Cons: "14 hours on a a plane is a long time, no matter what :/ but it is amazing to be able to fly across the world in a day! The meal schedule was weird, but after we figured it out, it was fine, and the food was pretty good too."

Pros: "The plane was new enough and clean, the food was modest but good, snacks were generous and tasty, but what sets ANA apart is the attentiveness, courtesy, and thoughtfulness of the crew. I used to fly Singapore Airlines often and felt this way about them, but in recent years I’ve noticed a fall off in service. ANA has maintained or even raised their standards of service."

Cons: "Missed my flight over a misscommunication on getting to the airport. Thete was not sufficient time to arrive more than an hour early due to the fact Gimpo airport opens at 6am and the flight was at 7:45. When I arrived I was not allowed to check in or board and no one wanted to help me find out what to do. They suggested I call my ticketing agent. Thankfully they were helpful but they mentioned the ANA SHOULD have helped me find the next available flight but the representative kept repeating it was not her job. Finally she looked and said there were no available flights and tried to push me to buy another ticket through another company. My ticketing agent helped after she heard what happened and rebooked my flight for the next day. Hopefully everything goes smoothly but ANA staff at Gimpo were a bit of a nightmare to deal with"

Cons: "It said that the plane was capable of WiFi, but the flight didn't have it, probably just because the route is too short."

Cons: "i asked a crew for a drink.. and they refused."

Pros: "Crew great as always. Bulkhead seating very good for economy class.Has improved."

Pros: "Flight crew were amazing! Very hospitable and attentive."
Cons: "WiFi was not very good. Connection was very slow and they charge $20 per 100 MB used (instead of one flat fee)."

Pros: "n/a"
Cons: "The captain failed to update the passengers and crew of significant change in flight path and delay. The flight flew off course for almost 30 minutes, while the flight attendants required everyone to remain seated due to supposed turbulence. We felt no turbulence for almost 25 mins. No update was given to passengers while we flew far off course. I motioned to the flight attendant, who was seated due to turbulence warning, to ask why we were off-course, but she could not get up. Many passengers were pointing to the flight path animation, to point out that we were flying straight north, instead of southeast. The flight attendant then called the captain for an update, and then the captain finally made an announcement about weather delays around shanghai."

Pros: "Yes overall probably the best flight to Chennai from DC"

Pros: "Crew was very friendly"

Pros: "Justfly stoled my money as i booked for seat and paid 30$ And the seat didnt booked I want my money to be returned"

Cons: "I don't understand how this company has a high rating in service. We missed our connection because the plane was delayed and they treated us poorly. How can you have a complimentary lounge for people missing their flight but not allow people in. I guess because we were only economy. When asked could we pay for an upgrade to business class, the attendant responded with "oh, its expensive" I didn't ask how much, I asked if we could. I never felt so insulted. The food was terrible. By the time they got to us, our food was cold and they ran out of the menu item we wanted. I have no intention of flying Qatar again. I will stick with Emirates"

Pros: "The flight from Doha to Beirut was not fully booked, we could move easily."

Overall the food was okay, we had 2 small pieces of beef in one meal, the two salads has no taste and the sandwich was too salty. A passenger who sat next to my husband snored all the time and leaned a bit over my husband as he was heavy."

Pros: "Awesome experience provided by inflight crew, who attended to all your needs for this long for flight. Made us feel really at home!"

Pros: "Fantastic flight...Qatar’s QSuites are fantastic, very comfortable, Amazon my service from the crew, fantastic entertainment options, and with the privacy of the suite ...very close to first class...in fact it is better than the first products (from a seat perspective) of many other airlines such as United, Delta, Virgin, BA, etc."

Pros: "Onboard crew pleasant and service efficient as always. Seats more comfortable than other airlines but aisles so narrow EVERYONE bumped me going by for 15 hours."
Cons: "Ground crews remain the downfall of this airline. Long line in Doha to re-clear security on international connection FROM USA! Fastidiously weighing and forcing mutiple repacks of carry-on bags even though well under total limit of checked & carry. (Doha agent told me dfferent rules appied for carrry on 2nd plane even though I asked specifically frm original agent who checked me thru to final dest--insisted I check main carry on even though there turned out to be plenty of overhead room on board). Poor coordination of checkin lines, security lanes, and flow of people -- all fixable with a little forethought, engineering, and better utilization of circulation space -- and much clearer communication!"

Cons: "The seats were cramped"

Pros: "I love this app , it's awesome it's save my money and time"

Pros: "The crew was fantastic!! They saved this rating."
Cons: "Old plane. No power outlet, no wifi, entertainment system was glitchy... if it was not for the crew, this would have been the poorest u could get.

Cons: "1. The economy seats were extremely uncomfortable and tight, unlike other Int’l flights we have been on, ie, Virgin and British Airlines 2.Food was the worst we have ever had on an Int’l Flt. 3. Main meal selection ran out. Staff said there was nothing they could fo. 4. Our suitcase arrived really beat up. It looked like it was dragged along the tarmac. There were several large rips. To make it worse, this was the first trip we have used the suitcase."

Pros: "The crew was very nice and very good. They served the evening meal very promptly. They could have made another trash run prior to everyone trying to sleep for the night flight."

Pros: "Good entertainment variety. Food was good, including snacks. Generous with drinks as well. Crew was polite and friendly."
Cons: "Letting us know about the delay prior to boarding could have allowed us to use our time better. Instead we sat at the gate and in the plane. Seats (economy) a bit closer to each other relative to other planes and the armrest does not fully go up which does not allow us to use space as much as possible."

Cons: "It wasn't Swiss//"

Pros: "It takes two minutes to get to a live operator when you call. Simply amazing."
Cons: "The flight from Nairobi to Zurich starts in Nairobi, flies an hour south to Dar es Salaam, you then sit on the tarmac for an hour, then you fly north for an hour until you get back to the starting point. I would think they would save money if they flew an empty plane down to Dar es Salaam, picked up those passengers and then flew back to Nairobi. No way should an 8.5 hour flight take over 11.5 hours. Plus my screen didn't work for one of the flights, nearly 12 hours without entertainment was BS. No real variety in their meals either. The first leg had a main meal of beef and potatoes as the meat option, same option for the second leg."

Pros: "Excellent flight staff and better than average airplane food."
Cons: "If one is over child height and the uncaring person in front of you slams their seat into full recline, one will be miserable on steroids. Swiss Air will not correct the small free space capacity (both pitch and width) most assuredly. Thus, I now fully appreciate why fellow travelers embrace airplane knee protectors. "Don't leave home without them," especially on Swiss Air (emphasis added) !"

Cons: "excellent food and hospitality"

Pros: "The entertainment system"
Cons: "Direct answer is "nothing"; however, it should be noted that this not a Swiss Air flight. It was a code share on a United Airlines flight."

Cons: "The flight from Washington DC to Istanbul was very comfortable but the flight from Istanbul to Lahore was very uncomfortable. It was not worth the money. Turkish air line should use better And newer airplanes between Istanbul and Lahore"

Pros: "Every thing"

Pros: "Service was great, very polite crew. The food was so far the best comparing with other airlines I flew with. Planes were clean."
Cons: "The flight arrived with delay in Istanbul. The connecting flight was delayed as well. Hopefully I won’t experience that on the way back. One of the passengers said that flights are always delayed when arriving to Istanbul waiting for gates."

Pros: "Easy booking on Kayak! Good service overall."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, it was really hot! Not enough air conditioners."

Cons: "Not enough leg room for anyone over 6ft tall"

Cons: "Very small space"

Pros: "Service is good as well as food."
Cons: "The space. The transatlantic leg was awful because the space was really limited. From IST to my final destination the leg room increased"

Pros: "Friendly airline and super organized and efficient from start to finish. By far the best airline our group has flown with!"

Cons: "Seats were horrible - I've never been so uncomfortable on an international flight. Also, seat was broken and I couldn't push it back for sleeping. Flight attendant tried to help be but seat was broken"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Service was exceelent and all crew staff were professional and friendly and courteous."

Cons: "We end up spending almost 1,200 use extra to reach Washington and return to Yaounde."

Pros: "The entertainment and food choices are great, and staff is kind and ready to help."
Cons: "The line to check in & get our boarding passes was ridiculously long -- it took us about an hour of just waiting in line before even getting to security."

Cons: "I booked my flight with Turkish Airlines for June 28th at 11:05 pm. A few hours before my flight, there were bombings in the airport in Istanbul, which was where I was flying into. I tried for hours to contact Turkish Airlines and their phone was disconnected. I could not reach anyone to try to re-schedule a new flight or to ask if the flight was going to be re-directed. I received no information and ended up having to book a new flight for the next day. After my flight had already left Turkish Airlines posted on their website an alert. I am shocked that it took so long to post any information and I am very upset that I was unable to reach customer service. I will NOT be choosing this airline to fly on again."

Movie selections were freat ad well."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "The planes were clean and staff really helpful. The actual flights were great."
Cons: "At Istanbul the staff in the airport were confused about where the gate was and we missed our flight and then we had to purchase new tickets. And they did not honor our original tickets. That was almost 900 dollars gone because they would not honor our tickets. I am hoping for a refund."

Pros: "Had a one hour delay without justification,but ended up landing in Douala first before Yaounde. Arrived at 4:30 am instead of 12:005am. Lost my bag up till now not seen."
Cons: "The crew, was rude to passengers with kids"

Pros: "The attendants were courteous and proficient. Even when they were being elbowed as they walked past, smiling and friendly. I will try to fly Turkish again."

Pros: "Top of the line service!!"

Cons: "Seating was terrible. My seat was broken."

Pros: "Once on board, the service is very good!"
Cons: "Very long lines and long waiting time to check in."

Pros: "Everything was very good"

Pros: "The service by the flight attendants was very good starting from the welcome to the end in spite of the fact that it was quite late night flight. Also by fortunate luck I had the chance to sleep as the next three seats to me were all empty in the middle block, which made the whole trip less exhaustive."
Cons: "If the seats next to me weren't empty and I couldn't lay down across all of them it would have been a difficult flight as the economy seats are not even close with economy comfort levels of other international airlines like Turkish Airlines especially the seat pitch size. Entertainment choices could be improved by more recent movies. There were very few selection."

Pros: "The in flight crew was great"
Cons: "I arrived a bit late to the airport. 5:15pm for a 6:05p for an international flight. I realize It is very late. I was delayed by donald trump protestors blocking the highway (not your fault). Dulles was a ghost town ( abnormally slow). All I had was carry-on. They said they closed the flight. They quoted me at $1800 for a one way ticket directly from Lufthansa. The original round trip was $900. I declined, sat down for 15 min booked another Lufthansa flight online for $800, checked in and was through security by 5:50. Just in time for my original flights last call. I could have made it easily. Boooo Lufthansa booo."

Pros: "The crew was super friendly and caring. The food was great. Very enjoyable trip!!"

Pros: "The cabin crew was excellent all around, really made the experience a pleasure. Also very helpful when I couldn't locate my wallet as I was preparing to deplane, both in terms of helping me look and explaining what I could do if it didn't turn up (eventually it did, before I disembarked)."
Cons: "The seats, while relatively comfortable on their own, were really jammed in; it felt cramped even as a smaller adult. And the boarding process in Washington seemed to take a very long time."

Cons: "Seats on airplane from Frankfort to Cairo"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The food, kids friendly"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Crew very rude unlikely Lufthansa"

Pros: "Comfortable"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "On time all the time"
Cons: "Food getting worse year after year."

Pros: "they were on-time and we got from IAD to FRA in one piece."
Cons: "you had to pay $35 ahead of time just to select your seats...they only allow 1 checked bag, half the flight was empty in eco plus but they still wanted you to pay to "upgrade", integration with UAL is cumbersome and difficult as you cant manage both legs of a UAL/LH flight from one carrier. Overall mediocre but hey - Cheap fares, you get what you pay for."

Cons: "Lost my luggage ., not happy"

Cons: "bad weather, not your fault"

Pros: "All round excellent services. Food is good, but I wish but I wished More chooses or selection."

Cons: "A man sitting behind me probably took off his shoes and it was just terrible to smell his stinky feet..."

Pros: "Excellent service, on time arrival, a great experience! Everything was easy with Lufthansa, which soothed my jitters and helped me relax (as much as is possible!)"

Cons: "We were traveling 2 adults with 2 and 6 year olds. We were all seated on different rows and seats. We tried to fix it at the gate and we were given 2 seats next to each other and 2 behind each other...please train your staff to seat families together!!!"

Pros: "Fast boarding. Smooth flight. Good entertainment. Very pleasant."
Cons: "Flight attendant complained about a passanger right in fron of her in a different language. I understand both languages. Completely unprofessional."

Pros: "Smooth flight"

Cons: "24 hr delay. I was supposed to fly Lufthansa and had to deal with idiots from United from Jacksonville to IAD."

Pros: "The check in process was fast and pleasant. Boarding was fast and organized. Food and drinks were good."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable for such a long flight. Simply terrible."

Pros: "excellent dinner selection movies and on screen entertainment were great"
Cons: "2 hour wait on tarmac in Dulles for weather no one in the crew could tell us where our connecting gait was or whether we would have enough time to make it"

Pros: "Everything was amazing Very pleased!"
Cons: "Good choice entertainment but system is slow to respond and crashed on a few occasions"

Pros: "Captain was personable and made the flight more enjoyable"
Cons: "Length, which could not be helped"

Pros: "Crew carried out their jobs very professionally Entertainment selection was good"
Cons: "Lack of personal seating space"

Pros: "Lufthansa always does an excellent job."

Pros: "Timely departure."
Cons: "Fruit and a muffin is not enough for breakfast."

Cons: "No vegan food"

Pros: "Food was actually pretty good, and was plentiful. Comfortable seating."
Cons: "I don't think my tv worked."

Pros: "The flight was delayed two hours. I flew them 10 years ago and thought their seervice rivaled the Asian airlines. Now their service and seat comfort is near the cellar dwellars. The premium coach seat I paid extra for was the narrowest coach seat I have ever had the misfortune to sit in. I am a small man. 5'*8" 165lbs. The normal sized man next to me and I had to sit with our elbows pinned to our ribs. Eight hours of hell. I also had a totally irritating woman from syria behind me. She pushed and banged on my seat back the entire 8 hours. She had to have her loud mouth yapping most of the flight. That was the worse experience I have had flying. Also the attendents didnt care about me. I had to ask for tea. Had to ask three times as they were waalking off"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours. The seat was tiny , cramped and uncomfortable. I travel a lot. This is the first negative review I have written in 55 years of flying."

Cons: "flight was late, check-in people were mean and angry to everyone, instead of serving the food straight away since the overnight flight was delaed and then quickly turning the lights off, they waited until 3 hours in to serve food, which meant they didnt turn the lights off until well into the night and only gave us a couple hours to sleep. there were no new movies on board except for batman vs. superman. food tasted weird even for airplane standards. pretty bad overall. i've had better experience with virgin, united, or air france."

Cons: "delay on boarding time-problems with the aircraft"

Pros: "On time!!!!"

Cons: "We were in economy class. It looked like the seats my wife and I were in were smaller than the surrounding seats. The seat I was assigned was also more narrow than the one my wife was assigned. I am tall, and could not move my legs for the trip. Also, the seat controls were on the inside is the seat. I could not move at all without turning on the overhead light or screen."

Pros: "I fly regularly between Germany and USA. Would rate this flight as the second best flight in recent years. Small details can make a difference."
Cons: "The breakfast that was served was not great. Blueberry muffin super sweet and canola bar with raisins.none odds which i would ever pick if I had any choice."

Cons: "It was a transatlantic flight in coach. There is no way to make that a pleasant experience. Entertainment system was down. Ran out of one dinner option."

Pros: "The crew was very attentive. I did not want to eat the food and the crew offered me fruit. Great A/V options."

Pros: "Onboard real meal and multi-lingual crew very impressive"

Pros: "Excellent flight, crew, food and service."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly and attentive. The flight was very smooth."
Cons: "My seat back was not easy to keep in the reclining position."

Pros: "great and pleasant service, caring and helpful, frequently offered beverages, delicious vegan option, great movies selection, not much turbulence, overall like Lufthansa the best: reliable, on time,"

Pros: "Best crew ever. By far most friendly staff and excellent service."
Cons: "Nothing that I know"

Cons: "This was a united flight. The personal was not helpful, only in helping me communicate with the airport in Rome to change my flight. I had to pay 97 euros for this change. I am upset and think it is not fair that I need to pay for a problem united had with their flight. I also think star Allience failed as they were not able to resolve the problem with their partner airlines."

Pros: "When we fly Trans Atlantic, we always hope it will be with lufthansa! Sometimes they use united as a carrier and it us never as good as lufthansa!"

Pros: "Efficient, early check in and seat selection was simple and done from home. Got to the airport early which is unusual for me but everything went smoothly and was relatively low stress."

Pros: "Late departure, full flight but good overall."

Pros: "Check in was good. Everything was orderly and on time."
Cons: "Fairly cramped for an international flight."

Pros: "flight attendants were very nice, helpful, and accountable. I wish every flight had them on their crew."

Pros: "Great service, food, crew."
Cons: "Seats too small, very uncomfortable."

Pros: "We purchase extra leg room seats which turned out not to be available. The crew understood our frustration and upgraded us to premium economy. Many thanks!"
