Cons: "In-seat entertainment was not working for me, and boarding process could be drastically improved."

Cons: "Nothing significant!"

Cons: "Good"

Cons: "Transit time is good for way too tight"

Pros: "Everyrhing"
Cons: "Everything was fine."

Cons: "Luggages weren’t transferred to Bali together with my flight. Gate check in stroller was sent to baggage claim without notification. I was waiting the whole time after exiting plane."

Pros: "The cabin crew were fantastic. Food was abundant. Most boarding systems worked well. Choosing seats was confusing on website so we were allocated seating. The newer planes had a fantastic touch screen entertainment system. The seats on the newer planes were much more comfortable and roomy"
Cons: "The small seats are squishy on the older planes. The entertainment system on the older planes were dated and difficult to use. I felt sick after the flight to UK but felt fine coming home after one long flight on a newer plane."

Pros: "Everything was excellent, and we even arrived 30 minutes earlier than scheduled..... super."
Cons: "no problems"

Pros: "Boarding was better handled in Singapore - but then that’s Singapore! All very smooth and French champagne served on the flight all the way home! The Kayak website is excellent and I wouldn’t hesitate to use it again - $1,000 cheaper for the flight from Moscow to Singapore than what I could get direct from Singapore Airlines! Well done Kayak!"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Food was terrible , crew were rude, there were delays due to airline problems at both ends of the flight, there was a complete lack of communication about the problems and how long the delays were going to be. Handling of missed connections was abysmal... Overall extremely disappointing."

Cons: "No entertaining at all, only old movies. The seats are very tight. There was a guy snoring during the flight keeping everybody awake. The breakfast was mediocre, just a a bun with fruit"

Pros: "One of the best flights I’ve been on. The seats are spacious and the crew are very friendly"
Cons: "Reclining seats tend to make me caustaphonic with the limited space"

Pros: "Seats more comfortable than premium economy, staff more helpful!"
Cons: "Food was ordinary"

Pros: "Nice and attentive crew"
Cons: "Seat in the economy class is cramped and although the movie selection is quite ok, but the lack of touchscreen is quite annoying"

Pros: "Great amount of legroom in the seats we were lucky enough to be granted. Entertainment was good!"
Cons: "Frantic service from crew. They seemed anxious and rushed at all times. Food was also very average."

Cons: "leg space"

Pros: "business seats were excellent"
Cons: "all was good"

Cons: "Food not hood"

Pros: "The service from the Singapore Airlines is always impeccable. The food is delicious. The business class seat is spacious and wider than all the US airlines. There are plenty storage space in your seat space. The entertainment system has many choices and has a lot new release movies and shows."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the ride on Boeing 777 is not as smooth as the Airbus'. The noise in the cabin is louder. The seat is comfortable but the bed is not. First, the flat bed is not transformed by a button and it needs a physical person to flip it over. The mat is thin and I can feel some hard edges while lying down. The noise from the engine transmits to the bed and it is hard to sleep even with the noise cancellation headphone."

Cons: "The seats and there is not much leg room"

Pros: "It was good"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Boarding at Singapore airport was shocking, as we had to wait 6 hours for our flight. Rating low to the crew mainly because of the ground staff as they were not very communicative to begin with about the explanation for our delay. Only when the passengers got a bit more vocal about wanting explanations, they started giving us a bit more information. All estimated times given for boarding the flight were incorrect by a big margin! Seemed more like they were giving shorter wait time for boarding just to please the passengers, where as they were well aware of how long the wait would be."

Pros: "Natalie is a friendly cheery diligent flight attendant who needs special mention. (Sigapore to Brusane fight 6.1.18)"

Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "Entertainment system are old age and poor quality TFT screen"

Pros: "Best Inflight Service Best Inflight Food Best Lounge"

Pros: "Excellent service. Good food. Very attentive and responsive flight crew."
Cons: "Space was too tight"

Pros: "I liked there was entertainment"
Cons: "It was an old tired plane"

Cons: "Our flight to Bali was cancelled due to the volcano eruption. We did not receive any compensation, but Singapore/Silk Airlines told us they were able to get us a flight home to LAX instead, but that it wouldn't be until the next day. We spent money on a hotel and food and waited until the next morning, got to the airport early for check in only to find that Singapore/Silk had in fact, given up our seats that they had promised us. They said that we now would have to wait another day just to get a flight from Singapore to LAX. We asked to speak with a manager, and eventually were able to get two seats due to cancellations. This was intended to be a very special and romantic trip that was essentially ruined. Since no one could have anticipated that the volcano would cause cancellation, we should be refunded for our flights. We are so crushed that we did not get to go to Bali, and now we may NEVER get to go because we are out of money. At the VERY least, the leg of our flights from Singapore to Bali, and Bali to Singapore, should be refunded. We are extremely disappointed."

Pros: "Crew very good as was entertainments system"
Cons: "You cannot disguise the age of the 777, 30 year old design. Noisy and basic compared to 380, 350."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and whole on ground process was efficient."
Cons: "Aircraft not as clean as expected from a flight departing from their home port. Can't put my finger on it, but standards have slipped for slipped for SQ, albeit from a very high standard."

Pros: "Good reliable SQ service"
Cons: "I got the seat with communications box on the floor under the seat in front... no foot room :-("

Pros: "Staff were awesome. given that my wife and son both had food poisoning."
Cons: "But we were meant to fly on an A380. This was an A320. Nowhere near the same legroom. Less entertainment options. No USB charging."

Pros: "Neat & clean flight.good cabin crew members.good service."
Cons: "Food served was not so good. Toilets are very small compared to other flights..speacially SFA - Singapore flight."

Pros: "The staff were helpful, once I had complained enough."
Cons: "Aircraft was old, tired, and uncomfortable. The seat of my chair was not attached. There were huge comms boxes below every 2nd seat so zero legroom. Screens were so old they were unwatchable and tiny. Air Asia provides a superior service for a fraction of the price."

Pros: "Consistency of service, efficient"
Cons: "Having to convert chair to bed and vice versa. Prefer one that can just go flat st touch of button"

Pros: "Food, entertainment, cleanliness of the restrooms"
Cons: "There was a passenger on the return flight who had the window shutter up during sleep time right across my row, and the cabin was so bright to sleep for me. I notified the crew but they were not keen on bothering the passenger"

Pros: "Food, entertainment, cleanliness of the restrooms"
Cons: "I was travelling with a toddler and they did not have a toy or activity to give her on a 15 hour flight. We were told to keep our seats upright during meal times and to keeo our window shutters down during other times. This made sense. But there were passengers right in front of us who had their seats reclined during meal time and the crew did not tell them anything."

Pros: "Everything is excellent!"

Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "The leg rests didn't have enough room to be useful. I'm only 5'10", which is average, not tall, so they should have had more legroom."

Pros: "The service is amazing. The stewardess are always smilin and very helpful. If you'd like anything extra, just ask and they'll bring it right over. The entertainment onboard was top notch"
Cons: "I would have wished for better back supported seats. 14hrs on a flight isn't quiet the best."

Pros: "Friendly and approachable"

Pros: "Great staff. Aircrafts has more leg room. The food and entertainment was good as well."

Pros: "The ground staff in Sydney!"
Cons: "From the moment we checked in in Singapore there was no service. Having travelled first class and Economy before with Singapore I was very disappointed with Business class. My husband and daughter were in First Class. The service was below average to say the least - more training required from check in to on board - (in Sydney the staff on the ground went above and beyond) In Singapore it was very fake and contained no sincerity. The lounge itself was also ordinary compared to others, no Amenity kits or PJs in business class - even Virgin Australia has that! I was so excited to be travelling Singapore again given past experiences but now Im not sure I will want to fly them again."

Pros: "Service was good, but then that's expected."
Cons: "Leg room was bad... The foot rest attached to the seat in front of me kept lowering itself on its own."

Pros: "1. Clean. 2. Punctual. 3. Coke Zero."

Pros: "Good crew, but working with some tired, old equipment."
Cons: "The padding in my seat seemed to be a bit thin and became progressively more uncomfortable as the flight progressed. The in-flight entertainment systems are really showing some wear & tear. The screen was blurry, the letters on the control buttons had work off and the sound quality was terrible."

Pros: "Friendly quality staff, good aircraft."

Pros: "Friendly staff, new aircraft, great food"
Cons: "Just some help with hand luggage"

Pros: "Seats comfortable. Entertainment was extensive. Food was good!"
Cons: "Landing was rough!"

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: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Nothing"

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"

Pros: "EVERYTHING"
Cons: "N/A"

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"

Pros: "Decent food, real utensils, free wine, excellent entertainment system, free limited wifi. Try finding that on a budget airline"

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: "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: "Food selection Wine not as good as usual"

Pros: "Great flight, very attentive staff, gluten free meal was not very good. At all"

Pros: "Really comfortable, good service."

Pros: "The crew was very nice and professional. I want to hightlight the exceptional quality of the meal served"

Pros: "F"

Cons: "There wasn't anything about the flight to and from Sydney to New Zealand we didn't like."

Pros: "I requested a blanket for my Son and was told there was none available....."
Cons: "On disembarking I notice a various overhead compartments with bags full of blankets. Why was a deny a simple Blanket? This is unacceptable in an airline that praises itself to be one with the best customer services.......Bad, really bad...."

Cons: "Nothing"

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: "Boarding"
Cons: "Toilets"

Pros: "seats reclined nice, movie selection great"
Cons: "i didn't care for the manner in which you are charged for baggage fees"

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

Pros: "Entertainment was good, staff friendly and accomodating,"

Pros: "."
Cons: "."

Pros: "Everything was fine, a bit late taking off but the time was made up"

Cons: "The plane's interior needed a makeover, as is old"

Cons: "Had the weather in Wellington cooperated, I would have made it to the AKL-SYD leg and, most likely, would have enjoyed the travel experience. I plan to fly WLG-AKL tomorrow evening via another airline. Please rebook me onto Qantas tomorrow in evening."

Pros: "fast trip from japan all ontime quick boarding and unloading"
Cons: "the food main meal on an australian airline consisted of meal a) sushi etc b)Japanese style chicken and boiled rice (chicken thigh full of fat and sauce was greasy) could not eat c)pasta twists with dried up sauce (could not eat) very poor quality food will bring my own next time no plain option"

Cons: "Delayed 2 hours with little info."

Pros: "IFE Snack - bacon quiche Service"

There were a quite a few passengers booked on the connecting flight but Qantas made no attempt to get us on board it and instead re-booked us for the next flight which was scheduled for 2.5 hours later but, in fact, left nearly 3.5 hours later. Breakfast consisted of rubber egg."

Cons: "cabin VERY hot and cramped"

Pros: "IFE for such a short flight, headset free. Cabin crew were quite pleasant. B737-800 series (Next Gen.) is a nice plane."
Cons: "Cramped. Lunch was that revolting beef & kale pocket (again!). Highest a/f of Tiger, Virgin & QF, which is fine if it’s worth it, which it most definitely wasn’t."

Pros: "The staff did the best they could to accommodate everyone on a full flight in economy. The passenger in front of me had a failed entertainment system and the staff handled it very well."
Cons: "The leg room is obviously minimal in economy but compared to Singapore Airlines this was cramped and when the seat in front reclines it's almost impossible to find a comfortable position if you're over 5 foot 9! food was below par."

Cons: "My name is Parag Mokashi, Indian Passport No. Z1788332 had booked 2 return air tickets from Singapore to Auckland with details as follows: Qantas Airways Flight QF6 - Depart Singapore Changi Apt, SG (SIN) 01Dec16 (Thu) 23:50 Arrive Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 02Dec16 (Fri) 10:50 Flight QF145 - Depart Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 02Dec16 (Fri) 11:55 Arrive Auckland International Apt, NZ (AKL) 02Dec16 (Fri) 17:10 Flight QF144 - Depart Auckland International Apt, NZ (AKL) 13Dec16 (Tue) 08:35 Arrive Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 13Dec16 (Tue) 10:15 Flight QF81 - Depart Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 13Dec16 (Tue) 11:15 Arrive Singapore Changi Apt, SG (SIN) 13Dec16 (Tue) 16:30 I had booked these tickets online through CheapTickets.sg on 17th September 2016. While booking the tickets mine and my wife’s full details such as the Name, Nationality and Passport were given. In spite of this nowhere was it mentioned in the Quantas terms and conditions or any prompt/popup given while booking the tickets that Australian transit visa is required for Indians since the flight is via Australian city. I had booked the tickets well in advance and had enough time to get transit visa had there been any information about it mentioned. On 1st December 2016 when we went to the Changi airport we were not allowed to board the plane as we did not have the Australian transit visa. We were told by Quantas personnel at the airport to go to the Australian embassy in Singapore to get the transit visa and that we would get it within a day. Next day we went to the embassy and found that the Australian visa is done by VFS global at a different address. When went there they informed us that Australian visa takes minimum 5 days. I had all my hotel bookings in New Zealand already done hence I had no choice to take a direct Singapore Auckland flight via Singapore Airlines at a very high price on the next day. I also lost one day of my hotel booking in Auckland and had to forfeit the money. I and my wife had to go through the psychological trauma of being refused to board the plane, then the next day running around the Australian embassy / VFS global office for trying to get the Australian transit visa and facing the uncertainty regarding our new Zealand trip which was planned well in advance for our 25th wedding anniversary"

Pros: "The check in process was seamless - we did not queue at all The crew were great and gave us a bottle of bubbles when we landed The food was surprisingly good"

Cons: "Hot food disgusting."

Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Food was more wordt than in the past"

Cons: "Not applicable"

Pros: "The crew very a mezzaning"

Cons: "AWFUL CREW. NEVER FLY. NOT CLEAN. NOT NICE."

Pros: "Crew and flight where amazing. Thank you"

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: "The flight itself was good. Turkish airlines provides some nice amenities; which I don't actually use. But they're nice."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled on its scheduled day. So I had to wait an extra day to get home."

Pros: "Loved the amenities kit. The hostess was very nice and always helping with a smile."

Pros: "Great service and food"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Service and bag policy"
Cons: "The house food"

Cons: "Lack of communication and unfriendly crew."

Pros: "Another excellent business class service from the team at Turkish Airlines. The food offering was high quality, and the little cultural influences made it an enjoyable experience."
Cons: "The cabin design is perhaps looking a little dated and tired compared to some of its business class competitors. This was also true of comparing the 3 flights I had on a Boing 777 model versus one of the short haul legs on a more modern Airbus."

Pros: "Never got the chance to actually try it."
Cons: "I was penalized because of a political issue between USA and Turkey. I couldn't get the visa to travel there, and despite that I couldn't get a refund. I am 1k with united air, and will never include THY in my plans."

Pros: "Leg room is better than any other airline"
Cons: "Flight attendants are cold and act like they hate their jobs."

Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "Seats, food and service"

Pros: "I sat in coach but was treated like I was in first class. Hot towels. Entrees were very excellent. The food was above what I expected coach meals to be from my experiences flying different carriers to over 8 different countries. The customer service was amazing! The lady flight attendant for my section was very attentive and friendly. When I came out of the bathroom, I accidentally interrupted one male flight attendant from doing his job, he politely gestured which reassured me that he would be right with me when he was done with what he was doing. I asked him if they had any heartburn or antiacids available which they didn't. These 2 interactions with the flight attendants made the flight very enjoyable."
Cons: "I was in couch and in the middle seat. I usually get the aisle or window so it was a hard adjustment to sleep in the middle seat because I didn't have leg room and couldn't lean my body against anything so I had to shift often to avoid my bottom from feeling numb."

Pros: "A much nicer 777 on this leg."
Cons: "The lounge at IST is overcrowded and lacks sufficient showering facilities. There was leftover food everywhere that the overworked staff tried, in vain, to keep up with."

Cons: "Crew not helpful, flight delayed, no help when I missed my connecting flight due to the delay"

Pros: "Food was good"

I was force to by one more ticket when I live from I very small income. So know my 3 months social security I have to pay the new ticket. No mony left for food or my medication."

Cons: "Could not order my special meal in advance, because of turkish airlines website problems, and ended up fasting"

Pros: "Fantastic airline crew, actually good food and plenty of beverages offered, really nice complimentary amenities like pillow, blanket and toiletries bag."

Cons: "The tv sett wasn't working ."

Pros: "The flight crew were exceptionally nice and the food was the best I have had on any airline."
Cons: "The flight was delayed without any explanation and I was worried about making my connection in Istanbul."

Cons: "Luggage was held back in Istanbul. It was broken into and never made it to NYC. They shipped to Texas at which point it had been opened and rifled through. Unprofessional."

Pros: "Food lemon juice entertainment and staff in general"
Cons: "Seats are very tight and availablty of drinks is limited during flight. They ran out of water"

Pros: "Missed my flight because the airport changed gates and didn't announce it. Was told I could pay a penalty o in excess of $450 to be placed on another flight, meanwhile same flights from Istanbul to Amsterdam were going for $213. I will avoid Turkish Airlines at all costs. Customer service is terrible. The most unprofessional, rude, ignorant, and disrespectful staff represent Turkish Airlines at IST. Furthermore, an email complaint has been ignored."

Pros: "new aircrafts, easy boarding ontime departure and arrival"
Cons: "Staff needs to be more friendly, food needs to be better in quality (ie.Etihad food is amazing). knowing that the flights are going to INDIA & PAKISTAN they should add some indian Pakistani channels"

Pros: "Entertainment options were excellent for adults and ado. The crew were very accommodating"
Cons: "Screaming children and passengers that don't follow simple instructions or cue with respect"

Cons: "Board on tarmack..steps...steps..carrying carry on soo difficult..no one to help..not good at all!!!"

Pros: "Onboarding, crew attention, lounge access"
Cons: "Food was even better in Turkish Airlines before."

Pros: "Overall was a good trip"
Cons: "Choices of food. The food was not that great"

Pros: "The food was excellent"
Cons: "Flight attendants did not respond to the call button. I went almost three hours before getting a drink of water"

Cons: "Announce too early boarding time, 50 minutes late for boarding."

Pros: "Professional and helpful crew, clean airplane."
Cons: "Flights was late, no information was given as to when the flight would board or the reason the flight was late."

Pros: "I paid for WiFi but the service didn't work perfectly, I wanted to switch device,which you have to logout first. The button didn't work"

Cons: "I asked for sugar 3x before finally getting it (1 hour), but by then the coffee was cold and I had to request a new one and wait another 10 mins :)"

Pros: "Everything was perfect during the flight."
Cons: "However, our luggage did not arrive."

Pros: "The bread service"

Pros: "Worst flight ever. Please enforce conduct code."
Cons: "I had to ask a neighboring passenger if her would allow me 20mins of my flight without his rear end in my face. He was a fairly large man and constantly bending over in the isle to chat with his family. His infant was being attended to by his wife who constantly paced around to shake the baby (I'm sure the baby was annoyed as well). The baby finally spat up on the floor and seat. Everyone in the family could not sit still more than 5mins at a time, jumping up, moving around, switching seats, passing items. The men turned the area into a social scene/bar. I was too distracted by all this activity hovering over me to enjoy reading or relaxing. I constantly had rear ends in my face, and I constantly had to dodge and lean in my seat. The aforementioned tall man even had the nerve to fold away my television monitor when I dozed off so that it would not be an obstruction for his activity. By then I'd had enough. The This flight was terrible. Non of the staff requested better conduct or mindfulness of the other passengers. I believe the airline should strongly consider having a separate space for large families, families with babies, or at least have a code of conduct to which passengers should respect for the sake of every paying customer's ability to enjoy such a long flight."

Pros: "flight was not overcrowded, allowing space for more comfort; clean lavatory, good food/drink, friendly staff"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The food on Turkish Airlines is fantastic, and the crew are exceptionally polite. Actually the best meals I've eaten on an airplane."
Cons: "On my flight from Istambul to NYC I was told I had been given an aisle seat but in fact I got the middle of the middle. If there were no aisle seats left, it would have been better if the person had just told me that, rather than saying I had an aisle seat, and I found out later. It was very distressing because I have diverticulitis, which is a serious stomach complaint, which means I need to be able to get to the loo! I felt that they could have been more understanding about this."

Pros: "Nice entertainment, nice services, very kind service crew"
Cons: "Everything was so good i can't say; i didn't like something"

Pros: "Attention, service, flight."

Cons: "I liked it all"

Pros: "flights on time.."
Cons: "Our pre-ordered meals were not served"

Pros: "It was an uneventful flight. The entertainment system worked well and food was good."
Cons: "The lights kept coming on every few minutes making sleep nearly impossible."

Pros: "Nice people"
Cons: "Some games for kids"

Pros: "The crew was fantastic!"

Pros: "The seats were very comfortable"
Cons: "The entertainment"

Pros: "Movies and bathrooms"
Cons: "1. UNABLE TO CHOOSE SEATS. 2.Unaware that ticket did not include baggage fee 3.Most uncomfortable seats in 50 years of flying Will not use Momondo again unless I can choose seats and be made aware of ACTUAL COST OF FLIGHT."

Cons: "Did my check-in 24 hours before to make sure I would have an aisle seat ... Lufthansa changed my seat at last minute to a window seat!!! What a poor customer experience."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "good crew ok food for airline"
Cons: "despite an outrageous price we had problems registering our luggage economy light never heard of it"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "very rude staff. I think what they do is illegal. they lie to customers and advertise wrong information. I wish i had the time to take them to court."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly and attentive. Seats were very tight and uncomfortable, specially for a 6’3 tall person!"
Cons: "Boarding could be a little bit more organized"

Cons: "Asked for ONE piece of bread, and such a big company. Didn’t have ONE piece of bread to provide. Shame. But not surprised, considering the focus they had with onboard shopping, cut coat, and generate revenue very oriented."

Cons: "Lufthansa’s needs to get their staffing act together. It took 1 1/4 hrs to check in due to insufficient staff & then once on board the flight it was announced there was no food available due to staffing shortages"

Cons: "Improving customer service during delay but overall good"

Pros: "Overall"
Cons: "Space was limited"

Cons: "The airline cancelled my ticket and did not notify me. I found out only when I arrived to check my bag. Lufthansa cancelled my flight because they said I had “no showed” for my previous flight two weeks before. This was absolutely not true."

Pros: "Crew seem competent, airplane was fairly clean and not too old, food not awful, ac outlets in economy, headphones not the worst."
Cons: "I hate that there's no free checked bag anymore! Two mile walk with heavy bag in Frankfurt. Provide carts in FRA! Crowded: seat pitch small, seats narrow, flight totally full, toilets filthy by the end. IFE: English options boring (German options not subtitled), touch screen not responsive."

Cons: "flight attendant gave me a meat sandwich when i asked for the vegetarian option due to my vegetarian diet and i became sick because of this"

Pros: "entertainment was good"
Cons: "the flight attendants were mostly absent. The flight attendants on the other side of the aisle were much more attentive and nice"

Pros: "The crew was nice and the movie selection was decent. Food was ok. As good as it can be when you pay $2,500 for a flight ticket knowing that they are not really there to offer you a service, they are there to make their own money knowing that as a traveler you really have no options other than an airplane if you want to go across the ocean."
Cons: "The difference here is that in a 9 hour flight you want to keep hydrated. Crew seemed lazy...they would not bring water to travelers very often...and when I called a flight attendant with the button call and politely asked if I could have some water, she seemed pretty annoyed and told me I can just stand up and go take my water in the back where they store food. NOT A GOOD SERVICE FOR $2,500!!!! It’s outrageous!! Seats become smaller and smaller...and you keep asking about my experience...$2,500 to travel seating in a miniature seat with no leg room is a bit much...and I know no flight company cares about this...we have no choice...either take that or don’t travel, right?"

Cons: "Paid for and reserved bassinet seat but didn't receive bassinet seat. No one wanted to help. Very disappointed."

Pros: "Nice entertainment selection"
Cons: "Too many snacks, food was low quality, flight was delayed with no reason given,"

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."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "A snoring passenger in a seat ahead of me. Tight seat."

Pros: "Flight was good."
Cons: "They lost 2 of my checked in bags and damaged 2 others."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Almost everything"

Cons: "The food was terrible. I couldn't eat it, and I can eat almost anything. Sorry! Everything else was good. The staff were amazing. I will fly with Lufthansa again. Thank you."

Cons: "Lost a whole day and a half of vacation!"

Pros: "Boarding and timeliness"
Cons: "Entertainment system on 2 out of 4 flights didn't work well. Only 1 of the earphones worked on my seat, practically useless. Crew was grumpy the whole time, and food was average at best."

Pros: "Food is provided"
Cons: "Delayed 6 hours on the plane"

Pros: "Smooth and comfortable flight . Awesome service by the crew"

Pros: "everything was great. Service and pilots are at the top level of the proffessionalism."

Pros: "Flight on time, crew was efficient even though the the flight was full."
Cons: "food. The chicken had a bad taste and smell to it."

Cons: "Bought these tickets almost a year in advance. Never given the option to select seats. Both my husband and I were stuck in the middle seats or not together on each leg of our flight. Food was horrible on every leg. Husbands tv did not work. I am petite and seats too small even for me. never again will o give this airline my money."

Pros: "They were waiting for us even we were running late from connecting flight, everybody was super nice"

Pros: "I flew economy. Good plane, ok food, frequent meals, good coffee, free beers and wine,"
Cons: "economy: The chairs were ok but I've had better ones."

Pros: "It's terrible more than 3 hrs delay!!! They should. Ompensate for my parking and extra food for the person picking us up they had to wait met than 3 hrs!!!"
Cons: "It's terrible more than 3 hrs delay!!! They should. Ompensate for my parking and extra food for the person picking us up they had to wait met than 3 hrs!!!"

Cons: "Their silly 8 kg weight limit for carry on baggage was a surprise and really not consistently enforced. Couldn't go through the one pass customs line adding more than an hour to that part of my trip. Crew couldn't answer questions about dairy in the food."

Cons: "The offer to travel the next day by giving up the current reservation for a price, making us wait for almost two hours and then telling us that we will be travelling the same day instead of the next day. Initially they requested us to help them as they were over booked with an offer and we informed all our relatives, later with the withdrawal of the offer we had to call everybody again. A whole lot of confusion , discomfort and mental torture."

Pros: "Movie selection was great. Crew came through with drinks frequently. Overall nice smooth flight."
Cons: "Car seat was lost even though it was brought on the plane and not checked. Didn't care for the food but it was personal preference."

Cons: "Frankfurt airport chaos Lyon customs downstairs in arrivals checkin upstairs so they can't view your items if you are claiming tax back. Clever French move. Obviously happens a lot"

Pros: "Lufthansa Flight from Cape Town to Munich canceled due to mechanical problems. Flight rebooked with great difficulty and confusion by Lufthansa. Condor and United picked up the pieces and got us home."
Cons: "We didn't like the total confusion and errors made by Lufthansa staff during the rebooking process after the flight cancellation."

Pros: "This was still a Lufthansa flight. Meaning there was a lot of leg room, the food was nice and the staff was great."
Cons: "The only thing i did not like is that for such a long flight (5 hours), also being an international flight, i was expecting an entertainment center, but there was none."

Pros: "I am a little bit disappointed with Entertainment for this flight. No update movies, more of them classic or old. Boarding are was not clean and crowded"

Cons: "My flight was cancelled due to the pilots' strike. I only learned about this when I attempted online check in. Lufthansa never attempted to notify me. Then when I called in to the Romania Service Center to rebook, the phones went down in the middle of the call. That is understandable given the extreme volume of calls they were handling. What is unacceptable, is that they made no attempt to contact me once the phones were up. I ended up calling the U.S. service center at 1am local time to rebook...only 3 hours before I needed to leave for the airport. It took an hour - which I paid for at direct dial international rates - to find a flight. I'm very grateful for the U.S. service rep who was kind and helpful. She was the one bright spot in this poorly handled situation."

Pros: "The crew was very assertive, plenty of snacks and drinks, good food. Flight went on smooth and the captain lender splendidly. Seats were comfortable with plenty of leg space, entertainment had numerous choices. Would recommend to friends."
Cons: "Everything's was fine"

Pros: "Good pilot and staff and service"
Cons: "There was no entertainment at all. The flight from Frankfort to Tel Aviv did not provide a pillow or a blanket. I arrived cold with a stiff neck. The personal spotlight didn't shine in the right seat."

Pros: "Overall the flight was ok"
Cons: "I was not a fan of the food but more important, the headset lack was broken. I had to pull the cable constantly to be able to hear something"

Pros: "The cabin crew were well trained, hospitable and efficient. The young lady assigned to our section of the aircraft worked endlessly to address the needs of passengers, and remained extremely pleasant and often humorous, throughout the passage."
Cons: "The boarding process unnecessarily was long and hot. We stood in the jet ramp line for nearly 15 minutes before entering the aircraft. There was no ventilation and the air was tepid. The seats were smaller in Economy Class than on competitor carriers. The lavs were unattended to during the 7 hour flight and, consequently, were filthy during the last hour or two. The food was mediocre, at best, but at least the cocktails were not an upcharge. Enough alcohol can make just about any food palatable."

Pros: "The only Lufthansa leg of the journey."

Pros: "The crew was wonderful and very accommodating. We were also very impressed by the plane itself. The seating was the most comfortable either of us has experienced on an overseas flight."
Cons: "Good for entertainment but the headphone insert in my particular seat would only play through one ear. Not a headphone issue, they worked fine in another screen. Inconvenient for a long flight."
