not compassionate, unpleasant attitude, and was all about making sure as many people as possible had to pay the extra $25 for a checked bag. The person I flew with is a military wife and you would not honor the free checked bag because her husband was not on the trip and this policy was not included anywhere on her flight documents. Again, the "customer service" reps were rude to her about this and she had to pay the $25 to check her bag. You do not believe in offering quality customer service or ensuring that we have a pleasant experience, you want our money and look to us as an opportunity to make a dollar. Never again!!!"
Cons: "My son ( a minor) was held over in Denver airport for over 12 hours because of delays and cancellations. Not once did your United crew or service workers offer him a meal voucher. This is absolutely wrong. This was my son's first flight alone and he also could not find any venders open to buy food. I will NEVER fly United again and will tell all friends and relatives about your inconsideration to minor passengers who are too shy to ask for help.!"
Cons: "EXTREME LACK OF LEG ROOM"
Cons: "Need more leg room."
Pros: "Pilot was wonderful and did a fabulous job landing in the windy conditions."
Cons: "The flight attendant was dismissive and rude. The united terminal at DFW was terrible. Dirty, old and just plain disgusting. Craft was a bit run down and dirty as well"
