Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Friendly staff, new aircraft, great food"
Cons: "Just some help with hand luggage"
Cons: "The flight crew and gate crew were the rudest I have seen in my entire life. They acted as if they were too good to acknowledge passengers and ignored the flight attendant light and other efforts to get their attention to ask a question."
Pros: "Seats comfortable. Entertainment was extensive. Food was good!"
Cons: "Landing was rough!"
Cons: "Stuff not helpful, rude and not helping at all despite us being with a baby"
Pros: "All good."
Cons: "Actually, pretty all right, so no recommendations."
Pros: "The crew was on point and did there jobs well."
Cons: "The food was old fashioned and stuck in the 1960s. Having an option of Beef brisket or Salmon or two polarizing choices. I opted for the brisket and it was decent but not actually worth finishing. It was too fatty and strange tasting. Boarding in Sydney needs much improved screens and communication."
Pros: "Crew was super nice and accommodating. Entertainment was the best selection I’ve ever seen."
Cons: "It was impressive. Can’t yhink of anything."
Pros: "The service, food , amenities were all A +++"
Cons: "2 hour delay sitting in Bangkok airport due to sick passengers and their luggage getting off"
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Comfortable."
Pros: "Crew were more friendly from Dubai to Sydney than on other Emirates flights."
Cons: "Screaming kids for whole 14 hours!"
Cons: "Only one thing thaar I'd suggest as an improvements would be to provide water on a mores frequently basis"
Pros: "Information from the captain"
Cons: "Serving alcohol to someone who had consumed a lot, difficult for the crew to know though."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "The flight certainly lived up to its reputation as being one of the nicest airlines to fly, even in being in economy. Great service, great food, great on board entertainment."
Cons: "There was an incident prior to take off where a passenger in first class had to be removed from the plane. Though it’s certainly not the airlines fault that there was an issue with a passenger, they should’ve been a lot more transparent and gave us a lot more information on what exactly was going on other then “we need to go back to a special area to get this passenger off.” Couple that with the security checks to “make sure there is nothing on the plane that shouldn’t be” and very little explanation of what actually occurred, it made for a very stressful flight. Not knowing if this passenger had made any kind of threat against the plane, or safety of other passengers... etc, it was very hard to feel safe for the remainder of my trip being left in the dark as the incident occurred in first class."
Pros: "The flight was incredibly comfortable, and Emirates reputation is well warranted. Service was impeccable and food was great. Seats were great, especially in business."
Cons: "Overall business class was great, however I didn’t like the placement of the remote at my left shoulder. I hit rabdom buttons a few times and it changed the channels and I would have to re-search for the movie I was watching. Everything else was absolutely perfect."
Pros: "Ease of checkin"
Cons: "Delayed take off Delayed baggage retrieval’s"
Pros: "Attention to detail Great Entertainment Excellent food Pilot updates on timing"
Cons: "Movie channels and music could be easier to use"
Pros: "This was operated by Qantas. Nice movie/music setup. Crew friendly"
Cons: "Food plentiful but meat was tough and pretty instututional in taste. Couldn’t eat but half of any meal"
Pros: "Best airline so far for economy long haul flight, was emerites flight"
Cons: "No Arabs on board but everything in Arabic, no real issues. Would have been hard for my Thai girl to navigate on her own"
Cons: "The boarding gate space was quite small and there was no separate queue for business. So you literally had to push through people who were already in the queue to board as a business class. There was no space to go around."
Cons: "They didn’t have enough landing cards in English, the aircraft temperature inside was too cold, the staff didn’t close the curtains to the galley area and made noise and light while everyone is trying to sleep, our baggage came out last despite having priority tags and the boarding process from the lounge in Dubai with lifts was very combersome"
Pros: "Service is phenomenal, comfort of the seats and in flight entertainment was fab."
Cons: "Food was mediocre, but then again haven't ever had a wonderful meal on an aeroplane before!"
Pros: "Pretty uniforms and good service: Polite, gentle, helpful"

Pros: "I was impressed by the professionalism!"

Pros: "The entertainment unit worked all good. The food was great."
Cons: "Flight got delayed. I can't say crews weren't kind but I was on another airline with much much kinder crews."
Pros: "The plane. The thoughtfulness of the crew. My seat's location. I was lucky to be in the front center! The flight information display. Flying at night across the Tasman Sea it was as though we were stationary (apart from a little vibration as we crossed the Southern Alps). Besides, the Air Bus is so quiet (comparatively). Oh yes. One other thing: the fare."
Cons: "We are vegetarians (not vegan). I wasn't keen on the chicken/fish option. But I didn't complain."
Cons: "The boarding process could be more organized and more smoothly."

Pros: "So comfy... Great service. Wished the flight was longer b"
Pros: "Emirates is always excellent however the crew were not very engaging"
Pros: "La amabilidad de la tripulación, que sí el menú es completamente vegetariano. No como otras aerolíneas que te ponen manteca, leche para el café..."
Cons: "Todas las veces me cae muy, pero muy mal. Cuando llegó el momento del té o café, me dieron sal en vez de edulcorante. Demasiado condimento. No es comida para un vuelo, es difícil de digerir. Hasta produce síntomas de indigestión."
Cons: "We fid not enjoy the close proximity of several screaming children who insisted in screaming at all hoyrs, making sleep impossible. What was concerning was the reluctance of the staff to intervene. Most disappointing as we did not have any sleep at all overnight."

Pros: "The service for my granddaughters was phenomenal."

Cons: "Crew didn't come through the cabin enough to offer water and drinks."

Cons: "I've flown to Korea many times and this was the most turbulence I've ever had. The choice of moves wasn't good."

Pros: "Great service. Good food. Excellent entertainment options. Coach had widest seats I've ever sat in. Asiana is always my first choice for China-LAX."
Cons: "There was loads of turbulence, but it was handled well. And frankly, an airline can't control air conditions. So I have no real bad things to say about this flight."

Pros: "charming efficient staff"

Cons: "Needs more cushion on the seats."

Cons: "falling in line just to get coffee. They should have gone around and served it instead."

Cons: "Food I like to have was run out so I had to eat whatever available."
Cons: "In compare with PVG - ICN section, the ICN - LAX section meal food was poorly prepared."

Pros: "Crew was very nice..did all they could do"
Cons: "Food terrible..seats not comfortable..few entertainment choices"
Cons: "For whatever reason they had me go to the end of the line even though my ticket was for business class. I wasn’t upset, byt just a little confused. Other than that everyone else was pretty polite."
Pros: "Food was excellent at least some of the time. And pretty good the other times. It was also nice to get slippers/"
Cons: "film selection not good enough and not new enough"
Cons: "Limited choices for the movies."
Pros: "I liked everything about the airlines, the flight attendants are so respectful and kind. They go out of their way to help the packager get comfortable and settle in there seat before and after take off. I have been a member with Asian Airlines for 6 years and won't change airlines for nothing even if I have to pay a little extra for great service."

Pros: "The flight attendants are very quick in attending our needs. The airplane is spacious and clean."
Pros: "It's a short and well run flight"
Pros: "i like the cabin crew"
Cons: "I didnt like the that there is less leg space in the flight"
Pros: "The plane crew was awesome"
Cons: "But when I did my check in it took so long because neither of the asiana staff knew the condition or policy of my quantas itinerary. I don't know if it was the system but they should have managed better the situation. At last they took care of it but lost so much time. Besides everyone got nervous and I felt a little uncomfortable."
Pros: "Crew was greatest part of this flight, as they were very friendly and attentive. The bread was warm and tasty."
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours late departing; plane was old and did not have lie flat seats in BIZ; luggage was damp when it arrived; food was very bland tasting; entertainment system was not very clear and was difficult to control."
Pros: "For the duration of 5.5hours, 1 main meal and 1 snack were served. Prompt drinks and meal service"
Cons: "No personal inflight entertainment. Only a few screens from the ceiling, with poor viewing angles."
Cons: "Flight was again delayed going to and coming from Manila.. Time allotted for transfers from LA to Seoul and Seoul to Manila of 1+ hr. is too short. Security is very strict which is good but you just arrived from one airline and transferring to another airline in 1 hr."
Pros: "Super well trained staff. Even though my wife and I sat in economy coach, we still felt very warmly received and respected. The food was excellent."
Cons: "The seats need improved cushioning. They were insanely firm. Perhaps they did not consider the comparatively expansive American butt when they were first designed."
Pros: "I particularly liked the seamlessness of the experience - from the downtown checkin and getting a boarding pass at Seoul station, taking the AREX, the efficiency and competence of the front line personnel, etc. I will recommend Asiana and I would consider taking them long distance except that I am a goldcard frequent flier with American/British/Cathay for many years now. Chicago talks about seamlessness in its airport experience but its train-to-the-plane is the chronic weak link."
Cons: "Nothing - I'd tell you if there was. I didn't bother with entertainment for a two-hour flight and I was already well into a really eloquent novel (I'll Be Right There) by Kyung-Sook Shin; check it out"
Pros: "The configuration of two seats on the sides convenient when flying with a partner."
Cons: "Service effecient but lack warmth. Food choice limited, no vegeterian option ."
Pros: "The staff was nice and accommodating which is a big plus and the food was pretty good too."
Pros: "first meal was quite good. ca in temp was good"
Cons: "second meal not so good. Film choices not so intersting."
Pros: "Very helpful and experienced crew, really good service! Thank you!"
Cons: "Staff does not understand regulation"
Pros: "Place was clean; crew was nice and attentive"
Cons: "Seats are small and uncomfortable for long haul flights"
Cons: "Food, entertainment program, pillows and blankets would have been nice,"
Pros: "Crew super!! Entertainment very good"
Cons: "Plane excellent condition and super clean. Take off and landing on time"
Pros: "Amazing crew and service."
Cons: "Seat space extremely low for tall person."
Pros: "A very quick flight, but the crew was quite friendly!"
Cons: "I would have liked for there to have been a gluten-free snack available."
Pros: "Not and horrible waited for 10hour before we board the last journey"
Cons: "Is horrible will not use kayak again we want to change the flight we were told not changeable"
Pros: "Friendly staff. Free drink and snack. Comfy seats and very easy boarding process"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Didn't have the vegetarian meal I ordered"
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "Navigating very long distance between terminals. Terminal changes"
Pros: "Everything. The staff were absolutely lovely, the brand new fit out of the 777 is excellent and modern, the entertainment was great as was the food. Overrall really impressed."
Pros: "Plenty of room in both the cabin and the bathroom- more than we have ever experienced. Food was very good. Crew was outstanding"
Cons: "Boarding is chaotic for economy, with everyone mobbing around the entrance. Having people board in subsets, beyond just 1st class and people needing assistance would be helpful. It makes the entire airport gate areas hard to maneuver around for other people as each plane loads, and it stresses out the group waiting to get on the plane."
Pros: "Great crew and on time."
Cons: "Seating a bit cramped"
Pros: "The crew were impeccable."
Cons: "Very narrow economy seats."
Pros: "Check in was swift and efficient. Boarding was organised and flight attendants were friendly and efficient."
Pros: "The Cabin Crew was excellent! Very impressed"
Pros: "The food was better than average. Portions were good and it was tasty. Movie selection was also great and included many recent releases. They provided a hot towel service bedorw and after meals which I loved."
Cons: "Boarding was slow and the plane waited almost an hour after boarding was completed."
Pros: "Premium Economy is awesome! Bigger seats with more leg room than I need (I'm just over 6 feet tall), leg rest (oh yeah) and a travel kit with toothbrush, toothpaste, socks and travel sleep mask. The crew was very good-hospitable and accommodating."
Cons: "Security at Frankfurt is terrible!!! They open every other bag despite scanning with X-Rays!! Took me 50 minutes to get through security and to my next gate."
Cons: "Our booking was changed from cologne to Frankfurt and Frankfurt was hurriable."
Pros: "Efficiency and level of care, quality of food and drinks, not to mention the entertainment on Lufthansa Airlines!"
Cons: "Nothing to write here, whole experience was excellent!"
Cons: "Boading priority was not possible, due to the massive amount of people crowding the entrance. Very hectic and uncoordinated boarding process. I always fly first row to be able to work with my laptop, however due to a last minute plane change the new A321 did not have a 1D or 1F, only 1A and 1C. I had booked 1D, but was moved back to 5D with absolutely no option to change back to the first row to finish my work. I had to sit sideways to be able to work, and it was extremely uncomfortable. I don't understand why they couldn't have moved me back to the first row and move the non-SEN/HON sleeping members back to 5D and 5F, or at least asked them if they would mind. The plane was massively late, and I missed my followup meetings at the airport."
Pros: "I flew in an A380 from LAX to FRA and that is a huge airplane but very nice. The flight from FRA to TLV was full and that airplane had no USB charge ports and no seat back video. I refuse to fly El Al because they don't have video and charge ports. Now I need to avoid flying with Lufthansa."
Cons: "No USB charge ports and no seat back video. They only have movies from Sony."
Pros: "Flight attendants are great"
Cons: "I don't like the Star Alliance. Due to where I live and where I go, I have to use the United/Lufthansa combination. If I book with United, I can't select my Lufthansa seats until 24 hours before my flight. That means I end up in the back of the plane in the least desirable seats. If I book with Lufthansa, then I can't book my United seats. I have booked with United and paid for economy plus, then find as I board, the Lufthansa flight doesn't have economy plus."
Cons: "One of the restrooms was out of service for most of the flight. The other ran out of toilet paper."
Pros: "Lufthansa is amazing!"
Pros: "Was on time all the way, food was OK service was fine"
Cons: "I was so cold in my seat I couldn't get comfortable"
Pros: "No surprises Plenty of leg space for economy Good food"
Pros: "Love Lufthansa"
Pros: "Good was yummy and the setwardess were super friendly. Staff was plentiful and the plan was very modern and high tech. Also had a layover in Munich airport and it was amazing. Very high tech, I took advantage of the napcaps and shower facilities. Also the restaurants were on par with great red win."
Cons: "The flight was 11 hours.... can you make that a little quicker next time, I mean come on it's 2017...."
Cons: "This was an Air Canada flight. Time in line to check baggage in Frankfurt was 2+ hours, baggage was lost but arrived the next day at our destination. Unable to check-in online ahead of time for unknown reasons. Overall the Air Canada ground experience was pretty bad, but the crew/meals/entertainment was good."
Cons: "Air didn't work, stewardess were rude"
Pros: "Flight was on time. They served a light snack in spite of being a very short flight."
Cons: "I liked everything."
Pros: "Crew, food, service location of my seat."
Cons: "The entertainment was lacking. I fly a lot so more variety would have been nice in the movie selections."
Pros: "The crew. They made an uncomfortable flight acceptable."
Cons: "Boarding confusing and flight experience poor. The crew was the only nice part. The rest, not worth the money."
Pros: "on time service"
Pros: "Food is very good for airlines"
Cons: "No entertainment set unless you have a tablet"
Cons: "2.5 h delay"
Pros: "Geat customer service by flight attendants."
Pros: "On board entertainment and it's equipment"
Cons: "Food was lousy. Worst I've experienced . Below par to airlines such as Singapore, Cathay or Japan airlines. Lufthansa food and crew is similar to air china now . Before this travel I used to enjoy flying with Lufthansa."
Pros: "It was a relatively short flight. Boarding went well and efficiently. Flight crew was attentive."
Pros: "Check-in was easy and boarding was efficient"
Pros: "It was nice to have both a dinner served in a timely manner, the additional option of drink offered and the snack before arrival. Staff working the flight were polite and friendly. Thank you for providing both a blanket and pillow - which its own Lufthansa pillow cover. Sadly the Anticipation of a Lufthansa flight still rests on the laurels of years of recognized quality. Sadly the Anticipation was greater than the rewards."
Cons: "It is always so much easier to come up with the issues - wish I had more to add on the previous section. ENTERTAINMENT. Headphones provided required a two-prong jack option. There was only room for one prong - so only one ear had sound. The sound perhaps due to this limitation was poor and I couldn't hear the track. Consequently I choose one film with subtitles - which was helpful. The cabin comfort overall was on the chilly side and required the use of the blanket for the whole trip. Meals - the dinner meal served was a nice selection. However, the dessert was still cold - affected flavor. I think a nice bar of chocolate would have been equally welcome as dessert option. There was a small Ritter - which was nice. Lunch or pre arrival snack - really a poor excuse for what was served as pizza. Very doughy and little filling. The tomato was ok but the other selection served - was not a good choice. Not sure what it was. Also had anticipated a warm cloth before landing as a refresher. The seating is incredibly narrow. While most planes are forced into less space, this ride was particularly uncomfortable. I know that there are different model planes each with its own space limitations, advantages or disadvantages, but - frankly, I had expected better from Lufthansa. Finally, by chance having flown to Europe by Swiss Air - I reluctantly have to say that their comfort level, meals and refreshing cloth made it a more comfortable flight."
Cons: "Missed this flight"
Pros: "Very good cotimer service"
Pros: "on time, smooth ride for a prop plane"
Pros: "The crew was excellent; professional and calm The movie selection was great The plane was quite new and comfortable"
Cons: "The boarding was chaotic for such a large plane; why don't they board by row numbers? My special meal was not very tasty"
Pros: "excellent service by Lufthansa employees ---and with a smile! wheelchair service at Zagreb, Munich and Newark airports was perfect. As an older person with some walking problems, I really appreciated that service. Food was good on all flights and ample wine! Also an after dinner aperitif was offered. I definitely would use Lufthansa again and recommend it to my friends and family."
Cons: "long flight ---but nothing can be done about that ---at least there are movies to watch during the time. I have no problems with Lufthansa."
