Pros: "I got a very good seat."
Cons: "Qatar in Belgrade didn't tell me about alchocol bottle I bought in the Duty Free and that i could not go with it all the way to melbourne even bag was sealed and receipt was visible.

Pros: "The food and service."

Cons: "Had an 11hr delay overall, 3.5hrs sitting on the tarmac only to be told to disembark for dinner at the airport. Then told that we won't be getting on until 7am the next day, but only really started boarding at 8:30am. By the time we were told about the reschedule to the next morning, it was too late to get a hotel room (too far away) and was told that I could use a 'Quiet Lounge' at the airport (which wasn't quiet). While waiting to board at 7am the next day, ground staff told us that they had to change the plane so there would be a further delay. On boarding, we discovered that it was the SAME PLANE."

No justification or any reason were given to us. We are travelling with a baby. We had to get a taxi to return to our home and return back to the airport after 4.5 hours. Called qatar airways and send them a xomplaint email. No one cared to answer. The worst flight ever. Will never go with qatar airways anymore"

Pros: "The staff is friendly and attentive. Food has been flavorful and consistent in quality. Blankets and pillows have been clean. The energizer juice was an excellent option."
Cons: "The cleaning crew was in a hurry and there was a used cotton ear swab in the remote armrest. The tray did not close snugly back when closed up.

Cons: "They arbitrarily switched the flight one hour ahead of schedule, with no notice so half the passengers ended up missing it."

Pros: "Everything was excellent as I have come to expect. The business class seat was not one of those new diagonal ones, but made a full width flat bed, so I could sleep for a few hours. Food and service excellent."

It took me more than 30'walk with the little boy. The woman gave me hotel voucher also gave me wrong informations. Which took me long time to pass the screen scan that I do not need it. I was so up set when the guy wanted to conform the hotel voucher while I already had it. I had to walk with luggage and the baby. It was terrible while I was not feeling well and my son wanted to sleep."

Cons: "Delayed in both directions. Happens. But zero announcements. Zero. Staff didn't know what was going on. Complete chaos."

Pros: "The crew was excellent, the food good."
Cons: "The entertainment system, in three out of four long flights, did not work. In the one that "worked", the sound was terrible and this made the experience totally unsatisfactory. A major airline should avoid this."

Pros: "There was almost nobody on the flight. In flight entertainment was awesome too."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The flight was excellent, with good food and good service. The crew was very professional and courteous."
Cons: "Our experience in the Istanbul airport. We got off our connecting flight and no one was willing to provide us with directions. We had to stand in a security line for two hours thinking that we had as a consequence missed our connecting flight. Again, no communication. We found out when we finally got through security (we had already gone through security at the Paris airport), everyone was in the same situation and our flight had been delayed. It would have been helpful to know that as we were standing in line. While in the line, many people panicked and starting pushing their way to the front of the line. Again, no officials were there to keep order. It was truly a mess! And creating too much anxiety and stress that I really wanted to not have on my trip back to the USA. I realize that in these times, we must go through added security, but I am accustomed to US airports where there is more communication over the intercom and by airport officials. In Istanbul, it seemed that everyone did not want to give directions, and airport officials seemed to avoid the public they were there to serve."

Pros: "The flight was good. The food tasted great. They had some good movies I haven't seen yet. The flight attendants were constantly up and down the isles either giving you something or taking away trash. The leg room was sufficient."
Cons: "The customer service on the phone and in person was completely unprofessional, rude and a bit uneducated. They yelled at me when I asked them "is there anything yall can do to fix this?". And then in person I watched them get out of their seats and yell at this older woman."

Pros: "Professional and friendly staffing, comfortable flight."
Cons: "We realized when boarding to first flight that they did not included my son on next connection flight...oops when it was addressed they fixed it in a professional matter with appologies at boarding."

Cons: "In flight entertainment system was not functioning. Turkish refused to provide hotel in Istanbul as per their policy even after being told by Turkish employees in the USA and France that this would be provided due to my 20 hour layover. I will not fly Turkish again in the future."

Cons: "Enjoyed the hotel stay on the long layover"

Pros: "Will definitely fly Turkish Airlines again!"

Cons: "No being able to rebook!"

Pros: "Staff were all amazing, meals pretty good for airline food, plenty of tv, movie and music options to stay occupied for the long trip."

Pros: "love the food and the crew service."
Cons: "Aircon could have been better. Someone got sick during the flight because of that."

Pros: "Friendliness, attentiveness, food, clean bathrooms, and great wine selection. I would fly Turkish Airlines anywhere!!!"

Cons: "I have lactose intolerance and I tried ordering the special meals. However the lactose free meals are not good. I got it more than once, it's always dry grilled chicken, steamed veggies and plain rice. Overall it's a dry meal and no flavorful at all. On this trip I didn't order a special as I was hoping one of the options wouldn't have lactose."

Pros: "Lots of crew members Pay attention Food was good"
Cons: "The boarding was chaotic"

Pros: "The food and entertainment on the plane"
Cons: "The Turkish Airlines staff can be very rude, non-communicative in passing along information. They do not like you to ask questions nor do they want to answer your questions. They yell at you or just simply ignore you. No legroom. The crew did not mention that are flight was delayed prior or that we missed our connecting flight and what to do from there. I was given a hotel room during my layover but its in a scary neighborhood and it smells like sewage is nearby. The Grand Yavaz. The cheaper price is not worth the hassle. I can spend my good money elsewhere...i will be sure to warn others."

Pros: "Food"

Pros: "i love the movies"
Cons: "The cabin crew was rude and disorganized"

Pros: "Loved the leg room and movie/live TV selection"

Pros: "Had emergency exit row with plenty of leg room"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The friendly atmosphere, and the choice of food and drink."
Cons: "Nothing was wrong"

Pros: "Every thing. The overall service in economy is equal to business class on American carriers, with the obvious exception of the seat itself. A light breakfast meal on a 45 minute flight? Absolutely incredible. I've also experienced this with Lufthansa in the past, but they didn't have seat-back entertainment on short flights."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."

Cons: "Small food/entertainment selection, jarring landing, inattentive baggage handlers."

Pros: "The food was great, had a chance to sample some Turkish cuisine. Way better food than any meal you would get from an American-based airline. Entertainment was excellent, great variety of TV shows and movies. The flight attendants were attentive and helpful. The Batman v. Superman theme was a nice touch. Decent leg room in economy class."

Pros: "The crew was great, the food was good as was the entertainment :-). The bathrooms were even decent"

Cons: "They missed my connecting flight, were terrible at communication"

Cons: "Smelly and disorder"

Pros: "Very good food. Quite an extensive movie selection. Staff was very pleasant."
Cons: "It takes a bit long to complete all processes"

Cons: "The service is slow and flight crew do not go out of their way to connect or provide extra service. In fact they"

Pros: "Smooth. Polite. Delicious"

Cons: "we never ended up taking the flight. delays in istanbul had everything backed up. the customer service was entirely ineffective...no lines, no plan, no information. after waiting forever with zero assistance, we bypassed the airline completely and booked a new flight in order to make sure we were able to return to work on time."

Pros: "I didn’t get the chance to experience the seats because I didn’t get to be on the flight due to a huge mistake of a Lufthansa employee"
Cons: "Hire better competent people!"

Pros: "It was short."

Cons: "It would be nice if the seats had more leg room. Staff was super nice. Food is not bad"

Cons: "Food could be better"

Pros: "I have never been treated so poorly by counter people in my life!"
Cons: "After 2 hour delay, the flight was cancelled. NO ONE helped to find another flight. After waiting in line for 2 hours, the ticket agent handed me a card and said I had to call the 800 number. The person on the phone said I had to talk to ticket agent to go standby on a flight to Munich and the ticket agent told me I had to call. I was caught in a loop and no one helped. Then when it became apparent I wasn't getting out that night I was informed that there were no hotel vouchers and I would have to find my own hotel! After searching for an hour for a hotel (all were sold out in Boston) I called a friend who lives outside of Boston. No one gave me a taxi voucher because it was not to a hotel. LUFTHANSA customer service is the WORST!!!!!!!!"

Cons: "I was told there was no meal included because of the fare I paid. I paid $1100.00. I have never experienced this, even on round trip cheaper flights and I fly to Europe every year."

Pros: "easy boarding, great flight attendants"

Pros: "Service from Milan to Toronto was good"
Cons: "Service from Toronto to RdU not so good"

Pros: "Also a lovely and comfortable flight"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Crew was ok. Had to manage difficult passengers."
Cons: "No entertainment. Average food. Little space for legs."

Pros: "Very stable aircraft with attentive staff"

Pros: "Loved everything except upcharge for ski bag (no charge on Swiss air for this service) - 1st meal excellent.....2nd light snack (chicken sandwich) not really a home run (sorry.....) - overall excellent experience"

Pros: "Visa for India was not checked in Denver. Landed in Frankfurt and discovered that the visa was expired. Stuck in Frankfurt for 3 nights until new visa was issued. No babes the entire time I was in Germany. Arrived in Mumbai after paying the $350 US change fee and no bags. Bags finally arrived on Monday at 9AM Without clothes, toiletries and medications for 6 nights. Now I am delayed and will probably have to pay rebuke and fare change to extend my stay here."

Cons: "Leg space"

Cons: "There were no Lufthansa representatives in Frankfurt airport upon my arrival. Also my connecting flight wasn't showing on electronic board. I had to get WiFi connection in order to get any info. I was very unhappy about it ."

Pros: "The crew was nice and efficient. The film selection was good. Great interactions with the kids and little gifts/candy."
Cons: "Kids meals we got were not good on this leg (I think it may have been the lasagna, which was basically just gooey cheese and did not taste good."

Cons: "No any intertwine entertainment at all"

Cons: "Walk between connecting flights in Munich was very long (25 minutes) and when we got to the gate for the flight to EWR, there was a very long, and very slow-moving line with only one attendant checking boarding passes for 6 gates. We arrived at the gate and were among the last passengers to board. A last minute additional attendant that was brought on, helped to make the line move a bit faster, but this under-staffed checkpoint added unnecessary stress to our long travel day."

Pros: "The view - flying low over the northern extremes of Canada was superb. Thanks to the pilots etc."
Cons: "The flight was late arriving at Frankfurt. I requested a notification to my connecting flight. Crew member frowned, turned away and in formed me, "We don't do that". I ran to the Connecting Lufthansa flight and barely made it on time."

Cons: "The delay of the flight without thinking of how to take care of the passengers or even appease them after almost 4hours delay"

Pros: "I liked the entertainment options, beverage service, and leg room."
Cons: "I paid to reserve an upgraded seat. I specifically asked for a window seat and even have a confirmation email saying that I got a window seat (27 A). However, when I checked in, I was assigned a middle seat and the representatives at the ticket counter tried to tell me that was my preference. They tilde me to take it up with customer relations. If I pay $100 for a particular seat, I should get that seat!"

Pros: "By far the best flying experience in a long time..."

Pros: "all on time"
Cons: "seating very cramped"

Pros: "Movie choices"
Cons: "Crew was very very rude , special meals were not provided in spite of being confirmed many weeks before"

Pros: "Staff on board was cordial und Wunderbar"
Cons: "Handle on wife's Travel Scoot was slightly bent but it still works."

Pros: "The aircraft, an A320 was stable but cramped and entertainment depended on prior download of the Lufthansa app. Crew was very efficient and professional."
Cons: "Cramped. Seat did not recline AT ALL and very hard. No entertainment unless you downloaded the app beforehand."

Pros: "Everything was great, the entertainment, comfortable and the staff was really kind"

Cons: "Meals served in the 2nd flight wasnt up to the mark."

Pros: "excellent dinner selection movies and on screen entertainment were great"

Cons: "Flight was an hour and a half late!"

Cons: "LH761 was late by an hour and a half. I was not given help to get to my connecting flight LH438."

Pros: "Nothing​ was extraordinary."
Cons: "Seat comfort. Entertainment. Toilets far from the premium zone. Meal choice. Wine choice, headset. All sub par compared to other airlines in the premium economy space. In particular, Qantas is much much closer to business class than to economy class in it's premium economy product. Lufthansa is just not delivering value to this segment."

Pros: "Very friendly personal, good food and drinks."

Cons: "The flight was delayed 1.5 hrs and then completely canceled. They never gave us a reason as to why it as canceled and when they canceled it, they directed the entire group of the people on the plane to 4 different gates before getting a gate agent to tell us that we had to leave the gate and go back to the ticket counter and start over again. The security in Israel is very intense, so this was a big hassle. Then they only had 3-4 gate agents to rebook all 300+ people on the flight so we waited in like for 3 hours."

Pros: "Though our flight was cancelled due to inclement weather in Boston, I cannot say enough about the ticketing agent at the Luftansa desk. she was so incredibly helpful in rearranging our flights to get us where we needed to be as soon as possible. She spent so much time with us and on the phone and was very patient."

Pros: "The flight Crew was very attentive and went the extra mile to keep us happy during our flight, the head stewardess I give her a 10+. we will fly with Lufthansa again. great movies!"
Cons: "The flight from Roma to Frankfurt was late and we had to run what seemed like two miles to be able to catch our connecting flight to Los Angeles."

Pros: "Flight crew was decent."
Cons: "The flight was late in departing and then rerouted from Frankfurt to Manchester causing many passengers to loose connection. The reasongiven was a crew scheduling issue. Compensation upon arrival at Frankfurt was nil unless you asked and if you did you got an insulting 7 euros which barely even paid for coffee. No apology to people given just a "business as usual, it is your problem attitude". At arrival in Frankfurt there was a pass the buck attitude where any questions of connecting flights, and reroutes was forwarded to a Lufthansa counter that was NOT manned by anyone. Very frustrated."

Pros: "Flight did not happen went to frankfort"

Pros: "The food, the crew, the cleanness and the entertainment"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The movie options where not great."
Cons: "Movie options."

Pros: "Lit hands crew more caring and professional. All good."

Cons: "I paid for a reserved window seat so I could sleep. The passenger next to me was such a large man his arms and shoulder came way over into my seat space and I had to sit in an awkward and very uncomfortable position twisting my back for the entire flight. I cannot believe I paid extra to be in this position. My back still hurts from being in that position for 9 hours. I was miserable the entire way. And I paid extra for this discomfort. The big guy was plenty comfortable as he took up my seat space and slept well. Not happy at all with the flight and how Lufthansa crams people into seats."

Pros: "Flight on time"

Pros: "Great staff and thoughtful professional attention makes travel better!"
Cons: "There were some spaces and I might have done a modest upgrade but not offered when asked at check in."

Pros: "Food choices and service were excellent."
Cons: "I had bulkhead (50A) and that seat gives a little less legroom due to the wall so my feet were often resting against the wall. Plus that seat has the A/V in the armrest which is not allowed to be on during takeoff and landing, meaning I couldn't start a movie until after takeoff and I couldn't watch the flight camera during landing."

Cons: "I took Lufthansa round-trip from the US to Italy. One of the worst long-trip flying experiences I've had. Bad airplanes, with even smaller seats than US carriers, terrible service (attendants were not friendly or pleasant), terrible food. On one of the long flights, the cabin temperature was 75F and passengers were perspiring the whole flight. I will not take Lufthansa again."

Pros: "Comfort, pleasant, and efficiency"
Cons: "Food seems an afterthought in an otherwise top-notch business"

Cons: "This airline charges for everything, and after you pay once, they try to charge you again, and again, and again (four different people tried to charge me 4 different times for my two checked bags). And they lost the record of my payment, so I had to show 4 times the Amex receipt showing that I had paid before. It took 45 minutes and 4 non receptive agents for me to get my luggage checked. British Airways is significantly better."

Cons: "Delay in take off 45 min!!!!"

Pros: "The seats were spacious and the crew was wonderful. The crew actually made the long flight more tolerable. Will seek out Delta/Air France for further international flights."

Pros: "The entire experience was amazing that gives me a broader scope to choose from when selecting flights to Europe. The most amazing part was the attentiveness of the staff. Exemplary!!!!!"
Cons: "For me this part is not applicable"

Cons: "Explain me to take the bag on time.it was almost left in the airport."

Cons: "The craft is a bit old. Harsh landing."

Cons: "See above."

Pros: "Not being charged for my first bag of luggage"

Pros: "The cue lines per zone are a brilliant idea!"

Pros: "The cue lines per zone are the most brilliant idea!"
Cons: "After boarding began there was a backup after the gate en route to the plane. No explanation. The plane left an hour later than scheduled but seemed to arrive close to scheduled time."

Cons: "Baggage check in was stressful"

Cons: "If you have to change planes and Paris is your middle person. Leave at least 2-3 in between the two flights otherwise you might not make it."

Pros: "It was only 2 hours"
Cons: "Small plane, no movies"

Cons: "Couldn't make the connection....Overall....an aweful experience!"

Pros: "They closed boarding early"

Pros: "My luggage was lost and had to wait 2hrs."

Pros: "EVERYTHING"

Pros: "The plane itself had nothing wrong with it. They gave me priority boarding because I had a musical instrument with me as my carryon, and then let me put it in the flights crew closet so it wouldn't get damaged. I appreciated that."
Cons: "Flight check in was an unbearably long process, in a hot and stuffy area. Once through check in, the passport check line took over an hour. 100-150 people all corralled in like cattle, while ONLY ONE agent was checking passports to enter the security area. This was outside the secure area!!! Anyone could have entered here and executed a terrorist attack with large casualties. It was unsafe, uncomfortable, and unreasonable. Shame on you Paris Airport. Then the flight was late on arrival, and late again on departure, causing me to miss my connection to Los Angeles. This opened up a whole new list of botched customer services."

Pros: "Excellent aircraft, seems very new. Main meal served (I had vegetarian option) was great. Blankets provided were very nice. Good entertainment."
Cons: "The smaller snack served later in the flight was not good. I had the vegetarian option, and the items in the box were meant to be served at room temperature but I believe the box had been heated up with the regular meals, and everything in the box was piping hot - chocolate bar was melted, mustard packet was hot, lettuce on sandwich was wilted, dried fruit mix was hot."

Cons: "plane didn't leave for 45 minutes"

Pros: "The flight crew was lovely, everything went off without a hitch."
Cons: "I've never seen such snotty behavior from an airline in my life. The ground crew in the airport BOTH at LAX and at Charles De Gaulle were impolite, rolling their eyes and sighing when I asked them some questions about my transfer from British Airways to Air New Zealand. I was surprised by this, given that British Airways is supposedly a prestigious airline and should have some customer service training. If given a choice, I wouldn't fly with them again."

Pros: "Short flight, on time , no complaints ts"

Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Great"
