Lots of new movies to watch and games to keep you entertained."

Pros: "on time and excellent service"

Cons: "The only bad experience was when we were boarding, and I asked whether I could take a newspaper and the business class flight attendant snidely said that it was only for business class. I understand the comment, but her expression and tone were unnecessary."
Pros: "I wasn't interested in the meal which i would eat in airplane before i got on the plane. So, without any expectation i got the meal. It tasted good and the service after meal was also good. If i have a chance later, want to take air Japan again."
Pros: "The crew was excellent, constantly checking in with us to make sure we were okay since we don't eat the airline food."

Pros: "They provide us slipper for in flight comfort"
Cons: "Old aircraft"
Pros: "the crew was extraordinarily helpful in getting me through customs with my luggage which i was lead to believe did not need to be looked at in Tokyo because it was checked through to Osaka by finding me taking me back through customs and onto the flight in time for its departure. JAL's crews on both flights and the ground personnel were very courteous and always extremely helpful."
Pros: "As always on JAL 787-8 long haul flights, the crew was very courteous, entertainment was varied, food was alright and seats were better than some."

Pros: "Boarding and crew great!"
Cons: "Seats extremely narrow"

Pros: "The crew were very attentive, they tried hard to help me with comfort, drinks etc. I didnt have food as it was so good in the Virgin Clubhouse!"
Cons: "The bed! When you flip it flat its rock hard, and the matress they provide is useless! Need foam matress to really make it more comfotable. If the seat reclined another few inches i wouldnt bother flipping it."
Pros: "Top crew very friendly and professional"
Cons: "Business class food was bizarre for breakfast - a Mexican taco??? Asked for eggs from economy to be back later up"
Pros: "My flight was canceled and Virgin Atlantic gave us a free room in the hotel Ramada. My next flight was at 18:55 and I asked Virgin Atlantic agent am I allowed to stay in the room until time for my flight comes, he confirmed yes and gave me breakfast, lunch, and dinner voucher. However, next day around 12 I got call from Front Desk that I have to leave my room right away because it's time to chack out and If I want to stay longer I have to pay. I called Virgin Atlantic agancy again and the agent run my information and said to me I can stayin the room longer. After that I called front desk to confirm that but they said they didn't hear anything from Virgin Atlantic and I have to leave the room by 1pm. All of this was really unpleasant!"

Pros: "Crew were great. EconomyX is a wonderful seating set up"
Cons: "Very strange boarding. They got us through the boarding process but then made us all wait in the bridge because the plane wasn’t ready. So now you have a plane load of people all crammed into the bridge. Very poor."
Pros: "Easy and on time boarding."
Cons: "Seats are extremely small. And when the seat in front reclines they are basically in your lap."
Pros: "Crew very friendly"

Pros: "Free drinks! Lots of food and good entertainment. Glad to have a free blanket and headphones as well."
Cons: "Economy seating wasn’t that comfortable"

Cons: "Flight was late (again). Food was very little for an international service (small packet of pretzels + savoury muffin."
Pros: "Nothing really!"
Cons: "I was coming from Sydney and I have to hurry up to take the other fly to Newark and didn’t have time to buy for nothing to eat but I was very surprised they didn’t offer me anything on the plane and when I ask they I have buy it online and didn’t have many choices anyway, I very disappointed with this fly."
Cons: "These seats are small"
Pros: "Cool flight, mainly because it was empty. Good food"

Cons: "Everything about my experience was HORRIBLE."
Cons: "Once In London, we were told by British Airways that was flying us to Nice that Delta had “lost” our infant electronic ticket - It took 1.5h to get new ticket reissued! We missed our connection and had to wait 3 more hours for the next flight - We were somewhat lucky as multiple flights were delayed/cancelled that day - I will avoid using Virgin Atlantic in the future as they need Delta and British operate their flights and this makes it prone to issues like that"
Pros: "Francesca was the flight attende t that I had most the most interactions with was very friendly and warm."
Pros: "I loved the movie choice!"
Cons: "The head rest comfortability, could be softer as well as the pillows, they could also be softer."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled ."
Pros: "Amazing food and drinks, and to top it off we were served a frozen ice cream treat during our flight."
Cons: "During my flight from LAX to LHR I requested (pre-booked) a special meal (Asian Vegetarian). During the flight I was told there was no such request in their records and therefore I had to stay hungry for the entire duration of the flight. During my return flight from LHR to LAX the in flight entertainment system for my seat was not functional. I requested it to be reset several times and in spite of the hostess resetting it several times, it did not function. I had to stay without an entertainment system during the entire flight. This was my first time travel with Virgin Atlantic. I may never fly Virgin Atlantic again."
Pros: "Good Virgin experience though food was not brilliant"
Cons: "Seating was very uncomfortable. Hardly any padding in the seats and very little leg room. Far worse than any previous Virgin flight."
Pros: "Efficient service"
Cons: "Entertainment screens were of poor quality"
Pros: "The staff was so helpful and upbeat and somehow they stayed that way the whole 8 hour flight. This was economy btw! More good things: Comfy seat, personal entertainment screen, really nice food. One free checked bag, bathroom was bigger, (it may have been a handicapped bathroom)."
Cons: "Nothing was a problem at all. (I saved "excellent" for the things I really wanted to emphasize)"
Pros: "first time I flew VirginAtlantic. Heard so many good things about it. It fact even our Uber driver was praising the airline on our way to the airport. But once onboard: - poor food (I mean 'survival kit' style) - entertainment station was not working - games feel like 20 years old - design (heavy red) now looks dated and suffocating - hostesses are more focused on their hairstyle than their customers"
Cons: "Back to Air France next time!"
Pros: "Very comfortable and spacious seats, good air circulation and friendly crew."

Pros: "Wifi worked very well"
Cons: "Jave to pay for everything on an overseas flight"
Pros: "very incompetent crew carrying out orders for a very cheap airline."
Cons: "There was nothing to like, attendants were rude, seating was horrible, No room, no snacks, counter persons were even worse, tried to contact virgin australia over 12 times for booking confirm and itinerary, no replies ever, none from HQ in Brisbane. Virgin has NO customer service whatsoever, all they want is to take your money online and do nothing for paying customers. "Paying Customer", remember who we are??? The ones that pay for the worst service in the world. Well done Richard Branson!!"
Cons: "For an international flight, the plane was too small, cramped and uncomfortable. Food had to be purchased. No entertainment what so ever. Previous I took a VA flight to Perth from Melbourne. Same distance, bigger plane, entertainment on seat backs and a meal. This flight soured me."
Pros: "New Dreamliner aircraft was very comfortable with loads of leg room for a tall person like myself at 1.76m"
Cons: "My seat was directly under the aircon and it was blowing very cold all night which made it quite uncomfortable. Fortunately I had an extra blanket which I could wrap over my head."
Pros: "The boarding and the overall flight experience was quite good."
Cons: "There were movie options such as Sully and Deepwater Horizon, which I think are unsuitable for flights. Overall, the movie options could have had more variety."
Cons: "Customer service was horrible - they were so rude on the plane Food was done by the time it was our turn I got food poising off of the breakfast horrible"
Pros: "This was my 3rd time to fly to Brisbane, Australia. Love flying with Virgin Australia. They have great service and friendly staff."
Cons: "I brought my own padded seat, but it is a long flight, so it's best to get up and walk around as much as you can."
Cons: "They tried checking my carryon luggage because they said it was overweight and it would be $130. This is absurd, especially since it isn't going to change in weight by getting checked. I refused to pay this amount. The flight was also 3 hours delayed, almost missed my connection back to the states from SYD. Other international flights offer free meal service, you were lucky if you got water on this flight and had to pay for any snacks."
Pros: "The crew left my breakfast in the sear next to me because I was asleep (unfortunately i didn't notice till I started to disembark...)"
Cons: "I couldn't get comfortable enough to sleep very well, even though I was in a window seat (which I can normally lean on)."
Cons: "Never seen an international flight charges checked in luggage $130 US dollars a piece"

Pros: "Crew was amazing and flight was comfortable"
Cons: "Great flight"
Cons: "Outstanding airline either to IST or beyond!"
Cons: "For such a LONG flight, grateful to ask Turkish Airlines to make available bigger aircrafts."
Pros: "Yes.The crew was amazing"
Cons: "To have a variety of foodstuffs especially the soft drinks. Hot Tea wasn't really hot.Just warm."
Pros: "Entertainment, and crew was nice"
Cons: "Seats and food. I had a dietary restriction (no dairy). But instead of giving me poached chicken and boiled potatoes be more creative and put more flavour. It’s lactose free not flavour free"
Pros: "Reliable, high quality service"
Cons: "I will never forget Turkish airlines again. They stole our money. We were at our flight on time but they wouldn't let us board. They then said we were no shows and cancelled all our remaining flights with no refund. This ended up costing us around $3000. We don't have this kind of money and I don't know how we will pay rent next month."
Pros: "crew and service are great."
Cons: "the last leg, Istanbul to DC was completely full. i was seating at the back (33K). after the meal, i wanted to recline and the man behind me started yelling as he has water on his table. i apologized and asked if i can recline the seat and he yelled again and said i cannot recline my seat. i talked to the flight attendant and she wanted to move me to a middle seat. i declined and eventually the man said i can recline my seat. but i mean, seriously, i got yelled at for trying to recline my seat and got no apologies from anyone."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "They pack biz seats in 7 across. Most airlines go with 6 across. Lack of space and they charge the same as other airlines. Low value for the money charged. Much better value using if you use any other airline."
Pros: "We get turkey on time waiting in the air port for 9:30 hour then we get the plane and waiting two more hours on the ground so the flight very tiering I will never take Turkish airlines again in the pass never happened I don’t know happened to the management ???"
Cons: "My flight take 32 hours the price not worth it ,,, they said if you stay ten ours they give us a hotel room they did not they give us a sorry meal ,,, the food court very crowded and mangment"
Cons: "Boarding. The gates were cheep changing. Poor room between seats."
Pros: "Organized overall"
Cons: "Cabin way too cold"
Cons: "Didn't happen. My first leg to Athens was canceled which created a humongous headache since it ended up canceling my return flights. Air Canada had to put me on completely new flights there and back. I think this has taught me to go directly through an airline. Justfly was not helpful. Neither was Turkish airlines."
Cons: "Had a layover in Toronto. From Toronto we flew to Istanbul and then Venice. While waiting in line to board in Toronto, I was told my carry-on luggage was too big and needed to be put under. I asked MULTIPLE times where my luggage would be- either Istanbul or Venice (final destination) and EVERY time I asked, I was told my luggage would be waiting for me in Venice. Once we arrived in Istanbul I asked AGAIN if my carry-on luggage was here or if it would be in Venice and I was told it would be in Venice. Once we arrived in Venice, my luggage was nowhere to be found. The lost luggage crew (and 90% of the people in Venice) were completely rude and acted like we were a huge inconvenience for them. (I've heard that many Europeans cannot stand Americans, but we were not being rude or obnoxious at all to anyone- we just wanted a quiet, romantic vacation.) So safe to say that it was an extremely rough start. We were in Venice for the Glass Art Society Conference in Murano and due to my luggage being lost, had missed the first day and a half, therefore wasting hundreds of dollars. Luckily my boyfriend's phone worked in order to spend our first two days of vacation (not to mention the amount of money spent on international calling costs) tracking down my luggage, but again dealt with completely rude people who barely helped us with any answers and even hung up on us multiple times (and I'd like to add that despite my frustration, I made sure that I was not speaking rudely one bit). The best answers we received were from the people at the Istanbul airport who told us that Venice received my luggage hours before I even called Istanbul- which I do not understand why the Venice airport did not tell me this because I spent all day speaking with them. Once I called back the Venice airport to confirm what the Istanbul airport told us, they said (once again rudely) that they called me on my phone but did not answer (which I already told them that my phone did not have any service and to call my boyfriend's phone number). So to sum up: I will never be flying to Venice ever again."

Pros: "Overall flight is good"
Cons: "The crew is really not aware of how to deal with passengers of various levels. They don't seem to have the sense of responsibility..."
Cons: "Our flight from Kathmandu was delayed so we missed our connecting flight to Vienna. We don't know why it took so long to organize the hotel. Turkish Airlines was ready with new boarding passes but we waited two hours at the hotel desk to get a bus to the hotel where we again had to wait till they gave each passenger a room. If they organized the boarding passes ahead of time, why not the hotel? So we were quite exhausted. The plane was again delayed leaving Istanbul. Movies on flight not what they used to be."
Pros: "Luggage policy, helpful ground and air crew. Price."
Cons: "IST stoppover, damaged luggages."
Pros: "Everything was well taken care of."
Cons: "When boarding the flight from Turkey, to Mumbai , we had to climb up the ladder with our hand luggage.Being senior citizen and traveling in Busniss class was very hard for us."
Cons: "I was selected to seat near the window before departure dare unfortunately i found my self in the middle of the people, so dissapointed"
Pros: "Baggage allowance of two 23 kg checked bags each. Meals very good including specially ordered vegan ones."
Cons: "Delays in boarding and takeoff from Istanbul to Boston caused flight to arrive 1 hour late which messed up ground arrangements. This may have been because of new Turkey - USA visa issue which just took effect. Refueling was also late. Note: the Istanbul airport is quite dated; restrooms at airport not very clean."

Cons: "If you sit the the second cabin on the 777 they run out of buns and champagne by the time they get to you which is unacceptable for business class and they only finished the meal service 2 and a half hours into a 10:30 pm departure flight which is way too slow. They tried to lie to me that they didn't have champagne but I saw them opening 2 bottle when I went to the front lavatory. Between meal services crew is non existent."
Cons: "Didn't get to Instanbul or my destination of Budapest. There were mechanical Issues that I was told were weather issues. I was delayed over 12 hours, missed two connections and given the runaround about getting a place to stay for the night. The shuttle service provided took another hour at 2am! $47 to cover four meals and no mention of flight credit on my first leg for the HUGE inconvenience. A direct flight to Budapest a 27 hours after the fact is the best they could do and wanted to charge me a change fee too!! My vacation is cut short by this mess and my travel companions already in country are waiting on me to get their trip started. I will not be using Air Canada or Turkish air until they can communicate between one another and provide at least average customer service. So, it's safe to say that it will be the 12th of NEVER when I fly Air Canada"
Cons: "It never happened."
Pros: "Usb chargers"
Pros: "Food was pretty good."
Cons: "Crew was disorganized. Half the plane didn't get the bread that was supposed to be on the breakfast menu. Service was slow and not enough crew.

Seats were more cramped than most airlines (and I'm short)."
Cons: "Had a nine hours layover and I couldn't even entre the Turkish airlines lounge. The airport in Istanbul also had terrible wifi connection. I would not fly this route again"
Pros: "Plane was clean and comfortable. Crew were courteous. Hot sandwich tasted great."

This is the last time we take Turkish airline!!!!!!We won't recommend to our friends or relatives to take as well."
Pros: "Great entertainment selection."

Cons: "I will say the flight to Orlando including an upcharge of $100 for a bag that was 10lbs overweight. I was INCREDIBLY frustrated at the crazy price. I understand fees would apply to overweight bags but $100???? Kind of ridiculous"

Cons: "Quicker way to get off plane"
Pros: "Flight attendants thank SkyMiles members by name at some point during the trip, very friendly."

Cons: "There was no entertainment on second flight but I didn’t use it anyway On second flight washroom was not very good my scarfe dropped on the floor and was wet and yuckie"
Pros: "Even in the absolute freezing (-40F) the plane landed an hour early into Minneapolis. Was only delayed 20 minutes leaving. Crew did amazing to get the plane going."
Pros: "William the flight attendant was very friendly and provided great service! When the row next to us was open he suggested me to move over, making the flight spacious and comfortable!

Pros: "The service was impeccable as always"
Pros: "Entertainment. Large overhead compartments. Clean."
Cons: "The temperature in the plane was too hot and made for a very uncomfortable flight. The individual air conditioner spewed out hot air. My kids and I took off as much clothing as possible and still remained hot. We were putting ice on our wrist to try to cool down! I sat with my hand against the window to capture some cool air. We were in Row 37. I am not sure if we were in a hot seat or if the other passengers experienced the same."
Cons: "I booked through kayak and received an e-mail saying "you're booked!" with a flight itinerary and everything and then I got to the airport and they told me I had no ticket to get on the flight and no payment had ever been made and that to get on the flight I would have to pay over $1000 for a seat !!!! The original ticket I bought was under $400. I was NOT happy with this at all - Kayak screwed me over and I expect compensation."
Cons: "No meal service in first class."
Pros: "Plenty of room, on time"
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly. We were on time. Attendants were excellently friendly and efficient. That is so nice to not have a grumpy flight attendant. Drinks are ridiculously priced, but I wasn't suprised. Great flight."

Cons: "No entertainment for the whole 5 hr flight. Very bad"

Pros: "Very informative staff"
Cons: "Was late"
Cons: "Flight was booked via Princess for a cruise. Flight from Vacoouver to LAX was through Delta partner Westjet. One schedule number and flight number for Delta, a different set of numbers for Westjet. Westjet requires you call them for seat assignment for a fee. Just not smooth!"
Pros: "Long flight but smooth despite delays"
Cons: "Delayed by 2.5 hours."
Cons: "The comfort seating on this aircraft was not as good as other Deltaflights. No extras or service."
Pros: "I was traveling with my young daughter (3 years old) and wife. The crew was really welcoming and accommodative of us. My little girl got the Delta wings pin (including a second one when she lost the first one), and was able to visit the flight deck. Extra kudos for my daughter being able to see a female pilot! :-)"
"Not having 2hr delays would be great"
Cons: "There was loud, annoying static over the intercom off and on."
Pros: "Nice crew short flight."
Cons: "Not much flight was too short to say"

Pros: "Seat super comfortable!"
Cons: "Food service could've been better"
Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "Lufthansa continuosly treats repeat customers like milk cows. The new ‘light fare’ is a genius way to charge the same as before with ZERO customer support."
Pros: "The food was really good! I don’t expect much from airlines but I feel like I got a real meal on board (two of them!)"
Cons: "We were delayed taking off and there were three screaming babies, but there’s only so much they can do about that."
Pros: "The crew was polite and efficient. Moved very well around sleeping passengers sprawled feet. The shortcomings of the flight had to do with being in a tail section of an economy class in a packed transoceanic flight."
Cons: "At the beginning of the long flight the cabin was chilled, which made me happy I had my hooded sweatshirt with me, but at the end it was hot and stuffy. There was no air regulation available from the seat, only light."
Pros: "Staff was helpful and kind. Entertainment had variety."
Cons: "Flight ran out of chicken meals fast, forcing the rest of the plane to have vegetarian instead. I was sat in 41G. Awkward seating arrangement. Worst seat ever! Super cramp, making a 9hr flight very uncomfortable."
Cons: "They lost my luggage during the tranfer in Frankfurt. They did return it however within 24 hours."
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: "Cabin crew was extremely friendly, welcoming, and provided good inflight service."
Cons: "The boarding was very chaotic. Very few institutions or announcements made by ground crew. Passengers weren’t sure where to queue being that there were multiple gates for the A380-800 and were left asking each other and comparing boarding passes. Little to no air circulation in economy."
Cons: "It was Air Canada. Terrible service. Staff needs education on where to take travelers thru the immigration locations. Wasted time going to different locations and time is an essentence! Too many changes of staff from one location to another when it came with wheelchair assistance. One staff was on her personal phone!!! Had 3 different changes of hands then still did not get us to the right terminal, had to run to make the flight! Is that how you treat a 86 years old traveler?"
Cons: "Few toilets for two sections and seats too close, if it is not uptight the seat in front of you. You can not enjoy and watch movies."
Pros: "Service was excellent, food was good, everyone was friendly and nice."
Cons: "Everything was OK."
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew"
Pros: "Same as above same as a bove"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Their airport service is outstanding. We were traveling with a mobility challenged person and they were so helpful in getting us through check in, out to our gate, and through boarding."
Cons: "The service and staff on the plane are top notch, and the meals and drinks were very satisfying. The entertainment center on each seat had enough choices to pass the time. I rate Lufthansa a very good choice for trips to Europe, and will use them on my future trips."
Cons: "We were put on standby. We expected our names to be called for seat assignments but we didn’t expect we could just swipe our boarding pass and our seat assignment would show. It’s a nice feature but I didn’t like that it wasn’t clearly explained to us."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight. Excellent take off and landing. Liked the extra legroom in coach for a bit more $$. Super friendly & professional crew. PA system was very difficult to understand."
Cons: "the food was a bit bland. Selection of movies very limited"
Cons: "never got to goddamn frankfurt"
Pros: "Helpfun plane crew"
Cons: "Flight got delayed. We got put ln differnt flight thru san Francisco. Another flight got delayed. When we got transfer no one told us we have only bearly 1 h to catch the next place to Germany. They assured us we will make it twice. We missrf the plane to Germany over 30 min. San Francisco airport horrible. No one gave us any information. They didnt know wfere is what. No one helped us."
Pros: "Was a very smooth trip."
Cons: "The seat rows were so crammed together, you could hardly get out of your row."
Pros: "Crew looked after me after a family took up a whole row including my designated seat. I need up with the back row to myself so could put my feet up & chill after a less than pleasant 5+ hours wait at Munich!"
Cons: "It seems like my gluten free meal request did not go through. But I must admit it, It could also be my fault"
Cons: "Flying for funeral and they changed my destination from 2 flights to 3 because of a 3hr delay. Nobody cares about your wellbeing"
Cons: "There was no entertainment in the flight , which was totallyfine for me as it was a short flight; I downloaded one magazine prior to my initial flight in SFO but was unable to access it."
Cons: "Delayed by two hours. Made me miss my connection. Also it is far too cramped for anyone who is tall. We need more leg room"
Pros: "In the end I made the flight."
Cons: "Couldn’t add my baggage online thus resulting in a penalty for paying at the airport. Also ticket was booked by Kayak as a standby without alerting me."
Pros: "The flights were on time, we made a 1 hr 5 min connection with no fluster. Dinner was one of the best airplane meals, breakfast a little less so"
Cons: "Luggage was held up at baggage claim over 45 minutes, therefore we missed our connecting flight. Had to argue with desk to get rebooked the following morning. Overall took about 2 hours from the time we received our luggage til we got to hotel !! After a 9 hour flight, we were done!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Great crew. Leg room reminded me of old days flying comfort."
Cons: "Flight was continually delayed, 15 by 15 minutes until 4 hours had elapsed."
Cons: "Needed more option in sports. Specifically Cricket"
Pros: "The app made it so easy. It is like your personal assistant with you telling you about your trip. No delays no major issues. I also liked the seats."
Cons: "They tell you to download the app for entertainment but it doesn't work. No entertainment on the flight and no food unless you pay. The service sucked."
Cons: "Due to repair aircraft equipmen, almost 1h delay my flight."
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above."
Cons: "This was an Air Canada flight. Time in line to check baggage in Frankfurt was 2+ hours, baggage was lost but arrived the next day at our destination. Unable to check-in online ahead of time for unknown reasons. Overall the Air Canada ground experience was pretty bad, but the crew/meals/entertainment was good."
Cons: "Plane was very late; boarding late; short flight so no food or entertainment, but not really a problem. Overall condition of plane was mediocre at best -- old plane, not particularly clean. It was actually Air Canada. If that is a partner of Lufthansa, very disappointed. Would not fly Air Canada again, but LOVE Lufthansa."
Pros: "Airline crew very friendly and courteous throughout entire flight"
Cons: "Where to begin? During the booking process, there was no indication my travel partner and I would be flying Air Canada, and not Lufthansa. We were seated in the last row of the plane with painfully little legroom — even for two women of relatively small stature. The plane was not equipped with modern conveniences of operational wifi, music, or any other means of entertainment over the ten-hour flight. We were nearly an hour late to depart, but were unable to hear anything over the speakers regarding the cause for the delay, nor could we hear any of the flight attendants' safety instructions. What we could hear, however, was the surprisingly loud and nearly constant DINNNGGGG of the passengers' call buttons as they summoned the flight attendants. Because the flight was an overnighter, we attempted to sleep, but it was nearly impossible to do so due to the noise. I had earplugs in and could still hear the chimes, which were positioned right above our seats and made for an unpleasant experience and cranky travelers. The food was subpar as expected, but it would've been nice to be surprised with something resembling a fresh piece of fruit or vegetable. The flight crew was polite and one of the attendants took pity on us and offered a complimentary shot of whiskey, which partially alleviated the discomfort of the experience. That man is a saint and we surely hope he is better taken care of by this airline than we were. Overall a miserable experience. Will definitely rethink flying both Lufthansa and Air Canada in the future."
Cons: "Flight delayed. Pilot told us we would arrive on time anyway, but we were very late and our luggage did not make the connecting flight."
Pros: "I liked the entertainment part: movies are good, crew was pretty nice"
Cons: "I didnt like the boarding process bacause it wasnt in order, also airplane crew started feeding passangers in 3 hours!!! after we took off. I started thinking that it is not included in my ticket!"
Pros: "Lufthansa seems to have friendlier more helpful customer service than does Webjet's customer service."
Cons: "Webjet customer service didn't seem very friendly or concerned about helping to request fees waived from themselves and Lufthansa."
Pros: "I was so pleased with all the people involved from ticket desk to pilots and stewardesses. I would recommend Air Canada to everyone."
Pros: "I liked the in flight movies"
Cons: "Can't say there was anything I didn't."
Cons: "They lost my luggage. I don't understand why there isn't an arrival scan and how airlines don't take more responsibility for bags"
Pros: "Direct flight, separate spacious toilets, decent food"
Cons: "It's a good flight overall"
Cons: "Μy flight experience was good overall. My husband was in the same flight from Munich to Sevilla. His luggage never arrived to Sevilla. We are still trying to locate it. We fly frequently and this is the first time we had our luggage lost. Eleni"
