Cons: "My luggage was refused at the check-in due to several mistakes from the check-in and Customer service personbil from Qatar. It is now one week after my flight and my luggage is still not with me. I have spend lots of money and written 3 LONG mails to Qatar Customer Service - some have been teplied with a ”we will get back to You” note - but nobody has gotten back to me so far. Not 5 Stars. Actually One star is too good a Grade for this complete service failure from A-Z."

Cons: "No comment"

Pros: "Flight was on time and departed as scheduled. Flight was comfortable and seats were decent. Would have liked a little bigger seats and more legroom in the economy seats"
Cons: "Food was not up to par and seats could have been a bit bigger for the economy bracket."

Pros: "Great on board bar"

Pros: "Boarding, the welcome on board, the food choice and quality were all excellent. The seat was comfortable and I got a few hours sleep. The entertainment screen was big and clear, and the choice of films was good."
Cons: "The choice of films and tv programmes, was good, but before watching each one i chose, I had to endure a couple off minutes of an advert- the same one every time."

Cons: "I was seated between two overweight/obese passengers and as such was very uncomfortable throughout the long-haul flight. There was very little room to move as their body habitus spilt over onto my seating area and occupied the arm space. There needs to be serious consideration to make it mandatory for overweight/obese passengers to purchase two seats to accommodate their size."

Pros: "Nice and spacious aircraft."
Cons: "Some confusion on Hindu meal and vegetarian meals."

Cons: "Transit time was too close with my connection"

Pros: "Over all service was excellent!"
Cons: "Short transfer time made it a bit stressful"

Pros: "Exceptional Service Great Food New Planes Overall excellent"

Pros: "Good, newer wide body aircraft. Good service. No hassles, really. Would fly again. Overall good experience."
Cons: "Newest seating arrangement in 777 300 ER just too crammed. Used to be better. Nothing special about this flight, was expecting a little more space, a little less crowded, a bit better service. But my flight was short hop from BKK to HAN, last leg of flight originating in Doha."

Pros: "Best Arab airline so far.5 star but if I could give more i would"

Pros: "When we flew into Melbourne it was not a happy experience. Seats were cramped and arm rests wouldn't raise. The flight out, even though on the same model plane, was better. There was more room and we could raise the arm rests. For a 13+ hour flight that makes a big difference."
Cons: "Because the tickets listed the same type of plane in both the bad and not so bad flight, it is very hard to know what we're going to get. I'd love to be able to plan to avoid the bad experience, but if they use the same plane in two configurations, there isn't enough information to do so."

Pros: "Food came out 1 am melb time ,2 hours after departure ."

Cons: "This was also a good flight it was just a bit more cramped than the Qatar Flight Los Angeles to Doha so I preferred that flight over the Doha to Singapore"

Pros: "Good timing"
Cons: "Evry thing"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Attendant was rude and never really finished service, never remembered any requests and consistently skipped guests when providing food or drink service, cabin kept oscillating between either too hot or too cold."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "delays with little information and compensation"

Pros: "Check was extremely slow & delayed"

Pros: "Qatar Airways is a nice airline and it's obvious they work on making your flight a pleasant experience with a lot of food, entertainment, etc"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 4 hours upon initially arriving to the airport. While it was important for me to be there when I found out this information because I needed to reschedule my connecting flightso due to the delay, this should not be required. Qatar Airways, knew the flight was going to be delayed at least 10 hours before they announced it. They should have already began the process of rescheduling connecting flights and figuring out problems before passengers arrive to the airport. I probably spent 45 minutes at the ticket counter working things out."

Pros: "Better than costumer service in Thailand"

Cons: "Seats were bunched up together with cramped up leg room."

Cons: "You charge me around $400 Australian dollar because the emigration change the trip until I get the permission to travel overseas that not my fault , why you charge me all this amount ??!! Please return my money"

Pros: "Good seating and entertainment."
Cons: "Sort out the food."

Pros: "Friendly staff, new aircraft, great food"

Pros: "Everything was outstanding"
Cons: "Nothinng really"

Cons: "Staff service was not good"

Pros: "Everything else was good."

Cons: "Maybe the only thing the tea was not hot enough."

Pros: "Loved the spaciuos seats and great leg room. Food superb!"
Cons: "Annoying passenfer who peobably drank too much"

Pros: "Good as usual"
Cons: "Nothing I can think of"

Pros: "All usual good emirates services were back"
Cons: "Didn't find anything worth mentioning"

Pros: "The journey ending"
Cons: "The length of travel!"

Pros: "Airbus from Melbourne to Dubai is very comfortable for a long haul flight"

Cons: "It took over 45 minutes for my bag to come onto the collection conveyor, this seems excessive."

Pros: "Flight schedule is perfect for a family."
Cons: "Crews are not responsive to my call during the flight."

Pros: "Travelled Business Class - a great experience."
Cons: "Slow to board."

Pros: "The plane was spacious and we had really good seats , next to the toilet and wall in front of us. Super, as we were traveling with a toddler and he was able to sit on the floor in front of us and play with his toys. Food came out promptly and was tasty. Loved the goodies for the kids, little blanket and scotch pad."
Cons: "The delay in boarding! It’s hard work when traveling with a toddler."

Cons: "No food choices Food is bad No differentiation from other airlines Level was better years ago"

Pros: "I forgot my laptop in the flight and called almost inertial but could not find it yet."

Pros: "Price, comfort, ice, food and drinks"
Cons: "I just don’t like discomfort of others moving their seat back."

Pros: "Very comfortable flight in A380"
Cons: "Boarding at Melbourne was late and somewhat shambolic. Flight attendants did their job but not with enthusiasm or friendliness. Emirates flight attendants seem to have lost some of their enthusiasm and friendliness."

Pros: "The service, food and boarding were all excellent. It brought back the joy of flying like what used to know in the 80s."
Cons: "None"

Pros: "The food was good and the service was great. I also had a great seat in the front row."
Cons: "We were delayed by over 2 hours We had no where to park when we landed so we had to wait for buses to take us toche terminal There was no new and exciting movies that excited me"

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "option to provide some vegetable sandwich must be there for vegetarian people"

Pros: "Awesome plane, lovely cabin crew, overall went above and beyond to make it as best a flight they could for us! I will definitely fly (and prioritise) emirates as a preferred airline from now on."

Pros: "Not much. The crew were bright and breezy. Ish."
Cons: "Emirates has applied EasyJet seat ramming techniques to its A380 business Class product. As a result even the spacious upper deck of an A380 feels cramped. The seat width in business Class is the same as economy so lying on your side to sleep is an impossibility for all but the diminutive or children. It’s hard to justify 4-5 times the economy fare to sit in such cramped ‘pile em high, sell em cheap’ seats. Breakfast served just before landing at LGW was honestly the most revolting meal I’ve ever been served onboard an aircraft, and I’ve flown Monarch. Less scrambled egg than puréed egg slops with gristly undercooked chicken sausages. Ryanair would blush at serving up such lousy fare. Emirates are paring back the ‘overheads’ in business Class and its starting to show. Cheapening the product (in every sense) might work for some but if I’m going to stump up thousands I think I’ll choose an airline that treats me less like self loading cargo in future."

Pros: "Fast"
Cons: "No tea only coffee. No extra drinks. Crew unenthusiastic. Fewer decent English movies. Will be looking elsewhere after 14 years of being emirates-loyal."

Pros: "Extremely quiet plane since they placed people in front of the half empty plane. Great plane food and internet access, limited to text but still incredibly useful to text people from the air."

Pros: "Enerttainment"
Cons: "Got moved to right near the galley and crew talked loudly complaining about people, during sleeping time and the light was too bright to sleep. Limited vegan food available. Everything seemed too much trouble for a lot of staff, they were rude and impolite. Delay boarding in singapore."

Pros: "So roomy on the a380 Vegetarian food great"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding"

Cons: "Fanatics"

Pros: "Comfortable seat Hostesses were professional and very service oriented - not forgetting your request. Service with a smile Very sooth flight"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Attentive service, had a special treat for me as it was my birthday."

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "70 minutes waiting on tarmac for no obvious reason before 15 + hours flight is not nice, perfect weather, plane 4 hours before take off ready , but ATC allowed 14 small planes to over take us....Dubai airport big disappointment, not enough clean restrooms, overpriced ,not enough food courts ,only retail and duty free, boarding took double time than usual....for me no more Dubai,"

Pros: "Very comfortable flight. Had a few hours sleep also. Very happy."

Pros: "Excellent entertainment on a comfortable sized tv screen."
Cons: "More beverages would be nicer."

Pros: "Very organized boarding"

Pros: "Check-in was efficient and staff were extremely helpful. Flight itself was comfortable, food was actually tasty, and in-flight entertainment was great. Overall an amazing experience compared to US carriers."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit disorganized."

Pros: "On that route the plane can be quite empty on the Melbourne-Singapore leg, meaning lots of space to sleep in coach."
Cons: "Food served very fast (I barely had my first bite that they came with coffee and tea and never seen again). Quality of the food was ok."

Pros: "Granted I was tired after being in transit for 24 hours, but this final of 4 long-haul flights was a real bummer compared to the other flights. Boeing 777 packed to 100% capacity."
Cons: "Really cramped and squished compared to other flights. Toilets at DXB were filthy (I searched around for the cleanest, which was still disgusting), with the cleaning attendant standing around in the restroom doing nothing. Duty Free shops really expensive compared to European airports. Meal on board (breakfast) was really terrible (and that taking into account that airline breakfast is always bad), really the worst I've ever had on a plane, even the Croissant was chewy and very dry. Emirates has become a massive sausage machine people-mover. It has loss its finesse and exceptional service."

Pros: "I enjoyed my first time flying with Emirates from Australia to New Zealand The checking in was quick, easy and the staff were friendly. The crew were polite, and friendly with excellent customer service. Refreshments and Entertainment were first class. I will be flying Emirates from now on."

Cons: "very poor food and seating"

Pros: "Comfortable cabin, attentive crew, if somewhat aloof. Food okay, but better than a 2 ounce package of salty pretzel mix for $3! All in all, quite good."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind."

Cons: "Slow cleanup after food service."

Pros: "Everything was great and the service was really good. The drinks were really nice with many options including a half bottle of red wine."
Cons: "My food took sometime to come back as they ran out of lamb. The clean up service took awhile and my used cups were still on the table. But overall I like the Emirates."

Cons: "I had thought all crew was on training. Service was poor"

Cons: "Love that they fly an a380 into christchurch - a bit overkill but was told it is cheaper to overnight the plane in christchurch vs Sydney or Melbourne"

Cons: "30 passengers on a 60 seat plane. We should have been spaced out due to the Coronavirus, but NO. We reallocated seats which had us all jammed up the front and back with rows of empty seats in between. Not good enough Qantas! I asked to change and the cery pleasant hostess said no we were NOT allowed. I do NOT understand this."

Cons: "Qantas need to improve thier overall customer service"

Pros: "Crew were lovely. Boarding was quick. Flight landed early."
Cons: "Food was average"

Pros: "Dear ok"
Cons: "Some of the Crew attitude could be better"

Pros: "Crew were good. Better service than in business class"

Cons: "Entertainment system was playing up and crew had to reboot it several times"

Pros: "This flight had significantly less turbulence than my flight to Melbourne"
Cons: "The headphone jack to watch movies was broken so I wasn’t able to watch anything over the 14 hour flight. This was especially frustrating because I had to pay for my seat selection and I assumed all of your seats would be in working order."

Pros: "Lovely crew especially Heidi"
Cons: "Nothing, all was well"

Pros: "great food, entertainment & service"

Cons: "Great! On time"

Pros: "Good seats and leg room in economy. Crew and service were friendly and enjoyable."
Cons: "Information from Qantas on the last minute delay to the flight and ongoing changes to the timing, was poor. We got most of our information on the delay and timing was largely from other sources."

Cons: "The flight was held up in Sydney airspace by traffic control causing a short but significant delay which was not recognised by Qantas even though they knew we were connecting to International."

Cons: "The airport closure wasn't PALs fault but the absolute lack of organisation and an attitude "act of God so look after yourself" is disgusting. Flying business expected some service but had nothing and they smiled and said they rebooked me 16 days later. Other airlines would book you on different carriers but not PAL. Last time no matter what special deal they offer."

Pros: "WiFi on board"
Cons: "Still don't like greasy toasties for breakfast but better than butcher muesli"

Cons: "Food was awful."

Pros: "Could not fault"

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delayed by an hour. Gate change to a gate too small to accommodate people. Food was pretty ordinary. Seats very cramped."

Pros: "Overall feel of the flight. The focus in safety"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 3.5 hours. Limited selection of movied"

Pros: "Personable staff"
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours with little info."

Pros: "Crew were great"
Cons: "Lost bags"

Pros: "Flight was late 30 mins"

Pros: "Snacks provided were very nice. Flight was shorter than expected."
Cons: "Nothing we didn't like, all was good!"

Pros: "Great flight on the 787 Dreamliner and the crew were fantastic. I wish I could say the same thing for Baggage services. I have a business meeting tomorrow morning and presently they can't even reconcile their own Baggage Receipt number! I expect more when travelling (and paying) for business class."

Cons: "Plane was approx 1 hour late"

Pros: "All round great experience. All went to plan. A330-200 business class was just right for this short trip."

Pros: "Crew members were attentive and helpful."
Cons: "The seat was too narrow for keg space. Especially when I had someone who seated in front who's big n he has to bend his seat far behind"

Pros: "Once we boarded the experience was positive."
Cons: "The flight was late causing me to be late for a meeting"

Pros: "Staff polite and friendly. Entertainment on my ipad with wants content great."

Cons: "Planes are looking a bit tired."

Pros: "Staff were friendly. Enjoyed getting a meal included in the ticket for everyone."
Cons: "Could be more of a range of movies to watch"

Pros: "The plane itself was nice and comfortable for me. The business class seat fully laid down, and there were lots of entertainment options. The flight was quick! 15hr flight from Melbourne to LAX only took 13 hours!"
Cons: "Several of the food items were either cold or overdone. I asked hostess what the deal was (because their food service is usually great) and she explained that in this new plane (Boeing 787) they removed a lot of the working areas for the crew. They have less space to work in order to be able to prepare food and drinks compared to Qantas's other planes (Airbus A380). This is also a brand new plane for this crew (literally the first flight for some for some of them), and they didn't know where some of the things on the plane were. I imagine after they've used the plane for a while and learn where everything is, they'll get better. I'll find out on the return flight back to Melbourne."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Flight being delayed so I missed a meeting"

Pros: "Flight was straight forward, left and landed on time"
Cons: "QANTAS cancelled my original 10am flight with a text at 5.20am that morning, this stressed me quite a bit as we were flying to Sydney for a wedding that afternoon"

Cons: "Crew service was disgraceful"

Pros: "Typical great Qantas customer service and safety"
Cons: "I don't understand why the fourth busiest route internationally is still so expensive.."

Pros: "Liked service and entertainment"
Cons: "Lack of legroom"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Food was mushy Boarding notice was short The price of the flight"

Pros: "prompt checkin, boarding, baggage came out fast"
Cons: "no drinks service prior to meal, seats squashy, don't eat the stir fried noodles they are tragic, entertainment system didn't work properly - again."

Cons: "- delayed flight because of delayed crew - They've had many crew injuries helping customers moving overhead luggage, so they asked customers to sort their own luggage out. Hey, how about teaching OH&S to staff and employing staff that can perform their duties?"

Pros: "The crew is always nice and approachable. The entertainment is usually high but this time around there weren't many good choices."
Cons: "The food is AWFUL, and has been getting worse as the years go on. Absolutely terrible taste, stomach-churning smells and gross consistency. During boarding I was profiled by one of your gate agents and "selected for further screening" ... not fun. No explanations, just surly, inattentive agents performing further checks on items that had already been twice-checked at security. Awful service."

Pros: "Case was off quickly"
Cons: "No choice in seating"

Pros: "Comfortable plane. Good entertainment. Very nice chicken salad. Friendly staff."
Cons: "The soggy pies were a bit, well, soggy ... The changeover at Dubai seemed unnecessary. Having to go through security tho get from airside to airside was a bit daft. The crew gave little information on how that changeover was going to happen, and when they did it was just before landing."

Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Nothing that is unique to Qantas or just flying in general."

Cons: "Great service , very caring and clean . Looked after me as I had to use a wheelchair . Thank you :)"

Pros: "A cut above all others"

Pros: "Qantas has really upped it's service in the last couple of years, their crew on this flight were very professional."

Pros: "The no fuss but highly professional approach of the cabin crew. The level of comfort in the cabin, with a business class upgrade."
Cons: "I dont like having to track the distance through the outside lounge in both directions to get to the Business Lounge. The Business Lounge is frequently busy and noisy. Very hard to conduct a phone conversation from."

Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "Departure 50mins late, arrival 10mins late then wait 45mins for bags to arrive ... not good enough"

Pros: "Staff were wonderful"
Cons: "The only thing I found was the seat where I sat was a bit noisy. I had to have the sound on my movie turnd up loud to drown out emgine noise."

Cons: "Good service no delayed"

Cons: "I had no vegetarian dinner"

Pros: "Nothing your flight was cancelled I will put a claim to refund"
Cons: "Nothing your flight was cancelled I will put a claim to refund"

Pros: "Crew were nice. It was a very quiet flight so plenty of room to move to other seats - see below."
Cons: "Although the flight was probably less than half full, by the time the trolley got to us there was only one choice of lunch. People in front reclined their seats right back into our faces. Seats were packed together very tightly. Given the lack of space, better to fix seats to only recline a little."

Cons: "Foot rests in economy - better ventilation options airflow"

Pros: "The flight attendants were excellent and provided services above and beyond expectations."
Cons: "The onboard entertainment wasn’t working properly."

Pros: "Awesome cabin crew, amazing food, more leg room than European and American carriers. Amazing price. What else can you ask for in economy?"

Cons: "There was no USB ports to keep a phone charged. There was no power outlets between seats to keep a phone charged."

Pros: "They boarded on time, took off on time, and the service was friendly."
Cons: "Nothing really."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Staff was less than friendly and seats were not very comfortable in coach."

Pros: "they provide such a great service so that I cannot find anything else to complain."

Cons: "WHEN i MISSED MY FLIGHT FROM ISTANBUL TO JEDDAH I DID RECEIVE ANY HELP NOR ANY CARE"

Pros: "Good new airline ,good people nice service,everything was perfect thank you turkish airline"

Cons: "The service on Turkish airlines was not friendly or helpful. The food was not quality, or food tasting. The entertainment didn't include a lot of movies at all. One of the flights did even give headphones. The staff wasn't rude and not helpful, and didn't make the flight comfortable. I had high hopes flying with Turkish Airlines for the first time, but I was thoroughly disappointed with everything."

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Lounge at Ankara not comfortable and food need to change"

Pros: "I like Turkish Airlines they have great service. Very good entertainment."
Cons: "I was flying from Skopje to Istanbul I got only one hour between the two flights and it was difficult to convince them to let me go through the business line so I can catch my flight to LA."

Cons: "My flight was delayed, and the wrong gate was initially listed for my connecting flight, causing me to miss my flight. I asked to transfer to the next flight, but the staff there argued with me and refused to do so, saying I must purchase another ticket. I was forced to purchase a visa, go through passport processing, and purchase a new ticket that cost nearly as much as my entire round trip ticket from the US. I then had to pay to stay overnight in a hotel and had to make alternate arrangements to meet my hosts when I finally reached my destination."

Cons: "First the plane from JFK to Istanbul was two and a half hours late I had a for kids is uncomfortable to wait then try to get a contact with customer service do not give me any straight answers and 3 hours later finally got Somebody explain something overall no good this will be my first time and the last time"

Pros: "Staff was very good"

Pros: "Exxcellent food."

Pros: "Great"

Pros: "Great seat (3A), great service and food. Very friendly crew. Entertainment is great with plenty of movies."
Cons: "Check in in Istanbul was long and confusing due to new safety measures. I had 4 different passport checks with one pat down search and carry on search. Not enough time to even enjoy the Turkish air lounge. However I do. appreciate the safety measures and the effort that come with it. I rather be safe than sorry. The security personnel was very friendly."

Cons: "The delay"

Cons: "Bad bad bad screens on such a long flight are a disgrace. Blurry and dark. Very old. I am a smiles and miles member and fly a lot THY but this was really bad."

Pros: "The food was really good but very little"
Cons: "Unfortunately I asked three ( 3 ) time for plankitte during the flight but with No response from (2 )differant"

Cons: "The gril in LAX she's not comfortable with customers the rest good My logged didn't arrived to Amman I received one and I miss one TAG number TK633655."

Cons: "Very uncomfortable seat arrangement, no leg room."

Cons: "Employees didnt look or act very welcoming. Very little food."

Cons: "The food was mediocre, but I was happy to even receive food on a short flight."

Pros: "Pretty much everything"
Cons: "Was late taking off"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Worst airline I have flown, avoid if at all possible. We saved $400 each on a long haul flight from LAX connecting through IST and we should have spent the extra money. Flight attendants are extremely rude, not helpful, the food is terrible, the planes are all old Boeing 777-300 likely purchased second hand and seem to be falling apart on the inside. I saw flight attendants kicking, punching, and body slamming carts and other items to get them to fit in their racks in the kitchen areas, I hate to think what that means for safety of critical items. Just stay away for your safety and sanity"

Pros: "Comfortable seats (good space for legs), good entertainment (big variety of new movies) and friendly boardpersonal"
Cons: "Online check in was easy but impossible to print my eticket via my iphone (no mobile version for eticket) After Online check in, still had to cue because there was no single drop off available. So no time saving"

Cons: "Attendants were kind and service was great"

Pros: "Food and entertainment."
Cons: "Disorganized boarding and lower than average leg room"

Cons: "all the time same food and we believe the menu should change. the voice of the anounce and music is too much , it is bothering."

Cons: "Poor Food quality which caused food poisioning"

Pros: "Komforlu ve nezih bir ucus icin tesekkurler her sey o kadar guzelki ozellikle murettebat cok nazikti"
Cons: "Hic bir sey"

Pros: "Beautiful plane, loved the larger bathrooms and entertainment selection."
Cons: "My food was delayed and congealed. Not good at all. My Steward in my section was not observant and aloof personality. Not a problem for me but was never offered bread and when asked for tea during service it seemed like I was putting him out."

Pros: "The food on the plane was good and the entertainment options were also nice. Many options for movies etcetera. Also as much food and drinks as you want."
Cons: "The seating was tiny. Not enough room for legs to stretch out. The plane also had Florescent lighting that changed colors every 20 seconds for the first 2 hours of the flight, my wife got nautious. At 11:30pm they served supper, which the food was good but this was supposed to be a red-eye so we were expecting some rest. The lights finally went out at 1200 midnight. They turned them back on at 6:00am for breakfast. I will never under any circumstance fly Turkish Airlines again."

Pros: "When it's on time, this is a convenient flight to Addis."
Cons: "All information was incorrect. Passengers were told to go to gate very early and then were uninformed about late departure. We stood in a line for more than an hour because of this incorrect information. Additionally, the passengers were forced to stand in cold, windy rain because bus shuttle service and boarding was inefficient. Business class ticket holders were afforded no advantage while checking in either."

Pros: "The flt attendants were very good but not exceptional. The entertainment screen was the best I have experienced. Coach was as cramped as every other airline I have flown. Seats were not very comfortable. Food was delicious."
Cons: "Lufthansa, (and all other carriers) need to remove a couple rows of seats in economy class and give passengers the space they deserve. Seats on international flights need to be more comfortable also."

Cons: "I was charged $65.00 for checked luggage; my layover was only 50 minuets and had to rush...last person to board."

Pros: "Excellent service, friendly crew, economy seat was ok even if I’m 6’ 1”"
Cons: "Food was not very good, inflight headset available but very, very low quality for such a noisy environment and their own headset plug would not match the plug type of the entertainment center!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Food quality, crew attitude, seats and entertainment ."

Pros: "The flight was only about 1 hour. Everything ran smoothly once we took off. The crew was very good, providing gate information for connecting passengers."
Cons: "It would have been better if we had departed on time. I don't remember why there was a late departure but it made it difficult for some passengers to make their connecting flight. My husband and I hurried to the gate for our flight to Washington, DC but that flight left late, too."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable, service efficient, entertainment good"
Cons: "When cleaning the dishes away an attendant dropped several trays by my seat, then didn't clean very much, so for the rest of the long flight people were smearing pasta remains on the carpet and my neighbours and I were hopping about trying to avoid the mess."

Pros: "Lufthansa is always incredible."

Pros: "Booked a flight to Italy in economy section and was worried that it would be a difficult and uncomfortable flight. However it exceeded my expectations and never felt that I was in the economy section. They provided excellent service and made sure you were comfortable and attended to. Would recommend"

Cons: "Server was mean"

Cons: "Every thing"

Pros: "Lufthansa is a great airline. My problem is Kayak, who sold the tickets to us."
Cons: "You, Kayak, sold me economy tickets. When I checked in online I saw it for the first time that our tickets were Economy Light. So even though we are Frequent Flyers, we payed $220 for three checkin luggages. I intend to dispute this case."

Pros: "Great service, great crew! If available, will choose Lufthansa for my next flight! Friendly crew, smooth flying, great entertainment choices."

Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "I enjoyed the meal service, drinks and entertainment."
Cons: "My final leg of the trip was delayed by 3 hours, making us sit on the plane. I missed my connection in Minneapolis. Not happy because the airline did nothing to help me get home."

Cons: "Lufthansa cancelled the flight with no reason That is right, they took the fare and cancelled the flight Passenger has no rights with this airline Stay away from Lufthansa"

Cons: "Lufthansa sharing code with United wasn't pleasant at all."

Pros: "Very polite and helpful staff"
Cons: "Food could be better"

Pros: "Very polite and attentive service. Took off and arrived on time, Plane seems new and clean."
Cons: "Seat 31G had extra legroom. That was great, but no one told me that it would be a few inches narrower than normal economy. The elbow rest had a single layer and thus couldn't be shared with the adjacent passenger. I'm 220 lbs and he was around the same size. I literally spent the entire flight with my arms crossed to avoid pressing into him. That seat is meant for kids or very thin people. There should be a warning."

Pros: "Quick straight forward"
Cons: "No entertainment at all"

Cons: "I could not make it to flight due to health problems. I was refused to be given another date for the flight."

Pros: "Punctual departure and arrival. Crew was professional if not always friendly."
Cons: "The worst food I can recall I have ever experienced on a plane. So bad that I didn't have more than an unfortunate bite from my "dinner" entree. The food was especially noteworthy as the trip over was so good... In the entertainment category, the sports and news line-up only had old soccer games..."

Cons: "Armrest was broken on 1st flight making it difficult to get the tray table out."

I was offered chicken even when i asked for asian vegeterian. When i asked to replace with vege option, the crew member replace with sea food, If this happens again, on my return flight, i am not going to let it go."

Pros: "Being seated in econmony plus. Everything behind the scenes that i didn't see that made this flight safe. Very thankful. Didn't matter that not enough coffee was onboard for breakfast."
